Snooki Polizzi Rhonj Cast Rumors

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s days as a Jersey Shore cast member are officially behind her, but does that mean she’s gearing up for a season of a new television show? It has recently been rumored that the mom of three could be joining The Real Housewives of New Jersey for Season 11, but Snooki has squashed the speculation. 

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of New Jersey on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

On September 16, Snooki responded to an Instagram post from the account @rhonjobsessed, which had previously posted about the casting rumors, noting, “Jersey Shore fans convinced Snooki is joining RHONJ after star is spotted in the same town as Teresa Giudice and Melissa Gorga!” 

“Idk how this started but I have not been asked to be a Housewife,” Snooki commented on the post, adding, “Sowwyyyyy.” 

Cast member Melissa Gorga commented on a post revealing that Snooki had confirmed the rumor was untrue. It sounds like she's disappointed in the news, as she wrote, “Damn it!”

Although Snooki won’t be creating her own RHONJ tagline or sitting down for a reunion any time soon, there are definitely some similarities between her and Melissa. Both women own boutiques in the Garden State. The Snooki Shop is located in Madison, while Envy by Melissa Gorga is in Montclair. 

Although their kids are not the same ages, the Jersey moms are both parents to two sons and one daughter. 

They also each seem to love spending their summers with family at the Jersey Shore!
