Big Ang (Mob Wives, VH1)
Mob Wives is a perpetual drama machine, a power source that's clean-burning and self-sustaining. Sure, you're saying. Isn't everything else? You're not wrong, but what sets Mob Wives apart is Big Ang, the Switzerland of reality TV.
The gruff-voiced Staten Island-native manages to remain in most people’s good graces and stay out of fights, despite being friends with everyone involved. Did anyone know that was possible in the world of mobsters, let alone reality television? She’s impossible to hate on, and her catchphrases and priceless expressions (like this one) make for appointment viewing.
These qualities earned Big Ang her very own spinoff—Big Ang premiered on VH1 last summer to excellent ratings, and season two filmed in Miami to follow Big Ang opening another branch of her Staten Island bar, The Drunken Monkey. Thank you, Based God.
