Poor Ramona Rizzo just can't get a reality TV break! First, no one likes her on Mob Wives and her storyline is ummm…love/hating Drita D'avanzo? Then she gets engaged and her fiance, Joseph Scalfinia, gets locked up for 15 years!
And then, just when she finds a reason to make her TV life interesting and allegedly decides to hold a furlough wedding the feds get wind of her intentions and call the whole thing off. So poof! – no storyline for you, Ramona. So that's life in Ramona-land.
Prosecutors in Joseph's case feared that he was planning to use a furlough – purportedly to see his dying father – as an excuse to get married to Ramona in front of reality TV cameras. The feds pointed out that the "shotgun wedding" was not only illegal but they believed it was a ploy for a television show. You mean these two lovebirds aren't maaaadly in love?! Wha…

Joseph's attorney argued that the couple hadn't even applied for a prison-approved marriage license so there is no way they'd be legally getting hitched (although they could stage a faux wedding for the cameras, of course), but a judge agreed with prosecutors and canceled Joseph's furlough under the condition that only a U.S. Attorney General could approve it.
According to the NY Daily News, Joseph was instead offered a private visit with his father in a Brooklyn courthouse.
Perhaps Ramona and Joseph can just get married behind bars – although I'm not sure reality TV cameras could capture that so it may not be worth it. But then again, they'd have conjugal visits…
As for Ramona she hasn't commented on the "bad news" and instead spent her holiday weekend partying and attending Jerseylicious star Tracy DiMarco's wedding!
