Mural of ‘Mob Wives’ Star Big Ang Unveiled in Staten Island (PHOTOS)
This is the perfect way to honor Angela “Big Ang” Raiola.
A mural honoring the Mob Wives star was unveiled Sunday in Staten Island in proximity of The Country Mouse, a children’s boutique shop owned by her sister, Janine Detore.
The VH1 star, who died of cancer at the age of 55 just a few weeks ago, is depicted in her larger-than-life state with her face, name, and motto — “I'm not here for a long time, just for a good time.” — emblazoned on the wall.
Artwork was completed by Danielle Mastrion and Vincent Santorella.
Janine — who, along with her daughters shared photos of Big Ang’s final moments — made a speech at the ceremony unveiling the memorial, along with Drita D’Avanzo. Family, friends, and fans also attended.
Drita, one of Big Ang’s closest friends and castmates, has opened up about how the sudden passing has “devastated” her enough to make her not want to watch the show again.
