Big Ang films Miami Monkey.
It looks as though Miami is officially the second home of Mob Wives.

First, Angela "Big Ang" Raiola opened an outpost of her Staten Island bar, the Drunken Monkey, on South Beach. Miami Monkey, which opened in May on the second floor of the Netherland on Ocean Drive, will feature prominently on Raiola's spinoff show on VH1. The show, aptly titled, Miami Monkey, will feature Raiola and her daughter Raquel managing the beachfront bar, while a seminude and slightly inebriated host of characters works at and frequents the establishment.

Miami Monkey, which premieres Sunday, September 8, at 10 p.m., will also highlight three Miami locals working at the bar. According to VH1, Morgan is a 24-year-old bartender who divides her time between Miami Monkey and other hot spots, and Cristina is a 27-year-old bartender who is "spicy, energetic, and flirty." Rounding out the local "cast of characters" is 26-year-old Ryan, a bartender/DJ/model/music producer/watersports instructor/ladies' man.

We hear that the original Mob Wives -- the show that features the wives and daughters of famous New York-area mobsters such as Sammy "the Bull" Gravano and Anthony Graziano -- is filming its new season in Miami, and the wives are eating, drinking, and strutting all over the Magic City.

Last evening, in fact, the wives filmed a segment of the show at Key Biscayne's iconic Rusty Pelican. We guess even a mob wife can have a hankering for fresh seafood instead of the usual veal parm every once in a while.
