The sweetest bitch you'll ever meet is coming clean.
In a heartfelt note to her fans that she shared on her social media accounts Friday morning, former Jersey Shore star Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola explained why she chose not to participate in the show's highly-anticipated reboot.
Her message is an honest, beautiful, and mature one of both self-care and self-love: "I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my business and my relationship," she revealed. "I am not the same person I was when I was 22. At 31, I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially toxic situations."
"It was a difficult decision as I love my roomies," she continued. I've decided to focus on me, my future and what truly makes me happy. I will forever be grateful to Jersey Shore and everything it has brought to me! ... You never know what I could be up to next!"
Fans' responses to Sammi's announcement have been overwhelmingly positive:
While we'll miss Sammi, too, we're so happy to hear she's so happy — and so are her former housemates.
"We would've liked to complete it [the reunion] with her and have her participate in it, but at the end of the day, we support her decision," Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino explained in the cast's interview with TooFab Friday.
When asked if Sammi would be interested in participating in the second season of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi exclaimed: "We're hoping!"
Can't wait to see what the future holds for you, Sam. 💕
