Jersey Shore star Jenni “JWoww” Farley and boyfriend Zack “24” Carpinello are back together since their break up over an incident with Angelina Pivarnick last season. Carpinello has posted several pictures of the MTV reality star since they reconnected.
As seen on last season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Farley and Carpinello split following a night at the club where he flirting with Angelina Pivarnick. During Season 3, some of Farley’s storyline focuses on her relationship after splitting from husband Roger Matthews.
“Jenni attempts to embrace her new life post-Roger, but his underhanded tactics have her uncharacteristically emotional,” her bio on the MTV website reads. “And after what happened between Zack a.k.a. 24 and Angelina, Jenni struggles to move forward with her relationship. But ultimately, she finds a new scapegoat for her boyfriend woes in a certain Keto Guido.”
The “Keto Guido” line is a reference to cast mate Vinny Guadagnino, who has embraced the low-carb, high-fat diet. Farley took issue with the way Guadagnino described the night to her, saying he told the guys a different story than what he told her. Thursday night’s episode will show Jenni try to work things out with Pivarnick during her bachelorette party in New Orleans and shift the blame toward Guadagnino.

Because you wake up every day wanting to be better than yesterday.”

A sneak peek clip of Thursday night’s episode shows Farley and Pivarnick working things out on Jersey Shore Family Vacation, while “The Meatballs”–Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Deena Cortese–listen to their discussion from the other room.
Pivarnick was surprised Farley came to her NOLA bachelorette party. “I don’t want to start but it looks like were going to do this so lets get it over with. There is a big elephant in the room and I don’t know if she’s gonna put it on me or say,” Pivarnick said to the MTV cameras. “So I want to see where her head is at.”
Farley, who reconciled with 24, was ready to make amends with Pivarnick. “Truthfully, I did not come down here to start drama,” she said. “We’re not in a great place and I don’t want any regrets and I don’t want to say I wasn’t a part of your weekend over something petty. So I’m here for you with all the bullshit aside.”
“That night, what you did, I have no right to be mad at you whatsoever,” Farley added. “It’s all on him.”
She got the full story the night the episode aired on TV. “I made him leave the house the day that it aired,” she added. “He has no excuse.”

Farley reasoned that she was drunk–they all were very intoxicated that night–and that the “Keto Guido” escalated things by telling her a different story than he relayed to everyone else.
Farley was embarrassed of the way she looked. “At the end of the day I come off like a psychotic person in Point Pleasant and fighting a battle that should have never have been fought over something that never existed,” she said. “All [Vinny] had to do was check me and say here’s what I saw and he never did that.
Pivarnick was ready to move forward. “I think this was such a huge misunderstanding. Everyone was wasted. It was Las Vegas,” she said. “I’m not a dick. But sometimes I can be selfish. I should have thought about what Jenni was feeling. She was hurting inside. I feel bad. I really do–that she’s feeling like that.”
“I think we should just fuck the drama,” the bride to be added. “There’s no drama here and just be happy.”
5. Jenni ‘Woww’ Farley Was Mortified When The Episode Aired in October
Even though they have been able to work things out, Farley was shocked when she saw how the incident between “24” and Pivarnick went down. She kicked him out of the house and issued a public statement about their breakup.
“After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt,” she wrote on October 10, 2019. “I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me. For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a storyline that will forever haunt me.”
“My heart hurts on so many levels,” Farley added. “One thing I learned from tonight’s episode is know your value. Don’t ever lower your standards.”
Aside from getting close to Pivarnick, the clip also showed him asking her inappropriate questions about her now husband, Chris Larangeria.
“I just met you, 24, and you’re literally grilling me about my relationship with Chris,” Pivarnick said about Carpinello to the MTV cameras in a confessional, as noted by CheatSheet.
“Like, bro. This kid is 24 years old, he knows nothing about relationships,” she added. “He’s probably been in none in his entire life. And another thing, too, he doesn’t know me. So what the fuck is he doing? He’s such a weirdo.”
