Snooki And JWoww's Jersey Shore Family Vacation Feud Isn't As Real As It Seems

The latest episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation teased big tension between best friends Snooki and JWoww, as the latter supposedly announced she was leaving the Las Vegas vacation. According to the episode, JWoww's exit was rooted in Snooki's inviting of Angelina and another friend to the vacation, thus ruining the family vibe of the classic Jersey Shore cast having a vacation. Now, both Snooki and JWoww are saying that wasn't the case and informing fans their feud on the show wasn't as real as it seemed:

Snooki and JWoww hopped on Twitter to inform Jersey Shore Family Vacation viewers that what went down in the episode was a bit of clever editing used to create an event that might be fake news. JWoww, who did express a general distaste for Snooki's invitation of Angelina and her other friend to the hotel, said that the actual reason she left the reality series was so she could attend therapy sessions for her son Greyson. The reveal would seemingly indicate that JWoww is not out of the season for good like some promotions for the season have teased and that her big fight with Snooki was more television magic than anything.

The story may be somewhat hard to believe for some Jersey Shore Family Vacation fans, who may think the two women are more or less covering up for what now may be seen by both of them as a silly argument. In their defense, this is not the first time the show's editing staff has come under fire, as Ronnie Ortiz-Magro's baby mama Jen Harley also complained about how her scenes were portrayed earlier in the season. At the end of the day it appears all castmembers want viewers to remember that not everything on reality television is "real," or at least Snooki anyway as she clapped back at a fan criticizing the group's treatment of Angelina:

It wouldn't be surprising if quite a few Jersey Shore Family Vacation viewers are now wondering how much of the show is dedicated to what essentially seems like scripted drama after reading the star's response. Snooki later clarified in another tweet that the cast is unscripted in their interactions, but that they have no control over how their words and actions are edited and twisted around in post-production. Snooki and Jenni may have had a fight about inviting people outside the "group chat" to the vacation, and Jenni did take time away from the show, but it sounds as though those two incidents weren't necessarily connected like the series led viewers to believe.

Reality or not, the events of Jersey Shore Family Vacation Season 2 will continue to unfold on MTV Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. ET. For a list of other shows airing around that time or in the coming months, visit our fall premiere guide.
