Mob Wives star Big Ang, who died at age 55 on Thursday, February 18, visited Us Weekly‘s NYC headquarters frequently, and one of her finest moments in the studios was back in February 2012, when she re-enacted our favorite quotes from Downton Abbey.
The throwback clip shows the Staten Island maven delivering dramatic interpretations of dialogue from the British period drama. “I’m gonna re-enact Downton Abbey,” the late star says as she launches into her performance.
“I’m a woman, Mary,” Ang hilariously says with her arms crossed. “I can be as contrary as I choose.”
The VH1 reality star also puts her spin on a trademark zing from the Dowager Countess (Maggie Smith). “We can’t have him assassinated,” Ang remarks, rolling her eyes, “I suppose.”
Big Ang smirks and laughs to herself when she quotes: “No one wants to kiss a girl in black.”
Sadly, the reality personality (née Angela Raiola) passed away in the early hours of Thursday after battling stage IV lung and brain cancer. “She was surrounded by nothing but love from her immediate family, and closest friends,” her close friend Vinnie Medugno wrote on her Twitter account. “YOU, (Her fans) were some of the most special people in the world, and she loved you immensely.”
Other reality stars, including Jersey Shore stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, all mourned Big Ang.
Watch her shine in the #TBT videos above.
