Yesterday evening, Snooki finally responded to the reports about her husband, Jionni LaValle, and his Ashley Madison account. The reports of Jionni’s AM account started circulating late Monday, and by Tuesday afternoon, it was one of the top stories on most gossip sites. What made it worse, perhaps, was that Snooki has a podcast and she had JUST criticized Anna Duggar for staying with Josh Duggar. Anyway, Snooki posted the above image (from her wedding) on her Instagram and left this message (I made some minor edits to the text to make it more readable):
This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband “allegedly” signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn’t be any further from the truth.
But now seeing how it’s the “news of the day” and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that’s why I married him. He’s a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world.
The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like “Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison” is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about… HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn’t even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what’s up.
So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website. @jlavalle5 💕 #myfamilyrocks
I went back to some of the original reporting on this and the reason media outlets were going with “Snooki’s husband was on Ashley Madison” is because there was an account with Jionni’s email. Granted, it could have been a prank or something like that. Who knows? But it does feel like Snooki might need to talk to her husband a little bit.
