The brunette beauty, 33, and Roger decided to go their separate ways in September 2018 after nearly three years of marriage. Shortly afterward, the former flames — who share daughter Meilani, 4, and son Greyson, 3 — accused each other of abusive behavior throughout their relationship.
“I was very surprised that she was going through that ‘cause I had no idea that it was that to that extent,” the 38-year-old told Us Weekly on Tuesday, May 21, while promoting his upcoming F Cancer Jersey Shore party. “And I was sad for her going through it, but I am happy now that it’s over, they seem to be great now. Like totally coparent. I watched videos of them with the kids and when it’s the sad part about it, it’s the kids that suffer the most, but they’re not letting their kids suffer or see any of it, it’s just great.”
Meanwhile, In Touch confirmed on April 25 that The Rules According to JWoww author moved on with Zack Clayton Carpinello — who is “a good friend of [Jenni’s] little brother,” Roger revealed.
So, does the dad of one give his stamp of approval? “I am going to meet him this weekend, and I am really excited about it ‘cause she is really happy — that is the only thing I do know,” he dished. “I don’t know much about the guy yet, but I am excited to meet him.”
The Snooki & JWoww alum admitted she was seeing someone new on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s live podcast with Joey Camasta “It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey” on April 24. “24,” she cryptically said about his name. “’24’ is 24. We’re filming Jersey Shore right now, and we nicknamed him ’24.’”
Despite her former tumultuous relationship, the mom of two seems like she is in a great place. “I wish it was over, but it’s not, so I decided to move on, and I moved on a with a 24-year-old,” she said. “Life is a [f—king] roller coaster, but it’s very enjoyable. I’m living my best life right now.”
Yeah, you are, girl!
