Brooklyn could not handle the sheer amount of people who came out to celebrate the life, and their love for Ang. The block was completely cordoned off by police cars, with people filling the street for the Mob Wives star’s funeral procession, HollywoodLife.com can tell you EXCLUSIVELY.
The funeral was star-studded, with celebrities like Montell Williams, former Mob Wives star Natalie Guercio, Scott Stapp of Creed, and supermodel Carmen Carrera, who costarred with Big Ang and estranged husband Neil Murphy on Couples Therapy. But the people who mattered the most were Ang’s family members, who took up most of the church. She was a beloved woman, and it showed!
Neil, and Ang’s son, AJ Donofrio, were obviously very emotional during the funeral, crying as they followed her casket out of the church. In a surprising, but beautiful moment, Ang’s costars, including Carla Facciolo, Renee Graziano and Drita D’avanzo served as her pallbearers, along with Ang’s sister, who walked in front. Drita hysterically sobbed as she carried the casket; you could barely recognize her as she walked out of the church with her hair covered under a flat cap, without a stitch of makeup on her face; all the other women wore long fur coats.
At the front of the church, a big display of roses formed the shape of a pair of huge red lips. Yes — this was a Big Ang affair. May she rest in peace. HollywoodLifers, our thoughts are with Big Ang’s loved ones during this trying time.
