‘Jersey Shore’ fans were hit with some sweet nostalgia after Sammi made an appearance over the weekend at former castmate Deena Cortese’s baby shower. Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola enjoyed a day out with her castmates and everyone seemed happy with her being around. She posted a number of photos on Instagram of the reunion and the photos featured Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Angelina Pivarnick and Jenni “JWoww” Farley.
All the negativity seems to be in the past now for Sammi. Her exit in March was quite emotional with her leaving the show saying she’s doing so to avoid “potentially toxic situations” in her life. “I am not the same as I was when I was 22. At 31, I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially toxic situations,” she said. “However, it was a difficult decision as I love my roomies. I’ve decided to focus on me, my future and what truly makes me happy. I will forever be grateful to Jersey Shore and everything it has brought to me! I’ve just decided to live my life for me these days. Also, I am forever grateful & thankful for all of you!! Special shout out to my fans, but I’m not going anywhere!” she said thanking her fans for their support. “Special shout out to all of you!! I see you! Thank you for all the amazing comments, DMs, messages and kind words! Forever grateful & thankful for all of you! I love you guys!”
This was the first time that the gang has got back together since Deena tied the knot with Christopher Buckner in October 2017. Sammi’s exit has been speculated to be because of her messy relationship with Ronnie Ortiz, a fellow castmate on the reality show. They dated for 8 years during which they split up many times. The original seasons of ‘Jersey Shore’ from the 2009 to 2012 time period show a lot of fights, tears, and drama between the two. What’s more, he even cheated on her along the timeline of their relationship after she had told him that she wanted to marry him in the next six months. It was the last thread holding the already strained relationship together and after the incident, it snapped.
Sammi looked very happy in the recent shots. Dressed in all black with her signature poker straight hairstyle, Sammi looked like her life was going great. The reality star has been keeping busy on social media promoting health and fitness and is seen posting shots of her blissful life with Christian Biscardi. The two are super in love and Sammi has also called him her “strength” in her Instagram posts. The cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ has definitely become more matured when it comes to love and relationship, with some of them getting hitched and becoming parents but if you tune into ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’ you’ll see that the partying is still just as crazy!
