Writers’ Vlogs would like to take the time to say a proper farewell to Mob Wives star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, who lost her battle to stage 4 cancer earlier this morning at the age of 55. She was diagnosed with cancer in her throat last April and the tumor had been promptly removed. After the healing process began she was told that she was cancer free. Unfortunately, months later, her doctors found out the cancer had then spread to her lungs and brain.
On Wednesday, February 17, 2016, a rumor had stated on social media that Big Ang had passed “peacefully” and soon after the rumor began, Ang’s reps had to start clarifying that it wasn’t true. One of my closest friends, sent me a message last night telling me the news of her passing, however when we both looked it up, it was a hoax. We both prayed that it was a terrible rumor because we are huge fans of the infamous “Big Ang.”
Her personality and the way that she cared for others made her easily likeable on the VH1 hit reality show Mob Wives. She didn’t like for people to not get along as adults and she wasn’t up for any backstabbing behavior either. Big Ang called it as she saw it and for that, I personally was impressed with her. I didn’t exactly have to know that she was a loyal friend to many because it showed on Mob Wives.
When I woke up this morning to hear the tragic news about Big Ang via TMZ, I cried. She will be truly missed by her family, friends, and fans such as myself. This video, is a tribute to her and one of her funniest stories regarding her “boobs.”
May you rest peacefully Big Ang and your family is in all of our prayers.
