'Jersey Shore' star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi says filming show gave her anxiety as parenting took a toll on her
Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi is all set to bid her goodbye to the show after upcoming season and in her latest interview she explained the reason behind it
'Jersey Shore Family Vacation' is all set to come out with another season, but this would be the last one where viewers will get to see Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi. Recently, Nicole revealed that she will be bidding goodbye to the show after Season 4 comes to an end.
Fans were surprised as they did not expect the reality star to make her retirement announcement. Luckily for us, we finally have answers as to why the reality star made this decision. While appearing on Today Show, Nicole hinted that filming for the show was becoming a lot for her.
"Especially with Angelo -- I had my third baby -- it's just a lot for me," she said during the interview. Nicole hinted that she wanted to be a hands-on mother and with no help by her side, filming and parenting sometimes took a toll on her. "I don't have a lot of help [with the kids] when we're filming and it gives me a lot of anxiety," she said. "I just have to do what's best for me at the moment."
Nicole admitted that she wanted to be more present in her children's life but the filming was not letting that happen. When asked how would she describe herself as a mom she said, "Frickin' awesome!" She also appreciated how her co-stars handled motherhood and admitted that everyone was doing a good job.
"They're amazing mothers," she said, speaking about Jenni Farley and Deena Cortese. "Jenni's the strongest mom I know and Deena's the most loving mother I've ever seen." Nicole had announced her retirement on her podcast as she said, "I am retiring from 'Jersey Shore,'” she said. "I am not coming back for 'Jersey Shore' Season 4 if there is one... The main reason is really… I just can’t do it anymore. Literally, leaving my kids to film it is really hard on me. I try and quit every single day,"
She added, "I just hate being away from the kids. I don’t like partying like three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore. I want to be home with the kids. I don't mind... here and there, going to a dinner or whatever. It's just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show."
