Drita D'Avanzo Net Worth
|Net Worth:||$1 Million|
Drita D'Avanzo net worth: Drita D'Avanzo is an Albanian reality television star who has a net worth of $1 million dollars. Drita is best-known for appearing on the VH1 reality series "Mob Wives" from 2011 to 2016. She also appeared on several episodes of the short-lived spinoff "Big Ang".
Drita Selmani was born on February 6, 1976 in New York City. Her parents were Albanian immigrants. Her home life was quite traditional and conservative, so her parents were reportedly not pleased about Drita's future, criminally-inclined husband.
In 2000 Drita married to career criminal Lee D'Avanzo. In 1998 he was convicted of burglary in Essex County, New Jersey. Just a few years later he received a 5-year sentence for selling marijuana. In 2003 he was sentenced to 62 months in federal prison after being convicted of racketeering, marijuana distribution, money laundering and loansharking. In 2009 he was convicted of burglary. Consequently, for much of their early marriage Lee and Drita did not spend much time together. Lee is a former member of the New Springville Boys, and an associate of the Bonnano crime family. Lee is also the former boyfriend of fellow "Mob Wives" cast member, Karen Gravano, which created some tension between Drita and Karen over the years.
In December 2019 both Lee and Drita D'Avanzo were charged with firearms and drug possession after a search warrant was executed at their home. The charges against Drita were dropped but Lee eventually pleaded guilty to the charge.
Drita and Lee have two daughters with her husband. She freelances as a make-up artist and is developing her own cosmetic line.
