Chris Christie got no love for Snooki.
Chris Christie Clashes With Jersey Shore Cast
According to Mail Online
It was supposed to be a day about celebrating the Jersey Shore coming back together after the devastating impact of Superstorm Sandy.
However, while the buildings and boardwalk of Seaside Heights can be repaired, it seems the relationship between New Jersey’s governor and the area’s most famous celebrities – the cast of MTV’s The Jersey Shore – cannot.
The smallest member of the reality cast Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi went head to head with Governor Chris Christie on Friday at the reopening of the Seaside Heights’ boardwalk, which featured heavily in the reality series.
The pair had just filmed separate segments on the Today show when backstage the 25-year-old stopped the Governor to address why he has been critical about the show’s influence on the area in the past.
The incident was caught on tape by Asbury Park Press and it was clear things were frosty between the pair.
While not heard on the video, according to Snooki the politician had made his feelings clear.
‘Getting told why we are bad for jersey. Amazing,’ the star tweeted.
In the video, Nicole can be heard asking the much larger man to step back from her as they talk.
‘Why are you standing so close to me,’ the mother of one asks.
Leaning comically even closer to Nicole, Christie says: ‘You asked for my opinion.’
Trying to subdue the situation cast mate Deena Cortese, flanked by Jennifer ‘JWoww’ Farley, tells the politician she is from Jersey.
‘I know you are, I was talking about her,’ the governor curtly replies.
Still trying to calm things down Denna said: ‘And guess what? I thought you did a good job with the hurricane.’
With the situation not getting any better, Snooki explains: ‘I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.’
His response isn’t audible, but as he shakes the girls’ hands as he walks away it is clear neither party is a big fan of the other.
‘He doesn’t just like us,’ Nicole then tells the cameraman.
Nobody likes you. You are only famous because of America’s appetite for bulls***.
