Mob Wives Cast Update: Big Ang Leaves Big Brother 2015 and Quits Smoking

Angela “Big Ang” Raiola’s recent throat surgery to remove the lemon-sized tumor slowly resulted into some setbacks. She is forced to quit this year’s “Celebrity Big Brother” and even smoking. Read on for details.

The cancer surgery definitely became a hindrance for “Mob Wives” star Big Ang to entertain “Big Brother” fans. According to The Sun, the VH1 diva had no choice but to pull out from the show because she is still in a fragile condition. She was supposedly part of the series’ US vs. UK theme. An insider revealed that the producers felt it a waste to lose Big Ang and started to search frantically for somebody to substitute her.

“She would have been a great housemate. Producers are scrambling for a replacement,” the source told The Sun.

It was also a waste for Big Ang because she was supposed to receive £250,000 for joining the cast. Although, her check was less than Janice Dickinson, who allegedly signed a £300,000 deal. Before Big Ang’s pull out, the producers must have been set already to create a new exciting season, which could beat the previous season’s highest ratings in “Big Brother” history when Perez Hilton was part of the cast. Hilton had an intense fued with Michelle Visage and Katie Hopkins that surely boosted the ratings.

In other Big Ang news, Inquisitr claimed Big Ang decided to take a huge change.  Big Ang’s family had no cancer history, so the blame for Big Ang’s condition was on her lifestyle. The reality star’s sister, Janine Detore, pointed out that Big Ang was really a chain smoker ever since. Big Ang had no choice but to “quit smoking immediately” but showed some reluctance after hearing her doctor’s order. It is not confirmed yet whether the cancer has spread to other parts of her body.

Big Ang’s net worth was revealed to reach almost $15 million. Her “mob mull” life made her popular in the reality show industry. Other than being associated with mobsters, her countless plastic surgeries earned the viewers’ attention.

An official announcement has not been made yet about “Mob Wives” Season 6’s premiere date.
