Richie is the son of Paul and Kimberly Cantarella and brother to Toni Ann. He was born on Staten Island, but at a young age he lived in Pennsylvania and Tennessee while his family was in the Federal Witness Protection Program. Richie recently graduated from high school in Arizona (where he currently resides), and although his parents want him to go to college, he would rather go into the family business. At first glance Richie is shy, but to know him is to love him. In his free time, he loves to go to the gym with his father and sister and play video games with his friends. In the future, he aspires to get his real estate license and go into business with his father.
