Ramona Rizzo might be tight with Karen Gravano, but they are worlds apart when it comes to their shopping habits. When we talked to Karen, she told us she gets no joy from clothes shopping, while it seems that Ramona might as well start getting her mail at Bloomingdale’s, she’s there so often. When she was in the office recently, I chatted with Ramona about her sunglasses habit and what she’s doing to accessorize now that the Feds are currently in possession of all her jewels. Yeah, seriously. Our interview and photos with Ms. Rizzo are below.
Everybody dance now.
After watching a season of T.I. and Tiny: The Family Hustle, we realized T.I. was a man of many talents. Not only is his music career still thriving, but he’s an entrepreneur in fashion, he’s trying to guide his kids’ careers, and now the man is going to be a regular on the Starz series Boss alongside Kelsey Grammer. Deadline broke the news this weekend that Tip’s acting resume will grow ever longer, and he’ll be appearing in a season-long arc on the show, which films in Chicago. Sounds like he’ll be spending some time away from Atlanta, at least for a few months.
Tip will also show off his acting skills in an episode of Single Ladies later this year.

We caught up with La La Anthony recently — which is a miracle because the woman is doing SO much lately — to talk about the new season of La La’s Full Court Life and all of the other projects she’s juggling these days, and after our chat, we have to admit that we’re so excited for season two. In addition to the regular cast of characters that we know and love, La La’s bringing in some new faces, including radio DJ Charlemagne to the show, which you know is going to add some spice and drama to the mix. La La also talks about her new film, Think Like A Man, and who she’d vote for as the Greatest Woman In Pop Music. La La’s Full Court Life premieres on March 19 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
I’m excited for season two of Full Court Life, what are some new things we can expect from the second season?
Thank you! I think we’ve upped the ante some, we’ve added some more characters, Charlemagne being the main new one that we’ve added from the radio. You know, he’s a shock jock and he says what everyone else is scared to say, which can be good and bad at the same time, but I think it offers people a string opinion to talk about when we’re dealing with issues on the show, so I’m excited to have him be a part of it.
Big Ang has a “Code Of Silence” tattoo and she comes from a long line of people who don’t reveal their secrets, but when Andy Cohen asked her point blank if she was Team Drita or Team Karen on Watch What Happens Live last night, she admitted outright that she was Team Drita. We can’t say that we’re surprised, it’s just that she’s always so neutral on the show.
More surprising though was the Mob Wives star’s answer to the question “What’s the craziest place that you’ve gotten it on?” Ang’s response: “The car. No! An airplane.” Ang sure loves her transportation. Check out the clip above.
