Sammi Sweetheart Opens Up About Why She Isn't A Part Of "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation"

Jersey Shore, no more?

Posted on

If you haven't already heard, the Jersey Shore crew is getting back together and this time they're headed to Miami for MTV's new spinoff, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Did the network forget to ask Sammi to join? Nope. Sammi actually turned down the offer. And earlier today, she took to Instagram to explain why she made the decision to back away from the franchise.

But this is no shade to her roommates, who Sammi said she loves. At this point in her life, she's looking to focus on herself, her future, and what truly makes her happy.

"I will be forever grateful to Jersey Shore and everything it has brought to me! I've just decided to live my life for me these days."


And although she won't be on the show, fans can still tune in to catch Snooki, JWoww, Pauly D, The Situation, Vinny, Ronnie, and Deena on Jersey Shore: Family Vacation when it premieres on April 5 at 8 p.m. ET on MTV.
