Jenni “JWoww” Farley is opening up about her marriage to Roger Mathews calling her decision to say “I do” her “biggest regret.” After filing for divorce last year, the “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” star revealed the news to her co-star and best friend Snooki. During the October 31st episode of the MTV show, JWoww and Snooki were having a deep conversation when they began talking about her divorce — something she tends to not make topic of conversation while filming.
Discussing her frustrations at the progress, which at that time the divorce was not final, JWoww told Snooki, “We were talking about regrets before…and I was thinking about the biggest one.” When the self-proclaimed meatball asked if the regret was Roger, JWoww confirmed it was. “He’s the f—ing worst,” Snooki responded. “But you always knew it wasn’t right.” She then told JWoww to think of the positive things that came out of their marriage, like their two children Meilani and Greyson. “It’s really hard, but they’re my bliss as I’m suffering,” she told Snooki.
Later in the show, JWoww discussed the divorce again in the confessional. She revealed the stress and the “exhausting” process of figuring things out like custody. “I’m going through it with the divorce. It’s been almost a year since I filed,” she stated. “When you get divorced, you’re supposed to be celebrating and start a new chapter, but it’s really heartbreaking. And it’s stressful — the up and down battles of figuring out custody. I just don’t know when it gets better. It’s more than exhausting.” Revealing all she wants is to move forward, she added, “It can mentally break someone. I just want peace.”
That wasn’t the only topic of conversation on the episode. JWoww was still trying to get to the bottom of what happened between her boyfriend, Zack Clayton Carpinello, and her “Jersey Shore” housemate Angelina Pivarnick. As The Blast reported, Zack was seen flirting with Angelina on a recent episode and JWoww took to social media to discuss her embarrassment and frustration regarding the situation. She put both blame on Zack and Angelina, and even briefly broke up with the wrestler because of the incident.
The following week, “Jersey Shore” fans watched an explosive fight break out between JWoww and Angelina that almost turned physical. In this week’s episode, we watched the aftermath of their fight. The girls had a one-on-one discussion where Angelina sweared her innocence and although JWoww stated she didn’t believe her, they decided to move past the incident.

As The Blast reported, following the episode where Zack reportedly grabbed Angelina’s butt and she admitted she felt uncomfortable, JWoww lashed out on both of them on social media. Claiming she wasn’t aware of the situation until she witnessed it on TV, the star tweeted that she felt both “hurt” and “disrespected.” Hours later, it was reported that JWoww ended her relationship with Zack.
Following the split, her wrestler beau took to Instagram apologizing for his actions and vowing to make it up to JWoww.
“I made mistakes that I cannot take back, which I take full responsibility for,” he wrote, adding he would “continue to do everything to make this known to her and her kids, who also have my heart.” Since then, there have been reports the couple are back together.
JWoww’s divorce with Roger Mathews was finalized in August. Taking to social media to announce the news, the MTV star shared a post of Nicole Kidman with the caption, “I’m Freeeeee!” Roger mirrored JWoww’s feelings and posted his own tribute about breaking free. Sharing a video after a workout, he stated, “Today’s a good day.” The former couple experienced a turbulent split with allegations of both physical and verbal abuse. JWoww filed for divorce from Roger in September 2018 citing “irreconcilable differences.”
They began dating during season 3 of “Jersey Shore,” and revealed their engagement in 2012. JWoww and Roger said “I do” in 2015.
