It’s been a peaceful Jersey Shore hiatus over the past few months, but next week marks the return of the oddly-lovable guidos and gorillas to their summer home in Seaside Heights (thank goodness they’re not going back to Italy!). Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola is giving away a few Season 5 teasers and opinions of her crazy cast mates…amidst talk of drugs, dating and tanning!
Sammi sat down with xoJane at her beachfront apartment and shared on who she loves and loathes in the house.
“Deena’s actually my best friend on the show and outside of the show, we hang out all the time, we talk all the time,” she said. “She’s loud, crazy and extremely positive and fun and I’m more calm and collected so we kinda balance each other out.”
Who does Sammi get along with the least? “Probably Mike because I just don’t get along with him at all; he’s crazy,” she said. “Mike’s the troublemaker in the house and I think he loves it. He loves to stir up the drama, that’s just who he is. He’s a part of my family, he’ll always be a part of my family…but he’s like that brother that you just never really wanted.”
Like all the others, the fourth season of Jersey Shore captured the on-again-off-again relationship between Sammi and Ronnie. “In Italy the relationship was really, really good and we went right from Italy to Seaside, and in Seaside we had another amazing time in our relationship. So you’re not gonna see too much drama with the relationship because there barely was any.” Yet Sammi also states that she is currently single.
When asked about the upcoming fifth season, Sammi summarized, “The whole Mike and Nicole drama thing is definitely gonna happen again, and then the whole Nicole and Jionni thing, but that’s really it. In Seaside we really got along — you see less drama with me. Of course, there’s gonna be hookups, partying…the whole nine yards.”
Sammi can’t elaborate on the feud between Snooki and the Situation, but she does share an idea: “I have no idea what even goes on with the Nicole and Mike drama. For some reason, I don’t know, I feel like something did happen between them…I don’t know what really went on with them but they used to be best friends and when we go back to Seaside it’s just madness.”
Though the cast seems to be constantly under the influence, Sammi swears, “No drugs. I’ve never touched a drug in my life and I’ve never seen one of the other cast members do it…I’ve never seen anybody — this is being truthful — I’ve never seen anyone touch a drug.”
And how important is tanning to Sammi? “I tan…actually I’m looking a little pale right now, but normally when I do things like photo-shoots or events I do a spray tan. Of course, I love to be tan.”
The fifth (and rumored to be the final) season Jersey Shore premieres January 5th at 10PM on MTV. Read the full interview at xoJane!
