Sammi Sweetheart is formally again!
As we reported final week, Sammi Giancola has joined the forged of Jersey Shore Household Trip after initially declining to participate within the spinoff mission.
Producers confirmed the rumors of Giancola’s return to the Shore-verse with a photograph of the Jersey native filming in entrance of a inexperienced display.
The pic led to hypothesis that Sammi had solely filmed a confessional-style interview for the present and wouldn’t be interacting with the remainder of the forged.
Now, that rumor has been put to relaxation, as Sammi has been noticed hanging out together with her co-stars on digital camera.
The Ashley’s Actuality Roundup has obtained photographs that present Sammi filming at a ski resort in Pennsylvania.
It’s nonetheless unclear if Sammi will star in a whole season of Shore, or if she’s solely popping up for a couple of episodes.
However manufacturing sources have confirmed that she’ll make her first look later this season.
In line with TMZ, Sammi’s return got here as a complete shock to her castmates, who have been visibly shocked when she confirmed up on set.
For years, Giancola was adamant in her refusal to return to the franchise that made her well-known.
Her change of coronary heart is probably going a results of the truth that her allegedly abusive ex-boyfriend Ronnie Ortiz Magro has been “fired” from Shore.
(Following quite a few authorized troubles and abuse allegations, Ronnie solely appeared briefly within the present’s fifth season, and has not but appeared on season six, which is at present airing.)
When she introduced in 2018 that she wouldn’t participate in JSFV, Sammi made it clear that she wished to avoid “toxic situations” involving her ex.
However with Ronnie gone, the trail is obvious for a full-time Sammi return, and it appears the remainder of the forged couldn’t be happier about it.
“Sammi was very much part of the cast and everyone was treating her like no time had passed,” one manufacturing supply instructed The Ashley.
“It’s a huge deal that she is there, for the rest of the cast especially.”
Sammi’s castmates have been open about their want for her to return to the present, but it surely appears their pleas initially fell on deaf ears.
“She blocked me!” Nicole mentioned in an interview in 2022.
“I don’t know what I did! It’s unfortunate, because we would love for her to come back [and appear on ‘Jersey Shore Family Vacation.’] She’s a part of the show. I feel like it’s not whole or full unless all of us are there.”
“We tried to get her back like two years ago, all of us texting her saying, ‘Come for one dinner. Why not?’” Nicole mentioned. “And she’s just always like, ‘No, I’ll never do that show again.’ We didn’t want to push it.”
Maybe all that strain lastly wore Sammi down, or perhaps she simply determined it’s lastly time to renew cashing in on the empire she helped construct.
Regardless of the case, it’s nice to have her again!
