I know she’s going by Nicole Polizzi now, but Snookie is so much fun to say. Nicole, 26, has come along way from her Jersey Shore days. It’s refreshing to see a young star turn her life around for the better.
In her new book Baby Bumps she talks about her life as a Mom. Nicole reveals that one night of binge drinking a month after giving birth almost sent her to rehab! Her fiancé Jionni Lavalle wasn’t having it!! He threatened to take her son away and send her to rehab!
“About a month after Lorenzo was born, I went on a girls’ night out …In the limo to the club, we popped open a bottle of Champagne and had more vodka … I was drunk before we hit the highway. After champagne we switched to sake bombs … Four different kinds of alcohol were pushed through my pregnancy-scrubbed liver. I got twisted. After being a saint for ten months, I had no idea what my tolerance level was anymore. I blacked out, and only found out what happened the next day. Apparently, I managed to pack a lot of trouble into just a few hours, giving all the girls a lap dance, making out with, er, everyone … I knew it had been filmed and that Jionni would find out the truth. I had to tell him what happened, but I didn’t have the mental focus or strong stomach to say it to his face.”
That’s when she decided to text him and come clean.
“[After receiving the text] he scooped up Lorenzo and said, ‘Stay away from me.’ [He texted me] you’re a coward and a horrible mother and fiancée. [Told me] pack your bags and get out. Jionni had also mentioned something about rehab,” she wrote. “Hysterical, I took a drive around the block and called Jenni [JWoww]. She was on my side, of course … Jenni said, ‘Jionni chose to be with you; he chose to get you pregnant; he chose to propose to you. He has to choose to be with the real you. You don’t need rehab. You just need a break.”
Who knew that went down! It’s hard making that transition from party girl to mom. I know because I did it!
