Last night's premiere of Mob Wives Season Six brought its usual share of drama and flair, but a fair amount of the attention took place behind the cameras, and focused on the latest Big Ang cancer update. Angela Raiola's cancer returned late last month, and many of her and her show's fans were left wondering what kind of role her ongoing treatments would play in Mob Wives' final season. Several sources indicated that the plan had originally been to end the show "on a high note–with the news that [Big Ang] had beaten throat cancer." The latest Big Ang cancer update, though, has thrown a monkey wrench into those plans.
We have some very disheartening news for fans of Mob Wives as Angela "Big Ang" Raiola's cancer has reportedly returned. The charismatic reality star had two surgeries earlier this year after doctors discovered a "lemon sized tumor" on her neck that turned out to cancerous.

Leave it to Brooks Ayers to finally admit he was lying, but only because he felt that he had to so people wouldn't think he was lying. In the latest chapter of the notorious Bravolebrity's #Cancergate scandal, Brooks admits he forged the obviously forged medical records he presented as proof that he does have cancer, but explains that he had to because he "never intended to disclose [his] actual medical records or details about [his] private and personal medical history." Keep reading for his full statement, which reveals he does regret fabricating the medical records before ending with one of his usual aphorisms putting a positive spin on making huge mistakes.
