A crying Farley, 25, called ex-boyfriend and former manager Tom Lippolis in the days after the show premiered in late 2009 and told him she “swallowed a bottle of pills” and “insinuated that she tried to kill herself.”
“I rushed home,” Lippolis tells us in this exclusive video interview, “and talked her out of the bathroom because she locked herself in.”
J-WOWW, along with Snooki one of the show’s original “guidettes,” survived the ordeal just fine.
So, what upset J-WOWW ?
Said Lippolis: “She was upset how (negatively) she was portrayed on national television!”
And, Lippolis added, she may have felt a little guilty that she cheated on him with Jersey Shore castmate D.J. Pauly D!
