Pauly D is a changed man!
As the former Jersey Shore star gets serious with girlfriend and Famously Single co-star Aubrey O'Day, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is offering her blessing in typical Snooki fashion.
"I met Aubrey a while ago, like in Jersey Shore days, and she was always very sweet. So, Aubrey dating Pauly I think is amazing," Nicole tells ETonline. "They're gorgeous together, so I'm happy for them. Finally, Pauly's settling down! That's weird."
Since the polarizing MTV reality show went off the air over three years ago, Nicole was one of the first castmates to leave her partying lifestyle behind. The Marlboro, New York, native actually welcomed her first child, a son with then-fiance Jionni LaValle, in August 2012, just months before Jersey Shore aired its final episode. Nicole welcomed a daughter in September 2014 and tied the knot with LaValle two months later.
"Filming is definitely stressful on our relationship, just because we're homebodies. We like to be home and be in our jammies all day," Nicole reveals. The couple is currently promoting their new series, Nicole & Jionni's Shore Flip, which debuts Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET/PT on FYI.
Shore Flip follows Nicole and Jionni, a former construction worker, as they embark on a new business of flipping homes on the New Jersey Shore.
"I mean, we're not really qualified to flip a house," Nicole admits. "We're just like everybody who wants to try it out, because it's huge right now. Everybody's investing in flipping houses and making money, so we just wanted to jump on the bandwagon and try -- and we did a really, really good job for our first flip!
"It's just a hobby of ours. I love designing and furnishing a house, because I did it to my own house," she adds. "And Jionni has a lot of background in construction, so it kinda just made sense."
While Nicole admits that her husband looked "really sexy" in a hard hat -- they didn't bring any of those fantasies home to the bedroom.
"Me and Jionni don't really have sex, 'cause we have two kids," she says. "But, no, it didn't spice up anything because, if anything, we were more tired because we were flipping a house. I just had those fantasies."
Hmm... sounds like Nicole's plan to "trick" Jionni into getting her pregnant again might not be going so well. Watch the interview below for more on why Nicole jokes that her hubby "thinks I'm psycho."
