Rumors have been flying that Mob Wives is going to make an epic comeback — but this time around, they will be missing beloved star Angela Raiola — or Big Ang. The reality star sadly passed away in February 2016 after a battle with cancer, and her sister, Janine Detore, opened up to In Touch exclusively about what she thinks of a possible reboot.
"I'm not really sure if it's actually happening, because I don't really speak to any of them. I do wish them well, but I just think if they're gonna do it, they should just do it on their own. I don't think my sister needs to come into it, because she's not here," she said. When asked if she thought the reality series could succeed without Ang, Janine replied, "Me personally, no. I don't think so. That's just me being partial, maybe."
However, Janine admitted that she would watch the show if it came back for one major reason: "To see if they mention my sister or bring any of her memory up. If it was true, I'd be okay with it, but I'd have to see how that works out. I don't think they can have much memory with her." In the past, Mob Wives alum Drita D'Avanzo revealed that she would not take part in a reboot without her friend, which doesn't surprise Janine "at all."
"I think my sister was happy about everything. She would be happy about anything somebody did. She was never a jealous person or anything like that. She was happy that people did what they did," she shared. "I have her all over my store. I have her handwriting tattooed on my wrists, and I always talk about her."
