Following her early departure, yet again, on last week’s episode of Jersey Shore, 24-year-old Angelina Pivarnick is now speaking out on her time on the show.
In a new interview with UsWeekly, the Staten Island Dump reality star reveals she was “bullied” by her co-stars. “They never gave me a second shot,” Angelina says. “Just because you’re celebrities now and I left the first season does not mean I should be treated badly. It’s sad how people change.”
Apparently, things got so bad for Angelina, to the point that she is now seeing a therapist as she feels she was made a scapegoat for all the underlying problems in the house.
“I was bullied to the fullest sense,” she says. “Mike [The Situation] called me a dirty hamster, but I cleaned that house up and down. MTV never showed that. Snookiwould call me a whore. Mike and Vinny would call me fat… I would go in the bathroom and cry.”
Angelina, who is now back living in Staten Island with her mom and sister, reveals she can no longer watch the show. “It bothers me hearing the names they call me, and that it looks like I’m the backstabber,” she tells Us. “My head is really f–ked up; I see a therapist, I cry a lot. It’s probably going to take me a year to get over this. My mom got bleeding ulcers from the stress — it’s hard to watch her daughter go through what I did.”
As for her current relationship status with Jose, you know, the guy that got her a fossil watch, Angelina reveals he was just using her to get on TV. “When I came home,” she says. “I saw he wrote on Facebook, ‘I can’t wait to be on MTV!’ He was in it to be on TV! He called me the other day and said, ‘We could have been the next Sammi and Ronnie.’
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV. On the 11th episode of this season titled “Girls Like That,” Snooki and J-Woww decide to make amends with Sammi; Vinny pursues two groups of girls; and Mike’s antics annoy Snooki. It airs 10/9c.

A not so shocking new report by RadarOnline reveals that Jersey Shore’s break out star, Snooki, was hospitalized for suspected alcohol poisoning.
According to Radar, the scary near death incident occurred back in May while the cast was still filming the second season of the hit show in Miami.
A source who was on the set at the time tells Radar the 4’9″ reality star “was so drunk that she had to be carried out of the nightclub ‘Dream’ by the show’s producers.” Snooki was reportedly rushed to a local Miami hospital where she was treated for the suspected alcohol poisoning.
Radar reports the show’s producers decided to leave the incident out of last week’s episode, as it actually occurred the night Jwoww’s boyfriend Tom Lippolis came to visit. This was the same night Snooki was shown playing with the couple’s feet before eventually going into Vinny‘s bed.
While MTV failed to comment on the story, the source adds that “Snooki was out of commission for about two days and was left in pain after undergoing the hospital treatment.”
In other Jersey Shore news, Radar is also reporting that DJPauly Dis the first cast member to get his own solo spin-off show! The show, which will air on MTV, will reportedly follow the DJ as he travels the country and Canada spinning tunes.
“They have already chosen a name and of course it will be deejay-related,” a source tells Radar, adding that the show will begin filming next month.
Get ready to see a whole lot more of Jenni Farley aka Jwoww.
E! News is reporting that the Jersey Shore star is ready to pose nude in Playboy magazine. Jwoww confirms the news to the site, stating she is in the final negotiation stages.
“Final offer is standing,” said JWoww. “Hopefully, it will go through.” As for when she plans to take the photos, Jwoww replied “winter.”
So is Jwoww planning to show everything? “I don’t know yet,” she said. “It hasn’t been talked about yet.” And with the third and likely final season featuring the original cast of Jersey Shore all wrapped up, Jwoww and Snooki make it clear they are open to having a spin-off together. “It would be us just living together,” Snooki said, “and trying to make a living.”

Jersey Shore’s breakout star Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki, got a verbal lashing from a New Jersey Judge during her court appearance yesterday.
This all stems from Snooki’s July 30 arrest for public intoxication. According to UsWeekly, the charges were later changed to “creating a public nuisance, disorderly conduct and annoying beach-goers.”
“You seem to be acting like a Lindsay Lohanwannabe in this matter, going through life rude, profane, obnoxious and self-indulgent,” Judge Damien Murray told Snooki following her sentence of two days of community service and fines totaling $533.
The Judge didn’t end there, also questioning whether Snooki’s drunken antics was all for show. Judge Murray told Snooki that if it was all for TV, she needed to decide if “it was worth trading your dignity for a paycheck.”
Snooki appeared remorseful for her behavior as she said she was “very embarrassed” when she addressed the court. She later tweeted “Ah never again! So scary…thank you judge for understanding, I’m very thankful for that! Whew…now I can breath!”
A new episode of Jersey Shore airs tonight during which Sammi will likely utter the words “I’m done” a minimum of 10 times before jumping back into bed with Ronnie. Photos of Snooki during her court appearance below -

The NYPost is reporting that ladies are banding together, refusing to sign a new contract with the network unless they get more money. Jersey Shore money to be exact.
See, the Post states the ladies are earning a mere $4,000 per episode for their show, while MTV reality star Snookiearns $30,000 per episode on the Jersey Shore hit show.
They’ve got a lot more to say,” Jill Zarin a source close to the Housewives tells the Post, adding that the ladies “have little choice but to pimp themselves out with side gigs to bump up their earnings.”
“It’s a full-time job without the full-time pay,” a second source says. “That’s why a reality star with any sense does a book line or jewelry line to support being on the show.”
Well let’s examine things to see if the NYC ladies really deserve more money. The show averaged 2 million viewers per episode last season, while the Jersey Shore’s current season is averaging 5 million viewers. So simple calculation shows that solely based on the ratings, the ladies should be earning at least $12,000 per episode. Oddly enough, the Jersey Shore cast and the Real Housewives of NYC cast have about the same number of cast members.
Also, it is likely that Bethenny Frankel is not involved in this negotiation process with the other housewives. With the success of her spin off show, there’s a good chance her negotiations is being done solo and she will likely earn more money than her co-stars if and when she returns to the show. For example, TMZ reported Jersey Shore’sThe Situation is earning $60,00o per episode on the show, way more than all of his other co-stars.

TMZ is reporting that cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magrowas picked up on Sunday morning and arrested for unpaid parking tickets. According to TMZ, Ronnie paid the tickets, and was released. The above picture was taken after his release.
The Seaside Heights Police Department released a statement stating “Ronald Ortiz was placed under arrest for outstanding warrants from two separate jurisdictions … Mr. Ortiz was transported to the Seaside Heights Police Department where he was processed and later released after satisfying the conditions of these warrants.”
This is the second arrest for a JS cast member in two weeks. Snooki was arrested back on July 30th for public intoxication.
In other Shore news, RadarOnline is also reporting that Snookinow has a new boyfriend. According to Radar, Snookie’s new BF is Jeff Miranda, who is described as a 24-year-old Iraq veteran.
It also seems unlike Snooki’s ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella, who is now trying to become a reality star, Jeff wants to keep their new relationship low key. He posted the following on his facebook page – “People no more Snookie (sic) talk… She is an amazing girl and couldn’t ask for any more or less. I am not making any further comments about Nicole and myself. When the time is right you will be updated.”
However a source tells RadarOnline Jeff isn’t the good guy he’s trying to portray himself as, saying he is a “player” and “he’s become a gym rat and hooked-up with Snooki to get popularity and fame. Let’s face it, the guy wants to be a star.”
Angelina and the Real Housewives of New Jerseycast member are pictured above after meeting this weeked at the Beatstock 2010 music festival in New Jersey. “He is adorable, I have the biggest crush [on him],” Angelina told Radar.
“I was hanging out with him at the beach bash and he kept asking if he could get me drinks,” Angelina said. After she got booed onstage, Albie texted her a comforting note: “You did a great job. I got your back girl.”
Angelina however has a boyfriend, but states the possibility of a new romance is in the air, as she believes Albie is interested too. “He texted me after, ’Hey what are you doing? You’re so cute, lets hang out tonight.’”
A friend of Albie’s tells Radar:”He was happy to meet her and thought she was a cool girl.”
Goodluck to Angelina. She might need it trying to get past Mama Bear Manzo.
In other Jersey Shore news, the show’s break out star Snookiisn’t taking too well to the President saying he didn’t know who she was during his recent appearance of The View talk show.
Snooki, who might or might not be getting an inflated ego, tells E! News – “I know he knows who I am… Why did he have to lie and say he didn’t know me? He did say Snooki and JWoww about the tanning stuff and now he doesn’t know who I am? He has to stop lying.”
What Snooki is referring to was back in May at the annual White House Correspondents Dinner when President Obama joked about a tanning tax, saying “the following individuals shall be excluded from the indoor tanning tax within this bill: Snooki, JWOWW, The Situation and House minority leader John Boehner.”
Perhaps someone should inform Snooki the President has speech writers…
And finally the ratingsof Jersey Shore this season can only be described as nothing short of amazing. The second season’s premiere episode averaged over 5.3 million viewers, while last week’s episode averaged 5 million viewers. No wonder MTV is currently filming the 3rd season with the same cast.
