Growing up homeless? Victoria Gotti's home faces foreclosure


Supermodel-turned-mob wife turned-reality TV star Victoria Gotti's home is in foreclosure, with a court having cleared the way for JPMorgan Chase to foreclose on the Long Island palace.

New York has an idea for how Ms. Gotti can use this as an opportunity to revitalize her career: "Really, just add some lowlights and contrition, hook her up with Countrywide CEO Angelo Mozilo for a couple of public service announcements, and it could revitalize her whole career. There really are opportunities in this market."

MoneyWatch's Ali Rogers adds that
"The cause of the "Gotti Gotcha?" News reports say that Victoria Gotti hadn't paid her mortgage for two years. (Fans of celebrity real estate may remember the case of Ed McMahon, who had a similar attitude of I'm-going-to-toss-the-next-24-mortgage-bills-in-the-trash-and-see-what-happens.)"
