The episode picked up at the end of bridesmaids Nicole, Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Deena Cortese's infamous speech at Angelina Pivarnick's wedding to Chris Larangeira last November. Though the girls swore they meant no harm by it, jokes like "you're the trash to our bags," the "lice to our hair," and the "dump to our island" didn't go over well with the crowd, which was full of Angelina's family and friends, largely Staten Island locals, who booed loudly throughout.
