Feds seek $96K fine for embezzlement from Alicia DiMichele from Mob Wives

The Feds want a piece of sexy “Mob Wives” star Alicia DiMichele's ample assets.

DiMichele's bottom line has grown enough for her to pay a $96,000 fine and $20,000 in restitution when she's sentenced Monday for embezzling union funds from the trucking company she once co-owned with her mob enforcer hubby Edward "Tall Guy" Garofalo Jr., prosecutors said Friday.

The Colombo family hottie is raking in $8,000 per episode for the cable TV reality show and is so flush with success she has opened a second clothing boutique, prosecutors Nicole Argentieri and Allon Lifshitz revealed in papers filed in Brooklyn Federal Court.

DiMichele has become an instant star since she rocked a bikini in pics tweeted from poolside in Las Vegas, unleashed epic rants in the grand tradition of the lowbrow TV show and outshone the co-stars with her stunning beauty.

But the feds are clearly not amused, urging Judge Sandra Townes to make sure that crime doesn't pay. The $96,000 fine would equal the total she'll earn for 12 episodes under her contract.

“The defendant's decision to participate in and profit from a television show that glorifies organized crime and those who participate in it, and demonizes the government for prosecuting these individuals, including (DiMichele), demonstrates that she fails to appreciate the seriousness of the charged crime and her life choices,” the prosecutors wrote.

“To allow her to profit from such an endeavor...would be a manifest injustice. Accordingly she should not retain any of her earnings (from the show).”

DiMichele's husband was sentenced last month to seven years in prison for murder conspiracy and witness tampering.

She can also get up to six months in prison. Defense lawyer John Wallenstein said he would respond to the government's argument in court papers.
