Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, Gov. Chris Christie

Two of New Jersey's finest appear to still be at odds — even when they're coming together for a good cause.

While filming Superstorm Sandy segments Friday for Today on location in Seaside Heights, N.J., Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Gov. Chris Christie met backstage, along with Snooki's Snooki & JWoww costar Jenni Farley. And we have their awkward exchange on video!

In the video, Polizzi appears visibly tense. Gov. Christie says with a smile that he gave his opinion about something — presumably his prior disapproval of their MTV reality show Jersey Shore, which ended in 2012. Polizzi extends her hand and says, "I just wanted to meet you, and just, I hope you start to like us."
