Apparently, I’ve been living under a rock. I wasn’t aware that the newest mogul in the making is none other than Snooki. You know, of Jersey Shore fame. While I haven’t been looking, the Snooks has been building an empire of sorts. What does her empire consist of, you ask? Well, I’m pleased to inform you. Check out the list:
- She is about to publish an autobiography “Confessions of a Guidette”
- Apparently she’s already published a novel entitled “A Shore Thing”
- The follow up to said novel is on the way and it’s entitled “Gorilla Beach”
- There’s a fragrance in the works as well
- The crowning jewel of her empire is going to be, wait for it… a clothing line!
I know that she has some influence, they did name her hairstyle “the Snooki” and many celebs were seen rocking the bump-it look.
But seriously, what the what? Full disclosure, I haven’t watched a millisecond of the Jersey Shore and I have no intentions of doing so. From what I’ve heard, I don’t understand anything home-girl has done that would make me want to read her story (fact or fiction), smell like her or buy her designs. For real? It’s like everyone and their inappropriate grandma can get a deal these days. I’m sure she’ll go around calling herself a designer. Forget the real designers who have gone to school, worked their way up and paid their dues. Forget the wanna-be authors who have been slaving over their manuscript and being rejected by literary agents left and right. Forget those people, the real way to achieve “success” seems to be to make a fool of yourself on a reality show and watch the opportunities come a-knocking. It’s the (new) American dream. So will you be buying her CD? You just know that has to be her next move.
