Gotti's Secret Cancer Battle

Gangster JOHN GOTTI's daughter VICTORIA shot the first season of her new US reality show GROWING UP GOTTI while secretly fighting breast cancer.

The blonde socialite found out the devastating news during a routine mammogram last year (NOV04), but hid the test results from everybody - including her three sons.

She says, "When I got the call back I was stunned, but I didn't want to worry them (sons) in a frenzy."

Gotti reveals she suffered regularly from exhaustion as she shot and promoted the reality show, and lost 25 pounds (11.3 kilograms) as she battled cancer.

Ironically, her infamous father battled throat cancer in his later years and died from the disease in prison.

But his daughter in convinced cancer won't claim her life: "I am completely disease free and I feel 1,000 per cent well."

Victoria Gotti, I am very happy you are cancer free. But how is your heart? Is John going to school in Boston? I would love to see him as an attorney, God knows he can argue. This alone makes him a good litigator.But most importantly, take care of yourself Victoria and may God heal you and keep you around for a long time to come.
