Snooki So Classy That Labels Don’t Feel Worthy Of Her Patronage

43857, SEASIDE HEIGHTS, NEW JERSEY - Saturday August 21 2010. Nicole Snooki Polizzi (black dress), Mike The Situation Sorrentino (green t-shirt) and Deena Nicole Cortese (denim shorts) take advantage of another sunny day on the Jersey Shore and head to the amusements. First the happy trio hit the bumper cars, but wanting more of an adrenaline rush, they then headed to the massive slide. All three went down the chute a few times, with Mike showing off his famous abs (which were looking a little soft, maybe?) and his unusually bendy fingers as he descended the slide! Deena didn't look too happy, however, coming down with a look of terror on her face and crashing into her co-stars as she hit the bottom! The newest member of the cast, Deena then had to seek medical attention for a scraped knee! After that attraction, Snooki freshened herself up with a napkin and a cigarette before spotting a musclebound hunk to have a quick flirt with. The group then moved onto more dodgem cars (persued by a nervous looking film crew) before Snooki and Mike walked hand-in-hand to the trampolines. The SItuation showed off his athletic prowess performing a few backflips for the girls before he, too, was injured and had to get a napkin to stem bleeding from behind his ear! The excitement over for another day, the crew all strolled back to their house, with Mike lovingly spoon feeding Snooki an ice cream as a seemingly unimpressed Deena strode on ahead. Could it be there is some romance in the air between two of the small screen's favourite reality stars?? Photograph:  Wagner Az, PacificCoastNews.com

So you know how people are jumping on the Jersey Shore bandwagon, trying to strike before the iron has cooled from a rigorous bout of L, post-GT? Apparently, not everyone is so happy to be associated with MTV’s merry band of skanksters, and are engaging in what can only be called “un-branding.”

Snooki’s Coach purse was ubiquitous in the first season but has been replaced by a Gucci bag; an upgrade due to her newfound fame and wealth? For sure, but that bag didn’t come from anyone at Gucci. Simon Doonan, the creative director of Barney’s New York and pop-culture commentator, has spilled the beans on the desperate measures to which labels are resorting in order to maintain their images:

Allegedly, the anxious folks at these various luxury houses are all aggressively gifting our gal Snookums with free bags. No surprise, right? But here’s the shocker: They are not sending her their own bags. They are sending her each other’s bags! Competitors’ bags!

Basically, people are sending Snooks all sorts of free stuff that they don’t make in the hopes of enticing her into embarrassing a competitor with her implicit endorsement. Just, please, no one send her a Birkin bag; she’d fall in, and all that spray-tan can’t be good for hand-stitched leather.
