And so it begins. We haven't even seen episode one, but here is a clip of the storyline to come. We have written about it before in more detail and Karen has expressed her feelings about it here and here. Is Alicia is in the cast to attack Sammy "The Bull" Gravano and Karen? Sammy did in fact kill 19 people and he confessed to that for a plea deal that allowed the Feds to put John Gotti away...ancient history. Yes, one of those people was Edward Garofalo, her father in law, a mobster himself. The hit was ordered by John Gotti and arranged by Sammy, 23 years ago. Was Alicia even in the picture back then? So what's her beef? Mobsters kill mobsters. It's part of the lifestyle. They sign up knowing the risks and the dangers. So why are we now opening up this can of worms? And why isn't Karen sitting at that table with Drita and Big Ang so she can answer questions about "Why she didn't write how distraught she was in her book?" And maybe Karen could also address Alicia's perception that she is "prancing" around and "bragging" that Sammy is her dad. But Karen can't do that now, can she? Why? Because Karen isn't on the show this season.
Drita says she is "glad Karen is out of town because Karen and Alicia should never cross paths." Really? In my opinion, Karen is an original cast member of Mob Wives, born and raised in New York. She should be on the show, no ifs, ands or buts about it. Especially this season, if Alicia is going to be permitted to take pot shots at Karen and her father, and she is using both of their lives as her storyline.
And thank God for Big Ang! She recognizes that this mob history is between "Sammy and Eddie," and has no place on the show at all. Isn't this the men's business? Isn't the show about Mob Wives and their struggles? I am getting pretty confused.
Karen's book is about her life, not Sammy's life. Sammy wrote all about his crimes in his own book, Underboss. Maybe someone should explain this to Alicia?
So far, this isn't sitting well with me. I hope Karen will address her view or opinion right here or in the media, every step along the way. I want to hear her answers, and I'm sure most fans do too.
