It looks like it's the end of an era. After countless seasons, Snooki is leaving Jersey Shore. And honestly, we don't blame her one bit -- especially with all of the drama, unsafe situations at times, and her mention of receiving death threats that's definitely not what one signs up for with a reality show -- no matter how juicy it can get.

  • Snooki revealed the news during a recent episode of her podcast, 'It's Happening With Snooki and Joey.'

    Jersey Shore first premiered in 2009, running for a number of seasons before ending in 2012. Although there have been spin-offs since then, the cast returned in 2017 with Jersey Shore: Family Vacation that's definitely had it's OMG moments.

  • "There's reasons why I came to this decision... It's definitely a hard decision," she confessed.

    "I love you so much and don't hate me for my decision, but I have to do what's best for me at the moment. And I am retiring from Jersey Shore. I am not coming back to Jersey Shore for season four if there is one," Snooki continued.

  • Ultimately, Snooki is putting her family first, as filming the show has become too much.

    "I just can’t do it anymore. Like, literally, leaving my kids to film it is really, really hard on me... I try and quit every single day. The poor producers are like, 'Dude, are you going to quit this time?'" the celeb mom continues about sons Lorenzo, 7, and Angelo, 6 months, and daughter Giovanna, 5.

    "I quit every single time we film because I just hate being away from the kids. 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. I don't mind a here or there going to a dinner or whatever, but it’s just really hard for me to leave the kids and film the show. That's one reason."

  • She's also over the drama and division among the group that continues to spread.
