Crime boss' wife likes 'Sopranos'

MELBOURNE, July 2 (UPI) -- The wife of a reputed Australian drug boss says she likes to watch "The Sopranos," the American cable TV crime series, because it reminds her of home.

More specifically, Roberta Williams told The Weekend Australian Magazine the show reminds her of the Carlton mafioso, some of whom are suspected of trying to kill her husband Carl.

She says her husband's gangland rivals have now are little more than "Godfather" wannabes who mimic Hollywood movies and attend underworld funerals largely to get their face on TV.

She says she is sad that Melbourne's underworld war, which has so far claimed about 30 victims, is leaving an ever-growing trail of fatherless children and grieving widows.

Carl Williams was jailed last month on charges of conspiracy to murder, an arrest that foiled an alleged plan by his rivals to kill him.

She said they have discussed his funeral just in case. He wants to be cremated; she wants him buried.
