Chris Paciello seemed to have it all. With heartthrob good looks and an A-list roster of clients and friends, he was a South Beach businessman/playboy whose local fame was reaching new heights—until his "wise guy" past came crashing down upon him.

When some of Chris's former 'fellas were arrested, they ratted him out to the government. One case in particular—a botched robbery that turned deadly—was a time bomb that would blow the cushy new world Chris created for himself to bits...and propel him straight back to New York City to face justice.

I want to talk about a Gangster wannabe woman and girls who think they have a cock between there legs and try to pass judgement on people. Phyllis's Rizzoto is a wannabe, her mother was the mistress of anthony Spero, her mother still get 10 thousand a month because Mr Spero promised her he would look out for her. Her daughter Phyllis' is a Pill head that loves to suck dick and tape record her circle of friends. Phyllis's Rizzoto is the big gist big mouth on Staten Island, all she does is talk about all her own friends / she still thinks her mother is going out with spero. Meanwhile, she is a terrible mother to her children, all she likes to do is suck all the kids on bay parkways cocks and talk to them without anyone knowing. She still talks to Dino Calabro , he is the kid who killed chestnut. And she thinks she can still mention speros name every where she god. Phylis Rizzoto is a big blowjob peace of shit and her mother is a whore to all the gangsters.
