Well, that’s a relief! Despite persistent rumors that fan favorite Big Ang wouldn’t be returning for a fifth season of VH1’s Mob Wives, Ms. Raiola herself is saying it’s all a bunch of bull.
“I don’t know where that came from,” she tells RadarOnline.com. When the site asked her to clarify whether she’d be returning, Big Ang gave an enthusiastic, “Yeah!” Although the drama gets a little tough sometimes, Ang loves doing the show. “I’m very friendly with all the girls and I’m looking forward to another season actually.”
So are we! Ang is definitely one of the most calming forces on the show, making her well-loved by both her costars and fans of the show. In fact, the warm reception from the public is another reason she’s so enthused about coming back for more. “The best part [about filming the show] is how many people recognize me and how much I’m loved by all my fans.”
While clearing up the nasty gossip about her own rumored exit, Ang also addressed the chatter about Karen Gravano potentially leaving the show: “I don’t think that’s true, either.” However, it seems to matter very little to Ang whether she does. “It doesn’t bother me if she’s there or not there.”
So what do we have to look forward to when Ang returns to the small screen? Sounds like she may have plans to go under the knife again. “I would like to have my neck lifted because it’s starting to get a little old looking,” she muses.
The 54-year old bar owner admits she feels pressure to look younger but says she’s probably nearly done getting big cosmetic procedures. “I’d like to do the top of my eyes and my neck at the same time. Be done and then that’s it.”
Are you glad to hear Big Ang will be back next season?
