The cast has been able to reconnect with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, but there are noticeably some faces missing. One was Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola who revealed why she decided to not come back, despite everyone hoping she would change her mind.

But then there was an addition that many people probably weren’t expecting. That would be Angelina Pivarnick who has several nicknames like “dirty little hamster” and the “Kim Kardashian of Staten Island.” She hasn’t been part of the cast in many years, so why did she come back?

Here are seven things to know from what she has been doing since the show and why she decided to come back (page 6).

1. Angelina Pivarnick was on Jersey Shore Season 1 and 2

  • Pivarnick left the show twice before never coming back.

It’s been a while so in case you forgot, Pivarnick was part of the original cast, but she eventually left. The reason you may have forgotten was that she was definitely an outsider, due to friction she had with her fellow castmates. She left because she refused to work at the T-shirt shop in Season 1 AND then left in Season 2 for fighting.

She notably punched Mike after he insulted her. Then she got into a fight with Snooki who hooked up with the same guy she previously hooked up with. After all these years, Pivarnick has pretty much been left out of the franchise until now.

Next: This is what she has been doing since the show.
