Mob Wives: Victoria Gotti Calls Mob Wives “A Train Wreck”
Does a "fired" Victoria Gotti have room to disrespect others?
Victoria Gotti was interviewed by Frank Moreno on AM 970 The Apple. Apparently Frank is not a fan of Mob Wives and found himself someone else, who feels the same way, to interview.
Victoria had plenty to say when Frank wanted to compare her to Karen Gravano. Both Victoria and Karen have written books about mafia life, but Victoria says she wrote hers to help her brother, who was facing criminal charges. She says she was offered a book deal years before that, but refused until she thought a book might help save her brother’s life. She was clearly implying that Karen wrote her book for purely personal gain. Speaking of Karen she says, “I've never met this girl. I don't know her. I don't like what I see, per se, and hear, but at the same time, I think the whole 'Mob Wives' thing is a complete joke.”
Victoria also commented that Mob Wives was “a train wreck” and “it wasn’t real.” But she adds, "God bless them, is what I say. If you ask me, do I see any major talent there in each of them, or any of them? No."
When Frank is asked why he is critical of Karen, but praises Victoria Gotti his answer is, “I guess to me the major difference is Karen is herself a convicted criminal, and she really doesn't have any major talents."

MY TWO CENTS: Out of Respect & Loyalty
Is this is supposed to be an objective opinion? Could it be any more biased? Seriously now, Victoria’s father, John Gotti, was arrested and convicted based on the testimony of Sammy Gravano. Could there be any more love lost or any more animosity between their two daughters? The way it came down was that the FBI played tapes of John Gotti throwing Sammy under the bus, and they wanted his cooperation. Even with the evidence that Gotti was setting him up to take the fall, Sammy Gravano thought long and hard before making a deal with the Feds and breaking the code of silence. The truth of the matter is, it was either going to be John Gotti or Sammy Gravano going away for life. Sammy decided to take the deal. I’m sure Victoria and her family don’t see it that way. Nevertheless, to expect her to have any kind words for Karen is ridiculous. She is probably the last person I would ask about Karen!
I also noticed that both Frank Moreno and Victoria Gotti say that Karen and the other Mob Wives have no “major talent.” That’s their opinion. It’s nice that they share the same opinion, but there are many that would disagree, me included. The Mob Wives are just getting started. They only hit the airways less than a year ago. And besides that, I hated her show, “Growing Up Gotti” with her three spoiled brat sons. Give me AJ, Karina, Aleeya, Giselle, Carmen or Joseph any day of the week! Sorry, I haven’t met Ramona’s children, but from what I saw of them I would take them too!
Victoria has major skills when it comes to taking personal phone calls on Celebrity Apprentice, episode 1!

Just another point about "major talent" because I am irked right now. Does Victoria have any major talent? Because, if she does I surely missed it. I watched the first three episodes of Celebrity Apprentice and Victoria almost got fired the first week for not bringing in money, for taking personal phones calls, and for showing up late etc. Then she DID get fired in week two for whining, not taking on her assigned role, making mistakes etc. I expected her, as a mob daughter and business woman, to kick ass! But instead she was a total disappointment and her team lost both weeks. As soon as she left the women's team had a very united feel and they actually won their task. Maybe when it comes to talent, she should try emulating our VH1 Mob Wives instead of disparaging them? They have a hit series and are adding Chicago and who knows what else. They are in big demand. The public has voted and they are the BOMB!
PS Get Karen's book, Mob Daughter and read it, maybe if Victoria had she would know who Karen is!
