‘Jersey Shore’: Fans React to Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi’s ‘Negativity’ Toward Angelina Pivarnick

Viewers of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation were stunned at how negatively Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi reacted to Angelina Pivarnick during the August 19th episode of the MTV series. After over a year in which the reality stars did not communicate, Polizzi and Pivarnick met, hashed out their differences with one another, and promised to move forward in their friendship.

Nicole Polizzi and Angelina Pivarnick’s unsteady friendship

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Angelina Pivarnick have had an unsteady friendship since season 1 of the original Jersey Shore series. The women have experienced many ups and downs in their relationship as they are both headstrong and set in their ways. 

Polizzi initially had issues with the way she believed Pivarnick acted toward their Shore Store boss, Danny Merk, and the other castmates in their shared home. The women’s issues came to a head in season 2 when they physically fought as the other roommates attempted to break them up. Polizzi wanted an apology for Pivarnick’s actions, yet Pivarnick refused to give one.

Later, the women had a dispute during Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2, which caused Polizzi to leave filming for 24 hours. They would reconcile, but that was not the end of their difficulties with one another. During the filming of Pivarnick’s wedding to Chris Larangeira in November 2019, the women’s issues exploded after Polizzi, Jenni Farley, and Deena Cortese gave a speech that the bride found disrespectful. This caused Polizzi to leave the show for over a year.

Before Polizzi’s return for the second half of season 4, she and Pivarnick made amends. After sharing a meal and several drinks, the women chose to put the past behind them and move forward. 

However, Pivarnick reacted with surprise and shock, to Polizzi’s drunken outburst against her during the show’s August 19 episode. Polizzi made disparaging remarks against both her castmate and Larangeira.

Polizzi taunted Pivarnick with some unsettling comments about her marriage, which almost sent her over the edge.

Polizzi came into her 24-hour vacation with her roommates at a resort in the Poconos, Pennsylvania, ready to party. She began drinking the moment she arrived for best pal Farley’s birthday shenanigans. This binge drinking continued through the festivities, which included a great meal, boardwalk games, and lots of laughs.

Polizzi began to turn against Pivarnick when she told the OG star of the series that she “just got here” and should not have opinions about personal matters such as her marriage to Larangeira.

This set a drunk Polizzi off even more as she continued to make comments about Pivarnick, even going so far as to throw crabcakes at her from across the table.

Viewers of the series appeared to take Pivarnick’s side in the confrontation based on the comments of an Instagram post that teased the episode.

“Snooki gets sloppy. I got 2nd hand embarrassment watching this. Wife n mother of 3 on national tv bullying Angelina and acting like she’s in HS. Her husband was probably cringing harder than we all were,” wrote one Instagram user.

“Why did Snooki come in with all that negativity when everyone was getting along?” questioned a second follower.

“Snooki, come on, your a sweet girl and mom. But this is out of line. You NEED to grow up!!!” noted a third viewer.

There are only two episodes left of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation this season. How Pivarnick and Polizzi’s relationship will continue to play out remains to be seen. If their history is any indication, the castmates will likely make up once Polizzi realizes the extent of her actions while intoxicated.

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs Thursdays at 8/7c on MTV.
