Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi claims longtime “View” co-host Joy Behar was the “rudest celebrity” she’s met since rising to fame on “Jersey Shore” over the last 14 years.
“Joy Behar!” the reality star screamed after Andy Cohen asked the shady question on Thursday’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live.”
The Bravo host appeared shocked and again asked Polizzi if Behar was “rude” to her.“Joy was so mean to me,” the MTV star quickly replied.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi slammed Joy Behar as the “rudest celebrity” she’s met since rising to fame on “Jersey Shore.”I said, ‘OK, ma’am,’” Polizzi responded.Behar’s rep didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
During a 2010 episode of “The View,” Behar, now 80, fessed up to telling someone from the cast that they are “not even Italian,” but didn’t specify to whom she said that or when she made the dis
“Let me tell you something about those kids, OK. I grew up with kids who were just like that,” she said at the time. “When I was a kid, there were a lot of kids like that around me, OK – they’re all in jail now.”
The comedian then added that people are “laughing at them, not with them.”The following year, Polizzi clapped back at Behar when she made a viral video pretending to be the host and mocking her — which she later claimed was a joke.
The “Snooki & JWOWW” alum later apologized for the video on “The Wendy Williams Show” and admitted that she felt “bad about it.”Behar watched the apology on an episode of “The View” a few days later and thanked the reality TV star for it.
“I don’t care if they make fun of me. It’s fine. I enjoyed that sketch that they did,” the “Joy Schtick” author said in January 2011. “I thought it was very funny.”
Despite the years of back-and-forth, Polizzi and the rest of her “Jersey Shore Family Vacation” cast appeared on Tuesday’s episode of “The View.” Behar was not present for the interview.
However, Polizzi appeared to have a fan in “View” co-host Whoopi Goldberg, who gushed over how “proud” of the entire cast she was.
“When they first came [to ‘The View’], they were getting a lot of heat from people, and I was so glad to see them, because they were fresh, and they were just ready to do stuff, and I said to them, ‘Listen. They’re gonna come for you. You just gotta stay strong, no matter what.’”Goldberg, 67, then raved that she’s “just so proud of y’all,” because they didn’t let other people “define” them.
Aside from Behar, Ryan Reynolds was also named one of the “rudest” celebrities that some of the “Jersey Shore” alums have encountered.Polizzi’s co-star Deena Cortese told Andy Cohen that the “Deadpool” star was “not great” to them.
