Mobster husband of new Mob Wives star sentenced to 7 years in prison

Alicia DiMichele Garofalo left Brooklyn Federal Court Friday after her husband was sent away.

One day after sexy "Mob Wives" star Alicia DiMichele's made her debut on reality TV, she took time out to attend the sentencing of her schlubby mob hubby on racketeering charges in federal court.

Reputed Colombo enforcer Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo, Jr., looked like someone who has spent the last three years in prison - balding, hair unkempt and pasty complexion.

In contrast, the 6-foot-tall DiMichele looked ravishing in a short black leather jacket, black jeans and knee-high leather boots.

Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo Jr. got seven years in the slammer on Friday at Brooklyn Federal Court.

Garofalo, 46, smiled at his wife and she smiled back.

Federal Judge Sandra Townes sentenced the mobster to seven years in prison for murder conspiracy, extortion and witness tampering.

Next month the judge will sentence DiMichele, 40, for embezzling union funds from a trucking company she and her husband once owned.

DiMichele Garofalo also faces jail at her sentencing for embezzling union funds.

Townes ordered the defendant to receive counseling for gambling and stay away from organized crime figures when he is released from prison.

"Obviously Ms. DiMichele is also a defendant…" Garofalo's lawyer Steve Zissou pointed out.

"'Stay away' does not include his wife," Townes agreed.

DiMichele's late father-in-law, Edward Garafalo was murdered by members of ex-Gambino underboss Salvatore "Sammy Bull" Gravano's crew who were acting on orders of then Gambino boss John Gotti.

Sources told The Daily News that Garofalo strongly objected to DiMichele appearing on the "Mob Wives" show alongside Gravano's daughter Karen.

Karen Gravano is no longer on "Mob Wives" which premiered Thursday night with an image of her late father-in-law's corpse lying in the street. DiMichele has claimed she has no ties of her own to organized crime.

Her husband was also banned by the judge from visiting any casinos so his wife is going solo if she makes another jaunt to Las Vegas to model swimwear. Prosecutors fumed after the raven haired beauty recently tweeted sexy pics of herself around a swimming pool.

DiMichele, accompanied to the courthouse by her brother Anthony, refused to comment.
