Like Vito, she would run out of money quickly and realize she didn't want to work for a living. I think Carmella showed her true colors when she refers to the house profits as "her money". Without Tony, that entire project never gets off the ground. Never passes inspection and never gets sold. In addition, by using shoddy materials, leaning on local inspector and relying on Tony; Carmella has "joined the club" moving closer to a life of crime, not distancing from it.
What's ironic about Tony's "understanding" with Carmella, is that he has not gotten much out of this deal, other than moving back into the house. His relationship with Meadow and AJ is distant at best. Carmella has been up and down in her support of him. He has no goomar and his only extracurricular activities have been one time shots (sorry) with hookers and strippers.
I thought that the idea behind a Swiss account was that it was a "numbered" account and the Swiss say "we don't know whose accounts these are", therefore they are not subject to levy.
a lifestyle you can drop like some poo'ed pants.important is the air you breathe and the water you drink, nobody can live from gold.dont forget it was her who wanted to join eye witness protection when junior tried to kill tony in season 1.
if she sold her crap plus the 600k she would end up with a million, that lasts forever somewhere on a sunny european island.
but as i have said she cares too much about the other three.
and what fomw said is also true, it was a bit wonderous that the plot with the neighbours who said at the bbq 'yes, and we are very successfull at the stock market' wasnt mentioned again.
doesnt she at another time bring some cash to some other brokers or is that the same story or is that money lost?
i think though both us might be right here, the characters are multi factetted and you never know which side the writers prefer.
