'Snooki' Polizzi aims to cut down on drinking, lose weight
Nicole Polizzi, aka Snooki from MTV reality show "Jersey Shore," says her New Year's resolution is to cut down on her drinking so she can continue losing weight.
The 23-year-old made her comments to E! News ahead of Tuesday's release of her new novel, "A Shore Thing," which tells of two girls who rent a house on the Jersey Shore for the summer and get into all kinds of hijinks involving guys and alcohol - much like the cast members of "Jersey Shore."
When asked about her New Year's resolutions, Polizzi said: "My number one is definitely to keep up with my training and keep losing weight and getting toned. I feel my legs getting toned again. I try to eat healthy. I just have to quit the drinking so much. If I do drink, it's going to be like vodka and seltzer. Maybe like two or three."
She said that she has lost five pounds in the past month and works out with a trainer.
The series often depicts the drunken antics of its cast members and Polizzi, who is 4'9" and is known for her bright, skimpy outfits and loud voice, was charged in September for interfering with "the public's right to find enjoyment" while acting drunk on a beach during a "Jersey Shore" shoot.
Polizzi pleaded guilty, was fined about $500 and was ordered by a judge, who called her a "Lindsay Lohan wannabe", to serve one day of community service.
