Speedy recovery, Big Ang! Yesterday reports flooded the media that “Mob Wives” star, Big Ang (Angela Raiola), 51, was hospitalized for a large tumor in her throat. Raiola’s reported mass is as large as the size of a lemon. Big Ang took to her Facebook to confirm the report and share information with her fans. At this time, it is unknown if the tumor is cancerous. Big Ang posted the following photo and message on her Facebook page yesterday:
“Hi my babies! I am finally able to take a moment to speak to you all. First off, my apologies that you had to find out about my condition from every other outlet but me. This was never my intent, but unfortunately it got out there. Secondly, I want to clarify the rumors that I am hospitalized. I went in for a test due to the nodule in my throat. I had a nerve wracking couple of days, as would anyone when you hear testing etc… However, I am home peaceful and relaxing. This coming week I will be taking proper precautions and having it removed. I do want to say that you have all been on my mind every step of the way and I am so thankful to each and every one of you for the love, support, prayers and most of all positive wishes. Big Ang isn’t going anywhere! This is a minor setback, but I promise you this… I already have some BIG things in the world and will be returning to your TVs very soon. Always look after yourselves and don’t neglect your health. I’m fortunate and blessed to have discovered something very early, and handle it in a positive manner. I thank you and I love you all from the bottom of my heart. Stay posted in the coming days, I will give you all updates. xoxoxox”
Big Ang is longtime smoker who has said (many times) she tried to kick the habit, however, it’s unclear if smoking is the culprit to her recent diagnosis.
When it rains, it pours! As reported, Big Ang’s Staten Island bar, ‘Drunken Monkey Bar and Grill’ was shut down last month by the State Liquor Authority because of Big Ang’s felonious past.
An investigation uncovered that Big Ang, a convicted felon, was the bar’s silent owner, which is illegal in the State of New York.
