So Scary And Poignant — Big Ang Opens Up About Her Stage Four Brain & Lung Cancer On Dr. Oz

Filed under: TV NewsPerezTVHealthCancerDr. OzScary!Reality TV

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.

Filed under: DrugsSad SadHealthCharityMedicineCancerSickReality TV

Oh no!

UPDATE THURSDAY 8:46 PM EST: Big Ang's family has already reached their fundraising goal! In only two days, the campaign raised far more than the $25,000 target!

According to the crowdfunding site, hundreds of generous donors gifted $36,941 for the lovely lady's treatment!


This is such sad news.

Last year, we learned that Big Ang's cancer has returned. And now, we're getting more bad news about her current treatment.

On Tuesday, the Mob Wives star's sister, Janine Detore, revealed that she has not been responding to her chemotherapy.

The VH1 alum's sibling created a GoFundMe page, discussing her current condition, writing:

"As you know my sister was diagnosed with stage 4 brain and lung cancer. Chemotherapy was started January 5 th. On January 26th the doctor reviewed her CT scan and informed us that the treatment was not working, and in fact one tumor grew larger and the other tumors had no change. We were advised that she would start immunotherapy the following week."

Oh no.

While she mentioned Ang isn't on the brink of death, she did say that the TV personality is really struggling with her breathing, and is in an incredible amount of pain.

So, the bar owner's sister suggested cannabis oil to reduce the pain. Unfortunately, the product is pretty pricey, which is why the famous family turned to crowdfunding. Janine wrote:

simon cowell smoking quit health lung cancer scary

All you celebs out there that bum us out whenever we see you guys smoking: if Simon Cowell can quit, you can too!

Seriously, if there was one person we thought was too stubborn to quit smoking, we would have guessed Simon! On the flip side, he's so worried about his health and body that it'd be crazy for him to continue!

And guess what?

Boo! Arnold Schwarzenegger Seen Puffing On A Cigar!

ahnold(1)

We remember a time when Arnold Schwarzenegger was all about his body.

Dude had the biggest muscles on the planet, and they looked GOOD!

But Arnie seems to not care about his body or his health these days - if he did, he wouldn't be smoking no cigar!!!

Which is exactly what he was spotted doing in Beverly Hills yesterday.

If he seriously wants to keep his new girl around, he'll drop the disgusting habit.

No one likes stinky smoke breath!!

Check out more pictures of Arnie doing the nasty down (below) !!!

Sylvester Stallone Smiles At Expendables 2 Premiere Despite His Personal Pain

There's no doubt about it: Sylvester Stallone is having a terrible summer.

Following the untimely death of his son, Sage, the action star's 48-year-old half-sister was admitted to the hospital two weeks ago as her lung and liver cancer conditions worsened.

But despite Toni Ann Filiti's deteriorating health, Stallone put on the happiest face he could find to attend the Paris premiere of The Expendables 2.

Still, it's pretty obvious that there is still a huge hole in his heart just by looking at his face in these pics. His suit may match his pal Arnold Schwarzenegger's, but his enthusiasm sure doesn't.

Aww! We can't imagine how hard it is to attend these events while in mourning and hoping against all hope that he doesn't lose another family member.

We respect the effort though and wish his family the best — especially Toni!

Filed under: Sad SadHealthFamily

This guy cannot get a break.

Sylvester Stallone is dealing with more personal tragedy as his half sister Toni is in critical condition at the UCLA hospital.

Toni had been living with her mom dealing with lung cancer, but sources say her condition has gotten considerably worse.

Here's what Sly & Toni's mom said:

"Toni Ann is not doing well at all. She has lung cancer Stage 4, she has liver cancer, it has spread to her brain."

That's so sad!

We hope Sly is able to overcome this incredibly traumatic period in his life, and keep fighting through.

Come on, Rocky - we believe in ya.
