New Mob Wives Star Alicia DiMichele Garofalo Awaiting Sentencing For Embezzlement Charge; Caught Selling Counterfeit Designer Clothes!
Last week Ramona Rizzo spilled the beans that she, Karen Gravano, and Carla Facciolo will not be returning for the upcoming season of Mob Wives. In their place, supposedly, is Alicia DiMichele Garofalo!
The boutique owner, who currently lives in South Jersey and is married to reported Colombo associate Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo Jr. will be joining the cast to cause may-jor drama! Alicia's father-in-law is Edward Garofalo, the mobster that allegedly arranged the hit on Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, otherwise known as Karen's father. I wonder if her inclusion has anything to do with Karen leaving the show?

But alas, she's also got her own legal problems – of course! First of all, she's awaiting sentencing associated with a federal embezzlement scheme concocted with her husband Edward.
Somebody has been tawking to Teresa Giudice!
Aaaand that's not all – Alicia owns two boutiques called Addiction Boutique, located in South Jersey and in Philadelphia. Unfortunately she's found herself in a bit of a copyright violation!
She's been hawking baby clothes and accessories with "logos and fabrics associated with Gucci, Louis Vuitton and Burberry," says the NY Post.
Alicia brilliantly posted photos of the obvious knockoffs online for all the world to see. "Gucci and LV inspired onsies❤ #addictionboutique #getaddicted," she wrote advertising the pseudo designer duds.
According to a source, Gucci, who is owned by The Gucci Group, is taking legal action against Alicia for trademark violation and selling counterfeit goods. Gucci is currently in litigation with Addiction Boutiques over bibs bearing their likeness and logo. So, yeah… she'll fit right in!
Quick question: how will Alicia have time for reality TV if she's behind bars? Photos of Alicia are below!
