Let’s face it: We’ve all done things that we’re not proud of. But as a parent, it’s not easy to explain those things to our children. Sometimes, it just seems easier to keep quiet and let the kids think we were always saints.
But it’s not that easy when you’re a reality-TV star who became famous for her late nights and drunken antics. Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi knows this all too well; however, now that she’s cleaned up her act, she says she has no problem talking about her past to her son, Lorenzo.
Calling her party-girl days “no big deal,” Snooki tells People, “I was 21-years-old and I did what everyone else did, but it was just on camera. [I'll tell Lorenzo], ‘Learn from my mistakes and once you go through them, you’ll know how to deal with them.”
She adds that she plans to have that sit-down with her son when he’s in his early teens.
For now, Snooki is just enjoying being a new mother to the baby who helped her turn away from the wild life.
She reports that little Lorenzo, almost at the 4-month mark, is cooing and starting to hold his head up. “I just can’t wait until he crawls,” she says.
Right now, Snooki is in L.A. doing press for the final season of Jersey Shore, but she’ll soon be home where her heart is — with her son and her fiance, Jionni LaValle. The happy trio will be celebrating their first Christmas as a family next week … somehow.
Snooki admits that they don’t have any set plans yet for the big day. “I would love to have traditions, because we don’t have any yet,” she says. So she’s turning to Google for inspiration.
Elf on the Shelf, anyone?
