To review (see for yourself in this video), Roger was starting to get very aggressive as a fight broke out at Bamboo. JWOWW saw her boyfriend raise his fist, and got in between Roger and his intended target, telling him “No!” and “Stop!” repeatedly. Roger put both his hands on Jenni and shoved her aside, where she fell on the floor and apparently fractured a bone in her ankle.
Deena Nicole was the surprising voice of reason, saying in her confessional that she doesn’t think it’s ever okay for a guy to put his hands on a girl in a violent manner. Sammi tried her best to convince Ronnie that women have protective instincts too, and that Jenni was just trying to help Roger by getting involved. Snooki, as always, was Team JWOWW.
But all the guys in the house were Team Roger. Out for dinner the next night, The Situation, Ronnie, Vinny, and Pauly D all took Roger’s side, agreeing that a girl should never, ever try to get involved when “the men” are fighting. They made fun of her, calling her the bitchiest roommate, and saying she’s always over-exaggerating and being dramatic.
After the fight aired last week, Roger took to Twitter to quasi-apologize for his behavior. He admitted that he needs to control his temper, but he also reprimanded Jenni for getting in between “grown men” who are fighting.
Having seen the actual video of the moment in question (which none of the roommates had seen at the time of filming), whose side are you on? Tell us in the reaction buttons below!
