In retrospect, we should've seen this one coming.
When Angelina Pivarnick re-joined the cast of Jersey Shore, we should've known it would only be a matter of time before she would butt heads with Jenni Farley.
But to be fair, we never could've guessed that the spat would involve a pierced nipple and a failed attempt at a threesome ... gotta hand it to them on that one.
Obviously, we've seen some vicious Shore fights over the years. This show's cast members have never minced words, which is part of why people adore them.
Several notable brawls have involved JWoww removing her comically-oversized earrings in order to get physical. But we have never, ever seen this brutal of a verbal exchange.
Yes, it was that bad ... we wish we were kidding.
Check out the footage and decide for yourself:
24 + 3 = Trouble
As longtime fans of the cultural phenomenon that is Jersey Shore probably know, Angelina and JWoww have never been friends, but the bad blood really reached a boiling point this season thanks to some shady behavior from Jenni's new boyfriend, Zack "24" Carpinello.
She Knows How to Pick 'Em
Carpinello, as you may already know, is ... what's the word we're looking for ... oh, yeah, a douchebag. As far as we can tell, he's not that into Jenni, and is merely using her to advance his pro wrestling career. (We're guessing his alter-ego for the ring is named Lord Douchington.)
Zack is a moron in many respects, but does seem self-aware enough to realize that he has to stay with Jenni a while in order for this promotional stunt to pan out, so he's found ways of keeping himself entertained while he bides his time.
While visiting Jenni in Las Vegas recently, Zack clearly decided to try and turn the pre-existing hostilities with Angelina into sexual tension and execute a threesome. Seriously, dude thought this was a good plan. Like we said, he's a moron.
So Crazy it Just Might Work?
To be fair, that strategy isn't quite as dumb as it sounds, as Angelina often uses hostility to conceal her attraction to members of the opposite sex. (For further examples of this, see her every interaction with Vinny.)
Plenty of Blame to Go Around
Also, to be clear, Angelina is not blameless in all of this. Pivarnick never knows when to leave well enough alone. At the same time, there's no question that JWoww should definitely be MORE pissed at Zack after the way all of this played out.
Tough to Defend
After all, he's the one who got his grope on with Angelina, grabbing that a$$ while his wasted girlfriend Jenni was literally passed out between his legs.
Naturally, Farley was incensed along with the rest of America when she saw the grope scene on last week's episode of Jersey Shore, and she very publicly kicked Carpinello's ass to the curb as a result. A nation cheered.
"After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt," she wrote on Instagram in response to the episode. "I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me."
Out of the Loop
"For 5 months I was kept in the dark about this," she added, clearly upset at the show's producers as well. "For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a story line that will forever haunt me."
Say It Ain't So
Powerful words. Unfortunately, she must not have fully believed them, or perhaps her level of self-respect is just that low. Just days later Jenni and Zack were back together and posing for pics at Universal Studios.
But remember, all of this went down in the past week! As Jenni reminded us, the current season of Shore was taped over five months ago - which means we have THIS to look forward to tonight.
Oh It's ON NOW!
“How much do you commit to a lie?” Jenni begins the confrontation with her longtime rival. She's referring to Angelina's claims about Zack (which, of course, were later proven to be true).
She's Right, For Once
“I don’t commit to s–t. I would be the same way if I felt guilty too. It’s fine," Pivarnick shoots back, in her own defense.
Jenni will likely cringe as she watches this scene tonight. In addition to accusing Angelina of lying, she refers to her housemate as “f–king stupid.”
“You look at everyone like, ‘I don’t understand why I have problems in my relationship. I don’t understand why Chris has such anger issues,'” Farley's tirade continues. “Here’s the reason, Angelina. Stop disrespecting your man.”
For a Moment, We're With Angelina
“I would never kiss somebody else, girl. I don’t even think your man’s hot,” Pivarnick responds.
And Then She Effs It Up
Angie then takes things a bit too far by bringing up Jenni's all-too-fresh divorce from Roger Mathews and calling her a “deflector” and a “hypocrite.”
As Ronnie has learned repeatedly in recent weeks, bringing up JWoww's divorce is not necessarily relevant to the other feuds at hand, but is a terrific way to land yourself in some serious hot water.
Respect All Around
“I respect my kids and I respect my ex-husband. That’s how you get a divorce,” Farley counters. High fives all around.
Turning her attention to Ronnie, she says, “And you take note too motherf–ker.” DAMNNNNNN!
The Pauly Response
That face says it all. This is one of the most serious verbal confrontations we've seen on Jersey Shore in quite some time.
“She’s a bulls–t artist and she’s lying right now about me and her 24-year-old sperm bank donor boyfriend,” Pivarnick tells the camera in a confessional segment, which JWoww is sure to love this evening.
The Last Word
“Sorry, don’t want your man," Angelina concludes ... and while she does mask her true feelings sometimes, we're not doubting the Kim Kardashian of Staten Island on this one.
What the Future Holds
Now, let's all find out if Jenni and Zack's relationship can survive yet another week of resurfaced footage!
