Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is headed back to the Jersey Shore – but this time, she’ll be cleaning up messes instead of being the mess. Earlier today, Nicole and her husband, Jionni LaValle, announced that they’ll be starring in a new reality series, Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip. The premise reminds me of Flip or Flop – which I love – on HGTV. Nicole and Jionni will be flipping, with their own money, homes ravaged by Hurricane Sandy.
Nicole shared, “With spending so many summers growing up at the shore, and then finding love there with Jionni, we couldn’t think of a more perfect place to start our business together. Jionni has always wanted to flip houses, and with my love for interior design <she did an amazing job with her own house> and do-it-yourself crafts, this project is a dream come true. We are excited to bring our passions to television and can’t wait for our fans to see us on this journey.”

The press release from FYI:
FYI has ordered new original series Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip from Entertainment One (eOne), it was announced today by Gena McCarthy, Senior Vice President of Programming and Development for FYI. Nicole Polizzi, reality TV personality turned interior design maven and entrepreneur, will star alongside her husband, Jionni Lavalle, as they start a new business together flipping homes on the New Jersey shore. Production has already begun on eight one-hour episodes, with the series slated to premiere in early 2016.
“Millennials have grown up with Nicole, and we’re excited to now partner with her and Jionni as they start their first business flipping homes,” said McCarthy. “With Nicole’s crafty and creative ideas and Jionni’s background as a contractor and builder, this series combines renovation, design, and family comedy in a docu-series approach to the home makeover genre.”
Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip will follow the couple, along with their family and close friends, as they undertake their first business venture into flipping a home together. This will be no walk on the beach, as viewers will see Nicole and Jionni juggle the day-to-day challenges of undertaking a massive home renovation and design, on top of managing work endeavors and the equally as demanding job of raising two young children. With their own money and reputations on the line, viewers will see Nicole and Jionni do what it takes to complete the home renovation and flip a profit.
“There’s like a million places where Sandy affected houses down here,” Nicole said on her podcast, Naturally Nicole. “Basically the main premise of our show is that we’re going to fix up all the houses that haven’t been fixed up yet from Sandy, flipping them, and then selling them to a family who wants to live down the shore.”
Nicole added that we’ll see little bits of Lorenzo and Giovanni, because it’s still a reality show and being parents, first and foremost, is Nicole and Jionni’s reality, but not too much because she wants her kids to be kids. When Snooki & JWoww ended, Jenni Farley shared, “I think both Snooki and I want our kids to grow up having normal lives and not be in front of the cameras 24/7.”
Jionni: “New show coming! Nicole and I are flipping houses down the shore! #houseflippers #rebuildtheshore #shoreflip”
Nicole: “WOHOO! So excited to announce mine and Jionni’s newest business venture: our new show, flipping homes on the Jersey Shore! You can see it all go down on our new TV series “Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip” on FYI! Coming in 2016!!”
Congratulations to Nicole and Jionni on their new show! We wouldn’t miss it!
