What Is Snooki’s Fiance Jionni LaValle’s Job … And Does It Pay the Bills?
Recently, we were shocked to discover what JWOWW’s gorilla groom-to-be Roger Mathews did for a living (find out here). But what about Roger’s little buddy, Jionni LaValle? We know Jionni likes to spend time with his family and kicking Roger in the head, but how does Snooki’s future husband make a living?
Back in November 2011, we reported on NJ Fatman, Jionni’s t-shirt company featuring white and black men’s and women’s shirts with the phrase “Give me a scotch, I’m starving” on them. Since then, NJ Fatman has added two new t-shirt styles. One is a black shirt with “Cugini” written in blue (“cugini” is Italian for “cousins”), and the others are black and white versions of Cugini t-shirts with “No Regrets” emblazoned across the chest in script.
The NJ Fatman Facebook page is pretty barren though, with little to no activity in the last 8 months. So what else has Jionni got going on?
In March, Us Weekly reported that “LaValle heads up his own ATM business.” This title was rather vague, but Examiner noticed that a Snooki fan tweeted that he or she had seen Jionni “servicing” an ATM. Snooki tweeted soon after, “He owns his own ATMs.” According to Examiner, “the average ATM owner earns about $810 per month per machine from ATM surcharges charged with transactions.”
Us also reported that Jionni “once considered a career in teaching and has coached a high school wrestling team,” though both career aspirations are described in the past tense.
Do you think Jionni is earning enough with his T-shirt line and his ATMs? Keep in mind, we’re talking “enough” as in, can he keep his lady love and their son in animal prints to last a lifetime?
