"Jersey Shore" is clearly attempting to take over every inch of pop culture, what with their headline-grabbing ratings and past forays into music, and one of the show's most famed cast members has been doing her own due diligence promoting her book, "A Shore Thing."
Yes, the fictionalized account of the summertime antics of two 20-something cousins/BFFs on - where else? - the Jersey Shore was written by one Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, who's been working hard talking up her debut novel.
CNN caught up with Snooki the other night, fresh off her taping of Letterman's Top Ten List on the "Late Show," to squeeze in a few incredibly pertinent questions before she headed to a book signing.
CNN: "Jersey Shore" has a broad fanbase. Who are your most surprising fans? Any A-Listers?
CNN: You’ve got an extensive beverage repertoire, as proven by your consumption on “Jersey Shore.” What’s your favorite drink?
Polizzi: If I'm going to a nightclub I'll have a healthy vodka seltzer. As for soft drinks, I usually like to drink lemon water – it's really good!
CNN: If you could have a romance with any Hollywood A-Lister, who would it be?
Polizzi: Paul Walker or Vin Diesel.
CNN: Are you interested in an acting career?
Polizzi: Oh yeah! I do a lot of stuff on "Jimmy Kimmel." I like that! If I could get a spot on "The Office" or something like that, I would love to do that!
CNN: So then do you plan to complete your vet tech degree?
Polizzi: I definitely would love to. I mean, if this all fails and, like, dies, I still have that backup plan where I'd love to go back to school and get my license.
CNN: Would you ever do "Dancing With the Stars" or a "Real Housewives"-type show?
Polizzi: Possibly in the future. I'm down for anything.
CNN: Would you ever consider plastic surgery?
Polizzi: No. I'm scared of needles. I can't even! I'm scared of anesthesia because I'm scared, like, you know those stories where they feel everything when they're under? I feel like that would happen to me. So I'm not even gonna take that chance.
CNN: Any plans to write another book?
Polizzi: Yes, I actually have a couple more ideas of books that I wanna do. If this book does well hopefully I can do a sequel.
CNN: What about writing a non-fiction book?
Polizzi: Right! Like a guide to how to be Guidette - something like that.
CNN: What's up next for the Snooki brand?
Polizzi: I just launched my jewelry line. We have a new piece for Valentine's Day. I also have my slipper line and I'm working on my clothing line right now.
