Jamie Mccarthy / Getty Images 😭😭😭 In the latest episode of her podcast, "It's Happening with Snooki and Joey," Nicole said she "will not be returning to Jersey Shore: Family Reunion season four, if there is one." Jamie Mccarthy / Getty Images "There’s a lot of reasons why, but the main reason is really…I’m just like, I just can’t do it anymore." Michael Loccisano "I hate being away from the kids, I don’t like partying three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore. And I wanna be home with the kids. You know, like, I don’t mind here-and-there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard on me to leave the kids and film the show." She also implied that she doesn't enjoy the direction the show's been going, saying there's been "drama" and that she "doesn't like the person [she's] portrayed as." Dia Dipasupil / Getty Images "Jersey Shore is about family, and about making fun of each other, and having a good time, and laughing, and just knowing that it’s all in good fun. And lately, it’s just like, everything is so serious." On top of all that, she said she's received "death threats" and dealt with fans picketing her New Jersey clothing store as a result of what's transpired on the show. Jamie Mccarthy / Getty Images "I just need to do what's best for me right now, and right now I'm just not comfortable filming that show anymore."
