Since Alicia DiMichele has quit Mob Wives before Season 5, who could be replacing the Staten Island beauty?
There is no word yet on her VH1 replacement, but when asked in April about DiMichele's departure, some of her cast mates seemed to be that shocked about her leaving the hit show. "Honestly, I was a little surprised she joined the cast because of her whole court case," Renee Graziano told Radar Online. "The show didn't bring her any good, so I can see why she's pulling out now."
"She is a mom and has to do what she needs to do for her three beautiful children, who don't deserve to be pulled through the mud," Graziano continued. "She is doing the right thing leaving the show, and I wish her all the best."
Leaving the show was reportedly a calculated move for DiMichele. "She's trying to fix her image," a source said last month.
One person who was suprised about her exit was Drita D'avanzo. The blonde admitted she'd miss her co-star and friend on the show. "I was shocked," D'avanzo said. "I'm not happy about her resigning. I don't want her to leave. I mean, she has to do what's best for her family, and obviously I'm on her side whatever road she chooses to take. She had a very hard time on this show."
Someone who isn't worrying about anything is Mob Wives star Big Ang (aka Angela Raiola), who was spotted hosting a Mimosa brunch at KTCHN in New York City over the Memorial Day weekend. "You can only control two things [in life]," Big Ang said. "Your style and how you treat people." No word yet on when Season 5 will start airing on VH1.
