We've known for some time that Mob Wives OG Renee Graziano had been in rehab since Oct. 4th but we're just now finding out why she's still there in Miami at Transitions seeking help 6 months later. The truth is she never left after she checked herself in on that fateful day Oct. 4th, 2016. *It should be noted that Renee went to a summerhouse detox center for 14 days first and then went to Transitions Rehab right afterwards.*
Although she may still be in rehab, sources do tell us that she has been able to come and go from the rehab many times to attend red carpet events. She recently attended the premiere party of Dr. Miami with fellow Mob Wives Carla Facciolo. Renee will also be featured on an upcoming episode of Dr. Miami as she got a butt lift. The rehab allowed her to film for Dr. Maimi knowing that she wouldn't be leaving the state as the show is taped in the same town as the the transitions rehab is. Therefore, Renee would still be under doctors care regardless.
The source also notes that in order for her to be able to attend these events and leave rehab, Renee must have someone be with her at all times in case she slips up and relapses.I always have a great time in my friend @bryantmckinnie company ..

She recently attended AJ's baby shower in Staten Island and was back on the island for a few days but, then went back to rehab a few days later.
"I was supposed to only be here for 60 days because that's the maximum that people stay here for but I decided to extend my stay from 1 month-2 months-4 months to now 6 months because I really wanna beat this. I have a purpose again that I never had before, I have my grandson to think about and now AJ's to the point where he's like mom are you ever coming home?" says Renee.
"I personally want to stay here a year but we'll see" explains Renee. Another source tells us that Renee is considering moving to Miami and living there full time. "Renee goes to rehab at transitions at least every 1 or 2 years but only for 60 days. She also goes to rehab when they would be on break between seasons. She once went to rehab for 30 days and then went straight to Yandy Smith's wedding where Karen Gravano met her there to keep a close eye on her. The first time she went to transitions was in 2010 right before she started filming Mob Wives season 1. The fact that she's been there this time for at least 6 months is unbelievable" says the source. "Filming Mob Wives definitely became a part of the problems with my addiction and recovery because I would be put in situations with the girls that I wasn't comfortable with. A big part was that none of them could admit their wrongs so for me that was hard. I always had to be right in the situations too and that's still one of the things that I'm learning in rehab as well" explains Renee. "I'm still trying to figure out who I am. I was Anthony's daughter. Next, I was Junior's wife, then I was AJ's mom. Then further down the line I was the ex wife of the rat who hurt my family" says Renee. "I've come to the conclusion that I'm still that 13 yr old girl Renee who never fully grew up so I'm still a work in progress" Renee explains. We wish Renee all the best and can't wait to the new grandson of the Graziano clan. Be sure to watch the full video interview above.
