On Feb. 12 Radar Online shares that "Mob Wives" star Alicia Dimichele Garofalo has made the hard decision to divorce her husband after the deceit and betrayal she endured when her husband was arrested for embezzlement and fraud through their shared trunking company business.

Alicia's mobster husband, Eddie "Tall Guy" Garofalo was sentenced to two years in federal prison while on "Mob Wives" after the feds picked him up. Alicia plead guilty to "cooking the books" and still awaits trial for her sentencing. During the show, Alicia claims that she had no idea that her husband was deep into the mob lifestyle and was completely on the outs about the whole thing, even cooking the books which she did, however, unknowingly.

Alicia was on federal wiretaps for several years while not knowing it because of her husband's connections. While she did the crime, she was mostly an accomplice in all of it because her husband was having her do the books for their trucking company without telling her what was really going on or what the whole story was.

Alicia says that she made the decision to file for divorce because although she will always love her husband, she doesn't think she can ever get over the hurt and betrayal that she endured. She says that there are just too many reasons to mention for filing.

Many fans of the "Mob Wives" show feel that Alicia is divorcing her husband to gain leniency in her own trial so that she can stay with her kids instead of having to hand them off to someone else while both their parents are in prison.
