It’s pretty obvious that, during her tenure on Jersey Shore, Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi was not exactly a healthy specimen. Although she’s since cleaned up her act, cutting all of the bad habits out of her life, Snooki insists that she was never as dependent on alcohol as the haters like to claim.
Snooki made a name for herself by partying hard on Jersey Shore. Given her once crazy behavior, it’s no shocker that much of the public attributed her wild ways to alcohol addiction. But the reality star vehemently denies these claims, explaining that, while she certainly spent more time partying than she’d care to admit, she was never a full blown alcoholic.
During yesterday’s appearance on The View, Snooki admitted that her penchant for clubbing almost destroyed her relationship with Jionni LaValle. “He was pissed. He wanted to break up with me. I was a party girl, I went crazy.” But after she gave birth to Lorenzo, Snooki quickly realized that she needed to make a change for the sake of her growing family.
Barbara Walters proceeded to ask Snooki whether she’d decided to quit drinking cold turkey. The reality star responded by clarifying her former relationship with booze, “I mean, I never was an alcoholic. I wasn’t really addicted to cigarettes, it wasn’t a problem, so I kind of dropped it like that.”
