It’s the fight of the century! Or at least, the fight we deserve to close out 2020 with. In a battle of reality TV stars that can only be considered a gift from Santa himself Angelina Pivarnick, also known as the “Staten Island Hampster” from Jersey Shore got into an insane screaming match with Ashley Martson, also known as “Trashly” by adoring fans of 90 Day Fiancé. Oh, did we mention it all went down at a charity event?
Now, WHY the two stars got into it is kind of unclear, but we think we have an answer — more on that later. To start with, these two barely share anything in common on the surface, but once you dig a little deeper, you realize that OF COURSE it’s these two that would publicly fight during a time of holiday cheer. Angelina Pivarnick is most famous for getting kicked off of Jersey Shore twice, and Ashley Martson caught her husband (Jay Smith, who is over a decade her junior) cheating on her while he was at work — and then tried to get him deported.
This is the kind of reality TV / real-world cross over event we have been waiting for.
Anyways, they were at a New York event together, hosted by their joint PR Rep — Johnny Donovan, of Tilt Media Works. Both reality stars were also used in promotional material for the event, along with the always lovely Tom Brooks of 90 Day Fiancé and Christian Estrada from Bachelor in Paradise.
This matters later, we promise.
Anyways, it was advertised as the Celebrity Christmas Party (yeah, okay), and the details are a little confusing. Accounts suggest that either Ashely and her friends were filming the Jersey Shore star, or that Angelina started filming first to provoke the one time 90 Day Fiancé cast member.
It got bad enough that there was a screaming match, one source said Ashley threatened Angelina, and glass was broken.
According to their joint PR rep, “They just don’t like each other”.
“The people filming were the ones that started the fight. Angelina was just trying to defend herself because she didn’t want to be filmed,” he said.
Of course, Ashley already tried to spin her side of the story.
In Ashley’s statement, she’s totally innocent, and Angelina just spent all night gossiping about her — but OBVIOUSLY, Ashley was the bigger person.
“I didn’t engage. It wasn’t the place for that. We were invited to the event to lift a group of underprivileged kids’ spirits during the holiday season, not to bring petty drama,” she told US.
If you believe that, I have a bridge you might want to buy. She went on to say that after the party, she went to dinner — where Angelina wasn’t invited but showed up anyway.
This is inconsistent with Donovan’s previous statements.
Anyways, Ashley states that Angelina continued to say “negative things” about her and that she eventually confronted Angelina.
We, however, have a very different theory about what happened that night.
