Table-flipping times 10!

On VH1's new reality series Mob Wives, four allegedly mob-connected New York City frenemies -- Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D'avanzo and Carla Facciolo -- are at one another's throats...literally.

Ahead of Sunday's premiere, the women stopped by UsMagazine.com's NYC offices to give fans a glimpse into what to expect this season. (Hint: January's biggest-ever FBI mob sweep will be chronicled on a future ep!)

While some of the women -- including D'avanzo, who has two young daughters -- were admittedly hesitant about taking part in the series, Graziano is eager to debunk stereotypes that often follow families with an alleged mob connection.

"I was looking for a way to express myself and let other people know that this life is not all glitz and glamour," Graziano tells Us in the above clip. "We have so much more to offer than just being wives or daughters of these gentlemen who have been accused of the crimes they've been accused of. We're real people with real issues and I wanted everyone to know the truth."

Tough as nails D'avanzo promises plenty of drama is in store from the get-go.

"This show is like a grenade. You can just hold it and hold it and once that little thing clicks, you get blown the f--k up," D'avanzo says. "Our fights are hard but our makeups are harder."

Mob Wives airs Sunday at 8 p.m. (EST) on VH1.
