Rap Boss Gotti Set For Reality Tv Fame
Rap mogul IRV GOTTI's life is to be turned into a new reality TV series.
The Murder Inc boss, real name Irving Lorenzo, has teamed up with the producers behind Public Enemy rapper Flavor Flav's Flavor of Love series for his own VH1 show.
Gotti, who hit the headlines when he was charged with racketeering in 2005, insists his show won't only entertain; it will serve to help estranged families learn how to cope.
He explains, "I think women are going to identify with me and (estranged wife) Deb's relationship. I'm going to love her until I'm dead and gone.
"She's legally still my wife but we've been separated for like six, seven years."
But Gotti insists his reality series won't be as pleasant to watch as ones featuring Flav and former Run-DMC star Joseph 'Rev Run' Simmons.
He explains, "After a few episodes, they (producers) said (Simmons' reality series) Run's House is like a hip-hop Cosby Show, and I love Run's House, but they said my s**t is more like The Sopranos.
