The web is abuzz with news that Nicole Polizzi -- better known as Snooki on MTV's "Jersey Shore" -- may be buying a home on Long Island. Residents say they've heard she's purchasing property on Lucinda Drive in Babylon. But a representative for Polizzi denies the rumor. "There's nothing I know of," says Scott Talarico, Polizzi's manager.
Realtor Mary Adams says she believes that high school students circulated the story about the hard-partying reality TV star, whose signature hair style is "The Poof." "Everybody's kind of upset about the whole thing," says Adams of Century 21 American Homes. "Not that you'd want to say you cannot live here, but come on."
Several homes are for sale on Lucinda, including a waterfront house being listed by Jim Netter of Netter Real Estate. He says the sellers deny that Polizzi is interested in their house. "It has been very trying for them," Netter says, adding, "The neighbors are up in arms about this."
They should have known better. The luxurious $1.89 million house on Carlls River with a beach seems to be missing something Polizzi would surely want -- a hot tub.
