Fans who watched the last season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation are well aware that things did not end on the best note. During that episode- which was the culmination of star Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding- fans watched as Jenni “J Woww” Farley, Deena Nicole Cortese, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi gave a speech that offended Angelina. Specifically, in the speech (which the women alluded was meant to be in good fun), a number of things were said about Angelina. These included:
- Referring to her as the “fly to their sh*t”
- Referring to her as the “Rob to our Kardashian”
- Referring to her as the “dump to their island” (which got a lot of boos from guests at the wedding due to a lot of people from Staten Island being present)
As the episode unfolded, Angelina got more and more upset by what had transpired during the speech and ended up leaving her wedding for a portion of it. She also didn’t want to speak to Deena when she approached her on the dance floor later that night, as she was still upset by the words they had used in their speech.
While it’s been a few months since the wedding- and only a few weeks since it finished airing- things have been on a quieter path in terms of drama. In fact, Angelina recently revealed in an Instagram Live that she had spoken to Deena on the phone within the last two months and things were cordial.
An insider dished more on their conversation, telling us that “Angelina’s conversation with Deena was super pleasant.”
“In the conversation, Deena spoke to Angelina’s husband, Chris,” our source continued, “and she acknowledged she was sorry if she had hurt them at the wedding.”
“The three of them talked for quite a long while,” our insider added, “and it was a very pleasant conversation. Angelina ended up leaving the call feeling like she was in a good place with Deena.”
That all changed over the past few days, though.
What Happened With The Jersey Shore Crew Now?
As has been reported in the tabloids as of yesterday, the entire Jersey Shore crew (minus Angelina) gathered to celebrate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s birthday. At the party, Deena and Nicole (who revealed after the last episode that she was quitting the show) took a jab at the speech they made for Angelina’s wedding by making a speech to Mike. Mike went on to ask his wife, Lauren Sorrentino, “I don’t know honey, should we go outside and flip out?” This was directly mocking what Angelina had said to Chris at her wedding.

Then, Deena broke her silence on Twitter.
Deena Said WHAT?!
When one fan said “Wow, I heard from somewhere that Deena got threats by Angelina’s fans that I call BS on, who would do such a thing,” Deena responded, “Nope I got threats for MONTHs from people when the one part of the wedding speech leaked.. me ..Nicole and Jenni were thrown to the wolves for MONTHS with no help from anyone.. there’s much more important things in the world going on then a wedding speech.. time to move on.”
Then, when a fan tweeted “@DeenaNicoleMTV tugging at Mike, as if she told him to say ‘Should we go outside and flip out?’ I do not understand this…” Deena responded, “for months of myself..Jenni and Nicole were getting threats and her knowing how bad it was for us she continued to play the victim and make us look terrible to people .. and after seeing the episode and seeing her true colors .. I can care less if I ever see her again in my life.”
In relation to these new tweets, our source revealed to us that “Angelina was really thrown for a curveball again. She had issues in the past where she not only got death threats, but also was physically attacked, and she’s not the type of person who would ever wish this on another human being nor does she condone kids being threatened. So, not only did she not understand why they would make fun of her regarding the speech- something that all her cast members know upset her- but she’s even more confused by Deena’s tweet saying she could care less if she ever sees her again in her life.”
“Seeing as they had a great phone call about two months ago,” our insider continued, “Angelina doesn’t understand why suddenly Deena is mad at her and saying mean things about her. Is someone putting Deena up to this? It’s very bizarre.”
Our source added that “It’s almost like they are hoping that by banding together against Angelina- coupled with Nicole claiming she won’t film anymore- they are hoping that Angelina will quit and then they can all go on taping the show without her.”
So could that actually come to fruition?
Is Angelina Actually Quitting?
“Angelina is a tough girl,” our Jersey Shore insider told us, “and she is not afraid of any of the people on the cast. She 100% is not quitting, so if that’s there intention- to scare or bully her into quitting- it’s not going to work.”
“Angelina had no problems anymore with Deena,” our source wrapped with stating, “but it seems Deena wants to spark drama with her again. Angelina is never one to back down from a fight- especially when she knows she’s right- so if Deena wants to spark something, she better be ready for the fire.”
