Hundreds Turn Out For Big Ang’s Funeral

Mob Wives stars and family pay their last respects to Big Ang.

Hundreds of mourners gathered in Brooklyn yesterday for the funeral of Angela “Big Ang” Raiola, including Renee Graziano, Drita D’Avanzo, Carla Facciolo and Karen Gravano. Though it had been reported that Gravano was not invited to attend, the New York Times reports that she “slipped into the church without incident.” Only at a Big Ang funeral would you see mourners celebrating the life of the departed wearing leather pants and leopard prints; the sheer number of people who turned out to honor her was a testament to how beloved she was, their attire was a testament to how much her joyous spirit had touched them all.
