"I think she’s going to take over the world. Everybody has been really underestimating her. But she has so many ideas in that bouffant of hers, you don’t know what’s going on in that poof. She could be hiding a world of genius writing."
In fact, Polizzi, 22, is set to release a work of fiction, "A Shore Thing," in January. Richie, who has also authored two novels, knows just how to market it.
"Snooki is so captivating on television, I think it’d be great if she did a video of herself reading her book," she explains.
"That’s what people want to see. You could read the book if you want, or just watch a video of her reading it to you."
We love Nicole Richie - she's great at marketing her own brand, but who the hell wants to watch Snooki read a book?!
