‘Snooki’ left ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ because it was best for her

The drama surrounding Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding broke the Jersey Shore family apart. Despite the men’s best efforts to pick up the pieces at Pivarnick’s ceremony, Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and Deena Cortese said they were done working with Pivarnick. In Polizzi’s case, she was done filming with Pivarnick for good. 

“I am retiring from Jersey Shore,” Polizzi explained on her podcast It’s Happening With Snooki and Joey. “I am not coming back for season four if there is one. Don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment.”

Polizzi mentioned how she felt like the show had become “so serious” and she didn’t “like the person [she was] portrayed as.” In an April 2020 interview with HelloGiggles, Polizzi added how she wasn’t “in the mood to do [the] drama with Angelina anymore.” She also expressed her desire to work on “fun shows.”

In addition to owning and operating an Etsy shop, Nicole’s Craft Room, Polizzi has two other business ventures: Meatball Merch and the Snooki Shop. Meatball Merch is an online retailer coined “the number one spot for all meatballs,” while the Snooki Shop is a brick-and-mortar store.
