With her husky voice and "wise guys" attitude, Angela "Big Ang" Raiola is always the life of the party on Mob Wives. Now, she's fighting for her own life after being hospitalized for stage 4 cancer.
A smoker for more than 40 years, the former owner of Staten Island's Drunken Monkey bar underwent two surgeries to remove a lemon-sized tumor from her throat last year. But last week, her sister revealed the reality star is now battling brain and lung cancer, and because chemotherapy isn't working, she set up a GoFundMe to raise money for alternative treatments. (The page surpassed its $25,000 goal in two days.)
Still, Raiola rallied to film about half of the series' 10-hour reunion special shoot Friday – and her costars were amazed by her strength.

Charlie Sheen is renouncing a man who claimed to have cured his HIV and injected himself with the actor's blood.
During his Wednesday appearance on The Dr. Oz Show, Sheen denied Dr. Sam Chachoua's account of treating him in a Mexico hotel room with a medically contested treatment involving goat milk.
"He would have stuff delivered at all hours of the night, and I was an idiot to keep taking it. It was just the BS started to really pile up with this guy. I was in Mexico probably for 32 hours. He says I was there for two months, so his math skills are equally as challenged as his science," said Sheen, 50. "I don't think I was dying. It's very bizarre, his memory of our initial time together. ... I couldn't keep track of this guy. He didn't really have an office I could go to."

The drama on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills is spilling off-screen.
Lisa Rinna and Yolanda Foster had a heated Twitter exchange Wednesday over questions about the former model's children's Lyme disease.
The she-said, she-said trouble began earlier this season when Foster revealed her son Anwar and daughter Bella Hadid are also suffering from chronic Lyme. Asked by Kyle Richards about the shocking news, Lisa Vanderpump said their father Mohamed Hadid – her close friend and Foster's ex-husband – had never mentioned anything. (She later apologized for getting involved in a Bravo blog post.) New Housewife Erika Girardi told Foster that Richards and Vanderpump cast doubt on her kids' diagnosis, and after Rinna went to Foster's home to apologize for repeating a separate accusation about Munchausen syndrome, Foster confronted Vanderpump and Richards, saying Rinna told her about their alleged betrayal and brandishing the kids' medical records as proof of their illness.
