A source said that, while the VH1 alums didn't always get along, they all had a lot of love for the fierce female:
"Ang was like a mom and protector to these women. They loved her like a mom."
The insider added that the reality stars are devastated to lose her:
"They're all brokenhearted. No one expected it to happen this quickly. Some of the cast was at the hospital last night when she passed. Drita [D'Avanzo] was there."
Well, we're glad that Ang passed surrounded by people who loved and cared for her. Our hearts are with everyone affected during this tough time.
