Snooki Of ‘Jersey Shore’ Paid $32,000 To Speak At Rutgers University

Call it the price of the pouf. Rutgers University students paid Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki from MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” $32,000 to speak to them. That’s $2,000 more than Nobel-prize winning author Toni Morrison will receive to speak there.
