Big Ang Dishes On Ending Feuds & Allying With Hated 'Mob Wife'—'Enough Is Enough Already!'
"Big Ang" Raiola has always been known as the peacemaker on Mob Wives, but when Renee Graziano talked smack about her family this season, she knew she had to put her foot down — and let her rage out.
"I am not going to be abused," Raiola tells RadarOnline.com in an exclusive interview. "You disrespect me? I disrespect you!"
Thankfully, Raiola's beef with Graziano has been forgotten.
"Now we got past it," reveals Raiola, who insists she doesn't "like holding grudges."
"You say sorry, I forgive you. That's it. She didn't mean it. We're in a good place," she adds.
But Raiola has still has a negative opinion about the drama that went down when Karen Gravano's boyfriend Storm had another woman in their house, but then claimed that it was his friend's girlfriend. Gravano accepted Storm's story and the couple moved forward, but Raiola says she wouldn't have been so kind.
"I would never accept that," she snipes. "That's a sticky situation. I felt bad for her at that time, but she is a grown woman. She knows what she has to do."
"If it happens again though, then you have to do what you have to do," Raiola continues.
As for the hatred between Gravano and Natalie Guercio that continued to smolder at the reunion?
"I think it's crazy and a bit much," Raiola says. "I am over that s***!"
Despite not wanting to be involved in other people's issues, Raiola has been a champion for Guercio and the only one sticking by her side to the very end. She even excuses Guercio for arriving with an entourage at Graziano's baptism when she knew that her arch-nemesis Natalie Didonato was going to be there.
"The girl was scared," Raiola says. "She did what she thought she had to do to protect herself."
However, Raiola admits she doesn't agree with the number of people Guercio brought to the event.
"You bring one person, you don't bring 10," she blasts. "Sorry, that's out of control."
And don't even get Raiola started on Didonato attacking Guercio while filming the reunion.
"This Natalie D? I think that she has some pair of balls," Raiola says. "Who are you? Where did you come from? And what the hell? You came to jump on the bandwagon. Enough is enough. Keep your drama to yourself. Keep it in Philly because you sound like an idiot."
Still, "until Natalie G does something to me, I'm fine with her," she says. "I am not going to start attacking her too."
"Enough is enough already," Raiola concludes. "I am 55 years old. I don't walk around fighting because I have grandchildren. I don't want my grandchildren to think their grandmother is a nut."
