Angelina Pivarnick would have liked her co-stars to beat up the beat a little more when it came to news of her engagement

The Jersey Shore star is revealing how she felt after cast member Jenni "JWoww" Farley questioned her engagement to Vinny Tortorella on the April 27 episode of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

"She claimed that she was just trying to look out for me," Angelina told E! News in an exclusive interview May 15, "but to be honest with you, she got divorced and then she got re-engaged again. I think there was a five month difference between Jenni getting engaged as opposed to me getting engaged."

She confessed that she didn't understand the reaction, "because when she got engaged, I was nothing but happy for her. So I just didn't understand where this was coming from."

After Vinny proposed to Angelina, both JWoww and her fiancé Zack Carpinello had a slew of questions for the newly-engaged couple, including how long they had been together (for the record, Vinny said a month.)

"I'm shook," JWoww responded. "When are you taking out your IUD? I think she's going get knocked up soon."

Angelina explained that being questioned right after such a happy moment was hurtful coming from a longtime friend.

"I understand when people say, 'We're just looking out for you to make sure you're not doing it too fast,' but that's something you could have pulled me aside to do," the MTV star continued. "Me and you personally—even with the cameras rolling—she could have pulled me aside separately and not did what she did at the table."

When it came down to it, Angelina "just didn't really appreciate" the way she was approached, saying, "It was very, very upsetting to me. It's not something that I wanted, and I didn't want to have to look at her and see that coming out of her mouth." 

On top of that, she said she didn't feel support from other castmates after JWoww's comments. The day after her engagement, Angelina sat down with co-stars Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Deena Cortese to voice her distain toward JWoww asking questions, but felt the women dismissed her concerns.

"To be called crazy and that those things weren't happening the next day by all the girls, they try to discredit my feelings," the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star continued, "and I don't like that, because I would never discredit their feelings. When they feel something, I take it into accountability. And then I say, ‘OK, well, if that hurt you then I'm sorry for this or that.'"

But Angelina didn't feel she received the same treatment back.

"They were all just saying that I was crazy," she recalled, "And that what I was feeling on seeing wasn't true."

Last month, viewers saw Angelina get proposed to during Vinny Guadagnino's birthday dinner with the entire cast present. 

"I want to grow old with you," Vinny Tortorella proclaimed. "I want to experience everything with you, I wouldn't want to experience it with anyone else. Together, as one, my best friend, I love you so much. I just wanted to give you something. I love you Ang and I hope that you will marry me."

Angelina didn't hesitate, as she gushed, "100 times over, yes." 

Part two of the Jersey Shore Family Vacation reunion airs May 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on MTV.
