Who says opposites attract?
Angelina Pivarnick and Justin Rego, who share the dubious distinction of being reality TV villains, apparently like what they see in each other – even if others might not – and have quietly begun dating.
Pivarnick is the much-maligned party girl on MTV’s Jersey Shore, while Rego is the rogue who was busted for allegedly having a girlfriend during Ali Fedotowsky’s season of ABC’s The Bachelorette.
A source close to Rego confirms the couple are dating and says: “They are taking things slow right now.”
Rego famously left The Bachelorette in disgrace, and said the whole experience was “a living hell”. Pivarnick, meanwhile, hasn’t fared much better on Jersey Shore, having quit the show in anger more than once.
