It pays to be Snooki --- to the tune of $11K. That's what the Jersey Shore star was paid to appear at a tanning salon opening, RadarOnline.com has learned.
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi was front and center promoting Sizzle Tans in Totowa, NJ Friday night.
The beehive queen and boyfriend Jionni LaValle were seen partying hard at the salon's opening. Jersey's drama girl sported a black dress with a lion print belt, sexy boots and topped it off with a Santa hat!
Snooki was also snapped kissing LaValle on the red carpet and inside a tanning bed!
Seems like the girl had a good night and made a little change too.
