"What the f**k is up?"
Drama is making her way to the set of the Jersey Shore revival.
As it turns out, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Deena Nicole Cortese, DJ Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino aren’t the only MTV alums who will be bringing fist-pumping back on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. In a surprising twist, presumably concocted by producers for maximum conflict and tension in the house, one of the original cast members who was initially left off the reboot announcement will be reuniting with her former co-stars.
Who’s that knocking on the door? A “dirty little hamster,” of course!
Who’s that knocking on the door? Drama, of course!
As it turns out, another original member of the Jersey Shore gang has been added to the lineup last-minute. In a new teaser for the upcoming MTV revival, Angelina Pivarnick will be joining former roommates Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, DJ Pauly D, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino in their party house for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
As with all reunions, there’s bound to be some tension as the 31-year-old catches up with her ex-castmates. After all, The Situation infamously coined her a “dirty little hamster” when they lived together at Seaside Heights.
“So you think I’m a dirty little hamster?” Angelina confronts the 35-year-old when she shows up at the cast’s front door in Miami. This time around, she marches in with a suitcase — not the garbage bags she used to carry her stuff in during her Season 1 debut — in hand.
“Oh s**t! Who sent you?” the famous fist-pumper asks.
“What the f**k is up?” she quips as The Situation runs away. Meanwhile, Pauly D can be heard cackling in the background.
The gang’s all here
However, according to showrunner Sallyanne Solsano, Mike’s reaction was “priceless but nothing compared to the girls’.”
As fans know, Angelina did not get along with any of the cast members during her on-and-off appearances on the first and second season of the show. The Staten Island native was later permanently replaced by Deena Nicole Cortese, who became a fan-favorite as well as a close friend of the group.
As of now, the only member of the cast not involved in the reunion is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. Though she has not publicly stated why she declined the invitation to join the reboot, Snooki said the alum was presumably sitting out to avoid further conflict with ex-boyfriend Ronnie.
Angelina confirmed her shocking return to the series by retweeting her teaser. “I’m baaaaack bitches,” she tweeted, before also sharing a now-deleted photo of herself wearing a red hat which read: “MAKE THE JERSEY SHORE GREAT AGAIN.”
