MTV, "The Jersey Shore's" housemate Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi turned 23 at her birthday bash sponsored by LifeStyles Condoms at Pacha in New York City this past Saturday. This "Princess of Poughkeepsie" lived up to her title with her glamorous multi-colored tiara and white cocktail dress fully decked in sparkles and feathers.
Although Snooki was not rocking her usual "Jersey" hair, an imitation Snooki stood on top of her four-tier cake representing her iconic poof right from "The Cake Boss" himself. The cake was a party in itself with animal prints, gold glitter, and Lifestyles condoms lining the bottom. It was a confectionery treat promoting safe "smushing," but the only thing the cake was missing was this reality-star's favorite snack: pickles.Our Celebrity Magnet Tom Murro and his wife Kelly, Mrs. New Jersey Claire Pavlinec, "The Real Housewives of New Jersey's" Kim Granatell, along with MTV's Adam Barta and Kim's good friend John, grabbed their VIP wristbands and headed through the roped-off area to prepare for a night of "beating the beat."
The entire event was reminiscent of a typical Jersey Shore club scene. Snooki tearing up the dance floor, condoms available at every table, and tanned, juiced "gorillas" with well-trimmed eyebrows and white blazers "creeping" on all the ladies. Mrs. New Jersey avoided some fine-tuned pickup lines from several club-goers; however, they frolicked away as soon as they noticed the "Mrs" in front of New Jersey.
Snooki's down-to-earth father, Andy Polizzi, spoke to Murro inside the club, where he discussed his love and pride for his daughter's accomplishments and strengths. He also divulged to Murro what he will be giving the self-proclaimed "guidette" for her 23rd birthday. Although she might not get it until next week, Murro confirms that she will absolutely love it.
All Snooki wanted this year was to celebrate with her family and friends, which is exactly what she got to do. She also got an added bonus when Sean Kingston performed at her birthday extravaganza to a packed house. After Kingston performed "Fire Burning," and many of his other hits, the night wound down. The crowds left at three a.m. and Murro got a goodbye kiss from Snooki. Fist Pump to that!
