Is Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley Leaving ‘Jersey Shore’ Because of Angelina Pivarnick?
Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding drama is finally out in the open. After the finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 3 aired, some fans were curious about Farley’s leaving the show. Did the drama from Pivarnick’s wedding cause Farley to make her decision, or was there something more?
Jenni is done with ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’
After Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi announced her departure from the show, fans felt it was only a matter of time before Farley did the same. Another season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation has yet to be confirmed, but it’s unlikely Farley will agree to take part in it if it happens. “I am way to ride or die to see you leave,” Farley tweeted on June 18. “If you’re done, I’m done. There’s no Jwoww without my Snooki.”
Now, with Polizzi and Farley out of future episodes, fans aren’t sure another season will be possible.
Jenni has been hurt by ‘Jersey Shore’ in the past
Farley has been hurt by the way Jersey Shore has portrayed her and her roommates before. “How I’m edited on tv can sometimes suck, but I will always keep it 100,” Farley wrote in an Instagram caption on New Years Eve. “Some of the scenes you see are condensed because there’s only so many minutes in an episode.”
In the past, the show ultimately caused a rift between Farley and Pivarnick after their trip to Las Vegas. For months after Zack “24” Carpinello’s questionable behavior with Pivarnick, there was tension between her and Farley — until the episode aired. Humiliated, Farley briefly called things off with Carpinello and started to mend her relationship with Pivarnick.
The ‘drama with Angelina’ is what made ‘Snooki’ want to leave the show
When Polizzi announced she was leaving Jersey Shore on It’s Happening With Snooki and Joey, she said: “I’m just not comfortable filming that show anymore with the direction it’s going, with all the drama.”
Then, in an interview with HelloGiggles, Polizzi added: “I’m not in the mood to do this drama with Angelina anymore, and I just want to be happy and positive, and film fun shows. I’m a mom of three, and I’m 32 years old, so when I leave my kids and film a show, I want to have a good time and not be around negative energy. So, yeah, I don’t think I’m going back.” While the drama wasn’t the sole motivator in Polizzi’s decision, it eventually became the deciding factor.
Angelina’s wedding was the last straw for ‘JWoww’
After fans finally got to see what happened at Pivarnick’s wedding, Farley openly spoke about her experience on Twitter. “I watched my best friend quit because she couldn’t handle the stress,” she tweeted. “I stayed up so many nights hearing Deena cry over being called names she didn’t deserve. All while Angelina basked in the attention she was given. 7 months I waited for tonight.” Then, Farley called Pivarnick out for blocking her from viewing her Instagram Live and threatened to share texts from her, too.
To many, it seems like the finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation served as a cathartic release for the roommates. After months of turmoil, each of them was finally free to speak their mind.
Is the drama from Angelina’s wedding forcing Jenni to want to leave?
A lot could have caused Farley to decide to leave Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Though she hasn’t outwardly said Pivarnick was the driving force behind her decision, the drama from her wedding likely played a big role.
It’s unclear what Farley will do next. Many fans are hopeful that she’ll follow Polizzi’s footsteps and continue to do more television.
