Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola

What was your life like before auditioning for Jersey Shore?

My life was as normal as could be before Jersey Shore.  I was going to college at William Paterson University, playing on their soccer team, and working at an eye doctor’s office.  I was always a beach girl and being down at the shore was a part of my everyday life.  The bay is a couple blocks away from my house, so I was a typical Jersey girl.

Why did you apply?  

The show was about the Jersey shore, which is my home, so it was like second nature for me.

How has your family reacted to your up and down relationship with Ronnie?

My family is extremely supportive of me and my relationship with Ron.  There is a lot of stuff that the audience does not get to see, and it is a television show so it is way more dramatic than what usually goes on.  You only see 45 minutes of only 12 episodes where we are filmed 24/7, for sometimes over a month.

What is your current relationship status with Ronnie?

Ronnie and I are taking the next step and living together.

Tell me about your clothing and beauty line.  

My fitness clothing line is amazing if you want to feel great while working out or even just relaxing in your everyday life.  The material is made out of supplex which means it doesn’t show sweat stains, is extremely comfortable, and does not shrink when washed!  These clothes are also designed to make the booty look good!

I also have a clutchlet purse line that is perfect when going to the club, shopping or wearing for everyday use.  The clutch is designed in 3 ways so you can wear it around your waist, around your wrist, or around your shoulder like a purse.  The designs are very stylish and fun as well!  The clutch is multi-functional.

We also cannot forget about my two women’s fragrances: Dangerous and Dangerous Desires.  And I also came out with a men’s cologne as well called Dangerous for Men.

Do you keep in touch with the other Jersey Shore cast members?

Yes, I talk to the girls all the time and try to keep in touch with everyone as much as I can.

What are your plans for the future?

To keep doing what I love, work on branding with my products, get into modeling and hosting and see what else is out there for me.  I love fashion so hopefully I’ll be doing more in that field as well.

What were your reservations when beginning on the reality TV track if any?

I had no reservations.  I was just myself and went with the flow.
