Bronx based reality show star wears wire and becomes mob informant


He was a “Mama’s Boy” with a starring role in a reality-TV show this time last year.
But these days, Anthony Zoccolillo is starring in a real-life Mafia drug case.
And he’s playing the role of informant.
Zoccolillo, 36, was identified yesterday in organized-crime online newsletter Gang Land as the man who wore a wire that secretly recorded the inner circle of a $2-million marijuana-distribution scheme.
The ring was allegedly run by Salvatore "Sally KO" Larca, a major player in the Bronx-based crew of powerful Genovese capo Ernest Muscarella.
Zoccolillo was one of five 30-something men from The Bronx featured in a TLC reality show called “Mama’s Boys.” All the men still lived with their mothers.
MY BOY: Shortly after Anthony Zoccolillo and mother Patti starred in “Mama’s Boy,” he went to work as a mob informant in The Bronx.

But when he was arrested last fall — after the show went off the air — on drug and weapons charges, he agreed to give up Larca in exchange for leniency, according to reports.
On the show, Zoccolillo identified himself as an aspiring cartoonist.
He wore a hidden recording device and caught Larca allegedly talking about plans to bring in two 500-pound shipments of pot from Northern California.
The high-quality pot ring was busted two weeks ago but the ex-reality star’s role was not made public until court papers were filed this week.
Zoccolillo follows another reality show player, Hector "Junior" Pagan, ex-husband of “Mob Wives” star Renee Graziano.
Pagan wore a wire to catch his father-in-law, a reputed Bonnano captain, in some incriminating conversations — at the same time Pagan was appearing on the VH1 reality show.

  7. i knew that kid from the neighborhood. there's no honor among thieves anymore, & no one wants to pay the price for crimes they commit. i always had a gut feeling that kid was a snake and a punk. this just solidifies it. even t.v now a days glorify garbage and low lives like this douche and those mobwives. if you even really think about it, not one of those women were even married to an actual made guy. a daughter, an niece, a granddaughter... but not a mob "wife"??? com' on now.....

  9. My old friend Spiro the Greek Once told me Too many Mob guys Communicating with thier old mob friends That are in federal witness protection. True or false? I think it's true just listen to coast to Coast AM 1:05 a.m. every night. Sometimes the host of the show will have a rat from the federal witness protection On the air, That rat Will also say, He does Communicate Still with His old mob friends. I'm sure is many guys out there listen to coast to coast.

    2. I don't know if you people realize the feds advertise on here too, To instigate trouble and wait for someone to reply so they can get their messages but they're just getting together Your pieces in the little chest game that they play. So don't be too quickly to reply to something stupid, Especially the people that leave messages in all capital letters; The feds use all capital letters.

  15. True that.I thought Timothy Pratt was the Under boss! That's what he's been telling everyone in a halfway house. Some guys in Otisville also heard him saying the same thing. He hung out with This big German stool pigeon in Canaan. He also like The little homos in prison. Thanks to Mommy For banging that Gambino gangster up in New York State. He use to clean up the leftover drippings. Yummy yummy in timmy tummy..lol!!!

  16. I am hoping that someone can protect me from Donald Trump. I am from the Bronx but Donald Trump got to me through mind control. He tries to see if he can make me kill myself of hurt any one. He is no man but I need to be protected from him. If someone would talk to him to have him stop I would be very thankful.
