Vincent 'The Chin' Gigante died in 2006, However he still keeps an open line of communication with his daughter Rita, via spiritual mediums.
Rita Gigante and the love of her life, Fiancé Bobbi Sterchele met in 2007 at a “crossing over” session, where people talk to dead loved ones. After 5 years of dating, Rita proposed to Bobbi last year on their anniversary.
Rita and her Fiance, Bobbi say they communicate regularly with their deceased dads
and that both fathers have given the same-sex union their blessing.
“He’s fine with it. He loves Bobbi,” Gigante said
The wedding is scheduled for May 26th, 2013 and the couple plans to set places at the big table for their dearly departed dads at the wedding reception.
“We’re putting out chairs at a table for both of them,”
Rita says she never spoke with her dad (um...while he was alive) about her sexuality but he understood she was gay.
Last year, Rita released a book, “The Godfather’s Daughter,” about growing up with the 'OddFather' and how she leads a normal life these days.
“I’m not a princess! I work for a living; my father’s dead, and we’re not in the mob anymore,”
