Which Mob Wife Tells VH1 Fuggedaboutit And Quits The Show!

Posted on May 10 2014 - 5:25pm by Nancy



Many fans of VH1’s hit show, Mob Wives New Blood, are familiar with newcomer, Alicia DiMichele, 40  and her ongoing legal problems.

The sexy mob wife joined the VH1 reality show so she could improve her “mob” image to the judge. DiMichele earned $8,000-per-episode which prompted prosecutors to argue that she was able to pay a $96,000 fine.

The wife of mobster Edward (Tall Guy) Garofalo, 46 an admitted Colombo Family Enforcer has called it quits after one season on the hit reality show. Reportedly, Alicia submitted her resignation papers to VH1 and plans to focus her time fighting her federal embezzlement case after withdrawing her earlier guilty plea.

Garafalo strongly objected to his wife appearing on show alongside Sammy “The Bull” Gravano’s daughter, Karen Gravano. Lucky thing for Alicia, Karen was not a member of the season four Mob Wives New Blood cast. He was sentenced to 7 years in prison for murder conspiracy, extortion and witness tampering.

The feds charged Alicia DiMichele with helping her husband embezzle $40,000 in Teamsters pension funds from a Staten Island trucking company.

Initially, DiMichele’s lawyer and the prosecutors reached a restitution agreement of $20,000 but the Teamsters Union’s attorney rejected the offer, placing the debt at $2.8 million including 18% interest. After reviewing the agreement, Federal Judge Sandra Townes rejected the plea deal, citing the $20,000 figure was disproportionate to the $2.8 million figure. Judge Townes then offered DiMichele the opportunity to take back her guilty plea. DiMichele jumped at the opportunity, withdrew her guilty plea and plans to fight the case.

    Is there a date set for the next hearing?

    • Not as of last week and nothing current I can find.

    This kind of news has gotten to the point of shaking my head and going ‘DUH!’ They come to reality tv from tiny little Worlds where nobody bothers to say ‘I know you are lying girl’. Do they honestly believe WE will believe the same thing?

    Reality tv is not new. How can it be a surprise when the skeletons fall out of the closet?

    Well, I never trusted those Philly girls. The other one might as well leave, too.

    • LOL! I liked Alicia and Natalie was funny and crazy but Rene is my favorite.

    So, does anybody think that Low Forehead will be given a chance to drop her Guilty Plea and reverse being an admitted Convicted Felon?
    Didn’t think so!
    What a freakin’ Joke that would be. As if The Giudices are smart enough to figure out how to use their brain cells with that much precision. Nope, they were smart enough to believe they wouldn’t get caught doing what they’ve done for 10+ years.
    Tick Tock, Tick Tock….

    • Sociopath’s live and breathe for “duping delight” they truly believe they are smarter than the rest of the world. they can only function by doing illegal acts…duping others….
