Who Is Big Ang? Find Out More About The ‘Mob Wives’ Star (Video)

I recently tweeted that the “Mob Wives” commercial featuring Big Ang scared me half to death. I was kidding, of course, but her plastic surgery is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever seen.

However, for some reason, I was curious about her background in relation to the show.

According to VH1,

Angela Raiola aka “Big Ang” is the niece of Salvatore “Sally Dogs” Lombardi, a deceased captain of the Genovese crime family. Angela, a single mother of two was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, with her two sisters and four brothers. Big Ang always strived to be popular with “the mob.” She is what many consider a mob moll. Owning many mafia hangouts over the years, she became like “one of the guys” – even catching a case with some high ranking members of the mob. She was loved by them all. She is like a character straight from the movie Goodfellas and lives by the lifestyle code. Ang has dated many gangsters throughout her life but has always remained independent. She is not the typical women who would depend on a man. Big Ang has managed to make her own way and provide her own means within this world, though she was always lavished with houses, cars, jewelry, furs (you name it) by many well known mob wise guys. One would believe that they call her Big Ang for “E Cups” or her even larger lips, but is really because of her larger than life personality. She is hysterically funny without even meaning to be. Often referring to herself as “bad girl” she will have you laughing upon meeting her and keep you laughing until you leave.

If you were curious like me, you’re in luck, as next week’s episode is her official introduction.

    The mob wives is a joke….
    All these women…they are striving for success…. because of their criminal background…
    Big Ang is a FILTHY cross dresser from Brooklyn.
    Those lips and breast are ready to explode….where this''animal'' of woman makes the $$$$ without working?
    Shame on you Ang……..don't you ever say that you are italiana……
    Italy will disown you .

    How about this? My Great Grandfather was Buster Matthews. Policy/numbers kingpen in Cleveland Ohio. He was associated with Shondo Burns, Danny Green and others. He wasoriginally from Chicago. Now get this… I just so happen to work in a building in the same parking lot were Danny Green was killed when his car exploded.

    I absolutley love her. She reminds me of a cool aunt or a family friend that's been around since the day you were born but not a family member by blood but you love her as if she were. I'm amazed at how african american families, hispanic, Irish families and Italian families are so similar. Some racist Italians and Irish may not like me saying it but I'm saying it anyway. You don't like it? So what! We love to eat, love to have a good time, LOUD AS HELL, can get goog and rowdy at the drop of a hat. No matter were we are (unless it can be squashed quickly and quietly as to not embarrass the whole family) will get in your face in a minute, we try not to be to be rowdy but it don't always seem to turn out that way. And we have fun. Live in the suburbs and college graduates. I guess we're not so different. Just hated more than any other people. Just don't understand why.

    Luv you Big Ang!
