Jersey Shore: Why Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi Wishes She Wasn't Famous

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is now wishing that she never became famous from . Nicole has been a part of the franchise since the original series first aired on MTV in 2009. At the time, Snooki was only 22 years old. When she returned to MTV for the Jersey Shore: Family Vacation spin-off, Nicole not only was no longer in her 20s but she was also now married with kids.

Needless to say, Snooki is now a completely different person than she once was . Aside from Jersey Shore, Nicole is an impressive businesswoman. She owns two boutique locations, has an online Etsy shop, a podcast, and has been a part of numerous different shows. Even though her life is much different now, Nicole still has her wild "meatball" side that comes out every once in a while.


In a recent interview on Paris Hilton's podcast , Nicole Polizzi admitted she would not mind if all of the fame went away. She said, "Now that I’ve seen the fame and all of it, I would love to be just like a silent." Instead of the fame that has come along with the show, Nicole would prefer to be a "silent business operator that makes millions of dollars." Even though Nicole is very grateful for everything the show has given her, she would love to be able to go out with her family without being recognized. Nicole's husband, Jionni LaValle, .

Luckily for Nicole, she does manage . Snooki and her family reside in Florham Park, New Jersey, which is a "quiet town" according to Nicole. Thanks to this, Nicole is able to run errands at local stores without having cameras in her face. Overall, she explained that her life is nothing like that of the Kardashian-Jenner sisters. Despite all of this, Nicole wishes that she could take her three kids out without being recognized. For example, when they head to the beach Nicole is often recognized by fans and asked to take pictures. She said, "I really want to go to the beach and do all these things with my kids but it’s like really hard because you know, people see us and they feel like they’re best friends with us because they watch the show so much."

Even though Nicole truly loves her fans from Jersey Shore, she also loves her quality family time. If Nicole had the choice to still be successful without fame, she would ditch fame in a heartbeat. Despite the fact that her day-to-day life is essentially "normal," there are certain things that come along with fame that Nicole does not enjoy.


Jersey Shore: Family Vacation airs Thursdays at 8pm EST on MTV.
