When it comes to evaluating her time spent on the Jersey Shore, Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s biggest regret – unlike some of her costars – has nothing to do with a nasty night on the town or a not-too-sober stay in the “Smush Room.”
“I actually regret the fights that I did get in with Sam because I was in the same position she was a few years ago,” Farley said recently on Sirus radio’s The Morning Mash Up!, referring to Giancola’s up-and-down relationship with Ronnie Magro. “I had a boyfriend lie and cheat, and I did not believe my girlfriends when they told me.”
Farley also knows a thing or two about rough breakups – something she addresses in her book, The Rules According to JWOWW: Shore-Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition to the Curb. She says she’s currently dealing with “legal things” with ex-boyfriend Tom Lippolis.
“I came home [from the show], and I was like, ‘What the hell is wrong with me?’ ” she says. “I was like, ‘Why do I find guys like this?’ ”
But there is one person who always has her back, even when the cameras aren’t rolling. Farley says her friendship with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is the real deal, and the duo recently shot a pilot for a spin-off show that would document their antics outside of Seaside Heights, N.J.
“We talk every day,” she says of their friendship. “I spent Christmas Eve with her and her family, and that’s how we do. If I could take one thing out of the show, that would be a life-long friend.”
