Lena Pirelli from "The Diamond Collar," whose full name is Madelena Pirelli, stars in the OWN reality docu-series.

Lena Pirelli is the love of James Guiliani's life and together they own and operate The Diamond Collar. She's a no-nonsense, straight-talking force of nature who can give as good as she gets.

Her love for animals started when she was very young. As a teen, Lena rescued her first abused puppy. His name was Keno and they lived together for 18 years, setting Lena firmly on the path of rescuing abused and unwanted animals.

Today, Lena takes in strays, fights to rehouse abused animals and adopts cats and dogs that others wouldn't take in. She has saved countless lives, with her most well-known rescue being James.

When Lena met James eight years ago, he couldn't stand animals; his only love was the mob life. As he moved away from a life of crime and towards a life of rescuing animals, Lena has been his number one teacher and advocate. James is still tough, and it takes a strong woman to put up with his wise guy ways, but Lena is every bit his match.
