Heaven just got a whole lot more glamorous and tan.
“Mob Wives” star Big Ang, real name Angela Raiola, passed away today at the age of 55 after a battle with stage 4 cancer.
After a what appeared to be a death hoax Wednesday night, Ang has finally found peace and passed away for real on Thursday at 3:01 AM according to her rep.
“She was surrounded by nothing, but love from her immediate family and closest friends,” her rep revealed on Twitter. “You, (her fans) were some of the most special people in her world, and she loved you immensely.”
“Thank you for your love, prayers and unconditional support of Angela right to the very end. She truly went out richer than any monetary could ever amount to.”
The reality star underwent surgery in early 2015 to remove a lemon-size tumor from her throat. Then in June she underwent the same procedure for the right side of her throat.
In December it was confirmed that Ang’s throat cancer had returned.
Rest in peace my raspy-voiced angel.
