Ex-Jersey Shore cast member Angelina Pivarnick isn’t ready to say goodbye to her hard partying lifestyle and that, plus overly ambitious demands, caused her to blow an opporutnity to appear on Dr. Drew’s Celebrity Rehab, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
Angelina was offered a large payday to appear on the show, but negotiated her way right out of the deal.
Following the 24-year-old bartender’s stint on the Jersey Shore, where she seemed to partake in more than her fair share of drunken fights and booze fuelled hook-ups, Dr Drew’s producers reached out to her to appear on the show.
Angelina at first agreed to appear but then refused to sign on the dotted line, delaying the process for so long that the show’s producers gave up and moved on, RadarOnline.com has learned exclusively.
“Angelina wasted two months of the network’s time, their money and legal efforts,” a source told RadarOnline.com exclusively.
“She got the contracts,” but then didn’t follow through and after that she demanded more money.
The source says that Angelina made an agreement with producers late lastyear to appear on the show. But early this year, after contacts were drawn and payment arrangements were set, Angelina decided she wanted more money and did what she could to make it happen.
“She was fishing for the best deal she could get, she felt she was worth more than they were offering,” the source claimed.
“People at the office would cringe when she would call, knowing they had to hear her yack on and on about who she thought she was.”
According to the source Angelina would have made a perfect candidate for the rehab show, claiming: “She makes drunk calls at all hours of the night screaming, ‘I’m an original cast member of the Jersey Shore… Don’t you think I was the pretty one?’
“She’s always dissing the other girls and talking herself up whenever she’s drunk…’Those other girls are dogs, look at them,’ she says. ‘I’m the pretty one. Don’t you think I’m the pretty one?’”
However, if Angelina does finally decide she could do with a stint in treatment it would appear this particular rehab may no longer want her. “Finally, by the end of January the shows producers decided it wasn’t worth the effort dealing with her and waiting for her and they moved on,” the source said.
