Snooki Reveals Why She Decided to Quit Jersey Shore: I Can’t Take the Drama and Drinking!
In case you somehow haven’t heard, the nation was devastated — devastated! — last week by the news that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is retiring from Jersey Shore.
Shore might have made Snooki famous, but it’s equally true that — perhaps more than anyone else — Snooki made Jersey Shore.
Now, it’s the end of an era, as Snooki has announced that she will no longer take part in the phenomenon she helped to create.
“I am not coming back to Jersey Shore [Family Vacation] for a season 4, if there is one,” she revealed on her podcast last Friday.
“There’s a lot of reasons why, but the main reason is really … I’m just like, I just can’t do it anymore.”
“You know, when I leave my kids and I film the show, like, I want to have a good time,” Snooki said at the time.
“And I’m putting myself out there, and I just wanna come off as a good person. And lately, on the show, it’s just been very drama.”
Now, Snooki is elaborating on those comments and admitting that despite apparent evidence to the contrary, the good times have been hard to come by in recent seasons, and she’s simply not having fun anymore.
“I think when I was, like, actually forcing myself to be in a situation that I wasn’t happy in. Like, I was forcing myself to be ‘happy,’ and I’m like, ‘That’s not me.’ I’m not genuinely happy,”
