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.”
4PM – UPDATE: Snooki took to Instagram to speak out about the allegations.
“This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband “allegedly” signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn’t be any further from the truth. But now seeing how it’s the “news of the day” and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that’s why I married him. He’s a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world. The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like “Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison” is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about… HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn’t even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what’s up. So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website. @jlavalle5 #myfamilyrocks”
The Ashley Madison hack seems poised to single-handedly implode reality TV’s marriages! First Josh Duggar was caught, then Josh Taekman‘s account was unearthed, and now Snooki’s husband Jionni LaValle is being accused of secretly utilizing the services of the cheater website!
Reports are swirling that Jionni’s email has been found amid the copious data from the Ashley Madison leak. Jionni married Snooki on reality television last November, and the couple has two children together. They have had their ups and downs, but for the most part appeared to be pretty stable and low-key (Although Snooki was accused of cheating on Jionni in the past. #BeerGoggles).
While it isn’t exactly what I thought Jionni LaValle would be doing two days after his wedding to Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, I’d say that a court appearance for a recent DUI puts him right up there with the behavior we’ve come to expect from reality stars. Sure, he married the fist-pumping, alligator loving, Britney-flashing, publicly intoxicated meatball from Jersey Shore, but Jionni always seemed to be the mature one…the voice of reason…the one who, you know, calmed the orange beast.
Obviously, there is nothing funny about drunk driving, but I have to say I am in shock that he was able to keep the arrest under wraps. That’s how we know he’s not a true reality star–his bad judgment wasn’t a catalyst for publicity! I doubt it’s even featured on the final season of Snooki & JWoww….
Snooki wore two dresses, a traditional gown for the ceremony and a Gatsby-inspired dress (seen above) for the reception. Snooki and Jionni’s wedding will be featured on Snooki & JWoww. See more photos from the wedding below.
I know I say it every time I have to write about Snookiand company, but seriously, did any of you see this coming? I loved Jersey Shore, but I never thought the cast would end up actually maturing into calm, functioning members of society…and making cute babies to boot! Sure it was fun to watch them face plant in bars, fist pump in clubs, and tan until they were more orange than an Oompah Loompah, but I didn't realize it would be just as much fun to see the kind of people they've become. GTL4LIFE! Cabs ah heeya!
Snooki has since traded alligator slippers for diapers with the absolutely precious Lorenzo, and she's planning her dream wedding to fiance Jionni LaValle. The couple is expecting their second child together, and he or she will totally be besties with JWoww'supcoming new addition (a girl!)! In an adorable video posted by the reality star, Snooki and Lorenzo learn the gender of the new baby. Jionni has planned a reveal, and it's hilarious to see their reactions!
Blue or pink–what do you think?

I have a confession to make: I love (and miss) those crazy kids from Jersey Shore. Admittedly, I wasn't onboard when MTV's train wreck originally started, and my dear friends who raved about it and subsequently got me hooked piddled off after the second season. I didn't. Granted, I had to watch it for Reality Tea, but I so would have watched regardless…however, it was nice to have the guise of the blog to hide my true addiction. I could GTL (well, technically just "L") with the best of them. On the rare occasion I call for a taxi, I whisper "cabs a heeya" to myself when it arrives. True story.
Vanderpump Rules' Scheana Marie recently said that wedding spin-offs are "boring," and it's the only thing on which I will EVER agree with her. However, I'd totally watch Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi walk down the aisle. Of course, I'd want the entire gang (sans Jolie Trashbags) involved. Alas, I don't think I'll get my wish of televised Seaside nuptials (although my fingers remain crossed!), but it seems that Snooki's wedding to fiance (and dad of the cutest tiny guido gorilla juicehead toddler) Jionni LaValle is full steam ahead. After a year long engagement, Snooki has finally started planning the exciting event!
Just a few minutes ago Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) announced that she and fiance Jionni LaValle have secretly tied the knot.
Snooki writes, "Jionni and I eloped!!! Here's a pic of the magical day!". Snooki included a shot of what might have been their secret wedding ceremony.
I immediately want to believe the former Jersey Shore star because they seem like the type of couple who would rather have a "normal" media-free wedding day, but there's a part of me that's a little cautious today since it IS April Fool's Day.
What do you think? Is Snooki pulling a prank? Or is she purposely announcing it today to make us wonder if it's the real deal or not?
UPDATED: Snooki shared tonight: "APRIL FOOLS ya freaks!! My ass is gonna have a huge wedding lets be serious!! lololol". So there we go….
