What is always interesting about late-night TV is getting the opportunity to see some different personalities collide, and this certainly happened on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” his week courtesy of “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and former Presidential nominee Newt Gingrich.
What happened here was ultimately a pretty ridiculous conversation. First, Newt congratulated the self-proclaimed “guidette” on having a pair of best-selling books, which she replied to by saying that she is trying to be like him. This conversation was made all of the funnier by the fact that Newt has never seen “Jersey Shore” once in his entire life, and he probably only has the vaguest idea of who Snooki is to begin with. She also talked about drinking one of Ronnie’s personal favorites in “Ron Ron Juice,” and Gingrich was even more clueless.
The one thing we will gave the man some credit for? Being willing to take on what was a pretty controversial subject in exotic dancers and bachelor parties — which was something that Snooki brought up when talking about her fiance Jionni LaValle. After saying that she trusts her man and that she does no want to deprive him of scantily-clad women on his bachelor party night, Gingrich had the following to say:
“I feel like, in some ways, my life has been deprived now that I’ve listened to you.”
Gingrich was actually on the show to talk about the upcoming Presidential election featuring his former rival Mitt Romney. Meanwhile, Snooki was of course trying to promote a new episode of “Snooki & JWoww” airing on MTV Thursday night.
