Jersey Shore star Jionni LaValle is the latest married reality star to be exposed as a possible AshleyMadison.com user. Jionni, who has been with Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi for years, is reportedly linked to an email address that was used to start an account on the affair website.
If true, Jionni joins Real Housewives of New York star Josh Taekman and self-proclaimed “biggest hypocrite ever” Josh Duggar on the list of married reality stars exposed for trying to have affairs.
Nicole and Jionni have been uncharacteristicly silent about the affair accusations since news broke yesterday. Normally, Nicole directly addresses any scandal that involves her or her family on her social media accounts. While she has posted about products and other things, she has yet to even mention the accusations against her husband. Even Nicole’s best friend and Snooki & JWoWW co-star, Jenni Farley, has remained quiet. (She is usually very quick to defend Nicole on social media.)
Jionni and Nicole met while Nicole was filming ‘Jersey Shore.’ They have two children together.

UPDATE: Nicole has finally addressed this rumor. She just posted this statement to her website and Instagram pages:
This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband “allegedly” signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn’t be any further from the truth. But now seeing how it’s the “news of the day” and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that’s why I married him. He’s a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world. The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like “Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison” is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about… HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn’t even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what’s up. So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website.
Jionni has yet to address the scandal himself.
The Ashley is expecting Us Weekly to respond to Snooki’s statement. The magazine will likely be producing proof of Jionni’s account, or a big fat apology! Stay tuned!
