I should probably find this video of Snooki giving an 11-year-old a makeover in her likeness — heavily applied bronzer, poof, and all — really offensive. She’s a kid! She doesn’t need to look like a Jersey guidette with alcohol running through her veins! But I don’t know, I found this makeover kind of adorable and silly and funny. I mean, Snooki is a cartoon character. Like Dora the Explorer. What’s the harm in that? Keep reading »
I caught the tail end of Matt Lauer’s interview with Snooki
on “The Today Show” this morning and cringed as he sort of scolded her for being such a drunk. (She swears she’s just a wastoid during the summer.) But I apparently missed the best part of the interview, when Snooki taught Matt what a “weenis” was. Now, before you watch the video, let’s see if you can guess the definition:
- A contraption a woman can use to pee in public without exposing her backside.
- The wrinkly bit of skin on your elbow.
- Snooki’s male alter ego — full name, Weenis Sambucco.
For the record, I was clueless as to the definition of the word “weenis” and I never thought I would learn something new — except maybe dance moves — from Snooki. Keep reading »
Last night was the season premiere of the third season of “Jersey Shore,” and people, it did not disappoint. The first night, new cast member Deena got naked in front of The Situation, JWoww and Sammi got in a physical fight, and I learned at least five new words for “vagina.” But the most heartwarming moment came when a drunk Snooki tried to hook up with Vinny, who she had sex with in Miami, and he graciously declined, showing more emotional maturity than any man I’ve met in the last 12 months.

Put aside the latest Jonathan Franzen! Set down that copy of War & Peace that you’ve been trying to get through for the last five years. A real work of literary genius is about to hit bookshelves — Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s A Shore Thing is out this week! The New York Post scored a copy of the “Jersey Shore” guidette’s debut novel and leaked some of the choicest quotes. So, what can we expect from the reality tv star turned author? Find out, after the jump … [NY Post] Keep reading »
I know I was devastated when I learned that Times Square put the kibosh on Snooki’s 2011 “hamster ball” drop stunt. Yes, MTV had planned to put her in some kind of pink, glittering ball and ring in the New Year by lowering her down into the center of the action. Apparently, the bitches in charge of Times Square’s New Year’s preparations deemed the entire hamster ball apparatus “too impractical.” Ya think? Well, MTV was not ready to give up on the Snooki-drop. “We love our Times Square home and while we’re disappointed there won’t be a Snooki ball drop there, she cannot be denied! So we’re taking a road trip to the place where it all began, Seaside Heights, and droppin’ it all there,” the network said in a statement released on Thursday afternoon. I guess 2011 is going to be a good year after all. Does this make Jersey Shore the new Times Square and Snooki the new Dick Clark? [NY Times] Keep reading »
Last summer we blogged the minute-by-minute excitement surrounding Snooki‘s indignifying arrest for public drunkenness on a Seaside Heights beach. As of January 6, season three of “Jersey Shore” will be on MTV and we can all watch this little meatball wobble around the boardwalk asking where the beach is and then face-plant in the sand. In this just-released trailer, we learn Ronnie gets a proctology exam (ew!) and Sammi starts some ish with Snooki’s friend Deena, and J-Woww, and Snooki, and Ronnie … Damn, this crap does not get any less entertaining!

The “Jersey Shore” cast members sure are doing a bang-up business these days. Book deals (“book deals”), workout videos, and now … the official Snooki house slippers. Miss Polizzi’s fashion sense was quick to be capitalized on, so we’re actually surprised that it took this long to make a dollar off of her famous slippers. She now has a website (“My Official Slipper Site,” aka SnookiSlippers.com) and is selling two varieties of the ginormous shoes—a leopard print and a pink and white sneaker motif, both of which come with a classy lace-up detail. This is actually a really smart branding move that could make Snooks a nice income. We’re sure there’s a slew of teenage girls out there just dying to get all dolled up for their next Snooki slumber party. (Sigh.) [Snooki Slippers via BlackBook] Keep reading »
MTV has found its magic ingredient to stay relevant in a post music video world—”Jersey Shore.” And thus, the cast of the addictively sleazy show will be front and center at 2010′s MTV New Year’s Eve Bash. The special has lined up a series of “Shore” stunts to get viewers tuning in. The biggest and most outlandish of which has to be the plan to put Snooki in her own ball and have her drop along with Times Square’s legendary orb to ring in the New Year, hamster-style. The rest of the “Shore” slummers have been assigned the task of turning the NYC crowd into a massive fist-pumping mosh pit in hopes of breaking a Guinness World Record. For what? I’m not sure. Largest public exhibition of douchebaggery, perhaps? [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
Want Snooki to taste the pickle in your pants? Well, if you can’t stand house music long enough to hit on her at da club, now you can just stick it in this even more plastic version of the guidette. As the box promises, for $19.99, “She’s the whore from the Jersey Shore who always wants more!” So lifelike! And this doll is waterproof, so you can, of course, take her in the hot tub.

Forget power suits and pearls. If you’re running for political office in Poland, you have to look like Snooki. Well, that’s Eastern European pop star Sara May’s strategy for getting elected to a district council seat in her hometown of Warsaw. Her slogan is: “Beautiful. Independent. Competent.” But her platform seems more like: “Spray Tan. Fake Tits. Bikini.” It’s a formula that’s been working in music videos for decades. But if you’re a fan, will you also punch her hole come election day? [Trend Hunter] Keep reading »
