On the last episode of Mob Wives, Angela "Big Ang" Raiola's husband Neil Murphy left their home following an explosive argument.

And as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, the late Mob Wives star had separated from her husband in December after Raiola felt like he wasn't supporting her through her cancer crisis.

But Radar can now exclusively report that in the days leading up to Raiola's death, Murphy, 43, stepped up to the plate.

"Her husband was there the whole time," Raiolia's sister Janine Detore told Radar in an exclusive interview.

Fortunately, the couple was at peace during Raiola's last days.

"They didn't have a fight," Detore said. "My sister was sick in the hospital. Do you really think Neil would fight with her? We would beat the s*** out of him. He would never do that anyway."

"He loves my sister, he does."

Though Raiola, 55, told Dr. Mehmet Oz on Tuesday's show that Murphy had abandoned her during her time of need, Detore believes Raiola had forgiven him in her final hours.

"My sister would never ever keep a grudge or hard feelings for anybody," she explained. "She was just like that. You could do anything to her and she would be like, 'Okay.'"

As Radar previously reported, Murphy was in the hospital when his wife passed away at 3:01 AM on February 18.

Raiola, who had been battling stage four brain and lung cancer, lost her fight after her body stopped responding to chemotherapy.
