Victoria Gotti (born November 27, 1962, in Brooklyn, New York) is a writer, reality television participant and daughter of the late Gambino crime family Mafia boss, John Gotti. In 1984, Victoria married Carmine Agnello and had four children with him: Carmine Agnello Jr., John Agnello, Frank Agnello, and a stillborn daughter, Justine. Agnello was convicted and sentenced to 9 years for racketeering and arson. Victoria Gotti divorced Carmine Agnello in 2003. She currently resides on Long Island; however, she is currently facing foreclosure on the mansion she was awarded as part of her divorce from Agnello.

Victoria Gotti was a columnist at the New York Post and US tabloid Star, and has written: Senator's Daughter (1997), I'll Be Watching You (1998), Superstar (2000), and Hot Italian Dish (2006).

From August 2004 until December 2005, she was the star of Growing Up Gotti, an American reality television on the A&E Network. The show, which was short lived, also featured her three sons. The Smoking Gun launched a parody of sorts entitled Blowing Up Gotti, which consisted of family visits to John Gotti while he was in prison that prison officials routinely taped. A&E faced exceptional criticism for the show. Some viewers complained that A&E was showcasing a family living in luxury that was purchased by blood money made by her father, John Gotti. They felt the network was glorifying organized crime. Many have also complained about the foul language used on the show, as well as the dysfunctional relationship between Victoria Gotti and her sons. Film.com said about the show: "Victoria Gotti has the warmth of an ice pick and her sons the charm of, well, thugs."
