Mob Wives

mob wives mermaids

Nothing like coming home from a twelve hour work day to drama filled two-hour premiere of Mob Wives! I don’t know if it’s a punishment or Christmas all over again, but I’m going to go with the latter. Karen Gravano is living the dream, back in New York after a stint in Arizona, and she wants her teenage daughter to recognize how fortunate she is to live this lifestyle. Meanwhile, Renee Graziano is hoping to leave drama and negativity in the past. A cook-out at Karen’s house is just what she needs, even though both women realize that Karen’s daughter Karina is going to give them multiple coronaries. She’s way too pretty to be a teenager, but Renee hopes that Karen will allow Karina to mermaid model for her Mob Candy line. At least they can keep an eye on her that way.

Big Ang is recovering from throat cancer, and with her blonde hair, she looks like a boss. She is extremely grateful for her friends’ support during her surgery and following ordeal, but she credits husband Neil for being her rock. I love Ang, and I am thrilled to hear she’s cancer free (as the season airs, prayers are with her now). Her doctor touts an organic diet and exercise…oh, and she needs to quit smoking. It’s hard. Also difficult? Drita D’Avanzo’s household. She’s juggling having growing girls and her husband home from the clink. While she’s thrilled to have the balance of a normal family, she wants her daughters to realize how far she’s come. Drita takes them on a tour of the projects where she grew up so they appreciate the beautiful home and pool they are fortunate enough to have. She’s worked terribly hard, and she wants her daughters to appreciate the struggle she’s had to become the woman she is today. Of course, a book about her life is the next step in her empire…if she can convince her husband Lee that it’s not disloyal to their lifestyle.

We have a new batch of reality star sightings for you this morning! Above:  Lala Kent and James Kennedy, (who are currently occupying the top 2 spots on Santa’s Naughty List) were snapped as they made their way around NYC this week to promote Vanderpump Rules.  Including an unforgettable appearance on Watch What Happens Live

Kyle Richards was snapped as she ran errands in Beverly Hills near her boutique, Kyle by Alene Too.  Across the country, former Real Housewives of New York star Kristen Taekman attended AOL Build at AOL Studios. 

Farrah Abraham, Big Ang and more were in attendance for Farrah’s Christmas Event And “Bedchambers” Book Launch at the Empire Hotel Rooftop.

Former Atlanta Exes star Torrei Hart attended the celebrity family Sunday funday toy drive and screening of “Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Road Chip,” as well as Malaysia Pargo, Tia Mowry and others. 

Big Ang's Cancer Is Back

This is heartbreaking. We all watched as Big Ang and her husband Neil overcame so much on this season of Couples Therapy, but now it looks like the Mob Wives star has another battle ahead of her, for the second time. Back in April, Ang learned that she had cancer after doctors discovered a tumor in her neck. But then a few months later (and after undergoing surgery), they determined that Big Ang was cancer free.

Sadly, that is no longer the case. Instead, during a recent check-up, doctors had to break the news to Ang that she is once again, dealing with cancer. However, this time around it seems to be worse. Definitely not the news that Ang wanted right before the holidays, but we all know that she is one tough cookie. How is she handling the news?

Well, what do you know!?! VH1 is finally getting a clue when it comes to drawn out series. Has the network finally realized that sometimes it’s better to end a show when the drama fades than to try to recreate manufactured drama with an old cast by bringing in newbies? No, I’m not talking about the Love & Hip Hop franchise…

The sixth season of Mob Wives is set to premiere in January, but fans of the show will have to get their fill of Renee Graziano, Karen Gravano, Drita D’avanzo, Carla Facciolo, and everyone’s favorite, Big Ang, as this will be the ladies’ last hurrah.

I smell a rat! Or at least, I smell the fragrance of a group of ladies who love to toss around that word! What would that scent be? Virginia Slims, vodka, and prison waiting rooms, perhaps? I know what it doesn’t smell like in 2016…Philadelphia or Natalies. That’s right, folks! Mob Wives is returning, and it’s getting back to basics.

The VH1 reality hit is scheduled to debut its sixth season in January, and the network is relying on the series’ OGs to bring the drama. Throughout the past seasons, we’ve seen Drita D’avanzo and Karen Gravano go from trying to kill one another (literally) to burying the hatchet (and the plates, and the chairs, and anything else that could be used as a weapon). Renee Graziano has battled personal demons–and all of her friends and co-stars–and demands the utmost loyalty to the point it causes her paranoia. Big Ang is always the fun-loving glue that keeps this group from imploding. Also, Carla Facciolo is returning as a full time cast member…we knew she couldn’t stay away for long!


Couples Therapy Season 6 Big Ang and Neil

We haven’t heard much from Angela “Big Ang” Raiola recently as the beloved reality star has been battling throat cancer. However, after opting for two major surgeries instead of chemotherapy, the Mob Wives scene-stealer is recovering well after doctors removed a tumor the size of a lemon from her throat.

Big Ang is rarely filmed for the VH1 series without an ever-present cigarette dangling from her giant painted lips, but that is no longer the case. Diagnosed in March, Big Ang immediately gave up the nasty habit cold turkey. She’s ready to be back in business, and her struggle with cancer, as well as relationship stresses with husband Neil Murphy, will be featured on the upcoming season of Couple’s Therapy
