Snooki has released another new book, Gorilla Beach, that has made the New York Times bestseller list. This marks the 2nd installment in Snooki’s writing career, and to celebrate, she hit up The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to promote her new book. Newt Gingrich was also in attendance, and it looks as though Newt and the Jersey Shore party queen hit it off! Keep reading for the details!
Snooki has long been publicized for her hard partying ways, and wasn’t shy to talk to Newt about non-political matters on the set of The Tonight Show. Before the duo hit the stage, Newt tweeted about meeting the tanned mama, “I will be on leno wednesday night with Snooki! It should be an interesting evening! I hope she likes zoos and animals!” He deleted that tweet after he got quite a few comments on the creep factor, and replaced it with, “On the way to snooki and jay! Callista and I both look forward to what should be a fascinating show. Tonight show is always a class act.” Snooki tweeted shortly before appearing, “Chillen w Newt!”
Once Snooki and Newt were on-stage, Newt congratulated her on her book’s success. He goes on to admit, however, that he’s never seen a full episode of The Jersey Shore or Snooki & JWOWW, but has watched interviews. Snooki shoots back, “Thanks, I’m trying to be like you.”
She goes on to make things a little hot under the collar, when she confesses she’s letting her fiance have strippers at his bachelor party. Snooki follows up by asking Newt if he had strippers at his bachelor party, and Newt says,”No, she was already saying she was crazy for saying she’d marry me. She figured that was enough for one round.”
The pair seemed to hit it off, and reportedly, Newt sent Snooki & Jionni a gift for their new child: A stuffed elephant!
