The Jersey Shore‘s Angelina Pivarnick opened up to TV priest Father Albert about her brief pregnancy on a recently taped episode, saying that all the media attention and lack of support from her baby daddy caused her undue stress that contributed to her miscarriage. “Everyone in the tabloids and media weren’t really leaving me alone about it,” she told him as he listened sympathetically. “Basically I wanted it to be my personal business and it really wasn’t.” Of the baby’s father (“just a guy I was with”), she said, “He wasn’t even there for me. He was tormenting me, and it was definitely a big reason why I think what happened to me.” Do you hear that, random guy? Your rampant douchebaggery killed a baby. Your baby.
While it’s extremely sad any time someone loses a pregnancy they want to keep, I have to question the sincerity of Angelina’s statement. This is a woman who repeatedly talked shit on her former cast mates and possibly staged a red carpet proposal just to stay in the public eye. If anything, all the extra attention should’ve made her happier. A happy, glowing, super famous mother to be.
Then there is the assertion on the part of her ex Jeff Miranda that she was never pregnant to begin with. “She did it for publicity,” he told Rumor Fix. “People have told her that her time is up — she’s trying to keep her face in the press.” Holy shit. This reminds me of that episode of 30 Rock when Jenna decides to have a baby for attention, only not as funny, because this is real. If it’s true, this would make her scolding of the press incredibly ironic. But at least it would mean she wasn’t actually irresponsible enough to get tattooed with a bun in the oven. And that an innocent child won’t be stuck with her for 18 years. Silver linings?
