How is this for irony?
As previously detailed, Roger Mathews and Jenni "JWOWW" Farley got into a heated argument last week because the latter was scheduled to work during a time when Mathews thought she'd be helping care for the estranged couple's daughter.
This led to such an argument that Farley slapped Mathews with a restraining order.
Fast forward a few days and Mathews now says he wants to appear on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
According to an Us Weekly insider, that is.
“Roger has been contacting MTV to be on season 3," alleges this source, adding:
"He’s been calling them for the last week. He’s not asking to be paid, his only intentions are to film and give his side of what’s going on with Jenni.
"He’s offering to give his side of the story and that he’ll reveal the truth between him and Jenni.”
This has been Roger's theme ever since his dispute with Farley went viral.
He has released an endless array of Instagram videos in which he emphasizes that Farley is an emotional mess and that he cannot wait for the truth to be revealed.
"This is my liberty and my justice. Jenni has more fans than me and more influence than me but what she does not have and has never had is the truth on her side," he said in one of these videos, going on and on as follows:
There is no “my truth” there is only THE TRUTH” and the public is about to see that in its rawest form. No narration needed. Just stay tuned.
Justice will prevail in the end. I have nothing to hide.
According to various outlets, Mathews actually called the police before Jenni did so late last Thursday night, essentially calling his wife's bluff.
In this 911 call, Mathews tells his two young kids that their mother can't control her emotions, while telling the operator that Farley will be making crap up about what transpired between the spouses.
"She’s going to wait until I leave and call the police and make up some crazy story,” he tells the dispatcher in this call. “This is her m.o. and I’m just ensuring that she cannot do that."
A short time later, Mathews left the home... Farley called the police herself... and Roger arrived back home to learn his wife had been granted a restraining order against him.
Mathews was escorted out of the house and then proceeded to rant about how he's no longer allowed to see his kids.
But we know this isn't the case because Mathews shared the following photo of himself and his young son, Greyson, on Instagram a few days after the fight.
These sources tell Us Weekly that MTV has previously asked Roger to film the series, but he’s always declined in the past.
“He’s on a smear campaign for Jenni right now. He has no other avenue to get his message out,” the tabloid claims. “He’s sitting on his social media airing out his dirty laundry and is trying to tell whoever else will listen.”
Jenni will get final say on whether or not Mathews appears, however.
She filed for divorce back in September, but the pair were then spotted out a month later, having dinner and celebrating their three-year anniversary.
We thought at the time this meant they may be getting back together.
But we highly doubt that will happen now.
