This week’s #TMITuesday feature is a strong, and empowered woman whom you may recognize from VH1’s series Mob Wives. I sat down to ask the reality star, and boutique owner about her time on TV, fashion, and got a lil gangsta with her in this week’s post.


1. Since appearing on VH1’S Mob Wives, what have you learned about yourself?

Since appearing on Mobwives, I have learned from watching myself that I am extremely proud of the woman I am and how the Love for my family exudes in everything I say and do. There is no amount of money or fame that is more important than the love and respect I have for my family. 
2. Do you watch any other reality TV shows? I’m really big on Little Women L.A, and MTV’s The Challenge.

I am a fan of the Kardashians, Don’t Be Tardy, and Christy knows Best. As you can see, I love watching shows involving Families. If I was ever going to do Reality TV again, it would only be to do a show with my family. 

3. What is your must-have item for a daytime look? What about for a night time look?

As owner of Alicia DiMichele Boutique, my biggest must have item for the daytime is my ripped boyfriend jeans, I’m obsessed with them. I’m also very big into BOHO at the moment. For night time, it varies, depending on my mood. Lol And I usually start with the Shoes on up! I Love wearing dresses or to Rock it out with some tight motorcycle jeans and a Rocker sleeveless tee and a Hot pair of pumps. My look varies from day to day, It changes like my moods. Lol
4. What was your biggest regret on Mob Wives?

My Biggest regret on Mobwives is the time it took me away from my boys and family and for trusting the wrong people.  

5.Since today is TMI Tuesday is there anything about yourself that you can tell the readers that they may not already know?

One thing about me that People really do not know is that I have always suffered from extreme anxiety my whole life, and I have learned through facing my biggest fears, that once you face your fears you become Fearless. I am happy to say that I have not suffered from any anxiety attacks in 4 years. The best is, if I was to get one, I know exactly how to handle it to make it go away. Let’s just say I got very good at “Mind Control” lol 

6. What would you say is your “theme song”?

My Theme song is “Brand New Me” by Alicia Keys. This is a Brand New Me, and I Love HER <3!

7. What is your favourite “gangster” movie? 

My favourite gangster movie is GoodFellas. That couple reminds me of someone I know

8. Other than Addiction Boutique what is your shop or online store? 

Other than obviously shopping at my own store, I love to shop at Nastygal.com

9. Do you keep in touch with any of the fellow Mob Wives cast?

Yes, I still keep in touch with Big Ang, Natalie, and Drita, and I can’t see that ever changing.
I adore them. 

10. What’s next for you Alicia?

As far as what’s next for me…..I can’t wait to see for myself. I feel as though when you are on the right path and genuinely happy, which I am, opportunities just are constantly coming your way, and that is exactly what is happening to me at the moment. I recently developed my own Logo and Brand, which is Amazing.
This symbol embodies all that I am and the woman I have      become. It's not where you have been, it's where you are going. To Inspire and Empower yourself, and above all to Love who you are, as you are in control of your own destiny.  She is a Warrior, she is a Goddess, she is Love.....                Fall in love with your life.
"Empowered by her journey"                                    ~Alicia DiMichele
