Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi: Say what you will about the self-described "Jersey Shore" 'guidette,' but one thing's certain: She definitely rakes in the dough. Just last month, she earned a whopping $32,000 for speaking to students at Rutgers University (money also will go to her management and the speakers' bureau used to book her). That's $2,000 more than what the university paid Nobel prize-winning author Toni Morrison to deliver the school's commencement address in May. Us Weekly also reported that the MTV star — who has inked hair product and book deals and has a spin-off show in the works — charges $20,000 to walk an event's red carpet.
