The 43-year-old reality TV scarlet explained that Big Ang was more than just a co-worker. “I've known Ang since I was a kid, I was 13, our relationship was much deeper than just a television show.”

Although Mob Wives will not be returning for another season, Karen insisted that if they were to continue the series, Angela would have never be replaced. “There will always be that void,” she explained. “I think we would have added new Mob Wives like we did every season but her personality is irreplaceable.”
