If you had told me back in 2010 that a post-Jersey Shore Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi would appear on additional reality shows, my money would have been on Celebrity Rehab or some other franchise that reeks of Dr. Drew. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the fist pumping, cahhb cahhlling, Sunday dinner eating, GTL-ing, DTF-ing, Shore Store employees probably more than the average fan, but I didn’t really predict any sort of staying power. Of course, we all know I’m an idiot.
Not only has most of the cast matured and done very well for themselves, Snooki went on to star in a reality spin-off with bestie Jenni “J-Woww” Farley(with another one on the way!). She got married to Jionni LaValle, and the couple has two ridiculously precious children. While she still has a penchant for all things animal print, those giant sneaker slippers (I’m hoping) are a thing of the past. That’s right, guys, our little meatball is all grown up, and she’s embarking on a new reality endeavor for the FYI network. I think this is what is known as “adulting.”
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.”
Don’t these tabloid people know that you should never, ever, piss off a pregnant woman? That is, unless you want to feel her wrath. That’s exactly what happened to Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley recently when she read a story about herself in Star Magazine that was clearly not true. The magazine, known for publishing fabricated stories, decided to share one with a “witness” who watched Farley get drunk while she was expecting. You can only imagine what happened next.
Let’s just say that the Snooki and JWoww star, who also just found out that she is expecting a baby boy, was not too happy with the magazine, and immediately went on a social media rant about the false story, blasting the magazine. What’d she say? Hop inside to find out!

Wait, already? Wasn’t it just yesterday that Jenni ‘JWoww’ Farley revealed that she was expecting another baby? It sure does, but time certainly does seem to fly. Or maybe it’s because she just made the pregnancy announcement in October. And while she is due in May of 2016, Farley recently revealed that she and Roger found out whether or not she is having a boy or a girl this time around. It seems kind of soon, doesn’t it?
In any event, JWoww took to her website recently to share the news. “Roger and I have said from the beginning that, just like it was with Meilani, it does not matter which gender our baby is, as long as he or she is healthy. Still, we are so excited to be expecting a,” Farley wrote. But y’all have come inside to find out if it’s a boy or a girl.

My name is Erin and I am a former Jersey Shore fan. Okay, that’s over with. Phew!
Back when Nicole (Snooki) Polizzi was just a wee little pickle-eating, hot tub-defiling Jersey Shore cast member, we might have gazed into her future and thought: women’s prison? pole dancer? But I, for one, did not conjure up “self help guru.” Alas, that is the alternate universe we are living in, folks! (Wait – am I in Hot Tub Time Machine and just don’t know it yet?)
This week, Snooki has taken to Instagram to share the publication news of her fifth – yes, fifth – book, Strong Is the New Sexy: A Kick Ass Memoir. “My 5th book is ready for pre-sale & coming out officially October 13!!! Doing tons of book signings and can’t wait to meet you!” gushed Snooki.
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).
Since her Jersey Shore days, Snookihas built herself quite an empire and (wisely) didn’t put all of her eggs in the “reality star” basket. She’s left her party days behind her and swapped out her Shore house for this house, and is raising two adorable kids with her husband. Nicole is writing books, getting crafty, running her clothing and accessory lines, selling her perfumes, slippers and a million other products and managing other side gigs. The never-out-of-energy star announced this week that she has written her fifth book!
Snooki shared on Instagram that her newest book, “Strong is the New Sexy: A Kickass Memoir” will hit shelves in October. The fitness buff is going to talk about her road to living a positive and healthy life and share advice on what other women can do to be strong and positive. She shared a photo of the book cover, “So excited for my new book!!! Strong is the new sexy- how to live a positive life!”
It’s very rare that I think a reality star makes a decision that’s not rooted in becoming more famous. Maturity seems sparse among them, and if you’d asked five years ago if I considered any of the Jersey Shore folks to be “mature” I would have laughed in your face after screaming “GTL, beeatches!”
My, how times have changed. Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley became household names as they drunkenly face planted in the sand and fist pumped in the sluttiest of Shore Store apparel. Of course, over time, both girls fell in love and started families with the orangest of gorilla juiceheads. We got to see the progression on later seasons of Jersey Shore and on their tamer spin-off Snooki & JWoww. However, now the best friends are committed to raising their families off of MTV. Wait, what? Reality stars rejecting reality television? I can’t even.
