Angelina from 'Jersey Shore' -- Rejected By Gloria Allred

Legal powerhouse Gloria Allred loves to take on FAMOUS clients ... so when former "Jersey Shore" star Angelina Pivarnick reached out to hire the famous attorney to sue MTV ... SHE SAID NO.

Our sources tell us, Angelina has a pretty big bone to pick with the network -- claiming she's been blacklisted from other jobs and it's all their fault. Specifically, we're told Angelina feels the network edits her appearances on "Shore" to make her look bad and has publicly humiliated her by rejecting her from MTV events.

We're told Angelina now wants to file a defamation lawsuit and reached out to Gloria first.

But the famous attorney  -- who has taken on high-profile clients like Scary Spice, Rachel Uchitel and Anthony Weiner's mistress -- wanted no part of her case.

We're told Gloria's office sent Angelina a letter saying that Gloria's current work load is just too damn big to fit her in.

Not to worry ... we hear Larry H. Parker is available.
