Fist-pumping and the long arm of the law rarely go hand-in-hand, but it appears the worlds of The Boys in Blue and The Gelled Ones are colliding: Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick is dating one of New York’s finest.
The Jersey Shore Season One castoff rumored to have hooked up with castmate Pauly D is now smitten with a new man, named — What Else? — Paul.
He works the beat in Staten Island and swept a giggly Angelina off her feet after the couple met in the reality star’s Seaside Heights stomping ground earlier this summer.
“He’s 100 percent Italian but not a guido. I met him at the Jersey Shore and we’ve been dating for about a month,” says Pivarnick, who is keeping Paul’s last name under wraps for now.
Angelina, who earned the nickname “Pale Rat Bitch” from her onscreen nemesis Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, describes Paul as compassionate, romantic, and extremely family-oriented — so much so that she recently met his mother. A month sounds a bit early for familial introductions, but whatever tickles your pickle.
“He likes me for who I am – not because I’m on the Jersey Shore, he’s a real guy who holds the door open and does sweet things for me, like he gave me a Build-A-Bear dressed as a cop for my birthday. This is a real relationship, we have fun together and really care about each other,” Angelina coos.
The twosome are still working on Paul’s Jersey Shore nickname.
The second season of the beach-themed reality hit premieres on MTV July 29.
