While promoting the new season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Angelina Pivarnick talks about salvaging her marriage with Chris Larangeira.
Angelina Pivarnick revealed that she was actively fighting to save her marriage with long-time friend and husband, Chris Larangeira at press junket for the new sixth season of the hit spin-off Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Though they became officially wed back in late 2019, the chaos between Angelina and her bridesmaids during their second ceremony in season four, Episode 14 “The Speech Part 3” brought an onslaught of drama for the couple. After a slew of alleged cheating and months of mistrust, Angelina filed for divorce in January of last year.
Angelina and Chris have known each other for fourteen years when they both worked at the mall. The beginnings of their relationship were nothing more than platonic because Angelina was always taken by someone else. That changed when they hit it off at a party pool party that her now-husband invited her to. They started dating back in 2016 and became engaged two years later. Angelina introduced her sanitation worker fiance to her Jersey Shore housemates in season 2 of the spin-off, with their first wedding being showcased on the finale episode. They decided to have a grand re-do of their wedding in the following season which caused major rifts between Angelina and her fellow housemates. After a playfully intended bridesmaid speech from Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jennifer “JWoww” Farley, and Deena Cortese went sour, Twitter wars were raged and Angelia’s relationship took a huge hit. While the housemates eventually made up, Angelina’s marriage to Chris took a downward turn during the pandemic. From alleged infidelity to Chris moving out of their home in Freehold, their relationship became so strained that the reality show star made the decision to file for divorce back in January 2021. The case was ultimately dismissed by the court by the court months later.
Angelina opened up about her relationship struggles in a Zoom press junket for the premiere of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation Season Six, saying that she’s looking to salvage their marriage. According to Page Six, she presented Chris with an ultimatum: couples therapy or divorce. Though he was apprehensive at first, she revealed to the press that viewers may see the couple seeking professional help within the season. She said,”At first, he really didn’t want to go to therapy. It was like pulling teeth. Eventually, you’ll see this season that I was like, ‘Listen, if you don’t go with me, it’s done. It’s over.’ He realized, ‘I have to go”
Angelina explains how the divorce of her parents when she was young may have greatly influenced the pitfalls within her relationship with Chris. She goes on to talk about how much her solo therapy has given her a much clearer perspective of her marriage and how to possibly save it. Angelina is no stranger to working out her relationship within the public eye, seeing as how she went on the VH1 reality show Couples Therapy with The Next Food Network Star contestant and then-boyfriend Chris Nirschel. While that relationship didn’t work out, it’s clear that the reality personality is adamant on doing everything she can to maintain a healthy relationship with Larangeira. From JWoww’s brutal divorce with Roger Mathews to Ronnie Ortiz’s explosive co-parenting relationship with Jennifer Harley, fans have seen the stars of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation go through the most climatic breakups in reality TV. Viewers will have to wait and see whether Angelina marriage will prevail or be added to the list.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs on MTV Thursdays at 8.pm. ET.
