Funeral home manager to be 2nd South Philly-linked member of ‘Mob Wives’

The fourth season of the VH1 hit “Mob Wives” will include another South Philly cast member, says the New York Daily News.

Natalie Guercio runs her family’s Carto Funeral Home on Broad Street near Jackson. She joins Alicia DiMichele-Garofalo, the owner of Addiction Boutique, which opened in June next to the dollar store at 12th and Passyunk.

The NYDN calls the Carto Funeral Home “the go-to spot for mob-related burials in South Philly.” Are there really that many?

That’s all the paper says about Guercio, but VH1’s bio has this:

While this sexy Sicilian siren gives off a cool first impression, under the surface she is pure fire — prepared to burn anyone who gets in her way.

How scandalous. Here’s how the paper describes DiMichele Garafolo:

Garofalo is a hard-bodied brunette who will tell her tale of being the wife of alleged Colombo gangster Edward (The Tall Guy) Garofalo, whose father’s murder was allegedly orchestrated by Sammy (The Bull) Gravano on orders from John Gotti.

DiMichele Garofalo has a son,Anthony, 18, from a previous marriage to a wealthy businessman. After marrying Edward Garofalo, she had two kids, Rocco, 11, and Carlo, 8. She ran a trucking company with her hubby, and was arrested and charged with fraud and embezzlement related to the company — and pled guilty. While filming this season, Garofalo is awaiting sentencing and faces six months in prison.

Her sentencing had been scheduled for last month, but it was continued after the feds learned that her income would skyrocket because of her take from the show.

The show premieres Dec. 5.
