Well, after watching the show and reading a lot of background information on all the families, it would appear to be impossible for Victoria Gotti Jr. to have even remotely been considered for the show. If you have been reading our blog and other articles, you may have come to this conclusion yourself.
If you recall, in the early episodes, Renee was not happy with Karen’s return to Staten Island because her father was a “rat” and Renee’s father taught her that breaking the code of Omerta and snitching, was the biggest violation of the rules of the mob. Renee was told to cut off all contact with Karen because Sammy “The Bull” became an informant for the FBI against John Gotti. This is true even though Gravano was a member of the Gambino crime family and Anthony Graziano was allegedly a member of the Bonanno crime family according to federal authorities. Being a “rat” transcends family affiliations.
Karen has revealed in interviews that John Gotti was often a guest in her home and, in fact, he was present at her Sweet 16 Party, making the event all the more memorable. So the Gravano family and the Gotti family were not only connected by the same mob family, they also seemed to associate on a personal level as well.
Sammy, who was the “Underboss” of John Gotti, was eventually was convinced by the FBI, to testify against Gotti, when they allowed him to listen to tapes of Gotti allegedly talking to authorities and implicating Sammy in various crimes. Sammy’s testimony at Gotti’s trial, lead to Gotti’s conviction and life sentence, and Gotti eventually died in prison. Although Gravano is the one always referred to as a "rat," in his interview with Diane Sawyer, Gravano did make it clear that John Gotti was in fact "snitching" to authorities about him in order to protect himself. This is what ultimately provoked Sammy to testify against him.
Given the history between Karen’s father, Sammy Gravano, and Victoria Jr.s’ father, John Gotti, it is highly improbable that the two women could ever work together on any project. Even if their families celebrated or socialized at one time, the day Sammy turned on Gotti had to be something the Gotti family could never forgive or forget.
What if Victoria joined Mob Wives? What would that episode look like?
Maybe something like this….
Renee’s House (doorbell)
Renee: Hi, Victoria what brings you to Staten Island from Howard Beach?
Victoria: I’m looking for a nice place to live. My neighbors are sick of my kids growing up Gotti there.
Renee: Well I’m surprised you picked this area because you know Karen lives here now.
Victoria: Karen Gravano? Are you f--king kidding me?
Renee: No, why would I kid you about that?
Victoria: Her f--king father ratted on my father!
Carla’s House: Carla on phone with Drita
Carla: Hi Drita, guess what? Renee texted me a minute ago, Victoria Gotti is at her house.
Drita: Yeah? What’s up with that?
Carla: I don’t know, but I’m thinkin’ I should call Karen and tell her to meet me there, and then I won’t show up.
Drita: But Karen ain’t gonna be happy to see Vic there.
Carla: Exactly, there will be a f--king war. That’s payback for Renee invitin’ Karen to her house for dinner and not tellin’ you about it. And pay back for Karen for disrespectin’ you and Lee with her book. I'll bet she puts Lee D'Avanzo's picture in it!
Drita: Yeah, they did do that. She better NOT put Lee's f--king picture in her book! Tell me what Karen says because I NEED TO KNOW, and I ain’t talkin’ to that b*tch after all her talk about a f--king timeline, that ain’t my timeline!
Carla: Ok talk to you soon.
Karen’s Apartment (phone rings)
Karen: Hi, Carla, what’s up?
Carla: Renee invited us over for coffee, I told her I was about to call you, so I would let you know. Can you make it?
Karen: What were you calling about?
Carla: Oh, ummm, Drita was telling me she is sorry she overreacted at the restaurant, she was upset about other things, and I wanted to see how you were feelin’ about it. (Damn I a good liar!)
Karen: I don’t know Carla, is Drita going to Renee’s too?
Carla: No, I just got off the phone with her, she has a thing with Aleeya.
Karen: Ok I’ll meet you there in 30 minutes.
Carla: See you there. (Dials Drita’s number)
Drita’s House (phone rings)
Carla: Just got off the phone with Karen, it’s on and poppin’ in 30 minutes.
Drita: I wish I had a f--kin’ front row seat.
Renee’s House (doorbell rings)
Renee: I have no idea who that could be, one minute Victoria.
Renee opens door…Karen walks in.
Renee (surprised): Hi Karen, I kindda have company right now.
Karen: Yeah I know, Carla right?
Renee: No, not Carla, Victoria Gotti. (Victoria enters room, sees Karen)
Victoria: You B*TCH! Your father snitched on my father!
Karen: You don’t know what the hell you are talkin’ about! YOUR father snitched on my father b*tch!
Victoria: He did not, my father would never RAT on anyone. You’re a crazy b*tch!
Karen: Oh really? Well he ratted on my dad to the Feds, and he threw him under the f--kin’ bus to save his ass.
(Renee confessional: “I’m so glad I got a front seat for this, I hope they don’t break anything.”)
Victoria: My father was the one thrown under the bus by YOUR father the RAT! Just look up your father’s name on Google and all you see is “RAT” “SNITCH” “INFORMANT” B*tch! The whole world knows what your father did!
Karen: You don’t know what the f--k you are talking about. Your timeline is off b*tch. Your father talked to the Feds FIRST and they had him on tape. Then the Feds played the tapes of your father snitching on my father for my dad. That’s when my dad decided he had to save himself from your backstabbing, double crossing, snitching, rat of a father. GET YOUR TIMELINE STRAIGHT!
Victoria lunges for Karen and grabs her hair. Karen screams and grabs Victoria’s hair. Renee removes her precious vase from the coffee table so it doesn’t get broken, then runs for cover in her spandex. Renee tweets “Huge fight in my Living Room, minime-mobettes, Karen and Victoria Gotti, hair everywhere!”
Carla reads the tweet says “No, she di-ent!” and calls Drita.
Drita’s House (phone rings)
Carla: Just saw Renee’s tweet, it’s goin’ down at Renee’s!
Drita: (laughs) Payback for Karen and I didn’t even have to take my shoes off!
Renee tweets again: “AJ walked in, saw the fight, filled a bucket with ice cold water and threw it at Karen and Victoria; FIGHT OVER!”
Stay tuned next week for more drama!
That’s how I would script it, if I had my way, in a perfect Mob Wives world! Let me know what you think? Did I get it right? I need to know!
