But is there a biography on Alicia Guastaferro?
But a tiny one.
Alicia Guastaferro was born in Amherst, Massachusetts to 57-year-old Karen and 64-year-old Ralph Guastaferro. Alicia’s parents pleaded guilty to money laundering charges ($1.2 million in a Canadian telemarketing scheme) he faced 5 years in jail while Karen 10 months. At the end he was sentenced to 24 months in jail and fined with $10.000, Karen found guilty or collect and pay her taxes was sentenced to three years probation and six month home confinement.
Karen a former beauty pageant contestant was proud that her daughter Alicia began her own journey in beauty pageants at the early age of 11 months. She was just 15 when she appeared on ABC’s reality tv show Wife Swap the second episode of season 4 was premiered on January 2nd, 2008 under the title Boss/ Guastaferro.
It was there that Alicia became Wife Swap’s spoil brat, but why? Ok listen to this, her parents gave three cell phones so she could talked to all of her friends, she did her homework around 8 or 9 p.m and when she couldn’t her parents did those for her.
Received gifts everyday, these were placed by her folks under her Christmas tree at her home where it stayed all year long, her father sprayed tan her legs and she said she felt bad for people who were not attractive as she is.
“One of my favorite projects I’ve done for Alicia was a miniature church that I spent two weeks and hundreds of dollars building complete with pews and worshippers. We do not mind spending thousands of dollars on her projects as long as they look good and she receives a good grade. I spend time at work doing any research she needs for term papers and then I give the information to Ralph to type up. If she has projects that involve design or drawing one of our staff members does them for her because they are great artists. Teachers are always very impressed with her projects and she enjoys taking credit for them. When you look as good as Alicia having brains is just an added bonus.
“ Alicia is constantly on her phone. She has two cell phones now but at one point we gave her three cell phones to try and keep up with all of her friends. On any given day she can receive over 150 text messages. She uses a wireless phone headset so she can talk to her friends and watch TV at the same time. We speak to her as often as we can. She calls me everyday from school at exactly 11:40 a.m. When she goes out she calls us at least once to talk casually and gossip and of course she always calls us to coordinate when she and her friends need to be picked up. ”
Less than a year later on February 12th, 2012 Alicia made headlines when she filed a $100 million lawsuit against ABC and Disney. She claimed the showed caused her public embarrassment, suicidal tendencies , severe emotional distress, physical assaults at school, scorn, irreparable damage to her reputation and panic attacks due to the fact that her image was portrayed in Wife Swap, according to Guastaferro none things seen on the show were true, the show was a scam and they told her what to say.
