Here's the situation: Nicole Polizzi, better known to the world as Snooki from the MTV show "Jersey Shore," faces charges of being criminally annoying.
But unlike the popular reality show, her scheduled court appearance Wednesday will be 100 percent real. She faces disorderly conduct charges of being a public nuisance and annoying others on the Seaside Heights beach in late July.
Polizzi's attorney has entered not guilty pleas on her behalf.
"Jersey Shore" chronicles the carryings-on of a group of hard-partying, 20-something Italian-Americans at a beach house on the Seaside Heights boardwalk.
It has offended Italian-American groups but remains one of MTV's highest-rated shows. The reality show is on its third season.
