Here’s the situation:
I watched The Late Show with David Letterman last night in my hotel room in Atlanta. (Rory wasn’t there to tell me to go to bed.) Snooki from The Jersey Shore was his first guest.
The fact that I have never watched a single, solitary moment of this reality program has always been a point of pride for me. But every time I encounter one of the stars of the show on other programs — The Situation on Dancing with the Stars, and now Snooki on Late Show…
They seem like okay people.
Rumor has it, they don’t act very ‘okay’ on episodes of Jersey Shore. The news — and police — reports certainly don’t support that hypothesis, either. But when they are outside that reality show machine in other, more sane surroundings…
There appears to be a brain or two rattling around in their heads.
In fact, last night on Letterman, Snooki promoted her ‘Snooki Slippers,’ an oversized, plush houseshoe she is marketing under her name because — in her words — “Jersey Shore ain’t gonna last forever.”
Look at me — hawking products for Snooki. Now, that’s a sad reality.
