James Gandolfini's widow was spotted out in public for the first time since his death, and her distraction of choice was shopping.

Deborah Lin, Gandolfini's wife of nearly 5 years, took a solo trip to a mall near their L.A. home on Friday, and went shopping at several stores ... including Bloomingdales. She also went to the bank.

According to a family spokesman ... they're working with the Italian government to get James' body back to the U.S. by next week -- and his funeral would be in New York no later than June 29.

People handle grief differently and the realization probably wont actually hit her until his body is back in the states.

The picture on the R actually looks like she's smiling and wearing eye make up. You don't wear make up when you've been crying a lot because your eyes would be swollen. She probably only had the baby to insure child support if they got divorced. Especially if there's a pre-nup in place. I hope he wasn't that stupid to not have one if only to insure the the welfare of his son from the previous marriage. That's who I'm worried about. I know... we all act like we know them.

Grieving comes later. At this stage after a loved one's death you are just going through the motions while attending to a large amount of stuff in a very short time. Honestly, at this point it isn't even totally real to a person. In this case the body isn't even back home yet. As we all know, grief arrives in stages and takes time to work through and everyone deals with it differently. My heart honestly goes out to everyone who is dealing with the loss of a loved one. It is brutal. So don't judge this woman for going through the process. There are only two types of people when it comes to experiencing the death of the loved one... those who have experienced it already and those who will experience it eventually. But it is unavoidable and it sucks worse than anything.

She's calculating how much money he left her. And she's too busy counting the money to make funeral plans right now. But she'll get to it as soon as she celebrates privately. All she can think of now is: money, more money, and more money Deborah. Now how is she going to avoid sharing it with his family..........

When I lost my twins in 1995, I had to shop for three days straight, even after giving birth and loosing my babies .. something to bury them in, something for me to wear, blankets for them, everything! I came back here to read these comments .. how freaking dare you people judge!
Deborah Lin was married to James FIVE YEARS before even getting pregnant. She had a career prior to marrying him. I don't give a **** what you people say, the woman seemed to love him and her him. She was good to his son. She's a beautiful woman who married a man that probably wasn't her type because of his HEART and personality. Seriously people, get a damn life, and stop judging!

Wasn't there a mini scandal when he left his first wife for this woman? Looks like he left the wrong woman. His first immediately flew to Italy when she heard.

I hope James had his will hammered out to leave his kids majority of his assets, if not all of them.

The other PHOTOS on the other websites show her buying a black jacket for herself & some clothes for her daughter. She looks exhausted with swollen eyes in those other photos. I love how you idiots can take a few photos and pass judgment .. oh & she WAS with James in Italy when he died.

This is what every celeb marrying a wife young enough to be his daughter has to look forward to. You drop dead and she grieves "privately" at a posh Los Angeles Bloomingdales whilst waiting for her dads- er, husbands body to cool. She may be texting In Touch to tip them off as to what store she can be seen "grieving" at next.

I am sure the star of The Sopranos had plenty of suits as did the wife of the star. She also likely has assistants that can do the shopping. He did not wear off the rack sizes so I doubt she was shopping for him. She may be shopping for herself so she can get out there and nab another big poppa once this pain in the ass funeral is done cramping her style.
