Bella and Morgan at the Mob Museum
At the Mob Museum, which incidentally is an absolutely fantastic and beautifully designed venue–don’t miss it if you are in Las Vegas–we met people from so many places. For Bella, one of the highlights was meeting a few women who were suffering silently and will probably join the La Bella Mafia movement on Facebook. Wonderful that they discovered they can get that support and empathy.
From the Mob Museum we went across the street to the Mob Bar in the Grand Hotel for a meet and greet from 6:30 until 8:00. Some of our friends from Houdini publishing came by as well as Tony Montana (his book is self -titled “Tony Montana”) and Frank Cullotta (two books: “Cullotta – Life of a Chicago Criminal, Las Vegas Mobster and Government Witness” and his latest, “Hole in the Wall Gang”), both former members of the Chicago Outfit and they made sure Bella was well protected.

More photos will be posted when Bella and Morgan recover from the whirlwind week that began with an appearance on ABC Channel 13 News with reporter Victoria Spilabotte, an appearance for Mob Month at the Clark County Library, an appearance on Vegas Unwrapped Radio, a stalker, a book signing at Barnes & Noble in Henderson, the Mob Museum event and finally the Mob Bar. Whew!

WARNING! If you receive a post on your Facebook page or see one from Trisha Lane or Trisha Liona, this is a stalker. She set up a Facebook page on December 21, 2013 with the specific purpose of bashing Bella Capo and La Bella Mafia. All of the posts are about Bella or the book.I have been blocked from the page, but we have our ways of checking things out. She stalked Bella on Vegas Unwrapped Radio last night with continuous posts to host Aaron Phillips’ page even though he kept deleting them. She has posted on the Mob Museum Timeline calling Bella a fraud.
Dennis Griffin and I plus our publisher Geno Munari of Houdini Publishing are seasoned in the publishing business. When writing a memoir proof of many claims is required, which we have. However, we have no obligation to show this to people such as this Trisha or whatever the real name is, who demand they be shown proof. Munari was actually threatened by the same group before the book came out and it was reported to the police.
The 1 star review, which was posted on Amazon on January 2, is presumably written by the same person under a different name. The information is not that different than what “Trisha” claims. Why? Who knows!
Bella is not afraid of these people and has said so publicly. We are pretty sure who they are and will continue to warn about stalking until we find it necessary to report it to Facebook as slander. This person claims to be in North Las Vegas, but the IP address traces back to New Jersey, where all of the stalking began.
Speaking of stalking, once again ad programs are installing themselves. DO NOT CLICK ON THE LINKS. They are ads by a program called Video Player that has just appeared. Have to find out how to get rid of it.
Bella and Morgan discussed the book LA BELLA MAFIA co-authored by Morgan and Dennis N. Griffin. Victoria Spilabotte is a super host and we all had a good time. Check the sidebar column for our January appearance schedule.
