If you want drama, watch ‘Mob Wives’. Because unlike a lot of other reality shows, these ladies aren’t crying over spilled wine.
Most recently, ‘Mob Wives’ star Renee Graziano has been dealing with her father’s arrest after finding out her estranged husband, Junior, was an FBI informant. Upon hearing the news, Renee suffered a heart attack and was rushed to the hospital.
Hollyscoop talked to Renee’s friend and ‘Mob Wives’ costar, Big Ang, who told us that Renee isn’t doing very well.
“I don’t know, I don’t think she’s too okay,” Big Ang told Hollyscoop. “I feel very bad for Renee. It’s a horror. I don’t even want to talk about it.”
One thing Ang does say about it is: “I stick right by her because it’s a horror.”
“Everybody’s becoming informers everywhere,” Ang tells us. “It’s totally not like it used to be. You can’t trust anybody.”
While that remains hands down, the biggest drama of the season, there’s also the ongoing beef between Karen and Drita.
“I’m hoping that it’s gonna work out,” Big Ang says. “It has to work out. They have to get over it. I know it’s hard but, if they would get over it, we would have so much more fun together.”
There’s so much of everyone else’s drama to document on the show, one thing that’s not really mentioned is the fact that Big Ang is married.
“I’ve only been married for two years,” Ang reveals to Hollyscoop. “It hasn’t been working out so great…but we’re trying to give it one more shot.”
She tells us she and her husband have been separated for the past seven months. Ang is also a mom and grandmother.
“I was just a regular bartender and a mother and a grandmother before the show,” Big Ang tells Hollyscoop. “All of a sudden, I’m all over the map! Everybody’s calling me! …Sending me gifts!”
Nice gifts? “Real nice,” Big Ang tells us.
Wait, wait, wait…let’s backup. Bartender? Yep, Big Ang owned the ‘Drunken Monkey’ in Staten Island, and when ‘Mob Wives’ became a hit, the venue went from having a modest crowd to people traveling from far and wide just to pay a visit.
Ang has also become one of the biggest stars on the show, garnering a ton of fans because of her laid-back and loveable attitude. One super fan even got a portrait of her tatted on him permanently.
Ang tells Hollyscoop she’s got “fans from all over.”
