Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may have reformed her hard-partying ways, but her temper is still very much intact.
The former Jersey Shore star ripped into residents of Pelican Island, a community within the beach region that put her on the map, after they took action to try and stop her from filming part of the new season of Snooki & JWoww there later this summer.
On Sunday, more than 40 people met at the Pelican Island Property Owners Association meeting, and brainstormed ways they could prevent the pint-sized mama and her crew from filming in their community, which sits just outside of Seaside Heights where the original Jersey Shore was filmed.

When Jersey Shore star Vinny Guadagnino signed up to host his own talk show with his mother Paola, one thing he didn't expect was that she'd reveal his biggest secret.
"The most embarrassing thing that my mom has ever said about me was that I wasn't circumcised," Guadagnino, 25, tells PEOPLE. "That trumps everything! She said that when Jenny McCarthy came to do the show. I ran out of the room and I was like, 'No, no!'"

No meatball here!
Just five months after giving birth to son Lorenzo, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi says she's shed the 44 lbs. she gained during her pregnancy.
"Right now I'm 109 lbs., and I've been working out with a trainer since Halloween," Polizzi, 25, told PEOPLE at Logo's season 5 premiere party for RuPaul's Drag Race in New York on Friday. "I go four times a week, and we do legs, arms and everything. And after every one-hour workout, I do an hour of cardio."
But she's the first to admit earning her post-baby body was hard work.
