What Victoria Gotti's Kids Are Doing Today

Trends come and go pretty fast in this world, yet people are still fascinated by the John Gotti story. This is despite the fact that "Gotti," a film starring John Travolta in the titular role, earned a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes in 2018 — and despite the fact that several Mafia-based television shows such as "Families of the Mafia" relegated the man to a mafia caricature. Which, perhaps, rightly so. No less of an authority than Karen Gravano — whose father, Sammy "The Bull" Gravano, was known as the Gotti turn-coat — told USA TODAY in June that the depictions of John Gotti as an all-American anti-hero were rooted in fantasy, at best. Basically, we're pulling at straws by still trying to make something out of his story.

All that said, the infamy of John Gotti led to a bit of reality TV fame for his daughter, Victoria, whose three sons — Carmine, Frank, and John — also got famous by association. That's also thanks to the popularity of their reality show, "Growing Up Gotti," which was canceled in 2004 after Season 2. So, where are Victoria Gotti's sons today? We decided to try to find out.

Carmine Gotti Agnello, Jr.

Victoria Gotti's eldest son, Carmine Gotti, was not quite ready to let go of reality TV just yet when "Growing Up Gotti" came to a close. He appeared on the VH1 show "But Can They Sing?" in 2005 and performed Nelly's "Ride Wit Me," perhaps to prove he has a smidgen of talent. To be fair, he never admitted to being a good singer, saying he was more interested in becoming a record producer, but he still managed to pull off a decent performance.

Then again, in 2010, the oldest Gotti kid released a hip-hop album telling Newsday that he "spent three years working on this, three years of vocal lessons and choreography lessons." At the time, he was hell-bent on distancing himself from the naive Carmine everyone saw on TV. "I'm matured, I was a kid when they saw me last time," he told NY Daily News. "I wanted to step away from that whole image... I'm a young man now. I'm clean-cut."

But he wasn't quite as "mature" and "clean-cut" two years later when he was arrested for allegedly driving with a suspended license. He chose to lay low after that and transitioned to entrepreneurship instead, managing a scrapyard in Queens. However, in 2022, the business had been sued by state officials due to allegedly generating toxic waste, per the New York Post. "If you make a mess, you clean it up. Most learn this old adage before they speak their first words, but it's clear LSM never did," Attorney General Letitia James said in a statement.

John Gotti Agnello

John Gotti has mostly kept himself out of the spotlight after "Growing Up Gotti," but he did have a high-profile wedding when he tied the knot with his longtime partner, Alina Sanchez. The two got hitched in 2015, with Page Six reporting that the celebration drew in big names and wedding gifts amounting to millions. There were reportedly 500 guests in attendance, including John Travolta and wife Kelly Preston, "Entourage" star Kevin Connolly, "Goodfellas" actor Debi Mazar, and Robert De Niro's daughter, Drena De Niro.

His mom, Victoria Gotti, wholeheartedly approves of the marriage, telling Radar that she admires their relationship. "I couldn't be happier. As a parent you just want your child to bring home someone that you know loves them and that you know is going to make them happy," she said. "They met just before college and kind of saw each other through all of the academic years and they were always good for each other."

John and Alina have since welcomed two sons, Johnny and Mikey. Per Victoria, John is thriving and running the scrap business with his brothers. "It's very successful," she added. "They have four scrap metal plants between Queens, Brooklyn, and Long Island."

Frank Gotti Agnello

And then we have the youngest of the bunch, Frank Gotti Agnello, who, like his brother John, has also largely stepped away from the limelight. Judging from his Instagram page, he's still close with his brothers and mom and is admittedly a doting uncle to his nephews.

In 2006, Frank released a book titled "Gotti Diet: How I Took Control of My Body, Lost 80 Pounds, and Discovered How to Stay Fit Forever," which detailed his weight loss journey. And per Victoria Gotti, Frank remains committed to maintaining his fit physique up to this day. "He looks fantastic," she told Radar. "He's always in the gym, and he watches his weight. He never really went back to what he called the 'gorging.'"

Unlike the rest of his family, Frank refused to participate in the filming of the "Growing Up with Gotti" reunion special. NY Daily News reported that Frank claimed he was "sick," and he never relented after multiple requests from the production team. "We tried again a few times over the past few weeks to shoot him separately and we are still trying to get him to be part of the show, but schedules are hard and a sit-down probably won't happen," a source dished. "We just don't know why Frank didn't want to be a part of this. You'd have to ask him."
