Nicole “Snooki” LaValle is now selling her Jersey Shore home after announcing earlier in the year she has quit the MTV reality show, The Sun can exclusively reveal.
The pint-sized mom of three and husband Jionni LaValle listed their five-bed, three-bathroom $725,000 waterfront home in the famous vacation location in October – and its sale is now said to be “pending.”

Speaking on her It’s Happening with Snooki and Joey podcast, she said she was quitting the reality show after 11 years to spend more time with her children; Lorenzo, eight, Giovanna, six, and Angelo, one.
The couple still own a $2.6 million home in Florham Park, New Jersey.
Talking about leaving MTV’s Jersey Shore, Snooki said: “I just can’t do it anymore. Like, literally, leaving my kids to film it is really, really hard on me.”
She added: “I don’t like partying, like, three days in a row. It’s just not my life anymore. And I want to be home with the kids.”

The Coldwell Banker Realty website now says the sale of the house is “pending.”
When contacted by The Sun, the realtors handling the sale had no comment.
Property website Zillow reveals the 3,556 sq ft property had a $24k price drop in October to try to find a buyer.
It says the house has “fabulous water views from all windows, one minute to the bay by boat.”
The property also featured in the 2016 series Nicole & Jionni’s Shore Flip.

In the show, fans saw the couple buy the 2005 house for $370k then spent $200k renovating it to turn it into a family friendly, open-plan vacation home complete with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, a bar, boat deck, jacuzzi and family play room.
They first tried to sell the home in 2016 for $659k but removed it from sale after it failed to find a buyer despite two $10k price drops.
Snooki told how she had decided to leave the Jersey Shore franchise in the season three finale of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation screened earlier this year.

In the series finale, Snooki and fellow bridesmaids Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Deena Cortese made a speech jokingly referring to Angelina as “you’re the trash to our bags,” the “lice to our hair” and “dump to our island.”
But the jokes didn’t go over well with Angelina’s family who booed the girls’ speech.
Angelina also said she was offended in later interviews.
