LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Ouch! Snooki tells it like it is…
The pint-size “Jersey Shore” star stopped by Access Hollywood Live on Thursday to share her thoughts on well, just about everything — including her hookups, “badonk,” drunken arrest and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s “bad decision” to participate in “Dancing with the Stars.”
“Have you been asked [to join “Dancing with the Stars”], and would you do it?” Kit Hoover asked Snooki.
“I feel like ‘Dancing with the Stars’ is for like, celebrities that fell off and they need a way to get back in,” Snooks told Kit and Billy Bush.
“You just took a dig at your boy, The Situation!” Billy laughed.
“Well, yeah, he made a bad decision,” Snooki continued. “But, you know, he did good anyway.”
“You think he made a bad decision going on it?” Kit asked. “He shouldn’t have done it?”
“I shouldn’t have said that,” Snooki laughed. “Mike has a lot going for him and he could have waited a little more to do ‘Dancing with the Stars.’”
“Jersey Shore” returns with a double dose of all new shenanigans on Thursday for the second half of its second season, which includes an episode featuring a stumbling Snooki being escorted off of the beach by law enforcement officers, and then later ‘cuffed.
“Remember when you had that little problem there, stumbling around the beach, a couple of cocktails in you?” Billy asked Snooki. “There was a little question as to whether or not that would make it into the show… how do you feel about it being part of the show?”
“I really don’t care, I mean I had a good time,” Snooki shrugged. “I just got locked up for four hours like, you know? Like… crap happens.
“We went out that night, I had work at ten o’clock in the morning, so we went out till like four. So, I wake up and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, I feel like crap,’” Snooki explained. “So I went to the fridge and I took some shots of vodka, I went to work and then I got out at two o’clock in the afternoon, I went straight to the bar. And then I got arrested at like, three.”
While the Princess of Poughkeepsie has enjoyed her share of romance with the “Shore” house boys (including Situation, Vinny and DJ Pauly D), she’s now happily involved with Jionni, an outsider who is “going to school to be a gym teacher.”
“[Situation] was like, season one and that was it and then I went to Vinny, ‘cause you know, Vinny’s cute and he’s a sweetheart, but um, now he’s like, a jerk so I’m over the boys,” Snooki told Billy and Kit.
“…[Jionni] has his own life — he’s like, ‘You do your life and I’ll do mine.’ He doesn’t want to like, follow me around when I’m in LA, or you know, try and be a part of my life and that’s what I like about him.”
At just 4’9”, the boisterous 23-year-old admits that while she has an incredible tolerance for alcohol (because she’s “been practicing for years”), the boatload of booze has taken a toll on her once “ripped” body.
“I love my body, especially the badonk, but I’m losing that because I’m training,” Snooki said. “I started seeing pictures like, recently of me and I’m like, ‘Oh my God, like, what happened?’ I think it’s just from partying and like eating bad, so, I just want to just get healthy that’s all.
“I could get ripped,” Snooki later added. “I could get a situation – I’ll show you!”
Catch all of the action when “Jersey Shore” returns to MTV at 10 PM on Thursday.
