Relatives of victims of Salvatore "Sammy the Bull" Gravano are upset that his daughter is starring in a new mob reality show, reports the New York Daily News.
Karen Gravano started taping "Mob Wives," with a potential 2011 air date on VH1, the story notes. The show includes one scene where she receives a prison phone call from her dad, who is serving 20 years for trafficking ecstasy, the story notes.
Relatives of the 19 victims of "Sammy the Bull" said she shouldn’t be on TV. "We’re the victims. My brother’s kids grew up without a father," said Jackie Colucci, whose slain brother Joseph was Gravano’s first victim in 1970, the story says.
Karen Gravano responded that her dad’s past isn’t her past. "I’m trying to get out of that shadow," she said, according to the article.
