Nicole Polizzi announced she is retiring from ‘Jersey Shore’
The reality star revealed to her fans that she’s no longer going to do the show. She gave the main reason behind her decision.
“OK, you guys, I love you so much, and don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment, and I am retiring from Jersey Shore,” Polizzi announced on It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey. “I am not coming back to Jersey Shore [Family Vacation] for a season 4, if there is one. And there’s a lot of reasons why, but the main reason is really … I’m just like, I just can’t do it anymore.”
She then said, “I hate being away from the kids. I don’t like partying three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore. And I wanna be home with the kids. You know, like, I don’t mind here and there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show.”
There is a rumor she also left because of Angelina Pivarnick
Polizzi reportedly wasn’t getting along with Pivarnick before her exit. There was a lot of drama at Pivarnick’s wedding and Polizzi doesn’t seem happy with how it’ll play out on the show.
“Nicole felt the show was heading in a direction that she wasn’t happy with so she left the show…She did not like how everything played out after Angelina [Pivarnick’s] wedding and feels she’s being painted unfairly,” a source told Hollywood Life. “[Snooki] feels awful and never tried to ruin her day.”
Deena Cortese and Jenni Farley were also reportedly part of the drama. “Deena, Snooki and Jenni, in their speeches, made some jokes about Angelina,” a source told Us Weekly. “The audience at the wedding booed them.”
The co-stars reportedly weren’t trying to be mean with their speeches. “Their jokes were all in good fun, but they didn’t land and some didn’t think they were kind,” said the source.
Does Pivarnick want to work with them after that? She talked about how she feels about being in the cast after the incident.
Pivarnick said she won’t quit the show
Chances are the Jersey Shore cast will look different after Polizzi’s retirement. But Pivarnick isn’t going anywhere.
She was asked if she enjoys being in the cast. “I am,” Pivarnick told Page Six. “I’m not quitting the show.” The reality star did acknowledge some of the drama that is between her and the other cast members.
“I don’t know what the future holds for me with everything, but I like the way things are coming out — it’s just that one thing,” she said.
It looks like Pivarnick is staying in while Polizzi is out. Fans will have to wait to see the episode showing Pivarnick’s wedding.
