Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi met her husband (and father of her two children) Jionni LaValle back when she filmed Jersey Shore from 2009-2012. Now that the cast is reuniting for Jersey Shore Family Vacation, some onlookers are trying to start the rumor that she has left him, supported by the evidence that she was photographed taking off with luggage.
Jionni wasn't having that, so he shut it down on Instagram (via PEOPLE).
“My wife is filming a scene packing up and leaving for her new show and I AM CHOOSING TO NOT be on TV because I simply DO NOT like it,” he said. “Nicole and I are doing great and became even stronger together while raising our beautiful kids. HOWEVER you will not see me on her reality show. Being a reality star was never something I wanted to be when I grew up. I own my own business and work hard at it, that’s what I do.”
He starred with her on one season of the remodeling show Nicole and Jionni's Shore Flip for FYI, but don't expect to see him on TV again.
“My wife is a reality star and works hard at that, that’s what she does,” he wrote. “We ARE not divorced. For the HATERS I hope this message find you and confuses you even more about life and for the FANS of my wife and her show…I got your back!!! God Bless Yas!”
Now that this has been cleared up, viewers have the chance to determine where the Jersey Shore crew is headed for their trip.
