Victoria Gotti was born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 27, 1962, to convicted mob boss John Gotti and his wife, Victoria DiGiorgio. Gotti grew up in a modest two-story house in Howard Beach, New York, with four siblings. Victoria Gotti was the quietest of the Gotti children, and her parents suspected she was autistic for several years.
Despite claims to the contrary, Gotti claims her family lived in a sheltered, lower middle-class environment with traditional family values. Her mother made all of the girls’ clothes and cut their hair. Her father was a strict enforcer of curfews and insisted on screening Victoria’s boyfriends when she was a teenager. During her childhood, Gotti’s father was also frequently in and out of jail.
Her mother informed the family that their father was away on business as a plumbing supplier, assisting in the construction of a prison facility. “I was raised to believe…none of what you hear, and only half of what you see,” Victoria has said of her father’s early years.
The young Gotti daughter was a voracious reader and a hard worker in school. She skipped two grades in high school and enrolled at St. Johns University at the age of 15 in 1977. Victoria was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse while still a student at St. Johns, a condition that causes the heart to race, causing dizziness and palpitations. Gotti’s condition required her to keep a close eye on her health, take regular medication, and occasionally wear a heart monitor.
Family Tragedy and Mob Convictions
Death of Frank Gotti
Frank, Victoria’s 12-year-old brother, was killed in March 1980 when he steered his motorcycle into traffic and collided with a car. Victoria was devastated by the accident and referred to her brother as her “little doll.” Her mother reportedly hospitalized the driver of the car, John Favara, shortly after the incident after bludgeoning him with a baseball bat. Favara was abducted four months later and never seen again. Victoria claims she has no information about Favara’s disappearance.
Despite the tragedy, Gotti was determined to complete her college degree and apply to law school, but she dropped out after realizing that her shyness would prevent her from becoming a good lawyer.
Conviction of Father John Gotti
Victoria’s father, John, was convicted of racketeering and five counts of murder in 1992, when she was 30 years old. He was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole. His imprisonment came as a surprise to Victoria. She denied the allegations made by the court and remained devoted to her father. “They don’t make men like him anymore, and they never will,” she has said of the alleged mob boss.
Women and Mitral Valve Prolapse, Gotti’s first book, was published in 1995. The book, which was inspired by her own battle with the illness, documented her heart condition in relatable terms and was critically acclaimed by patients and doctors alike. This non-fiction success paved the way for her fiction writing career, and her mystery novel The Senator’s Daughter was published in 1997 to rave reviews.
Husband and Sons
Gotti married her “first real boyfriend,” Carmine Agnello, whom she met in high school and who worked as a scrap metal dealer, in 1984. Carmine, Frank, and John were the couple’s three sons. Justine, their stillborn daughter, was also born. Gotti and Agnello divorced in 2003.
Husband’s Imprisonment and Divorce
Gotti’s second novel, I’ll Be Watching You, was published in 1999 and received critical acclaim. However, the same year, Victoria’s family was dealt another blow when her brother, John “Junior” Gotti, pled guilty to extortion and bribery. He received a 77-month prison sentence.
Gotti and her family had another emotional year in 2000. Her third book, Superstar, was released, and her husband was arrested for extortion and arson to frighten a Queens business competitor. The “competitors” were undercover New York detectives who had set up surveillance units to track Agnello. Victoria’s husband faced up to 29 years in prison and the loss of his $4 million Long Island mansion, which he had put up as bail for Junior Gotti in 1998.
The videos not only caught the scrap-metal magnate’s illegal behavior, but also Agnello’s numerous infidelities with his bookkeeper. Victoria, enraged by her husband’s public betrayal, continued to support him, posting royalties from her most recent book and half of the couple’s mansion as bail money. A federal judge denied bail on the grounds that Agnello was a “threat to the community.”
Gotti’s father died in a federal prison hospital in 2002 after battling head and neck cancer. The New York Post asked Victoria, the family’s resident author, to write an obituary for her father. The story was published on the same day as her father’s funeral.
Gotti and her husband reached a breaking point in 2003, and Victoria filed for divorce, citing “constructive abandonment.” Gotti received $12,500 per month in alimony and an additional $12,500 per month for her sons as part of a $7 million settlement package. Agnello was released from prison after serving a nine-year sentence in 2007.
Reality TV: ‘Growing Up Gotti’
Growing Up Gotti, a reality show on A&E, starred Gotti and her teenage sons in 2004. The boys quickly became celebrity heartthrobs and were dubbed “the Hottie Gottis.” The show was shot in the family’s seven-bedroom Long Island mansion and aired until 2005.
Victoria made headlines again in August 2005 when she revealed she had breast cancer. The claim was later denied, and her publicist, Matt Rich, whose mother died from the same disease, resigned as a result of the incident. Gotti later stated that the tests had only found precancerous cells and blamed the media for exaggerating her claims.
Gotti is the author of several books, including her most recent memoir This Family of Mine: What It Was Like Growing Up Gotti, and a former New York Post columnist and channel 5 reporter. She has also served as Star magazine’s editor-at-large. Gotti took on a new media role in December 2011. She was appointed as Reality Weekly’s editor-in-chief at large. Gotti writes her own column as part of her new job.
Gotti returned to reality television in February 2012 as a contestant on Donald Trump’s business competition The Celebrity Apprentice. She competed against celebrities such as actor George Takei, singer Clay Aiken, and fellow reality star Teresa Giudice to raise funds for her charity, the Association to Benefit Children.
Victoria Gotti’s House
In 2016, the Feds raided Gotti’s mansion, a multimillion-dollar Long Island property with a four-car garage and tennis courts, as part of an ongoing investigation, as well as her sons’ auto parts shop.
