Fans were shocked when Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, announced she was leaving Jersey Shore for good in December.

During a December 6th episode of her podcast, It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey, she confessed, “I’m gonna throw up. OK, you guys, I love you so much and don’t hate me for my decision, but I have to do what’s best for me at the moment, and I am retiring from Jersey Shore,” and also confirmed that if there was another season of the show, she will not be returning.

During this podcast, she mentions the spine to her decision, “I don’t like partying like three days in a row, it’s just not my life anymore and I wanna be home with the kids,”

“[W]hen I leave my kids and I film the show, I want to have a good time, and I’m putting myself out there,” the television star continued. “I just wanna come off as a good person and lately on the show, it’s just been very drama … lately it’s just like everything is so serious.”

What About This Season Though?

On February 25th, Snooki took to Instagram to share what fans can expect from her this season. Her comments read, “I filmed this season prior to quitting,” and “We filmed this season last summer.”

But the road to this decision wasn't easy. According to Us Weekly, Mike Sorento, also known as The Situation, he begged and begged Snooki to reconsider.

“I didn’t agree with it, but I have to support my sister,” Sorrentino explained. He went further to describe her response.

“I had texted her, called her and tried to convince her to reconsider but she has to do what’s right for her and we have to support her as a family.”

But The Situation is still crossing his fingers for the future. He says, “Maybe she’ll come back and revisit, maybe she’ll have a change of heart. Who knows? I’m hopeful for the future.”

Vinny Guadagnino, fellow Jersey Shore star also told Us Weekly his thoughts on the matter. He says the work to home life balance has become too difficult for Snooki to handle.

“It’s like, you want to do this thing so bad but you get pulled back in to your newborn baby and stuff,” Guadagnino began. This is in reference to May of 2019, in which Polizzi gave birth to her third baby.

“So hopefully, she can find a way — if there is one out there — to balance both. But right now, the scale, I think, was kind of tipping toward, it wasn’t working out.”

Regardless of whether fans can expect to see Snooki on any further episodes, she's sure to keep in touch on social media.
