Throughout Jersey Shore's original run, Jenni Farley did her best to steer clear of the drama.
Sure, she might step in and casually cold-cock someone when the situation calls for it, but for the most part, JWoww preferred to quietly collect her MTV checks and leave the overwrought displays of emotion to her co-stars.
But as we all know, sometimes drama finds you, and Jenni's life has been loaded with conflict in recent months.
The latest dust-up involves Farley's boyfriend, Zach Carpinello, and his decision to grope Angelina Pivarnick, while a drunken Jenni slept mere inches away.
Farley dumped Carpinello when she first saw the footage (captured by Jersey Shore cameras), but now they're back together, and it's a whole mess.
But before that debacle, Jenni was dealing with even more intense drama as a result of her divorce from Roger Mathews.
What initially appeared to be an amicable split has devolved into a nightmare of a protracted divorce, complete with revelations that Roger was abusive to Jenni during the final months of their marriage.
Unable to keep the drama off camera any longer, Jenni opened up about these struggles during a recent episode of Shore.
"We were talking about regrets earlier, and I've been thinking about the biggest one," she said to Snooki, who promptyl blurted out, "Roger. He's the f--king worst. But you always knew it wasn't right."
"Yup," JWoww replied.
Jenni put a positive spin on the situation, noting that if it weren't for her time with Roger, she wouldn't have her two kids.
"They're my bliss," she said, "as I'm suffering."
"I'm going through it with the divorce," she later added in a later confessional segment.
"It's been like almost a year since I filed. When you get a divorce, you're supposed to be celebrating and like start a new chapter, but it's really heartbreaking," Jenni said.
"And it's stressful, the up-and-down battle of figuring out custody issues. I just don't know when it gets better. It's more than exhausting; it can like mentally break someone. I just want peace."
Understandably upset at being called "the worst" on national TV, Roger responded in a statement issued to Us Weekly:
"You don't spend almost a decade of your life with only one person then just never care about them again," he said.
"You can act like you do but you're probably lying," Mathews added.
"Hatred spawns from love."
To be fair, Jenni never actually said that she hated Roger, but it's not hard to see how he might have surmised such animosity on the basis of her comments.
But while we can see why Roger might be offended, he really doesn't have any right to be.
The best thing he could do at this point is take a tip from old-school JWoww and just take a seat on the sidelines while the drama unfolds.
