Regis Philbin is old. Super old. Like, “Jesus Christ was my camp counselor” old. So it’s no surprise that when Jersey Shore stars Jenni “JWoww” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi
showed up on Live with Regis & Kelly yesterday morning, Reeg didn’t quite know what to make of them.
This clip starts off on the right foot, as the ex-Millionaire host dances awkwardly during JWoww and Snooki’s entrance music. (Is he doing the Twist?) Things just get better after that, especially when Regis confesses that he has no idea what the phrase “hook-up” means. That leads to this exchange:
Kelly: Why don’t you tell us what “hook-up” means, nowadays?
JWoww: The PG-rated version?
Snooki, turning to JWoww: What should I say? I don’t even know.
JWoww: When two people get together, and…
Snooki, after a pause: Kiss.
Reeg, in a tone of astonishment: You actually kissed Vinny? No kidding!
Kelly Ripa soon interjects to let her co-host know that he probably can’t handle the rest of the story.
The full interview includes a few other gems, like Snooki on going to jail (“They didn’t feed me, they didn’t coddle me, and I’m like, “Really?”) and Regis awkwardly asking the girls to define “smushing.” Watch it in its entirety below.
