Dominoes pizza to Snooki: Tick-tock your fifteen minutes are almost up

Spike TV's 7th Annual Video Game Awards 2009 - Arrivals
Say what you will about Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, the pint-sized orange-hued trash-talking star of controversial new MTV reality show Jersey Shore, her profile is definitely on the rise. I’m seeing this chick everywhere and there’s something refreshing about her in a sea of cardboard Kardashians and Pratts. Snooki’s punch to the face brought her to our attention but her personality keeps her on the radar. She doesn’t have to work too hard for coverage because she’s such a character.

Snooki, 21, told the advertisers who decided to pull their commercials from the show “F you,” and in turn one of those advertisers is noting the source. A rep from Dominoes pizza told E! Online that “there’s no need to get into a war with this young girl, because tick-tock, her fifteen minutes are almost up.” I beg to differ, and if so Dominoes just helped extend it a little longer by commenting. Dominoes said they didn’t take any money out of their ads with MTV, but it sounds like the rearranged their ads to avoid being associated with Jersey Shore.

The foul-mouthed reality starlet recently told Steppin’ Out magazine that she has some thoughts for Domino’s, Dell, UNICO and American Family Insurance: “F—k you! If you don’t want to watch, don’t watch. Just shut the hell up! I’m serious…F—k you!”

Snooki’s elegant outburst follows the decison of Domino’s, etc… to pull their advertising from the hit MTV reality show.

A rep for Domino’s says his first thought was to decline commenting to avoid giving Snooki extra publicity. But unlike Dell, he went ahead and gave us a lengthy comment anyway…

“Our first response was, ‘What a classy young lady—her parents must be so proud,'” the rep told us today. “There’s no need to get into a war with this young girl, because tick-tock, her fifteen minutes are almost up.”

Despite the beef between Domino’s and the New York Guidette, the pizza giant’s rep assures us there are no hard feelings toward MTV. “We have no issue with MTV or the programming it airs,” the rep said. “Just like viewers have a choice of what they want to watch, advertisers have a choice on what shows they want to advertise.”

“We didn’t pull a penny from MTV,” the rep continued. “We love what they do. We never made any critical commentary. It was a 30-second call, and MTV said, ‘OK,’ and that was it.”

I definitely think Snooki is on to better things when and if this Jersey Shore show ends. OK Magazine has a new interview with her and she says her goal is to get her own dating show, “Snookin for Love.” I can see it happening. There’s also an interview with her in In Touch in which she talks about her beauty regime. It includes copious amounts of Avon products sold by her mom and she recommends Paul Mitchell hairspray for the best hold. They posted the photo below of Snooki “without” makeup and the trademark poof in her hair. That’s what I look like after I put my makeup on. We’ll be seeing more of Snooki, and I get the feeling that she won’t pull a bunch of desperate stunts like Tila Tequila.

Here’s a link to a video of Snooki on The Wendy Williams show. (I can’t embed the video here.) She seems like a lot of fun.

    I am sick of uneducated scumbags getting rich and famous for having no shame so I am glad to see advertisers (or anyone for that matter) taking a stand against this heinous phenomenon.

  2. bella says:

    And her sex-tape will be released on the internet in 3, 2, 1…

  3. bella says:

    I can see the reality show now…something along the lines of “Rock of Love” combined with “For the Love of RayJ.” Yeah, she’s got Tila Tequila written all over her!

  4. Guttersnipey says:

    Whatever. I LOVE this chick. At least she’s not trying to be something she ISN’T. She IS a heavily-spackled, hairspray-addicted, foulmouthed guidette. At least she isn’t trying to be all “Klassy” like a peed-on Kardashian.

    Besides, I’ll bet Domino’s has appropriated about a thousand Italian cliches in their ads. Oh, and their pizza blows.


  5. Ophelia says:

    Does she realize she is orange? It’s not attractive; when I first saw her I thought she had a vitamin deficiency. Maybe everyone is so obsessed with her because she’s the closest thing anyone has seen to an Oompa Loompa.
    And she is soooo much prettier without makeup! I never would have guessed, but she should just never wear makeup and model or something equally intellectually taxing (i.e. a dating show requires as much thinking). I’ve seen Jersey Shore once and it was super trashy. But kinda funny ^_^

  6. Stella says:

    she looks a lot better without all that make-up. i just can’t understand why these girls think its cute to put on 20lbs of make-up, some trashtastic outfit and parade themselves about in public… they look like 40 yr old crack whores. I guess I’m getting to old to see the appeal. Also- its time to end this hair-extension trend! It’s not necessary or cute to have your hair that long- it looks awful (and like horse hair)- get a haircut, cool it on the styling products (making it look totally fried and unhealthy)and lay off the make-up… it would do wonders for many of these “up and coming” young ladies.

  7. macaquinha says:

    who is that woman next to her? she looks like a cheap catherine zeta jones

  8. Enonymous says:

    They look Asian, who are these people?

  9. Pont Neuf says:

    BitterBetty, Bella, I couldn’t agree more with both of you. What exactly is so different and endearing about this tart?

    She is an ignorant, unintelligent, foul-mouthed, uncouth, imbibing slag who has achieved VERY minor infamy for behaving like scum alongside a bunch of orange, fugly underclass cretins.

    Why should we like her? Because she got punched in the face by a hulking gorilla, during a drunken brawl that she started herself? Oh my God, that is SO awesome! Snooki for president!

    And please, don’t tell me that these people are different from the Kardashians or those simpering idiots from ‘The Hills’. The only thing that makes them different is that the trashiness of the Jersey Shore fools isn’t as scripted.

  10. naye in VA says:

    Snooki looks less like her Spanish roots with all the makeup on. She really is an attractive, albiet stumpy, woman. In fact, i see too many pretty girls who look so trashy becuase they must have thick blac circles aroung their eyes and stupid hair. All the girls on the show look like that come to think of it. And i really wonder what they truly think of themselves

  11. Relli says:

    Dominoes really said that! Gosh now I am thinking the commercial where they talk about their feelings being hurt because their pizza sucks is less genuine…….

    hee hee now but seriously have you seen that commercial? They truly suck.

  12. Neelyo says:

    I enjoyed laughing at her for the episode I watched but I don’t think she should be encouraged. Do we really need another reality TV bimbo? No offense to bimbos.

  13. manda says:

    I love how advertisers think it’s such a big deal what show their commercial appears with, as if people (1) make any sort of connection and (2) actually watch the commercials.

    I always heard dominos donates lots of money to the pro-life cause, which is of course their prerogative, but that’s enough for me not to support them.

  14. Feebee says:

    I don’t understand a) Snooki and b) why people, in this case the Domino’s rep, incorrectly use the term “young girl” when talking about a 21 year old female. She is a young woman. A young girl would be in the range of 5-9.

    Snooki has cause me inner turmoil because I thought it was hilarious when that guy punched her. I find male violence on female abhorrent so I cannot reconcile my feelings on this one. I still feel sorry for the guy as it appears to be totally out of character.

  15. Firestarter says:

    Look, the star of the show is “The Situation”! : )

  16. mary jones says:

    This chick is hideously ugly with or without makeup. And anyone who thinks otherwise needs their eyes checked.

  17. jen says:

    @7: The girl beside her in the photo is Jenni (aka JWOW) from Jersey Shore.

    And yes, I’m embarassed that I actually know that. I secretly love the show and all of its ridiculousness.

  18. Kevin says:

    I LOVE the show. the girl next to her is J-WOW. She’s on the show too.

  19. pickelhaube says:

    I love Domino’s pizza, and Snooki is OK I guess. I find her entertaining, but I also feel kinda bad for her since she seems to have no class. But hey, whatever works for her, if this is the lifestyle she covets, then good for her for getting it, even though I personally cannot see what is so desirable about it. She can have it with my blessing, better her than me.

  20. Etienne says:

    She not Italian but hispanic adopted from Chile.

  21. nj says:

    Doiminos pizza is like eating ketchup on cardboard. I wouldn’t touch that crap with you bombarded the world with advertising. It is beyond disgusting. I feel sorrow for anyone who thinks that is what pizza tastes like.
    Leave Snooki alone. She is a character!

  22. GatsbyGal says:

    Wow, she…actually looks pretty beautiful without that horrendous makeup smeared all over her face. She looks lucid and real, instead of a stupid character.

  23. jesika says:

    She reminds me of Christina Aguliera (Spelling is WAY off, sorry)..

  24. marie says:

    My God!! Don’t encourage these people. It seems the more classless the person the more you encourage them.

  25. brenda says:

    She looks like Christina Aguilera during her chubby dark hair phase.

  26. ligeia says:

    love her, she is not ashamed of being a loud obnoxious attention whore. she’s a character.

  27. hannah says:

    She isn’t like the kardashians? whats the difference?

    the annoying reality show, check
    the clown makeup, check
    talentless, check
    wh*re, check
    famewh*re, check

    i see no difference

  28. Snookie Dookie says:

    I can’t think of anyone that needs a major makeover more than this idiot. If she were my daughter I would disown her in a heartbeat. Disgusting whore.

  29. Sumodo says:

    I love Snooki. She’s real.

  30. Just a Poster says:

    Who are these people and why does that chick always do the duck lip?? Bet she will regret it when her lips look all wrinkly in about 3 years.

  31. mollination says:

    I love how you covered her CB. I opened this article expecting you to trash the hell out of her, and I freakin adore her. I wanted to hate before I actually watched the show, but she is so real and refreshing and hysterical. I love love love her, the situation, pauly d, and sometimes I like Jwoww.

    I like how all the guys in the house get along. Ahhh this show is so addicting and awesome.

  32. GracieXDoes says:

    I would boycott Domino’s for being silly, little playground drama queens (“Tick-tock” from a rep? Really?), but their pizza sucks so bad I never eat it anyway.

  33. Dhavy says:

    I haven’t seen the show but what I’ve seen and read from her is just trashy. Im tired of all these reality crappy shows, I think the networks just dont want to disn out the money anymore.

    I did enjoy the spoof they did on her on SNL, hilarious! they called her Garfield – she looks like it too LOL

  34. Firestarter says:

    I love Domino’s Pizza. There, I said it.

  35. hatsumomo says:

    Hey! I like Domino’s! And Pizza Hut….

  36. gg says:

    Shorty makes a horrible drag queen.

    And Domino’s Pizza DOES BLOW.

  37. hatsumomo says:

    and one more thing, in all the pics I’ve seen of this girl, why is her hive always crooked? Or not combed properly? I rock the hive look, albeit with all my hair up not just half, and I always get it perfectly centered and balanced. Why for the love of God, cant she do the same?!

  38. Anastasia says:

    Well, UNISCO is also pissed off about this show and encouraging advertisers to pull out of it. They are appalled at the gross stereotypes being perpetuated about Italian-Americans, and though I’m not Italian-American, I can’t say that I blame them.

    It’s not JUST Domino’s, in other words.

    HOW is this girl refreshing? She’s about as refreshing as a fresh case of syphillis. She’s uneducated, trashy, and completely unattractive and apparently intentionally makes herself so.

    The guys on the show are definitely no better.

  39. Kathie says:

    Snooki is cheap, obvious, tactless, self aggrandizing, free of morals, class and taste. Now I ask you what about her doesn’t scream “Kardashian baby separated at birth from her siblings!” They have the giantess, now they can have the dwarf. I say Kris, adopt this child now or just come out and admit you had her and gave her away! That way she can “snook for love” on KUWTK or better yet now that all the girls are engaged or otherwise occupied they can help her snook!

  40. Kevin says:

    She kind of reminds me of the wives that were married to the mafia dudes in Good Fellas.

  41. nanster says:

    bitterbetty, marie, and hannah – I agree 100%.

  42. TLC Producer says:

    Snooki will get her own show. It will be on TLC. I’m still working on a title but it will involve cake decorators, little people choclatiers, hideous tanning salon incidents, child beauty pagents, motorcycle builders, selection of wedding dresses, and a stupid, babbling famewhore who was challenged by a fast food chain.

    I think we may call it “Stupid American Guido Cake Chef with a Tanning Salon in New Jersey who Tosses Little People at Child Beauty Pagents.”

    Look for it on Tuesday nights.

  43. daisyfly says:

    You know how in Gremlins 2 they had that harlot Gremlin? If the Oompah Loompahs had a harlot Oompah, Snooki’d be it.

  44. Firestarter says:

    @TLC Prod.- LOLOLOLOL!

  45. damien says:

    Her beauty regime? God that is an ugly “chick”…She needs a regime change…T*rds always float on top

    I get the feeling that she won’t pull a bunch of desperate stunts like Tila Tequila.

    You mean like telling people f*ck you and going on a show and acting a ho?..Ya she wont do anything like that

  46. No woman No cry says:

    Just goes to show you that “anyone” can get their faces in the papers….even little girls that wear their Mom’s shoes out in public.

  47. Ana says:

    If it wasn’t for her getting punched in the face I would have no clue who she is.

    I was going to say something about her top lip but I kind of like that she hasn’t got injections…yet.

    I know I will probably get yelled at for saying this, but I laugh hysterically everytime I see her get punched in the face.

  48. Dallas says:

    My god I can’t believe the love for this girl, she’s trash. It doesn’t matter if she’s “real” about it,she’s still trash.

  49. prissa says:

    @ no woman no cry
    I thought I was the only 1 who noticed that!!! Those shoes are WAY too big for her!!! LOL

  50. Lita says:

    @Dallas – I was going to say the same thing! Oh so she’s “real” .. what does that even mean? The people* on Springer are real too.

    *Apologies to any ‘people’ upset by the association there. I use the word in a general sense only.

  51. Kevin says:

    Lisa, anyone who knows anything, knows Springer is anything but real. They were hiring dancers for the show and giving them scripts. That story blew out about 10 years ago, I believe. They were hiring these white trashters right here out of Tampa, sadly. I don’t know if Snookie or any of the rest of them are “real” but they are playing a different type of character that I, personally, am loving to watch and laugh at.

  52. Peach says:

    Really? She’s real? The people on the Real World wern’t even all that real. Man, does the TV have you that fooled?
    Bitch is a jester. A court jester. They’ve been around for centuries in diffrent forms.

    She’s a Tila Tequila, Kardashian, Hilton, Lohan, Winehouse knock off. A product of a culture where people will do anything to get fame. Even if it’s negative.

    Shame. I feel like if she had a real friend in the world they’d warn her…or at least caution her against looking so Elvira. Somebody needs to hug this girl and hand her some Clean and Clear.

  53. Dhavy says:

    Where can I watch her get punched? I really need a good laugh

  54. WTF?!? says:

    Never heard of her. Being another low-class mook on another MTV reality series isn’t fame, it’s a minute’s worth of notoriety. Maybe if she hooks up w/Tiger Woods she can stretch it out a bit.

  55. Kevin says:

    Dhavy, check you tube. It’s there. She takes it hard, right in the kisser.

  56. oh hey says:

    This song sums up Domino’s pizza in a nutshell.

  57. nancy says:

    wow, she is a crack up..

    glad people find it amusing

  58. Shannon says:

    I love Snooki, she keeps it real.

  59. Tammy K/ says:

    These shows are really getting ridiculous! Now “Frank the Entertainer” has a show where 15 girls are trying to live with him in his parent’s basement! Are you kidding me?

  60. juiceinla says:

    personally, I love the attitude Dominos’ rep-Tim McIntyre(?)-is putting forth. He made me laugh AND I agreed with him, ANDDDDD It made me think of buy pizza. (I amm hungry)

    Bravo Dominos, I might just buy a pie.

  61. kimberly says:

    i haven’t seen the show, I just thought that the skanky slutty chunky girl from pdiddy’s making the band dyed her hair for a hustle pictorial since she’s done playboy.

    now that i’m here:
    how does she keep it “real” and are we really saying “keeping it real” again? Wow it’s so 2002!

    Why are the shoes on this trolls feet so big? She’s suppose to be a celeb now. Can’t she afford some shoes that fit?

    Why do these chicks look like shit for a “red carpet” event?

    They really need to rename the red carpet thing, if obviously anyone can get it, it doesn’t seem that special at all.

    Once trashy chicks get in, you know that the party’s over and all that’s left are the STD’s and melted ice.

  63. kristen says:

    Id` wether watch Lauren conrad or Heidi pratt they are way more classy say what u want about heid but she dosent burn herself up and look like a clown! yes even with the plastic surgrey she dosent` look like snooki does!
