When Jenni Farley began dating Zack Carpinello, many fans expressed concerns that the Jersey Shore star was moving too fast.
After all, the ink was not yet dry on JWoww’s divorce from Roger Mathews, and as his nickname indicates, Zack is just 24.
Those fears were realized when Shore cameras caught Carpinello caught in the act of groping Angelina Pivarnick.
The night the episode aired, a humiliated Jenni announced that she had broken up with Carpinello
“After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt,” she wrote on Instagram.
“I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me. For five months I was kept in the dark about this," Jenni continued.
"For five months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a story line that will forever haunt me," Farley added.
"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.”
Yes, Jenni had every reason to feel betrayed, and Shore fans applauded her decision to kick Carpinello to the curb.
And those fans were deeply disappointed when it was revealed that Farley and Carpinello had gotten back together.
But before you add Jenni to the ever-growing list of "canceled" Jersey Shore stars, you may want to check out the latest twist in the never-ending rollercoaster that is her love life:
Jenni’s co-star Deena Nicole Cortese was in attendance at the 2019 People’s Choice Awards on Sunday, and she offered a surprising update on Farley’s relationship with Carpinello:
“Right now they’re not together, but they’re working on it,” Deena told reporters.
Obviously, that’s kind of a mixed bag.
While it’s great news that Jenni has not fully forgiven Zack’s creepy ass, the "working on it" part is troubling.
As anyone who bore witness to Zack’s Shore appearances knows, this guy has Jenni wrapped around his little finger.
(Or perhaps some other appendage.)
JWoww is usually more stoical than co-stars, but when it comes to Zack, she simply can’t keep her emotions in check.
What we’re saying is — like it or not, you’ve probably got at least one more season of 24 on the way.
