Pivarnick also appeared on the VH1 show Couples Therapy in 2012.

Early life[edit]

Pivarnick was born and raised in Staten Island, New York.[2] She graduated from Susan E. Wagner High School.[citation needed]


Before she joined the cast of Jersey Shore, Pivarnick worked as a waitress. Jersey Shore premiered on December 4, 2009. She was evicted from the shore house in the third episode of season one, after refusing to work her shift at the T-shirt shop.[3][4] She then was on Jersey Shore season two in Miami Beach, Florida and Pivarnick again departed the house during season two after violent confrontations with fellow cast-members Michael Sorrentino and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. She did not return for season three.

In 2010, Pivarnick released the song "I'm Hot".[5] She and her boyfriend appeared in Season 1 of the VH1 reality show Couples Therapy, which premiered March 25, 2012.

In March 2011, Pivarnick appeared on the professional wrestling promotion Total Nonstop Action Wrestling, competing in a six-person tag team match.[6][7]

In 2011, Pivarnick made a brief appearance in the music video for rap group Dacav5's song "Dirty Style".[8] She also appeared as a contestant on the reality dating series Excused.

The song charted at No. 37 in the United States on the Billboard Dance/Club Play Songs list.[9]

In September 2012, she engaged in a debate with recording artist Adam Barta on the topic of gay marriage, which she said she opposed. She later reversed her position after Jersey Shore co-star JWoww criticized her on Twitter,[10] and issued a public apology via TMZ.[11] In December, Pivarnick announced a single release called "Serendipity" with Barta, in the hopes of making amends with the LGBT community.[12]
