Reality star Big Ang is not dead, despite multiple reports online.
Big Ang, real name Angela Railoa, was diagnosed with throat cancer last March, and later stage IV brain and lung cancer. She is reportedly being treated at a Manhattan hospital, and a source told “Extra," “She is alive. Her family is bedside and she is fighting this.”
Her rep also set the record straight on Twitter, writing, “This is a representative of Angela’s personal social media. The news that has been reported is TOTALLY INACCURATE. Please respect her family, and their privacy at this time. All of the media outlets currently reporting this are reporting FALSE INFORMATION. No direct information has been given, and will not be given any time soon. Angela is still in the hospital surrounded by her loved ones, and is fighting. Thank you.”
