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.”
