1 :01x01 - Big Shots

Welcome to the world of Big Ang! After five years of running the Drunken Monkey, Ang has decided to give the bar a facelift in hopes of taking it to the next level and drawing a younger, sexier crowd. Ang aims to throw the biggest "re-grand opening" party Staten Island has ever seen, and hires a group of sexy guys to serve up shots and her very own drunken monkey to dance on the bar. She recruits her long-time best friends, Linda and Jen, and her sister Janine to help pull off the big event. Meanwhile, Ang entertains an unexpected proposal from her estranged husband, Neil, which could change everything.

2 :01x02 - Big House

After a heart-attack scare, Ang tries to clean up her act by quitting drinking and smoking cold-turkey and throwing herself head-first into a healthier lifestyle: working out with Anthony, playing tennis with Jen, and even attempting a disastrous colonic. But Ang finds that change is hard, especially when she's constantly surrounded by booze and cigarettes at the Drunken Monkey. Meanwhile, Ang gives Neil a "third chance" and lets him move back in, but second-guesses her decision when Neil arrives with a truckload of boxes. She needs a bigger place and she needs it NOW, so she and Janine make an offer on Ang's dream home, complete with a spa, a palm tree by the pool, and a stage in the living room.

Big Ang's birthday is just days apart from Linda and Janine's birthdays, which usually means one week a year is packed with parties. But this year Ang decides to celebrate a little differently. She forgoes a birthday bash for herself and throws Janine a huge surprise party to thank her for being a great sister. Meanwhile, Linda drags Ang along to a motorcycle class, deciding that the best way to mark this birthday is to try something youthful, but all Ang really wants is to relax by her pool and be waited on hand and foot. So for her birthday present to herself, Ang hires a backyard cabana boy to fan her, feed her grapes and cater to her every whim.
