Big Ang From Mob Wives Has Throat Cancer

Mob Wives Big Ang as Marilyn Monroe!

That Sucks. But what also sucks is the choice of pictures people keep posting to share the news. I thought I’d put up one of her Marilyn pictures.

There is a lemon sized tumor on her voice box. Surgery is set for next week.

Mob Wives Recap: A Whole Lotta Ho Ho Ho(s)!

Mob Wives New Blood

It’s time once again for me to recap the Mob Wives.  It’s the penultimate episode and expectations for drama is high as the producers set up for the explosive season finale next week. Let’s get right to it!

Drita’s Dinner Party

Drita has all the girls over to dinner.  Drita has just finished her home renovations and she dares anyone to get out of line in her house now that she has it all done up. Let’s see how that works for her, because if renovations could stop Mob Wives from feuding, the whole clan should start their own home renovations.  Renee is the last to arrive and is seated next to Big Ang.  Natalie is already feeling bitchy toward Renee. Alicia is hopeful that Renee will stay in her seat and not put anyone in a choke hold.  Plus she is worried about her sentencing that is on the schedule for next week (yet still has not happened IRL).

Alicia basically tells Renee that she feels like their situation is very catty.  She says that Renee spreading rumors is harming her case.  Renee says that Alicia has it all wrong. She is not selling stories to the tabloids.  She may gossip with her friends from time to time but that is it. Big Ang asks Renee if she knows who the leak is. Renee says absolutely not. (heh) Renee says that she thinks that Alicia’s problem with her is really about Carla. Continue reading

Mob Wives Recap Double Feature!

Mob Wives Halloween 2013

I have been so very busy with the blog lately I have totally gotten behind on Mob Wives. I am barely awake and making coffee so I can make it for the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics tonight, but first I am going to zip through the last two episodes and give some random thoughts rather than a full recap. I am dying to hear from my Mob Wives watchers, it’s been too long! Sorry for the delay.

The last I saw, Alicia had confronted Renee as her number one suspect as “THE LEAK.” Renee is pissed about it, but frankly, I think Alicia had plenty of reason for her suspicions. Side note: I’ve only been to Philly once and I stayed in a hotel right across from that big clock. It was straight out my window and you could see it from the bed I was sharing with someone I would just as soon forget. Thanks, Mob Wives for showing it every episode. #memories.

Anyway, it’s Halloween. I hate Halloween. Where the hell are these women? I’m forwarding. It looks like Renee and Alicia will be reuniting at a Halloween party in Natalie’s funeral home. How lovely it must have been to have your loved one’s body there while that was going on.

Drita’s scene with Method Man was genuine and adorable. The rap is actually pretty decent.

I am starting to think Big Ang is actually serious about having a baby with a surrogate. If you missed her on Bethenny, her menopause discussion was priceless. Also, Renee, Drita and Alicia were recently on Bethenny as well. Yep, Renee and ALICIA.  The fact that Big Ang was not on with them, coupled this post with (which Renee actually responded to, Hey Renee! Don’t whack me! Love ya!)  makes me wonder if Renee and Big Ang are on the outs, Continue reading

Mob Wives’ Big Ang on Bethenny


Big Ang waltzes out on Bethenny’s stage in head to tow black with a black mobette sort of hat and knee high black plastic boots. Big Ang says she has had the name Big Ang since she was 12. She has a friend named Ang who was short and she was tall so it was Big Ang and Little Ang.  Bethenny asks about her sex life. Does she have a lot of sex? Big Ang says not lately. She is going through the change and she hates everybody. Sing it sister!  I live alone and still manage to bit the head off my perfect dog and my not quite perfect commenters. Patience is not my strong suit these days. Ang says she goes to bed with clothes and wakes up naked. Her boyfriend is practically suicidal over her hormonal changes.

Ang says the night sweats are the worst. Bethenny asks how long this is supposed to last. It is amazing to me that nobody tells women about “the change.” When I started having mood swings and brain farts I diagnosed myself as crazy. I went to the shrink. They put me on crazy pills. They didn’t help.  I FINALLY figured out it was hormones and now I am awaiting test results to see what hormones need balancing. If we knew more about menopause, I probably would not have spent the last couple of years convinced I was crazy. I mean I am crazy, but I am hormonal crazy not brain crazy. Sorry TMI.  Ang says it lasts for ten years. Bethenny is incredulous. Continue reading

Mob Wives Recap: The Point Where the Rubber Meets The Road


It’s billed as Las Vegas Part III but I swear  I feel like I just recapped part two yesterday.  Why do I have the feeling this episode is going to be like The Godfather III and not nearly as exciting as the first two? Hopefully, I am wrong.

We start with the girls still in Vegas.  All the girls are at a race track getting ready to drive race cars. Real race cars. When Big Ang and Renee join Drita, Alicia and Natalie at the track, things are tense but workable for a hot minute. Then Renee sees all the other girls laughing and getting along with Natalie and she is pissed off. She refuses to drive the cars with the other girls and says she will watch. It is interesting to note that Renee is the only one wearing shorts and open-toed shoes.  To me this is a clear indication that everyone knew Renee was not going to drive anyway.

Renee is getting furious with everyone. She feels like the girls are being two-faced by hanging with Natalie.  She confronts Big Ang and Alicia for not standing up for her. Renee tries to say that Natalie brought up Alicia’s husband; but, they point out it was Renee who brought up Alicia’s husband.  Both of them push back at Renee and tell her that she was at fault as well. Renee says that she sees where their loyalty lies. Big Ang is not too pleased with Renee questioning  her loyalty in talking heads.  Renee gets pissed at everyone and leaves. She probably has some plans with her sister in the casino and wanted the afternoon off. Continue reading
