In the story of the two jerseyshore and Jersey Shore: Family Vacationthere’s never been a more uncomfortable moment than dinner when Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Angelina Pivarnick came to blows over an unresolved issue.
The ‘Jersey Shore’ drama before Sunday dinner
Drama ensued for the cast before a dinner party held while on vacation in Point Pleasant, New Jersey.
These included Farley, Pivarnick, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Cortese and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi.
The conflict arose after Farley’s boyfriend, Zach Carpinello, touched Pivarnick inappropriately during a night out with the housemates. Farley was drunk at the time of filming.
The women took different positions: Pivarnick proclaimed his innocence while Farley stood by Carpinello.
However, the situation quickly escalated beyond the initial conflict, creating one of the worst Sunday dinner parties in the series’ history.
Jenni and Angelina had a scary fight over dinner
As the cast gathered around a table laden with food, the conflict between Farley and Pivarnick began.
Everything seemed to be fine until Guadagnino noticed what he thought was a piercing under Pivarnick’s shirt.
Angelina said she had a piercing but refused to show it, prompting Jenni to accuse her of lying.
“How much do you commit to a lie? she asserted. “I would be the same if I felt guilty.”
The conversation quickly moved to the night with Carpinello as Pivarnick insisted she never tried to kiss him.
“I’ve been with him for six months and he’s never disrespected me,” Farley said.
She then told Pivarnick, “You, on the other hand, have been the f****** plague of 10 years.”
When Pivarnick claimed that Farley was “trying to get dirty”, Farley slammed his hands on the table, claiming that Pivarnick had failed in his divorce from Roger Mathews.
“You lied about me trying to kiss your boyfriend because you want to deviate,” Pivarnick shouted, again stating that Carpinello touched her inappropriately.
Things between the women got physical when Farley tried to shove Pivarnick’s finger away. Farley then picked up a bottle of wine and threatened Pivarnick with it.
Jenni Farley changed her mind once the Sunday dinner episode ‘Jersey Shore’ aired
After the episode aired where Farley saw for herself Carpinello’s actions towards Pivarnick, she posted a instagram statement claiming she felt “disrespected” by both Pivarnick and Carpinello.
“I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and someone who said they love me,” she wrote.
“For five months I was kept in the dark about this. For five months I was naive, probably laughed at myself and made a scenario out of it that will haunt me forever. My my heart hurts on so many levels,” Farley continued. “One thing I learned from tonight’s episode is to know your worth. Never lower your standards.
Pivarnick and Farley later reconciled, as did Farley and Carpinello. The couple got engaged in February 2021.
