After escaping judgment last week, contestants on "Dancing With the Stars" had to face the music Monday night.
And when it came down to it, a sultry samba wasn't enough to save the "Jersey Shore's" Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi. Although Snooks earned a 27 for her routine with pro partner Sasha Farber - and out-scored the other pair in peril, Bill Engvall and Emma Slater, she wound up being the latest celebrity sent home from "DWTS."
The last time "Dancing with the Stars" had a cast member from the "Jersey Shore" compete, it didn't go so well.
But while Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino didn't get far on the ABC competition, his former housemate, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, tells "Showbiz Tonight's" A.J. Hammer that she could win it all. (And not, presumably, by Jersey Turnpiking her way through it.)
Almost seven months after giving birth to her first child, Lorenzo, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is in fighting shape.
The reality star has been working hard to slim down, and is now showing off her 42-pound weight loss on the cover of Us Weekly's latest issue.
As a member of the "Jersey Shore's" royal court - if not the queen bee - new mom Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has some words of wisdom to share with the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, Catherine Middleton.
"It's hard, but don't stress out!" Snooki advised Kate in the New York Daily News. The 25-year-old reality star and her fiancé Jionni LaValle welcomed their first child, son Lorenzo, in August.
Baby Lorenzo took his sweet time arriving on August 26, putting mom Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi through more than 24 hours of labor, but just days after his birth, the newborn was ready for his close-up.
Lorenzo graces the cover of the new issue of People magazine along with his mom, Snooki.
From what we've seen on "Jersey Shore," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is well acquainted with pulling an all-nighter - just not the kind that includes a newborn.
The new mom is getting used to parenthood one tweet at a time, as she updated her well-wishers on Twitter Monday with a post that many parents understand: "Hardly any sleep but SO worth it!"
