They say you can’t go home again, and I would think that adage would certainly ring true for those crazy orange guidettes and gorilla juice heads who entertained us on the Jersey Shore. Gracious, I miss them (well, most of them).
Of course, it won’t shock anyone to learn that I was mistaken. You can go home again if you’re Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, and your one-time home is a wood-paneled wonderland complete with a duck phone and astroturf patio that smells of Sunday dinners, regret, and Axe body spray.
I know I say it all the time, but I truly, truly mean it–I love those crazy kids from Jersey Shore. Perhaps when I was first watching it, my obsession (like most everyone’s I assume) stemmed from watching a drunken, orange, fist-pumping train wreck. Of course, the longer I tuned in to see their shenanigans, the more I realized I wanted to be included in those elaborate Sunday dinners with a fun (albeit crazy) group of actual friends.
To me, the most amazing part of the guidos and guidettes’ relationship is that they didn’t know each other before the show started, and the series turned them into genuine friends…it’s usually the exact opposite when you think of a reality cast, right? The show ended in 2012, and while the cast has gone on to new endeavors, they are often found supporting each other (well, most of them anyway). Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “J-Woww” Farley became quick besties during the six seasons of Jersey Shore and have gone on to share the joys of motherhood and marriage, not to mention spin-offs! Now Snooki, a mother of two, is celebrating her friend who is expecting baby number two with new husband Roger Mathews.
Last night the Oscar Awards celebrated some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Per the usual, despite their highly dramatic performances, reality TV was not honored. Alas some of our favorite reality stars also happen to be actors and actresses. Actors and actresses whose contributions to the academy has NOT been recognized with a golden statue. UGH.
Below is our list of Reality TV star/actors and actresses who haven’t been nominated by the Academy… YET! Just a note: Eileen Davidson of the Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills has actually won an Emmy Award, she’s being included in this list even though she’s already thanked the audience for really, really liking her.
Remember when Nicole (Snooki) Polizzi and Jenni (JWoww) Farley were just two single gals living the Jersey Shore dream? Long gone are the days of Smush Rooms and hot tub debauchery. These days, Snooki and JWoww are more likely to be found running after their young children with their husbands, Jionni LaValle and Roger Matthews. Mother to Lorenzo and Giovanna, Snooki finds herself getting her inner Martha Stewart on as she navigates the world of DIY kids’ birthday parties and family crafts. Meanwhile JWoww is busy raising daughter Meilani while she and hubby Roger await the birth of their baby boy this spring! Reality Tea, along with a handful of other media outlets, recently got a chance to sit down with the BFFs to chat about their new filter-free show “Snooki & JWOWW: Moms with Attitude,” on millennial mom-focused network Awestruck. As always, the ladies kept it real!
If you could deliver one message to your fans, what would it be?
Jenni: “My message is for all the millennial moms out there. I’m just all about standing your ground on what really matters to your children. I know in the last few years it’s been really hard for women because they get torn in so many directions or they get judged for how they raise their children – whether they’re pro-vaccine, anti-vaccine, pro-this, anti-that. I’m all for self confidence and standing your ground and what you truly believe in.”
Nicole: “Agreed. Also, we want to keep the realness on our show of who we are…we just want to be 100% real when it comes to who we are and our parenting, and being moms. But not being regular moms – we’re the cool moms! Just like, you know, Mean Girls. So, we’re good parents, but at the same time, we still make time for ourselves when we can. I think what makes you a great mom is you obviously dedicate all of your time to your kids, but you also need to make time for yourself.”
Don’t these tabloid people know that you should never, ever, piss off a pregnant woman? That is, unless you want to feel her wrath. That’s exactly what happened to Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley recently when she read a story about herself in Star Magazine that was clearly not true. The magazine, known for publishing fabricated stories, decided to share one with a “witness” who watched Farley get drunk while she was expecting. You can only imagine what happened next.
Let’s just say that the Snooki and JWoww star, who also just found out that she is expecting a baby boy, was not too happy with the magazine, and immediately went on a social media rant about the false story, blasting the magazine. What’d she say? Hop inside to find out!

Wait, already? Wasn’t it just yesterday that Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley revealed that she was expecting another baby? It sure does, but time certainly does seem to fly. Or maybe it’s because she just made the pregnancy announcement in October. And while she is due in May of 2016, Farley recently revealed that she and Roger found out whether or not she is having a boy or a girl this time around. It seems kind of soon, doesn’t it?
In any event, JWoww took to her website recently to share the news. “Roger and I have said from the beginning that, just like it was with Meilani, it does not matter which gender our baby is, as long as he or she is healthy. Still, we are so excited to be expecting a,” Farley wrote. But y’all have come inside to find out if it’s a boy or a girl.

Congratulations are in order for Roger Mathews and Jenni Farley. After a 3 year engagement, the Jersey Shore couple tied the knot yesterday in front of family and friends. But that’s not all. Roger and JWoww, who welcomed their first child, Meilani, in July 2014, shared exciting news with their wedding guests – they’re expecting baby #2 in May 2016.
Following the wedding, Roger and JWoww shared with E! News, “By far one of the best days of our lives outside of Meilani being born. So blessed to have our daughter share this day with us!”
Snooki wore two dresses, a traditional gown for the ceremony and a Gatsby-inspired dress (seen above) for the reception. Snooki and Jionni’s wedding will be featured on Snooki & JWoww. See more photos from the wedding below.
