Edward GarofaloAlicia is the wife of alleged Colombo gangster Edward “The Tall Guy” Garofalo (whose father was allegedly killed by Sammy “The Bull” Gravano).

Alicia’s husband Edward Garofalo is a tough cookie. He comes from a family filled with criminals. His father Eddie Garafola aka Cousin Eddie was arrested in 1985 for tax evasion, racketeering, stock fraud and money laundering. Eddie owned a construction company. He was part of the Gambino crime family. They were one of the five families that coined the term Mafia in the 1950′s and 1960′s. It was lead by Carlo Gambino until 1976. The mafia was involved with gambling, loansharking, extortion, money laundering, prostitution, fraud, hijacking, pier thefts, and fencing. They had connections to criminal organizations in Cuba. The mafia was also associated with the legendary John Gotti who was responsible for killing one of the former members to become the head of the organized criminal family.

Edward had been involved in crime since he was a teenager. He followed his father’s footsteps which lead him to a multitude of trouble. His father was killed by Sammy The Bull Gravano who was his father’s brother in law. Edward’s father Eddie had married Salvatore (Sammy’s sister). In the late 90′s John Gotti went to Edward Garofalo to plot a hit against Sammy. Edward had made several trips to Arizona where Sammy lived to set up the hit. Edward was indicted on murder charges and plead guilty to murdering his cousin.

What’s even crazier is that Karen Gravano is the daughter of Sammy the Bull who allegedly killed his father in 1990 which is why she isn’t on the show this season! Edward will not be on the show but we will be able to hear his voice as he speaks to his wife on the phone!

Alicia also spent some time in jail and was arrested the same time her husband was. She was given a smaller sentence about 10 years ago in 2004.

Their men, family members and exes are in jail or dead from a series of illegal activities. Alicia and Natalie are holding their family down despite the potential implications. Mob Wives: New Blood premiered December 5th 2013. It was a rocky road initially once the beloved cast members Big Ang, Renee and Drita were introduced to the new girls. The guards immediately came up and claws came out. Throughout the season bonds were formed and some were broken. New Blood might just be the best season yet.

Since her husband’s arrest she has been an emotional wreck. She’d also been on the prescription drugs Lexapro, and now Xanax, to deal with debilitating depression and anxiety that she’s had since childhood, she said. She battles recurrent panic attacks, too. Alicia DiMichele sees a psychiatrist once a week. A complete and utter mess and after doing her jail time in 2012 hopefully being on the show will give her some financial backing because she claims that she is broke. But her husband who is now incarcerated allegedly had almost $1 million in cash stashed for her and their three kids to take care of. Who really knows? She did file for bankruptcy about ten years ago. They currently live in Marlton South New Jersey.
