‘Jersey Shore’: Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley, and Deena Cortese Miss Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola
Despite the disconnect from their former roommate, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Deena Cortese miss their Jersey Shore co-star Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. The women of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation still consider Giancola a friend, but they don’t think they’ll be invited to her upcoming nuptials to fiancé Christian Biscardi.
Sammi’ Sweetheart’ Giancola moved on from ‘Jersey Shore’
Giancola spent several years in a toxic relationship with Ronnie Ortiz-Magro on the original Jersey Shore. When the reunion special and spinoff series Jersey Shore: Family Vacation was announced, Giancola was invited back to film, but declined.
Instead, she chose to focus on her career and relationship with her then-boyfriend Biscardi so as to “avoid potentially toxic situations.” Giancola explained her decision in an Instagram post in March of 2018.
I have chosen not to join the show this season because I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my businesses and relationship. I am not the same person as I was when I was 22. At 31, I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially toxic situations. I will forever be grateful to Jersey Shore and everything it has brought to me!Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola, Instagram
Sammi ‘Sweetheart’s ‘Jersey Shore’ co-stars miss her
The three Jersey Shore moms still consider Giancola a friend regardless of what happened in the past. In an interview with In Touch, Polizzi, Cortese, and Farley revealed that they missed Giancola’s friendship. “We haven’t spoken to her in a while,” Cortese admitted. “[Sammi] came to my baby shower and she met CJ and then we kind of lost touch,” she added.
“I just think time drifted [us] apart, which sucks,” Polizzi explained. After the original Jersey Shore series ended, Giancola’s tumultuous relationship with Ortiz-Magro ended — as well as her ties to the women on the series.
Will the ‘Jersey Shore’ cast be invited to Sammi’ Sweetheart’s wedding?
During their interview, Polizzi pointed out that she believes Giancola’s wedding is coming up. Giancola has yet to announce a date officially, but she does have a wedding dress picked out.
Neither Polizzi nor any of her other roommates have received an invitation, so it’s unlikely they’ll be invited to Giancola’s ceremony. Farley pointed out why Giancola might be struggling with whether or not to invite them, saying: “[Sammi] came from a TV show that she clearly doesn’t want to be a part of anymore. So, there’s probably that give and take of having us part of certain — I don’t know. I wish we could talk to her about it.”
“We wish her nothing but the best,” Cortese concluded. Polizzi wishes they could have gone, but expressed similar sentiments.

In that same interview, Polizzi also addressed her leaving the show. While she’ll miss all of her roommates, she still stands by her decision to leave and spend more time with her kids. One thing she won’t miss? “Drama,” Polizzi said, adding, “I just want to have a good time, so any aspects of drama I’m not gonna miss.”
While it’s likely Giancola won’t be inviting the Jersey Shore crew to her wedding, her former roommates still hold Giancola in high regard and wish her nothing but happiness moving forward.
