Jersey Shore: Family Vacation star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may have to face up to her past antics one day. She recently shared her worry about explaining her outrageous behavior, caught by MTV’s cameras, to her daughter Giovanna. Polizzi said she is “nervous” if her daughter asks “where’s your underwear” if and when she sees past series clips.
Nicole Polizzi behaved outrageously throughout ‘Jersey Shore’
Since the first moment Polizzi stepped foot into the show’s iconic Seaside Heights, New Jersey beach house in 2009, Jersey Shore has been dominated by her outrageous antics. She made her reality show debut at 22 and was ready for a summer of fun when she first arrived at the shore. Polizzi quickly made a name for herself as a party girl, and her drinking binges, loud behavior, and dance expertise were something fans of the series quickly came to know and love.
Throughout the initial 6 season run of Jersey Shore, Nicole laughed, loved, and partied hard from the Jersey shoreline to Miami, to Italy, where the show took the cast to film. Alongside castmates Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Angelina Pivarnick, Deena Cortese, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Polizzi was a tiny dynamo who was always in search of fun.
Some of Nicole Polizzi’s most memorable antics
Polizzi has been involved in some wild moments throughout the filming of Jersey Shore and Jersey Shore: Family Vacation. Her most iconic occurred after a night of partying followed by a day of drinking when she ran across the Seaside Heights boardwalk and asked, “Where’s the beach?” She promptly ran onto the hot sand, falling face down onto the shoreline before being carted off by cops for disorderly conduct.
She also fell off a bike, into bushes, down a set of stairs, and off a stage. Polizzi got into a car accident in Italy, ramming her vehicle into the back of a police car. On the first night, Polizzi hooked up with her future husband, Jionni LaValle; she was so intoxicated she couldn’t remember his name, so she called him Bernard. The reality star also helped write the infamous note with Farley that divided the house between Giancola and Magro,
The moment Nicole Polizzi fears her daughter will question
In an interview with Page Six, Polizzi realizes some on-camera moments her children, particularly daughter Giovanna, may question. While the reality star is not ashamed of her wild past, she understands that her kids may want to know just why their mother acted in a certain way.
“I’m really nervous about Giovanna seeing me do back handsprings in a dress and, like, my whole crotch is out. She’ll be like, ‘Mom, where’s your underwear?’ So that terrifies me,” Polizzi admitted.
“Getting arrested on the beach, and she’ll be like, ‘Mom, why are you getting arrested?’ So, stuff like that. I also feel like it could be a lesson to be like, ‘Kids, be way better than me because Mommy is a [expletive] show,’” she told us. “So, I feel like I can use it to my advantage.”
Nicole Polizzi proved even a mom of three can party
During the August 19 and 26th episodes of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Polizzi spent her 24 hours as a returning cast member blackout drunk. She began enjoying glasses of wine upon arriving at the show’s Poconos location and soon could not recall her actions. The reality star said she enjoyed time with her roommates away from her husband LaValle, daughter Giovanna, and sons Lorenzo and Angelo.
Castmembers welcomed back a long-forgotten extra character on the show, Dren, who only reappears when Polizzi gets drunk. “Don’t look Dren in the eye,” Farley told castmate Pivarnick upon her encounter with Polizzi’s drunk alter-ego.
