In tonight's episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Jenni "JWoww" Farley made the tragic announcement that she suffered a miscarriage while dating her now-husband, Roger Mathews, before the MTV series' 2011 season.
"I was a mess in Italy", Farley told Sorrentino, 35, as the pair recalled their previous years of partying and filming the show.
"Right before Italy, it was like three or four weeks before Italy, my grandmother passed, and me and Roger actually lost a baby", she told Sorrentino. "I ended up pregnant". Little did people know that she was having a tough time during the run.
"And they put me on medication because of it, I couldn't handle life", Farley explained, adding 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, segue right into Italy". "I was a f-- mess", she remembered.
JWoww admitted that she was going through hard times of her own during that time, too.
When Farley found out she was pregnant with her first child, she revealed in a blog that she briefly thought she had miscarried. The two tied the knot in 2015.
"I went to the bathroom, saw blood and panicked", she wrote at the time. "I felt a loss like no other when I thought 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", she continued. "I went to the bathroom, saw blood and panicked", she wrote on her blog in January 2014.
Luckily, when she took a pregnancy test the next day, it assured her that everything was okay.
