Snooki tells David Letterman she doesn't have a drinking 'problem'

Snooki is a laid-back girl, not the "drunken meatball" you think she is, according to the story she told David Letterman on Thursday night.

Oh, how she's been misunderstood.

The self-proclaimed "guidette" shot to fame because of MTV's "Jersey Shore" and stopped by "The Late Show" for the second time this year to plug ... well, herself, as our sister blog Show Tracker reports.

Snooks, whose real name is Nicole Polizzi, sat through a series of awkward questions wearing what we can only assume are battery-operated light-up stilettos. Speaking of unusual footwear, Letterman donned her Snooki slippers, which the 23-year-old will use to promote her brand in her "Shore" afterlife. But we digress....

Letterman took jabs at the show, which has already aired several episodes of its third season, including Snooki getting arrested on the beach for being drunk in public and a nuisance. So, the prickly host asked her whether she had a drinking problem.Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi with her book 'A Shore Thing'

"Do you think, uh, um, maybe you need to abstain?" Letterman asked. 

"I definitely don't think I have a problem. I mean, when we're not filming I hardly go out. I hardly drink. It's just, you know, it's summer. It's time to enjoy yourself," she said.

"People don't understand who I really am ... they see me as this party animal or whatever. I'm not like that all the time... I'm just a laid-back girl that'd rather stay in and watch movies at night than go to a ... club."

So, Letterman asked why the other impression?

"Well, you're at the shore, obviously you want to go out," she said.

We wonder if her new book "A Shore Thing" has the same air of confusion. The book has become an extended New York Times bestseller. We don't know how or why. But if you still haven't bought it, here are 10 reasons why you should (or shouldn't).

Snooki Polizzi's New Year's Eve ball drop booted to Jersey

Snooki Polizzi will drop in this ball on New Year's Eve in Seaside Heights, New Jersey

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, she of "Jersey Shore" and disorderly-on-the-beach fame, will be shoved into a ball and dropped at the stroke of midnight in New Jersey, not New York's Times Square, as MTV had originally planned.

Seems begging forgiveness wasn't going to work -- seems you have to ask permission, and when the network did, Snooki was kicked out, a source told PopEater.

"At midnight, the crowd and the media will be watching Mayor Bloomberg, Dick Clark and the official ball drop, not a cast member of the 'Jersey Shore,'" the insider said.

"We love our Times Square home, and while we're disappointed there won't be a Snooki ball-drop there, she cannot be denied!" MTV said in a statement. "So we're taking a road trip to the place where it all began, Seaside Heights, and droppin' it all there."

Snooki will be dropped in a ball on New Year's Eve in Times Square

Snooki New Year's Eve plans MTV has announced it will put Snooki in a ball and drop her from on high on New Year's Eve in Times Square as a highlight of its 2010 "MTV New Year's Bash."

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi will be joined by "Jersey Shore" compadres Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Paul "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, and the evening will -- despite a ban on public drinking at the gathering -- include an attempt to set a Guinness World Record in, um, group fist pumping.

MTV refers to "a ball" that will drop in Times Square, but doesn't narrow it down to the ball -- the one now made of illuminated Waterford Crystal, with a diameter of 12 feet, that has been dropping in one form or another for more than 100 years. Maybe they'll just cram her into this little one. Or she could buy two, and wear them as earrings.

Letting our imagination go wild, we couldn't help but recall a recent "CSI" rerun in which the killer turns out to be a bird of prey that dropped a small tortoise from the air, hoping to crack it open on the head of an ascetic it believes to be a rock.

Bald guys in Times Square, please make sure your New Year's Eve getup includes a hat.

When you party like the "Jersey Shore" crew does, you can never have too much protection. Luckily cast member Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi found a brand partner who came equipped: The MTV reality star had LifeStyles condoms sponsor her 23rd birthday at New York club Pacha on Saturday.

Which isn't to say that playing it safe was anything but dull: There was a stripper pole at the club and partygoers got not only condoms but also, um, other adult accessories.

Celeb Halloween: Snooki gets pickled, Kate Hudson stays home

Snooki dressed as a pickle for Halloween Celebs of all kinds suited up for Halloween parties around the country -- Hollywood style.

Starting in Los Angeles on Saturday, actress Kate Hudson hosted her annual house party -- where she welcomed Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. Rocker Madden dressed as a gynecologist and Richie as Gwyneth Paltrow's character Margot Tenenbaum from "The Royal Tenenbaums." 

Other attendees at the Hudson bash included Amanda Seyfried, Adam Sandler, Gwen Stefani, Rachel Zoe, and Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow.

At Hollywood Forever cemetery, Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 hosted a bash with Kirsten Dunst (as a flower child), Seth MacFarlane, Rose McGowan and Mischa Barton. The crowd sipped Bacardi cocktails and took in getups from the likes of Sophia Bush and boyfriend Austin Nichols, who dressed as newlyweds Katy Perry and Russell Brand

Nearly 300 miles away, Sin City was treated to bashes from Snooki and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino from MTV's  "Jersey Shore." Snooki, dressed in a custom-made pickle costume (a nod to her favorite snack), reigned at Jet nightclub on Saturday. The Situation had hosted at the same venue the evening before, forgoing a costume but sticking close to an army of sexy zombies rocking Snooki's signature bump.

At Tao Asian Bistro, Ryan Kwanten of "True Blood" hosted Veuve Cliquot's annual Yelloween, in a gangster-inspired costume, while Audrina Patridge did a sexy take on Victorian garb at the Bellagio ...

'South Park' calls the Snooki phenomenon as they see it

Nicole Snooki Polizzi arrested in New Jersey

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was skewered on the "It's a Jersey Thing" episode of "South Park" that aired Wednesday night -- and apparently the "Jersey Shore" star liked it.

A snippet from the show that winds up in a showdown to stop the spread of Jersey, with an army of stereotypical New Jersey zombies:

"What is it?

"It's called a Snooki. It's very famous."

"That thing is famous? Why?"

"I don't know!"

So, yeah, Snooki liked being portrayed as a skeezily dressed, sexually aggressive Gollum with a pouf, desperately clutching a fruity cocktail, tweeting after the show aired, "Snooki want smoosh smoosh. im going to have nightmares tonight lmao!!! we've officially made it." That "smoosh smoosh" is a
