Jenni “JWoww” Farley touched upon a sensitive topic during Thursday’s episode of Jersey Shore Family Vacation. The reality star confessed that back in 2011 she had a miscarriage which had turned her life upside down. This was right before the cast shot for the fourth season of the show.

During a conversation with castmate Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Jenni recalled how things had been at that time. “I was a mess in Italy,” Jenni told Mike while they were recalling the time on the show when their life was all about parties and having fun. “Right before Italy, like three or four weeks before Italy, my grandmother passed. And I and Roger actually lost a baby, like I ended up pregnant. Not a lot of people know."

Jenni recalls that the situation got to a point where she had to be given medication in order to ensure that she was fine. “And they put me on medication because of it, I couldn’t handle life,” she explained. Jenni confessed that she was taking medication, including “downers” such as Xanax, that made her “so groggy” at the time. 


“Then I started taking uppers with it, segway right into Italy. I was a f—— mess,” she remembered. However, things have changed a lot since 2011 and now, Jenni and her husband Roger Mathews are proud parents to 3-year-old daughter Meilani Alexandra and 23-month-old son Greyson Valor.

This is not the first time that Jenni has opened up about her pregnancy. In 2014 she announced that she had a miscarriage scare in a now-deleted blog post. "I went to the bathroom, I saw blood and panicked. So many thoughts were running through my head," she wrote recalling the scary moment. "I felt a loss like no other when I thought that I was no longer pregnant."

“I whispered it to Roger and for that whole ride we just stared straight ahead and didn’t say a word. I went to bed that night in Nashville praying it was just a thing that happens.” Fortunately, it happened to be “just a thing” and she realized she was indeed pregnant.
