A tamer, less party-prone Snooki?? That's the effect her new man's having on her, the "Jersey Shore" star and now author says.
"I think I'm definitely more tame now, like I don't go out and drink like I used to, but I can still have fun," Snooki tells ET about the influence of her new boyfriend, who she says she met on the new season of "Jersey Shore."
But the bronzed Boardwalk babe has more on her plate than a new man and a new season of her hit reality series, which kicks off Thursday at 10 p.m. on MTV. Snooki is now an author, with her novel A Shore Thing in stores now.
"There's two main girl characters, Gia and Isabella, and I wanted to do something where it's kind of like me and Jenni, like how our relationship is," she says of the fictional storyline.
So, what's Snooki's all-time favorite thing to read? The Twilight series, she says. Watch our video for more, including the dish on Snooki's New Year's Eve ball drop and why she admires the Kardashians.
