As previously announced and later revealed on the Season 3 finale, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi said she would be leaving the show.

The episode followed Angelina Pivarnick‘s wedding to Chris Larangeira last November, which spiraled into drama.

“I just love my roomies, always. Jersey Shore is literally my life. I never would have met my best friends, so the fact that is has to end like this, for me, it really sucks,” she said during the episode.

Jersey Shore originally debuted in 2009, and was later rebooted as Family Vacation in 2018 with the original cast, minus Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola.

Here is what Snooki originally said about retiring from the show last year…

Snooki's Exit from 'Jersey Shore' Explained in Season Finale

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has left the MTV series Jersey Shore after a cringeworthy moment in the show’s latest season finale.

Angelina Pivarnick‘s wedding to Chris Larangeira was the focus of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation‘s season finale on Thursday (June 18) and there was plenty of drama in the episode.

Snooki, JWoww, and Deena Cortese gave a speech at the wedding and Angelina was not happy with some of the jokes that were made. In a confessional, she said, “It’s the wrong f–king place. It’s the wrong time. You don’t do this at somebody’s wedding.”

After confrontations with Angelina, Snooki made the decision to leave the show. She told Deena, “I’m quitting, I think. I think this is it. This is not fun.”

In Snooki‘s confessional, she said, “I just love my roomies, always. Jersey Shore is literally my life. I never would have met my best friends, so the fact that is has to end like this, for me, it really sucks.”

Snooki previously announced that she was leaving the show back in December 2019.

During the episode, she said she “can’t believe [she’s] saying this,” but it’s “what is best for [her] at the moment.”

“I love you so much, and don’t hate me for my decision…I am retiring from Jersey Shore. I am not coming back to Jersey Shore for season four if there is one,” she said.

“The main reason is really … I just can’t do it anymore. Literally, leaving my kids to film it is really, really hard on me. I try and quit every single day. I quit every time we film because I just hate being away from the kids. I don’t like partying three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore. I want to be home with the kids. I don’t mind here and there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard for me to leave the kids and film the show,” she continued to explain.

She also said the show has become “been very drama” and “so serious.”

“For me, I don’t want that and I’m not leaving my kids days on end to film this show when that’s the result of it, I just don’t like the turnout of it and I don’t like the person I’m being portrayed as. This is getting a little too much. At 32 years old and with three kids, if I’m doing a reality show I just want it to be fun and light-hearted and lately it’s not like that and the show is getting so dramatic,” she revealed.

She also said her family receives “death threats,” which is “just a lot and not something I signed up for with this show.”

“I’m not saying goodbye…I just need to move on from the show because I don’t like the direction it’s going in when it comes to the drama and the cattiness.”

Snooki Claps Back at Mommy Shamers for Drinking Wine While Feeding Infant Son

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is sticking up for herself against mommy shamers.

The 31-year-old Jersey Shore star took to Instagram on Saturday (July 27) to share a photo of herself sipping on a glass of red wine while propping up 2-month-old son Angelo‘s bottle of milk with her chin.

“‘What’s mom life like with 2 kids and a newborn?’ THIS. #MomJuice #ImAGoodMomISwear,” Snooki captioned the below post.

One critic then commented on the photo, writing, “You not suppose to drink alcohol if you breastfeeding your baby.”

“You’re not a mom,” Snooki responded. “I allow myself to have a few glasses once a week to stay sane with 3 kids. I do what’s necessary to clean my milk for my baby. Let a mawma live and keep being 17.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a baby is not going to be harmed by consuming breast milk from a mother who consumes one drink a day, especially if she waits at least two hours after drinking it to nurse.
