What a touching tribute.

Mob Wives aired its final episode ever on Wednesday night, and we were delighted to see that VH1 dedicated the reunion special to Big Ang.

Angela Raiola was the breakout star of the drama-heavy docu-series and actually taped The Final Sitdown just two weeks before her tragic death back in February.

And it wasn't just for TV, it wasn't to take Instagram pictures. We just had a great friendship. … She was my only true friend on Mob Wives."
