‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ star ‘JWoww’ is an introvert according to ’24’ 

For as much as Farley is in the spotlight, her fiancé says “she is a very introverted person.” As Carpinello explained to Wrestling Inc.: “Jenni hates cameras. She hates being the center of attention.” 

During the pandemic, Carpinello would film promos in Farley’s home — something Carpinello tried to involve Farley with, but she refused. Jersey Shore: Family Vacation used a small skeleton crew to safely film footage for the new season. This was good for Farley, as Carpinello says she can’t film herself.
