I Married A Mobster: Denyce Franzese's Story

Denyce Franzese was left virtually penniless after her husband, John Franzese Jr., 50, disappeared in 2006. She lost everything and had to resort to sleeping in her car. Her husband, John, turned FBI informant on his on father, John “Sonny” Franzese, 93, an alleged Colombo underboss and then went into the witness protection program alone. He claimed he did not take Denyce with him because of her drug addiction. Denyce claims John lied about her addiction, as she had been clean and sober since 1987. In fact, she says she has never been addicted to drugs, alcohol was the only substance she abused.

Denyce was once a party girl in Hollywood and became an alcoholic.  She enters a rehab and gets herself clean and sober and back on track.  Part of that involves getting a job as a counselor at Odessa.  John needed was addicted to drugs and flew out to the California Rehab from his home in Long Island, New York.  Fate takes a turn on Denyce when she meets John, at the Odessa rehab facility, in 2001 and marries him in 2004.

Denyce had some harsh and bitter words for John Jr. for ratting out his 93 year old father, Sonny.  "When I heard he was testifying against his father, it made me sick," she said. "I absolutely feel terrible for Sonny." She repeatedly refers to her husband as a liar and goes so far as to add, "John was never a gangster, he's a wanna-be. John is lazy, he doesn't want to work."

Denyce said that he left her one day in September, 2006 and just never returned.  He walked out on Denyce and her 12 year old son, and left them to fend for themselves, without giving them a second thought.

Denyce's story airs on ID this Wednesday night at 10:30 PM ET.  Be sure to watch and catch our recap Thursday!
