As stated before on this blog, I love me some trash TV and I’m not sorry. I work in an art gallery, I read, I cook, go to museums – I’m allowed some lowbrow pleasures once in a while.
My current guilty pleasure is Big Ang on VH1. Big Ang, i.e Angela Raiola, was a bit character on Mob Wives, her deceased uncle being Salvatore “Sally Dogs” Lombardi, a captain of the Genovese crime family. Those genius producers at VH1 quickly realized that if anyone needs their own reality show, it’s this lady. The voice! The lips! The boobs! She’s the Jim Hansen Muppet version of a mob princess and I love her.
Best moment of television I’ve seen in a while occurred on last night’s episode. Big Ang recently had a minor heart attack. Normal. Her doctor tells her to start practicing a healthy lifestyle (we’re talking about a woman who smokes 2 packs a day and rips shots like it’s water). Seeking a quick fix she decides to get a colonic. Hilarity ensues, including the line “Exit only mothaf%*cka!.” This needs to be added to the Festivus glossary STAT. Link to video below, I would have embedded but WordPress has decided to screw with me:
I could go on about how amazingly trashy and entertaining this program is, but you won’t get it unless you hear her speak. So let your inner Wacko Tango out for a spin and get down with Big Ang. And remember – EXIT ONLY MOTHAF&*KA!
