It's a misspelling of the Italian interjection "mamma mia!", which literally means "oh my mother!".
It is used by italians in quite tha same way as English use the expression "oh my God!", except ...Italians do NOT say "mamma mia!" when they're making love with their girlfriend!
"Hai visto quel film horror?" "Mamma mia!! Era così spaventoso!" (= "Have you seen that horror movie?" "Oh my God!! It was so frightening!")

There's a musical called "mamamia": is it about Italian mafia?

Jun 14 Word of the Day
Referring to women who are sexually or romantically attracted to other women. Applies to both lesbians and bisexual women, as it is only the same-sex attraction that matters, not any other attractions the women may have.

Originates from the Greek poet Sappho, a bisexual woman from the Isle of Lesbos, from which we get the term lesbian.
The sapphic women greatly enjoyed each others company.
