What drove former "Jersey Shore" cast member Angelina Pivarnick from the show at the end of last month? According to her, dirty pranks and verbal absue from her housemates.

The reality starlet said that she was called names and had oilve oil and grated cheese put in her bed among other things, reports Us Magazine.

"I was bullied to the fullest sense," she said in an interview with the magazine.

Pivarnick claims that two of the shows breakout stars, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi ,were the main offenders.

The Situation called her "a dirty hamster," despite the fact that she cleaned the house often.

"Mike and Vinny [Guadagnino] would call me fat, call me a whale," she said.

The 24-year-old bartender also claimed that Snooki called her a "whore," and that she's unable to watch the show anymore.

"It bothers me hearing the names they call me, and that it looks like I'm the backstabber," she said. "My head is really f--ked up; I see a therapist, I cry a lot. It's probably going to take me a year to get over this. My mom got bleeding ulcers from the stress -- it's hard to watch her daughter go through what I did."

Pivarnick left the show after getting into a brawl with Snooki on the September 30 episode of the show.
