In a world where death before dishonor is a vow, we realize that by appearing in this series on ID, these women must now live in real danger, so we are particularly grateful to them for sharing their stories with our viewers. ~ Henry Schleiff, president and general manager of Investigation Discovery.
Wendy Mazaros has been sharing Vegas Rag Doll in bookstores across the Las Vegas Valley, and now people across the country can see and hear Wendy tell her story as part of Investigation Discovery’s hit series I MARRIED A MOBSTER.
Wendy’s story premieres Wednesday, September 19 at 10 p.m. The recent press release touches on the drama that will unfold in the half-hour show:
When teenager Wendy Mazaros runs away from her Vegas home, she sets a series of tragic events in motion. Wendy’s boyfriend, Teddy Binion, hides her at his father’s casino until he hands her over to a friend, where she soon finds herself imprisoned in a brothel in Texas. After weeks as a sex slave, she risks her life and escapes only to wind up back in Vegas with Binion passing her over like a trophy to Tom Hanley, the most notorious hit man in Vegas. Trapped in her new life, terrified, and acting as a “silent witness” to Hanley, Wendy struggles to survive within the circle of terror. Wendy’s story paints a vivid portrait of the final years of organized crime in Las Vegas from her front-row seat to tragedy, and profiles a woman with a knack for survival.
