Newt Gingrich, Snooki Talk Strippers And Bestsellers On 'The Tonight Show' (VIDEO)

Sometimes the stars align just right and everything comes together like magic. Other times life seems completely random. It was probably more of the latter when Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Newt Gingrich wound up sitting side by side on "The Tonight Show" (Weeknights, 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC).

Gingrich seemed positively enamored by Snooki, or maybe he was just trying to figure her out. Either way, he was hovering dangerously close to her from the secondary couch as she was talking to Jay Leno. New York Magazine said it was "unsettling the way [he] studies her and leans into her conversation with Leno."

When Snooki said her achievement of having two New York Times bestselling books was because she was trying to be like Gingrich, he leaned back with roars of laughter. The chemistry between the two must have been palpable, because Leno suggested that perhaps Gingrich could guest star on "Snooki & JWoww."

Or maybe just call it the new "Three's Company!"

Snooki can be seen Thursdays at 10 p.m. ET on MTV's "Snooki & JWoww." "The Tonight Show" airs weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET on NBC.
