Some of you have been dissing Bigg Ang's looks due to what seems to be excessive plastic surgery. It would be easy for me to type, "If she loves it, I love it." However, I'd be typing a lie. I feel the same about Bigg Ang as I do Renee Graziano. They were already beautiful women. There was no need to go underneath the knife. However, it's their bodies, their money & their choice. So there I've type it. I think Bigg Ang has creeped, crawled or ran into Joan Rivers territory, too much work done.

Now that I've given my honest opinion of Bigg Ang's appearance, I'd like to share what I love about Bigg Ang. I love her voice and the way she talks. I affectionately refer to her as The Mobmother. She seems to be able to reason with the younger Mob Wives. She wants the others to forgive & move on. In her mind, there are good times to be had. I think it's a noble idea. However, frankly after all that has happened I'd call bullshit if Drita D'avanzo & Karen Gravano ever made up. As a Mob Wives viewer, I want peaks & valleys. Mob Wives making rainbow cookies isn't going to do it for me. I do appreciate that Bigg Ang for the most part doesn't fuel the flames. Another thing I love about Bigg Ang is her laugh. I can be in the worst mood. When Bigg Ang laughs, I laugh. I can't help but to laugh. It's as if her laugh is the most contagious disease in the world. When I see her on the screen my mood immediately improves. She the mob's own version of sugar & spice & everything nice. I can see why the wiseguys flocked to Bigg Ang. After a long hard workday of allegedly loansharking, drug dealing, murking and stealing who wouldn't want a woman that brightens your day?
Bigg Ang is a character inside & out. She brings a lot to the sit down season 2 of Mob Wives. What she brings most is just pure comic relief in between the he said, she said & I put people in hospitals moments. And though Ms. Raiola isn't my favorite mob wife, I appreciate what she brings to Mob Wives.
If you're in or near Staten Island, you should check out the Drunken Monkey. You may luck out a get a deep voiced bartender with the sweetest personality & greatest laugh. Some of the Mob Wives frequent the hot spot. People have even claimed Carla Facciolo was there Thursday night with Handy Man. Frankly, I couldn't tell you. I wasn't there.
As always this is my opinion, you agree or disagree. I won't lose any sleep.
