Claudia Ochoa Felix:: Mexican Sinaloa cartel

Claudia Ochoa Felix likes to wear designer clothes and post glamorous selfies on Twitter but according to local media she is very bit as deadly as her black widow namesake.

Claudia Ochoa Felix

The 27-year-old makes no secret of her luxurious lifestyle. She sports low-cut designer dresses and bright lipstick in the many photos she posts on her social media sites.

The only thing that separates her from being like any other young woman is her trademark pink AK-47 assault rifle and her pet leopard.
Her photos include pictures of her shopping in luxury boutiques and occasionally snaps of her children, sometimes lying with hundreds of banknotes surrounding them in the bath or on the bed.

Felix is apparently now the leader of the “Los Antrax” hit squad that works for the Mexican Sinaloa cartel – which is one of the main sources of heroin in America.

She married a Sinaloa drug trafficker known as ‘El Chavo’ Felix with whom she had three children – however they later separated.
“Los Antrax” which she is rumoured to lead is the drug cartels elite contract killer squad, that was previously led by her lover Jose Rodrigo Arechiga Gamboa, 33, who was arrested in January.

If there is a dirty job that needs to be sorted out, Los Antrax get the assignment.

They also provide the guards that carry out the security for the cartel boss Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, 66.

Initially she was not in the public spotlight, but all that changed with the murder of a young woman, Yurina Castillo Torres, 23, who local media say was killed by a rival gang after she was mistaken for Claudia.

Since the attack Claudia has not changed her lifestyle much and can still be seen clubbing in the main nightclubs of Mazatlan, Culiacan and Guadalajara, but this time always surrounded by heavily armed men who protect her.

Despite the fact that a rival gang seems determined to wipe her out in a drugs war that has reportedly cost over 100,000 lives since 2006, she denies any connection to any criminal organization, saying claims about her are simply “cowardly lies and slander”.

GANGSTERS: America’s Most Evil

Dorothy Fiorenza: The Things We Do For Love

The New York Daily News called her a “brainy beautician” when Dorothy Fiorenza took the stand in 1999 as the key witness against her former lover, Colombo family boss Andrew Russo, but the cosmetologist-turned-lawyer-turned-government informant sure didn’t act too smart by getting romantically involved with Russo, angering the boss by marrying a dying Colombo family soldier, and helping to obstruct justice along the way. Fiorenza helped turn a hum-drum mob trial into a soap opera after she agreed to cooperate with the government in order to get a lighter sentence for her husband, Lawrence “Larry Tattoo” Fiorenza, who at the time of the Russo trial was serving a life sentence and was terminally ill with AIDS and cirrhosis of the liver.

Appearing on the witness stand with newly dyed platinum tresses, Fiorenza told the federal court how she had used her lawyer status to pass communiqus between Russo and his son, Joseph “Jo Jo” Russo. It was an alternate juror in Jo Jo’s trial that had been recognized by another Russo mistress. The Colombo family then hired a private investigator to track down the alternate, but Jo Jo ended up taking the fall anyway. The juror reported the attempt to the judge in Jo Jo’s case, who referred it to the Justice Department. The FBI began an investigation and eventually was able to build a case against Russo.

Over three days of testimony, with a different exotic hairstyle each day that garnered as much press as her devastating testimony, Fiorenza recalled how she met Russo while working at a New York barbershop and was invited to the mob boss’s Christmas party in 1995 while her first marriage was collapsing.

The next day, according to court records, Russo’s nephew told Fiorenza his uncle thought she “was the best thing since sliced bread.” The 32-year-old law student and the 60-something mobster hit it off immediately and began an affair.

Russo took Fiorenza to dinner at Elaine’s and to see “Phantom of the Opera.” She told the court how he often complained about the “heat” he was under from police who wanted to see that he was sent back to prison where he had just finished serving an eight-year stretch. Swept up in the romantic notion of being a mafia goumada, or girlfriend, Fiorenza became even more valuable to Russo after she passed the New York State Bar Exam and was able to pass almost unobstructed through security at the�MetropolitanCorrectionsCenter, where Jo Jo was being held.

Speaking with Jo Jo in carefully scripted conversations that prosecutors alleged were filled with secret messages, Dorothy later claimed she had no idea that her discussions were actually bits of coded advice from father to son.

The relationship soured when Dorothy realized that Russo was interested in a monogamous relationship  on her part  while he played the field and remained strangely loyal to his wife. Along the way, Fiorenza met Teresa Castronova, the “other” other woman who had ID’d the alternate juror in Jo Jo’s trial. Teresa was hiding out at an upstate New York horse farm while the FBI tried to find her so she could explain the jury tampering attempt. In the elder Russo’s trial, Fiorenza admitted that she knew she was obstructing justice by not going to authorities with Teresa’s location.

“He wanted to be with me but not exclusively,” a weeping Fiorenza testified. “He was obligated to other people — to his wife as well.”

“And you wanted him exclusively for you?” Russo’s lawyer asked.

“Yes,” she replied. “There were other people around who he was involved with and it was getting crazy.”

The one-way monogamy requirement was troubling to the self-described “mob groupie” who had met Larry Tattoo while visiting Jo Jo in the MCC. When she announced to Andrew Russo that she was ending the relationship to marry Larry, the boss was furious, she testified.

Russo was infuriated that she was involved with a lower-ranking mobster, she testified, adding that a friend of Russo’s told her that many members of the�Colombo family feared both she and Larry Tattoo would “sing and fly.”

In the end, that’s almost what happened. When the appeals she filed on Larry’s behalf went nowhere, afraid for her life and concerned that her new husband was going to die behind bars, Dorothy went to federal prosecutors and spilled her guts.

“We went to the government for assistance, security, for our safety,” she said.

Prior to taking the stand in the elder Russo’s trial, Fiorenza pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for her role in the scheme.

Like so many other women who are suckered by the romance of the mob, Dorothy paid a very high price for her blind love. She lost her license to practice law and was portrayed by the defense in Russo’s case as a mentally unbalanced and “troubled” woman whose life went downhill when she married a convicted murderer.

Shortly after Russo was convicted, Larry Tattoos and Dorothy Fiorenza entered the federal witness relocation program. By 2001, they had separated and Dorothy had applied for reinstatement to the New York Bar, claiming she had been mentally ill with bipolar disorder when she pleaded guilty to obstruction. The court turned down her request.

Part 2:: A Day With Brandy Cavalli

Brandy Cavalli is a screenplay writer that is quickly gaining notoriety in the independent film world.

She is sought after to work on various underground projects and she was recently chosen to become a member of the prestigious

Women’s Fiction Writers Association.

brandycokebusiness

In addition to leading her own marketing company, The Social Mob LLC, Brandy also works on the sets of many media projects.

She is known for her girly looks but kick ass attitude. She credits bad girl screenwriter Mae West as somewhat her muse, and when not writing about the mob, she is married to it.

Below is part 2 of my interview with indie screenwriter and international marketer, Brandy Cavalli.

I know that you have gained much success as an international marketer. How long have you been in the entertainment industry?

I have been exposed to the industry my entire life. My father was a popular college dj and he still works in the industry on an executive level, so I was born into the entertainment industry. I personally took my first job in music at the age of 18 working in the music industry. I still do minor projects and some artist management, mostly with reggae artists.

How long have you been writing?

I have kept a journal since the age of about 8. I used to write everyday as a child, as I got older I realized how easy writing came to me. It wasn’t until the last few years that I decided to use my writing as a talent and not just a hobby.

How did you get into writing films?

Actually kind of my chance, I worked in the music industry for many years and built a large network. After getting bored with music, I went into corporate America for a while but always felt like the entertainment industry was where I belonged. I decided that I would try my hand at television and I had planned to work behind the scenes in production or even advertising.

Writing films came about as I was approached to do a couple of reality shows. I went to LA to meet with an agent and realized that I would much rather be in control of any content pertaining to me. I didn’t like the fact that I would have minimal to no creative control so I decided to go to film school and learn to write/produce my own shows and films.

What genres of film most interest you?

I mostly write crime based material. I do enjoy comedy but so far I have only written crime and “gangster” style movie scripts. I would love to write a movie like Friday, both urban but comedy.

How do your male peers accept you as an up and coming female crime writer?

So far I have gotten a lot of love and support from the guys in the industry. There are very few female writers, especially of crime. I mostly work in the independent sector so I don’t have much competition. I’d say most of the guys are accepting and I’ve been approached by a few different producers to write on upcoming underground projects, which is right up my alley. I don’t plan to hit Hollywood anytime soon, I would like to stay independent and perfect my craft more.

What projects are you currently working on?

I just finished working on the script for a crime based indie film called “Lock and Load”, which is currently in production. I do a lot of work with student films in terms of scripts and production. I am also working on a documentary called “The Last King Of Jamrock” which documents the life of Jamaican crime lord Christopher Coke and co-writing the narrative script for the upcoming movie “The Gangster’s Girl: Last Girl Standing”.

What gives you inspiration as a film writer?

I get my inspiration from actual real life events or stories. I like real life documentary style films. I tend to take an interest in events that are considered sinister or crime based. I really enjoy writing about other people, especially of the underworld. I love to get inside of their world and help paint a picture of their world to the outside world. So I would say my inspiration is actually other people.

I know that you recently started your own film company, Femme Fatale Films, tell me more about that.

Femme Fatale Films is just another extension of my company, The Social Mob, LLC. Femme Fatale is a group of women screenwriters, who like me, prefer to write crime based or real life based scripts. In the future we plan to produce our own documentaries and other media. We are a different breed of screenwriters, mainly because we like to go where no other girls have gone before, we go to the streets.

Why did you choose the name Femme Fatale?

Femme Fatale describes me in a nutshell. I also think of sinister or “devious” when I hear the name Femme Fatale, which are exactly the kinds of movies we write.

Congratulations on your induction into the Women’s Fiction Writers Association. What can we expect?

Thank You! The Women’s Fiction Writers Association is a union of women that write fiction movies and scripts. It’s definitely a different world from what I usually do as most of my upcoming movie scripts are non-fiction, meaning real life based. I am excited to get the chance to work under other women in the industry. Hopefully one day I can write for prime time television (Hollywood). It’s a good opportunity and I am so honored to even be considered a member.

What other plans do you have career wise?

Right now I just want to focus on perfecting my writing skills. I do a lot of freelance writing and I am doing some intern work with a major local news station here in Atlanta, and learning a lot about production. In the future I plan to produce film and videos and other media. My first love is marketing so I plan to write, produce and market my own projects and make all the money. I am always thinking of ways to make all the money, not just some of the money.

I heard through the grapevine that you were recently engaged or married? Congratulations.

Thank you.

Being a gangster film writer seems as it would come easy to you based on your alleged ties to the underworld. How does your partner feel about your line of work?

He is ok with it. As you have stated, it is something that I am familiar with and it comes naturally. He is very supportive of my career and he gives me a lot of inspiration and push. He’s a hustler so he’s good with whatever I decide as long as I am happy and it makes me money.

There were rumors in the indie world that you were looking to write and produce a “Goodfellas” style movie about the Black Mafia Family (BMF) crime organization, is that still a possibility?

Yeah, it’s a possibility. I spoke to my hubby about it but we haven’t made any definitive plans. I feel like it would be a great movie and I would love to write one and I am sure he would be down for it. Maybe one day in the future we will put something together. There is and will never be another organization like BMF so it would seem like a no brainer to make a movie about them. – A real movie, no Hollywood bullshit.

In addition to co-writing on the film, do you plan to share your story on the Gangster Girls documentary?

As of now I am not sure. My other half is in full support of me being on the film but I don’t know if I will yet. I prefer to work behind the scenes, so you gotta stay tuned for that, it would be a crazy story. I would probably cry the whole time during filming, Lol. So far they are building a great cast of girls that have compelling stories and I am so excited about working with them. I enjoy helping others paint their picture. We will see if I decide to step in or not, it’s a strong possible though.

I also read on twitter that you may be the next cast member on the upcoming reality show entitled, BMF Wives? Is that true?

No. I am not sure how that rumor started but I am not going to appear on BMF wives. I love the concept of the project though. I would love to work on it from a creative standpoint, but I am not signed on to appear on the show.

What other projects are you working on outside of film writing?

I am writing my first mini series called “From a Socialite to the Mob” which is a memoir style series that documents a young girl’s life from wholesome beginnings to becoming the wife of an alleged mobster. In addition to that, I am working on a comic book series with CV Comics in which I will write the dialogue for a female vixen character. I am also doing some freelance writing for lifestyle and entertainment based magazines. All in all just perfecting my craft and staying busy.

What do you feel is the biggest misconception about female crime writers?

The biggest misconception is that we as women don’t have the experience to write gangster based flicks, which is 100% not true. When you have lived in the underworld it exposes you to a lot and you learn the ropes, the lingo and the way things work in that world. As a writer I feel that I am more qualified then a lot of male writers who have never touched that world. It’s still hard for society to accept a woman talking about guns and violence, but truth is there are some women that are just as vicious as the men. I can probably write a gangster tale with my eyes closed.

Black Mafia Wives throw blows via Twitter

 bmfwives_drama_mzshyneka_wotsn

 The cast of BMF Wives throw blows via Twitter.

Months ago, Word On The Streetz News and other media covered a viral trailer featuring four women tied to the infamous legend of the Black Mafia Family (BMF). Though no updates have been given regarding release dates or networks supporting the pilot, the ladies did appear on The Ricki Lake Show earlier this year in lieu of promotions.

Now the ladies are at each others throat as is seems to be a rat amongst the crew!

The estranged fiance of Big Meech and the longtime girlfriend of Southwest T are at the front of this showdown. Jen Flenory, Big Meech’s fiance and an Atlanta stripper, took to Twitter days ago to expose Tonesa Welch.

Her inner Ms. Quad came out as she threw shade to the 10th power! Big Meech’s wifey holds nothing back against her “in-law” as she is obviously bothered by Tonesa’s secret snitching for plea agreements.

Screen shots were collected days ago tracing the drama…check it out!

Diabolical Femme Fatales: Gangster’s Wives

As any solid movie buff knows, there’s a certain number of ingredients that go into making a movie about gang life. Whether it be the mob or street gangs, a crucial component in the world of those violent killers and drug-runners is the women that love them. They’re usually bad dames, dumb broads, or diabolical femme fatales that navigate the underworld just as deftly as the man (or men) they’re screwing (or screwing).

And because of their love for the dark side, we love them right back.

I bravely delved into the underworld to return with the 10 Sexiest Gangster Girlfriends and a few images that should act as a helpful visual aid. Plus, some of the movies on this list are a few of the best gangland films ever made so it’s okay if you start geeking out over the movies instead of the women.

Grab your tommy gun and check out these gorgeous molls – now in glorious chronological order!

10. Kitty from The Public Enemy (1931)

Sure, Jean Harlow is the buxom blonde love interest Gwen in the film (which gives me an excuse to put images of her in the photo gallery), but Mae Clark‘s Kitty steals the show in the most iconic scene. Besides, she’s also Tom Powers’s (James Cagney) main squeeze. Which probably explains why he shoves a grapefruit into her face. Although women didn’t play much of a role in this film beyond being eye candy for vicious thugs and furthering the iconic moll figure, The Public Enemy still stands as one of the grandfather’s of all gangster flicks. Plus, it launched Cagney’s career in a major way.

9. Verna from White Heat (1949)


Proof that James Cagney is not only a major gangster film figure, but that he also attracts the hottest females, his character Cody Jarrett is married to Verna (played by Virginia Mayo). She proves to be a devil in disguise, taking out the only woman he ever loved – his mother. Perhaps it’s that murderous streak that makes Verna so sexy.

8. Bonnie Parker from Bonnie and Clyde (1967)

There’s no denying that Faye Dunaway is gorgeous, but it turns out that Faye Dunaway packing heat is even better. Bonnie gets bonus points for being a member of the gang and for often being more malicious than her lover Clyde Barrow (played by Warren Beatty).

7. Anna from Get Carter (1971)


Appearing very naked in certain parts of the film, Britt Ekland plays Anna brilliantly. She exhibits an important rule for molls everywhere – why sleep with the boss, when you can also be sleeping with his best henchman? Especially if that henchman is played by Michael Caine, has his name in the title, and plans on running away to South America with you.

6. Elvira Hancock from Scarface (1983)


Oh, Michelle Pfeiffer, is there anyone else’s stomach we’d rather do blow off of? We’d be willing to buy you a Porsche 928 if you’d let us. It’s pretty clear why Elvira was able to catch the eye of both mob boss Frank and up-and-coming Tony Montana, but what’s unclear is why countless dorm rooms have posters of Al Pacino’s ugly mug when Elvira’s a lot prettier to look at.

5. Carol from Once Upon a Time in America (1984)


Yet again, another film that features two beautiful women to choose from. Elizabeth McGovern‘s character Deborah is definitely a high class girl looking to head to Hollywood, and Noodles does his best to impress her (mostly by raping her in the back of a limousine (classy!)), but the true siren of the film is Tuesday Weld as Carol (who Noodles only violently has sex with). Carol seems to have a heart lurking underneath it all, but damn if she doesn’t hang around some serious assholes.

4. Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction (1994)


Not only is Mia married to the mob boss of all mob bosses, she also loves $5 milkshakes, doing the twist and OD’ing. What is it with mob wives and drug abuse? A better question: who didn’t fall in love with Uma Thurman as she sweated through her shirt and had a needle plunged right through her sternum into her heart? Sigh. I know I did. A bloody nose never looked so good.

3. Mary from Infernal Affairs (2002)


Mary plays such a small part in the movie (besides intercepting a certain important disc) that I couldn’t find a screenshot with her in it. However, Mary is included on the list because Sammi Cheng Sau-Man is hot. Although after watching the movie I’m confused as to whether she’s the wife of a cop or a gang member or both or neither. Feel free to watch The Departed if you want, but in my book, it’s Infernal Affairs all the way.

2. Eva Lucas from American Gangster (2007)


Eva, played by Lymari Nadal, is a Puerto Rican beauty queen. I’m not sure I need to say anything else on the subject, but luckily, her character raises an important question, too. Would you want to leave your husband if his rivals tried to kill you? What if it was Denzel Washington?

1. Martha Marlene from Sin Nombre (2009)


Diana Garcia’s character in this movie experiences something rare in the life of a gang girlfriend. For most of her relationship with El Casper, he keeps her hidden from his fellow gang members. Since, you know, gangs share everything. So essentially, she’s mostly not a gang-member girlfriend, spending her days rolling around in her underwear as sunlight beams into her room. That is until gang leader Lil’ Mago finds out she exists and demands that El Casper be generous with his young beauty.

Part 1: A Day With Brandy Cavalli

Gangster Girls Blogger Brian Perry of CNN sat down with the film industry’s newest gangster writer Brandy Coke for a one on one to discuss her business and film career.

Brandy is an international marketer, entrepreneur and writer who is now using her skills to launch a new screenwriting career.

Her career began at an early age in the music industry and she has since worked with many artists, most of which whom now have achieved both national and international fame.

Most would describe Brandy as beautiful, cool, and extremely down to earth with a no non-sense demeanor.

She is currently involved in various independent film ventures and also lends her talents to various lifestyle publications.

She is the owner of The Social Mob LLC, a marketing and networking company based out of Atlanta. She is also the lead screenwriter for Femme Fatale Films, an all female screenwriting team.

MOBofficial1

All in all, Brandy Cavalli Coke is a young power player in business and she is quickly positioning herself to become a sought after writer in the independent film world.

Tell me a little bit about your organization The Social Mob LLC.

The Social Mob LLC is “my baby”. I started the group as a fun way to socialize with like-minded associates on Facebook. The purpose of the group was to encourage one another to “get money”. I wanted to start a group that we could “mob” together and have a place to share our thoughts with others of the same mentality. It became a “business” kind of by default.

Why did you choose the name “The Social Mob”?

The name came from the group, and I didn’t want to change from a branding aspect, it’s really a unique organization. “Mob” actually means “Money, Opportunities, Business”. Its kind of ‘underground’, not your typical organization.

What is the company’s mission of The Social Mob LLC?

The mission of “The Mob” is provide a networking canvas for young entrepreneurs that also encourages community involvement among young people. We partner with the Young Entrepreneurs Network to mentor college students looking to become entrepreneurs. The ‘moneyops’ team which is an outside marketing team, headed by myself, that provides marketing support for various products, organizations, and companies. In all, The Social Mob is a cluster of all things business and entertainment. We now have about 20-25 affiliates and outside marketing/sales associates. We recently launched FEMME Fatale Films. Its a lot of fun. It’s truly my passion. Lots of fun projects in store!

Why do they call you the IL Capitana?

IL Capitana is a name the was given to me by my Italian cousins. (Brandy’s great grandfather was an Italian wine maker and entrepreneur).

IL CAPO means “the boss or captain” in Italian so IL Capitana means “the female captain”.

I’ve noticed that you also have a charity called The Prettie Committee? Tell me a little bit about that organization.

Yes! My charity provides clothing and accessories for displaced women and young girls. We partner with many local shelters to raise donations and awareness in the community. We try to focus on women that were displaced due to “the lifestyle” and provide resources for the mothers to escape the streets and become productive members of society. We collect trendy clothing that the women can wear to job interviews, church, and other important functions. Appearance can really do alot to raise a woman’s self-esteem and we want to provide the best wardrobes possible to encourage self motivation and esteem.

What made you decide to get into charity work?

Philanthropy is something that is very dear to me. My mother is a lifelong philanthropist and humanitarian and its something that she instilled in me as a young child. I also wanted to give to the community because I feel that I am extremely blessed and feel it is necessary to spread your blessings around to others in a less fortunate position. In all, I just wanted to find a way to giveback to causes that relate to me.

I know that you come from a certain “lifestyle”, tell me a little about your past life.

Well, actually I came from a good home, my mother is a strong, powerful and educated woman. I ended up involved in the street lifestyle due to my choices in men. Personally, I have always been a feisty go-getter and fiercely independent, for that reason I’ve always attracted the bad boys. I started my career in marketing at age 17, even though I’ve always dated a certain kind of guy, I’ve always maintained my OWN identity and career goals. It was somewhat a double life. At work I was a professional and outside of work I dwelled in the underbelly, it was very much a contrast of two worlds.

So you would say you were inducted into the lifestyle, rather than born into it?

I wouldn’t say inducted because I come from a large family of hustlers and gangsters. My uncles and cousins are all street guys so honestly, it was a natural transition for me. I was always a rebel child so it was very easy to fall into the lifestyle but I did not see crime in my household growing up. My first REAL boyfriend was in the ‘streetlife’ and he was alot older than me, so he taught me alot and I took it from there. I jumped headfirst into the life once I left my mother’s house at age 17. At the time I really had no idea what I was getting into, it was a world-wind and I was the ultimate party girl, looking for fun.

Do you have any regrets?

Not really “regrets”, just lessons learned. I would have made some different choices but ultimately my choices are what makes me who I am. What I have been through has made me the strong person I am so I could not say “regret” I would say I would choose different for my children (when I have them). That’s why I try to talk to these young girls and guide them into another direction. I was lucky (BLESSED) to make it out and I want to save as many young women as I can. If I had not experienced the things I did, then I would have no story to tell them.

I know that you spent many years trapped in the lifestyle. How easy or hard was it to transition out of the lifestlye?

It was an easy transition in and a VERY difficult transition out of the lifestyle. You become accustomed to the money, the trips, the diamonds, the cars, the houses, the condos, the power and before you know it, you have spent years trapped in the circle.

Again, I always seem to attract this same kind of guy. After going through questioning, (Story Here) I decided enough was ENOUGH and if I wanted to save my life I would have to make drastic changes. I threw myself into my business and school and that was what helped me to get my mind in another direction, as well as ALOT of prayer and counseling.

Do you have any advice to women still in the lifestyle?

My advice is to position and transition out. It’s not going to be an easy process but it is worth it. I almost found myself in federal prison due to the lifestyle and that forced me to make a choice. There are many community outreach programs and churches that will provide resources, but my advice is to save yourself because no one else will. Once the man is gone, be it to jail or (God forbid) worse, us women are always forced to take care of ourselves and families.. and they will be able to do so.

Part 2 of this interview will be on From A Socialite To The Mob
