Jersey Shore: Family Vacation fans suspect that Angelina Pivarnick is no longer filming the wildly popular MTV series. They cited what appears to be her absence from photos the cast members posted on their Instagram pages from a trip to El Paso, Texas. However, other reasons have piqued their interest as well.
Angelina Pivarnick was one of the original members of the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast
Angelina Pivarnick was one of the original members of the Jersey Shore cast when the series debuted on MTV in 2009.
However, she only lasted three episodes before being asked to leave by Shore Store owner Danny Merk. Upon her refusal to work her shift at his t-shirt store, this consequence was a prerequisite for remaining in the home rent-free.
This left cast members Nicole Polizzi, Mike Sorrentino, Jenni Farley, Sammi Giancola, Paul DelVecchio, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Vinny Guadagnino. The group became a tight-knit unit by the end of season one.
The cast traveled to Miami in season two, and Angelina returned to the series. However, after fights with fellow cast members Sorrentino and Polizzi, she departed the series for good.
She was brought back for season one of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation as part of a prank pulled by DelVecchio against the female roommates.
Why do fans believe Angelina has departed the cast for a third time?
Fans took to Reddit to share thier opinions as to why they believe Angelina has departed the cast for the third time in a post titled “Is Angelina still on the show?”
Some cited her absence from cast photos taken during the second half of season 5 in El Paso, Texas. Others claimed that she removed the show’s name from her Instagram bio as a reason.
Nonetheless, Pivarnick has not yet commented on whether or not she is a part of the latest filming schedule.
However, she has also not shared any photos taken on location.
“Maybe she needed a time out. Her divorce is probably is getting nasty & she got some work done. I don’t think Angelina would let JS go that easily. IMHO I think she’s the wild card of the group,” wrote one follower.
“With all the recent drama, the girls are probably only willing to film separate from Angelina like they did the first half of FV season 4,” wrote a second Reddit user. They cited rumors Pivarnick was the one who leaked the audio from her wedding to Chris Larangeira.
Subsequently, the ensuing drama caused Nicole Polizzi to quit the series after season 3.
“With the accusations of Angelina being the one who leaked the wedding audio, she may be on her way out on her own instead of being fired. Why would the leaked audio be the problem? Cause they all have contracts that state they’re not to discuss footage shot on the show until it airs on TV. That’s why they go live on Twitter on premiere day. They see the show for the first time with everyone else,” claimed a third fan.
‘Jersey Shore’ is currently airing the first half of season 5
The cast and crew are currently seen on vacation in the Florida Keys. However, these episodes were filmed ahead of the 2021 holiday season and began airing in Jan. 2022.
The reality stars stayed at the Isla Bella Resort with their spouses, significant others, children, and parents.
The group subsequently celebrated Sorrentino finishing up his parole with a huge bash. They also had some fun on a party yacht, tiki boat, and jet skis.
All members of the cast mentioned above attended, plus Deena Cortese and minus Magro, who opted out of filming, and Giancola, who left the series at the end of its original 2012 run.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. EST on MTV.
