Mob Wives: Natalie Guercio's Black Point
A 2002 movie of the same name
starring David Caruso and Susan Haskell
Gnatalie Guercio was chosen for the lead role in a new film, called "Black Point." The film's Writer, Director, and Executive Producer, Ms Chloe Finch, was thrilled to have Gnatalie on board. At the same time all this was going on, Mob Mistress was communicating with an Associate of Gnatalie's who had some very interesting and disturbing things to say. You can read that at Interview with an Associate of Natalie Guercio. After that blog went up, a couple of our readers, who had heard the associate's alleged recordings of his conversations with Gnatalie, took to the Black Point facebook page and contacted Ms. Chloe Finch on Twitter, to express their concerns.* She assured people that she was looking into it and the "right decision" would be made. In the meantime, Gnatalie's manager issued a statement, defending his client against the recordings, which has since been removed. Here it is:

Her manager, Jason Swanston aka Jae NASDAQ, believes Gnatalie is innocent of any racism and states that she is even black herself, since she is Sicilian. I am Sicilian and just found out that makes me black too @@. This over-the-top statement has many ridiculous comments in what seems to me to be a desperate attempt to do some serious damage control. BUT, what has happened just two days after this statement was posted to the "Black Point" facebook page? Well, the statement was removed, the comments were removed, the page was basically stripped of everything except this new statement:
Ms Chloe Finch has advised that the "unforeseen circumstance" has nothing to do with any of the cast, including Gnatalie Gurercio, but some unknown "new" production team member, who could have easily been replaced without anyone knowing anything. I know you are wondering if Gnat is still in the production. As of this writing the word is Gnatalie still has the lead role.
All posted on Twitter
Guess what else we learned from Twitter? You know that Writer, Director, Executive Producer, Ms. Chloe Finch? Well over this "new" production team member, she has disappeared or deactivated her Twitter account.
Mob Mistress’ black point: People who are bigoted, bias or prejudice have often smiled, hugged, worked with those they secretly look down upon. I find Mr. Jason Swanston’s reasoning for his client not being a racist faulty. I would hope Miss Guercio would be smart enough to not call her talent manager the N-word. Often those who use the N-word in a derogatory manner do so behind the safety of their homes, vehicles and in front of those like minded. History shows us that many prejudice, racist & bias people have even procreated with those they disparaged. Strom Thurmond is an excellent example. The very vocal and anti-intergration Senator fathered a child with his teenage black maid. Miss Guercio may have never called Mr. Swanston the N-word. It does not mean she hasn’t used racial slurs against others. But hey what do I know? I’m just a burnt motherf@#$ing blogger.
Obviously Chloe Finch sees some sort of talent in Natalie Guercio. Mel Gibson is very talented too.
UPDATE: A Black Point twitter page has been tweeting including Chiara in some group tweets. I want to make it clear. Some individuals have been making claims in regards to the Chloe Finch. We have no beef with the director. From what I read she seemed standup and professional in the way she carried herself. Let us all remember Steven Spielberg and Clint Eastwood are great directors. We all started somewhere.
A twitter page appearing to be for the latest Black Point movie in (pre)production seems not so professional. I’ve never seen a movie production account tweet in such a manner. To each their own….(hoping it’s a fake page with no official affiliation)
Natalie Guercio is not the only Mob Wives cast member who allegedly uses the N-word. I will be addressing that situation in the near future.
*Correction: In the interest of accuracy and to the best of my recollection, one of my followers contacted Ms. Chloe Finch on her Twitter page to express her concerns over the interview of Gnatalie's Associate and the youtube audios posted on his account. She and another follower, both black, went to the Black Point Facebook page to express they were offended by Mr. Swanston's statement. ~ Chiara
