It’s been nearly seven years since MTV first aired the reality series, but two of the show’s stars – Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley – are up for a trip back to the shore.
During a visit to the PEOPLE offices, Snooki, 28, and JWoww, 30, recalled their recent trip back to the infamous house where they filmed the show.
“I brought so many cans of Lysol,” JWoww said of entering the home. Snooki added: “I washed my kids like five times when they got home because you just know how dirty that house used to be.”
Though the women have regrets from their time on the series, they are grateful for the place in life that the reality show led them to.
“We were so dirty in that house,” JWoww told PEOPLE. “But I think it was a great experience.”
“I think it was cute to show them where we met their daddies and our husbands, so I think it was a cool experience,” Snooki said of bringing her children to the old pad.
Though the reality stars’ children are too young to watch the MTV show, both women have thought over when the best time will be to show and discuss the series with them.
“I don’t care anymore. I mean, it’s going to happen. It’s inevitable,” Snooki admitted of her children seeing the show. “So when they watch it, I’ll just be like don’t do what mommy did. This is an example of what not to do,” she added, and remarked that ages 10 or 11 is when she’ll let them tune in.
“I don’t know what age is going to be the appropriate age because younger and younger people are learning about Santa, people are learning about their parents’ behavior,” JWoww said of when she will let her children watch Jersey Shore.
With another reality series under their belts – they currently star on go90’s Snooki & JWoww: Moms with Attitude and previously starred on four seasons of MTV’s Snooki & JWoww – the women are ready to revisit their old stomping grounds on the real Jersey Shore.
“I’m hoping,” Snooki said of a reunion series. “I mean, because they always talk about it, so I’m hoping because that would be awesome.”
“My ideal situation for this would be to go back to the shore for a week – not even the shore, somewhere else for one week, because we’re used to filming that for like a month straight,” Snooki told PEOPLE. “Because now that we have kids, you can’t do that. I would do like a month with everybody in the house, just us and seeing if we matured.”
JWoww quickly corrected her: “We didn’t. There’s no way.”
Though kids won’t be included in the reunion, alcohol definitely will be, according to Snooki: “We probably would rip shots.”
