The reality television show Growing Up Gotti from A&E, showcases the every day life of Victoria Gotti. Victoria is the daughter of former mob boss John Gotti and she has her hands full trying to raise three sons as a single, working mother. Victoria Gotti first gained national attention because of her famous father, but was able to successfully parlay that fame in to a career as a busy author and television correspondent. Growing Up Gotti shows Victoria's struggles not only to support her family financially, but also to bring up her three sons to be responsible adults. She faces the normal struggles of getting her children to focus on grades and not girls, along with the not so normal struggles of having a father (and grandfather) who was one of the most famous mob bosses in history.

Victoria doesn't have an easy time with her boys as they all have minds of their own and often times the boys are more interested in how their hair looks then how to become successful. Victoria's oldest, Carmine is 19 and a college student who's interested in music and cars. The middle child John, who's named after his famous grandfather, is 18 and also in college. John is a good student, but tends to focus more on fashion and style then his mom feels he should. The youngest son, Frank, aged 15 is named after Victoria's brother who died at age 12. Frank is a good cook and has already followed in his mother's footsteps by publishing a diet book.

Growing up Gotti follows the family as Victoria tries to date, much to her children's dismay, and also as she struggles to balance her successful careers and home life. Despite all of their difficulties and disagreements, the Gotti family always manages to sit down to Sunday Dinner together to confirm how much they need each other and how important family truly is to this close knit group.

Growing Up Gotti Full Episode Guide

  • Celebrating the 10th anniversary of the premiere of the popular series Growing Up Gotti, A&E is reuniting with Victoria Gotti and her three sons, Carmine, John and Frank to discuss growing up in front of the camera.

  • Victoria prepares a special meal as the whole Gotti clan gathers to reminisce about the last few years of their lives.

  • Victoria buys Robert an eye-opening birthday gift, and he repays her generosity by driving her nuts. And speaking of driving, Victoria decides to keep a closer eye on Carmine and John by installing a tracking device in their cars without their knowledge.

  • Victoria begins to worry that the stress of being a business owner is too much for her young son; Frank and Carmine bring home two puppies against Victoria's wishes.

  • Everyone's an entrepreneur, as Frankie decides to open a tanning salon and Victoria tries to get her own magazine off the ground. Too bad for the both of them, Frankie's in over his head.

  • Victoria gets fed up with the constant stream of unwanted visitors coming to the house, so she decides to move -- again.

  • The Gottis return home from Italy and get some sad news: their dog Sebastian is dead. While Victoria--who suspects foul play--decides to give her dog the grandest burial possible, the boys and Robert get tattoos in the dog's honor.

  • In Italy, Victoria charters a boat to take her family to the fabulous island of Capri in high style. Unfortunately, she puts Robert in charge, and ends up with a dinky dingy instead of a fabulous yacht.

  • Victoria might be on vacation, but she still has to work on her cookbook. To pick up some tips for her next book, she takes a cooking class from some Tuscan chefs. While she's finding out that she knows as much as these so called masters, Pete and Luigi take the boys out fishing with the idea that whatever they catch, they'll eat. Unfortunately, they come up empty-handed, and are forced to join Victoria for dinner. They're cranky and hungry, and she has to cook up a storm to provide for her family, but a raucous and uproarious dinner raises everyone's spirits, particularly when the talk turns to razzing Luigi and Robert -- an activity the Gotti boys always enjoy.

  • The Gottis head off to Siena to see the Palio, a huge horse race through the streets of the town. Unfortunately, tempers are strained when Victoria and the boys argue over Mike, their bodyguard, who quit in a huff the night before. And now she's got to chaperone her boys through the confusing, crowded horse race. It's a long difficult day for the family, but they finally come together and begin to enjoy themselves at the ceremonial Palio dinner, where Victoria realizes that she came on vacation to spend time with her sons, anyway and that she's still got Pete and Luigi to help her keep an eye on them.

  • The Gotti family arrives in Italy, the birthplace of their ancestors. As soon as they land in Rome, the boys start getting in touch with their roots at gladiator school. An expert on Roman fighting teaches Carmine, John and Frankie the moves, and the boys square off in armed combat. Meanwhile, Victoria sets off on a shopping trip. Her search for hair rollers runs into trouble, and the lack of air conditioning is a problem, but she still thinks Rome is the most beautiful city in the world.

  • The Gotti family is getting ready to go to Italy, and that means planning, getting passports in time, and making their flight -- all the things the family doesn't do so well. The boys ponder whether Italian women are hairy, and whether it's legal for them to drink in Italy. Meanwhile, Luigi is redoing the guesthouse so Victoria's sister Angel can move in. It's a race against time, because Luigi's going to Italy too, and he only has a week to finish the renovations.

  • John is graduating from high school, and Victoria is very happy and proud of him. She's less happy that he wants to go away for college, and that he and his brother Carmine aren't getting along. As John prepares for a big, flashy, and very adult graduation party, Victoria hatches a plan: She'll bring the family back together by bringing them back to their roots. At the big party, Victoria announces that she's taking the family on a very special vacation -- to Italy.
