You'd think after her now famous encounter with the fist while taping Jersey Shore last summer, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi would lie low on the bar scene for a while. But don't count on a VH1 reality show celebrity to do something so ridiculous. The breakout star on MTV's smash hit Jersey Shore is reportedly being paid in the neighborhood of $10,000 just to show up on parties - although it's almost always certain that pole-dancing is included in the package.
And not just Snooki, the seven guidos and guidettes from Jersey Shore are partying it up from coast to coast. Just recently, Snooki was spotted at the Opium Nightclub within the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The 21-year-old Marlboro, New York native strut it out in the dance floor in a mini-black dress while pole-dancing.
As you know, Snooki made headlines after a footage surfaced of some party person punching her in the face. Yet contrary to how Jersey Shore portrays her, she says she's not so outgoing. "I never went further than just making out. I haven't slept with anyone in a really long time."
She certainly went a long way from her humble Jersey Shore beginnings. In her MTV bio: Nicole is looking to meet the man of her dreams. When she goes to the gym, she goes in full makeup, hoping to make a splash with all the toned men. Her height has been as much of a strength as it has been an obstacle, and it will color her summer at the Shore in a big way.
She did color our summer alright.
