Victoria Gotti

Tries to Clear Family Name

Mob relations aside, don't mess with Victoria Gotti. The curvy blonde raises three teenage boys by herself (ex-husband Carmine Agnello is in jail for racketeering and tax evasion) and cooks and cares for their huge Long Island home. She is the author of five books, a columnist at the celebrity publication "Star" and is starting her own magazine, "Red Carpet," where celebrities will write articles about their lives.

She's confrontational, quick-witted and isn't afraid to speak her mind no matter who she's talking to. Then again, she IS the daughter of deceased mob boss John Gotti.

"Look, I loved my father and I love my family," she told The Associated Press. "But this is my life. I don't represent anyone else, it's about me and my children, and I want to make sure they do good in their lives."

Gotti and her sons are the subject of the new reality show "Growing up Gotti," which premieres on A&E at 9:30 p.m. EST Monday. She said she did the show to clear up talk that she's "The Godmother" or that her family is the real-life Sopranos.

I saw the promo for this show last night and had to laugh. I'm not a reality television fan and just can't imagine this being a show - - but then I didn't think Paris Hilton walking around the Ozarks in Blahniks would be a show either and I was wrong in that case as she is on season two.

What's next?

A reality show featuring dental surgery?

You Said

I don't watch tv hardly at all.

But I might tune in for a dental surgery show.

Says: Michael at July 31, 2004 03:15 PM

Didn't she make the comment that her family wasn't like the Brady Bunch? I think I could've figured that one out on my own.

Says: Stephanie at July 31, 2004 11:44 PM

dental surgery - just no root canals, please.

Says: GrumpyBunny at August 1, 2004 04:10 PM

Already done- check out Extreme Makeover. Blech.

Says: Esmirna at August 27, 2004 08:28 PM

I still can not believe this is still on the air
she claims to want better for them then she better get those kids A quick overhaul They are the most disrespectful ignorant jerks i have ever seen HAD her dad been around MAYBE they would have at least had some family respect and respect for themselves and their Mom.
and that bunch of baloney about wanting to prove she is not a Go mother who in their right mind could ever believe that one LOL
What a Crock
just another rich money hungry spoiled little rich girl seeking attention and what better way to get it then pop up on TV Yelling that all famous Gotti name Her Father is no doubt turning in his grave over this one

Says: April at September 27, 2004 09:29 PM

oh my god.... i love growing up gotti. and i think victoria gotti is beauiful. and her son's are are good looking victoria you go girl because you got it.

Says: kira at September 28, 2004 03:21 AM

I think Growing up Gotti is an interesting reality show, that really portrays the life that the Gotti's do probably live. It also shows an Italian-American single parent family, dealing with everyday familial obligations and issues. Yes and for those ready to criticize, I do realize that they do so in a wealthy and privledged manner. Regardless of this I don't view the Gotti boys as any different from alot of society's teenagers today and to add to their situation they have their name to live with, the loss of their Grandfather and the imprisonment of their father, please don't get me wrong I believe if you do the crime do the time. Regardless of the Gotti family history, I believe that Victoria has been brave in doing this show, by virtue of exposing her faults and accomplishments. Lets face it we all have faults. Bravo!

Says: Rachel at September 29, 2004 07:01 PM

the gotties are so cool..n i wouldnt blame victoria..i mean she had raised three sons n on top of tht her unworhty idiot of an husband cheats on her..i mean marriage isnt only about getting together..its about thwo souls in one body..its about love..passion..LOYALTY..its about amaking a family whom u cant live iwhtout i man c'mon..john on the other hand..i dun really know him..but looking at his makes me see that he does everything i do..i like hima lot..hes different..he makes my life complete..i wsh i could meet him really bad..n ask him so many questions..

Says: baby chikzta at January 3, 2005 08:31 PM

The Show "Growing Up Gotti" is one of the most intresting families around. I mean the Gotti family is the family of the 21 century. Many mothers are single, and manage to raise respectful kids, even if they slack off. I think a single woman accomplishes more than a married woman. My mom showed us that playing mom and dad isn't the most easiest role for a parent. I think even if Victoria wasn't a Gotti, she would be just as famous. It's funny to see many jealous views who put down the "Mrs. G" that just shows she did her job ;)

Says: Randy at January 4, 2005 02:06 PM

Oh My God i love tha show 'growing up gotti' i think that victoria is mad pretty and that her sons carmine, john, and frankie are so hott

Victoria is also a very kind and polite woman. I only met her briefly, but she was very courteous.

Says: eliza at February 23, 2005 09:08 PM

I find Victoria delightful and a strong woman. My heart goes out to her alot. I would love to corespond with her through e-mail . If possible, please send.

I AM OF ITALIAN DECENT, BOTH PARENTS WERE BORN IN THE U.S. I WATCH the Growing of Gotti series weekly I especially enjoyed the show when VICTORIA made HER "GRAVY". I HAVE BEEN MADE Fun OF FOR CALLING MY SAUCE " Gravy", those non Italians call it sauce. They think they know all about italian food. I think you should jar your sauce after all Robert gave it a thumbs up.

Says: MARIE at March 15, 2005 10:23 AM

Victoria,I love your show ,your boys are great I love them as much as you do.Their real. I wish your show was on every day.You go girl.

Says: Jessie at March 22, 2005 08:31 AM

seriously, Growing up Gotti is a ritual in my house. every week it is the ony time my family gets to gether for a television show. i respect victoria more than most because as she is raising three teenage sons my mother is raising three teenage daughters at 16 17 & 18 years old. i think that what she is doing is wonderful. her family doesnt exactly have the best reputation and she is proving that you dont have to continue the negitivity to be famous. quite frankly i dont think that John Gotti is turning in his grave. i am sure that he is proud to se that the family name can be carried on and still so well known in a positive way. i love victoria gotti for all that she has accomplished. as for all the horrible remarks about her sons. THEY ARE TEENS!! im sorry but if you ask me they are just as amazing as their mother. yeah they may have mouths on them at times but what teenager doesnt. they are comstantly in the spotlight and that has to be hard on them because it is hard on most adults who have lived with it all their lives too. i think you people need to give them a break. they are all doing the best that they can.

Says: ashley at March 22, 2005 06:42 PM

The Gotti Show is a real life action show and I love it because it is run by respect as to no cussing or vulgar actions.The boys do act off,but ''most''teenagers do and more so,''boys''.The show is funny and it shows more or less how a family with teenagers acts behind closed doors.The show that I found obnoxious and dirty was the Osbornes.They had nothing cute and showed disrespect in public.Thats my opinion.

Says: Lillie at March 30, 2005 06:09 PM

Gotti sons are hot i want to bang them!!!

Says: Missy Gudgeon at April 6, 2005 12:50 PM

Does anyone out there know the address of where you can send fan mail to Victoria Gotti, or where you can get that information from?

Says: JB at April 6, 2005 02:51 PM

It would mean the world to him! my grandfathers # is 1508-675-9941. If you want to come email me his granddaughter ashley and i will tell you more infomation. Right now he is saying "if she comes i would like to take a picture with her. He is so funny! thanks, and hope to see you there or you can just call if u can't make it at his house.

Says: Ashley Ternullo at April 10, 2005 08:57 AM

Well it only took me an hour to find this site and the sad thing is that i dont even know if im in the right one. i watched your show last night and saw the look on your face when u met Ester(nice panties.) i am younger than u but u seem to remind me a lot of me. i couldn't agree with more on the facts of lfe. (the truth hurts) im 25 and a single mother as well. when u were interveiwing all those people to be your personal assistant i could only wish that i lived in the "big apple." your motivation in life only helps me to realize that anything is posible and dreams realy can come true. as long s u put your mind to it nothing can stop u. as like you i have been through quit a bit (again im only 25)my life should be a soap or a book, i too feel like "the godmother." everyone seems to come to me for advise, money or a place to stay, but when it comes to Stacy having any problems there is no such thing. ya right!! at times like this i wish my mother was still around. i realy dont know how u do it with three boys "quack quack," Jeff, and u cant forget "the count." i think Tula is great and Jen looks a little stressed at times. i guess she just has to adjust to "THE GOTTI" lifestyle. when i finally figured out how to get to this site, i was reading some of the shit people write. well u should know. i dont want u to take this any way, but it does feel good once in a while to hear that your a great lady and dont ever let any one tell u any different. as one mother to another, i think that your doing a great job with your boys!! if your father could only see you now im sure he would be very impressed and proud to say that "Victoria Gotti is my daughter." keep your head up and a smile on your face, trust me i'm trying to do the same thing. it was nice chatting to u and i only wish the best for you and your family. in the words of crazy Ester "God works in mysterious ways." SURE!! have a good night and i'll see you on the tube.
Yours truly, Stacy Dembiski. Toronto,Ont

I love watching Growing up Gottie,I admire Victoria for the strong women she is and for having 3 gorgeous sons and raising them very well. I especially love her 17 year old son John. When I first watched Growing Up Gottie I thought her boys where all in there 20's but when I found out that they were still teanagers I was really happy to hear that I get to see hot guys that are my age!!

Says: KaReN r. at April 14, 2005 09:34 AM

I love Growing Up Gotti! The show is exciting and fun to watch. I never miss an episode! I think the boys are gorgeous and typical teenagers. They are very respectful when it comes down to it. I hate how some people portray them and their family when they dont even know them other than watching the show. How can you come to a conclusion of someone's personality when you only know them from watching a show thats designed for entertainment and edited for that purpose? Victoria is an amazing mom who has a tight relationship with her kids. How many kids do you know now a days that are that close to their mom? She must be doing something right! John is my favorite. Not only is he amazingly gorgeous but he has a fun, energetic personality on the show to boot!

Says: Stacey at April 14, 2005 10:35 AM

I love Growing up Gotti, its alot of fun and they crack me up. I live in Texas and my mother-in-law and father-in-law run a porelain doll business and I've been teaching doll classes for almost 11 years. We're real small, and I would love to give Victoria Gotti a beautiful porcelain doll that we made. I seen that episode with that lady who wanted to make a doll in her image, what an insult. I just want to give her one. Victoria seems like a very down to earth person and she has a great sense of humor, she reminds me of a dear friend of mine. She really keep those boys of hers in line and they listen to her which is great because raising kids is not the eaisiest thing to do. I have 3 girls and im not single and its still hard.More power to her, you go girl! If anyone knows any way to get in touch with her, i would love to send her a beautiful porcelain doll. She would love it we don't make ugly, cheap dolls. I wish her the best she has a nice looking family and God bless her and her kids. Says: Rebecca at April 14, 2005 2:00 pm

I love Growing Up Gotti. Everyone cracks me up. Victoria seems like a down to earth person with a great sense of humor, which i love in a person, her kids are funny too! I live in Texas and I love their Newyork accent!! My mother-in-law and father-in-law and myself run a porcelain doll business from our home. We give classes and I teach the doll classes. I would love to send Victoria a hand crafted doll that we made. She would love it. We don't make ugly,cheap dolls. Our students dont leave with a bad doll. I watched the episode when that lady wanted to make a doll in her likeness,what an insult. I know quite a bit about dolls and that was horrible.I dont necessarly want to make one in her likeness, i just want to give her one. Ladydoll, little girl or baby doll. I think she would not be dissapointed. Victoria seems to keep her kids in line and that they listen and respect her which is great because i have 3 girls ranging from ages 4-17 and being married its still hard raising kids. More power to her. You go girl!!! If anyone has any inkling in how to get in touch with her which im sure is impossibe, but if some way through the grapevine that i can let her know that I have a beautiful porcelain doll waiting for her and please believe me, it wont be like the one that lady tried to give her! Contact me on my in-laws e-mail. I wish Victoria the best of luck and may God bless her and her family. Says: Rebecca at April 14,2005 2;30 pm

I forgot to leave my in-laws e-mail. anyone,anywhere has any inkling through the grapevine as how to get in touch with her so i can send Victoria a porcelain doll that would be a dream come true. I could send her a lady doll or little girl or baby doll what ever she would like to have. My mothe-in-law makes all the dresses and she is awesome. Right now , she is making some dresses for a doll studio in upstate NewYork. IM sure getting in contact with her is almost impossible but if anyone knows or if anyone knows her ,let her know and contact the e-mail. at That would be so totally awesome. Victoria deserves the best and i would love to give her a special gift. I would even send her mom one if she wanted it. Thanks Says: Rebecca Richey at April 14, 2005 2:45 pm

"Growing Up Gotti" is a Monday night must for me. God help them if one of my sons decides to drop by while I am watching . . . it is, "Don't bother me, I watching 'Growing Up Gotti!'" At which time they know better to make even a slight sound. Being Sicilian and growing up in a strict household . . . no talking back, doing what you were told, never displaying any sign of disrespect, and heaven help us if we did not follow the the rules. Imagine my surprise when I was the first of my family to get a divorce (My family's view was that it was extremely shameful.) and raising two boys by myself since they were babies. (They're 25 & 28 now.) I love watching the Gottis because they remind me of my own family, minus the money. Guess what . . . in this day & age teenage boys fight & curse like sailors. The Gotti brothers act just like my sons did at that age & even though I was a single parent . . . I kept them in line. However, with a little yelling at times, OK may be it was a lot of yelling. Victoria reminds me of myself, I worked full time as a RN at night & still had to be the "Mother of the Year." It is a battle. Some of the above comments make me think that obviouly these people have no idea of the reality of the situation. If you watch the Gotti boys closely, you will notice that often, especially in public, the boys are very polite & well behaved. The Mother's Day show was great & proved how thoughtful & how much they love their mother. I also enjoy that at times they refer to their mother as "mommie." So for you negative folks . . . get a grip & take into consideration the Gottis are not exactly like you given their circumstances, but they may be just like you if they were in your shoes. Oh, & if you don't like the show . . . don't watch it.

Says: Elena at April 19, 2005 02:06 AM

Dude you guys are nutz, you think Victoria is actually gonna sit here and call you guys? The only reason she did that thing for esther is because she was an elderly woman in trouble. Well that's what I think. Also all those people who diss her family, how do you know what is like to be in her shoes. For real you guys are jealous that she is rich and your not! Suck it up and get on with yor OWN lives

just want to say never knew who the gotties were untill i watched their show. I love the gotties usually people write sad letters so the famous person they are writting to feel bad and try to meet with them or send them a letter. Well im not going to do that i live in East Chicago Indiana. My friends and I always talk about the gotti show and always say were married to them and always disscuss which gotti belongs to us. We have this fantasy that one day well be able to meet the gottis and meet them. But I know it won;t come true cause famous people like that are to busty to bother with little fan writters like me.

I just finished watching an episode where you said: "My first priority is my family & my home"...I loved it. I'm a single mother also, and watching your show allows me to learn different approaches to raising my children & also to remember to appreciate & cherish the time I have with them now. I love your show, I love the "reality" of it & I wish you all the best in your future endeavors. It would be great if I could get your contact information.

Victoria Gotti has no life. She is the wife of a murderer, gangster, and thief. She is incredibly fake and materialistic with her ridiculous fake mansion and gaudy jewelry. Her sons are gangsters and stupid! Yes they are not honors students, they are flunkies! The only reason they "get" A's is because their fake mother pays their teachers. The show is stupid and a waste of time. If you have the time to watch this show or moreover if you like and continue to watch the show you are a nolife piece of wannabee imitation crap. Nobody could care less about what "Mrs. McVeigh" and her sons do. Also Victoria was charged with attempted manslaughter when she brutally beat a man almost to death with a baseball bat. Their is no reason for their stupidity. They need to stop buying junk and start buying morals! ALL OF HER STAR STRUCK FANS NEED TO USE THEIR TIME MORE VALUABLE

Just let me know, I'll gladly relocate.....

All I have to say is.. Victoria in my eyes is an amazing woman who deserves to be respected in every way. She reminds me a lot of my mom because my mother is also a single woman..except one who raises 3 teenage daughters... Her daughters (one of them being me!).. are all infatuated with her three sons.. Carmine, John and Frankie.. and we would do anything just to meet them once. I know Victoria is probably NEVER going to see this.. but whoever is reading this now.. Im just writing this to let you matter how much insults one can make about Victoria..little do they see the problems she faced as a child.. and how she literally did..have to work her way up to where she is now. My father also admired John Gotti.. and knows so much knowledge about his legacy. My whole family admires what an amazing trip the Gotti name went through. Although some people see "Growing Up Gotti" as a T.V. show where 3 GORGEOUS teens are spoiled...NO..that's not even the half of it.. when I watch that show.. it brings a quantity of entertainment and fun into my life. I can see.. that Victoria never ever spoils her sons. I too greatly love writing..and as I see her write in the
Star column and write all those fantastic books.. it inspires me and tells me that I too..may one day have a chance to publish a book. As I see my favorite Gotti boy-- Frankie.. follow in his mother's footsteps..the enthusiasm in me just begins to rise..pushing me to achieve anything I'd like to. Meeting the Gottis would be more than a dream for me. I'm not one of those "over-obsessed" teens.. who would do degrading things just to please the boys... but if I met them.. I would truly be touched and inspired.. because I don't want to meet them to "hook up with Frankie" .. "tell everyone I met John".. or to "give Carmine a hug".. but only to meet my absolute favorite celebrities.. but hey.. why not throw in a hug? =P.. No but I look up to Victoria so much because she is so..amazing! Most of you may think.. now come on.. you're just having a fad!.. But no.. although I'm just going into the 8th grade..does not mean that I'm an immature teen who just wants some from the Gotti
boys. I respect Victoria and admire her. Those boys are just gorgeous..yet I respect them and how they maintain their education
at a high level/grades when they're famous and can get just about any girl in their dreams. Once again..meeting the Gottis would be an absolute dream for me..and even if it's not soon.. I won't stop dreaming..because I know one'll come true.

Love the show. I still watch everytime A&E airs it. If you ever need an assistant, call me!

you people need to get a fucking life. who the hell cares about a daughter of a serial killer and her grandchildren. what's next "growing up dahmers" or "growing up bundy's" or "growing up BTK's"

this family makes the Osbournes look like the Brady's.

Says: God at August 1, 2005 07:44 AM

Victorias I love the show Ive seen almost every episode and I think Jon and the other guys are very cool. While browsing the web one day I happened to run accross a video taping of your january visit to your father. I have been a fan of his since I can remember and I was shocked when I heard him refer to blacks as niggers. As I said before I enjoy the show, I think youre beautiful, and the guys are very cool and I just wanted to let you know how I felt about your father.

Says: julian jackson at August 13, 2005 12:35 AM

I personaly have seen the show and it is cool i mean fine guys and it shows u real life lessons.

Says: Beakie Colon Rivera at August 21, 2005 08:51 PM

Im not going to ride the I LOVE THE GOTTIS bandwagon! But......I love to watch the show, its comedic and the sons are soooo spoiled and funny!! Typical long island teenagers..But Victoria lets them get away with a lot!! She is a great mom, but they need to learn the value of a $. I see them all over the place, Kitchen Kaberet, the gym, Roosevelt Field, the beach and more..They are so cute@! I would LOVE to meet Victoria however, she is inspirational and so cool. I hope she is well, and she has a heart of gold. I hope the Dr has good news as far as your heart goes. Keep the show going..its hilarious!! and Did carmine goto college, i thought he wanted to goto Florida and what school si John going to..Boston U or Northeastern..I know he is not going to harvard ahahaah

ohh and Frankie is ADORABLE!! i See him all the time as well.....what car is he going to get a 5 series as well? What in silver? since black and white are already apart of the household...

Well im rambling...I would LOVe to be your personal shopper!!

thanks!!! You make tv fun to watch on Monday night!!

Says: micheal anthony at August 22, 2005 11:41 PM

hey. i really wish you well with your heart. i hope you get better soon.i am a huge fan of growing up gotti. i want to write you so bad but i cant find an address or fan mail address anywhere. Please e-mail me it if you can i would be so happy. My email address is

Says: christina at August 23, 2005 08:27 PM

For all those people looking for the Gotti address, you should try searching under her married (legal) last name.

Says: JT at August 24, 2005 08:50 PM

im itaian american and my grandparents are from the old mom is irish,english french, dad is cisilian,italian.i was raised with old fashioned morals,manners,values and traditions.i have good old fashioned social graces. i think that more italian girls should be raised with these old fashioned ways.i think that the girls should wait until the guy asks her out instead of asking him out and chasing mom always said that guys dont like to be chased.the only way i think that a woman should ask a man out is if they live in 2 different states.for example if she sees him on t.v. or they meet online and he doesnt know her and she doesnt know him and she wants to meet him or get to know him one day.then she should take a chance and try to meet him or get to know him.this being said i would like to meet luigi he is single from what i have seen on the show.i saw the new previews for the new shows that he goes to italy with victoria and the boys and wears his speedo and victoria sais that he is supposed to find a woman not chase them away!!.write me if you would like my email address is julia gratsi ciao julia

Says: julia at August 24, 2005 11:34 PM

Like your show. You certainly have your hands full with the boys, but little by little they are growing into fine young men. You are doing a great job. Hang in there with all those medical problems and be well...

Says: Susan at August 25, 2005 10:10 AM

Hi Victoria

Just want to say I admire you. You live your own life and do the best you can for yourself and your sons. If I were a Gotti, I would do the same. You carry your name with pride, and the legacy you give your sons will enable them to do the same. I'm from Brooklyn, born and raised. I feel no one should judge a person by their name. Probably, people outside of the northeast, or even those who come from or live in the north east have a tendancy to judge. I get alot of that, living in Texas. I'm proud of my name, heritage, birthplace. I'll always be a Brooklyn girl..God bless you and your sons and family. I love the show. Keep up the good work. Congratulations on your son's graduation..Onward to college!!How proud you must be..If you ever want to drop me a line, my e-mail is:

Says: Yvonne Angel3 at August 31, 2005 11:38 PM

Hi again Victoria..Forgot to mention, I was born in Long Island College Hospital B'klyn, NY June 1949, and, I grew up in the Red Hook projects. So, since we're both Brooklyn girls, I feel a sort of kinship..Loving mother with a good heart..The best people come from B'klyn!!

You have got to be fool,to think that this gotti family has or needs to be shown respect,the kids are rude,to all people and to the mother ,the mother thinks she is in some other world to think that her family is some kind of royalty,the father john gotti was a bumb,he singal handedly brought down the what the feds say was a crime family,what a bumb,and to hear this guy peter speak and tell the kids to remember were they come from,is such a joke,he is a bumb as well,the other brother is in court saying ,i i i am not part of any crime family,is what he is saying in court,and then you hear this vicky talk about how she is seen as the godmother,the whole famil is a joke,the kids should be proud of the name that their father gave them than to try and get more out of life saying we are gotti's like it is some kind of badge of honor,they all bring and put a black eye on true Italian american people families,these kids will be in trouble and in jail within 10 years,they do not have money like they seem to show they do,it is all an act,i love to see this guy peter think that he and put off like he gets this respect for people ,he is such a joke,and please e-mail me if you would like to get together and talk more about this peter,i would like to show you some respect,i mean spect,ha ha ha,please peter get back with me,and they need to tell this vicky to keep as much cloths on as she can,she does not look good at all,and boy does she think she has got it,those kids have no respect for their mother at all ,not that they should,and it is so funny to hear her talk about how good those brats are,funny stuff,so god mother if you or the godfather peter or johny boy would like to find out how a Italian family shows respect for oneanother please e-mail me asap,because you make all of us look bad, please gotti family e-mail me and i will give you lessons on respect,and show your kids how to show respect for free,i will tell you this much now,you have to earn respect,and in my eyes your whole family needs to show respect for true Italian families ,respect your self vicky,and do not go on tv letting your kids talk to you the way they do,but it is clear to me and many other that they do not respect you at all,so you need to talk to the people that edit the show and to cut that stuff out,but it is clear they think your whole family is a joke and have no respect for you at all,you can see that by just looking at the things they put on the show,you will always be a joke in the Italian world,none of us respect you at all,you never talk about the family buisness to anyone like you and your dad did,no CLASS
