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.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to give us an hourly play by play of their lives. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!

Reality Television has made us laugh, made us cringe, and most of all, made us realize that some people are just crazy. Proving that when you get a whole bunch of famewhores in a room to rehash a season’s worth of petty slights, silly disagreements, and passive-aggressive warfare; things can get really scary. A reunion is one place I’d never go without a bodyguard.
Below we count down our TOP 7 Reality TV Reunion Meltdowns. Oh, pseudo-celebs, you don’t ever disappoint!
I have to say that mob life as I always pictured isn’t quite as mob-esque as what I gather from VH1. Let me break it down for you…today’s Mob Wives‘ news revolves around a rap video and contract dispute. Not very Tony Soprano if you ask me.
It seems that Mob Wives Chicago stars Nora Schweihs and Renee FecarottaRusso have a lot to learn about the entertainment industry. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, both are being sued by their manager Nick Celozzi, Jr. He claims that he entered into management contracts with both women, and his talent company was able to land them a place at the Mob Wives Chicago casting call. According to the two year contracts which were signed in December, both women agreed to pay him fifteen percent per episode of their VH1 paycheck. With the women scoring $6,000 per show, Nick is entitled to $900 per show from each woman.
I really think I’m going to enjoy the newest additions to Real Housewives of New York…especially Carole Radziwill. The widow and journalist (not to mention princess and bestselling author) with close ties to the timeless Kennedy clan will be joining Countess LuAnn and Pinot Singer on the upcoming season. She was recently interviewed by the New York Post where she described herself as the “unlikely housewife.” I like her already.
Calling the show a “job offer”, Carole explains, “Critical acclaim is great, and it gets you the corner table, but commercial success pays the bills.” With the women of New York rumored to be making $500,000 this season, I’d say that’s not too terrible of a payday.
While many ladies try to finagle their way into the franchise by befriending wives or crashing cocktail parties (an estimated 500 women tried out for Beverly Hills), Carole had no desire to pursue reality television. Of her friend and Bravo King Andy Cohen, she says,“I could probably count on one hand the number of conversations I’ve ever had about the ‘Housewives’ show with him.”
We’re bringing you an all new photo post this week! Check out what your favorite reality TV stars have been up to all week long!

Below you’ll find reality stars glamming it up on the red carpet and out and about in L.A., NYC, and everywhere in between. Among them: Kendra Wilkinson, Toni Braxton, Renee Graziano, Drita D’avanzo, and more!
Part two of the Mob Wives reunion starts amidst the chaos of the Drita D’Avanzo and Ramona Rizzo. Renee Graziano is trying to separate the women, and Drita leaves the set. Joy Behar doesn’t even get out of her seat. She’s just watching the craziness. Finally the women come back to the sofas, where Drita and Ramona continue to scream and bleep and threaten to kill one another off camera. I think they even decide to fight it out after the reunion (in the parking lot, perhaps?), and there are accusations of being in a gang. They are too well-dressed for this nonsense. Carla Facciolo and Karen Gravano are trying to keep the peace, urging the women to speak nicely. Renee tries to redirect, and Karen jumps on her for interrupting Joy. Renee tells Joy how to run the show, and it actually makes sense.
Joy seems to have regained control and Drita and Ramona are able to discuss the fight without raising their voices…too much. The next confrontation highlighted is between Drita and Karen. Karen and Drita have different definitions of friendship, but they plan to respect their truce. Joy is concerned that once people start gossiping on Staten Island, the truce will disappear. Karen and Drita reveal that they have promised to go directly to the other to resolve any issues regarding the rumor mill. Ramona says that she and Carla have a similar agreement, but it seems that Carla still likes to talk about her. Joy was excited that she was able to keep the women calm for at least a few minutes. We need more Big Ang and less bleeping.
