You know Nicole Polizzi as Snooki from MTV's hit show Jersey Shore. People in Poughkeepsie used to know her as the fake-tanned, 80-pound girl.
After The Situation mocked Snooki's "rolls" on the show last week, he hit close to home. She tearfully announced she once had an eating disorder.
"In high school, I really wouldn't eat," Nicole Polizzi revealed on The Insider on Tuesday. "I would only have lunch, and I would only have salads."
"It got so crazy that I would only eat a cracker or a cucumber a day and I would feel full. I would go into the nurses office every day and I would weigh myself. When she [the school nurse] realized that I hit 80 pounds, she was like, 'This isn't good.'"
Luckily for her, the nurse notified Snookers' parents.
"My parents told me, 'You need to eat, this is dangerous,'" says Snooki, who is 4-foot-9. "So I gained my weight back to like 98, where I always was."
On Friday, The Situation (a.k.a. Mike Sorrentino) said that he felt bad after mocking his co-star while they were dining out together in Atlantic City.
"I regret saying it because I have a sister and a mother, but at the same time, everything happened so quickly and that is what happened," he said.
You know how it goes. The Situation quotes just happen so fast. That's nice that he apologized, though, and we're glad Snookems is healthy now.
Well, minus that hair.
