Snooki Writing Second Book

This may surprise you, but CNN’s Anderson Cooper has added himself — That’s right, himself… — to AC360’s “Ridiculist.” And you’ll never guess why.

It turns out Anderson (along with the rest of modern civilization…) was wrong when he expressed utter shock at the fact that not only can Jersey Shorer Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi actually read, but that the pint-sized reality personality had nabbed a deal to pen a novel. Despite Anderson’s doubts, it turns out Snooki’s literary appeal is almost as strong as her penchant for downing shots of Tequila and terrorizing vacationers in the Garden State.

She signed her second book deal on Tuesday.

When she’s not hamming it up on the set of the fifth season of Jersey Shore, Snook’s putting the finishing touches on Gorilla Beach, the follow-up to her debut work, A Shore Thing.

Did we mention that that book was a New York Times Bestseller?

The new tome catches up with poofed-up guidettes Giovanna ‘Gia’ Spumanti and her cousin Isabella ‘Bella’ Rizzoli, who are about to embark on “the sexiest summer ever.'”
