“Bigger is better” is the motto this vivacious star lives by, and she’s certainly living up to that reputation! Angela Raiola, otherwise known as “Big Ang” from the popular reality television series Mob Wives, had an official launch party for her new product, BigAngWines on October 24th at Tello’s NYC. The authentic Italian restaurant was an intimate gathering of friends and family celebrating her newest liquor venture, which included Cabernet, Chardonnay, and Prosecco. Attendees were invited to taste samples from her collection, check out the elegant wine bottle design, and enjoy a customized cake made to replicate the bottle design itself!
When asked what inspired her to create her own variety of wine, the VH1 star said, “I do own two bars; my family was in the bar business; and my mother and father were bartenders too. I just thought, ‘Bars, bartenders, wine — it all went together.’”
Between launching her new product and shooting for her new reality series Miami Monkey, this lady is pretty busy. So we wanted to know how she finds time to balance her work and her relationship while keeping things so young and fresh. “It’s hard. As you know, I have a husband, and he just comes along with whatever we do. He’s there for me. I also have a family who stands behind me, and someone needs to make the money! It’s all about the money,” the star says with laughter. “I’m not home much, but it works! The less you’re with the husband or wife, the better. When you’re with each other constantly, you get under each other’s skin.”
‘Big Ang’ adds that, when it comes to the dynamic between a couple, “the husband should always love you more than you love him.” And for all of you singles out there looking for some premium dating advice, the reality star herself suggests, “Don’t ask any questions and don’t tell them anything. Just enjoy the dinner and the drinks!”
