Unveiling July 13, I MARRIED A MOBSTER recounts headline-making mafia stories from the point of view of the Mrs. in this companion series to WHO THE (BLEEP) DID I MARRY?, which will make its season two debut the same night.

With hundreds of calls to the station each weekend, Bean is put to the test by experienced law enforcement officers on everything from domestic disputes and narcotics raids to crowd control and drunk driving patrol.
