Gotti Hottie Right Out of 'Sopranos'

Friends of ours: John "Junior" Gotti, John "Dapper Don" Gotti
Friends of mine: Soprano Crime Family

The Gotti glamour club debuted its newest member last week - and she's almost a double of Tony Soprano's daughter, Meadow. Forget the Dapper Don's grandsons, who set female hearts aflutter in the reality show "Growing Up Gotti."

The newest Gotti hottie jetted in from Southern California to support her uncle, John A. (Junior) Gotti, in his racketeering trial - and stole the show. Like Meadow Soprano, Victoria Gotti Albano - whose mother, Angel, is the daughter of the late John (Dapper Don) Gotti - has both beauty and brains.

The 18-year-old coed, who proudly wore a diamond "princess" necklace to court, attends a college in California and dreams of tangling with the legal system - though not in the same way as her grandpa. "She's going to be a lawyer," her grandmother, Victoria, said last week as they walked into Manhattan federal court.

The legal aspirations, good looks and mob upbringing raise strikingly similarities between the Gotti gal and the fictional Soprano daughter. Also a dark-haired beauty, Meadow Soprano studies at a prestigious college, Columbia University, and dreams of becoming a lawyer. Despite strained relations with her parents, the character shares a strong sense of family loyalty with her real-life Gotti counterpart.

The teen Gotti, who sources said wore a pendant with her grandfather's face while attending Stella Maris High School in Queens, is far from ashamed of the dead mob boss. In fact, her "princess" necklace was a gift from the Don.

"I think [John Gotti] was the greatest man who ever lived," she told reporters.
