Though she's one of the world's biggest reality TV stars, Snooki insists that her public image is more fictional projection than an actual reflection of her personality. So when you see her partying all day and night, drunk with her famous roommates and making memories by the half hour installment, just know that there's a different girl on the other end of that camera.
In a new interview with GQ -- what she calls her first "real" interview -- the pint sized reality star/WWE diva/pitchwoman teases a different side of Snooki, revealing the things that "Jersey Shore" doesn't put on air, and what she would show if she were in charge.
"I wouldn't show as much drinking and partying," she tells the magazine. "I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time -- which they don't show. We don't even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don't show anything but us drinking and hooking up."
"I don't know. Maybe because of the success of the show they think that if they don't show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn't stay successful, but I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it'd even change people's minds about us," she says.
Still, the show has offered her some financial opportunities that wouldn't come with a calm, happy show. She made $750,000 last year, according to The Daily Beast, and she's not being extravagant with her cash... unlike one of her co-stars.
"'Jersey Shore' is going to end soon. I'm not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He's already broke!" she claims.
That'd be impressive spending on his part -- said Situation pulled in $2.5 million in 2010.
