VH1 has introduced a new group of women for new spin-off show Mob Wives Chicago set to premiere in the spring.

The Mob Wives series follows the women whose husbands or fathers are doing time for crimes that are connected to the Mafia. The first series focused on six Staten Island women.

The new cast includes Reene Fecarotta Russo, Nora Schweihs, Pia Rizza, Christina Scoleri and Leah Desimone.

Russo was raised by her uncle 'Big John' Fecarotta after her father passed away. Fecarotta was Russo's mentor and best friend, but he was shot by fellow mobster Nick Calabrese. Russo still follows the "code" after the death of her uncle.

Schweihs is the daughter of the late Frank "The German" Schweihs, who is considered one of the most notorious hit men for the Mob and is rumoured to be involved with the death of sex symbol Marilyn Monroe. Schweihs returns to Chicago to find where her dad's body is.

Rizza is living her life as the daughter to a "rat". Rizza's dad Vincent Rizza was a Chicago cop who worked for the mob, only to testify against the Mob and be put in the Witness Protection Programme.

Scoleri is the daughter of Raymond Janek, who is a one-time thief and alleged fence for the Mob. Scoleri is an unemployed, divorced mother who is struggling to provide a stable environment for her 9-year-old daughter.

Desimone is the the over-protected daughter of William "Wolf" DeSimone, who has "retired" from the Mafia. Desimone never asked what her dad did for a living and continues to keep her dad's job a secret.

Last year, the cable network picked up Mama Drama, a new reality series about mothers acting like 'party girls'.

VH1 is currently airing rapper TI's reality show TI & Tiny: The Family Hustle, which was shot after TI served his time in prison on a weapons charge.
