As we reported earlier, last night’s episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation would’ve been a total snoozefest were it not for the surprise return of the Rob Kardashian of Staten Island herself, Angelina Pivarnick.
“Jolie” isn’t exactly a fan favorite, but she certainly livened up last night’s proceedings, which otherwise would’ve been highlighted by Snooki helping her kids with a school project.
At first, the kinder, gentler, slightly soberer Jersey Shore was a nice change of pace, but if we’re being honest, the last couple episodes have dragged a bit.
The show could use a bit of the petty conflict that helped to make its first iteration so memorable, and fans are hoping that’s where Angelina comes in.
Based on Pivarnick’s recent Instagram activity, we’re guessing viewers won’t have to wait long for her to deliver the goods.
On Thursday, Pivarnick touted her return with a photo of a rather combative coffee mug.
“TOMORROW IS MY RETURN ON @jerseyshore!!!!! Can’t wait for you all to see. I will be sipping my TEA out of my amazing cup I dedicate to @jwoww,” she captioned the pic below.
Amidst a jumble of hashtags and emojis, Pivarnick added, “Keep hating.”
Needless to say, Jenni “JWoww” Farley was less than thrilled when she laid eyes on the post.
“Who’s following who?! Jealous of what? Your third engagement or third chance in the house?” Farley commented.
“You want me to show u the door … again #statenislanddump.”
“Lmfaooooooo yeah ok. ARE YOU EVEN ON THE SHOW THIS YEAR YOURSELF I HAVENT NOTICED. ALL YOU DO IS SLEEPING,” Angelina replied.
“Rather be sleeping than regret looking like you on national TV.” Jenni shot back.
It wasn’t long before Deena Nicole-Cortese jumped into the fray, writing:
“Omg you left the house wanting to make amends with everyone.”
“I’m confused with this post.. why start silly drama over insta?”
What we have here is Mayweather-McGregor caliber trash talk, but will it translate to the sort of on-air drama fans are hoping for?
Yes, says Pivarnick:
“I didn’t really wanna have that altercation with her,” says Angelina, adding that she and Jenni very nearly came to blows,” she recently told Us Weekly.
“If it comes down to it, I’m gonna have to do it, but I literally wanted to be classy. I wanted to just make my amends without having to throw fists this season.”
