    "Mob Wives Chicago" has been iced.

    The VH1 reality show featured five women married or related to reputed mobsters in Chicago.

    A spokesman confirmed to the Chicago Sun-Times that the show will not be coming back for a second season after an 11-episode run.

    Cast member Pia Rizza told the newspaper that the Sunday night summer time slot and competition with the Olympics were factors in the low ratings.

    The show was a spinoff of "Mob Wives," which followed the lives of five New York women with husbands connected to the Mafia.

    The Chicago show faced some opposition from an Italian-American group that objected to the Mafia stereotypes, and businesses that would not cooperate with the show.
