Is Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi the next Kim Kardashian? Does anyone even know what we mean by that? Probably not on both counts.
We're not suggesting that Snook is about to be smushed by Ray J on film, though that'd be a heck of a story, or that she's in Kim's fame league.
But she's a moneymaking fame machine in and of herself, and as far as most of humankind is concerned, for seemingly no reason. Sound familiar?
Peas in a pod. A useless pod.
If the pint-size Jersey Shore guidette stays on track, she may be able to do it. She revealed to E! all the things she has going on (excerpts below) ...
On Dancing With the Stars: They're saying I'm holding out for money ... I never got asked to even do the show, so I don't know where that's coming from. I'd do it, but probably not right now because I'm so busy with everything going on.On her fragrance: "I'm really excited by it. It's called Snooki by Nicole Polizzi. It's kind of like a cotton candy smell, sweety and fruity. A flirty scent."
On her boot line: "It's called Snooki Boots. I was going to name it Snuggs, but that's taken. I have a black and a leopard-print one, clogs and slip-ons."
On how much longer she will keep doing Jersey Shore, which wrapped filming on Season 5: "I'm down to do as many as they want us to."
On giving Kim and all the Kardashians a run for their money in the fame game: "Hopefully. You know I'd love to be on their level. I'm trying."
