Big Ang got the Brooklyn disco wake she requested and hundreds came out to say their goodbyes.
According to TMZ things got very emotional, and ALMOST all of Ang’s Mob Wives co-stars came out to see their beloved friend one last time. Karen Gravano was banned from ANY of Big Ang’s services because, well, “No rats allowed.” While Ang loved Karen its said that her beef with “a co-star” could be the reason, as well as other members of the Staten Island community that could have been affected by Karen’s father Sammy “The Bull” Gravano’s cooperation. Newbie Brittany Fogarty was not there either since her father also cooperated with the federal government.
Karen’s co-star Drita Davanzo obviously came prepared for the worst; she brought her own bodyguards. (Yes, plural) Hollywoodlife reports that Ang’s family was “furious” with Drita for trying to steal the spotlight from Ang. One family was heard saying, “Doesn’t she know there’s only one star here today?”
As we reported Drita was recently arrested in Staten Island, but its alleged her behavior seemed more “fake and for theatrical purposes” than for safety.
Renee told TMZ on her way out of the memorial that Ang looked beautiful in her casket, and we’d expect nothing less.
UPDATE: After multiple stories surfaced about Big Ang’s family being angry at Drita for trying to steal the spotlight she cleared it up with one, single tweet. “@DritaDavanzo: I have 2 thank Angs immediate fam 4 asking me 2 stay after everything was over 2 reminisce on some great stories!Love you Ang! Love ur fam:)” Her rep later made a statement to Hollywoodlife.com saying the statement was, “simply not true. Drita did not hire bodyguards. Bodyguards were hired for the fans who attended the services. Drita came with her daughter and was very upset.”
There are three more services scheduled for Ang this week and there will most likely be more drama. All About TRH will keep you up to speed on all things Mob Wives as they unfold.
Thoughts on Karen being “banned” from Big Ang’s funeral? What do you think about the fake stories going around that Drita “steal the spotlight” from Big Ang? Do you think there will be more drama during this week’s services?
