Despite showing some seriously scary signs of an alcohol problem in Jersey Shore Season 4, Snooki wants to assure fans that she is not an alcoholic.

When asked by Parade Magazine about what the biggest misconception about her is, the reality show dynamo busted the party girl bubble:

“Probably that I’m an alcoholic and I drink and all I want to do is hook up. That’s totally not the case. You have to remember that reality shows capture your worst moments.”

While her constant day-drinking binges while in Italy were troubling, it could just be that Snooks was going through a bad time. (You have to remember that she was constantly fighting with boyfriend Jionni Lavalle at this point and dealing with The Situation accusing her of hooking up with him.) We’re sure the combination of a sad Snooki, unlimited alcohol, and a country with lax regulations on public drunkenness resulted in Nicole’s hot mess of a stay in Italia.
