In a preview clip of Thursday's episode of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation," the retired hothead was fed up with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro having his head buried in his phone when he should have been hanging out with his friends in Las Vegas, so she took matters into her own drunk hands.
Last week, Angelina Pivarnick revealed to the group she had received a concerning message from Ronnie's baby mama, Jen Harley, saying she hadn't heard from Ron since his Cabo trip, which he unexpectedly extended, and that she wasn't sure what "condition" he was in. Jen also claimed that Ronnie had her blocked, which the roommates found odd. Who had he been texting this whole time?
After lots of tequila, Jenni pried Angelina's phone out of her hands to read the message verbatim. She was shocked. So was Deena Cortese. "Wow. So is he not really sober?" she asked, as Jenni explained, "That's why they're fighting."
"Sooo, is this an act?" Deena wondered, visibly growing more agitated. "It's an act!" Jenni maintained. They were both livid, but Angelina was more conflicted. "I try to be there for him," she explained, "but then that shit comes, and I'm like, 'What do I do?'"
"'I'm gonna be with my roomies, but I'm gonna be [texting] the whole time,'" Jenni said, mocking Ron. "What the f--k is he doing?! You know what I'm gonna do? I'm gonna f--king hit Jen up right now."
"I don't like being bullshit, I don't like being lied to," she told the camera, "so if you're not gonna tell me the truth, I'll find it out another way. Tequila's gonna get to the bottom of this."
Jenni later explained, "I honestly just want Ron to be real because this is giving me anxiety because it reminds me of last year in Vegas. I'm trying to avoid that." The blowup she was referring to was a wild one. It was back when Ronnie first started to open up to the group about how unstable his relationship with Jen really was.
"You chose that life! You chose that life!" Jenni shouted at Ron at the time. "You f--ked a crazy bitch! You got a crazy bitch pregnant!"
"Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on MTV.
