The premiere of Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 is not that far away, and fans who have been keeping up with the cast during filming like we have are no doubt just as excited to see the stories behind some of the shocking headlines that have surfaced. For those who are a bit out of the loop, this list will bring you up to speed on what's been happening on the road to Season 2, and help get fans pumped for the wild ride the latest installment seems as if it will be. Without further ado, here are the Season 2 moments we're most excited for.
How Angelina And JWoww Settle Their Feud
Angelina Pivarnick returned to the cast for a brief stint in Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 1, and it was far from a welcome homecoming. Some in the house were more receptive to her presence than others, but it was JWoww who made it outwardly apparent she still hasn't forgiven her former Jersey Shore castmate for years of soiling her and the cast's name in tabloids. Now, Pivarnick is back in Season 2, and while it appears she brought some drama with her, her recent posts on social media appear to indicate her feud with JWoww will be over. We're assuming something pretty substantial must've happened for Jenni to let that feud die, and we can't wait to see it.
What It's Like To Be Pregnant During Jersey Shore
Deena Nicole-Cortese tried to fight off the rumors and speculation surrounding her, but eventually she had to come clean that she was pregnant during filming for Season 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Deena and her husband Christopher are due to have their baby in December, which means there's probably plenty of footage of Deena dealing with pregnancy in addition to some of her child-like castmates. While we're hoping it's fun for her, something tells us a vacation loaded with long nights at bars and drama isn't the greatest vacation for a mother-to-be.
How Single Vinny Does His Thing
Most all of the Jersey Shore Family Vacation cast was in serious or complicated relationships in Season 1, but the cast now has one more single person to pal around with Pauly D in Season 2. Yep, Vinny is single again, which means the show's most flirtatious cast member is presumably going to be out at clubs and making some questionable decisions. The "smush room" basically became a guest room with a weird name in Season 1. That may change now that two-thirds of M.V.P. are able to hit the town and possibly bring back a core missing element of the Jersey Shore days.
The Las Vegas Fight
It's been confirmed that the big blowup that resulted in Ronnie's baby mama Jen Harley getting arrested wasn't filmed by Jersey Shore Family Vacation, but that's apparently not the only heated throwdown the couple had while in Vegas. Tabloids reported Jen attacked Ronnie at a Las Vegas nightclub not long into the Season 2's filming, and reports at the time indicated the cameras were rolling. The fight was then believed to be tied to Ronnie blaming Jen for the death of their dog, and we're assuming Ronnie will reveal some additional details during episodes like he did in Season 1.
The Developments In Jen And Ronnie's Relationship
Season 1 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation made it clear that Jen and Ronnie had some things to work out if they wanted to stay together for their daughter Ariana Sky, and apparently, things reached a boiling point throughout the filming of Season 2. Despite the police reports and injuries that possibly prevented Ronnie from filming part of Season 2, it's still not entirely clear where Jen and Ronnie stand right now with regard to their relationship. We're hoping Season 2 sheds a little more light on the situation, which currently makes his contentious past relationship with Sammi look like a walk in the park.
Pauly D's Vegas Wedding
The trailer for Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 really wants us to know Pauly D had a Vegas-style wedding, and while we're almost certain it's fake, who can pretend they aren't intrigued? Pauly getting wedded to the woman of his dreams via an Elvis officiant is the type of silliness this sometimes super serious revival needs, so all fans should embrace it. Women who are currently vying for Pauly's attention on social media needn't actually worry though, because the arms of Pauly's bride-to-be almost certainly belong to Vinny. Hey, the two said they were going to take their bromance to the next level in Season 1, so we can't fault them for staying true to their word!
Situation And Lauren's Wedding?
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino teased that he and fiancee Lauren would be getting married during Season 2 of Jersey Shore Family Vacation, but that was before an official decision on his tax evasion case was made. The world is still waiting on that verdict, which means the couple may have postponed their plans for a wedding in Italy to a time when Sorrentino can legally leave the country. Either that or Pauly D's wedding is just a ruse to throw everyone off the trail to Mike and Lauren's surprise wedding! Here's hoping for the latter, although surely fans are up to waiting until Season 3 if it means the couple can get married exactly the way they want to.
