The cast of “Jersey Shore” might be proud self-described guidos and guidettes – but not all of them are full Italian – and Jenni “J-WOWW” Farley isn’t even Italian at all.
“I’m not even Italian!” the MTV star told Fox News’ “The Strategy Room” on Tuesday.
J-WOWW, who said she is a mixture of Spanish and Irish decent, said fellow stars Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Ronnie Magro are not full-blooded Italian either.
“Nicole isn’t and Ron’s not full Italian either,” she continued in the interview. “[Snooki] is Chilean… Ronnie is half Spanish and half Italian.
In an interview with OK! Magazine in December, Snooki referred to herself as “half Spanish” and said she was adopted.
According to J-WOWW, living the guido/guidette life isn’t dependent on your heritage.
“It’s a lifestyle and the scene that we’re in…it’s not like Italian,” she said.
Regardless of their less-than-full Italian heritage, the cast will be back in action this summer on MTV for a second season of their hit show.
