Now I understand why the powers-that-be for VH1′s reality show, Mob Wives decided to bring Alicia DiMichele and her jailed husband, Edward “Tall Guy” Garofolo Jr. onto the reality show. I mean first of all, he is locked up and any show that’s about mob involvement should feature jailhouse phone calls or visits, right? Secondly, it seems that while Alicia plays the role of loving, devoted mob wife while on camera, she is actually a cheating bimbette.
According to Page Six Alicia has been carrying on an affair with a Philadelphia restauranteur who is, of course, a convicted felon! You didn’t think her side guy would be squeaky clean now did you? Here’s the thing, this isn’t exactly a new hook up. Alicia and this guy have been hot and heavy since her husband “went away” as they say in Jersey. For 3 years now this guy has been her late night booty call and they have a circle of friends that is well aware of their scandalous relationship. Supposedly he’s still married but even his wife doesn’t care about his cheating.

From Page Six: “Alicia has been having an affair with a Philadelphia restaurateur who’s a convicted felon, and it has become common knowledge among their circle of friends. [The restaurant owner’s] wife even seems to tolerate them as a couple. [Neighbors] see his car parked outside Alicia’s house almost nightly, and he’s been seen sneaking out in the early morning hours on many occasions.”
What is going to make this really interesting is that Garafolo just recently found out about Alicia’s other man and I’ve got to wonder if the most confrontational phone calls between the two will conveniently be the ones that occur while VH1′s cameras are rolling. As for Alicia, well it’s not like she was sleeping well at night before anyway. She recently plead guilty to embezzlement charges thanks to those fake Gucci items that she had been knowingly peddling at both of her children’s boutiques.
Surely Tall Guy has friends on the outside that can take care of this little wrinkle that his wife has created in their marriage, right? Should Alicia and her guy be a little bit worried for their lives? Tell us your thoughts in the comments below!
