Despite the fact that his marriage to Big Ang was on the rocks at the time of her death, estranged husband Neil Murphy was beside himself with grief at the reality star’s wake. Click through to watch footage of his emotional moment.
Neil Murphy was beyond distraught at Big Ang‘s wake on Sunday, February 21, sobbing as he remembered his estranged wife after her tragic death from brain and lung cancer. Neil stood outside Scarpaci Funeral Home in Brooklyn, trying to hold back tears, but he just couldn’t do it. Poor Neil! Click through to watch what happened.
We just can’t imagine what Neil must be going through right now. While attending Mob Wives star Big Ang’s wake, Neil was spotted on the porch with the rest of the guests, looking absolutely miserable. His face screwed up, crying, Neil wiped away his tears and held his face in his hands. He managed to regain his composure and lit up a cigarette as a friend straightened his tie and made him button up his suit jacket to look more presentable.
Although Neil and Ang had major relationship troubles, he was by her side in the final moments as she battled terminal brain and lung cancer. The former couple appeared on Couples Therapy and Celebrity Wife Swap together, and Ang allegedly dumped Neil for being unsupportive as she battled cancer, according to TMZ.
But it was clear as she entered those last stages of life that he really loved her. After her passing on February 18, he tweeted “I will always love you forever please watch over the grandkids I know you will.” So, so sad. Ang’s wake on February 20, the previous evening, was a bit more lighthearted than the one that Neil attended. Per Ang’s wishes, the wake was disco-themed, a way for her loved ones to celebrate her life in an over-the-top way, just as she lived! The wake was beautiful, but not without drama, according to her Mob Wives costars!
