When Jersey Shore’s Sammi said her new cast member Deena Cortese was “exactly like Snooki,” she was not joking around. In fact, the clips we’ve seen so far made us sort of worried that Deena, Snooki’s friend IRL, might be so Snickerfied that our girl Snooki’s original spark could be lost under twice the amount of bronzer. As the Jersey Shore season premiere nears, we couldn’t help but note that the Jersey stars similarities include:
- Approximately Cabbage Patch Doll-height in inches
- Color of tan best described as “Well-Used Basketball”
- Deena is as smush-crazy as Snooki, if not more so. As Deena explained to Life & Style, “The most guys I’ve hooked up with in one night is probably three,” the use of the word “probably” implying to us that she might not exactly know what her highest number is. “People consider me a man-eater. I don’t really like dating, though. Dates can be so awkward!”
- Deena has already showed “her goods” to The Situation, as she explained to VH1.com this morning, further following in Snooki’s footsteps. Well, and the footsteps of every girl on the Eastern Seaboard.
Too bad the holidays are over, or else Snooki’s new book A Shore Thing would find its way into my family and friends’ stockings, even if I had to crawl through their cat door in the middle of the night to put it there. Snooki announced last year that she was writing her first novel, and by “writing” we mean, “filing her nails while some assistant typed it out in 45 minutes flat.” According to publisher Simon & Schuster, Shore features cousins Gia and Bella enjoying “hot guidos, pool clubs, fried Oreos, and lots of tequila,” as well as a barely fictionalized trip to the Seaside Heights drunk tank. Here for your reading pleasure are some choice quotes plucked by the New York Post from Snicker’s authorial debut, due out tomorrow:
- “He had an okay body. Not fat at all. And naturally toned abs. She could pour a shot of tequila down his belly and slurp it out of his navel without getting splashed in the face.”
- “Any juicehead will get some nut shrinkage. And bacne. They fly into a ‘roid rage, it is a ‘road’ ‘roid rage.”
- “Gia danced around a little, shaking her peaches for show. She shook it hard. Too hard. In the middle of a shimmy, her stomach cramped. A fart slipped out. A loud one. And stinky.”
- “Gia had never before been in jail. It wasn’t nearly as gritty and disgusting as she’d seen on TV prison shows. The Seaside Heights drunk tank — on a weekday afternoon — was as clean and quiet as a church.”
- “I love food. I love drinking, boys, dancing until my feet swell. I love my family, my friends, my job, my boss. And I love my body, especially the badonk.”
A loud one. And stinky. We couldn’t have summed it up better ourselves, Snickers!

The Snooki Ball happened! Well, the pre-taping did, and as previously reported about, everyone’s favorite guidette became everyone’s favorite hamster for a night. Snooki was ensconced in a glittering ball that gently descended to the ground as a part of the taped version of the 2011 Ball Drop in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. Dressed in a leopard-print wrap dress, holding a red plactic cup (because she’s classy like that), our Snookums looked like she was having a ball! Take a look at the gallery below to catch the action. [Photos: Splash News Online]
On New Year’s Eve Snooki will be hurtling toward the pavement in a very familiar part of town, only this time it won’t be because she drunkenly toppled out of her heels. TMZ reports that the Snooki New Year’s Eve ball has been spotted in none other than Seaside Heights. The translucent orb with light-up Snooki sign will deposit the guidette gently onto New Jersey soil, meaning that after Snooki goes down, she’ll be able to walk to her house in the morning. Which is probably how she prefers it anyway.
Insiders revealed earlier today that it was Times Square officials that stopped Snooki from crawling into her hamster ball this Friday. “The Snooki ball drop isn’t going to happen in Times Square. 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,” a source explained. We guess since we watch the Jersey Shore crew the other 364 days of the year, maybe we can let this one slide. Besides, whenever we look at Snooki times stops, which would make the count down seem of anti-climactic. [Photo: Getty Images]
Get ready to ring in 2011 with a tiny guidette trapped in a hamster ball, everyone. Snooki has agreed to be inside a ball that drops in Times Square at the stroke of midnight on December 31. It’s kind of like David Blaine meets Jersey Shore meets Double Dare, isn’t it?
It will all be a part of MTV’s New Years Bash, which will also include an appearance by Flo Rida, as well as the rest of the Jersey Shore cast, and an attempt to break the world record for largest group of people to collectively fist-pump, but how boring is that compared to SNOOKI BEING INSIDE THE BALL? Did you ever think you’d get to see a Oompah Loompah plummet from the top of a tall building in front of millions of people? Dreams really do come true.
You might think the only thing patriotic about Snooki is that her skin tone is the exact shade of orange that represents a high level threat to national security, but you’d be mistaken. Snooki was on hand at the 2010 VH1 Divas Salute To The Troops to honor our servicemen and women, and during our interview with her backstage, this self-proclaimed diva proved to be just as entertaining as some of the real Divas who performed.
Snooki, wearing official military attire in the form a Marines Corps hat adorned with a pink bow, talked about the national obsession with Jersey Shore, the third season of which begins January 6, and shared some dirt on Angelina Pivarnick and The Situation. She also divulged which VH1 Diva she loves the most, but you’ll have to watch the full interview to see who she picked.
For more photos of Snooki at the show, check out our gallery below.
While Snooki‘s 23rd birthday isn’t actually until tomorrow (she was born the same day as Miley Cyrus!), the Jersey Shore star celebrated in advance at NY’s Pacha this weekend, joined by pals like J-Woww, Sean Kingston and one glorious cake at the condom company-sponsored bash. Considering how much life, laughter and love Snooks has crammed into her first 23 years, who can imagine what she’ll accomplish over the next 23? And who would want to imagine Snooki at 46 anyway? See photos from the party in the gallery below.

We may not be surprised to hear that LifeStyles Condoms will sponsor Snooki’s birthday, but it doesn’t mean we aren’t eternally grateful. With the party taking place in the VIP room at the New York club Pascha, Snooki reportedly turned down a number of liquor companies willing to foot the bill before choosing the love glove company to pay for the shindig. Snooki must have had her little calculator and Excel spreadsheet out all night, crunching numbers into the wee hours of the morning to figure out which would turn out to be cheaper. That, or the Center For Disease Control had to call in a few favors. Either way, we as Americans support this.
According to a source, “Snooki is an advocate for safe sex, and so was happy to have them as her party sponsor. They’ll probably have a booth at the party giving out condoms to guests. But this party is really for Snooki’s close friends, and she is personally paying for most of it.” Hmmm, having a condom company sponsor your party AND paying for most of it yourself? That only makes sense if Snooki’s just going to back up a semi to the side of the club and have them load the condoms straight in. A move we can totally get behind! Bring one for The Situation and Angelina, too!
About the sponsorship, Snooki’s rep says “Her message is if you are going to have sex, do it safely. It is going to be a great party.” We’re just glad to know that pickles of every size will be safe around Snooki for her birthday, and vice versa. And probably for the next week, depending on how many cases she gets to take home. [Photo: Splash News Online]
