Mob Wives Stars Put Their Differences Aside To Support Big Ang During Cancer Battle!

Last week, the cast of Mob Wives taped their final reunion special, and according to a new report, the ladies decided to put their differences aside to support Angela "Big Ang" Raiola, who is currently battling stage four brain and lung cancer.

"The girls definitely got heated, and emotions were high," an inside source told People.

Apparently, Angela "Big Ang" Raiola left the studio, sticking it out for about half of the 10-hour shoot.

"Her spirits were up," Renee Graziano tells People. "She was looking fantastic and keeping positive,"

According to the publication, the cast stayed civil during the first half of the 10-hour shoot out of respect for Big Ang.

"Most of us have known each other way before the show started and I care for Ang very deeply, so when it comes to her health, we are putting our differences aside and fighting this fight with her," Karen Gravano tells People.

Adds new cast member Brittany Fogarty: "Ang is one of the most loving people I have ever met. She is a strong woman with a beautiful spirit, and I'm praying for her to overcome this battle."

As we previously reported, Ang underwent two surgeries to treat a lemon-sized tumor from her throat last year – only to learn that the disease has spread to her lungs and brain, and the chemotherapy isn't working.

Her sister Janine Detore has raised more than $43,500 for alternative treatments via a GoFundMe page started Feb. 2 – but there's also been a backlash on social media.

"People think because you're on television you're under protection, you're loaded. Ang, I'm not saying she's not well off, but when situations arise like this, it's very costly," Natalie DiDonato, a recurring guest in season 5, tells People, calling the negativity "crazy."

"Ang is a good person. Nobody deserves this, but she's just the life of the party, she's bubbly and she's fun and she's sweet. She's extremely successful, she's always getting booked, and she's got more energy than most 21-year-olds I know," she adds. "Her family right now is the one ones that really know what's going on, but stage 4 and then brain and lung cancer is, that's a nightmare. She's always doing charity, she's always giving back, she's always doing things for other people, and you have to almost ask yourself, 'Why me?' "
