Maybe Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds her. The MTV hit “Jersey Shore” may show her in a less than flattering light, but it is also responsible for launching the cast members to fame and a moderate fortune.
We don’t often hear Snooki complain about being painted in a negative light, but in the latest issue of Rolling Stone, the reality star opens up what it’s like to watch the show and what she has in store for the future.
“If I do something stupid, which is pretty much the whole time, I hate it,” she explains. “I just hate it. Obviously they’re only going to put the good stuff in, and the good stuff is us drunk, so all I’m seeing is me drunk and falling down.”
She may hate seeing it, but she admits that the editors don’t paint her as something she’s not.
“That’s how I am when I party, but some of the stuff I do is, like, ‘Really, Nicole?’ I look like a freaking alcoholic,” she says. “I’m like, ‘You’re sweating, your makeup is running, you look gross.’ I just look like s****.”
As for the constant fighting we tune in every week to see, Snooki blames the circumstance, not necessarily their personalities. Being filmed and having limited access to the outside world can take its toll on the cast.
“It messes with your head. That’s why we go crazy. That’s why we fight with each other. That’s why we drink,” she explains. “We’re living in a house for two months with that s***. We can’t have cellphones, TV, radio or the Internet. If the president died, we’d have no idea. There’s no normalcy. It’s just like prison, with cameras.”
A prison that Snooki can see herself returning to. The crew is set to film their fourth season in Italy, but according to the pint-sized guidette, she’s dreaming bigger.
“When ‘Jersey Shore’ ends I’m going to do more spinoffs,” she states. “If MTV doesn’t want them, another network will be, like, ‘What does Snooki do now?’ or ‘Snooki’s getting married!'”
That’s not all. Snooks hopes to rival none other than Jessica Simpson.
“She makes millions,” Snooki says. “I’m trying to build an empire, because after this I can’t get a normal job. I mean, how do I go and sit behind a desk?”
Would you buy Snooki branded clothes? Shoes? Hairpieces? She’s already got a head start with her own line of slippers called Happy Feet.
