Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi


Jersey Shore’s pint-sized Guidette, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, sat down with GQ for what she called her “first interview ever” and talked the girl behind the poof, changing Jersey Shore and how she wishes MTV would portray the cast members as the “intelligent” people they really are.

Apparently, Ms. Snookers went to college! Oh and in case you’re wondering if the New York Times best selling author is a reader – she’s not. “I don’t read,” she said. “I just used the CliffsNotes, books were too long.”

Snooki is well aware of the public’s perception of her and the cast mates, explaining “they just think that we’re stupid, that we have no education, and all we do is drink, have sex.” But she wants everyone to know she’s actually very smart! “I went to college,” where she studied Veterinary Technology! Yes – Snooki can actually assist in operating on animals and, yes, she wore leopard print scrubs! In fact, she would love to return to school and get her Vet Tech license.

Snooki also revealed she is bothered by MTV’s portrayal of the cast of Jersey Shore and how it pretty much ruined her image by making her look trashy, trampy, and totally vapid and if she were in charge things would go very differently. “I wouldn’t show as much drinking and partying. I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time — which they don’t show,” she laments. “We don’t even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don’t show anything but us drinking and hooking up.”

As for what motivates MTV to only show the negative (re: trashy) behaviors of the cast, Snooki thinks it’s all about the Benjamins! “Maybe because of the success of the show, they think that if they don’t show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn’t stay successful,” she muses. “I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it’d even change people’s minds about us.”

Whatever the perception of the show, Snooki thinks it’s absurd when people get upset about the words “Guido” and “Guidette”. Asked about some people comparing the terms to the N-word, Snooki calls those claims “ridiculous” and explains that while the N-word is “seriously offensive”, Guido is not. “’Guido’ is used as a lifestyle — like being a prep, skater, gothic. We’re Guidos. Plus, I’m not even Italian!”

Snooki rebuffs accusations that Jersey Shore has given her city and state a bad reputation. “They need to get over it,” she snaps. “We’re not representing Jersey.” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie unfortunately disagrees and was so disappointed with Jersey Shore he denied MTV’s tax credit, which is doled out to encourage filming in the state. Mr. Christie sent a letter to the network stating he was “duty-bound to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a $420,000 bill for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

Making it clear that success – and the money that comes with it – hasn’t gone to her head, Snooki revealed that her outfit cost “like 50 bucks!” The reality star reportedly made $750,000 in the last year alone, but is very conservative with her money! “I save it,” she insists. “Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!” Yikes!

That’s impressive, because The Situation allegedly earned around 2.5 – 3M last year! He must belong to the Kate Gosselin school of saving!

As for what’s next for Snooki, the Donald Trump fan (who even said he would get her vote for the GOP presidential nod) is expanding her brand! “I’m actually trying to get a clothing line together. I have perfume and tanning lotion, eyelashes, nail polish…” She also has a new novel, Gorilla Nation, coming soon! Furthermore, Snooki is making a cameo in two movies and hopes to land a guest spot on The Office!

THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE IS INTELLIGENT AND MISREPRESENTED BY MTV? DO YOU THINK THEIR BEHAVIOR ADDS TO THAT MISCONCEPTION? ARE YOU SURPRISED SNOOKI IS GOOD WITH MONEY?

On last night’s episode of Jersey Shore, the girls and guys take separate mini-vacays. Things are off-again-on-again for Snooki with both her boyfriend Jionni and her biffle JWoww. The Situation stirs the pot, and Pauly D sits back and watches it all like he’s on my couch watching with me. I actually think that would be a blast!

Snooki wakes up discombobulated in Vinny’s bed, and she goes to wake up JWoww at the chipper hour of 7am. Jenni doesn’t know where Snooks slept, but Snooki reveals in her confessional that she would never cheat on Jionni. In fact, she specifically remembers telling him “we’re done” before hopping into Vin’s bed. JWoww reluctantly gets up and fills Nicole in on how she defended her to Mike the previous night.

Mike wanders into the ladies’ room after hearing a lot of yelling. Snooki starts screaming at him. Perhaps the lady protests too much. Snooki and JWoww head out for a breakfast of mimosas, and Mike calls his friend Unit (seriously?) who was diddling Ryder on the night in question. The Situation wants to make sure he didn’t make up the sexcapades in his head. Unit confirms Mike’s version of the story. Over their champagne brunch, Snooki admits to JWoww that she hooked up with Vinny but that they didn’t smush….that she remembers.

Last night’s Jersey Shore was one hot mess of tears, douchiness, sex, and some absolutely horrible boots. The whole thing was just A. LOT.

Snooki wakes up the next day after Jionni leaves feeling awful, and still sporting her hot pink leopard swimsuit. Pauly D, along with Rawn and Deena, head to work, and Pauly is trying to be as loud and annoying as possible to exasperate his roommates’ hangovers.

Back at the villa, Snooki can’t get in touch with Jionni so she seeks the advice of her BFF JWoww. Unfortunately for Snooki, Jenni wasn’t blackout wasted the night before and she remembers all the kind and loving things her friend screamed at her in the streets. She decides to sleep in and ignore Snooki’s whining. Undeterred, Snooki puts on a hoodie (or is that a dress?) and her Ewok boots to go out day drinking alone. That is always a great idea!

On last night’s Jersey Shore, there was a guido/gorilla break up of juicehead proportions. Kuckas were flashed, tears were shed, screams were heard ’round Italia. It was pretty epic.

We rejoin the meatballs post-wreck. If Snooki thinks that this is the worst thing to happen to her while she’s in Italy, she needs only to wait a few days! Snooki gets a breathalyzer, and because she doesn’t have her license, she and Deena are being carted off by the Italian police. The guys arrive with her license just in time to see the house car being towed. The boys spend two hours in the waiting room at the station before they are able to free the meatballs.

Once home, Snooki calls Jionni to tell him of her recent escapades. Jionni tells her that Roger can’t come any more because he has to work. Snooki relays the news to JWoww, and she calls Roger very upset. It seems Roger’s leave from work has been denied. I think there has to be more to it, but I want to like the Roger I met at the shore.

Jersey Shore in all its trashy glory is returning; so hold onto your pouf and get ready to move to Florence, Italy for the Season 4 Premiere!

So what can you expect from this season’s Italian adventure? According to Executive Producer, SallyAnn Salsano: “The dynamic is supercrazy and explosive and yet more caring.” SallyAnn also relays being thousands of miles away from real friends and family, the cast had to rely on each other for support instead of bickering constantly!

While one might expect the Guidos and Guidettes to take to Italy like ducks to water, apparently the cast members had a difficult time adjusting to the lack of available facilities, i.e. GTL: We rarely made it to the gym,” says Vinny. “That’s unheard of for us. But it’s not really a big thing there. And these little weird streets that were built in the 1000s… going to the laundromat, you have to haul your luggage through friggin’ Italian villages. That made us stop doing certain things in our routine.”

The Guidettes also had some difficulty with Italian architecture, as apparently stripper shoes are not compatible with cobblestones, explains Sammi: The worst thing was the cobblestone roads and walking in heels. I had to buy a lot of flats, which I would probably never wear in Jersey.”

Despite the difficult surroundings, the cast still made sure to bring the drama to the max! And while no one is revealing the biggest conflict – apparently the Guidos were the source of most of the conflicts, without Angelina there to annoy JWoww, who reveals: “They were doing the catfighting.” Pauly D concurs: “You’ll be surprised to see the drama that sparks this year.”

There was one routine they didn’t have to give up, besides fighting: partying! “The guys, we went hard in Italy. There were a lot of entertaining nights,” relays Ronnie.

“Jersey girls still found us,” says Pauly D. And lucky for them “American college students are far easier to get home at night than Italian girls,” says Salsano. Well, she has a job I certainly don’t envy!

In other Jersey Shore news, it appears filming for Season 5, the last and final season, has already wrapped! Wow – these Guids move fast in more ways than one! To celebrate the end of an era, Snooki got her nose pierced! A picture of the pierced Snooki is below!

The cast also bid farewell to the very brave Shore Store, which was ballsy enough to employ them during their time on the Jersey Shore. After bidding farewell, The Guidettes decided to hang out on the roof one final time. I wonder what they’ll all be up to next?

Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, 8/4 at 10/9c on MTV. A preview of the upcoming season is below!

Will you be watching? Are you sad Jersey Shore is ending? Do you think the Guidos and Guidettes will remain friends?

Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will have to look for another way to ring in the New Year now that she has been banned from the Times Square area on Dec. 31.

According to the NY Post, MTV concocted a plan to drop Snooki in a hamster- toy-like ball in Times Square Friday night.  MTV however found themselves in trouble once the Times Square officials found out what the network was planning. The officials told MTV it didn’t have permission to do a Snooki ball drop from the roof of its studios.

“The request to have her in a separate ball on a setback roof came too late and was too impractical to fit into our outdoor events,” a spokesman for the event organizers said yesterday.

Meanwhile, an insider tells Popeater, “At midnight, the crowd and the media will be watching Mayor Bloomberg, Dick Clark and the official ball drop, not a cast member of the ‘Jersey Shore.’” Ouch.

TMZ is also reporting that the Snooki ball drop will still be happening, but instead in Jersey Shore. The ball, pictured below, has a giant lit Snooki sign on it.

Oh yeah, the new season of the Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, January 6, 2011 at 10/9c on MTV.

They’re baaack! The crazy kids of Jersey Shore are set to return to MTV on January 6 for their 3rd and most likely final season.

And for the first time on Monday night, MTV aired a 30 second trailer to promote the third season. In the preview clip, posted below, Vinny is shown engaging in a four-way kiss, the new cast member Deena Nicole Cortese is shown getting down and dirty, and it seems Jwoww and Sammi get into yet another physical fight.

Also shown is Snooki‘s now infamous drunken fiasco that ended in her being arrested. Based on the preview clip, the formula of drinking, fighting and fist pumping remains in full effect. Should be a hit! The last season of the show brought MTV it’s best ratings in a very long while. The show averaged over 5 million viewers per episode.

Season 3 premieres on Thursday, January 6, 2011 at 10/9c on MTV.

In other Shore news, TMZ is reporting that cast member Jenni Farley aka JWoww is being sued by her ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis, who has been featured on both seasons of the show.

Tom is alleging he served as JWoww’s business manager, helping her sign deals with MTV, nightclubs, a tanning lotion company and even a plastic surgeon. In court documents, Tom claims he was the one who negotiated her Jersey Shore deal of $17,500 per episode plus a $75k bonus “dependant on ratings at the end of the season.”

According to Tom, JWoww stiffed him and he now wants $350,000 to make things right. Sources close to JWoww however deny Tom’s claims, stating he did not negotiate her tanning or MTV contract and he was paid for the appearances he booked.

JWoww also fired off a letter to her ex a few weeks ago requesting he return the nude photos of her in his possession. The letter read, “It has come to [Jwoww's] attention that you may be in possession of certain photos of her that may be derogatory to her image and in violation of her contract with MTV.”

And the photo above is of the Jersey Shore cast with Barbara Walters as they earned a spot on Barbara Walters’ annual list of the “10 Most Fascinating People.” The cast members gave Barbara a lesson in GTL — gym-tan-laundry — grenades,” and smooshing.”

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT JERSEY SHORE SEASON 3?

Jersey Shore’s breakout star Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki, got a verbal lashing from a New Jersey Judge during her court appearance yesterday.

This all stems from Snooki’s July 30 arrest for public intoxication.  According to UsWeekly, the charges were later changed to “creating a public nuisance, disorderly conduct and annoying beach-goers.”

“You seem to be acting like a Lindsay Lohan wannabe in this matter, going through life rude, profane, obnoxious and self-indulgent,” Judge Damien Murray told Snooki following her sentence of two days of community service and fines totaling $533.

The Judge didn’t end there, also questioning whether Snooki’s drunken antics was all for show. Judge Murray told Snooki that if it was all for TV, she needed to decide if “it was worth trading your dignity for a paycheck.”

Snooki appeared remorseful for her behavior as she said she was “very embarrassed” when she addressed the court.  She later tweeted “Ah never again! So scary…thank you judge for understanding, I’m very thankful for that! Whew…now I can breath!”

A new episode of Jersey Shore airs tonight during which Sammi will likely utter the words “I’m done” a minimum of 10 times before jumping back into bed with Ronnie.  Photos of Snooki during her court appearance below -
