Former Mob Wives star Alicia DiMichele has recently shared her thoughts on the Mob Wives reunion. Alicia only starred on the show for one season because she wanted to focus on her legal issues and her family. Now she is speaking out about the show, the other cast members, and whether or not she would return.
During an interview with VH1, Alicia was asked if Natalie Guercio was her best friend and she responds, “As far as my best friend goes, it has always been and always will be my brother. Natalie is a dear friend of mine and I consider myself lucky to have her in my life. I’ve never asked her or anyone to fight my battles for me. She has her own opinion and is entitled to it and as her friend I support that.”
Alicia shares her thoughts about her name being brought up during the reunion a saying, “In all honesty, I have been so busy working taking care of my family, my business, and myself that I was only able to catch bits and pieces of the season. Everyone knows that I quit the show for my family, so I don’t know why I would be brought up unless it was related to that.”
Alicia then spoke about her history with Karen Gravano saying, “I don’t blame Karen for what her father did. Karen can only be held accountable for her own words and actions [like] how nonchalantly she spoke of my father-in-law’s murder, as if it was not a tragedy for my family. To think that just because I never met my son’s grandfather that I would not be personally affected by that event is ridiculous.”
She then answers whether her and Karen could ever be friends saying, “Karen and I are two totally different people and because we don’t see eye to eye on our family histories and we have different view points on the situation, it feels like there is too much there to overcome to build a friendship.”
On if she would return to Mob Wives the way Carla Facciolo did this past season, Alicia says, “I’ve never had the pleasure of meeting Carla, but I’m sure that her return to the show made sense for her at the time. For me and the path that my life has taken since the show I can’t really see a time where me coming back would make sense. I have new goals and aspirations and in order for me to accomplish those goals, I will have to continue to look forward and not backward.”
