The time had finally come for Bella Capo to tell her story. It wasn’t an easy decision because it meant digging up memories that were so painful many had been smashed down as though in a trash compactor, never to be released.
It is not for the faint of heart, and reliving the life of an abused child of a crime boss, almost losing her life many times, stalked by a man who turned from a perfect husband to a perfect threat, and her life in “the Hood” is just part of it.
Many thanks to her mentor Tony “Nap” Napoli, formerly of the Genovese family, for encouraging Bella to tell her story to help other abused women. Learn about how after the glamour days when she ran after-hours clubs on Sunset Strip, she wound up in the Hood, conquered her fear and became a white woman boss in the Crips, who incidentally saved her life more than once.
Bella’s baring of her soul will bring tears to your eyes as you cheer this beautiful, courageous woman on and applaud her dedication to helping others who are enduring what she did despite severe PTSD and traumatic brain injury from the beatings she received earlier in life.
