Married to Jonas. You think it would mean endless shopping trips to the most expensive designers on New York City's 5th Avenue and non-stop spa visits in preparation for tons of glamorous parties. But like any other marriage, Kevin Jonas and Danielle Deleasa face their ups and downs too, and on Sunday night, we got a taste of what being Married to Jonas is all about.
A Banana in Bed
Good Christian boy Kevin Jonas. Well, so much for that one, as Jonas' purity ring-wearing days are a thing of the past. His marriage to Deleasa (they tied the knot on Dec. 19, 2009) seems to have changed him. During the opening scene, the wildest dreams of teenage girls circa 2009 finally came true when we got a glimpse at Jonas' intimate bedroom. There was one problem, though... Deleasa was laying in Jonas' king-sized bed, and he couldn't help but make a joke about Deleasa wanting to be a wife that can impress in the bedroom. Gross!
But that wasn't the only sexually awkward moment of the premiere. During another scene, Deleasa was in the kitchen cooking up a storm with her mother and two sisters when Jonas came back from a grocery run. In the middle of some back-and-forth joking, Jonas took it a step too far when he talked about Danielle liking having "bananas" in bed. Bananas in bed? Was he talking about a sex toy? Of course Deleasa got pissed about this. What girl wants her mom to know that she plays with "bananas" (if that really is what Jonas was talking about)? Thank goodness the joke went right over her mother and sisters' heads, and probably most of the audiences' as well.
Meet Big Ang's Replacement
During Season 2 of Mob Wives, we were introduced to the wonder that is Big Ang (Angela Raiola), the mafiosa queen who rules all of Staten Island with her gorgeous lips and big smile. But she's not the only one who knows how to cook up a storm. During the premiere of Married to Jonas, we met the new breakout star of reality TV: Deleasa's father, Bucky Deleasa. Not only does he show up at his daughter's house whenever he wants with no warning at all, but he is a self-proclaimed expert on all things culinary, and he lets you know it, too.

A Jonas Meeting or Dinner?
It's quite intimidating to prepare a dinner for your husband's whole family, especially when they are the famous Jonases. Deleasa did her best to to whip up a tasty meal, even enlisting her sisters and mother to help with the preparations (they didn't even score an invite after all this). But when the Jonas family finally sat down for dinner, forget them talking about Deleasa's wonderfully home-cooked Italian meal. It was straight to business, and how the upcoming Jonas tour would effect Deleasa and Kevin's plan for having a baby. Pass the ravioli please, and when are you going to pop one out? What a perfect dinner-table conversation: the sauce on the pasta. Yikes. Talk about being uncomfortable. Not something I will ever discuss with my in-laws over supper (if I ever get married).

<p>Angela Raiola, known affectionately as 'Big Ang' by her fans, was an American reality television personality who first came to prominence after appearing on the reality series "Mob Wives" (VH1 2011- ), which tracked the lives of a group of women married to or otherwise related to alleged criminal underworld figures. With her blunt, straight-talking manner, deep gravelly voice and distinctive appearance thanks to a love of plastic surgery, Raiola became a daytime talk show favorite and earned a couple of spin-off series of her own. Born in Brooklyn, New York, Raiola was the niece of a late member of the city's Genovese crime family; her own real-life brush with the law came with a 2003 arrest for possession of cocaine. Her husband Neil was a sanitation worker, while she owned a number of bars over the years, including Staten Island's Drunken Monkey. Following on from her popularity with viewers in "Mob Wives," her own reality show "Big Ang" (VH1 2012) followed her own exploits and those of her family. A second spin-off, "Miami Monkey" (VH1 2013- ), found Raiola attempting to open a new bar of the same name in Florida. Raiola made her big-screen debut with a small part in horror spoof sequel "Scary Movie V" (2012).</p>
