Jailed Colombo associate conspires to oust Karen Gravano from new season of Mob Wives

Jailed Garofalo wants star ousted from ‘Mob Wives’
One of the new stars of “Mob Wives” won’t be seen on camera next season.
Viewers of the VH1 reality show will only get to hear the voice of Edward “Tall Guy” Garofalo from federal prison as he talks on the phone to his wife, Alicia DiMichele, a sexy mother of three.
Gangland News blogger Jerry Capeci reports that Garofalo negotiated the couple’s roles with the show’s creator/executive producer Jennifer Graziano, the daughter of Bonanno crime family mobster Anthony “TG” Graziano.
Tall Guy — whose father was whacked in 1990 by a hit squad led by Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano — pleaded guilty last year to murder conspiracy. Now he’s conspired to get Sammy’s daughter Karen Gravano ousted from the show on which she appeared for three seasons.
Garofalo, a member of the Colombo mob, can be very persuasive. Capeci quotes a law enforcement official as saying, “One time, after [Garofalo] used a broom handle to beat up one of his [trucking company] workers, he warned him that the next time he’d use a pipe.”
“Mob Wives” is slated to make its return in January.
