Family and friends are grieving the loss of Mob Wives star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, but no one is taking the death harder than her co-star Drita D’avanzo. In exclusive photos obtained by RadarOnline.com, the reality star is seen crying at the first of four wakes in Brooklyn on February 20.
D’avanzo, 40, was inconsolable when she left Scarpaci Funeral Home after paying her respects to her beloved friend.
“I’m good, but not good,” the VH1 star told an eyewitness at the wake. “I just miss Big Ang.”
The death has taken such a toll on D’avanzo that she vowed to be done with Mob Wives. “I’m never going to watch the show again,” she confessed. “I can’t.”
The wake was “open casket,” sources confirmed to Radar. “Angela was wearing a black dress with a black fur coat and heels. She also had a headscarf on.”
Raiola’s estranged husband, Neil Murphy, isn’t taking his wife’s passing well either. “Neil seemed a little upset,” the source explained. “He didn’t cry or anything, but he actually walked out in the middle of her video montage.”
Raiola, 55, passed away on February 18 after losing her battle to stage four lung and brain cancer.
