As reported in February, Snooki of MTV’s reality show Jersey Shore tried to trademark her nickname. Snooki was hoping to secure the trademark for use making public appearences and to release a book using the name. It was pointed out that the name was a sound-alike of the name of a children’s book, Snooky [The Underwater Cat]. Seems the US Patent and Trademark Office were handy with Amazon.com too, as on Thursday they decided to reject the application to trademark the term as it sounded too much like one already in existance.
‘Snooki’ is already taken. The name was registered for the Adventures of Snooky; a 2004 children’s book about a cat knocked overboard on a fishing excursion. ‘The terms SNOOKY and SNOOKI are very similar,’ the US Patent and Trademark Office wrote in its trademark refusal, obtained by TheSmokingGun.com. ‘Therefore, given the similarity of marks and identity of goods, there is a likelihood of confusion.’ [Pop Crunch]
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, was arrested today. The reality star was arrested, in Seaside Heights, NJ and according to TMZ she was snatched up by the Seaside Heights popo for disorderly conduct. According to the site, Snooki was partying earlier at a bar doing body shots; the photographs at the links below show her pouring cola into her beer bong and not alcohol. She’s in police custody.
There’s a bunch of pictures of her arrest on TMZ; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 (ass crack), 8 (with the popo), 9 (being dragged away), 10 (being put in a police car).
UPDATE: The booking photo of Snooki after her arrest. She’s now released.
Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) has given a new interview with Steppin’ Out magazine (known to those who’ve ever picked up any other magazine as The Tackiest Piece of Crap Ever, Monthly). In the July 21, 2010 Steppin’ Out issue, for which Snooki also dons the cover, above, the reality star discusses how although her less-famous castmates are high off the hairspray fumes, she’s mellow yellow.
“Myself, Pauly, Vinny and Jenny [JWoww], we’ve all stayed the same,” she says in the new issue of Steppin’ Out magazine. “We’re the closet friends in the house. I trust them with my life… It hasn’t gotten to our heads.”
She continues, “I know the others want the same opportunities that Mike [The Situation] and I get, but we don’t control those things. The media isn’t asking for the others so they can’t really be mad at me.” Noting Pauly D’s rising stature as a DJ and Jenni [JWoww]‘s fashion line, she still concedes, “I can understand why the others might be jealous. They aren’t doing anything, but they should still be happy for me.” [Us]
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, one of the people who is probably not being booted off Jersey Shore, discusses recent weight loss with Access Hollywood.
By ‘discusses’, of course, I mean she shamelessly shills for a company with the most idiotic diet concept I’ve ever heard of. The reality star said on Wednesday that she’s already lost 5 pounds with Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet, and hopes to lose 5 to 10 pounds more. This is after admitting issues with her weight and an eating disorder from her days as a high school cheerleader. This is the second dumbest weight loss secret reveal since Tori Spelling blamed hers on Swine Flu.
“I actually noticed that celebrities were taking Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet and I thought, ‘This has got to work,’” she said. The diet. which cuts out breakfast and lunch in favor of the doctor’s specially baked cookies, cuts calories down to 1,000-1,200 a day. “I eat six cookies a day and then I have like chicken for dinner, or fish,” Snooki explained. “Something healthy.” She added that she’s turned her mom onto the diet trend as well. “She lost at least 10 pounds. So I helped my mom out,” Snooki said.
Pictures show Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, out and about throughout 2010.

Nicole Polizzi, a.k.a. Snooki, and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast, are currently filming in Miami, FL. The hot weather must be making our upside down traffic cone sweat out her poof. Something’s got her buggin’. The firecracker was caught on camera, as she filmed scenes for the second season of the reality show. She was at a Miami bar, when some dude came up to her and whispered something in her ear. Whatever it was, it made her angrier than if he’d rubbed off her fake tan. Once the guy pulled away harsh words were exchanged, as were slaps and thrown drinks. The crowd cheered Snooki, once all was said and done.
The MTV reality star was doing shots with Jenni JWoww Farley at Ocean’s 10 bar in Miami Saturday when a man approached her. “This particular guy was obviously interested and she wasn’t,” a witness [said]. “She told him, ‘Don’t [f-ck] with me’ so he snatched her drink and walked off.” Snooki [then] threw a handful of food at the guy, and then slapped him on his shoulder and his face, before tossing a plastic cup at him. The guy retaliated by dumping his own drink all over Snooki. Jwoww ran over screaming “What the [f-ck] happened?” as security threw him out. MTV cameras caught everything on tape.
