Step off! Jenni “JWoww” Farley is firing back against the accusations that she knowingly drank alcohol recently even though she is pregnant with baby No. 2. The Jersey Shore alum sat down with HuffPost Live on Tuesday, Nov. 10, to address the allegations.
“You can say anything about me,” the 29-year-old reality star said. “You can call me transgender, gay, big, fat, whatever. Do not come after my husband or my kids. That’s what struck a nerve.”
She added, laughing, “And, to be honest, I’m pregnant and very hormonal.”
According to Star Magazine, JWoww, who announced her second pregnancy at her wedding to Roger Mathews on Oct. 18, was seen drinking at a club appearance in Missouri last month.
“A club promoter … sold the story saying that I was knowingly drinking [while] pregnant,” Farley explained. “And I actually, I either conceived that night — go figure — or the week before. When you actually pee on a stick, you’re already four weeks pregnant. So, a lot of people don’t realize that. I found out [that I was pregnant] like two weeks after that.”
The Snooki & JWoww: Moms With Attitude star, who is expecting a boy, also addressed the rumors in an Instagram post on Thursday, Nov. 5.
“I conceived end of August, early September, possibly even while I was in Missouri,” she wrote. “I’m just about 13 weeks pregnant. Do your math before you try to make it look like I would do anything to harm my son and choose to drink.”
Farley said she had “one tequila and drank water the rest of the night.”
The reality star, who is an advocate for gay rights, also briefly spoke to HuffPost Live about the possibility of her children being gay, adding that “the love would never change.”
“Listen, if my son wants to play with a Barbie, I kind of think that’s awesome because he’s attracted to women and he wants to play with beautiful objects,” she said. “If my daughter wants to play with the Incredible Hulk, so be it. I want her to go to a store and pick out what she wants. I don’t want her to pick it out because it’s pink. I love the gender neutral thing.”
Farley and Mathews are already parents to daughter Meilani Alexandra, 15 months.
