Snooki’s New Boyfriend Calls Her a Drunk

The new man in Snooki’s life sure has a way with backhanded compliments.

Jeff Miranda, who was spotted swapping spit with the Jersey Shore enchantress earlier this week, has opened up to Us Magazine about his blossoming relationship with the reality TV charmer (real name: Nicole Polizzi). And according to the 24-year-old Iraq war vet, his latest flame is a real catch. In fact, it doesn’t even bother him that she’s generally sloshed when he sees her:

“We hit it off really, really good. Nicole is actually really cute and seems like a cool-a** person, even though she’s drunk most of the time. She’s a real sweet girl.”

A match made in heaven? Perhaps—though Miranda does note that their budding romance has already hit one snag:

“She got mad at me because of my tongue ring. It reminded her of [her ex-boyfriend] Emilio [Masella]. I took it out of my tongue and threw it out into the beach. I took it right out for her.”

Perhaps he should have told Snickers that the ring can double as a bottle opener in a pinch. Surely that would have made her more approving of the jewelry.
