Big Ang is NOT Switzerland


Big Ang with Carla & Handy

Big Ang is not Switzerland! In other words, Big Ang is not neutral. At least she is not neutral in my opinion, based on what I have seen and heard. In season two for example, she was well aware about all the issues between Drita and Karen. A neutral person listens to both sides and tries not to interfere. But Big Ang clearly seemed sympathetic with Drita’s side and they had many conversations in which Big Ang agreed with Drita’s point of view and added her two cents. Big Ang, who claims to hate drama, was even instrumental in bringing about the big fight on the balcony scene by asking Karen to talk to Drita at Renee’s party. 

I know Big Ang has a soft spot for Drita from the old days when Drita would get drunk in her bar, Nocturnal, and then engaged in many a bar room brawl. They both fondly reminisce about those days. And maybe that’s why Big Ang could not remain neutral, like Switzerland, and took sides. In at least one or more interviews, when asked if she was Team Drita or Team Karen, Big Ang replied, without missing a beat, definitely Team Drita. I recall that this clearly upset Karen and why wouldn’t it? Don’t say you are neutral when you are obviously not.

"Team Drita!"

Now, I don’t know what season three has in store for us, but I foresee some problems in the neutrality department developing again. Here is what we do know. Big Ang has been a lifelong friend of the Graziano family. If I remember correctly, she is best friends with an aunt of Renee and Jennifer. A relationship that is that long would mean a certain amount of loyalty and respect is implicit or understood. We also know that Renee is not on good terms with Carla in season three. Renee has had two previous serious issues with Carla concerning Handy Man and Carla’s not visiting at the hospital. Now there is another serious issue between Carla and Renee. Enter Switzerland. Big Ang is supposed to be neutral, right? If she is going to take a side it really should be Renee’s because that have a long history of friendship, right? But no, it doesn’t appear that Big Ang is going to be neutral or side with Renee. It seems to me that this go around Big Ang may be siding with Carla. What is it that makes me come to this conclusion when we haven’t even seen or heard any real details about season three? Twitter. I keep a close eye on what is said or not said on Twitter by the various wives. What I have learned is that Carla and Handy had a very nice Thanksgiving dinner with Janine and Dominick Detore, Big Ang’s sister. Big Ang was also there, as one would expect. They had a great time and posted many pictures of them all enjoying the holiday and being all "lovey dovey." So once again Big Ang isn’t coming across as very neutral and she appears to be clearly Team Carla. I did try to go back and find some of the holiday pictures posted, but low and behold they were removed. (And, where was Drita? I haven't seen her hanging with Big Ang in forever!)

Big Ang may think she is like Switzerland, but I think she has the wrong country that starts with "SW". During World War II a few countries claimed to be neutral. Switzerland maintained her unwavering neutrality throughout the war. Sweden, on the other hand, claimed to be neutral too, however, she sold iron ore to Germany, which greatly helped their war effort by making it possible for them to continue to make weapons for their troops. Neutral? Not!

I ran my observation past our beloved Mob Mistress who had this to say: “I like Big Ang. She is flamboyant, fun & contagious. She added a much needed comic relief & light heartedness that Mob Wives needed to take the edge off.  My viewing of the show led me to believe Big Ang claimed to be neutral.  However, some scenes clearly showed she was Team Drita/Carla, which is her right. She likes who she likes for her reasons. The Big Ang fans aren't going to like it, but I liken her to Japan.  I've been waiting for her to do a Pearl Harbor on Ramona, Renee & Karen for a long minute now.” And with that she went back to her painting.

Something must have been going on with Ang ,Carla and Drita for a long time. I saw pictures posted from the summer that Drita was with Ang and her family at Whoopie Goldberg house and then also pictures of Carla and Ang at a 4th of July party. Not to mention all the pics of Ang with Carla and Derek. Hopefully we will find out WHY Ang decided to chose sides. It looks messy like it was said, seeing that Ang is close friends with Renee & Jennifers Aunt.

Funny you should say that Melissa, someone else mention the same thing to me, more or less. I also noticed that Drita said she couldn't be at Big Ang's Sandy relief drive because she couldn't get a babysitter. That sounded fishy to me because she is able to get one for all her filming, rapping, interviews etc.

Hi guys! Well I have to say that this really isn't any different than Renee claiming to be neutral in the 2nd season even though she was always very quick to jump on Karen and Ramona's side. While Ang is close to the Graziano family, I don't believe she has to side with them just because she's close to their aunt. Especially if she feels they are in the wrong. I'm pretty sure the beef with Carla stems from something that happened over the summer with her, Jenn Graziano and a few others. Pretty sure it has to do with a guy, possibly Tan Tony. I also picked up on someone on Renee's side accusing Ang of being a rat. It should be very interesting to see how it all plays out

Not saying this is the case here, but is it possible to remain freinds with two people when those two people are no longer freinds? Why is it neccesary to chose one side or the other?

I think its gonna be Karen,Ramona and Renee vs Drita,Big Ang and Carla.. I dont know which side Vanessa is gonna be,but probably not on Karens side bc of that Gotti - Gravano thing..

I don't know if anyone else noticed this but Big Ang was recently on Big Morning Buzz Live and she stated that her peace-making skills were working as she got Drita and Ramona to make peace. Drita was also on the show a few days prior to Big Ang's interview and said that after the hurricane all the Mob Wives were getting along. Interesting turn of events on Staten Island.

Also I saw on twitter a good friend (male) of both Ramona and Karen tweeted that he was at an event with them and Drita was their as well. Now he has been very vocal in the past that he dislikes Drita and he's got Ramona and Karens back. BUT that night he went out with them he also tweeted he has found an all new respect for Drita. So it looks like maybe they buried the hatchet? I think this season is going to be all a out Renee and Carla.

Chiara Soprano said...

Definitely Renee and Carla will be at war over who knows what. Still I feel like something isn't right with Drita and Big Ang either. I think Karen is sick of fighting and is only going to say something if necessary. This season is going to be interesting!

Kevin said...

I also saw a few weeks or maybe a month ago on twitter that when Drita was with Big Ang and Carla at a club in Rhode Island Drita tweeted that she came to the club with boots and left barefooted (the tweet was later deleted but I took a picture of it). That same night Love Majewski tweeted that she broke two noses and took a picture of her fist. The next day she tweeted #carlacomeoutandplay, to which Jennifer replied and told her to stop. Love seems to be with Karen and Ramona all the time now and is co hosting Mob Wives Saving Lives so I think its safe to say she is definitely a new Mob Wife and has her own issues with Carla. Personally I've always been a fan of both Drita, Carla, and Big Ang and I'm very interested to see how everything plays out. Hopefully a trailer is released soon!

Chiara Soprano said...

Kevin you are very observant as I do seem to remember some of those details. I am on the opposite Team, Renee, Ramona and Karen. There has been a lot of speculation about Love, but nothing has been confirmed to me as yet. Stay Tuned! :)

Why should Ang side with Renee just because she is friend's with Renee's Aunt? This is no different from last season when Renee claims to be neutral with all the girls but cleary she always got manipulated from Ramona and Karen. I believe Big Ang would actually be neutral with all the girls if Karen and Ramona didn't act so immature or foolish last season.

Let's be real, I like Renee but she doesn't know the meaning of loyalty either. She never had Karen or Ramona's back and always took Carla and Drita's side. She always forgives Carla no matter how shady she is, so Big Ang probably feels like if she took Renee's side over Carla's Renee would actually attack her and she's probably right. Renee would cut any bitch for Carla, god knows why.

Not trying to be mean or anything but it seems that you thrive on these ladies lives too much. I understand you like mob wives and you like Jenn Graziano but you're up her a**hole too much and the fact that drita blocked you claim you don't like her but yet you still look at her twitter. Obsessed much? Like I said I'm NOT trying to sound me but it's just a show

Chiara Soprano said...

I don't thrive on the ladies. I blog about information, opinion, ideas, whatever please me. Some like it, some don't. I don't write as much for readers as I do for myself. I do look at Drita and Carla's Twitter, and others, for blog ideas. It's not easy to come up with fresh blogs every day. It's not an obsession, that's your interpretation. What would you have me write for months while the show is filming? (Rhetorical question) So thanks for your input but I am going to carry on as usual.

Anonymous said...

No offense Anonymous, but for someone who's taking about being obsessed you seem to know a lot about the details and backstory. Drita blocked who from twitter, who knows, who cares? At least popular bloggers tend to make $$$$ off ads to make the time and work worthwhile, what's your excuse for going deep?
