Meet Angela Raiola Aka “Big Ang”
“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 2 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.”
I LOVE LOVE Big Ang! I desperately want her to be my new BFF. I definitely think she is going to be the break out star of Mob Wives and like her a lot more then I do Ramona. I’m very excited for this season of Mob Wives. The season premiere for season 2 was 66% better than the premiere for season 1! The ‘Mob Wives’ Season 2 premiere had 2.36 million viewers! Congrats ladies. You were made for reality TV. Thoughts on Big Ang?
