ABOUT DRITA: Drita D’Avanzo is the wife of Lee D’Avanzo, who federal prosecutors allege is the leader of a Bonanno and Colombo crime family farm team.  While Drita’s husband is serving time in prison for bank robbery (for the second time), she is left alone raising their two young girls and freelancing as a make-up artist.  Drita was raised in the projects of Staten Island after her family settled there from Albania.  Under the aid of her hardnosed father who coached soccer, Drita would be invited to play for the Women’s National Soccer Team until she met her first love and decided against going. After a string of relationships, Drita met and fell in love with Lee. While pregnant with their first child, Lee would be sentenced to 8 years in prison for alleged bank robberies.
Drita realized during this time that she would need something to fall back on and that’s when she started her career as a make-up artist. She has since worked for various high-end cosmetic companies and plans to use her skills and initiative to one day develop her own cosmetic line.
