“Mike took it upon himself to insert himself … [and tweet] bad stuff about me,” Angelina tells Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Deena Cortese, and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in episode 8. “Her go-to move is destruction,” Mike said in one tweet. “Hope you get help for your violent behavior,” he said in another with the search results about how throwing water on someone can be an assault crime.
“Calling me a felon, saying I should have gotten arrested?” Angelina continue. “Are you f***ing kidding me?”
Later in the episode, Jenni has a conversation with Mike about the tweets. “It takes a felon to know a felony,” Mike explains. “Technically, I just spit out facts…”

Mike shows the screenshot receipts of his conversation with Angelina to Jenni, which he kept because he knew “she was going to betray” him.
According to Mike and Angelina’s conversation, an agreement was in place. “If I say anything you don’t like, just text me and I’ll delete,” his message from her to her from her says. Angelina allegedly replied “No lol. I’m not the other girls, I can deal…” which upsets Jenni. She doesn’t confront Angelina in episode 8, but fans can bet this staged Twitter fight will come up in New Orleans.
