‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ Season 5 Episode 17 recap 

After learning Mike spoke with Chris Larangeira and Joe “Old Bridge” Tarallo, Angelina has a bone to pick with her Jersey Shore roommate. As “El Paso Part 1” was airing, Angelina called Mike out on Twitter.

“Stirring the pot @ItsTheSituation,” she said in a tweet. “Unreal.” In another tweet, Angelina claimed the Old Situation was making his return to the reality series. 

In the episode, the Jersey Shore OGs are in Texas to see Pauly DelVecchio perform. During their dinner, Angelina called on FaceTime to wish him luck. 

“Why couldn’t you come?” Mike asked on the call. “Get off the phone, Mike,” Angelina replied. “I’m mad at you.”

As explained in the episode, Angelina didn’t go to Texas because she had a rhinoplasty and was feeling animosity toward the group about the recent headlines. Based on her response, Mike told his roommates: “Yo, she wants beef with Old Situation.” 

Angelina Pivarnick says Mike ‘The Situation’ shouldn’t be talking to her ex

What’s more, Mike also took to social media during the episode to clarify his intent addressing Angelina on FaceTime. “My thinking was everyone should know what’s going on true or not and we can figure this thing out together,” he said in a tweet. “The truth will set you free which we end up getting if you keep watching.”

“I was meeting her call with positivity and eventually in person with a civil conversation to find common ground,” he replied to another fan criticizing him. “It’s called a mediation. Once you go negative and towards confrontation, I will match that energy.” 

After the episode was over and fan reactions seemed to have subsided, Mike tweeted an inspirational quote. “The only way to win with a toxic person is to remove yourself from the equation,” he said.
