Wedding bells will be ringing very soon for Angelina Pivarnick. The Jersey Shore star began the final countdown to her impeding wedding to fiancé Chris Larangeira when she celebrated her bridal shower with friends and family on October 26.
Her MTV costar Deena Nicole Cortese attended the joyous occasion at the Historic Old Bermuda Inn in Staten Island, New York. Angelina, 33, shared a cute snap from the afternoon on Instagram of her friends, including Deena.
"My lovely bridesmaids and maid of honor. Thank you for such a special day today. I wouldn’t of done it without you guys.," she captioned the photo. She tagged Deena, 32, as well as several of her other friends. "I loved everything everyone !!! Thank you I couldn’t thank everyone enough ❤️❤️❤️❤️ #bridalshower #love," she added. Angelina also tagged her the various people who helped throw her shower, including the DJ, cake bakery and hair and makeup team.
Angelina and Chris are set to marry in November. The pair confirmed they were engaged in January 2018. He proposed to the Couples Therapy star after a romantic dinner. He laid out an array of rose petals in his home where he popped the question. While the twosome knew each other for almost 15 years before dating, they were in a relationship for a year before getting engaged.
Angelina hosted her bridal shower amid the drama surrounding her Jersey Shore costar Jenni "JWoww" Farley and her ex-boyfriend Zach Carpinello. Angelina claimed the 25-year-old wrestler hit on her and groped her in a surfaced Jersey Shore episode clip earlier this month. JWoww and Zach broke up as a result but reconnected shortly after.
Jenni, 34, spoke out on Instagram after the episode aired. "After seeing tonight’s episode I’m pretty hurt. I feel disrespected by someone I called a friend and by someone who stated they loved me,” she wrote following the episode. “For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a storyline that will forever haunt me. For 5 months I was naive, probably laughed at and made into a storyline that will forever haunt me. My hearts hurts on so many levels. One thing I learned from tonight’s episode is know your value. Don’t ever lower your standards,"
Zack apologized for his behavior. "I made mistakes that I cannot take back, which I take full responsibility for. Jenni does not deserve any damage from anybody else. This is on me," he wrote in an Instagram post earlier this month. "I sincerely apologize to Jenni. I apologize to Angelina as well. I love Jenni, with everything I have, I make this known to her every day. I will continue to do everything to make this known to her and her kids, who also have my heart. I will make certain that nothing like this ever happens again, in any way regardless of the outcome."
