With the announcement coming down on Thursday that “Jersey Shore” would be ending after six seasons, we have seen most of the current stars of the series express their sadness with Twitter messages, interviews, and frowny faces that have been felt all around the world. However, that does not necessarily mean that every person who has ever been on the show feels the same way.
Speaking in an interview with TMZ, Angelina Pivarnick — who famously left the show after two seasons following some intense drama (and shouting matches) in Miami — had the following to say about saying goodbye to the series:
“The show had a good run but now it’s time to move on and do other things. I’m relieved it’s over … [I’m] still sad over the way I was portrayed on the show. Now that ‘Jersey Shore’ is done, hopefully one day down the road I can be looked at better.”
Ever since Angelina was on the show, most of the cast has chosen to dis her publicly with all sorts of nasty comments — she made a brief cameo during season 5 when she was spotted at one of the clubs in Seaside Heights, but Pauly D made an effort to get away from her as quickly as possible after exchanging a brief greeting with her.
The ratings for “Jersey Shore” actually peaked not long after Angelina’s exit, with almost nine million people on average tuning in to the show’s third season (which featured the arrival of Deena Cortese). Following that, though, the series has been on a slow decline to the point where season 5 dipped below six million viewers on average. However, it is the change in the stars’ lives — with Snooki having a child and The Situation out of rehab — that has triggered the show’s cancellation more so than the numbers.
