Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi Discussed Her Nomination on Her Podcast
On an October episode of her podcast, “It’s Happening with Snooki & Joey,” co-hosted by Joey Camasta, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi spoke about her People’s Choice Awards nomination and listed the other Reality TV Star of 2021 nominees.
“I’m up against Erica Mena from ‘Love & Hip Hop [Atlanta],’ Joe Amabile, ‘Bachelor in Paradise,’ I don’t watch that. Kandi Burruss from ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta,’ of course your Kardashians, Khloé Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, who wins every f***ing year, so I probably won’t win. Lisa Rinna from ‘[The Real Housewives of] Beverly Hills,’ love her. And then my co-star and friend, Michael ‘The Situation,’” said the mother-of-three.
She then shared how she feels about Sorrentino also being a fellow nominee.
“I literally said if me or Mike takes it, we’re literally both winning because it’s from the same family, the same program,” said the MTV personality.
Polizzi then revealed that she was upset that she “didn’t realize” that there was a category for The Pop Podcast of 2021. She suggested that she would have liked her and Camasta’s podcast to have been nominated.
“Now we need to be aware because a lot of award shows are doing podcast awards, so we need to get our f***ing a**** in there,” said the reality television star.
On October 27, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi mentioned her nomination on Instagram.
“I’d like to thank the academy of my fellow hot mess Mawma’s for this honor [glasses clinking emoji] Love yewww [folded hands emoji] #therealitytvstar #peopleschoiceawards,” read the caption of the post.
A few social media users flocked to the post’s comments section to congratulate the reality television star.
