The Vulture article summarizes Davidson and Kardashian West’s evening together, complete with rooftop dining and breathtaking views. But it’s the title of the article that has Jersey Shore fans talking.
“The day I never [thought] we’d ever see: Angelina displaced as the ‘Kim Kardashian of Staten Island,'” a fan shares on Reddit. “Kim Kardashian is the Kim Kardashian of Staten Island!!” another fan replied.

Angelina Larangeira calls herself the ‘Kim Kardashian of Staten Island’
When Larangeira joined the cast of Jersey Shore, she described herself as the “Kim Kardashian of Staten Island” to producers and castmates. “Everybody tells me that I look like Kim Kardashian because I have the swagger like her, I look like her,” she says in her casting tape for the MTV reality series.
“More like the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island,” Guadagnino interjects in a video where he, Larangeira, and Pauly DelVecchio react to the casting footage. The show’s cast often made fun of Larangeira for her nickname, even twisting the term to mock her in the Miami season of Jersey Shore.
