Exclusive: Snooki and JWoww on What's Hot (or Not) About Motherhood
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley sat down with Parents.com for some unfiltered mom talk—but don't let the babes on their hips fool you: these girls are still as unpredictable (and hilarious!) as ever.
A lot has happened over the last few years for reality television stars Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley. The wild days of the Jersey Shore are long gone and the two BFFs have replaced hookups with hubbies and skimpy bikinis with babies—but it's only natural that the duo continue their unpredictable ride together on camera. That's why we can't wait to watch their mommy moments unfold every Friday on Snooki & JWoww: Moms With Attitude, starting this week!
Snooki and husband Jionni LaValle love that there aren't any dull moments (were there ever?!) with 3-year-old son Lorenzo and 1-year-old daughter Giovanna. Meanwhile, JWoww and her hubba Roger Mathews have their hands full with 16-month-old Meilani—and the newlyweds are expecting a baby boy in May.
The girls sat down with Parents.com to get real about mommyhood and play a fun game of "hot or not?" Join the fun...
Parents.com: What does being a mom mean to each of you? What's it like?
Snooki: Being a mom is the best thing that happened to me—it changed my life. It's literally the best thing and the most rewarding job ever. I love my kids. I love being a mom.
JWoww: Hard as f***. But it's harder to picture what my life was like before because it just feels so natural and so right. Like, going back? I would never want the life I had before. I enjoyed it, but being a parent is so rewarding every single day.
Parents.com: Do you have tips for new moms who are trying to decide on a baby name?
Snooki: Jenni is having a problem right now because she's having a boy and she can't figure out a boy's name. If she knows somebody with that name or hooked up with somebody with that name, she hates it. So good luck with that! (Looks at JWoww) Just put Roger and Jenni together.
JWoww: Roger and Jenni together? Regini? It's difficult. Everyone says, and I don't believe it, that when you look at your baby you'll know—I call bullsh*t on that. That's why you have a full nine months to get your life together. Fix your life, and figure out the name!
Parents.com: What are some bizarre mommy moments you deal with?
Snooki: My kids pee on me. I co-sleep with my kids and Lorenzo is still in diapers at night, and they both pee and I'm too lazy to the point where I just lay in it. But in the morning I clean it up—and I smell like piss. If my kid's thirsty, I'm going to give them a drink. So they drink all night and then they pee on me.
JWoww: Meilani is like that angry cat, like a total a**hole. She will take something, stare at me, and just drop it! If I run up to her, she starts hoarding sh*t and running. She's just like me—the spitting image of me.
Parents.com: So what do you have to say to judgy moms who voice their opinions about those less-than-perfect parenting moments?
Snooki: Judgy moms? Get over yourself! People are so sensitive nowadays, get over it. Like, sh*t. As long as you love them—if you do different things than I do, good for you. As long as your kid is safe, loved, and healthy you're doing a good job.
JWoww: I hate judgy moms. Even family members. When you become a mom, it's like all of a sudden you become psychotic. People are judging from if you are a breastfeeder to if you don't breastfeed, what diapers you use and if you are pro-organic or not. I'm pro-don't kill your kid! That's it! Just make it survive and you're good!
Parents.com: What's your advice for moms being judged?
JWoww: The people that judge are the ones that have the issues, I feel. They're the ones always trying to prove a point. If you honestly feel good about yourself and your parenting, then you need to get rid of those people in your life.
Parents.com: What stage of parenthood do you look forward to the most?
JWoww: I love every stage. I don't want to rush it even though I'm really excited. Like booking Disney—Roger wants to wait until she's older, but I don't want to wait for moments. I'm always living in the now. You look back and literally two weeks ago it was different and in two weeks it's going to be different.
Parents.com: What's a play-date like with Meilani, Lorenzo, and Giovanna?
Snooki: Lorenzo still thinks he's an only child because he doesn't share. But when he's at Jenni's house, I feel like he shares!
JWoww: They actually have really good fun together. I'm surprised because my daughter is an only child so I thought she was going to be an a**hole.
Parents.com: What are some good tips for new moms to stay happy, positive, and healthy?
Snooki: Show love and don't always question yourself and wonder if you're doing the right thing—because in your heart you are doing the right thing.
JWoww: Don't over-stress. Every new mom over-stresses. Am I doing it right? I was so paranoid [about] SIDS that I probably lost the first six months because I wasn't sleeping.
