Jersey Shore's resident tart, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, opened up to the Associated Press to promote her new novel "A Shore Thing" and revealed she misses being called by her birth name, "Nicole." Polizzi dished to the AP: "I miss my real name. I miss people calling me Nicole."
Snooki may miss being Nicole but her book is quickly gaining buzz. The novel is a humorous glimpse into a silly, sexy, booze, and drama-filled summer on Jersey Shore. Snooki based the novel's main characters, Gia and Isabella, on the real life friendship between Snooki and Shore mate Jenni "J Woww" Farley.
