'Grand Theft Auto V'

'Mob Wives' Star

Too Fat To Sue

The makers of "Grand Theft Auto V" say they can prove "Mob Wives" star Karen Gravano was NOT the inspiration for one of their characters -- because Karen's way fatter.

Gravano has sued Rockstar Games for $40 million ... claiming a character in the video game -- "Antonia Bottino" -- is a ringer for her.

Rockstar fired back with its own legal docs ... saying Gravano's case is BS.   The company seems to concede there's some resemblance, but the weight of the evidence is in its favor.

Rockstar even tries to drive a wedge between Gravano and her friends, quoting one buddy who says Bottino looks like Gravano, but skinnier.

The company's case is clearly thin.

I don't understand how anyone could be so STUPID as to blatantly parody this woman like this. I honestly don't know why they have to do sh*t like this to make a video game.

All she needs is a judge who doesn't think people should be allowed to play violent video games and she's got $40 million.

Lol, the character's dad, "Sammy" Bottino was tried for murder but copped a plea by ratting out his friends and then Antonia's family had to go live in hiding, but then the bad guys found out where they were and tried to attack them. Yeah that pretty much sounds like what happened to "Sammy" Gravano", Karen's dad, and their whole family. The character might not really look like her, but the story is the same

Proper eating and exercise is important.
Remember, it is not even "Our Body" - it a Temple of The True and Living Yahweh.
