    What strange pouf-y power does weird little Snooki have over guys?

    With the news that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and her boyfriend of eight months, Jionni LaValle, broke up over “trust issues,” the pint-sized reality star has an old paramour waiting in the wings—ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella.

    “I’m truly in love with the girl—people don’t believe me when I say it, but Snooki is a beautiful girl, inside and out, and a girl like that is hard to find,” Masella told FOX411.com exclusively. “In my eyes, we never should have broken up in the first place. I don’t understand why we did. I know she’s in love with me—and that’s a very good reason to get back together. You can’t deny how you feel.”

    HOT SHOTS: Cast of “Jersey Shore.”

    Masella believes that Polizzi cheated on LaValle, which led to their breakup.

    “Obviously, she didn’t like [LaValle],” Masella said. “They either had trust issues or she might have hooked up with someone else—I have no idea if it was Vinny [Guadagnino] or some Italian.”

    With the cast heading directly from Florence, Italy to Seaside Heights, NJ to film the fifth season of “Jersey Shore,” Masella wants to clear the air with Polizzi.

    “I’m hoping to talk with her before they start filming and have a conversation with Nicole, not Snooki,” said Masella. “Hopefully, she’ll ask me to come down to Jersey. I don’t want to try and show up like I did last year and have it look like I’m stalking the girl. I was thinking about just going there, but I want to talk with her first, if it’s possible.”

    Masella claims that reality star-turned producer Spencer Pratt put him up to chasing Polizzi on the Shore last summer.

    “I’m not a stalker,” insisted Masella. “Spencer sent me there last year to get her back. I’ve never been to the Jersey Shore and I figured it would be fun to go there. Of course, I was going to try and run into her because I hadn’t seen her since the day we broke up—since the day she left me for Miami. She thought I was in Jersey to [mess] her show up, so she already had bad impression of me before she’d even seen me down there.”

    Despite pairing up with Pratt, Masella insists that he’s not using Polizzi to further his own career.

    “Everyone was saying that I was using her to get on ‘Real World,’ but that’s not true,” he said. “She wanted to be on TV, I’ve always wanted to be on TV—she just happened to friggin’ get on a show before me.”

    But the fitness trainer from New Haven, CT plans to win her back—by just being himself.

    “I know she’s in love with me—I really don’t have to do anything,” he said. “I’m everything she ever wanted—I’m the male version of her. I’m one of a kind.”

    Masella acknowledges that his unique strategy to win back Polizzi’s affections may not work. “It’s not going to be easy to get her back,” he said. “But she’s not going to meet anybody who’s in it for her now, with all the fame she has. I’ve known her since before she even got famous.”

    Masella wants Polizzi to know that he’s waiting by the phone.

    “I never stopped loving her,” he sighed. “She knows how to get a hold of me if she wants to get a hold of me.”

    Don’t let this one get away, Snooks.
