Big Ang and her husband Neil Murphy had quite the rocky relationship, but it was clear through it all he was a good man who loved her very much. This week on Mob Wives we saw Ang let Neil move back into their family home at his insistence, because he wanted to take care of her in her time of need as she prepared for her next surgery.
While it’s been said the couple split again since that time, and were estranged in the weeks leading up to her death, Ang’s sister previously confirmed they had reconciled and was there by her side until the end. Of course, Neil attended all of Ang’s services and funeral, but he has yet to speak to the media about the passing of his beloved wife.
Neil took to twitter to express his feelings during this week’s Mob Wives episode in a very sweet message that touched the hearts of Angela’s family and co-stars. “@MrBigAngVH1: Want to thank everyone who knows the truth about me and my wife and how much I loved her @biggangVH1”
Ang’s co-stars Karen Gravano and Carla Facciolo, as well as Mob Wives creator Jennifer Graziano supported what Neil had to say, and sent comforting messages back his way.
Not only that, but Ang’s family who is now running her twitter also shared a sweet message in regards to Neil, showing that this family will remain united and go on in Ang’s honor. When a fan (1 of many) tweeted Big Ang’s account noticing how much Neil loved Ang her family replied, confirming to the world the couple was not estranged when Ang passed away. “biggangVH1: He still does, and he was right by her side. There was nothing estranged about him at all!!!! @MrBigAngVH1 #MobWives”
Watching the Big Ang tribute on Wednesday night was a hysterical trip down memory lane. In one of the episodes Ang decided to let Neil move back in (common theme) and her sister Janine, and friends Linda and Jen are so excited because they love her and Neil together.
Despite their many ups and downs one thing is for sure; Ang and Neil had BIG love for one another!
Thoughts on Neil’s tweet? Are you surprised her co-stars and family are so supportive of Neil still? Did you watch the Big Ang tribute? Do you think we’ll see Neil on reality TV in the future? Was it difficult for you to watch Mob Wives this week?
