Vinny Wonders Why Snooki Retired Her Pouf

If you're wondering where Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's famous pouf went, you're not the only one.

On Thursday's all-new episode of Jersey Shore, Snooki's costar, Vinny Guadagnino, laments the loss of his pal's 'do.

"We saw you all the time [with it] last summer," Vinny says. "What happened?!" (Watch an exclusive preview clip above)

And now that she's shed her pouf, there's another aspect of her Jersey Shore persona the reality star is looking to ditch: her famous nickname.

"I miss my real name," the New York-native, who is credited as Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi on her novel, A Shore Thing, has said. "I miss people calling me Nicole."

Check out the clip above for more of Snooki and Vinny's antics and catch the full episode of Jersey Shore Thursday at 10 p.m. (EST) on MTV.
