Upon first glance MTV reality star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi doesn't seem like she has much in common with former presidential hopeful Newt Gingrich, but that thought was debunked during a recent interview with Jay Leno.
Both Snooki and Gringrich were guests on Jay's late night show, where they seemed to bond over her best-selling books and...strippers. When Gingrich congratulated Snooki on the success of her books, she responded by saying, "I'm trying to be like you."
When the conversation turned to her upcoming nuptials to her fiance, Jionni Lavalle, she asked Gingrich if he went "crazy with strippers" for his bachelor party. The question led to uncontrollable laughter from Newt, but he revealed that his wife Calista had not allowed him to have strippers at his party, because “she was already crazy enough for marrying me.”
This isn't the first time Snooki has bonded with a buttoned up politician, as she revealed that she and Sen. John McCain forged a friendship via Twitter after sharing a common interest in opposing President Obama's "tanning tax."
