Alicia DiMichele Garofalo is in whole heaps of trouble after being embroiled in an embezzlement case. And you know, potentially serving time interferes with your ability to appear on Mob Wives, so Alicia quit the show! With her husband already serving ten-years, she awaits sentencing.
Alicia's official song and dance is that she wants to focus on her kids, which is probably a good idea just in case she heads to the slammer. But she also had a rough time on the Mob Wives. Weighing in on Alicia's departure, Renee Graziano and Drita D'avanzo spoke to Radar Online.
"Honestly, I was a little surprised she joined the cast because of her whole court case. The show didn’t bring her any good, so I can see why she’s pulling out now,” Reneeacknowledged.

Drama and prison seem to go hand-in-hand for most reality shows, but they don't seem to fit together any better than they do on VH1's Mom Wives. Typically it's the men who don't get any airtime due to the fact that they are behind bars for some organized crime related scandal; however, this season's newbie Alicia diMichele Garofalo is potentially facing jail time of her own.
We all watched as Alicia worried about her sons' fate if she ended up in jail for her part in her husband's extortion ring of which she was totally clueless about her participation…or so she claims. I actually kind of believe her. Regardless, with her soon to be ex-husband already serving time, Alicia's sentencing kept being postponed.

The latest lady to be dealing with an incarceration is new star Alicia DiMichele Garofalo, whose husband Edward Garofalo, a Colombo member was just sentenced to 7 years in a federal prison for extortion.
Alicia arrived at the courthouse in her mafia wife best to support Edward with whom she has three children. “I’m here for my husband. I’m just trying to take care of my boys, that’s all," she told NY Post reporters.
Unfortunately Alicia may be doing her own time soon! The newly minted reality star was accused of colluding with her husband by working as his company book keeper and was caught on tape "gabbing about embezzling funds for their now-defunct trucking business."
In a statement about the upcoming season, Mob Wives creator Jennifer Graziano shares, “Philly and New York mobsters have mostly been known to be friendly with one another. The new women were an organic addition to our existing cast as even Natalie has New York roots and ties to some ‘friendly faces.’ Natalie’s spitfire ways and Alicia’s personal story about getting arrested and ‘going down’ with the mob offers a new perspective on what it means to ‘live the lifestyle’ or to be a ‘mob wife.’ We are looking forward to a fresh, new and rejuvenated season!”

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?
Sure enough Alicia has been blowing up twitter and instagram with photos of her posing with Big Ang and Renee Graziano.
