Big Ang was the breakout star of VH1's "Mob Wives," and now the fan favorite is building her brand: She's writing a book.

Big Ang said Friday that her first book will be released on Sept. 11 through Simon & Schuster. It's called "Bigger Is Better: Real Life Wisdom from the No-Drama Mama." She says it will include "all kinds of stuff."

Big Ang's real name is Angela Raiola. She first gained attention on the second season of "Mob Wives" as the friendly one and peacemaker when the girls got into fights.

VH1's website says she's the niece of Salvatore "Sally Dogs" Lombardi, a deceased captain of the Genovese crime family.

The 52-year-old will also launch her own VH1 reality show, called "Big Ang," this Sunday.
