Slow news day folks. Two cast members of the mega hit show – Jersey Shore dropped a bombshell on Tuesday, when they both revealed they are not even Italian!
Snooki and fellow castmate J-Woww appeared on Fox News’ The Strategy Room, during which J-Woww revealed she was Spanish and Irish, and not Italian. Even more shocking, she also shared that “Nicole isn’t and [castmate Ronnie Magro] is not full Italian either.” By the way, Nicole is Snooki.
So what nationality is Nicole/Snooki — who regularly describes herself as a Guidette — well that answer is Chilean.
It’s safe to say Italian-American groups will not be happy with the revelation of this latest tidbit. Mainly because they were already complaining about the use of the terms “Guido” on the show, which they had always believed to be widely offensive to Italian Americans. The show perpetuates “negative stereotypes,” UNICO National President Andre DiMino told Fox last year.
“If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?” he continued.
This could prove to be rather controversial, as it will be interesting to see how people feel, mostly Italian Americans, about non Italians using the terms “Guido” and “Guidettes.”
TELL US – IS IT OFFENSIVE FOR NON ITALIANS TO USE THE TERM “GUIDO”?
