When the world first learned that Jenni Farley and Roger Mathews had separated, it was Roger who broke the news via a series of videos that, at the time, were viewed as admirably heartfelt and sincere.
Roger vowed to win Jenni back and claimed that no one was at fault for the split -- the two of them had simply grown apart.
We soon learned that wasn't the case.
Farley has now accused Mathews of abuse, claiming that he often became violent with her and was negligent in his parenting duties.
If you've been watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation this season, you know that Jenni has been reluctant to talk about her troubled marriage -- though she hasn't held back her comments on Ronnie Magro's relationship with Jen Harley.
That all changes tonight, as Jenni will finally open up to her housemates about the Roger situation -- and admit that she was wrong for repeatedly sounding off on Ronnie's predicament.
“I thought silence was greater good,” she explains in a preview clip.
“As bad as [my] relationship [with Roger] got, I stayed f–king quiet because that’s what you’re supposed to do. … So to me, like, the ultimate betrayal is the fact that he went public.”
In a confessional segment, the usually stoic Jenni gets emotional while discussing her divorce:
“My divorce, um, it was a sore subject,” she tells the cameras.
“I filed before [we went to] the dude ranch, but I didn’t want to talk about it publicly out of respect for my children, so when those videos came out, I feel like it was a really, really low blow [by] Roger.”
As for the clip of Mathews in the back of a police car that Roger posted earlier this year, Jenni says her ex wasn't lying necessarily, but he was playing up the drama to try and earn sympathy.
“All I said was I want a cooling off period. I don’t want him in my face. Then he left," Farley says.
"People think I had him arrested. … [That’s] not even the case,” she clarifies. “You wouldn’t have your phone in the back of a cop car. … They’re being nice and giving him a ride.”
As for the equally troubling Ronnie-Jen situation, JWoww says she's no one to judge:
“The irony in all of this is I’d love to make fun of Ron and Jen [Harley],” she admits.
“Car chases, getting run over, you know, drama, and now I’m on that level.”
Farley wraps up her commentary (knowing her aversion to emotion, this might be the last time she speaks publicly on the matter) by repeating that her top priority is the health and happiness of her kids:
“I just want this to calm down because I’m in the public eye and I don’t want this to get out of control,” she says. “At the end of the day, [he’s] still the father of my kids. [I] gotta keep it together.
“Everything that I do in this life, today, the kids come first,” she adds.
“And for him to literally just piss on all of that and call me, like, a piece of s–t mom, that sucks," Farley continues.
"The last thing I want is this divorce to drag out. Thankfully, we have a prenup because this thing can’t end soon enough.”
It's been a rough year for the Jersey Shore crew.
And it sounds like Roger is in for one hell of a fight if he decides to continue testing Jenni's patience.
