Now, my #Tonycandance. My grandson, I’m so proud’a him. He’s my heart and soul. He’s got kind brown eyes. The eyes that pull you in just like my husband Rest in Peace, Rocco. Tony’s tall and handsome and strong as an ox; sure he grew up on#Grandma’sMeatballs. That’s right. Antonio beddo mio. I got tree beautiful guys around me. I’m a queen and they’re my knights. My son Antonio, he helps people, he kinda runs a social service agency, you know, saves the guys in trouble, helps the girls in trouble. I thank Saint Ant’ny he’s a good boy. I have my Johnny boy, that’s Tony’s little bruddah. I call him “Wallio” – I try to keep them learnin the Italian and Sicilian expressions, and to keep their #BronxAccent and always be proud of it. Dat’s right. It’s the “Dese, Dems and Dose” language. Nuttin’ wrong wit it. It’s as beautiful as any language. Johnny-boy is an entrepreneur. He’ll tell you how you can invest in his brilliant ideas. He’ll make you a million. And he’s got a pair of eyes straight from Heaven, that Sinatra woulda killed for. #JohnnyEntrepreneur. He takes after my side of the family. Ya know the wedding party is at#GuyFierri’s American Kitchen and Bar – in #TimesSquare– so it’s ya know classy, upscale, and full of energy. All the family will be there. Come one come all. Whether you’re rich or you got oongatz – it’s a party so come on out. It’ll be an imbroglio at the get-go!

We’ll #toastTonyandTina#RaiseAGlass together! This is an agida-free zone! So check your miseratz at the door and come get your tarentell’ on!
