Angelina Pivarnick may have left her heart at the Jersey Shore. But she’s still got her attitude.
The former Jersey Shore guidette — the self-appointed “Kim Kardashian of Staten Island” — has been accused of punching a woman in the face during a wild weekend in Atlantic City, law enforcement officials told TMZ.com this week.
Pivarnick was scheduled to fight another reality star, Kerry Schwartz of the VH1 series Frank the Entertainer in a Basement Affair, during a celebrity boxing match at the Trump Taj Mahal Hotel & Casino on Saturday night, but all Hell broke loose when Pivarnick began brawling with an unidentified female before ever setting foot in the ring.
Atlantic County cops say Angelina was the aggressor. Pivarnick, on the other hand, claims she was the one being antagonized.
“That night I feel I was provoked, taunted, and harassed into a fight,” says Angelina, who left her hit MTV show for good after allegedly being bullied by her Shore co-stars. “There are signs pointing in the direction that this was a set up against me and I have witnesses and evidence to prove this.”
It’s been a particularly bloody end to the 2010 for loathed reality star, an aspiring rapper (Cue Laugh Track Here…) In October, Angelina and a friend were attacked by a group of rowdy youths while shopping for Halloween costumes at a mall outside Staten Island.
Pivarnick faces one count of simple assault. She’s due in court later this month.
