Big Ang and Neil Murphy have been married for six years, but are now filing for divorce.

The 55-year-old Mob Wives star revealed on this week’s Dr. Oz Show that she “felt he never stepped up to the plate.” Her exact words were: “I feel now it’s too late, bye, I rather be by myself.” To this, the audience began to applaud. She went on: “I been taking care of everything since I been married to him. I don’t need it. So, I rather be alone. And that’s what I did.”

Big Ang’s real name is Angela Raiola. She went under 2 surgeries last year to remove tumors from her throat and wore a silk scarf during this interview. Big Ang is now cancer-free even though doctors at the time only gave her a 30% survival rate. Doctors are now working to improve her immune system.

“Sometimes I feel like I’m gonna be fine, and sometimes I just don’t think I am,” she told Dr. Oz.

The rest of Big Ang’s family has been supporting her, starting a GoFundMe page to help her doctor’s fees. She has already surpassed her goal.

“If it wasn’t for them, how would I get through this?” said Big Ang.

Murphy hasn’t publicly addressed the split. But he did share a photo of his grandchild saying, “Me and my baby only thing making me smile these days want to tell everyone thanks for all the love.
