Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley have only been famous for two-and-a-half years. But in the world of reality TV, that’s practically a lifetime. Now, after six seasons of MTV’s Jersey Shore, Snooki and JWoww are stepping front-and-center as the stars of their own spinoff show.
Snooki & JWOWW, which premieres tonight on MTV, follows the two self-described “BFF’s” as they move into an apartment together in Jersey City. There was one slight hiccup, however: early in the shooting process, Polizzi revealed to Farley that she’s not only engaged to her longtime boyfriend, Jionni LaValle, she’s also pregnant. “He’ll probably dress like Pauly D,” Polizzi says of her unborn son.
Rolling Stone rang up Snooki and JWoww for a classic game of “would you rather,” inviting the reality stars to spill their preferences on everything from Jersey City versus the Jersey Shore to whether they’d rather “get it in” or party with friends.
Hi, ladies. Down for an old-fashioned game of “would you rather?”
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi: Fun!
Jenni “JWoww” Farley: Let’s do it!
OK. We’ll start with a simple one. Would you rather go to the gym or get a tan?
JWoww: Gym. Obviously, you’ve gotta be in shape or it’s pointless to be tan. They really go hand in hand together. I feel like being in shape and feeling healthy is most important.
Snooki: Yeah, being in shape I think is better than being tan.
Would you rather live on the Jersey Shore or in your new home for this show, Jersey City?
JWoww: Jersey Shore, because that’s where it all began. We wouldn’t have Jersey City without the Shore.
Would you rather be lounging around in slippers or rocking out in stilettos?
Snooki: Stilettos. I love my heels! And I’m a short person, so I like to be at least five foot.
JWoww: I’m the opposite.
Here’s a throwback. Would you rather listen to ‘NSync or Backstreet Boys?
Snooki: ‘NSync. I hate Backstreet Boys because I love ‘NSync. I was like a Justin Bieber fan to ‘NSync. I love Lance Bass.
It’s late at night and the TV is on. Would you rather watch Leno or Letterman?
Snooki: Yeah, I like both but I don’t know. Jimmy Kimmel is pretty hot.
JWoww: I love Craig Ferguson’s accent. He’s hot in a weird way.
Who would you rather see win the presidential election, Barack Obama or Mitt Romney?
Snooki: Obama, ’cause he’s our president.
JWoww, would you rather be helping out pregnant Snooki or protecting drunk-off-her-ass Snooki?
JWoww: Pregnant all the way. She was easy breezy.
Snooki: I was hilarious, but just grumpy.
Snooki, would you rather be with drunk, party-girl JWoww or sober, maternal JWoww?
Snooki: I enjoy both. When Jenni is drunk, she’s fun and she’s crazy and she makes me crack up. When Jenni is sober, she’s like a sister and I can talk to her about anything. So I would say both.
Would you rather meet Lady Gaga or Madonna?
JWoww: Lady Gaga.
Snooki: I love Madonna’s old music, but I love Gaga’s style.
JWoww: [To Snooki] You cried when you saw Lady Gaga.
Snooki: ‘Cause her style is amazing. Madonna is more like her mom.
Let’s end with a tough one. Would you rather have a guaranteed amazing “smush” or a solid night partying with friends?
Snooki: I always have a good smush. So, friends.
JWoww: Good night partying with friends, because I can get it in whenever I want.
