Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi surprised the literary community when her first novel, A Shore Thing, became a best-seller in early 2011.
"This is all in the span of one year, which is incredible to me because it takes J.K. Rowling three years to write one book," a skeptical Jimmy Kimmel said on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Tuesday.
"I don't know who that is, but I'm here," Polizzi said.
Kimmel, 43, later joked that Polizzi used the word "friggin'" 74 times in Confessions of a Guidette, breaking a record set by Dr. Maya Angelou.
"I don't know who that is," the party girl admitted. "I don't know who anybody is!"
Polizzi isn't the only Jersey Shore personality to add "author" to her resume: Jenni "JWoww" Farley released The Rules According to JWoww in February 2011, and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino co-wrote Here's the Situation: A Guide to Creeping on Chicks, Avoiding Grenades and Getting in Your GTL on the Jersey Shore in November 2010.
