Snooki Is an Author?

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?
