‘Mob Wives’ Big Ang Loses Battle with Cancer at 55

Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, star of the reality TV show Mob Wives passed away early Thursday morning after a long battle with cancer.

Mere hours after refuting rumors of her passing, Raiola’s family confirmed the star “peacefully ended her battle with cancer.”

The VH1 star was diagnosed with throat cancer in March 2015 which later spread to her brain and lungs. Last month Raiola revealed she’d been diagnosed with stage 4 lung and brain cancer, unfortunately, she didn’t respond to chemotherapy.

Raiola is survived by her two children and six grandkids.
