The episode ended with the cast deciding they were willing to give their one-time costar another chance, but wanted to get to know her better off-camera, after filming the current season. The cliffhanger showed Jenni breaking the news to Angelina, whose reaction we won't see until next week.
"I was kinda bummed out. I was like, damn, I was having such a good time. I really wanted to stay and I really wanted to hang out with them and get to know them in Miami," Angelina told TooFab. "But when she dropped the bomb on me like that, I was taken aback. I was kind of upset, because I was having such a good time. I wish I could be around them more and get to know them more. When she said that, I was really upset. I was like, shit, this is it, I don't know what's going to happen now."
That being said, she said she understood where they were coming from. "I didn't even fight back with them about it. I understood. That just shows you how much more mature I am and how I've grown as a person after all these years," she said. "The old Angelina would have fought back like, 'No, I'm staying here, I'm hanging out with you guys, I don't care.' But I understood. I was like, 'OK, I'm upset, but at the end of the day I get where you guys are coming from. If that's you feel, that's fine.'"
In the time since filming wrapped, Angelina has been in contact with some of the gang. "Somewhat," she said. "Certain people, no. Certain people, yes." She also has yet to be invited to the group chat JWoww made it a point to say she wasn't a part of.
"No! I'm not part of it. I'm not, but I wanna be, like damn," she explained. "Of course it stung a little bit. In my mind, I'm like, 'What do they talk about in it? What goes on it in?' I want to know what goes on in it, I want to be part of it, but right now I'm not part of it. That's a goal."
One reason she's probably on the outs: the situation with Jenni isn't exactly civil.
"Me and Jenni, we have a lot of stuff to square away. There's a lot of stuff that has been spoken about in the media, on social media and it's unfortunate, but as far as me and her, we're not in a good place right now," she said. The two have been trading barbs on Twitter and Instagram, after Angelina dedicated an image of a "Jersey Whore" mug to JWoww.
"Hopefully one day we will be. I don't know what the future holds, I don't know if me and her are ever going to make amends," she continued. "But I saw her talking a lot of shit and I spoke my shit back, it's crazy because we're in our 30s, so it's like, we're still fighting right now? But hey, if she feels some type of way about me, I guess I feel some type of way about her. I'm not going to sit there and be a doormat, you know what I mean?"
Seeing how things are between them right now, it's no surprise that Angelina also said Jenni was the cast member she was most nervous to come face to face with when she popped up on the new season. "Look at how she acts, I mean, that's just self explanatory," she explained. "Just kinda like, I had a feeling that was gonna happen. I knew when it was happening, like I've seen this shit, I knew it was going to happen. That's just her, so I wasn't surprised at all."
She also had to settle some beef with Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who was angry about comments Angelina made about her plumped up lips in the press. "I had a feeling that was going to come up. Obviously, it was something that was bothering her for a long time," she told TooFab. "When that did come up, I was like, damn, what the hell? Does this really have to be brought up right now? But it was something that was bothering me, it was something that was bothering her. I felt like she took my information about the doctor that she used and she didn't even thank me and I didn't appreciate that. I really wanted her to thank me for my connections and I wanted her to make me feel like a person and I felt like she didn't make me feel like a person."
After Angelina apologized for her comments, the two bonded during a alcohol-filled Meatball Day. "After we got drunk, she was really cool. I never got to know her, so this time around was different for me," said Pivarnik. "I was like, wow, she's so cool. Deena, I've seen her before, I met her before, so I kinda knew she and I didn't have have any problems. But as far as me and Nicole, I had no idea that we were doing to be as cool as we did become. It's pretty amazing, right?"
Speaking of Deena, Angelina also scored major brownie points after Cortese started crying over getting thrown in the pool. To make Deena feel like she wasn't the only one being targeted by her roommies, Angelina convinced Ronnie to throw her in as well. It worked, but came at a cost.
"I was like, let me just take one for the team for her. I felt bad, she does cry a lot. If that doesn't show that I'm trying to be a friend here and have them get to know I'm a good person, I don't know what is," she said. "Because damn, I just got my weave put in and I'm getting thrown into a pool. My weave was not cheap and if I'm willing to destroy my weave for you, that shows you I'm trying to be girls with you. My weave was not cheap at all!"
While her future on the show remains uncertain, Angelina told TooFab she's "100 percent" down to return for the second season of "Family Vacation."
"I had such a good time. I feel like they don't know me. I'm basically like fresh blood, right? I'm like a new person," she explained. "I'd like for them to get to know me and I feel like that would be the time to do it."
