A private funeral service was held for the reality TV star in Brooklyn on Monday, and among those in attendance were her estranged husband Neil Murphy and many of her "Mob Wives" costars, including Karen Gravano.

The controversy came, however, before the service when Gravano and fellow costar Brittany Fogarty were asked not to attend. Though neither woman appeared at her visitation services, Gravano was photographed at Monday's funeral. Fogarty was nowhere to be seen, though, and a source told E! News that she cried her eyes out when she was asked not to attend.
