Back in 2018, the reality star cited her romance with Biscardi as one of the reasons for skipping the show, saying on her Instagram at the time, "I have chosen not to join the show this season because I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my businesses and my relationship." "I am not the same as I was when I was 22. At 31, I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially toxic situations," said Giancola. "However, it was a difficult decision as I love my roomies. I've decided to focus on me, my future and what truly makes me happy," she added. "I will forever be grateful to Jersey Shore and everything it has brought to me! I've just decided to live my life for me these days."
