Angela “Big Ang” Raiola has revealed that she’s still friends with Natalie Guercio. As part one of the Mob Wives reunion special aired on Wednesday night, during which it looked as if both Drita D’Avanzo and Big Ang had decided to leave Natalie G. to fight her own battles with Karen Gravano and Renee Graziano, Big Ang cleared up where she stands with Natalie G. via Twitter.
Big Ang revealed that she was mad at Natalie G. during the reunion because she was told something but has now talked it out with her.
If that wasn’t clear enough, Big Ang confirmed that she’s still friends with Natalie G. and doesn’t care what others think about the friendship.
One person who doesn’t want Natalie G. around as much though is Renee. In an interview with OK! Magazine, Renee says Natalie G. — who is described on the show as someone who “allegedly” has a mob family member — and her boyfriend are just regular people who are trying to be something that they’re not.
“I think that Natalie and her boyfriend [London Rene] happen to be regular people just trying to make it like they are not. I don’t think they are too much into the mob thing.”
Renee Graziano, whose sister Jennifer Graziano is the creator and producer of the show, vowed to bring the show back to what it once was instead of letting Natalie Guercio and Natalie DiDonato continue their petty fighting in season 6, if there is one. Renee believes that the show’s original focus and intent has been lost.
“No, I won’t be having that next season. Even if the old Renee has got to come back, I’m going to step outside, have a conversation with God and control that. There needs to be a line of respect. And if those two girls want to do whatever they want, they have to do it on their own. In all honesty, this is way deeper. This is more about family, what has happened to our lives because of the lifestyle we chose. This aint’ about a bunch of girls fist fighting, calling each other bitch and whore. It’s not about that…We want to bring it back home. I think we lost it this season, and I can’t have that.”
Angela “Big Ang” Raiola agreed with Renee. “We want it to be about us,” Big Ang said.
Perhaps Renee’s belief that the show has lost its way by focusing on Natalie G. and Natalie D.’s drama is the reason why she wants Alicia DiMichele, someone with a real connection to the mob life, to return to the show?
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, Renee recently posted a tweet that asked for Alicia to come back on the show. Alicia’s father-in-law, Eddie “Tall Guy” Garofalo, was reportedly killed on orders from Karen Gravano’s father, Sammy “The Bull” Gravano. In February 2014. Alicia, currently on probation, announced that she was going to file for divorce from Eddie “Tall Guy” Garofalo, Jr., who is currently serving out a prison sentence.
