You knew it was coming, but it finally happens Tuesday (Mar. 12) when boyfriend Roger Mathews proposes to Jenni “JWOWW” Farley on MTV’s “Snooki & JWOWW.”
The actual event happened in September and she had to keep quiet, at least initially, she tells Zap2it.
“I had to keep it quiet for 72 hours and it was the longest 72 hours of my life,” Farley says. “Anyone who knows me, knows I cant keep my mouth shut to get a food order — let alone the biggest thing in my life.
“It was all because I wanted to show Nicole in person,” she continues. “And I showed up to her house and I showed her the ring.”
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was the person Farley told.
“She is my best friend, my biggest supporter, and she means kind of the world to me,” Farley says. “And on some level, it was like the show, and me and Roger met on the show of ‘Jersey Shore.’“
For those who forgot, back in season 1, Farley was, by her account, extremely drunk and he carried her home, while Polizzi flung cheese balls at him.
Who says romance is dead?
“If it wasn’t for that one night with Nicole and the cheese balls,” Farley says.
She recalls seeing Roger as “one of the faces in the crowd, like, ‘what’s up, hi and goodbye.’ It was definitely because of that night we kept in touch.”
Farley says she knew he was the one because he could put up with her, “and it takes a lot of person to put up with me.”
Roger popped the question after skydiving.
“He was down on one knee and started to bug me out,” she says.
He presents her with a 5-carat, cushion cut diamond, with 2.5 clear and pink diamonds surrounding it.
