This news is not 100% confirmed to me. And I hope I am wrong, but my sources are telling me Big Ang has died. I’m sorry I don’t have anything else to add. I just need a moment.
UPDATE: I received several tips from sources I have never used before about Big Ang’s death. I did NOT want to believe them. But as I investigated the sources and the rumors, I was convinced. Now Entertainment Tonight has confirmed as well and there are still people saying she has not passed. I’ve seen enough evidence to believe it. I wish like anything that I am wrong and calling this to soon, but I’ve checked the sources and sadly, they seem legit. I’m broken hearted.
UPDATE 2: It’s taken me all day to get on line and read the comments here. I woke up this morning incredibly sad. I think this just hit so hard because we just got to hear from her on Dr. OZ this week, That was one of the most difficult posts I’ve ever had to make.
Around 9 last night I was contacted by multiple sources informing me that Big Ang had died. I really felt like it was someone just making up a story based on the Dr, Oz show. I could not fathom that she would pass so quickly. Monty Brinson dies of lung cancer and it went on for a very long time. Lung cancer is very nasty and there is usually a lot of suffering a the end. My sources last night didn’t give details and I was too devastated to ask and frankly did not want to know.
This morning I received more details that I have not really wanted to report. I was told that yesterday afternoon Ang was pronounced brain dead. She was left on life support so that everyone could come and pay their respects and she was given last rites. Later that evening, the decision was made to remove her from life support. There were several people who opted not to be present for that part. When those people left around nine, they told people Big Ang was gone. That is when sources began to contact media outlets and me. The statements that “she was still fighting” were rather erroneous, there was no brain activity at that time. Often times family struggles with brain death. The person is breathing via a machine, their heart is still pumping, you don’t want to believe it is over. She was finally removed from the machines about twelve hours later at three a.m.
I am hearing that there is a lot of feuding going on, someone called media outlets and emailed media outlets shortly have some of the family left at nine. Those people went home and told their friends and family the sad news. Supposedly, Big Ang’s family is upset with Neil and his family who they blame for the leak of Big Ang’s death. I seriously doubt there was any ill will involved in the news getting out when it did. What I think is despicable is that I have heard there are photos of her on her deathbed that were sold. I am not adding another photo to this post as I normally would because I’m going to do everything I can to avoid seeing that. My brain is already formulating images that I would like to get out of my head.
I’m sorry I didn’t come to the post and reseat people in the window licking section. I just don’t have it in me today. I’m sure I’ll make a post or do a recap soon. But I just need to take some time. And frankly if you don’t believe this information or want to argue with me, I’m not in the mood today. Just take it somewhere else.
