We already know that reality TV star, workout queen, mom of two, and card and bracelet maker Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is a very busy Jersey lady. But were you aware that she also chats every week about pop culture on her Naturally Nicole podcast, alongside her pal Joey Camasta? Well, she does, and you can listen to the eight most recent episodes online at PodcastOne or listen and subscribe in iTunes. To catch up on all past episodes, you’ll have to subscribe to PodcastOne.
The officially description says the podcast features “the joys of messy motherhood to the hottest topics in pop culture with off-the-cuff commentary that most people would only dare to say in their heads” and that’s not far off the mark. Joey and Snooki have a natural rapport and the clearly unscripted podcast is pure fun. Sometimes it’s just the two of them chatting, and other times they have famous guests, such as Kendra Wilkinson of Kendra on Top, The Walking Dead star Josh McDermitt and Dorinda Medley from Real Housewives of New York City.
On a recent episode (number 102) the friends gab about everything from hangovers to Snooki’s lipstick recommendations to celebrity gossip, as they go over the latest news, on everyone from Johnny Depp to Chelsea Handler to Caitlyn Jenner to Khloe Kardashian. It’s like delving into all the latest headlines, but with two sometimes catty, always opinionated people. You can also find out which sources of celeb news Snooki trusts and which ones she hates. There’s also a hilarious moment that calls to mind Jessica Simpson’s famous Chicken of the Sea chicken or tuna query, where they debate how much money is involved in “seven figures.” If you want to feel like you’re eavesdropping on Snooki riffing on whatever comes to mind, this is the podcast for you. You should know that they do delve a little sex talk as Joey recounts a recent date, so don’t listen to this one with the kids around unless you want to have some awkward conversations.
But what OMJ readers will be especially excited about is their dish at the end about the upcoming season of Real Housewives of New Jersey. They’re as giddy about the season premiere on Bravo on July 10 as we are! Joey will even have a cameo. They’re buddies with Melissa Gorga, and float the idea of having Melissa and Teresa Giudice on the podcast, so stay tuned because you know if anyone will get the inside scoop on your favorite show, these two will.
