SHOCKER: Jersey Shore's JWoww and Snooki Are Not Italian

So much for being "guidette" princesses.

Jersey Shore star Jenni "JWoww" Farley, 23, admitted to Fox Strategy Room Tuesday that she and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi aren't even Italian!

J-Woww says she's Spanish and Irish, while Snooki, 21, is Chilean.

The MTV reality show was slammed by Italian-American groups for perpetuating "negative stereotypes," UNICO National President Andre DiMino told Fox last year.

"If you replace Italian-Americans with any other ethnic group, would they use such a pejorative term to promote the show?" he fumed.

JWoww also shattered another Jersey Shore myth: The girls don't believe in GTL! (Which stands for gym, tan, laundry, the schedule made famous by co-star Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino.)

Instead, they follow a SSC routine: sleeping, shopping and clubbing.
