Nasty breakup? What nasty breakup?

Fans of MTV's "Jersey Shore" may remember the terrible split and the drama that followed JWOWW and ex-boyfriend Tom's breakup during season three. Need a refresher? JWOWW claims he stole from her, left her dogs in a sweltering house alone for two days and more. Check out the video:

But that was practically ages ago! Things seem pretty peachy now for the "Shore" resident.

"I didn't realize how happy I could be in a relationship," the 26-year-old told Life & Style of her new man of eight months, Roger. "Hopefully, I'll be able to settle down and have kids within the next couple of years -- maybe even next year," she told the magazine exclusively.

That wasn't the only surprise she revealed. "I don't see myself going to the Shore in the next five years or so," she told Life & Style. Say what? Does that mean she may not return to the hit show, or that the show may be done after the upcoming season in Italy? There have been reports that filming for the fourth season is currently delayed because several members of the cast -- including JWOWW, still haven't agreed on a contract.

Despite having not signed on the dotted line yet, it does sound like she's ready to keep filming for at least one more season. "It might be hard, but I think it'll make us stronger," JWOWW said of being away from Roger while filming in Italy. "I'm going to make sure he can visit at least once or twice, even for just 24 hours."
