Gym, tan, wedding shower! The cast of Jersey Shore came together to celebrate the upcoming wedding of star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and his fiancée Lauren Pesce. The event took place at the Osteria Cucina Rustica restaurant in Marlboro, NJ on Saturday, Sept. 29, and it marked the first time since Mike’s co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley made a public appearance since she filed for divorce from her husband Roger Mathews.
The guest list for Mike and Lauren’s bridal shower lunch included JWoww, JWoww’s four-year-old daughter Meilani Mathews, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Snooki’s four-year-old daughter Giovanna LaValle, Angelina Pivarnick and her fiancé Chris Larangeira, and Vinny Guadagnino.
Snooki took to Instagram to share a photo of the group in front of a flower wall and she simply captioned the shot, “#TheHitchuation.” Both Snooki, 30, and JWoww, 32, shared adorable photos and videos of their mini-me daughters playing and having fun at the party.
JWoww’s estranged husband Roger was not in attendance at the event in the midst of their split. According to documents obtained by local newspaper Asbury Park Press, JWoww filed for divorce from Roger on Sept. 12 in Superior Court in Ocean County and cited irreconcilable differences. The couple tied the knot in 2015 after about five years of dating, and they share Meilani and two-year-old son Greyson together.
Shortly after reports about their divorce surfaced, Roger took to Instagram to share a video message to fans where he confirmed the news and he vowed that he would do everything he can to try to save his marriage.
“I’m gonna win my wife back, I’m gonna win her affection back, I’m gonna win her love back,” Roger said in the clip. “I have no intention of being a single dad. We’re in counseling, so there’s hope. It ain’t over til the fat lady sings.”
