Even today, the drama that initially began brewing between her and female cast mates, notoriously Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese, still persists and is a major arc in the real-life story of the group.
Now, it appears that in an all-new episode premiering Thursday, Dec. 17, Pivarnick and Cortese are set to come face-to-face to address their issues.
The “Jersey Shore” on-and-off star told E! News in a recent chat that it was all about to go down.
I was so unsure, uneasy, I felt like I was going to get ambushed,” Pivarnick told the publication just ahead of her arrival at the Las Vegas resort that would serve as the show’s filming location.
“I didn’t know what was going to happen. I didn’t know who was going to be there. I had no clue. Walking in there, I definitely had to meditate.”
The 34-year-old shared that she was having a particularly difficult time coming to terms with recent episodes that aired showcasing the women of the show belittling her and saying how they’d prefer if she didn’t return to the cast.
“It was kind of crazy that I was watching how they didn’t want to film with me anymore, but if it happened to you guys, you guys wouldn’t feel happy if I did that to you,” she admitted in the candid chat about it all.
Defending Her Role
Pivarnick went on to defend herself and her position on the show despite her naysayers by adding that, “I think they weren’t putting themselves in my shoes and I really wanted to sit down with them because I wanted them to hear my voice and understand why I was liking mean girl comments and I really wasn’t going after them, but I just wanted my voice to be heard and for them to be a little more understanding and compassionate.”
The Difference Between Girls And Guys
Over a year after Pivarnick’s wedding where Farley, Cortese, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi served as bridesmaids and delivered a speech that the former deemed “gross” and “distasteful,” she is still thinking about the ordeal, but relegates it as just the actions of women in general.
“Girls, we are much more difficult than men,” she justified her statement by saying.
“We’ll keep it going for months and years. We hold grudges but it is what it is. It sucks but that’s just how girls are. Going into this, I just wanted to sit down with them. I wanted to nip this in the bud already.”
