Snooki Weighs in on Sammi’s Absence from “Jersey Shore” Reunion Series

Posted by Jeanne on December 8, 2017

When the Jersey Shore reunion was announced, people immediately noticed that Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola was not anywhere to be seen. Since she had also former castmate, Deena Cortese’s, wedding recently, rumors began swirling. It didn’t take long, however, for Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi to weigh in on the matter, though.

Polizzi believes that Sammi doesn’t want to end up with more drama involving her ex, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. “Everyone’s asking why Sammi’s not doing it. You have to ask her that — I’m not gonna speak for her,” the 30-year-old said in a recent podcast on  It’s Happening With Snooki & Joey. “But Sammi is just in such a happy place that I feel like she doesn’t want to jump back into that drama if it does happen. And being that there was a lot of Ron and Sam drama when we did film, it was just really hard on both of them. So I just think she doesn’t want that anymore.”

Anyone who has watched the show will be familiar with the volatile relationship between Giancola and Ortiz-Magro. The pair were the first members of the show back in 2009 and it didn’t take long for a romance to bloom. Unfortunately, they finally ended things in 2014.

Still, Polizzi says she has tried to reassure Sammi that it won’t be like old times. “… We’re just like, it’s gonna be different. We’re all begging her to come back on the show. It’s really up to her. Everyone pray that Sammi comes back, because I feel like she might change her mind. So Sam, if you’re listening, come to the show. Like, stop being — stop it. Stop it right now before I spank you.”

Here’s hoping we see Sammi, in some capacity. You can’t help but empathize with her, though. Who wants to spend a bunch of time with someone who broke your heart?
