Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi has no regrets when it comes to her “Jersey Shore” antics — in fact, she embraces them.
The “Messyness” host, 33, is ready for the day that her three children with husband Jionni LaValle watch her reality TV debut, and she predicts it’ll be a teaching moment for them.
“I’m really nervous about Giovanna seeing me do back handsprings in a dress and, like, my whole crotch is out. She’ll be like, ‘Mom, where’s your underwear?’ So that terrifies me,” Polizzi told Page Six with a laugh in recent interview.
“Getting arrested on the beach, and she’ll be like, ‘Mom, why are you getting arrested?’ So, stuff like that.”
The reality star shares sons Lorenzo, 9, and Angelo, 2, and daughter Giovanna, 6, with LaValle, 34.
“I also feel like it could be a lesson to be like, ‘Kids, be way better than me because Mommy is a s–t show,’” she told us. “So, I feel like I can use it to my advantage.”
Polizzi made a name for herself on the MTV show, which aired from 2009 until 2012. She appeared on the first three seasons of the reunion series, “Jersey Shore: Family Vacation,” from 2018 until 2020, but took a break after her speech at co-star Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding caused drama among the cast.
“I [left] 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,” she said at the time of her departure. “That’s when I’m like, ‘I’m out.’
“It was really hard, but I had to think about my happiness and where I really wanted myself to be, and it’s being a mom and being [with my] kids and not drama and drinking.”
Polizzi briefly returned to “Family Vacation” in a recent episode as the cast visited the Poconos for Jenni “JWoww” Farley’s birthday.
“Jersey Shore: Family Vacation” airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on MTV, and “Messyness” airs weeknights at 7 p.m. ET on MTV.
