Snooki's ex Emilio Masella responded to her televised accusations he turned her into an “angry drunk” in this exclusive video blog for RadarOnline.com, as he told us he’s not the reason for the reality star’s taste for booze, and sincerely hopes she gets things back on track.
Snooki, after her drinking arrest, blamed her Emilio for her battle with the bottle on Thursday’s episode, saying, "Before Emilio, I was never an angry drunk ... well, I was, but I wasn't that bad."
Not so, said Emilio.
"You were drinking way, way, way before I ever met you ... at 16, 17 years old," he said. "I have no idea where this is coming from."
Emilio said that he's not even a heavy drinker, as that would stand in the way of his passion for bodybuilding.
He said clips where he visited Snooki at the jail were left on the cutting room floor, and added that she was the one who initiated their breakup, leaving him "heartbroken.
"It 's not the same anymore, I kind of miss the old Nicole," Emilio said, adding he hoped he could talk to Snooki in person. "I just want to make it known I'm not the reason for her alcoholic acts.”
"I just hope she stops drinking so much and gets better -- I don't want to see her on Celebrity Rehab."
