Gottis Don't Gotta Go

Mafia princess Victoria Gotti saved her Westbury mansion from foreclosure Wednesday in a stunt that would have impressed Tony Soprano.

The daughter of Gambino crime family boss John "Dapper Don" Gotti agreed to a deal with the feds that will allow her to stay put in the Long Island home made famous on the reality TV show "Growing Up Gotti" several years ago.

Gotti will pay an undisclosed amount for 11 commercial properties formerly owned by her ex-husband, Carmine Agnello, The Daily News reported.

Agnello, who served time after pleading guilty to racketeering in 2001, owes the government about $7 million and has liens on his properties.

Gotti, meanwhile, owes JP Morgan $650,000 on her mortgage after falling behind on payments the last two years. Wednesday's deal means the feds will release the liens so Gotti can sell the properties in order to pay back her debt.

She's been the sole owner of the Westbury joint since 2004 and staved off foreclosure the following year. But federal attorneys who've been working for years to collect the judgment against Agnello warned that the properties will be seized if Agnello really does own them, The Daily News reported.

Assistant US Attorney Edward Newman was quoted in The Daily News as having said the investigation isn't necessarily over.

"There are substantial curiosities in the history of those properties," Newman said. "Somebody needs to be put under oath."
