First Blog!

Hello, everyone! 
For anyone who is a fan of the show Mob Wives and/or Big Ang, like I am, I hope you enjoy this. Angela Raiola, aka "Big Ang" is a big star on both shows. However, her own show, Big Ang, focuses on her life, family and friends. Anyone who follows it, knows that her sister Janine and her own family are featured on the show. I find watching Ang, Janine and her family very entertaining. But, I think we forget that people on television are real people with real lives.

 I have been at the Drunken Monkey and have had the great honor and pleasure of meeting some of this wonderful family. They are some of the most down to earth people I have met. They make you feel very welcome.

There are negative blogs and even more negative comments on Twitter. Sometimes people "tweet" about people they don't even know, but what bewilders me most, is when  people write negative things  to Ang, Janine or their other family members...if you aren't a fan of one of them, why take the time to write something? 

My goal here is to keep real fans up to date on what is going with the Detore/Raiola family and shed some opinions of my own. HOWEVER, this is going to be a POSITIVE blog and rudeness will not be tolerated here. The Detore/Raiola family are down to earth and deserve a positive blog that true fans can turn to and show their love! Remember, if you are in the Staten Island area, or even close enough to drive, visit Ang's bar, the Drunken Monkey at 1205 Forest Avenue and visit Janine's store, The Country Mouse at 570 Forest Avenue.

    1. Mary Jean-
      Thank you for taking the time to read the blog. I had gone to Angela's bar for the Season Three premiere party for Mob Wives and I was just really impressed when I met some of this great family!!

  5. Thank you, Cindy for your comment!

  6. Didn't know about your blog until I read one of Janine tweets. Thank you so very much for having a positive blog. The Detore and Raiola families have always rised above the drama and have shown everyone what real class really is. I look forward in reading your blogs about both these wonderful families. With so much negative energy out there it delights me that there are still people out there that are not willing to compromise their integrity just to gain followers. Both families do not even know me and they have always been very pleasent with me everytime I have messaged any of them on Twitter they are always polite to total strangers like myself. Thank you Deana Marie for giving us a positive blog. Your are a true blessing. Much love, Dee

  7. Dee, thank you very much for your kind words. I was just so SICK of all that negative talk out there, when I could tell this family had a good heart and really appreciates the support they get. Follow me on Twitter @Deana3452. I usually post the blogs when they are done. Thank you again for reading!
