Generation after generation of young pop female stars find themselves lingering in the huge shadow of Marilyn Monroe. You’d be hard pressed to find a frequent headliner that hasn’t taken their turn at doing a Marilyn inspired shoot. Heck, even attention seeking teen bride Courtney Stodden recently jumped on the train but I have to admit that I did not see this one coming… Mob Wives newest superstar Angela “Big Ang” Raiola has rocked out her own Marilyn Monroe 7 Year Itch shoot for Next Magazine. See a couple of images from the shoot and get a great quote from “Big Ang” on how she’s always had “that thing.”
Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, the latest and greatest breakout star from VH1′s Mob Wives, has taken her drama-be-damned good timin’ bigger-than-life persona from coast to coast! Leaving behind the familiar confines of the Big Apple, Big Ang is currently in Los Angeles where she appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live before having dinner at the famous BOA steakhouse. Keep reading for photos of Big Ang at BOA and hilarious videos of her with Jimmy Kimmel!
This is one of those cases where I implore you not to kill the messenger. We have really enjoyed us some “Big Ang” from Mob Wives, and we’ve written in detail about her ties to “the life.” Well it looks like those ties we’re tighter than we thought as court papers reveal that the 51-year-old is a convicted felon and was busted on numerous occasions selling cocaine. Get the details that include Raiola selling cocaine to a confidential informant and statements made by her while being under wire tapping surveillance.
VH1′s mafia-themed reality series Mob Wives won fans over in its inaugural season with a cast of no-holds-barred drama mamas who were more than capable of both talking the talk and walking the walk! (And by “walking the walk” I mean going tooth and nail in knock-down, drag-out cat fights.) But it only took a couple episodes into the second season for Angela “Big Ang” Raiola to steal the show with her life-loving and drama-averse personality! Oh, and her obvious love of plastic surgery!
Keep reading to see lots of photos of Big Ang when she was A Little Bit Smaller Ang as well as slightly less surgerized.
We’re all about the surreal world of reality TV and one of our favorite parts is when a seemingly ancillary character winds up stealing the spotlight and the hearts of the fan base of a show. The latest greatest example of this phenomenon is Angela “Big Ang” Raiola of Mob Wives. Peeps love em some Big Ang and some have went as far as to get her likeness permanently inked onto their body. Check out the Raiola ink and read some serious big love for “Big Ang” while you’re at it.
If you’ve been tuning in to the 2nd season of VH1′s docu-series Mob Wives, and apparently many of you have, you certainly noticed new addition Angela “Big Ang” Raiola.
She’s more outspoken than the other cast members (what a statement), lives up to her large nickname and even larger lady lumps as she likes to joke about and seems to fit right in with “the lifestyle” of the New York City Mob scene. Turns out that “Big Ang” should fit in because girl is connected not only through blood but through business dealings and just her everyday living. Raiola rolls with it so I though I’d key you in on her connections to “the lifestyle” and why you see her frequently getting respect from the peeps on Mob Wives.
There are divas, there are soul divas and then there are Staten Island (and one bad girl Brooklynite) divas that will damage your face and look freakin’ hot while doing it! VH1′s own Mob Wives; Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’Avanzo, Carla Facciolo and new additions Ramona Rizzo and Angela Raiola were in attendance for their network’s DIVAS Celebrates Soul at the Hammerstein Ballroom yesterday in New York City. See photos of all 6 and get brief bio info for Angela “Big Ang” Raiola.
“Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in!”
The Real Mob Wives of Staten Island are back, and it looks like their dramatic (and very successful!) first season was no fluke! Check out this 4-minute super trailer for Mob Wives season 2 featuring America’s favorite mafiettes Drita D’Avanzano, Carla Facciolo, Karen Gravano, and Renee Graziano with the addition of Ramona Rizzo, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, and Renee’s ex Hector AKA Junior Pagan (who was recently revealed to be an FBI informant who was wearing a wire while talking to Renee’s dad, leading to his arrest!) It’s hard to compete with Mob Wives drama!
