Gracious, everyone is an author these days! VH1's favorite caricature Big Ang is on a book tour to promote her new memoir Bigger Is Better. I hear the forward was written by Kilo. I kid, I kid. I adore Ang!
Big Ang was recently interviewed about the new book on the fourteenth fourth hour of the TODAY Show. Admittedly, I didn't give up this hour for two reasons. First, Kathie Lee Gifford drinking a fishbowl full of white wine spritzers at ten in morning doesn't really scream "journalistic integrity" so I can pretend it's not part of the original morning show, and two, everyone-and I mean EVERYONE-needs some Hoda Lee Kotb in their lives.
New York Fashion Week not only brings out the A-list celebs and fashionistas, but also the reality TV stars, as well. I mean, there ARE cameras present and freebies to be had, so of course they're out in full force!
Celebrity gossip hunterTom Murro shared the above shot of Ramona Singer posing with some lovely Fashion Week eye candy (aka the Schutz models). Happy Monday. You're welcome.
Also spotted was Big Ang who attended the Fashion's Night Out festivities at Sak's Fifth Avenue. Tom shared that Big Ang was as sweet as ever and also noted that Ang was NOT partaking in the freebies – she was just there to have a good time. Check her out below!

Last night was the finale of everyone's favorite Big Ang. Ang opened her tanning salon and she bought her own engagement ring (courtesy of Neil), and it was fabulous! Thanks for not disappointing, VH1, and happy Labor Day weekend to all of our fabulous readers!
Ang and her chest go jewelry shopping. It's like her therapy. Ang has a giant gem stone she wants to have set. She tells Linda that she really wants an engagement ring…she and Neil got married so quickly that they had to forgo the rock. Of course, now Ang is all about trying on the most gigantic diamonds she can find. She finds a 15 karat canary diamond for a mere $750K. Since Neil is only a sanitation worker, she wonders how he'll ever afford it.
Last night we were treated to episodes of Big Ang! Christmas in August? I don’t mind if I do…
The first episode centered around Ang‘s birthday, and her husband Neil decided to celebrate her big day by having her face tattooed on his body. If that isn’t love, I honestly don’t know what is. We learn early on that while Ang loves that Neil and her son A.J. have such a strong relationship, Neil grates on her last nerve. She’s not impressed that he’ll be tatting himself as her birthday gift until she learns it will be a portrait of her. Ang decides she gets to pick the picture he’ll use. Well, duh.
It was a Big Ang birthday last night! Ang planned a surprise shindig for her sister Janine, but both she and pal Linda celebrate their big days during the same week.
Linda comes to visit Ang’s chest at the Drunken Monkey. Anthony arrives with his new motorcycle. Linda manages to make sitting on a motorcycle pornographic. Of course she does. Ang is terrified at the thought of riding a motorcycle…something tells me that is foreshadowing. Later, Ang has her friends over to enjoy some bubbly and a very dirty pool. Kilo is breathing all over Lil’ Jen. Ang hates shoveling leaves out of the water, and she decides she’s going to get herself a pool boy for her birthday. He can fill her champagne glass, massage her head, and fetch her towels. No mention of cleaning the pool though…
A few months backBig Ang‘s son Anthony (AJ) Donofrio was arrested with two other men and accused of dealing cocaine. Oops! According to prosecutors, AJ, 23, faced up to 25 years in prison and a mandatory-minimum sentence of of one to three years. Luckily for him his mom’s on TV the defense argued that AJ was only selling cocaine to feed his own addiction to the substance.
The night after the Big Ang star appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon flashing around her newest bling, AJ entered a no-jail plea in exchange for going to a rehab program. Since Ang was busy explaining how she’s reconnected with her estranged husband after he gave her a diamond ring, she didn’t make it to the hearing. Other relatives appeared instead. Actually it would appear AJ’s lawyer recommended she stay out of the courtroom given her past legal indiscretions!
Last night’s Big Ang episode wasn’t as lighthearted as the show usually is. There were no jacuzzi spills or drunken bus rides. It was all about A.J.
Ang is beside herself that A.J. is at Riker’s Island for “allegedly” selling drugs. Until he makes bail, she’s watching his allergy ridden dog Kilo. His dog is named Kilo? Again, “allegedly” selling drugs. Perhaps A.J. is just a fan of measurement. Poor Kilo is shedding, and itching, and blind. Ang can’t wait for A.J. to come home and claim his dog.
After Ang threw financial caution to the wind on last week’s episode, I couldn’t wait to see what Big Ang had to offer last night! This show has been ebbing and flowing all season in my opinion. Fun times, boring times, over-the-top times, and more dull times. I love Ang, but I need more drama. Does anyone agree? Of course, I didn’t want said drama to be the arrest of her son A.J.
Ang’s house is finally getting furnished. She actually paid $5,000 to have her sofa upholstered in black patent leather. I can only imagine how sticky and noisy that will be for the people who are brave enough to sit on it. Comfy! As more furniture is brought in, her house is looking more and more like what I imagine a porn set would look like. Neil just watches in dismay as his wife barks orders. Ang is hoping that now that the house is complete, A.J. will want to move back home with her.
