This is definitely a reason to watch.
I haven't been keeping up with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation this season because I've fallen behind and there are so many episodes to catch up on, however, this latest GTL drama is too juicy to ignore. In case you're like me and haven't been checking in on everyone's favorite Guidos, let me catch you up.
On Thursday's episode, Jenni "JWOWW" Farley's 24-year-old boyfriend Zack Carpinello got way too handsy with Angelina Pivarnick while Jenni was literally passed out drunk in his lap. 24 was seen grabbing the Staten Island Dump's waist and butt (on camera) and pulled her close in the elevator on the way up to the room, while JWOWW was in his other arm. 24 was clearly beyond friendly.
According to the mid-season trailer for the rest of the season, Angelina tells the group about Zack's handsy ways and JWOWW accuses her of lying in an epic feud. Jenni only found out that her boyfriend was lying to her about touching Angelina when she tuned in to last week's episode and saying him doing exactly what Angelina accused him of.
Following the episode, JWOWW took to Instagram saying "I’m pretty hurt. I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me” and reminded everyone she was kept in the dark about this for five months.
So, she's mad at her boyfriend for touching another woman and pissed at Angelina for letting it happen to create a storyline out of it. The Dirty Little Hamster knows how to make drama out of anything to stay on TV.
24 also released his own statement apologizing for embarrassing Jenni, taking responsibility for his actions and vowing to continue to make his love for JWOWW known. Ugh, so now he wants to take responsibility after lying for five months and humiliating her in front of the world? The only reason 24 wants to stay around is to gain a few more Instagram followers...
According to Us Weekly, Jenni broke up with 24 after the episode aired, however, two days later Us Weekly also reported that JWOWW and her ex-boyfriend were spotted having a night out with her children and Jenni's father at Field Station: Dinosaurs theme park in Jersey.
Um? Why is he coming around her kids AND her dad after they just broke up? Someone make this make sense. An eye witness told the outlet about their family night out saying:
“They weren’t lovey dovey or touchy. They were more civil than acting like a couple, but he was affectionate and sweet with the kids. They made s’mores. … No romance, just two people watching kids enjoy the festivities! The whole family looked happy. The kids were having a great time during the music shows and enjoying playing the games. Jenny and Zack weren’t showing any PDA, they were playing with the kids but didn’t seem overly affectionate. Jenny was spending most of her time watching the kids.”
Days after the episode aired, Angelina also took to Instagram in a sexy post with a cryptic message which was definitely addressing the messy situation. She also turned her comments off on the post, so it's safe to say she is getting it hard on social media.
Oh, and in case you care, Jenni's ex-husband Roger Mathews also added his two cents to the situation, exclusively telling Us Weekly:
“I want peace with my ex-wife for my kids and if there is turmoil in her life and in her household, it’s just not a good thing for our children, so I wish nothing but the best for her. I wish them all well and I hope Jenni and Zack can work through their issues if they deem it worth saving. I’m focused on myself and my children. Onwards and upwards.”
Really Roger? Really? Roger needs to stay in his corner and shut the fuck up.
This is great press for the rest of the season, which airs Thursdays at 8 PM on MTV.
