The news of Big Ang's death on Thursday was truly heartbreaking.
The reality TV star lost her battle to stage four cancer early in the morning while surrounded by family, including her recently estranged husband, Neil Murphy.
ICYMI: Angela Raiola revealed on a visit to Dr. Oz's show on Tuesday that she has left Neil after six years together, citing that "he never stepped up to the plate" during her battles with brain and lung cancer.
Well, it sounds like he finally pulled through during her last moments, as Ang's friend/costar Carla Facciolo shared with People that he "was there the whole time" and:
"He's part of her life. He's still her husband, you know? I don't know if they got back together, but to Ang, when she throws somebody off her for a little bit, they're always back in. She takes in people."
Neil also posted to Twitter following her passing, writing:
Big Ang's passing is certainly a tough one.
As we previously reported, the Mob Wives star passed away on Thursday after battling with stage four cancer. Of course, this recent news comes shortly after the VH1 celeb's reps had to clear up false reports that she had passed away Wednesday evening. So tragic!
The matriarch was beloved both on and off her hit show, so we're not shocked that her costars have since taken to Twitter and Instagram to mourn her death. In fact, her reality TV peers went above and beyond in paying tribute to the late starlet — including Teresa Giudice, Andy Cohen, and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps!

We can't even imagine what she's going through, but at least she still has her family's support.
During the episode, Ang — real name Angela Raiola — revealed that she only has a 30 percent chance of surviving.
And while that's more than enough to cause her both physical and emotional pain, the VH1 reality star also shared for the first time that her condition actually inspired her to leave her husband Neil Murphy after six years of marriage!
Neil and Ang's rocky relationship was documented on Mob Wives, Big Ang and Couples Therapy, but ultimately she felt as though "he never stepped up to the plate" in her time of need. She said:
"I'd rather be alone and that's what I did."
Thankfully, we're sure she knows what's best for her at this difficult time.
Ch-ch-check out Big Ang's revealing moment on Dr. Oz (above)!!!
Honestly, this is difficult to watch.
As fun and funny as Angela 'Big Ang' Raiola has been on Mob Wives, the 55-year-old is now consumed with something far different in her life.
The reality TV star is battling stage 4 lung and brain cancer, and while the prognosis may not be very good right now, she's at least strong enough to publicly take it on and confront the sickness.
On Tuesday's episode of Dr. Oz, she candidly discusses cancer and her reaction to it, saying:
"Sometimes I feel I'm gonna be fine, and sometimes I just don't think I am…"
See the teaser (above) for the show, which airs in syndication Tuesday.
Ugh. Our hearts break for Big Ang.
Mob Wives Star Angela 'Big Ang' Raiola Remembers To Thank Fans For Their Support Amid Her Stage Four Cancer Battle
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:
Charlie Sheen isn't afraid to speak up!
As we reported in January, the actor revealed he went off of his HIV medication in order to receive alternative treatment in Mexico from Dr. Sam Chachoua.
The "professional" — who is not licensed to practice in the U.S. — did an interview in early February where he said he "cured" Sheen of his illness.
Sound fishy? Sheen agrees!
In an interview with Dr. Oz that will premiere on Wednesday, the 50-year-old thespian SLAMS his former doctor.
Apparently, Chachoua refused to give Sheen his own samples that would be tested by Oz!
On whether the sitcom star was suspicious of this behavior, he said
Hmm.. already sounds like a scam.
Essentially, the plaintiffs are saying the product is sh*t and are seeking to get their money back plus damages.
The "magic weight-cure" contains a green coffee bean extract called Garcinia Cambogia and is sold by a company called Labrada, which made tons of money after Oz's endorsement.
The class action lawsuit says the TV personality flaunted the drug as the "magic ingredient that lets you lose weight without diet or exercise," according to TMZ.
In case you forgot, this is the same supplement the 55-year-old faced trouble with in the past — he had to testify before Senate back in 2014 to prove it was a legit method of weight loss.
During that particular case, Oz relied on a scientific study which has since been discredited.
We'll keep you updated as this progresses.
