Emilio Masella, the Gold’s Gym trainer who began dating Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi in January, is finally speaking out about the Jersey Shore star.
Namely, how he got dumped over the phone. Voicemail even.
“I told Nicole I tried out for Real World and she was upset,” Masella told People, confirming that he had in fact tried out for another MTV show.
“She thought I was using her for the show which is ridiculous.”
An argument ensued, and at 6:30 a.m. on Sunday, he received a voicemail from his angry girlfriend saying, “You’re nothing. You’re single.”
Emilio Masella was confused and tried to call her back, but she hung up on him. What he didn’t expect were the allegations of infidelity.
“I’d never cheat on her, I love her,” he says, and he is not pleased with Snooki hooking up with her costar Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino.
“I talked to her yesterday and I was like, I’d never do something so low,’” he says. “She said she hadn’t hooked up with anybody either - but she freakin’ lied ... She put out there that I cheated, and now the tables have turned. It sucks.”
And for the record, Masella assumed she’d be supportive, not critical, of his Real World audition: “I never asked for anything. She’s the one that pulled me into the spotlight, bringing me all these places. It seems like she’s jealous.”
Masella adds that Snooki was also worried that he was hanging out with girls, although he claims 80 percent of his friends are female.
“I talked to her yesterday afternoon and I fought with her,” he says. “I [told her] she has no reason to be mad - and she hung up on me. I told her, ‘You can’t expect me to stay home and never go out if you’re gone for two months.’”
“I’m not a scumbag. She’s being jealous and spiteful. I don’t know if she [broke up with me] on purpose so she could hook up with Mike ... I knew [her time on set] was going to be crazy, but I didn’t think it was going to be this crazy.”
We just can't wait for Season 2 to air.
