Snooki: I won't be broke like the Situation

There’s no word yet on when/where another season of MTV’s hit series will film, but Snooki isn’t worried. The self-proclaimed meatball has been saving all her money so she can support herself after the show is off the air.

“‘Jersey Shore’ is going to end soon,” Snooki told GQ. “I’m not going to spend money like Mike. He’s already broke.”

And though season 5 will most likely follow “Shore’s” surefire format, Snooks said she would do things a little differently if she were in charge.

“I wouldn't show as much drinking and partying,” she said. “I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time. … They don't show anything but us drinking and hooking up.”

“I think that if they showed the sober side of us, people would like it even more and it'd even change people's minds about us,” she added.

Snooki, who has one best-selling novel under her belt and another work of fiction on the way, also informed GQ that she's not really into reading.

"I don't read. I don't like to read 'Harry Potter' or anything like that. It's not my style."

When GQ pointed out that she's a New York Times best-selling author, Snooki responds that "doesn't mean I have to read."

For those fans who want to relive season 4, the four-disc set, which includes all 12 uncensored episodes, as well as bonus footage, will be available in stores on December 27. And if you’re experiencing GTL withdrawals with “Jersey Shore” on hiatus, fear not - your favorite fist-pumpers will be back before you know it.

Home from Italy, the gang reunites in Seaside Heights for “Shore’s” fifth season, which will air on January 5.

What we know so far: Vinny took a break from filming at the start of the season to “recharge his batteries.” But we’ll have to wait until 2012 to see the rest of the drama unfold. Well, at least the drama that's not included in this 3 minute sneak peek.

Will you watch season 5 when it premieres on January 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT?

    From a bestselling author... Well, that's it lads. Expect the Four Horsemen any day now.

    Anyone actually thinks Snooki wrote a book? Someone else wrote it and she put her name on it...

    I have never watched the show and really don't have an interest in starting but I do find something that Snooki said quite interesting. She says that MTV only shows them drinking and hooking up. MTV has made society hate them because all we see are partiers. How do you know you hate someone if you only know the part the media shows you? That just shows how shallow you are!

    I never watched one show, nor do I plan on starting, but I'm glad that this actress seems able to claim financial stability. If it's true then it could be her 'cause', kids need to know it's important to be good with money.

    I must read and experience the knowledge that Snooki imparts in her book. Who knows, maybe some profound ideas are contained within. A thorough treatise on economic issues, political intrigue, and social commentary maybe?

    Yo you haters- Jersey Shore is da bomb. Just because they are not your style or class ( assumed because you are reading a story about Snooki on CNN ) don't be disin' something you don't know. You don't know if that's all an act for MTV or not. So stop hatin.

    I've never seen the show... Never really wanted to. But, I did see on Youtube once about the orange midget bird at a bar getting out of sorts with a bloke, and he threw a right cross that knocked her out. Thought that was pretty funny... Best part, was after he did it, none of her coward mates did anything about it... Bunch sallies they are.

    I've seen parts of episodes of the Jersey Shore due to my idiot roommates and I absolutely hate everything about it, but Snooki just gained some of my respect for thinking ahead for the moment when everybody realizes how screwed up the show actually is (if that even happens). I thinks it's hilarious that even part of the cast knows that the crap they put on the show is awful.

    Damn the morons who made her a best selling author!

    Snooki, who has one best-selling novel under her belt
    Not that it's breaking news or anything, but my God do we live in a nation of idiocy. Snooki "writing" a book? Of course, someone wrote it for her, but what on earth could she possibly have to say that would warrant an entire book? CNN, I'm embarassed for you for publishing content about this prime example of american un-exceptionalism.

      Simply amazing, That the general population of a Country can be so dumbed down to the point of enjoying a trash talking piece of garbage like Jersey Shore and make money from doing it ? I will put in the context that even you can understand. Stupid Is ! Is What Stupid Dose ! Too Hard !? How about,. MTV makes billions from idiots staring into a box. showing them what they would like there life to be like ! How sad 😦
