Despite no longer being on Mob Wives, Alicia DiMichele was a big topic of conversation on Wednesday night’s part one of the reunion show. The show started off by addressing Karen Gravano’s return to the cast. Natalie Guercio, who repeatedly bashed Karen on social media, said that she did so because of loyalty to Alicia, whose father-in-law was reportedly killed on order from Karen’s father. Karen, backed up by Renee Graziano, said that she finds it ridiculous that Alicia would be so upset over what happened to a man she never knew.
Not surprisingly, Alicia, who has two boys with the currently imprisoned Eddie “Tall Guy” Garofalo, Jr., had something to say about what was said about her. The day after the reunion, she thanked her fans for the support and said that she wished she and her children had the chance to know Eddie’s father.
“Thanks 4 all the Love. My FIL was a wonderful man, I’m very sad that my children and I did not get the pleasure to know him. #LOVE #RESPECT.”
She also posted a message on Instagram that made clear that she won’t directly respond to Karen.
“My Father in Law was a wonderful man, I’m very sad that my children and I did not get the pleasure to know him. I have way too much Respect for myself and my family to respond to anyone’s low level of heartless and classless comments. #Love #Respect #Always#familyovereverything.”
After starring on season 4 of Mob Wives as one of the “new blood” from Philadelphia, with the other being Natalie Guercio, Alicia DiMichele announced in April of 2014 that she wasn’t returning to the show. A source told the NY Daily News that Alicia quit the show in light of her legal case.
“The word is that she trying to present a better image to the judge. She’s trying to fix her image,” said the source. Months later, in mid-August of 2014, Alicia was given a sentence of four years’ probation for embezzlement.
Perhaps Alicia will make a season 6 return? Just like week, she partied and drank with Angela “Big Ang” Raiola. About two weeks ago, she hung out with Natalie at her clothing boutique.
Natalie would likely welcome having an ally again. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Natalie fought with practically everyone on and after part one of Wednesday night’s reunion show. She even got into it with the host, actress Vivica A. Fox.
Surprisingly, one person who apparently wants Alicia DiMichele to return to Mob Wives is Renee Graziano, who verbally fought with Alicia during her time on the show. Renee implied that Alicia should go back on the show to speak for herself rather than having Natalie Guercio do her dirty work.
