‘Jersey Shore’ Star Shades Co-Stars During Reboot Premiere

Fans were stunned when one of the most beloved cast members of Jersey Shore shaded their former castmates during the debut of MTV’s hotly anticipated Jersey Shore Family Vacation.

Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola opted out of the much-hyped reboot series, instead deciding to focus on her “business and relationship.”

Sammi cited in a lengthy Instagram post she wanted “to avoid potentially toxic situations,” which is why she chose not to take part in the reboot series.


Although she did not physically appear in the kickoff episode of the new series, which stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Jenni “JWoww” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Pauly “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Deena Nicole Cortese, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, Sammi was spoken of frequently throughout the show’s April 5 debut.

Midway through the premiere of Jersey Shore Family Reunion, Sammi took to her Twitter and noted one cast member’s kindness towards her.

“I love my @DeenaNicoleMTV,” she stated on the social media site.

Throughout the episode, Deena spent the majority of the episode sticking up for Sammi, who was lovingly roasted by her former roommates for not attending the reunion via a talking Sammi doll brought to the cast’s new Miami home via Pauly.

Deena also had some strong words for Sam’s ex-Ronnie during the episode, after she felt he was disrespecting her friend.

The two got into a heated argument after Ronnie told Deena that Sam clearly didn’t care enough about any of her former friends to partake in the Miami fun.

Sammi shaded her former roommates by favoring several fan tweets slamming her pals on Twitter.

“@SammiSweetheart girllll … why were they so shady tonight. Damn, they miss you. Lol! I know you got to be so unbothered. Ronnie feeling some type of way I guess. That what happens when you do a good person wrong. #ByeFelicia,” one fan wrote.

In another tweet favorited by Sam, a fan criticized Ronnie, whom they felt disrespected his ex in the episode.

“Ronnie is literally the last man I would ever associate with on planet earth! @SammiSweetheart is a genius for not getting herself mixed up with that dude again!”

Sammi and Ron dated on and off throughout the show’s three-year run and in 2012, the couple moved in together.

Ron revealed in the episode that Sam wanted to get married and gave him a six-month deadline.

He then admitted that he cheated on Sam, sealing the fate of their tempestuous relationship.


Do you think the roommates were fair to Sammi during the show’s premiere episode?

Jersey Shore Family Vacation airs Thursdays on MTV.
