Made in Staten Island

Recommended Posts

Yuck.  It's bad enough the children of everyone from Will Smith to Yolanda Foster get fame heaped on them for no reason, now we have to have mobster's kids foisted on us?

These kids are a mess.  It’s barely watchable but I’m entertained by the ridiculousness of it all 

Holy Cow Karina has a FiveHead ! Hey Karen G. stop trying to make your daughter catch on...it ain’t gonna happen.  She ain’t gonna get “Snooki” rich n famous

Karina keeps going in and out of her Staten Island accent.  Probably because she grew up in Arizona.

OMG.  I thought this was going to be something to laugh at and make fun of but it's not. 

This is the most depressing thing I have seen in a while.   These kids are losers, and it's not because they don't have any idea of what they want to be, it's how they carry themselves.  These kids are broken and sad, and they need therapy to build up their self-esteems.

C'mon, these are like the kids of the characters of the Sopranos.  Your parents (at least if they aren't douchers)  don't want this for you.  You gain nothing from trying to be a gangster.  Cause you are not.  You are a Wannabe's.  

and I keep calling them kids because that's what they are.  Younger than 23, older than 12.  They shouldn't be on this show, they are being exploited.

And Isn't it more tough to not talk about how tough you are.

Typically one of the girls was my student a few years ago . . and this show makes her seem tame compared to what she was like . 

I just wanted to watch an episode to see how reality tv trashed Staten Island as usual but this was just boring .

I loved big Ang. I admit I watched Mob Wives before Big Ang and at the end Ang kept me watching but no. Sammy the bulls  granddaughter,  no. She didn't even grow up in SI. Pretty girl but go do something with your life , please. I Haven't watched the show but the previews were enough. Grown women making fools I can take but clearly katarina's mom (Jennifer?) Is pushing this, gross.

I was flipping thru channels and episode 1 was on again.... it just hit me if you painted the girl ‘Dennie’  green ( she’s the one who goes to college in NJ) , she would look exactly like Princess Fiona , Shreks wife 😂😂😂 Not an attractive girl

I’m dying to know which one was in your classroom. I think I can guess who it was based on your language...

My students have only been on TV because their dumbasses made the news. They were wearing letters on t-shirts at an event to spell out SUPER offensive and ignorant phrases.

Exploiting her kid is apparently the only legal way Karen Gravano can make a living. She needs to just go get a job. She's a sad sad woman with an equally sad daughter.

So the guy CP ( possible attempted murder charges pending ) witnessed & KNOWS  the name of the perp who stabbed another person at a party but won’t say anything cuz he thinks life is Goodfellas or Sopranos and he won’t “rat”  What a low IQ lowlife ! So just let a person who will STAB and possibly KILL another human at a HS party , (probably over something ridiculous ) walk free amongst the rest of us . Hope he got locked up with his criminal father .  

I’m distracted by Karina’s constant touching and pulling at the front of her hair (weave?) ..Sammi used to do the same thing on Jersey Shore.

i think the twins Joe(?)& Taylor(?) might not equal triple digits if you added their IQ’s together

I can't believe there are no hairdressers on "the island" that don't tell her that her forehead is not her friend. I get it that the middle part is obviously the trend on "the island", but trends aren't for everyone. That's all I got from this mess of show. It's very sad that these kids are so pathetic so young.

And why are they recreating all the nonsense about this kid and his murder trial? He was sentenced and it was resolved the year before this even filmed. So they're basically all just "acting" to try and keep Karen Gravano relevant?

All this talk about rats and no one mentions that Karina’s grandpa is the most famous rat of all time.  Same thing happened on Mob Wives, to a certain extent.  I can’t rememeber how Karen justifies it when it came up, but I don’t understand how her and her family are not completely black balled if being a rat is the lowest of the low.

I wondered how long ago this was filmed, so thanks @hottesthw for the info on CP.  I’m off to see what I can find out about him in real time.

I wonder how this show and Lindsay Lohan’s show are doing on MTV.  I am not the audience for this show, found it boring, so I wonder if younger people find it enjoyable.

I’m not great at this kind of thing, and I didn’t search public records or anything, but the best I could find was an article on starcasm.   Here’s the link, in case it’s considered a spoiler.  🤷🏻‍♀️

https://starcasm.net/made-in-staten-island-christian-cp-patterson-arrest-details/

I also found a couple of other articles that had more info on his dad’s charges, which was some pretty serious shit, involving an overdose among other heroin offenses.

Just deleted it from my DVR schedule after reading this. Not that it was watchable anyway but what horse shit.

Wow. So this guy CP has a criminal record and is 18 but charged as a minor during a crime where he punches & kicks a person ( in effect disabling them from defending themselves or escaping) who is stabbed NINE TIMES by his accomplice .....3 years probation ???? What is wrong with the judge ???? CP is a dangerous perp.

Well, this show has disappeared like a rat into witness protection.  

It'll be back next week at its regular time, AFAIK.

I looked at my scheduled recordings for next week too because it didn't record last night and the show is nowhere to be found.

Quoting from that article:

Quote

It’s unclear whether a Change.org petition calling for the cancellation of the show finally got its wish. The petition, which had been signed by more than 9,000 people as of Tuesday afternoon, reads, “The portrayal of Staten Island as a cesspool of gangsters, meatheads and low lives appears to be main and focus of MTV show development in recent years. The launch of this new show ‘Made in Staten Island’ is just another iteration of the aforementioned."

It is? I don't recall any MTV shows (past or present) besides this was Staten-Island-criminal specific. I mean, maybe Mob Wives (but that was VH1) but still. 

And really...

Quote

"It is built on the premise that kids from Staten Island all grow up surrounded by the mafia in their lives; this is far from the truth.”

...are we all so stupid now that when we watch a show named Chicago Fire that we assume everyone in Chicago is a fireman?

Maybe they are referring to Angelina, the Staten Island Dump?  🤣  Other than that, I got nothing!

Not for nothing, I did actually like this show.  I also liked Mob Wives, too, though.

How come this show gets ghosted and TM2 is like a cockroach that will not die???

I'm wondering if once the article came out that said that CP's trial and whatever was concluded over a year ago and they are just all re-enacting this now as if it's current made them pull the plug.

Honestly, the show was just boring.  Those poor kids as hard as they tried were just not interesting.

Made in Staten Island, for those who find Jersey Shore too intellectual.

What a group of worthless little punks. As an Italian-American from the NYC-NJ area, I find these shows and the stereotypes they further to be extremely offensive.

As for Staten Island, when I was a child, in the 1960's, people used to say that Staten Island was where many white people moved to because they didn't want to live around black and Hispanic people.

I have been trying to remember what show this reminded me of from the past.  There was a show on Oxygen in 2012, in the wake of Jersey Shore, called 'Brooklyn 11223.'  Lasted just six episodes.   It was set in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn and was about twelve Italian-American men and women in their 20s.  There was a Christie and a girl named Joey Lynn.  Lot of talk of "betrayal," is what I recall.  Was most definitely not a hit and a show, I assume, no one watched or remembers.  Anyone remember this? 

There also was one set in Boston on A&E called 'Southie Rules' in 2013 about a three-generation family in South Boston. 

Made in Staten Island reminds me of those shows.

I was embarrassed for myself when I realized I watched all three of these gems. 

Question: There was a show from around the same time about guys living at home and being pampered by their moms like Vinny from JS.  It came and went quickly but I can't remember the name.  Any shot you remember the name?

Let me ask around.  I do admit I also watched My Big Friggin Jersey Wedding (I think that’s what it was called)???  And Jerseylicious.  🤣

Mamas's Boys of the Bronx?

I grew up in Bay Ridge and the people who created that show didn't even get the zip code right. It's not a clubby area at all. Lots of amazing restaurants but an older community.

Hanging my head in shame because I watched all of the reality shows mentioned in this thread. I miss Jerseylicious and Big Ang.
