Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is enjoying every minute of being a mother to Lorenzo and Giovanna. Not only does she cherish her time with them, but she also loves to involve them in her work, showing that her kids really are her “world.”
We recently caught up with the former “Jersey Shore” star where she talks about her new Snooki Love line, Lovanna, which was named after her kids. She EXCLUSIVELY dished a little bit about future reality TV projects and her days on the show.
We’ve seen Polizzi grow from her partying days at the shore to becoming a mature mom and wife of Jionni LaValle, and admitted that she rather be called by her real name instead of her given TV name.
“I think now that I’m a mom, I prefer Nicole, because Snooki was like my party alter ego when I was on ‘Jersey Shore’ like way before I had my kids. So I definitely think I’ve matured from that image, but my brand is still the same, so my brand is called Snooki, but my name is Nicole,” said Polizzi.
Aside from Jenni, are you still in touch with the rest of the cast like Sammi, Ronny, Pauly, Vinny?
“Well they all came to my wedding, and you know, we all try and talk to each other, so the only people that I don’t keep in contact with is Vinny and Mike.”
Do you think you would ever go back to doing reality TV?
“I mean yeah! I’m definitely not done with reality, it’s just like what kind of show would it be? Because I don’t want my kids on TV anymore, I feel like they need to grow up as normal as possible and get things going for them. So, I mean if it were something where I was in it doing something, I definitely wanna do more, I just don’t know what yet.”
You’ve definitely moved on to bigger and better things such as your new fashion line, which is coming out, can you tell us more about that?
“So I’ve have my clothing line for about a year so far, which is sold online at Snookishop.com, but I’m trying to do different divisions of my line. It’s called Snooki Love, but I’m coming out with a new elegant and chic line called Lovanna, and that is basically Giovanna and Lorenzo’s name put together. So I think that was really cute. So Lovanna is going to be a new piece of my clothing line, which I’m really excited about. And I also have another piece called SLNP (Snooki Love Nicole Polizzi). I’m just trying to have different divisions of my clothing line, it’s going to be different styles. Everybody dresses differently, some days I dress lazy, some days I like to dress up, so I definitely switch up my style too. But I kind of want to have a world with everything in each category.”
What will the line consist of?
“Lovanna is more of your elegant and contemporary stuff and it’s a little higher in price than Snooki Love. It’s basically everything from comfortable tops, lounge wear, to cute dresses, really cute tops and stuff like that, that you can dress up or dress down. So it’s basically all comfy clothes, the same clothes that you can go out in and look good, but they’re not hugging your body where you can’t breathe.”
What are some things that influenced you to create the new line?
“Well I definitely wanted another piece of it because we do have Snooki Love and SLNP, but I wanted something more elegant, so that is Lovanna, and basically I love the name because it represents my kids and they are my world, so the fact that I can do a little higher price of the line with great quality and the pieces are beautiful and they’re gorgeous, I feel like everyone is going to love it. I just hope that I can make a line that not necessarily represents my kids, but the name is of my kids.”
How will it be different from your previous line?
“[Lovanna] is more elegant and contemporary and a little higher in price, but it’s definitely more classier pieces because I want it to be more chic and classy, classier than the Snooki Love because Snooki Love, sometimes they’re graphic tees, and you know just fun clothes and stuff, but I wanted this to be a little more like, not like, classy classy, but a little bit more dressed up.”
Do you have a personal favorite product from the line?
“I definitely love the Outerwear that we’re coming up with. So Lovanna is basically gonna be the outerwear, dresses, tops and a lot of print, so I’m loving outerwear because fall is my favorite season, so I’m obsessed and I can’t wait to show everybody what we have in store for Lovanna.”
When will it release?
“I’m not too sure about the timeline, but maybe December I think it will be in the Snooki shop? Yeah, December, I think it will be released on Snookishop.com in December, I think that’s what we said. And then the rest of the items, we’re only going to do a few, but the rest of them, which is the Spring and Summer look will be up in March.”
If you could collaborate with any designer and create a line who would it be and why?
“I’m not really into big designers because I don’t like spending a lot of money and s**t. Like I’m cheap. So I love the fact that I can have an affordable line for everybody because Lovanna, I did say was a higher price, but I mean the price range is from $49 to $99. It’s affordable. I’ve always shopped at Forever 21, Charlotte Russe and I still do to this day. So the fact that I can have kind of the same concept and same kind of taste is really really awesome. So if I had to collaborate with one designer it would probably be Jessica Simpson because she’s kind of on the same level of being affordable, not too crazy and she basically designs everything. I definitely look up to her when it comes to trying to design and fit everybody’s body type.”
Twitter Fan Q&A’s:
@Snooki_Lovers: Would you ever invite fans for a special meet up for your fan pages?
“Ya! I’m open to that, but I do have book signings coming up in Oct for my next book in November, so usually that’s a great time to meet all the fans because we get to have a little one-on-one conversation, take pictures, so that’s kind of the best way.”
“[The book signings] is mainly on the East coast, but I’ll definitely get out LA and other places. I rather do it in like a week’s span because I can’t be away from my kids for too long. So I’d have to plan that accordingly.”
“Black & gold.”
@SnookiFans: What is ur biggest/weirdest fear?
“I’m definitely scared of spiders, the dark, aliens, and ghosts and sharks and the ocean.”
Who is your celebrity crush?
“I did love Paul Walker, so when he died I did cry for a week, so he was my number one.”
Will you make a line of heels for your clothing line?
“I’m actually working on it right now. I’m thinking out some styles and how it’s going to look. I don’t know when it’s going to be available, because we’re literally just starting to design it right now, so eventually yes, but it is my goal to have lots of bags, there’s already jewelry on the site, personalized bags and shoes. I’m trying to do it all! It just takes time.”
A bunch of fans from New Zealand asked if you would ever come there?
“Ya! I mean I’m definitely down to travel. I’ve been to Spain, Ireland and Italy obviously, so I’m definitely down to travel, but I would have to make it a vacation. I’m not just gonna go there for one thing. Like I wanna go there, and travel, and sight see, so I would definitely be down.”
