Jersey Shore: Family Vacation: Deena Cortese FINALLY agrees to meet with Angelina Pivarnick


Deena Cortese finally agreed to meet with Angelina Pivarnick after a feud that kept them apart for 10 months on Thursday’s episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

The 34-year-old mom acquiesced to a sharing a table with Angelina, also 34, at a dinner for DJ Pauly D’s girlfriend.

Deena said she would attend the meal for Nikki Hall, 26, if she and Angelina could be seated on ‘opposite sides of the table.’

That felt like a victory to the Jersey Shore guys, who had orchestrated a reunion between the two by getting them to both vacation at the same Las Vegas hotel.

They’d spent months trying to broker peace between the girls, who’d formerly been close, but had fallen out after Angelina’s November 2019 wedding.

Asked to give a speech at that event, Deena, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, 33, and Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, 34, launched into a bawdy, off-color tribute that left Angelina steaming.

The Las Vegas trip was supposed to bring Deena and Angelina back together, but they’d so far avoided one another.

Making matters worse, Deena quietly revealed to Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino, 38, that Jenni demanded she not make up with Angelina on the trip.

To figure out what to do, the guys gathered in their suite for a ‘Brotein’ shake Mike concocted.

They asked Deena’s husband Chris Buckner, 31, if he would stop by and cut their hair, hoping that he could convince Deena to talk to Angelina.

When Chris insisted it wouldn’t work, they moved on to Plan B: Divide and conquer.

They decided that half the guys would speak to Deena, and the other half to Angelina.

Vinny Guadagnino, 33, and DJ Pauly D, 40, took Deena and Chris to dinner, pretending that they really wanted to celebrate the second anniversary of their ‘bro-mittment’ as best buds.

Mike, his wife Lauren, 36, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, 35, dined with Angelina, and had a fun yet salty discussion about explicit photos people sent them.

It was all going well, with Vinny and Pauly initially ‘talking about everything under the sun’—gummy candies, nuclear proliferation, cucumber water—except the real issue.

Finally, they had to address the elephant in the room.

Nervous, Pauly opened his mouth to ask Deena about Angelina when a chattering noise came from the bushes, making Deena say, ‘What the f*** was that?!’

The answer: raccoons. A family of raccoons.

‘Just about to drop the bomb on Deena and all of a sudden out comes some raccoons,’ Pauly said in a confessional. ‘Like, is this some kind of sick omen?’

Over at Mike and Ronnie’s dinner table, Angelina was heard admitting that perhaps she shouldn’t have gotten so upset over what happened at her wedding.

To the cameras, she explained, ‘It’s been 10 months. I just want to let it go. I’m over it, and I don’t want to do this anymore.’

At his own table, Pauly was getting anxious about talking to Deena, so he tried a different tactic.

Very casually, he mentioned that he’d love to have Nikki come visit and meet everyone at the hotel, but he didn’t want to do ‘a bunch of little dinners.’

‘I want everybody to come,’ he said, looking ever-so-sweetly at Deena. ‘Will you come?’

‘Yeah,’ Deena said after a long pause. ‘I will. I want to meet her.’

Dinner pact: 'Yeah,' Deena said after a long pause after Pauly asked her to meet his girlfriend over dinner. 'I will. I want to meet her'

Pauly was jubilant, saying privately, ‘Holy f***, she went for it! She took it hook, line and sinker.’

Deena emphasized that she and Angelina would have to sit on opposite sides of the table.

‘Jenni will be pi**ed,’ she whispered to her husband as dinner ended.

The guys then met in the lobby to find out how their respective dinners went.

At first, Pauly and Vinny convinced Mike and Ronnie that Deena had gotten upset and fled the meal, but moments later they confessed the truth: She was in.

‘She said yes!’ Pauly crowed, as they all hugged and danced around.

The next morning, the guys needed to get Angelina on board, and vowed to underplay the evening’s dinner with Nikki, only loosely mentioning that Deena would be there.

Minutes in, Mike ruined their plan by highlighting the fact that Deena would attend.

‘You’re not supposed to say anything,’ Ronnie chided him, shaking his head.

Angelina said she’d be okay with seeing Deena at dinner, but secretly she wondered if she was ready for it.

Ronnie was then put on ‘Angelina duty,’ and charged with keeping her out of trouble.

Not long afterward, Angelina slipped away from him and went to the bar for drinks.

Still flushed with success, Pauly and Vinny went for a mini-bike ride around their hotel.

They tried to figure out where to seat everyone at dinner that evening, using ‘trigonometry’ to figure out a peaceable arrangement.

Pauly had never introduced a girl to ‘the family,’ so it was all critically important to him.

As he waited for Nikki in his hotel suite afterward, everyone noticed how happy he was.

‘Somebody’s wifey is coming to town!’ the guys chanted, as Pauly beamed.

But in a preview of next week’s show, their plan seemed to have hit a snag.

Deena was shown telling the boys it had all been too much, and she was flying home.

Jersey Shore: Family Vacation will return next week on MTV.
