Mob stories are always all about the guys. But not this one. Anna Genovese is a New York drag club maven and bad-ass mob wife. Hollywood besties Jessica Bendinger (writer, Bring It On) and Michael Seligman (writer, RuPaul’s Drag Race) are obsessed. They piece together Anna's story, racing between speakeasies, mob informants and former drag queens. But will their heroine's secrets unlock more than they want to know about Anna... and themselves?
Jess and Michael arrive at Anna's gravestone to a bitter surprise. But, their heroine is one step ahead. In the season finale of Mob Queens, Anna Genovese proves she had the last word.
The reason Anna Genovese survived ratting Vito out is [redacted]. This week, Jess and Michael receive FBI files. The hidden portions on the file give them clues that support a growing theory –– and a possible explanation for Anna's actions.
Anna's husband makes it to the top of the American Mafia, but only just in time for it all to come crashing down. As Vito's kingdom burns, Anna's words from 1953 continue to stoke the flames. Now the question remains: how much of it did Anna intend to destroy?
After her day in court, everyone knows Anna Genovese has a real story to tell. But now, she's going underground – literally. As she waits for the judge to decide on her separate maintenance claim, she opens a new nightclub and earns a new reputation that lives on today.
Anna does what no mob wife has done before or since. Her Vito exit strategy looks like a death wish, but the Queen's sacrifice may be her most calculated chess move yet.
A special agent for the US captures Vito in Italy. A Senate Committee in New York makes things uncomfortable for the mob. And tensions reach a boiling point between Anna and her husband, until something has to give.
Jessica and Michael's private investigation tactics pay off, and a new source brings Anna Genovese into sharp focus. What they thought was a story about The Family, turns out to be just as much about family.
Love, money and power never come for free. As Anna's mob status rises, Vito's reign is threatened. The fiery couple face their first major test in marriage, and Michael faces a mystery of his own.
Uncovering the truth takes skill, grit and, apparently, neuroses. A real life private dick shows Jessica and Michael the ropes, as they move their investigation from paper to people. Who is alive to bear witness to Anna's side of the story?
Jessica and Michael retrace the mysterious events that lead Anna Genovese from her first husband to her second. There are two funerals, a wedding and one question that lurks behind each of our heroine’s unbelievable experiences: Is Anna pulling the strings, or is she being pulled?
Anna Genovese's glittery, daring and dangerous life story has been overshadowed by the violent exploits of her mobster husband, Vito Genovese – head of New York's Genovese Crime Family. Now, hosts Jessica Bendinger and Michael Seligman are unearthing Anna's past, and piecing together how she rose from meagre beginnings to become a master player in the mob's ruthless game of chess.
