Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's attempts to stretch her 15 minutes of fame were declared a big hit on HSN when half of her new product line sold out during a two-hour appearance. Known for her big hair, tanning and foul language on the MTV reality show, Pilozzi's fragrances, pink and black animal print handbags and plush crocodilly all sold well, the network said. Polizzi also scored a viral marketing coup when she agreed to play herself on a satire of a dreamlike Calvin Klein Obsession TV spot produced by the comedy website Be Funny or Die. In it she showed off her taste in perfume while chewing on a pickle, then swiped and swigged from a bottle of champagne. "It's a real fragrance," she summed up at the end.
