As fans are falling back in love with their favorite Italian Stallions on “Jersey Shore Family Vacation,” some new information and details about the roommate’s past are coming to light.
On this week’s episode of the reunion series, Mike “The Situation” and Jenni “JWoww” Farley had an intimate conversation about medication and drugs. Mike is now sober and clean after battling an addiction to narcotics and other substances. JWoww revealed that she, too, had a trouble mixing some medications due to a rough time in her life. She was going through a pretty rough time before the cast filmed the season abroad in Italy. Her grandmother had passed away and she and her boyfriend, Roger, were going through a traumatizing time.
Right before Italy, like three or four weeks before Italy, my grandmother passed. And me and Roger actually lost a baby, like I ended up pregnant. Not a lot of people know,” she said. “And they put me on medication because of it, because I, like couldn’t handle life.”

She said that she was taking a “mix of medications,” including uppers and downers.
‘But the medication, it was like Xanax. It would take me down, like downers, it was making me so groggy. Then I started taking uppers with it, segue right into Italy. I was a f—ing mess.”
Mike admitted that he was having a lot of addiction problems during that same season–and, openly admitted that when he slammed his head into the concrete wall in Italy, he was going through withdrawals.
“I didn’t want to admit it to people in that time period.
Fans reached out on Twitter to show their love and support and thanked her for sharing her story, as many other women have gone through similar situations.

For @JENNIWOWW to talk about her miscarriage is literally so touching. I had one in July and it's truly the hardest thing to go through, still is. To see she has two beautiful children afterwards gives me the most hope. Thank you for sharing ♡#JERZDAY
