Who ever said diet pills would make you lose weight? Not Snooki.

After being hit with a lawsuit in 2013 by a Long Island woman who claims she was snookered (get it?) when the Jersey Shore star bragged about losing weight on the diet pill Zantrex, the pint-sized mom has fought back with a motion to have the lawsuit dismissed, is exclusively reporting.

EXCLUSIVE DOCUMENTS: Snooki Claims She's Never Made Promises Of Weight Loss

In court documents filed on Aug. 14, Snooki — real name Nicole Polizzi — says she never promised anyone who purchased the product that they would lose weight and states "there is no law which supports the proposition that a mere endorser such as Ms. Polizzi is liable for statements made by a product's advertiser."

Snooki, 26, claims she merely endorsed the product from her own personal results, she doesn't own a portion of the company or have any stake in the business.

Celebrity Justice

"Instead, Plaintiff attempts to hold Ms. Polizzi liable for statements that the advertiser — and not Ms. Polizzi — made about the product," the court documents read.

"While endorsers clearly may face liability for their own false statements, they are not liable for statement made by advertisers."

The 4'8" reality TV star is demanding she be dismissed from the lawsuit, with no award for the plaintiff.
