Jersey Shore Star Nicole Polizzi Calls “Snooki” Her Partying “Alter Ego” (VIDEO)


By Daniel Gates



Nicole Polizzi visited the “Today Show” on Tuesday to tell Matt Lauer about her new book, Confessions of a Guidette.

She also tried to separate herself (a bit) from what she calls her more famous “party side” – Snooki.

After Polizzi defines what it means to be a “guidette” (“a girl with a strong personality, she doesn’t let anyone bring her down, she likes tanning, she’s very independent, and she loves to be flashy”), Lauer asks her whether “Jersey Shore” viewers ever get to see the “real” person.

“I think you see more of the party side of me, which I call ‘Snooki,’ that’s like kind of my alter ego, that’s what you see on the show,” she explains, whereas Nicole herself is more of a “calm, business ready person.”

Asked whether she thinks she’s a role model, Polizzi states emphatically that “Snooki” is “definitely not” one, but that the “strong, independent [and] lovable” Polizzi could be.
