Angela "Big Ang" Raiola mended feuds with her Mob Wives co-stars before her February 2016 death — but the same can’t be said for her family. In an exclusive interview with RadarOnline.com, Raiola’s sister Janine and niece Jeannie reveal they are still on the outs with Renee Graziano.
"Unfortunately, the only one who calls me is Drita," Janine told Radar.
Big Ang feuded with co-star Renee Graziano months before her death because she spoke badly about her family. Although the women mended their fight, she continues to be on the outs with Raiola’s family.
"When my sister was alive, Renee wasn’t writing nice things on Twitter," Detore said, adding that Graziano called her "twa**y."
"But everything becomes irrelevant when your mom and sister die at the same age," she said.
Another person no longer in their life is Raiola’s husband Neil Murphy. Although they were estranged at the time of Big Ang's death, he was by her side in the hospital and attended her funeral services.
"I don’t see Neil at all," Detore said. "Nothing, zero. He fell off."
Detore’s daughter Jeannie, who owns women’s clothing store The Daily Slay added, "People deal with grief in a different way. Sometimes maybe talking to my mom made him feel worse because him and my mom were close when my aunt was around. That’s why we lost contact with him."
Big Ang passed away from stage four brain and lung cancer on February 18, 2016 at age 55. Her sister previously told Radar they are celebrating the third anniversary of her death at her former bar Funky Money Lounge in Staten Island.
"We miss her a lot," she said. "I don’t think she ever left me. I think she’s always in my store. There are always signs. She wouldn’t leave me. She never did."
