'Big Ang' Premiere: Meet Neil, Ang's Estranged Husband (VIDEO)

Viewers couldn't get enough of Big Ang on "Mob Wives," so VH1 acquiesced to the demand and gave her a spin-off show. For the premiere of "Big Ang" (Sun., 9 p.m. ET on VH1), Angela Raialo introduced viewers to one of the most elusive figures in reality television history.

Big Ang's estranged husband Neil was like Norm's wife on "Cheers" and Niles' wife on spin-off "Frasier," among others. But she didn't keep her oft-discussed but never seen husband invisible in her own spin-off. Instead, Neil made his first-ever on-screen appearance, and brought with him an unexpected proposal.

For the past three years, Ang and Neil have been living apart. But Neil thinks it's time for a change. "I think I'm ready to move back in," he told her.

Ang took some time to think it over, and was even considering letting him move back in. Admittedly, though, she was "on Patron" when she made that call. "I should sleep on this," she ultimately concluded.

So will he move in? Keep watching "Big Ang" on Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on VH1.
