The one good thing about being a reality star is that you can choose to give back to the community. Big Ang's best friend, Linda Torres, aka Blonde Linda, has teamed up with her daughter, Jaime, and "Journey for the Cause," to do just that. Both are passionate about this cause and Jaime let me know that this one is close to her heart. This is an evening that will celebrate the strength and courage of breast cancer survivors and those who were less fortunate.
