See our exclusive photos of Snooki & her boyfriend Emilio partying with Hollywood Life’s Lindsey DiMattina!
Snooki, 22, may have been sharing hot tub time with “The Situation” during this week’s Jersey Shore season finale, but HollywoodLife.com saw her with a new man on her arm (pictured above with Snooki and Hollywood Life’s Lindsey DiMattina) on Jan. 22 at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods Casino & Resort in Mashantucket, Conn. His name is Emilio, he’s a little taller at 5′ 6 than Snooki at 4′ 9 and he treats her like a princess! While partying at the casino club Shrine, Emilio doted on Snooki and her dad, making sure they each had drinks in their hands. And he even waited until Snooki’s dad left them alone before he started drinking himself. Such a gentleman!
Snooki’s dad seems to be A-OK with his daughter’s new Jersey Shore lifestyle. “Everybody likes to call her Snooki,” he tells us, “so that’s what I go with.” And get this — an insider tells us Snooki’s original request for the evening was to have her table surrounded by “hot guys,” but when she realized Emilio was going to be there, she changed her mind. Instead, she had a bottle of wine ordered to her hotel room, which she and Emilio shared before heading down to the party.
“How did you find out about that? We’re just friends,” Snooki responded coyly to us when we asked about her new man. Gee, Snooki, you totally looked like a couple! Are you just trying to keep this on the down-low because you’re still trying to get your own dating show, Snookin’ For Love?
It’s nice to see the Snooki gossip isn’t over just because the season came to a close. And speaking of the season ending, did you know the big Jan. 21 finale was watched by 4.8 million people? That’s three times as many viewers as the show’s season premiere from Dec. 2009! Here’s hoping MTV gets the original cast back for another season — America can’t get enough of them!
