There have been just as many off-screen dramas, like when Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi left the show during Pivarnick’s wedding festivities, after the bridesmaids’ toast – made roast – went wrong. But, like a real family, they got back together.
“I just needed a reset button because I’m not good at confrontation and drama,” said Polizzi, who announced in 2019 that she was leave the show. “Like, that really puts a damper on me, so I really needed to take some time. But then, looking at the roommates from the season I wasn’t around, I was like, ‘Oh my God they miss me. Like, that’s crazy. Like, come on girl, collect your shit. I was ready to come back and, you know, be with my friends. “
