Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Zachary Carpinello don’t exactly have the simplest backstory.
After all, most relationships can’t recover from a cheating scandal!
So it’s no surprise that things between them aren’t always perfect. Now, JWoww is opening up about how they’re making it work.
This time last year, JWoww and Zack Carpinello were in the midst of a messy breakup.
News of the split came to light the day after an episode of Jersey Shore aired, wherein Zack and Angelina’s ongoing flirtation was caught on camera. In the episode, Zack can be seen hugging Angelina’s waist and touching her butt while clubbing in Las Vegas, all while JWoww was passed out.
Later, Angelina took the news to her fiance, which obviously didn’t make Chris too happy, either.
After the episode aired, JWoww took to Instagram to share her updates and feelings.
“After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt,” her emotional update read. “I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me.”
She went on:
“For 5 months I was kept in the dark about this. For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a story line that will forever haunt me. My heart hurts on so many levels. One thing I learned from tonight’s episode is know your value. Don’t ever lower your standards.”
JWoww spent months dropping hints about her new relationship across social media before she took her relationship with Zack public back in April. She then went on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s podcast It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey to spill the happy news.
“We’re filming Jersey Shore right now and we nicknamed [Zack] 24,” JWoww said on the episode of the podcast. Snooki noted that JWoww had been “going through some sh*t,” but that she’d “never seen [JWoww] more happier and more herself than this moment right now.”
But there’s no truer test to a relationship than putting it all on TV – so it’s no wonder JWoww was hesitant about Zack appearing on Family Vacation.
