Though she said a reconciliation with Jenni “JWoww” Farley would be “too huge for me to think possible,” Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola shared a drink and a hug with her roommate and former sparring partner. But it didn’t come easy.
On Thursday’s Jersey Shore, Sammi came this close to leaving Seaside Heights, N.J., and going home. Her bags were packed and her mom was on the way to pick her up.
The straw that almost broke her camel’s back? A fight with on-again, off-again boyfriend Ronnie Magro (of course) that ended with her punching him in the face.
Though there was a lot of anger – accusations, horrible words exchanged, the emptying of Sammi’s closet – it came to blows when Ronnie wouldn’t answer Sammi’s questions: Are you friends with JWoww? Sammi and Ronnie made up (of course) before she had a chance to go.
The next day, JWoww offered to buy Sammi a drink at Karma – “My mood has changed lately and I’m just happy,” Jenni explained – and she accepted.
Over cocktails, Sammi apologized and even said, “I love you.”
“I was mean to Jenni for a lot of wrong reasons,” Sammi admitted. “Being able to move forward makes me feel happy.”
But will their friendship last?
