‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’: Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley Tried to Hook Up With Pauly D After Filing for Divorce

DJ Pauly DelVecchio and Jenni “JWoww” Farley were moments away from hooking up on the May 7 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Much to the surprise of fans, this wasn’t the first time Farley attempted to start something with her Jersey Shore roomie. 

During the episode, Farley talked about trying to hook up with DelVecchio before her divorce was finalized and admitted wanting to explore a relationship with him.

Pauly D and ‘JWoww’ didn’t hook up 

During the May 7 episode, Vinny Guadagnino was the most excited about the prospect of his best friend and Farley hooking up. “I 100 percent want Pauly and Jenni to hook up,” Guadagnino said. “To see Jenni hook up with Pauly now, that would be like watching greatness all over again. That would be like if Michael Jordan decided to play one more game with Scottie Pippen, just for old time’s sake. The fact that we’re even talking about this, I’m like, Woah. Ten years later, full circle.” 

Unfortunately for everyone involved — including their nosey roomies — the two went to bed alone. “I would put it right in, but I have too much respect for her,” DelVecchio told his roommates.

“JWoww, I will never disrespect you like that,” he said to Farley. “You know that, right? I will never make you do anything that would jeopardize anything.” At the time, Farley was dealing with the repercussions of Zack “24” Carpinello’s actions in Las Vegas, and DelVecchio didn’t want to jeopardize that.

‘JWoww’ tried to spend the night with Pauly D before

After DelVecchio returned to his hotel room, Farley had an exciting conversation with Angelina Pivarnick. “I am 100 percent single,” she told Pivarnick, who was confused why DelVecchio would pass up the opportunity to be with Farley.

“[But] remember that time we were in New York City? He shut the door on me,” Farley said. “Me and Pauly had a nice dinner together that night. And then we went home together. And he shut the door on me.”

After filing for divorce from Roger Mathews in Sept. 2018, Farley told the confessional cameras that she tried to explore a relationship with DelVecchio. “Pauly and I have this weird past,” Farley said. “He surprised me for my birthday and I went back to his hotel room and it just didn’t work out like that. So I decided to just end it there.”

Up until that point, it seemed as though DelVecchio was the one who had been consistently turned down by Farley. However, she was hurt when DelVecchio denied her in the past. “I mean, obviously, [being denied] was terrible. So yeah, I really don’t know what to say. I would have totally went and did dirty things with Pauly,” Farley added.

Confused, Pivarnick confronted DelVecchio to clear things up about his past with Farley. 

Pauly D waited too long

In the other hotel room, DelVecchio explained his side of the story to Pivarnick. “Obviously I wanted to [hook up with Jenni], but I didn’t know if I was supposed to cross that line or not,” DelVecchio said of the night he and Farley spent in New York. “And then I slept on it and dude swooped in,” he added, referring to Carpinello. “At that point, I didn’t even know she wanted to. What happens if I do it, and she gets back with the dude tomorrow?” he asked.

‘JWoww’ would date DJ Pauly D 

Perhaps the most exciting thing to come out of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is the prospect that Farley and DelVecchio could end up together. 

“I love Pauly for so many reasons, and I feel like because of that, there actually would have to be substance there before I actually sleep with him,” Farley admitted. In other words, she would want to give a relationship with DelVecchio a serious try before ever sleeping with him. “Because this isn’t 10 years ago, so I don’t want to be just one of those girls that like him because of his success. I also don’t want to be treated like one of those girls, either.”

The episode concluded with Farley adding that she “would be very open to talking to Pauly,” but she had yet to see that DelVecchio reciprocate that desire. 

Today, Farley is back with Carpinello, but will she ever get around to exploring a relationship with DelVecchio? Jersey Shore fans hope so!
