Yesterday Reality Tea had the opportunity to chat with Victoria Gotti about her feelings about reality TV then and now, her decision to return to reality TV in Growing Up Gotti: 10 Years Later, and what’s changed in her life after reality TV. Victoria also shared an update on her sons’ lives.
Victoria was candid, unapologetic, a dedicated mother, and exactly what you see on TV – which was a refreshing. She was adamant that the ‘blame the editors’ adage so many reality stars cling to is ridiculous, but she also admitted that reality TV has changed over the years. I take it her recent experience on Real Housewives Of New Jersey led her to that conclusion.
Victoria is excited to show viewers how her family has grown since we saw them on Growing Up Gotti, and she maintains that her experiences on that show, and on other reality shows, have been a positive ones, which is why she decided to open her life up the cameras again for an update.
Quoting Al Pacino from The Godfather III, Victoria joked, “‘Just when I think I’m out, they call me back in.’ No pun intended. But I think once you do it, that’s it!” Victoria says she has “no regrets” about participating in the original incarnation of Growing Up Gotti – and neither do her sons. “I loved it! When I was asked to come back, do this, I didn’t hesitate.”
Former reality star and daughter of infamous mob boss, Victoria Gotti, is now facing foreclosure on her Long Island estate.
A New York State Appellate Court ruling may cost Victoria Gotti her Long Island mansion – the five-bedroom, 5½-bath white brick residence might be familiar to viewers of her former reality show – Growing Up Gotti.
“I’m bitter,” the daughter of late Mob boss John Gottisaid. “The house, all the marital assets, are part of a divorce package [from ex-husband, Carmine Agnello], I have never seen yet.” According to reports, Gotti, 46, owes $650,000 to her lender. As the so-called Mafia princess tells the paper, “This should finally put to rest all the government lies and rumors that I have $200 million buried in my backyard.”
Victoria has however vowed to save her home speaking outside Brooklyn Federal Court on Wednesday, “I’m never going to lose the house – trust me. The only way I’m leaving is selling it, and we wanted out of there, anyway.”
