Nicole ” Snooki” Polizzi gives the ‘deets’ about the Snooki Truck.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may be is gone but she’s not forgotten.
Nicole did participate in the filming of Season 4 of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” in a Nevada resort with the rest of the cast. The new season debuts with two episodes starting 8 p.m. EST Thursday, Nov. 19 on MTV.
The cast, and family members, decamp in a bubble at the Hilton Lake Las Vegas Resort and Spa in Henderson, Nevada, to soothe things out after Nicole, Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese’s speech-gone-wrong at Angelina Pivarnick’s wedding in the end of Season 3.
Nicole was in tears when Angelina ignored her and the roomies after the speech on the Season 3 finale.
“I’m quitting I think,” Nicole said. “I think this is it.”

That was a summation of what she had said on her “It’s Happening with Snooki and Joey” podcast in December of 2019, which aired before the season finale.
“Our show, ‘Jersey Shore,’ is about family and making fun of each other and having a good time and laughing and just knowing that it’s all in good fun,” said Polizzi on “It’s Happening.” “Lately, everything is so serious. It’s not about a team anymore.”
Chances are Nicole will be on TV again. Her name has been floated as a possible cast member of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.” Showrunner Andy Cohen said it’s legit.
“It’s something to keep our eyes out for,” said Cohen on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” in September.
Meanwhile, the cast of “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” is in a state of flux. Below are five candidates who could take Nicole’s spot in the “Jersey Shore” house.
Nicole’s spot in the hearts of fans is a different matter.
On the plus side, Maria is a New Jersey native. On the negative side, she doesn’t seem to have a really strong connection to the “Jersey Shore” cast despite her two seasons on “Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D and Vinny.” Her “porn date” with Vinny Guadagnino apparently never materialized.
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola
Attention Sammi, there’s a spot in the cast open. Sammi opted out of the “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” reboot in 2018 as she wanted to “avoid potentially toxic situations,” according to one of her Instagram posts. She famously had an on-again, off-again relationship with cast member Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.
The producers didn’t seem pleased that Sammi didn’t come on board for the reboot. They produced a life-sized Sammi doll for the cast to abuse on the first episodes. There was wedding drama between Sammi and the cast over who was invited to her since COVID-postponed wedding, but that seems to have been smoothed over when Sammi recently congratulated Deena Cortese on her baby
