Angelina Pivarnick, 'Jersey Shore' Star, Sorry For Anti-Gay Marriage Comments

Former "Jersey Shore" star Angelina Pivarnick is full of remorse about her remarks against gay marriage, telling me, "I am ashamed about what I said and, if given a chance, will prove that I am a huge supporter of the gay community and their rights to marry."

Last week during an Internet debate on the website Deeyoon, Angelina was paid to take one side of the gay marriage debate against openly gay singer Adam Barta. During the debate Angelina said, "I don't think gays should be married. If you want to date each other fine." But now friends are saying the reality star felt tricked, as she didn’t realize the debate would be made public and never meant the hurtful things she said.

"I want to apologize to everyone I have offended. I have many gay friends and believe in equality for everyone," says Angelina, who is planning on going to a gay bar this week in New York City to show her support and apologize in person to members of the gay community.
