Mob Wives fan favorite Angela “Big Ang” Raiola is amid her second battle with throat cancer, and this time she is focusing only on Angela. We’ve seen her and husband Neil Murphy have their ups and downs over the years and in a brand new interview with Radaronline Big Ang dishes on their marriage crisis and how she plans to beat cancer again.
“Things ain’t that great with us,” Ang shared at the Mob Wives premiere. “Right now I just want to be by myself.” She continued, “I think it’s time I just do Angela, it’s time for me to worry about Angela. Instead of taking care of everybody, I am taking care of myself.”
Ang and Neil starred in this past season of Couple’s Therapy with Dr. Jen, in hopes of saving their marriage. When the season ended the couple seemed to be in a good place, but as we have seen in the Mob Wives season trailer, things quickly go south.
The couple is now estranged and it could not have come at a worse time, given Ang’s health condition. Although, her cancer re-diagnosis may have put a major strain on their very fragile marriage, and it just became too much.
Ang opened up about her health by stating, “I’m doing good. All I care about right now are my kids, my grandchildren and staying healthy so I could see them grow up.”
While Ang and her Mob Wives co-stars claim to have “family-like” friendships she divulged she is not depending on them during this difficult time as they “have their own lives.” She continued, “I don’t hang out, I don’t have time for that. I have so much going on in my own life. We work together, that’s it.”
Ang then got candid about this season and shared what fans could expect, “They could find out how sick I was and what I’ve been through with my health,” she admits. “All the drama that’s going on with these girls, psychos! It’s an awesome season!”
Lastly she revealed some good news; Ang is optimistic that, “another network picks up” the all too real reality hit, Mob Wives, and that her and her co-stars will be reunited again!
Keeping Ang in our thoughts & prayers, and wishing her a full recovery; as well as a happy reunion with Neil in the near future!
