MTV announced earlier this week that the original Jersey Shore cast will be reuniting!

"Jersey Shore Family Vacation" will reunite Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio, Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, Vinny Guadagnino, Deena Nicole Cortese and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino for another undoubtedly raucous season.

However, you'll notice one familiar name isn't on the list.. Sammi Sweetheart will be the only core cast member not returning to the Jersey Shore reunion special. 

Reportedly, a source told Us Weekly, "Everyone was invited to come on the show but Sammi was the only one who didn’t want to. A big reason for that was because she didn’t want to be around Ronnie. She has been enjoying her life off of TV and didn’t want to change that.”

The pair had an arguably volatile relationship during their time on Jersey Shore which ran from 2009 to 2012.

'It's something she chose to do and it's her choice.,' Ronnie then told TooFab, in response to the absence.

'So you know, as someone who was around her forever, you gotta respect that. We all respect that and we just wish her the best. If she's happy and she's in an amazing place, God bless her, and we all really do just wish her the best and nothing but good things for her.'

'I've gone my own direction and all I can really do is worry about myself and all she can do is worry about herself.'  

Fair enough. Like, do you remember their fights?!
