While viewers may be hoping for some Jersey Turnpike’ing, fist bumping and outrageous alcohol-fueled shenanigans, the stars of the popular reality show may keep it PG this season, as Jenni “JWoww” Farley exclusively tells OK! her daughter Meilani, 6, and son Greyson, who turns 5 on May 5, will be in front of the cameras with her.

And while she says motherhood forced her to change the "course" and "direction" of her life, Farley is still sharing her personal life with the world — as she continues to film Jersey Shore over a decade after it first debuted in 2009.

"It's still around. It's incredible and a blessing. I was not expecting 12 years later to have it [on the air still], and [now] they include our children," she admits.

"Jersey Shore gave me so many opportunities in life, and it gave me the career and life that I have today, so I am forever thankful for that. It even gave me my children because I met their father on the show," the mother-of-two says, referring to ex-husband Roger Mathews. "So everything I see is a blessing from the show."

When asked if she was ever hesitant to put her kids in the spotlight, the brunette beauty explains: "Being on reality TV, it's hard to keep such a big part of your life outside of it or away from it," adding that her reality is her children.

Farley even gave birth to her daughter on her Jersey Shore spinoff, Snooki & JWOWW. In that moment, she decided she’d broadcast her life until the negative starts to outweigh the positive of reality star fame, she says.

 "I only do it as long as it brings positivity," she adds.

Same goes for her kids. "The moment it's not worth it or the moment my kids say, 'Hey, I don't want to do that,' then it's over because that's their choice," the 35-year-old explains. However, Farley adds, "They just so happen — especially my daughter — to love the cameras!"

And if Meilani doesn’t follow in her mama's reality star footsteps, Farley feels she may still find her way to center stage. "Part of me realizes my daughter is so dramatic in life. I feel like she'll be great for Broadway, and I tell her that every day,” Farley gushes. “I'm like, 'There's two options for you in life, and one of them is Broadway' cause she can fake cry any second of any day of any time!"

While her kids are privy to all the glitz and glam that being a celebrity has to offer, Farley also strives to make them well-rounded — and is letting her tots take the reins on creating the design and clothing for her upcoming mommy-and-me retail store, Heavenly Flower.

"I really let Meilani take lead on the store," Farley says of her latest business venture. "I really wanted her to be a part of it cause there really is no mommy without her."

Her upscale yet kid-friendly store will "be affordable, but when the buyer comes in, they find it to be very one of a kind, with beautiful mommy-and-me pieces," she explains of her goal for the shop.

The ambitious reality star turned store owner plans to expand her apparel to include boys clothing — which Greyson will of course take a huge part in designing. 

Her decision to open a clothing store stemmed from her desire to be close to her children. "I really always thought that a retail store would ground me" and allow "me to work with my children, to have my children install what they want to see so they feel included in my career," Farley concludes.

With Heavenly Flower — whose moniker is inspired by her daughter's name — set to open in the American Dream entertainment facility in East Rutherford, N.J., in May, it seems like the perfect time for JWoww to stop and smell the roses.
