The new season of Jersey Shore Family Vacation is back, and for Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, it means that her husband Jionni LaValle will once again stay away from the cameras. While other cast members' significant others feature on the MTV reality show, LaValle has chosen to be mostly absent from the reboot. In an interview with TooFab, Nicole shared that she has tried to persuade him to change his mind, but ultimately respects his decision.

The cast will also be celebrated by Atlantic City, which announced an official Jersey Shore Day in their honor. Although Nicole acknowledges that the show often receives backlash, she is grateful for the recognition and feels that it highlights that they are good people. Although they may not receive an Emmy for their reality TV efforts, Nicole believes that they are winners in their hearts and minds.
