Snooki, The Brand: Jersey Shore star strikes licensing deal
For her: We give her a lot of credit for keeping an open mind and trying to play nice with Sammi. And she lived up to her self-assigned moniker "blast in glass" when she gives the Situation a free show of her lady parts when she "accidentally" pulls down her bikini bottom. Whoops!
Against her: Granted, she was beyond trashed, but she was still a bit mouthy for a newbie. But Deena's worst offense of the night was offering to share her vibrator with J-Woww and Snooki. Really?
