Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi Talks Motherhood, Partying, And More With Brandi Glanville


On Brandi Glanville‘s podcast, she talked to reality TV star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. As a former fan of Jersey Shore, Brandi gushed about how much Nicole has changed. “I’ve actually watched her blossom into a beautiful young woman,” she said. “I’m proud of her. I feel like a mama bear.”

Mama Bear went on to talk over her little cub constantly and complain about the media’s obsession with her partying. I mean, she got wasted one time in ten months on her birthday. Get. Over. It. If Nicole were an itty-bitty cub in need of a Mama Bear, she’d be better off being raised by a pack of rabid wolves.

Despite Brandi‘s insufferable whining, Nicole managed to talk a little bit about how motherhood has changed her, her own new podcast, Naturally Nicole, her friendship with Jenni “JWoww” Farley, and when fans can expect Snooki & JWoww to return.


When asked about motherhood, Nicole said, “OMG. I love it. I’m obsessed.”

Nicole admitted that she’s nervous about being a mom to two though. “I do have that little break where if Lorenzo does take a nap, I have the time to relax or do something. With two kids, I’m not going to have that, so I’m freaking out about it.”

Brandi assured Nicole, the kids will be best friends and entertain themselves, giving her free time. Eventually.

Nicole expressed concern over her ability to love her second child as much as she loves Lorenzo, and Brandi said, “It’s a different love but it’s still just as amazing. They’re the one true loves of your life. True love is being a mother.”

Moving on, Nicole mentioned filming season four of Snooki & JWoww, and Brandi took the opportunity to ask if she and Jenni were friends in real life.

“Oh yeah,” said Nicole. “In reality, sometimes you’re forced to hand out with people. But, me and Jenni, we’re definitely the real deal. I talk to her all the time and we hang out even when we don’t film. I love the fact that we have that true relationship.”

Brandi asked Nicole to give party girls everywhere her best advice. “Get it out of your system,” she advised. “If you don’t and you have a baby and you get married and you still want to go out and do those tings, then that’s a problem”

Nicole continued, “I started Jersey Shore when I just turned 21. So that was my time, cause I never had a fake ID and I never got to go to the bars, so that was really my first time partying, going out, and going crazy. I partied so much I got it out of my system. When I met Jionni, I was ready to settle down. I didn’t really want to go to the clubs anymore. Once I had Lorenzo, I was just done. I would rather be home with my family than go to the club and get wasted.”

Brandi said she could relate, because she had a fake ID at 16, partied hard from 16-23, met Eddie, and settled down. Nicole said she still goes out with her girlfriends, of course, but it’s usually a laid back night out for dinner and wine. Brandi said she could relate, because she doesn’t party hard anymore either. Um, OK.

“You have to make a little grown up time,” insisted Brandi. “You just don’t need to be dancing on tables and taking your shirt off. If you do it one time in ten months, they’re going to think that is you every single night, from one picture or one stupid thing you say.”

Nicole added, “People are assholes.”

“They really are,” agreed Brandi. “It’s like, ‘Go f–k yourself. It’s my birthday.’ I’m going to get bombed on my birthday; it’s gonna happen. But, it just keeps going on, everyone has to talk about it. All my friends are like, ‘You just have to stay home.’ Who wants to stay home and drink? I feel like that’s desperado.”

When asked about her podcast, Nicole shared, “It’s called Naturally Nicole. I’m trying to show everybody the real side of me. When people think of Snooki, they think of Jersey Shore, and that’s just not who I am anymore. I want people to get to know me as a mother and just me as Nicole, who I really am.”

Naturally Nicole‘s topics include motherhood, fitness, celebrity gossip, and celebrity guests. Mark your calendars, Nicole said Snooki & JWoww is set to return in November.
