Angelina Pivarnick Wants Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola to Replace Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi on ‘Jersey Shore: Family Vacation’

“Come on, ya know ya wanna fight, scream and cry on camera like the good old days!”

With the recent announcement that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is officially leaving Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, her least favorite roommate Angelina Pivarnick has a suggestion for her potential replacement. 

Angelina is apparently in favor of giving viewers a blast from the past in the form of Jersey Shore original cast mate Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola — aka the (self-proclaimed) “sweetest bitch you’ll ever meet.” 

Chill Ron, you have other things you need to be focusing on at the moment…

“I said this in the beginning — like, years ago — that [Sammi] should return, but she’s living her best life,” Angelina told Us Weekly at an event last week in New York City. “She’s getting married soon — good for her. She looks so amazing.” 

Sammi announced in March that she was engaged to her longtime boyfriend Christian Biscardi after more than two years of dating. Prior to her seemingly happy relationship with Christian, Sammi was known best for her tumultuous on-again, off-again relationship with former ‘Jersey Shore’ co-star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. (Who, as we all know, has continued to partake in turbulent relationships post-Sammi Sweetheart.) 

Despite Angelina’s campaign for a Sammi comeback, the likeliness of it actually happening is pretty slim. As The Ashley told you in November 2017, Sammi wasn’t on board with the ‘Jersey Shore’ spin-off from the very beginning. While most assumed her decision was due to her not wanting to film with Ron, Sammi revealed the real reason in April 2018. 

“I have chosen not to join the show this season because I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my business and relationship,” she stated on Instagram. “I am not the same person 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.” 

When your ex-girlfriend is talking about you…

She went on express her gratitude to her fans and everything the show bought her, adding, “I’ve just decided to live my life for me these days.” 

If Sammi isn’t up for returning to the show and taking the empty spot in the cast left by Snooki, Angelina feels no new cast members should be brought in.

“It’s only us,” she told Us Weekly. “We’re the only people that can deal with it.”

Aside from keeping an eye out for a potential Sammi return, Angelina is also keeping an eye out for an invitation to Sammi and Christian’s wedding. 

“I’ll go ahead and DM you my address, just in case!”

“I don’t know who [Sammi]’s inviting to the wedding,” Angelina said. “I don’t know if it’s right now. I don’t know if it’s this year. I think it’s next year, so I don’t know.” 

Four I-don’t-know’s in one sentence… sounds pretty promising to us!

  1. She clearly doesn’t have Sammis best interest at heart if she’s trying to get her live in a house with Ronnie, who not only is insane himself, but he also has a psycho for a baby mama that would I truly believe would have no problem murdering Sammi or Ronnie in their sleep. Sam needs to keep doing what she’s doing, and stay far FAR away from that show. I do wonder if she’s inviting the rest of the cast to her wedding though…

  2. Sammi would never join that shitshow. She and Rawn were alwaysntoxic but now a lot of the cast has also become toxic, especially the girls, who never seemed to like her to begin with. Maybe Angelina is just hoping she’ll come back so the mean girls have a new target that isn’t her.

  3. I’m sure they will try to invite Sammi (for the Rammi drama, not to mention Jenni was never her favorite…) but she will say NO. Sam is in preparation for her wedding, why would she want that like at all?! She doesn’t need the money anymore so why would she go through all that, YOU KNOW first question the production would give her would be: “So, you and Ron, how will you deal with that?”

  4. [* Shield plugin marked this comment as “Trash”. Reason: Failed Bot Test (expired) *]
    To be fair, the show didn’t need to come back at all. The girls have kids, except for Angelina, and even one of the boys had a daughter. I think at that age in their life, they should be focused on raising kids and being grown adults… not acting like 21 year old party people.

  5. Angelina should be replaced by Snooki. Angelina is the most annoying on the show and should have never been invited back

    1. I’m not sure who is downvoting you, but I COMPLETELY agree. Having Angelina on the show sucks, she should have never been invited back.

      1. Couldn’t agree more and I’ve been saying the dirty hamster is an idiot. Why in the world would Sammi want to be anywhere around crazy toxic Ron? Maybe if they got rid of Ronnie I could see it happening but all of the dudes on the show are problematic. It takes trashy women to have to deal with them and I like jenni but she could get real trashy lol

      2. She wasn’t invited back, was she? Wasn’t she a prank and it never ended. I’m sure Paulie is kicking himself now, pranks on him!
