With lives of their own and Angelina’s newly improved attitude, the roommates have finally accepted her as one of their own. However, when things took a turn for the worst in Angelina's relationship, they have no issue believing what her soon-to-be ex-husband is saying about her. From the beginning of Angelina's storyline, fans of the show were introduced to her long-time partner Chris Larangeira and their rollercoaster of a relationship.
Jersey Shore: Family Vacation showed the couple through the good and bad times. Ultimately, viewers saw how rocky their relationship was from the start and could not understand why they insisted on staying together when they could not go five minutes without an argument. At the end of the day, the two loved each other, yet they would never get along for some reason, and the roommates could instantly see that it was quite an interesting pairing. Despite Angelina being their friend, the group took Chris's side over her.
With the couple detailing their love life in front of the cameras throughout the few seasons that have aired, viewers witnessed arguments galore, which led to a lot of confusion as Angelina would always proclaim Chris to be her “best friend.” The couple’s lack of an intimate relationship ultimately led the Jersey Shore roommates to get involved and constantly poke fun at them, which noticeably bothered them. However, even though the roommates have finally taken Angelina in as one of their own, as soon as rumors started swirling from Chris’s mouth, they appeared to take his side over hers.
Many viewers of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation would argue that Chris and Angelina should have never gotten married in the first place because of the way the couple argued. When Jenni, Deena, and Nicole made their now infamous wedding speech at Angelina’s wedding, craziness ensued as Angelina was shown laughing and then getting so angry that she stormed off when she realized it bothered Chris. The speech caused the women to stop talking for months, and Nicole even exited the series for a while. However, when their men intervened, they were able to make amends. Now, Chris is claiming that Angelina leaked the speech to a source to make the women look even worse years after the wedding episode aired. The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation roomies begin the suspect that there might be some truth to this. Angelina is shown visibly upset that her ex-husband is making things worse for her by telling all of this to Mike, with the roommates immediately taking his side over hers. Fans of the show can argue that Angelina has made it hard for the roomies to believe her, given she only joined Jersey Shore: Family Vacation recently and her constant need to push buttons has gotten her into more trouble than necessary.
The roommates were so easily swayed by what Chris had to say about Angelina. This shows the viewers that maybe they have not fully accepted Angelina, given how she was with them in the past; however, Mike also stirred the pot when he spoke with Chris and the man she allegedly had an affair with. The ladies also thought they had put all of the wedding drama behind them, so it is disappointing for it to be brought up again after so long. There are always two sides to every story, but in this one, the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation castmates should have Angelina’s back.
