‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’: What Will Happen Between JWoww and Angelina Pivarnick On This Week’s Episode?
MTV’s Jenni “Jwoww” Farley and boyfriend Zack Clayton Carpinello, nicknamed “24” by her castmates because of their sizable age difference, recently broke up after he was caught on tape trying to flirt with her castmate Angelina Pivarnick in a recent episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
But eyewitnesses told Us Weekly that the two were recently spotted out for the night in New Jersey with Farley’s children, sparking rumors of a potential reunion.
Read on to learn more about what Pivarnick and Carpinello had to say on social media after the episode aired and what’s in store for tomorrow night’s dramatic episode.
Carpinello got touchy-feely with Angelina Pivarnick on ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’
33-year-old Farley and Carpinello, a professional wrestler, started dating several months ago after Farley’s divorce last year from Roger Mathews, her ex-husband. Mathews is also the father of her two children, five-year-old Meilani and three-year-old Greyson.
Farley publicly gushed about Carpinello in interviews and included him in a Boyfriend Tag video on her YouTube channel, saying that the two enjoyed an active sex life and that he was mature for his age.
Carpinello met Farley’s Jersey Shore roommates on the most recent season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. In last week’s episode, though, things took a dark turn when the cast, including Deena Nicole Cortese and Pivarnick, headed out to a Las Vegas club for the night.
The fateful night that led to Farley’s breakup
Carpinello had already raised fans’ eyebrows earlier in the episode with his invasive questions about Pivarnick’s sex life. “You can disrespect your man all you want, but you’re not going to disrespect mine,” Farley snapped at Pivarnick when she pushed back against Carpinello’s questions.
At the club, Farley lived it up at first but eventually passed out on the floor after drinking too much tequila. While Farley knelt on the ground, resting against Carpinello, Pivarnick danced against him and things got handsy.
“All of a sudden, I feel this big hand right on me,” Pivarnick told MTV producers. “I was surprised because his hands are big, so it was on my ass and my side, and Jenni was like, right there.” Meanwhile, Carpinello leaned in flirtatiously and said, “Are we friends now?”
Later, in the elevator, it appeared that Carpinello was leaning in to kiss Pivarnick’s cheek as he put his arm around her. Pivarnick complained, “He doesn’t know what boundaries are.”
Their castmate, Vincent “Vinny” Guadagnino, said he’d never seen Farley so drunk before and called Carpinello’s behavior “creepy.” He admitted that he’d even seen Carpinello “grabbing Angelina’s ass a little bit.”
JWoww spoke out about Carpinello’s betrayal on Instagram
JWoww shared a heartbreaking Instagram post after last Thursday’s episode. She explained that she hadn’t known about Carpinello’s behavior with Pivarnick for five long months and felt betrayed both by her castmates and her boyfriend.
“After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt,” she wrote. “I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me.”
Shortly thereafter, JWoww confirmed that she had broken up with Carpinello because of his behavior in Vegas.
Pivarnick had some fighting words of her own
Pivarnick, for her part, spoke out on Twitter about Carpinello’s invasive questions. “No there’s a difference between me telling the roomies about my sex life but I didn’t know this kid from Adam. So yeah it’s not cool,” she claimed. She also retweeted supportive messages from fans.
On Instagram, alongside a snapshot of herself in lingerie and pearls, Pivarnick shared a quote from Audrey Hepburn shortly after the episode aired: “I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong. I believe that happy girls are the prettiest girls. I believe tomorrow is another day, and I believe in miracles.”
Carpinello expressed remorse for his behavior
After the episode aired, Carpinello took to Instagram to post about his regrets for his behavior with Pivarnick.
“I made mistakes that I cannot take back, which I take full responsibility for,” he began. Later in the post, he added that he apologized to both Farley and Pivarnick.
Carpinello concluded, “I love Jenni…I will continue to do everything to make this known to her and her kids, who also have my heart. I will make it certain that nothing like this ever happen again, in any way regardless of the outcome.”
Carpinello’s night out with Farley in New Jersey
Despite their breakup, Carpinello and Farley were recently seen out for the night with Farley’s children and father at a theme park in New Jersey.
Witnesses told the outlet that the pair kept their eye on the kids most of the time and didn’t exhibit much PDA. However, they seemed to have a good time with the kids, and this may be a potential sign of a reunion in the future.
They haven’t confirmed they’re back together, but it looks like Carpinello and Pivarnick might not be entirely over.
The roommates will get involved in the JWoww-Angelina battle this week
As for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, it looks like the drama will continue this week as Farley and Pivarnick launch into an all-out war about the incident with 24.
Nicole “Snooki” LaValle, who wasn’t in last week’s show, is seen supporting Farley in two explosive new sneak peeks for tomorrow night’s episode. In one trailer, she calls Pivarnick a “liar” and runs crying from the cast’s shared rental home.
In another clip, Guadagnino explains that Pivarnick’s relationship with her husband-to-be is struggling because of the rumors about her flirtation with Carpinello. JWoww thinks Pivarnick tried to kiss her boyfriend and warns that she’ll “have to deal with me” the next time all the roommates get together.
And, with Cortese’s baby’s baptism coming up, it looks like that might happen sooner rather than later.
Cortese, meanwhile, tries to hold Pivarnick back as she and JWoww grab wine bottles and look like they might get into a physical fight.
The new episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will air Thurs., Oct. 17, on MTV at 8 p.m. EST.
