If you’re looking for a reunion of exes, it won’t be happning this season. Giancola and Ortiz-Magro never cross paths, according to Polizzi, who revealed the news during a recent podcast. The reality star inadvertently spilled the beans during an interview on Steve-O’s Wild Ride podcast late last month.
It turns out, Giancola wasn’t even in the house when Ortiz-Magro stopped by to reunite with his Jersey Shore castmates. “So, this season he [Ronnie] came and Sam was out with her boyfriend,” Polizzi explained before realizing she may have said too much. “I probably shouldn’t have said that. I don’t give a f–k, that’s what happened,” she added. “Everyone thinks they’re going to have that meeting this season, they’re not.” Polizzi didn’t rule out a possible on-camera reunion in the future though, “We’ll see what happens.”
Earlier in the season, Farley spoke about Giancola’s return during an interview on Live With Kelly & Mark late last month. “Shocked isn’t the word; my jaw hit the ground,” she recalled. “We were all living our best life in Pennsylvania, cooking Sunday dinner and she’s just like ‘hey guys’ and walks in.”
Farley also talked about Giancola’s hiatus from the show and her decision to pull back from the group. “It was very hurtful going through that, but I understood why [she needed a break]. I swore she would never come back! When I saw her walk through [the door] I was like is this AI? This can’t be her!”
