Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and her man are just fine, thank you very much.
The reality couple was recently the subject of split rumors among fans who discovered that Jionni LaValle would not be appearing on MTV's upcoming Jersey Shore Family Vacation. According to LaValle, however, his absence from the show has nothing to do with his marriage to Snooki, and everything to do with his desire to keep his private life private.
"My wife is filming a scene packing up and leaving for her new show and I AM CHOOSING TO NOT be on TV because I simply DO NOT like it," Jionni explained in an Instagram post on Tuesday. "Nicole and I are doing great and became even stronger together while raising our beautiful kids. HOWEVER you will not see me on her reality show. Being a reality star was never something I wanted to be when I grew up. I own my own business and work hard at it, that's what I do."
"MY wife is a reality star and works hard at that, that's what she does. We ARE not divorced," he continued. "For the HATERS I hope this message find you and confuses you even more about life and for the FANS of my wife and her show…I got your back!!! God Bless Yas!"
Snooki later commented on the post, writing, "I love you beyond words & so lucky to have you. As long as we know what we have, screw everybody else. You're my world!"
The couple married in November 2014 and share two kids: 5-year-old Loreanzo, and 3-year-old Giovanna.
