Jenni “JWoww” Farley started 2020 by coming out swinging at fans who called her a bully in 2019, and for dating her younger boyfriend Zack Carpinello.
The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star started off her year-end recap on Instagram by reminding her followers that they only “get to see a tiny piece” of her on TV or through social media and that those who call her a bully have “no f**king clue.”
“ … How I’m edited on TV can sometimes suck but I will always keep it [100 percent] … even if that means I come off wild in an episode,” Jenni wrote. “Some of the scenes you see are condensed because there’s only so many minutes in an episode. Also, sometimes … I’m just a bitch … .”
Jenni went on to defend her often-criticized relationship with her boyfriend Zack—–also known as “24” by ‘Jersey Shore’ fans, due to his younger age—– crediting him for playing a role in her personal growth in 2019.
“I wouldn’t be where I am today w/out personal growth, friends, family and yes even 24 … because again, you saw a glimmer of my relationship on TV when we were 6 weeks in and you haven’t really seen it since,” she wrote.
As fans may recall, Jenni reportedly split with Zack in October after he was shown getting a little touchy-feely with Angelina Pivarnick on an episode of ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.’ The day after the episode aired, Zack apologized to Jenni on social media, promising that what went down would never happen again and also apologizing to Angelina for his actions. Despite calling both Zack and Angelina “idiots” for what happened, Jenni and Zack reunited days later.
“As a mother of two and a will that will not break, I would never accept anything but greatness by my side and that’s what 24 proved … To be everything I needed when I thought I didn’t need anyone,” Jenni continued in her Instagram post.
As The Ashley previously told you, Jenni and her ex-husband Roger Mathews finalized their divorce in August after Jenni filed for divorce in September 2018. The filing and finalization book-ended a tumultuous year for the pair, during which they trashed each other online, made abuse claims, called the cops, took out restraining orders and took part in custody drama regarding their two children, five-year-old Meilani and three-year-old Greyson.
