There Was Drama at the Wedding Due to a Speech Angelina’s Costars Gave
Although the wedding episode hasn’t aired yet, there is already plenty of information circulating about the drama that went down between Angelina and her female Jersey Shore castmates.
During the wedding, Deena Cortese, Nicole Polizzi, and Jenny Farley got up to give a bridesmaid speech which the other wedding guests deemed mean-spirited, going so far as to boo the women off stage. The speech, which called Angelina insults including the “dump to their island” and “the fly to their shit,” left her in tears on her big day.
After audio of the speech began circulating online, many criticized the trio for their comments. Addressing the negative attention, Deena Cortese wrote on social media “Listen I understand your all upset about our speech but we also included nice things in it as well. We thought since Angelina always says ‘I never take myself seriously’ she would truly laugh at the stuff we said .. clearly we were wrong… our speech was not meant to be malicious .. we actually did a lot while filming with Angelina for her wedding. I’m not a mean person and our intentions were never negative. We truly thought she was going to laugh and right after we went into how lucky we are to have her in our lives and she’s the sister we needed in the house.”
Shortly after their wedding, Angelina posted a photo from the day on Instagram, writing to her new husband in the caption “We def need a total redo of this day for many reasons. I love u and your companionship.”
Angelina’s Wedding Controversy Is Allegedly One of the Reasons Snooki Is not Returning for Season 4 of the Show
In December 2019, shortly after Angelina’s wedding, Snooki announced on her podcast that she would not be returning to the reality show for season 4. She said “I just can’t do it anymore. Like literally leaving my kids to film is really really hard on me. I try and quit every single day. I just hate being away from the kids… I don’t like partying three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore.”
According to Hollywood Life, her kids may not have been the only motivation for her departure. An insider told the outlet that the events of Angelina’s wedding played a role in her decision, revealing “Nicole felt the show was heading in a direction that she wasn’t happy with so left the show… She did not like how everything played out after Angelina’s wedding and feels she’s being painted unfairly.”
On her podcast, Snooki addressed the wedding drama, explaining that the controversial toast was given at the insistence of the Jersey Shore producers. She said “Well, we’re not really supposed to talk about but…f**k it, it’s my podcast. I literally told producers, ‘I’m not going to do a speech because I’m not comfortable doing one; I don’t think we should be doing one. [I said] ‘We’re not going to make a mockery of this wedding’ and of course we were forced to do something we didn’t want to do.”
