Jersey Shore Recap: Paying with Jewish Barbie

For most of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season 2, fans have been watching Ronnie get pounded on by girlfriend Jen Harley.

The two have a very unhealthy relationship.

On Thursday night, however, we were left to wonder whether this muscle-bound reality star stepped out on his violent baby mama and pounded another woman.

With his penis. In her vagina.

Did he really cheat on Harley?!?

The situation to do so presented itself because Angelina brought along her friend Lindsay (aka “Jewish Barbie”) for a night out with the cast in Jersey.

While Pauly D and Vinny most certainly seemed interested in this special guest, Jewish Barbie set her sights on Ronnie from the start. That much was clear.

She Twerked for him. She joked about who’s bed she’d be sleeping in that night. She got Ronnie’s mojo going, big time.

During these interactions, though, Ronnie was also texting/fighting with Harley.

They starting having issues when she sent him photos of his ex (possibly Sammi Giancola?) to show him how happy women were without him.

Ouch, right?!?

Harley also allegedly told Ronnie she was going to find another guy to raise their daughter — all over text message!

Ignoring Snooki’s advice to “pass [Jewish Barbie] off” to Pauly or Vinny, Ronnie decided to tell Lindsay that the group had a hot tub at their place.

Once they arrived there, the girls and guys mostly separated.

Upstairs, the girls played a game of “F-ck, Marry, Kill,” where Lindsay revealed she was interested in banging Ronnie. D’uh.

Meanwhile, the men were downstairs busting Ronnie’s chops about the entire ordeal.

They were totally joking around, but when they realized Ronnie was actually considering hooking up with Jewish Barbie,” they tried to talk him out of it.

“Women in hot tubs are Ronnie’s Kryptonite, okay?” The Situation told the camera. “When Jewish Barbie comes out in her bathing suit, he will be left powerless.”

Yup. That’s exactly what transpired.

borrow shirt?

As the episode came to a close and the credits rolled, Ronnie and Lindsay went to his room and he told her she could sleep in his bed.

“There goes my life,” he joked before the the episode faded to black.

Elsewhere this week… Snooki thought she was pregnant!

She got this idea in her head because she actually vomited after many days in a row of drinking.

It’s true: Snooki vomited!

“Nicole never throws up,” JWOWW said in shock, leading her and her friend to assume Nicole was expecting.

So they ran out to get a pregnancy test.

am i preggers?

“Me and Jionni are trying to have a baby, so maybe I’m pregnant!” Snooki said to the camera. “If it says no, I’m gonna be really upset. I really want a baby.”

(Editor’s Note: Maybe you shouldn’t have been drinking SO hard if you were trying. Just saying/judging.)

In the end, the test came back negative, and Snooki was bummed.

“Why did I throw up like that?” she wondered, apparently forgetting that she had been gulping down vodka seltzers for four days straight.



Jersey Shore Sneak Peek: Does Ronnie Magro Cheat on Jen Harley?

While most of us breathe a sigh of relief that Ronnie Magro and Jen Harley aren't engaged, that doesn't mean that he's being smart.

It wasn't long ago that he got into huge trouble with Jen for his hot tub adventures.

On this new Jersey Shore: Family Vacation sneak peek, Ronnie is getting into another hot tub with another woman. Oh boy …

In his confessional interview, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro sounds confident.

To hear him tell it, he's not going to follow his horniest impulses and make a fool out of himself again.

"Listen, I’ve seen a lot of girls in bathing suits. I’ve seen a lot of girls without bathing suits," Ronnie says.

By his way of thinking, he's been desensitized to beautiful women in very little clothing.

"So, another girl in a bathing suit isn’t really that tempting," Ronnie claims.

Sure. Millions of years of evolutionary instinct screaming bang or die in his ear will be easy to resist.

"And I’m not going to go down that road again," Ronnie insists.

Now, one of the benefits of editing is comedic timing.

In this case, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation cuts to Angelina Pivarnick‘s friend, Lindsay.

Lindsay looks drop-dead gorgeous in her bikini.

Everyone exclaims "Yes!" as she enters the room, even though she covers up her turquoise two-piece.

Ronnie, however, is shown rolling over onto his face, as if to avoid looking at her.

His friends then rib him for blushing in Lindsay's presence.

"Ronnie is getting a weird look in his eye around Jewish Barbie," Vinny G points out.

He's not optimistic about Ronnie's decision-making skills.

"I know this look," Vinny says. "Usually that leads to bad decisions."

Vinny summarizes: "This is not good."

Ronnie decided to volunteer to accompany Lindsay to the hot tub.

As Pauly D characterizes: "Ronnie's gonna check the water, and make sure it's … make sure it's wet."

As Pauly's words suggest, there is no actual need for Ronnie to accompany Lindsay out to the tub.

In case there was any doubt about Ronnie's relationship status when this scene was filmed, Lindsay brings it up.

"So you’re still not single, yet?" Lindsay asks.

This is a smart move on her part — bringing it up first.

Ronnie doesn't appear to give any sort of verbal answer in the clip. So, correct.

"You have to be happy," Lindsay says, though we cannot confirm that she was directly responding to that topic.

(Reality shows and their notorious editing, folks)

As all of this is happening, Ronnie and Lindsay do not have any actual privacy.

Not only are cameras still on them, but Ronnie's friends are watching, too.

Now, we've all been the friend who's had a few drinks and peers through the window nosily as their friend maybe hooks up.

But Ronnie's friends are vocally concerned about his decision-making skills.

Considering how poorly Jen seems to take even the appearance of his cheating, they hate to see him blunder again.

(Last time, it even involved a hot tub)

As toxic as Ronnie's relationship with Jen was, this doesn't seem like the right way for him to end things.

Only with the new episode will we see how poor Ronnie's judgment really was.

Jersey Shore Recap: “She’s a F-cking Psycho!”

We nearly saw Vinny Guadagnino’s penis on the latest episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

But while this veteran castmate thankfully kept his junk in his pants, Vinny let it all come out when discussing his feelings toward former fling Angelina Pivarnick.

Seriously, the guy just WENT OFF on her. Scroll down to find out why…

It’s been clear for a few weeks now that Angelina still has a thing for Vinny, following their hook up eight years ago.

(Yes, eight years ago! These people have been in our lives for a very long time.)

On Thursday night, however, Vinny made it clear that Angelina lust for him was not reciprocated after the group went out for dinner and Angelina would not leave him alone.

At one point, after taunting Vinny and alleging that he’s the one obsessed with her, Angelina grabbed Vinny’s crotch.

And he was so NOT down with it.

“I hate that girl. I’m done with that girl, seriously. She went too far. I’m done being nice to her,” he screamed in response, adding:

“She’s f-cking psycho.”

Snooki and JWOWW were encouraging Angelina (who’s engaged, by the way) to simply “hate f-ck” Vinny, but even they backed off once they saw the state Guadagnino was actually in.

The final straw was when Angelina said Vinny was attracted to her because, in her mind, she reminded Vinny of his mother.

grabbed my crotch

“You’re obsessed with me,” Angelina told Vinny over dinner, turning the knife in deeper by continuing:

“You literally love me. Just admit it to everybody here that you’re obsessed with me. You should just confess your love in front of everybody.”

Vinny called her “delusional” and told her to “shut up” multiple times; nevertheless, Angelina persisted. And then she crossed a line.

“You want a woman like your mom. That’s what you want,” she said. “That’s why you love me so much, because I remind you of your mother.”


pissed vinny

“How dare you? How dare you?” Vinny later vented to the camera.

“I don’t care if Angelina compared herself to Kim Kardashian. I don’t care if you compare yourself to f-cking Beyonce. Do not ever compare yourself to my mother.”

He also made it as clear as could be to Angelina herself, telling his past lover:

“All I begged you to do is stop talking to me. You f-cking bring up my name every second.”

Still, Angelina kept interrupting.

“You’re obsessed with me. You love me. You literally love me. You wanna marry me. You literally wanna marry me,” she said.

Vinny eventually snapped, yelling “COME AT ME, BRO!” — until The Situation calmed everyone down by asking about dessert.\

praying  with mike

Speaking of The Situation:

He invited JWOWW to attend his speech at his former rehab facility.

She was still sort of drunk from the night before, but she downed some Gatorade, tossed on some sweat pants and agreed to support her friend.

On his way there, Mike told Jenni a story about his struggle with drinking and how his now-wife stood by his side throughout the worst of times.

“There was one time where I was attempting to get sober,” Mike explained.

“I had a doctor and a nurse at my house. They were detoxing me, and after I think four or five days, I had the ‘f-ck its,’ they call it, where you’re like, ‘F-ck it, I don’t want this anymore. I wanna go party. I wanna feel better.’

“So I jumped in my car, and Lauren jumped in her vehicle. I was trying to get away from her, so there was a bit of speeding going on, a little bit of a car chase.

“Eventually, a cop pulled up beside me, and I actually said to the cop that there’s a crazy fan following me.”


Continued The Situation:

He didn’t entertain it. He was just like, ‘Mike, you’re crazy.’

“But I actually said that [about] my girlfriend, who’s behind me trying to help me. That’s a good story for people to hear that because that was my crazy times. I could not escape her. She was determined.

“I turned around and went home and went through the detox process.”

And now Mike and Lauren are married.

We don’t often say this when it comes to Jersey Shore, but: How sweet, right?!?


Jersey Shore Recap: Snooki Gets WASTED!

The cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation was tasked with its most important mission of all-time this week:

Finding a new home to crash in for awhile.

As you’ll find out below, the residence needed to include at least one prominent feature — and as you’ll also find out below, Snooki can really drink!

snook drinks

First, however, she and JWOWW paid a visit to an extremely pregnant Deena Cortese.

She explained to her friends how she recently had a scare and was subsequently ordered to be on bed rest until her next checkup.

Describing the “scariest moment” of her life, Deena said she began bleeding randomly about halfway through her pregnancy.

She assured her fellow MTV stars that she was fine now, but she would be unable to join them on the aforementioned house search.

“I totally get it because I was pregnant once,” a sad Snooki told the camera, possibly forgetting that she actually has two kids.

From there, it was Deena and JWOWW’s turn to fill Snooki in on everything that went down in Atlantic City a few days before, including Ronnie Ortiz-Magro’s insane blowup with Jen Harley over … well… nothing at all, really.

There was also the matter of the Staten Island love triangle that formed among Vinny Guadagnino, Angelina Pivarnick and Angelina’s fiance, Chris.


Speaking of that latter storyline:

In a later scene, Angelina was telling Chris about her forthcoming stay in the new Shore House when Vinny popped up in conversation.

Chris was pretty chill about him at first, but then… not so much.

“When you were out having your guys’ day, did you guys talk about anything serious?” Angelina asked.

“Vinny was saying something like, ‘You seem like a normal guy, so what are you gonna marry Angelina for?'” Chris responded.

“Why’s he asking you that?” Angelina asked prior to answering her own question. “Because he secretly loves me. And you know what? I don’t blame him for loving me because he should love me.”

“How do we keep coming back to the same topic?” Chris shot back. “Maybe you’re in love with him.”

“Chris, shut up,” Angelina said. “Ew! Gross! Hell no. You’re an ass.”

snook and ron

But enough about them.

We now turn to the home Snooki found on Craigslist, a lovely looking abode that was only missing one key element: a beach!

Ronnie met up with his pal there and the two proceeded to get totally sloshed.

After Snooki failed to get new intel out of Ronnie about Jen, she headed to a club and danced up a storm.

She also convinced Angelina to go straight from the airport to this establishment, leading to her hilariously showing up with, like, 9 suitcases.


“Dren has arrived at dinner,” Vinny says during a meal that featured Snooki choosing to drink instead of eat seafood.

“I haven’t seen Dren make an appearance at dinner in a long time. Now the vacation has begun,” he added of his pal’s drunken personality.

“I’m drunk bitch. What do you want from me?” Snooki replied.

Nothing else. We want nothing else from you at all, Snook.

Jersey Shore Recap: The Wrath of Jen Harley

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation did not kick off on Thursday night by playing the theme music from Jaws.

But it might as well have.

When we last left off these drinking buddies, they were preparing for the arrival of Jen Harley, who Ronnie invited to hang out despite the fact that she had (allegedly) just dragged him down the road from a car.

stunned ronnie

(NOTE: This episode was filmed months ago, prior to the latest assault accusations against Harley.)

Moreover, the last time Harley was part of the group, she (allegedly) got physical with Ronnie and got thrown out of Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas.

So, as you might expect, tension was running a bit high for her arrival in Jersey.

The stars were out to dinner when she got to Atlantic City.

After she delivered a few casual side hugs to everyone at the table, there was a whole lot of awkward silence untill JWOWW broke it hilariously by uttering:

“Your mug shot — you look hot!”

We’re not sure if we agree (see below), but the ice-breaking line worked and dinner commenced without incident.

Following the meal, the team got all ready to watch DJ Pauly D do his thing.

They were all staying at Harrah’s, but a Caesars Group hotel rep showed up and asked to speak to both Ronnie and Jen.

As it turns out, the latter was banned from all Caesars Group properties due to her actions in Sin City, but she was permitted to remain on the premises after she and Ronnie convinced the rep everything would remain calm.

“We’ve been going through anger management and therapy on our own,” Jen said.

with j h

Ronnie told his pals that the issue had to do with Jen forgetting her ID, although no one believes him.

But whatever. It was off to the club to have some fun!

And for the real drama to begin.

While enjoying Pauly D’s performance, the group was dancing and laughing and drinking and having such a great time that they almost forgot how dysfunctional Ronnie and Jen could be.

Correction: How dysfunctional they always are.

Jen got wasted, Ronnie told her to stop drinking and then the following exchange occurred:

no shot for you

And, with that, Jen was gone.


Elsewhere on the episode, Angelina Pivarnick opened up to JWoww, Deena Cortese and The Situations’s fiancee, Lauren, at brunch.

The topic? Her abusive upbringing.

“My dad and me — we’re like — we’re decent,” Angelina said, adding in detail:

“My childhood was not easy. Our parents didn’t have a good relationship. My father was a cheater. He was an abusive father. He was never a father to me growing up as a kid.

“He met my mother in court because my father was always in and out of jail.

“When I was born, my father was in jail. He only had me because it was gonna give him a lesser jail sentence, so he was like, ‘Oh, lemme have a daughter with a woman that I don’t even love.'”

at brunch

Wow, huh?

Heavy, heavy stuff.

Lauren attempted to suggest that perhaps this was simply Angelina’s “perspective” on the situation, but Angelina maintained that’s “exactly” what her father told her.

“Hearing from Angelina her daddy issues is heartbreaking ‘cause it makes sense as to why she’s very codependent,” JWOWW told cameras. “I feel really bad for how I treated Angelina and for how I judged her.”

So while one relationship took another turn for the crazy and dangerous, at least another one was maybe salvaged this week.

We’ll leave you on that positive note.


Jersey Shore Recap: “This is Next Level Mindf-ckery”

A major secret was revealed on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation this week.

And a major bombshell was dropped.

Ready for a recap of events, which mostly served as a warm-up for what looks to be the most insane episode of all-time next Thursday night? Let’s do this…

The installment centered around Deena Cortese and husband Christopher Buckner hosting a gender reveal party at their home in The Garden State.

“I can’t wait anymore. I’m dying,” Deena said while waiting for a color-coded smoke signal to alert her and her loved ones to the sex of her impending child.

Ronnie Ortiz-Magro had not told anyone he was coming to the event, but he showed up nevertheless — keep that in mind, okay?

First, however, blue smoke rose up in the air, Chris screamed “YEAH!” and Deena explained why they were both so pleased to discover they were having a son.

“Now I can name my son after Chris and my dad,” said Cortese, whose father passed away in June of 2016.

it's blue!

Ronnie, meanwhile, actually pulled Deena aside and touched our hearts by telling her it was important for him to be on hand.

He felt awful that he missed her father’s funeral back in the day.

Of course, the last his friends had seen of Ronnie, he had been dragged by a car down the street and was all over the news due to this literal run-in with baby mama Jen Harley.

“I feel like I’m seeing a ghost,” Snooki said of his appearance at the party, while Vinny compared Ronne to Bigfoot for a similar reason.


“It was an accident,” insisted Ronnie, adding that he and Harley (who share a young daughter named Ariana) are somehow still trying to work things out.

“What the hell is this kid doing?” Vinny asked during a confessional.

The roommates then gathered to celebrate the birthdays of The Situation and Pauly D at a Dave & Busters.

Appropriately, Mike got a cheeseburger cake, while Pauly got an Italian flag cake.

After going to town on the “foods,” the honorees opened their gifts.

Among other items, Mike received a police hat (LOL because he’s off to prison for tax evasion) and Pauly received a bedazzled megaphone.

Did the group want to go to Atlantic City with him for his next gig, Pauly wondered?

Everyone except Snooki said they were in: Deena with Chris; Mike with his fiancee, Lauren; Angelina Pivarnick with her fiance; and Ronnie said Jen would meet them there.

Wait, WHAT?!?

silly ron

The clique was was stunned.

JWOWW even spit out her wine!

Hadn’t Harley just been arrested for domestic battery after she allegedly hit Ronnie in the face and dragged him with her car?!?

That’s a rhetorical question. The answer is yes.

“Can I get everyone’s attention for a second,” Ronne said during the group’s steak dinner in Atlantic City?

“So, obviously, there’s a lot of stuff that’s been going on with me and Jen, and she is in town and she’s here, and I would love for her to be with us this weekend.

Would you guys mind if she would come to Pauly’s gig tomorrow and just hang out? We’re all a family. I wanna put it out there, and I don’t wanna make people feel uncomfortable.”

upset jwoww

JWOWW spit out some more wine at this point and Vinny killed us by adding:

“I mean, she can come. I’ve always wanted to be on TMZ!”

“What the f-ck, Ron?” Jenni later told cameras.

“You didn’t go to Seaside ‘cause you were dragged by a car, and now you’re like, ‘Yeah, be cool with her.’ Like, I don’t know where to go with this. This is next level mindf-ckery.”

Despite Ronnie assuring his pals that it was alll good because he and Jen were attending couples therapy, Vinny also had his doubts.

“Ron is telling us that the fighting with Jen has ended,” he said in a confessional, concluding:

“That’s like him saying that the fighting with Sam has ended, which we all know has never ended. Obviously, we’re all terrified. He’s gonna do what he wants anyway, so there’s not much we can do.”

And, with that basically, we faded to black.

Return next week to find out what happened when Harley actually arrived in Atlantic City!


Jen Harley: Ronnie Magro Needs to Quit Jersey Shore NOW!

If you’ve been watching Jersey Shore Family Vacation, you’re probably well aware that the relationship between Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Jen Harley is far from healthy.

Ron is prone to fits of anger (or “ron-pages,” if you prefer), but for the most part, fans have piled the bulk of the blame on Jen — and for good reason.

After all, this is the woman who dragged Ron in her car during an argument, leaving him badly injured.

The cause of the altercation was Jen’s previous batsh-t behavior, which includes disappearing with their daughter and sending Ron on a mad search across Las Vegas, like he was stuck in some completely non-funny version of The Hangover.

Needless to say, Jen and Ron have a lot of problems.

In fact, it sounds as though there are only two paths forward for little Ariana’s parents at this point:

They can either break up or begin therapy and commit themselves to the hard work of tearing their relationship down to its foundations and beginning anew.

Of course, Jen doesn’t see it that way.

She thinks the solution to her many romantic problems is easy and obvious:

According to Jen, it’s all Ron’s fault, and he can fix everything by simply quitting Jersey Shore.

Cutting off one’s sole source of income shortly after welcoming a child may sound foolish, but Jen explained the brilliance behind her plan while she was bored on a recent flight and decided to host an Instagram AMA:

“So bored! Another 2 hours left!! Entertain me! Ask away, be nice,” Jen wrote.

Fans were quick to oblige, and while most of the questions were along the lines of “WTF is your deal?” some offered more nuanced inquiries:

“I know you won’t answer this but how do you like being on Jersey Shore,” one fan asked.

“Honestly the show has been the route [sic] to all our problems,” Jen answered.

“Would you want Ron to quit JS to make ur relationship better and peaceful?” another asked.

Ronnie and Jen Harley

“DUH,” Jen replied, in not-at-all-obnoxious fashion.

In case there was any doubt about Jen’s distaste for the show that made her (in)famous, she went on to make it quite clear that she’s not a fan:

“How do you feel seeing yourself on Jersey Shore?” another follower asked.

“I legit do not watch the show.”

Hmm … you might want to tune in this week, Jen.

The show will give you an idea as to why total strangers cross the street when they see you approaching.

Just a thought.


Jersey Shore Recap: Vinny vs. Angelina vs. Common Sense

They… are… back!

Well, they were back.

But. technicality aside, the cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation returned to Seaside Heights on Thursday night’s new episode of this MTV revival, hunkering back down in their former quarters and, well…

… getting very drunk!

battling vnny

After the group took numerous shots to celebrate their reunion in the Garden State, Snooki spotted a note from Danny. It read:

“Got you some drinks and food. Have a good time. Please don’t trash the house.”

LOL, right? Did he forget to whom he was writing?!?

While getting a family dinner ready, a rather pregnant Deena asked Snooki to make her her “famous grilled cheese.”

No problem. Easy enough.

From there, The Situation insisted on making his favorite Funfetti cake and all seemed perfectly calm when the clique sound down to dine together.

But then Angelina asked if she could make a speech, Vinny jokingly turned her down, a bit of banter ensued — and then things got ugly.

Pivarnick seemingly referred either to her time as a high school classmate’s or Vinny, or to the time the two smushed, when she told the table that she had a “loaded gun” in her “chamber.”

What kind of dirt was she implying she had on her housemate?

“Well, I don’t have a chamber on you because I don’t think about you ever,” Vinny replied.

“Don’t lie! You think about me day, f-cking afternoon and night,” Angelina clapped back


“These two got beef right here,” said The Situation, while Snooki chimed in as follows:

“I am praying that Angelina and Vinny hook up. There is so much sexual tension.”

And this is when Angelina let her bomb drop, screaming at Vinny:

“You know you used to hit me up back in the day and f-cking try to f-ck me! And say you wanted to take me out on a date and f-cking get to know me!”

Oh. That was it?

Yes. But it was enough to cause everyone to lose it.

d pauly

“This is why I hate having this girl here,” Vinny said.

“If you don’t like me, my question to you is, why’d you bang me then? Even if it was a hate bang, you wouldn’t hate bang a girl you didn’t think was attractive,” she hilariously responded.

Is this how folks flirt in Staten Island, Paul D wondered?

Angelina eventually shot up from the table and started chasing Vinny around the house because he called her a “f-ck.”

The argument only escalated when Sitch handed her a ketchup bottle as ammunition and Jenni gave Vin bottles of salad dressing and mustard.

Oh, yes: FOOD FIGHT!

oh, woww

Both Angelina and Vinny ended up covered in condiments when the latter reached for the fire extinguisher. He positively blasted Angelina with it.

“Yo, Danny is not gonna be happy about this,” Mike said amid the obviously planned chaos.

“No!” Snooki yelled back. “We’re like older now! We’re like 30!”

After an awkward exchange with Danny the following day at the T-shirt store, the group got back to the Shore House and Sitch ate his beloved ake.

However, for some werd reason, Angelina dared herself to stick her bare butt in the delicacy. And then she did just that and then she chased the guys around the house.

And that was basically that.

The writers really need to work on some actual storylines, don’t they?
