The Background Story
● Sammi's ‘Sweetheart Coast’ Beach Boutique

She cleared that she never wanted to copy or compete with Sammi and further said that she was just trying to fulfill her dreams to strengthen her career and increase her brand popularity.
The Details Behind Conflict

She further said that she always thought Snooki was her friend and she dislikes women who copy other women. On the other hand, Snooki said that Sammi’s move of blocking her really hurt and confused her and it was such a childish act to do.
