UPDATE: Vinnie Medugno Says He Is NOT Profiting Off Big Ang's Death

 Vinnie Responds To Backlash

Vinnie Medugno,  who said to be Big Ang's publicist is to backlash from her fans that he allegedly using Big Ang' name to make money off her death. Last Friday, Big Ang's sister Janine posted on twitter that he blocked her from Big Ang's Instagram page an the two of them went back & forth on twitter. Janine claims that he is using her sister for 'fame' 

Vinnie made a long  blog post explaining the whole ordeal from how he knew her and the drama thats' been happening since she her death in February. 

Here is part of his post

 "This passed Friday when that occurred, I was advised to remove Janine from the social media and block her from the accounts because it was not the first time she had posted something negative or offensive against the estate on social media. So in my opinion, she attacked the wrong person. Not that anyone should be attacked, but she should’ve gotten the facts straight. I was working at my school when all of this went down, and had no clue what was even going on, but had to follow orders from the executors of Angela’s estate. Her daughter Raquel does want specific items and words posted, and when she does, I have to post verbatim and with the photos she sends, all pre-approved of course. They too have the passwords and are always on it. No one excluded Janine but Janine."

Karen and Btrittany Respond To Being Banned From Big Ang's Memorial

Karen and Brittany Respond To Being Banned

Karen Gravano and Brittany Forgarty is fnally responding to reports from being banned from Big Ang's memorial over the weekend. Both were not invited due to both their father's history. Karen responded by saying ths situation was never about her father and was about respecting her friend.  

 "My situation isn’t about my father, it isn’t about anyone else. It’s about paying respects to my friend. I wanted to say my goodbyes to Ang and pay respect to her and her family and an army couldn’t stop me. I was just happy to be there. Let people believe what they want to believe. I was there and I walked out holding her casket.”

Brittany, who received a phone call  Renee's sister, says she was crying hysterically when she found out she was banned 

 "I think that it’s unfortunate that I couldn’t be at any of Ang’s services this weekend, and that I couldn’t say bye to her in that way. The last thing that I would want is to go there and cause a scene. This is about celebrating Ang’s life and the fact that her family has to say bye to such a beautiful person, and I want to respect that. I was called on Saturday, by a mutual friend, and told not to attend the services because of something my father did. I was in my car heading over and pulled over and started hysterically crying. I was already upset because I was headed to her services, but pulled over and cried hysterically when I found out I couldn’t go. I was really taken aback when I received the call; I was not expecting it at all. Ang never judged me for the actions of my father."
