Renee Graziano, Drita D’avanzo, And Natalie Guercio Support Alicia DiMichele Garofalo Leaving Mob Wives

Mob Wives Launch Party

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,” Renee acknowledged.


And Renee supports Alicia's reasoning. “She is a mom and has to do what she needs to do for her three beautiful children, who don’t deserve to be pulled through the mud. She is doing the right thing leaving the show, and I wish her all the best.”

Natalie Guercio, whose had serious ups and downs with the show, also spoke out in defense of Alicia's decision to leave. “Alicia had a story to be told, and she did it with class. Alicia has inspired so many young women around the world, including myself, with her strength, courage and her will to fight and survive…," Natalie gushed. "Now it’s time for her to focus on herself and her family. I’m very proud of her and support her in her decision: Family over everything!” 

One person who is not happy to see Alicia go is Drita. “I was shocked. I’m not happy about her resigning," Drita admitted. "I don’t want her to leave. I mean, she has to do what’s best for her family, and obviously I’m on her side whatever road she chooses to take. She had a very hard time on this show.”

And despite her regret to see her friend go, Drita does feel it was the right decision. “All her f**king business ends up everywhere whether it’s true or not. It’s awful.”

As for now, Alicia admits she's "nervous" about her fate, but remains hopeful. "I have faith," she says. “I know if I have to [serve time], I’ll be fine.”
