Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick and Chris Larangeira’s Relationship Leading to His Divorce Filing

Angelina Pivarnick and husband Chris Larangeira went through a lot together before he filed for divorce in January 2022. The pair started seeing each other romantically in 2016, but their timeline actually spans more than a decade.

“I had known Chris for 14 years and he says the reason he never hit on me was because I always had a boyfriend,” the brunette beauty told People in 2018. “We both worked in the mall when we were younger, and he says he used to see me walk past with a different boyfriend every week.”

Angelina revealed the pair reconnected years later when Chris invited her to a party. “We started hanging out from there and we’ve been together ever since,” she told the outlet.

In January 2018, the couple got engaged after over two years as a couple. They later tied the knot at their lavish nuptials in November 2019.  Jersey Shore fans watched Angelina walk down the aisle and say “I do” to her longtime love in an episode that aired during season 3 of the reboot, Family Vacation. Sadly, viewers also saw the drama that transpired with the Staten Island native’s costars.

During Angelina and Chris’ wedding reception, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese made a speech that did not go over well. After making several jokes, including calling the bride “the dump to their island,” Angelina stormed out of her own affair and the girls were booed by their wedding guests.

In the wake of that drama, Angelina was at odds with her castmates, and the ladies even took their feud to Twitter. Fortunately, they were able to come back together on the show, albeit the dynamic had changed. “It was a lot of work for the guys to put that together, and that’s in real life, television and everything,” Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio previously told In Touch. “We couldn’t believe it actually happened.”

The DJ said that although there was a lot of “built-up animosity” between his costars, he respected all of their sides for “certain reasons,” but still wished they didn’t let it go to that “extent.” He added, “They both had valid points … but at the end of the day, we are family and families do fight.”

While that turmoil has simmered down, Angelina told In Touch in June 2021 that the couple were taking things “day by day” and that at the time, they were “just living life.” Then, in July 2021, Angelina and Chris’ divorce case was dismissed following a dismissal notice sent in May 2021, obtained by In Touch

The divorce had “been pending for four (4) months without the filing of required documentation,” the dismissal notice said. Angelina did not immediately respond to In Touch‘s request for comment regarding the divorce dismissal.

The pair’s divorce is back on, as this time it was Chris who made the filing on January 20, 2022, in Monmouth County, New Hersey. It came two weeks after Angelina told In Touch on January 6 that she and Chris were still together but “working on” their marriage. “We’re trying … I just have to say it has been a lot,” she admitted.
