UPDATED: Dalia Dippolito Murder-for-Hire Story on Investigation Discovery Tonight
Improbable as it may sound, there is an entire television series devoted to people who hire hit men to kill their loved/hated ones. The Investigation Discovery show Nothing Personal is hosted by Steve Schirripa, the jovial comedian who played Bobby Baccalieri on The Sopranos . Now he uses his mobster street cred to narrate true-crime dramas about women who plot to kill their husbands -- women like Boynton Beach's own Dalia Dippolito .
Last May, Dippolito was convicted of solicitation to commit murder. Tune in tonight at 9 (Comcast Channel 111 in Broward and Channel 104 in Palm Beach) to see the whole sordid tale come to life. One of the show's producers tells us that Dalia's ex-husband and intended victim, Michael Dippolito, gave them an interview. And now that Dalia is home on house arrest, awaiting her appeal and working on a cookbook, the entire murder-for-hire saga just keeps getting weirder.
UPDATE April 3, 2012: Dalia Dippolito's June 2011 sentencing hearing is airing on In Session this morning.Tune in to truTV to see the judge call her "pure evil."
