Victoria Gotti

Sunday, September 27, 2009

Victoria Gotti (born November 27, 1962, in Brooklyn, New York) is a writer, reality television participant and daughter of the late Gambino crime family Mafia boss, John Gotti. In 1984, Victoria married Carmine Agnello and had three children with him (eldest son Carmine, second child John and last but not least Frank).

They were facing foreclosure on the mansion she was awarded as part of her divorce from Agnello. Victoria Gotti was a columnist at the New York Post and US tabloid Star, and has written, Senator’s Daughter (1997), I’ll Be Watching You (1998), Superstar (2000), and Hot Italian Dish (2006).

From August 2004 until December 2005, she was the star of Growing Up Gotti, an American reality television on the A&E Network. The show, which was short lived, also featured her three sons.

The Smoking Gun launched a parody of sorts entitled Blowing Up Gotti, which consisted of family visits to John Gotti while he was in prison that prison officials routinely taped. A&E faced exceptional criticism for the show. Some viewers complained that A&E was showcasing a family living in luxury that was purchased by blood money made by her father, John Gotti.

They felt the network was glorifying organized crime. Many have also complained about the foul language used on the show, as well as the dysfunctional relationship between Victoria Gotti and her sons. said about the show: “Victoria Gotti has the warmth of an ice pick and her sons the charm of, well, thugs.”

In August 2005, she claimed she had breast cancer. However, after being accused of feigning her illness by some media outlets, she admitted soon after her initial announcement that she did not have full-blown cancer but rather had “precancerous cells” present in her breast. Her publicist, Matt Rich, was fired after the false breast cancer incident.
