Real-life Jersey housewife Alicia DiMichele's neighbors yesterday were stunned to learn the "nice" mom of three is accused by the feds of being a real-life "wisegal" -- allegedly helping hulking hubby Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo Jr. pull off a union pension-embezzlement scam for the Colombos.
"This is totally shocking. You read an article like this and you can't believe it," said neighbor Kirk Volm, referring to The Post's exclusive story that detailed criminal accusations against DiMichele.
"There's nothing about her that would betray anything evil. She's always been the kind of person who'd do anything for you.
"Whenever she and her family would have any kind of celebration, they would invite the whole cul de sac," Volm said.
