Snooki Is an Author?

Cary Fagan

snookiThe Jersey Shore star not only can read (as we recently discovered) but apparently she can write to boot! According to Gallery Books, Snooki has a novel scheduled to hit bookstores in January: Shore Thing. (Get it? Shore thing/sure thing? Good. I thought you would.)

Apparently the plot will center on amour, boardwalk-style. Gallery provided this sneak preview of the book's content:

"Big hair, dark tans, and fights galore."

Nice. Snooks claims that she's been toiling for a while on the tome, and the publisher reports that she will have a ghost writer collaborator.

Hmmm. Gym. Tanning. Laundry. Sorry, but those are the only words that I'm confident our favorite housemate can actually put to paper. So, um ... no. I don't believe for one second that she's writing it at all.

But hey, give the girl a break. She's not the only celebrity to have their name suspiciously listed as an author. While many claim to be the sole scribes of their books, I have my reservations. Here are just a handful of celeb authors that I don't believe wrote their bestsellers alone:

Lauren Conrad L.A. Candy

Britney Spears' Heart to Heart. (Spears supposedly co-authored this with her mom, Lynne. Uh-huh.)

Nicole Richie The Truth About Diamonds

Miley Cyrus Miles to Go

Danielle Staub The Naked Truth: The Real Story Behind the Real Housewife of New Jersey -- In Her Own Words

Tori Spelling uncharted terriTORI

David Archuleta Chords of Strength: A Memoir of Soul, Song, and the Power of Perseverance

Nope. Don't believe any of them wrote their books alone. Uh-uh. Not one bit.

What do you think? Am I being too harsh? Do you think Snooki is capable of penning a novel?
