The tragic death of Big Ang has left fans of ‘Mob Wives’ completely heartbroken, including one of the show’s stars, Drita D’Avanzo. Drita is so devastated by the loss of her friend, she says she can’t even watch the show anymore. Click to see her sad message.
Fans of Big Ang are binge-watching Mob Wives in tribute to the show’s star. However, Drita D’Avanzo, 40, says she can’t bring herself to turn on the television because the sight of her late friend would be too painful to bear!
Drita said on Feb. 24 that she was still grieving Ang’s death from stage 4 cancer on Feb. 18 that she couldn’t bring herself to view that night’s episode. “I wasn’t up to watching the show tonight,” Drita tweeted, apologizing to her fans that she didn’t live tweet. It was, as Drita said, “too soon.”
Despite her heartache, Drita managed to retweet positive messages that celebrated Big Ang’s life. She also remembered her late costar on social media, according to US Weekly. Drita posted a sweet picture of Big Ang, captioning it “I will see you again one day my friend… I will miss every minute of u until then. I love you.”
Drita was at the hospital with Big Ang and “about 60 people” when Ang passed away on Feb. 18, a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. If there was any lingering drama between Big Ang, Drita or any of the other Mob Wives stars, they all “drop[ped] their differences to remember Big Ang,” the source said.
The drama didn’t stay dropped for long. During Ang’s wake, her family was “furious how Drita came in with bodyguards escorting her,” a source EXCLUSIVELY told HollywoodLife.com. Drita’s entrance “made a scene” and since none of the other girls brought an entourage, the family thought she was “trying to steal the spotlight and make it all about her.” However, a rep for Drita told HollywoodLife.com that Drita didn’t have bodyguards and the security was “hired for the fans who attended the services.”
Drita’s social media tribute was one of many made after Ang’s death. Carla Facciolo shared a photo of her with Ang, saying that her “memories will last forever. RIPmyAngel.” Renee Graziano said that the world “is already missing [Ang]” and her “wonderful kind spirit.” It seems that the loss of Big Ang is too much for Drita to get over just yet.
Do you think Drita will be able to watch Mob Wives ever again, HollywoodLifers?
