JERSEY SHORE diva JENNI “J-WOWW” FARLEY may have  tried to kill herself shortly after the preem of the MTV reality skein.

A former beau told that a crying Farley, 25, called ex-boyfriend and former manager TOM LIPPOLIS that days after the show preemed in 2009.

She told him she had “swallowed a bottle of pills” and  “insinuated that she tried to kill herself.”

 “I rushed home,”  Lippolis said, “and talked her out of the bathroom because she locked herself in.”

So, what upset J-WOWW ?

Said  Lippolis: “She was upset how  she was portrayed on national television!”

And, Lippolis added, she may have felt  some guilt  because she cheated on him with JerseyShore castmate Pauly D.
