A little over a week after announcing she was done with her boyfriend for appearing to get handsy with her castmate, “Jersey Shore” star Jenni “JWoww” Farley has reportedly taken back professional wrestler Zack Clayton Carpinello.
And “Jersey Shore” fans are livid.
After the two were photographed hanging out in Universal Studios Florida over the weekend, a source told TMZ that Jenni and “24,” Zack’s age-inspired nickname, are currently trying to work things out.
“WOW!!!! Now we know why [you’re] still fighting with [Angelina Pivarnick]. [You’re] back with that loser of a boyfriend. Stupid!!” one critic tweeted in response to the news, as another added, “Now that you took back 24, the sociopath, does that mean you forgive Angeliners and are [willing] to share him next time he tries to smash her in front of you? Girl, Roger [Mathews] was a cheater and so is this guy. Get a CLUE. And stop introducing losers to your kids.”
Replying to the message above, another dissenter commented, “[You would] think if she forgave one she [would] forgive the other, but in this case she only blames Angelina. That’s convenient for her.”
“I’m sorry but you are delusional for taking that guy back!” wrote a fourth. “If he did that to you with your own roommate, basically a family member in front of you, what makes you think he isn’t doing same crap behind your back? What makes you think he’s ready to be ‘step daddy’? Come on girl!”
Some even seem to think “24” is doing whatever he can for some air time — and that Jenni is doing whatever she can for a storyline.
“He trying to make it to another season,” one critic tweeted, as another added, “She’s so dumb, he’s totally a disrespectful douchebag who’s using her to get fame. Shame on her for setting that example for her daughter.”
A third dissenter wrote, “[Jenni] are you forgiving [Angelina] also? Or just that creeper? Oh wait, it’s all for ratings. Got it.”
The drama kicked off in Las Vegas about five months ago, but JWoww didn’t get to see what actually went down until it aired on MTV Oct. 10. She was technically present for the dancing and flirty behavior but was admittedly “blacked out.”
“After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt,” she wrote on Instagram immediately after the footage aired. “I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me. For 5 months I was kept in the dark about this. For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a story line that will forever haunt me. My heart hurts on so many levels. One thing I learned from tonight’s episode is know your value. Don’t ever lower your standards.”
Hours after Farley shared her feelings on the matter, Carpinello publicly apologized to his ex and to Pivarnick.
“I made mistakes that I cannot take back, which I take responsibility for,” he wrote. “Jenni does not deserve any damage from anybody else. This is on me. I sincerely apologize to Jenni. I apologize to Angelina as well. I love Jenni, with everything I have, I make this known to her every day. I will continue to make this known to her and her kids, who also have my heart. I will make it certain that nothing like this ever happen again, in any way regardless of the outcome.”
The following episode, which aired Oct. 17, documented all the he-said-she-said that ensued after everyone got back to their respective homes in their respective cities. Angelina told her fiancé, Chris, that Zack instigated the “uncomfortable” situation, while Jenni was told (presumably by Zack) that Angelina kissed him.
While Farley seems to be on the path toward reconciliation with Carpinello, she still appears to be feuding with Pivarnick, who she blasted for “asking for a threesome.” Angelina claims the request was insincere and just a joke.
“Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
