Whether it was tanned bodies, bulging muscles or even the battle of the bulge, body image was one of the focal points of MTV's controversial reality TV Show, "The Jersey Shore."
The outspoken and comical cast member, Snooki, was always up for a good time, but when it came to her weight -- it was no laughing matter.
Constantly surrounded by drama, Snooki was criticized for her weight by a female onlooker during one of the show's episodes. Her roommate came to her defense and in true "Jersey Shore" fashion punched the girl in the face for making fun of her friend. A real class act.
There was a little more behind the criticism, however.
Snooki appeared on "The Wendy Williams Show" on Friday and admitted to having an eating disorder at one point in her life.
"I don't think it was as serious as people think it is to me because I recovered so quickly, but um I definitely had something going," she admitted to Williams.
Now more comfortable in her skin and with her newfound fame, she said that her eating disorder is under control right now.
Snooki really couldn't be happier with how her life has changed since being cast on "The Jersey Shore."
"It's crazy but I feel like it's second nature now. I always knew I was going to be famous one day but I just didn't know how or when. I love my life right now," she said.
Will Snooki and her signature hair-do return to the shore with the rest of the gang -- or will there be new "Guidos and Guidettes?"
"I think there will definitely be a Season 2. But I don't know if they are going to bring us back or another cast back," Snooki said. "I feel like if they cast another cast, it won't be the same because they will try to out do us and it's going to be fake."
Whether there will be new "Jersey Shore imposters" or not is yet to be determined, but in the meantime, Snooki will keep enjoying the ride.
