Reality TV personality Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi revealed in a promotion for her new show “Snooki and JWOWW” that she doesn’t know the difference between kosher and organic food.
The Chilean born, Italian-American, who became a celebrity after the hit debut of MTV’s Jersey Shore in 2009, told her mother, “I think kosher food is like organic , healthy food. But Jewish people eat organic food too, so I feel like it’s all the same.”
The comment was sparked by a conversation about Jennifer Farley, (or JWOWW) who is set to star with Snooki in the new MTV program.
The comment comes in a long line of embarrassing gaffes for the strangely endearing yet iconic reality star. Despite being a best-selling author of three books, Snooki revealed in a Jimmy Kimmel interview last October that she doesn’t know who the likes of J.K. Rowling and Maya Angelou are. After Kimmel referenced Rowling – the billionaire author of the Harry Potter book series - Snooki said “I don’t know who that is, but I’m here.”
Apparently, she is also unaware of her considerable finances, notwithstanding the $150,000 paycheck she receives per episode of Jersey Shore. In an interview with The New York Times, Snooki’s father Andy Polizzi admitted that he takes care of his daughter’s finances, about which Snooki has “not a clue.”
