In the new Us Weekly (now on newsstands), former Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick says relentless name-calling and nasty pranks drove her to quit the hit MTV show on the Sept. 30 episode.
“I was bullied to the fullest sense,” says Pivarnick, 24, who also skipped out midway through the show’s first installment in Seaside Heights, NJ, last year.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino “called me a dirty hamster, but I cleaned that house up and down! MTV never showed that,” she tells Us. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi “would call me a whore,” she adds. “Mike and Vinny [Guadagnino] would call me fat, call me a whale. I would go in the bathroom and cry.” One time, Sorrentino, 28, put a condom on her pillow with whipped cream in it so it looked used, she tells Us.
Another time, she adds, “I found olive oil and grated cheese all over my bed. I picked up my comforter, and it was on my sheets, my pillow. It was yellow and I thought Mike pissed on my bed.”
The unattached former bartender, who now lives with her mom and sister on NYC’s Staten Island, says 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.”
