As the latest episode of Mob Wives aired on Wednesday night, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola’s husband, Neil Murphy, posted a tweet in which he expressed his gratitude for those who have shown him support.
Neil, who was shown reconciling with Big Ang on the latest episode, tweeted his thanks to those who know “the truth” about him and his wife and how much he loved her. He attached to his tweet a photo of him hugging a very happy Big Ang.
Several of the show’s stars showed their support for Neil. Karen Gravano tweeted that she and the others know how much he loved Big Ang and that Big Ang knew as well. Karen called Neil “the best.”
Carla Facciolo also tweeted Neil her support.
Renee Graziano agreed that Neil loved Big Ang very much.
Drita D’Avanzo was still too choked up from Big Ang’s passing to watch the episode and live-tweet it.
Big Ang’s Twitter account, which is now being run by a family representative since her passing last Thursday, tweeted that Neil was by her side and they were not estranged.
On last week’s episode of Mob Wives, Angela “Big Ang” Raiola angrily kicked Neil Murphy out of their home after they got into an argument about him not supporting her, both emotionally and financially. Big Ang yelled at Neil for not going with her to the doctor’s appointment, which meant that she had to learn that she had lung cancer on her own. She questioned him on where the money from all of his working was going since she never saw any of it and he never contributed to any expenses. She angrily said that she wasn’t going to pay for his health insurance, which was costing her $900 a month, anymore and told him to get out.
On the latest episode, Neil returned to the house with flowers and apologized. He told her he didn’t know that she would get such horrible news at the doctor’s and that he now just wants to be there for her. He pointed out that her health is more important than anything else. Big Ang, who in a previous episode earlier in the season praised Neil for how much he helped her as she recovered from her throat surgery, agreed and took him back.
In her interview, Big Ang admitted that she needed him by her side.
“I am not wonder woman. I could really use his help, even though I hate to admit it.”
At the end of the episode, Big Ang and Neil, whose marital problems have also aired on Couples Therapy, arrive at the hospital for her lung surgery. Neil told Big Ang that he’ll be there for her.
“I’ll be beside you the whole time.”
During her appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, which aired on Tuesday, February 16, Big Ang said that she ended her relationship with Neil. Her reasons for doing so were pretty much the same as those she expressed on last week’s episode of Mob Wives when she kicked him out of the house. Yet judging by the recent tweet regarding Neil that was posted on Big Ang’s Twitter account, it seems that she forgave him after filming Dr. Oz and they were able to reconcile before her death.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, after Angela “Big Ang” Raiola’s death, Neil Murphy posted an emotional tweet in which he declared that he loves her forever and asked her to watch over their grandchildren. Co-stars Karen Gravano and Carla Facciolo confirmed that Neil was by Big Ang’s side as she passed away.
