Jersey Shore: Family Vacation (S03E09)

This is the recap of the ninth episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. This post is dark and full of spoilers.

If you’re gonna be a monkey, be a gorilla.

This is a commonly uttered phrase meaning if you are going to do something then you should perform to the best of your ability.

Jenni is a gorilla.

With the ink not even dry on her divorce, Jenni is bumpin’ uglies with her 24 year old boyfriend.  This new relationship has warmed her usually cold heart. She has definitely got her groove back.

Today is Your Birthday

It’s Ariana Sky’s first birthday! Ron and Jen have pulled all the stops. And I mean All. The. Stops. This party is a grand affair with a fully equipped bounce house and petting zoo.

Great job, guys.

The conversation shifts to relationships and Angelina makes a startling revelation.  Her and Chris rarely have sex and she does not even give him consistent blowjays.

This is a downright scandal!

Laurens  gives Jen some good advice about how to handle being involved with someone in recovery. However, in true Jersey Shore: Family Vacation style,  Jen immediately ignores her advice and creates an environment of alcohol drinking in Ronnie’s presence. Jen, is it that hard not to drink liquor at a kid’s birthday party when your significant other is fresh out of rehab? I am all for having a good time too but there is a time and place for everything. Like, are you serious?

The Visitation

Vinny meets up with the girls and they all visit Laurens. They wish to be added to Mike’s visitation list for prison.  The girls also make time to tease Vinny about his man purse and newly acquired lisp. Afterwards, Vinny and Pauly visit Mike. Unfortunately, cameras were not allowed but they are ecstatic to see him and are pleasantly surprised at how well he is living in prison.

Jenni and Zack have their first official date in public. It is interesting to witness how relaxed Jenni is around him and how happy she is after the disintegration of her marriage.

Welp, like people say, the best way to get over a man is to get under a new one. They confirm their exclusivity by kicking it old school and going steady.

Viva Las Vegas Part Deux!

Deena is packing for a trip to Vegas with Jenni to see Vinny’s show.

But wait, there’s more!

Jenni is taking Vinny’s mom, Paula, to see Vinny’s show, much to the chagrin of Vinny.

Speaking of Vinny, the day before his trip to Las Vegas, he sprains his ankle and is moving around with the aid of a scooter.

How will he perform on one leg at his Chippendale’s show?
