0312 Screengrab

VH1 is going to make an offer you can't refuse-in the form of a live streaming online video chat with Mob Wives cast members and an interactive Q&A with fans. The 30-minute Web show, premiering March 12 at 3 p.m. ET on VH1.com, will this week feature cast member Renee Graziano and be hosted by TVGuide.com's Lindsay Silberman. The series will begin with a recap of the latest Mob Wives episode followed by opening the floor to daring fans who want to ask Graziano questions face-to-face (virtually via Webcam, of course). VH1's online social widget offers a little more anonymity, with a text-based chat simultaneously posting user comments to their respective Facebook or Twitter accounts. The show, which will also be available on demand on the Website, is the first in a livestream event series initiative entitled "Face to Face With...," which VH1 plans to offer for upcoming episodes of Mob Wives and Basketball Wives.
