Nicole Polizzi posted a birthday wish to her “big sissy” Jenni Farley in a sweet social media share. The reality star used a throwback video that fans of Jersey Shore will recall quite well as part of her post, a clip that ushered in the limited-run series “Snooki & JWoww.”
The show, starring Nicole and Jenni, ran for four seasons on MTV from June 2012 until February 2015.
The retro-styled clip showed the women in all their overdone finery. The background of the video was electric blue with a black leopard pattern on top. The women’s images were silhouetted over hot pink and yellow colors in the video.
Jenni wore a tight long-sleeved purple top in the clip with a wide black belt secured at the smallest part of her waist. Her hair was long and flowing. She also wore huge hoop earrings that almost touched her shoulders.
Nicole had on a lime-green tank top with a black patterned top over it. Her hair was its natural dark color, blown out straight and hanging down her back. The reality star’s eyes were rimmed in dark black eye makeup and she used lots of contouring to highlight her cheekbones.
This year, Jenni turned 34 years old, which led to a debate among fans who didn’t understand Snooki’s declaration that her best friend was turning 29.
While many contradicted Snooki’s statement, others noted in the comments section of the post that women often stop counting their age at 29.
Nicole said in the accompanying caption to the post that Jenni deserved the “most perfect day ever.”
Fans shared her sentiment and posted their own comments of support for the reality star and mother of two — son Greyson and daughter Meilani.
“Lmao 29th hahaha, you’re so sweet Nicole,” stated a fan of the two besties, who met when they were cast in the first season of MTV’s hit reality series Jersey Shore in 2009.
“And on a Jerzday?! How perfect!!” wrote a second follower, using the lingo MTV created to promote new episodes of the series that aired on Thursdays, or “Jerzdays.”
“Love you guys! Happy birthday JWoww! Hope you ladies go all out tonight!”a third user added.
“Happiest of birthday to you Jenni Farley! I hope it’s your best one yet doll,” noted a fourth fan.
A new season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation debuts Thursday on MTV. In this new season, fans will see Jenni finalize her divorce from Roger Mathews. To celebrate, she will go all out with a divorce party that included strippers and lots of boozy fun with her cast mates.
