The ladies who fight together, stick together.
Despite all the MAJOR drama and bad blood between the Mob Wives, the cast recently made it clear that they're VERY supportive of Big Ang and her battle against stage four throat cancer. The ladies spoke out after a contentious reunion taping earlier this week.
According to the reality stars, they kept 5 hours of the taping peaceful out of respect for Ang. The big personality then left the studio to rest a home.
Renee Graziano said of B.A.'s attitude that day:
"Her spirits were up. She was looking fantastic and keeping positive."
How wonderful. We're glad to hear the grandmother hasn't lost her upbeat demeanor.
Karen Gravano added:
"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."
Aww! So sweet.
Not only are the women supporting New York native during her time of need, they're also fighting back against her haters who claim the beauty shouldn't have started a Go Fund Me for cancer treatment:
"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. 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. 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?'"
Summed up perfectly — Big Ang deserves the best whether she's on TV or not!
Stay strong, Ang!

Valentine's Day has always been a special day for Joey and Rory Feek.
In his newest blog post, Rory revealed that his first date ever with his now-ailing wife took place back in 2002 on Valentine's Day when he attended a work event with his country-singing love. Two months later the pair were engaged.
But things will be celebrated differently this year as Joey battles terminal cancer under hospice care.
With February 14 just days away, the Grammy Awards on Monday, and their daughter Indiana turning two on Wednesday — there is a lot going on in the Feek household.
"What I really want to do on this, our 14th Valentine's together, is share a romantic candle-lit dinner with my bride: grill out rib-eyes on the campfire back home, pour two glasses of red wine and sit across from her at our kitchen table – just like we've done on more than one special occasion. But those things aren't able to happen this year. Neither Joey, nor I, have laid eyes on our farmhouse back in Tennessee since the middle of October. On top of that, Joey's illness hasn't allowed her to be able to eat much of anything for some time now and she sleeps most of the days and nights away."
Instead he offered how the family will spending the holiday:
"So my hope this year instead is to hold her hand and take her on a ‘virtual' walk down memory lane together… with pictures and videos on my laptop. I want to take her back to where our lives first began together, and relive this beautiful journey that God has taken us on… from that first song she heard me sing at the Bluebird cafe, to the last one we sang together as we stood on stage and took our final bow… to the songs that she will leave behind here on earth and the ones she will soon sing for eternity to our sweet Lord in that heavenly choir up yonder. A trip down memory lane together… That, and I'm hoping for a few soft kisses. The passion for each other that Joey and I once had has been replaced by the sweetest, gentlest kisses. I live for those kisses. They are enough."
Wow. All the feels!!

Get your tissue boxes ready.
On Wednesday, Angela "Big Ang" Raiola took to Twitter to thank her fans for their love and support following the recent news that she'd been hospitalized due to complications surrounding her stage four brain and lung cancer.
While live commenting on the latest episode of her VH1 show Mob Wives, the reality TV star posted:
The 44-year-old announced the exciting news along with a cartoon drawing of a fetus via Twitter:
Aww! Our hearts continue to go out to Vanessa Hudgens.
It was less than two weeks ago that the 27-year-old announced the passing of her father, Greg, from stage four cancer just one night before her performance of Grease: Live.
Well, as you'd imagine, she's still feeling his loss.
