Mob Wives star Angela “Big Ang” Raiola revealed on Tuesday during her interview on The Dr. Oz Show that she left her husband, Neil Murphy. Big Ang is battling stage 4 brain and lung cancer and had these things to say about Murphy:

“I felt like he never stepped up to the plate, so I was done with it,” she told Dr. Oz. “Now, it’s too late. I would rather be by myself. I would rather be alone.”

Murphy and Raiola have a complicated history. During a July 2012 episode of her show Big Ang, Murphy — who was estranged from, but still married to Raiola at the time — proposed to heragain.The couple reconciled and has since appeared on several reality shows together including Celebrity Wife Swap.

In December, ET confirmed that Raiola’s throat cancer had returned. She was first diagnosed with a lemon-sized tumor in her throat in March 2015. A week later, she underwent surgery to remove the tumor and all the lymph nodes on the left side of her throat, and then in June, she underwent the same surgery on the right side of her throat. source:
