Il reality show di MTV “Jersey Shore” è stato presentato in anteprima nel 2009 e ha seguito otto coinquilini che trascorrevano l’estate in una casa per le vacanze a Seaside Heights, nel New Jersey, per Entertainment Tonight. Il cast di “Jersey Shore” includeva Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Paul “Pauly D” DelVecchio, Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Angelina Pivarnick e Ronnie Ortiz. Magro. Hanno vissuto la loro vita ad alta voce e davanti alla telecamera, con il loro stile di vita pieno di pugni, GTL (gym-tanning-laundry)e un telefono a papera di legno che riattacca quando non dovrebbe. Quando Pivarnick ha lasciato lo show dopo la seconda stagione, Deena Cortese ha preso il suo posto. I fan hanno adorato seguire le buffonate dei coinquilini (spesso ubriachi) per sei stagioni fino alla fine della serie nel 2012.
Despite how tight-knit the group of beach babes and their extended families may be, Polizzi has discovered that one of her former roommates has blocked her on social media.
Snooki has lost touch with one of her former roommates
When the cast reunited for 2018's "Jersey Shore Family Vacation," one of the original members decided not to return to the shore in any iteration — or at least none that would be televised. Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola refused to return, saying on Instagram, "I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially toxic situations." She added, "It was a difficult decision, as I love my roomies." Instead, she's been enjoying a mostly camera-free lifestyle (except on social media) with her fiance, Justin May, and promoting her clothing company, Sweetheart Styles.
Despite attempts from Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and other "Jersey Shore" alums to keep in touch with Giancola and bring her back to the show, she doesn't seem to want that. "We tried to get her back, like, two years ago, all of us texting her saying, 'Come for one dinner. Why not?'" Polizzi told E! News. "And she's just always like, 'No, I'll never do that show again.' We didn't want to push it." When Polizzi tried to reach out more recently, messaging Giancola on social media, she discovered she had been blocked. "I don't know what I did," Polizzi said. "It's unfortunate because we would love for her to come back."
Previous efforts to reconnect with Giancola haven't succeeded either. "Some of the cast members have tried reaching out, but she hasn't responded to them lately," a source told Us Weekly in 2019. "They would really like to still be friends."
