Karina Seabrook is more than just a mob princess.

She may be half Italian, and her grandfather is Sammy the Bull, but the Staten Island queen is out there to prove that she is more than just a pretty face.

Karina stars in MTV’s new show, Made in Staten Island. Here are seven things you need to know about her!

Karina and her Mom Have Already Been on TV

Though she may be a ‘mob princess’, Karina and her mom are not unfamiliar with reality TV.

They should both look slightly familiar!

Anyone remember Vh1’s Mob Wives? Well, Karina’s mom, Karen Gravano, was cast member.

Our girl Karina even made a few cameo appearances when she was just 16 years old.

Her Grandfather is Salvatore ‘Sammy the Bull’ Gravano

Her grandfather is the former underboss of the Gambino crime family.

So, yeah, he’s kind of a big deal.

Karina says that she doesn’t care who Sammy the Bull was and she’s not bothered by the fact that he spent more than 17 years in prison because to her.

To her, he will always be grandpa!

Karina is From Arizona!

This bombshell is originally from Arizona.

Arizona is a state in the Southwest while New York is on the Eastcoast!

Though let’s be real – she loves New York and all that it has to offer her.


She is the Complete Opposite of Her Mother

Both mother and daughter may look similar but they are nothing alike.

In Mob Wives, Karen was known to be somewhat loud and obnoxious and would be never back down.

However, Karina has the opposite approach to drama.

Of course, like mother like daughter, she still loves to get revenge… but on the dirty side.


Karina’s Beau is also on Made in Staten Island

Karina is not afraid to be in the limelight, and that includes airing out the relationship that she has with castmate Paulie Fusco.

She and Paulie have been together for over two years. Paulie even had a mural painted for Karina and a song that he prepared to sing in front of people.

As cute as these two are, Karina and Paulie’s relationships is known to be a big emotional rollercoaster.


She’s Instagram Famous

Though not everyone knows her yet, Karina knows the value of a solid Instagram account.

With a little over 79,000 followers, we’re sure that she will get that all-important blue tick soon.

Karina is Serious about Her Future

During her one-off episode on Promposal, Paulie and Karina almost broke up.

Paulie didn’t like that she was thinking of going to Florida for school. She told him that she’s going to decide what’s best for herself and that he had to be okay with that.

We love a strong and independent queen!
