Hot List 2011: Snooki


By Noah Michelson

But Snooki isn't just another beach-blanket bimbo, and she knows the life-span of a reality star's career is nothing if not short. Though Jersey Shore shows no immediate signs of flagging -- the cast is currently filming the show's fourth season in Italy and will be paid six figures per episode -- she's started to consider her next steps for when viewers finally tire of the series' fist pumping, smooshing, and unbridled bickering. Her future endeavors include more product endorsements -- she already has a line of Snooki slippers -- and a 2012 spin-off series on MTV with Jersey Shore roommate Jenni 'JWoww' Farley. And after surprising the world with her shockingly nimble moves during a guest spot on World Wrestling Entertainment's WrestleMania, which she won, she very well could be clocking more time on the mats, perhaps even making the ring her permanent home.

Before heading to Italy, Snooki let her pouf down for Out and chatted about being misunderstood, her sexual conquests, and who she thinks the biggest homo in the Jersey Shore house is.

What do you think the world's biggest misconception about you is?
There are a lot. I think people think I'm just down to have a good time and party, but that's definitely not it at all. The show is like a vacation for all of us -- it's just partying, going shopping, laying out on the beach. On the weekends obviously I want to go out and have a good time, but it's not like that every single night. If I had a choice to go out to a club on a Friday night or stay in and watch scary movies, I'm going to stay in and watch scary movies with a bottle of wine and just relax.
