When it comes to Jersey Shore rivalries, fuggedaboutit, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Angelina Pivarnick take the cake — or should we say they take the shot of Smirnoff? Angelina and Jenni have gotten into so many fights on Jersey Shore throughout the years — including what we saw on tonight’s new episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation — that honestly, it’s hard to remember why exactly they don’t like each other. So, with that, we decided to do a little deep diving back to the very beginning to see what sparked their dumpster fire of a guidette faux-friendship.
When the “Kim Kardashian of Staten Island” first entered the shore house Season 1, she immediately made waves. It wasn’t just Jenni who didn’t like Angelina — all the roomies hated her! She was obnoxious in a way that even bothered Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi at the time… which is really saying something, y’all. Angelina left the show after a mere three episodes and TBH, fans really did think they saw the last of her.
Fast forward to Season 2 and that’s where her beef with Jenni really began. For some ungodly reason, Ang thought it was a good idea to live in a household of people who despised her. Er, then again, maybe MTV thought it was a good idea — but that’s neither here nor there. During Episode 2 titled “The Hangover,” the roomies already wanted Ang gone, especially Jen.
“If you want to get your a– beat, you can get your a– beat! You can stay and get your a– beat! You can stay and get your f—–g ass beat! You can stay and get your f—–g a– beat!” was the infamous (and repetitive) speech JWoww gave to Angelina and seven episodes later, she ditched yet another season of Jersey Shore.
Once again, fans thought they were done with everyone’s least favorite “Dirty Little Hamster” but alas, here we are. While Ang did it make a point to smack talk JWoww and all the other roomies on numerous occasions during her Jersey Shore hiatus, it wasn’t until May 2018 that some s–t really hit the fan.
Literally, a day before Angelina made her cameo on Season 1 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, she took to Instagram (in a since-deleted post) and shared a photo of a “Jersey Whore” mug directed at JWoww. “Tomorrow is my return on [Jersey Shore]!” Can’t wait for all [of] you to see,” she wrote. “I will be sipping my tea out of my amazing cup [that] I dedicate to [JWoww].” Angelina then added the hashtags “I’m back,” “keep hatin’,” and the kicker: “Jealousy is a disease.” Naturally, JWoww clapped back:
The most confusing aspect of this confrontation is that fans later came to see Angelina and JWoww seemingly squash their beef on TV and yet, in real life, Angelina was stirring the pot again. Which leads us to modern day, ladies and guidos. While Jenni and Ang didn’t get into too much drama tonight — well for them, anyway — we have no doubt that given their history, things are sure to blow up next week. After all, did you see those previews?!
Be sure to catch Season 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation on MTV Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET.
