Late Night: Deena says Snooki will be a 'great mom'
Earlier this week, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, the diminutive star of MTV's "Jersey Shore," confirmed to US Weekly that she and her fiancé/favorite gorilla juicehead, Jionni LaValle, are expecting a child. The announcement ended weeks of speculation but has also raised plenty of other questions: Namely, how will someone famous for spectacular bouts of daytime drunkenness take to parenting?
On Thursday's "Watch What Happens Live," host Andy Cohen asked Snooki's "Jersey Shore" costar and good friend, Deena Cortese, whether she was surprised to hear the big news.
"I was surprised because that's, like, my little meatball, you know?" Cortese said. "But I'm really happy for her, I really am. And she's going to be a great mom."
Coretese continued, "Even though we all party and stuff, she's very genuine, she's very good-hearted, and I can actually see her as, like, you know, a mother figure."
Cohen was not convinced. "As 'you know, a mother figure'? OK ..." he responded, barely able to contain his cynicism.
So who's right, Cohen or Cortese? Could Snooki surprise us all and become a Supermom? Stranger things have happened ... we guess.
Watch the video, which contains some mature themes and language -- it does involve Snooki, after all -- here.
