Ironically, Farley had not met any of the Floribama Shore roommates before filming the reunion special. “That was my first time meeting them all and man, do I love them,” she admitted to Showbiz. 

“I never really thought I would say that, but they are us 12 years ago just trying to find their way,” the Reality Royalty recipient added. Like Jersey ShoreFloribama Shore put eight strangers in a house together for the summer. And like the cast of Jersey Shore, the roommates have formed a special bond no one can break.

Having been in their shoes before, Farley says she felt “so motherly” with Nilsa Prowant, Aimee Hall, and the rest of the Floribama Shore roommates. “They were so freaking cute,” Farley said.

“All their drama makes me laugh because I’m like, ‘Oh my God, guys you’re so young. You have so much to live for.'” 

And while their drama might seem trivial to Farley, she still gets it. “It’s that young drama that you forget about when you get older,” she explained. The kind of drama that makes Farley laugh now.
