What would the Jersey Shore cast be without Sammi Sweetheart? The "sweetest b---h you'll ever meet" gave fans some of the most meme-able quotes ("RAHN, STAHP") and her on-again, off-again romance with co-star Ronnie Ortiz-Magro will go down as one of the most dramatic relationships in reality TV history, so that's why fans are extremely upset that Samantha "Sammi Sweetheart" Giancola won't be returning to MTV's upcoming reunion season Jersey Shore Family Vacation. While Sammi has yet to explain her decision, her bestie Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi dished about why she thinks Sam won't return to film with her Jersey Shore roomies.
"Everyone's asking why Sammi's not doing it. You have to ask her that — I'm not gonna speak for her," Nicole said during a recent episode of her podcast, It's Happening with Snooki & Joey. "But Sammi is just in such a happy place that I feel like she doesn't want to jump back into that drama if it does happen."
Ron and Sam dated off and on throughout the three years that the show was on air and their many breakups and makeups were documented on all six seasons of Jersey Shore. The couple ended up moving in together after the series ended in 2012 and they were together for a total of five years before they called it quits for good. Nicole suggested that since Sam is currently in a happy relationship, she doesn't want to go back and possibly relive all of the drama with her ex — but Nicole and the rest of the cast is hoping that Sammi will have a change of heart.
"At the same time we’re like, ‘It’s gonna be different,’ like we’re all begging her to come back on the show so it’s really up to her," Nicole said. "Everyone pray that Sammi comes back because I feel like she might change her mind."
