She really would like people to stop calling her Snooki.
"I miss people calling me by my real name," she says. "All I've been hearing is Snooki, so now when people call me Nicole, it's like, "Yes, that is my name.'" She takes a drag on her cigarette, lets out a drifting plume of smoke. "I mean, it's worth it," she goes on. "Look where I am now. Opportunities like my own clothing line and my book, which I would never get if I was just a normal person. I bought my mom a new BMW, I'm trying to buy my dad a truck. I got myself a BMW to replace my crappy Honda. My grandma was 10 deep in debt, and I paid that off. What's going on now makes up for those two months of torture. I had no idea where I was going in life. Now I'm sure where I'm going to end up. One day, I'll be able to say, 'Grandma was famous at one point, famous for her hair and partying at the Jersey Shore.'"
Now who could have a problem with that?
