'Mob Wives' Star Big Ang Offers Tips For Coping With House Arrest, Story Of Drug Bust In New Book

"Mob Wives" star Big Ang has a new book coming out, "Bigger Is Better," published by Gallery Books. In the tome, she discusses family traditions, how to cope with the stress of being under house arrest, and even her large breasts -- which she says killed a bat in the Catskills after it flew into them.

“I wanted to tell my story,” explains Big Ang when asked why she wrote the book. “I show the good times and the bad times. The times I was living best and when I was under house arrest, which was torture.”

Back in 2001, Big Ang says she was pulled over by the police and driven around for more than 10 hours while they asked her questions about her friends and business. While Big Ang said she was proud that she didn’t "flip" and talk about the people she knew, the police arrested her for selling drugs.

“I had 14 bags on me at the time,” confesses Big Ang. Now the star of VH1's "Mob Wives" and the owner of a bar, the Drunken Monkey in Staten Island, Ang says she’s changed. But the star still remembers being under house arrest.

“When you are locked up in your own home, you should get a trainer and bring the party to you,” Big Ang suggests. “It was torture. I like to go out and party. I hated it. Have friends over and don’t draw the blind. I need to see out, not just stare at the walls. It got claustrophobic.”

Ang says that she didn’t care about people looking through her windows. She always felt safe, she said, as she was being watched by the Feds and a policeman was always close by. But she warns, be careful who you let in your life. “I got in trouble because a ‘friend’ wore a wire.”
