"I know Vinny truly never meant to hurt Elicea or anything, but sometimes, shit comes off that way," Jenni told TooFab in a recent interview. "I laughed my ass off watching Vinny be so transparent with his girlfriend 'cause I'm like, just because you're transparent does not mean you're doing the right thing! It's just mind-boggling to me. Literally mind-boggling. But what can you say to a guy who thinks he does no wrong? Sometimes it takes playbacks for you to be like, 'Oh, yeah, maybe I shouldn't have said or done that. It looks more disrespectful than I meant.'"
"He was very transparent, but he doesn't realize that some things are still crossing the line even though he didn't mean to harm [her]," Jenni added. "He still got girls' numbers, so expect to get yelled at."
When asked if she believed Elicea was also angry with the way she was portrayed on the show, Jenni said, "Oh, I'm sure."
"Our living situation is completely not normal," she explained. "You're in a house with no cellphone, no internet, no TV, you're going out... So you're having all this fun, and you can have your cake and eat it, too -- but you have people to answer to. It's different. It's weird. And I'm sure knowing that [your show's] gonna air in 180 countries doesn't help a relationship, either."
Regarding Ronnie's relationship with on-again, off-again girlfriend/baby mama Jen Harley, Jenni said, "I'm always rooting for everyone's relationships. Good, bad or indifferent, I really hope that him and Jen make it work, but Ronnie's gotta act like a boyfriend. As of right now, he still is. I just hope long term, he still does and that he doesn't forget he has a girlfriend."
Jenni, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Deena Cortese seemingly had no issues remaining faithful to their husbands while filming "Family Vacation," which Jenni believes is because of "two reasons."
"I think Ron and Vinny were in relatively new relationships, and -- I don't wanna say guys are guys because that's so stereotypical -- but we're also all married women. If they were married, I'd hope for damn sure that they'd act the way that we did, but they're not. So you kinda gotta take the relationships at face value. They weren't as serious, and they acted the way that they did."
"Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
