Nicole Polizzi, otherwise known as Snooki, is aware that a day will come in which her three children want to see her antics on "Jersey Shore," and it "terrifies" her.
The "Messyness" host is especially worried about her daughter's take.
"I'm really nervous about Giovanna seeing me do back handsprings in a dress and, like, my whole crotch is out. She'll be like, 'Mom, where's your underwear?' So that terrifies me," Snooki told Page Six. "Getting arrested on the beach, and she'll be like, 'Mom, why are you getting arrested?' So, stuff like that."
The reality TV star shares three children — Lorenzo, 9, Giovanna, 6, and Angelo, 2 — with husband Jionni LaValle, and she's hoping to use her wild history on the show as a teachable moment.
"I also feel like it could be a lesson to be like, 'Kids, be way better than me because Mommy is a s–t show,'" Snooki said. "So, I feel like I can use it to my advantage."
Like most of her fellow castmates, Snooki became a mainstream name after appearing on the MTV show from 2009 to 2012. She also appeared in "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation" from 2018 to 2020. She eventually left the show to spend more time with her family.
"It was really hard," she told "The Mel Robbins Show" of the decision to leave the show that made her famous, "but I had to think about my happiness and where I really wanted myself to be, and it's being a mom and being [with my] kids and not drama and drinking … and drama."
