Here’s A Lesson For You: Govone Who Punched ‘Snooki’ On MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ Is a Queens School Teacher

December 11, 2009

Our last “Jersey Shore” item, we promise, until the show is canceled.

Both theNew York Post and New York Daily News report Friday that the ape who punched tiny Nicole “Snooki” Polizza at the Beachcomber bar in Seaside Heights, N.J., is a school teacher.

The assailant is Brad Ferro, who was teaching at North Queens Community High School in Flushing, Queens. Now, the Post and News report that Ferro has been taken from the classroom and sent to one of the Department of Education’s teacher-reassignment centers, which are nicknamed “rubber rooms.”

A video clip of Ferro whacking Polizza on the controversial MTV reality show went viral.

Ferro got slapped with simple assault charges stemming from the incident. He was fined $500 and ordered to take anger management classes.

Can Actress Fran Drescher Get Us A Young Boyfriend, Like Her’s? We’re Buying Her HSN Skincare Products To Find Out

After enduring days of annoying promos, HSN viewers got to see actress Fran Drescher debut Tuesday morning with her FranBrand line of skincare products. And we have to say, we were impressed.

“This is my maiden voyage on HSN,” said Drescher, who has gained weight since “The Nanny,” but looks gorgeous.

“People are always complimenting me on how beautiful my skin is,” the comedic actress said, attributing her glow to her own skincare products.

But most importantly, cancer survivor and rape victim Drescher said she started the line because she became concerned about what she was putting on her skin after her “darkest hours,” when she was ill with uterine cancer.

She called FranBrand “a beautiful, natural extension of my advocacy,” with natural ingredients and eco-friendly glass packaging.

The beauty industry is self-regulating, which Drescher called “the fox guarding the henhouse.”

Drescher is also putting her money where her mouth is: 2 percent of the FranBrand sales will go to the Cancer Schmancer Movement, the actress’s nonprofit organization dedicating to ensuring that women’s cancer is diagnosed in Stage 1.

The FranBrand product jars also each have a “Franism” on them such as, “When you look for the good in others, you discover the best in yourself.”

The show kicked off with a description of Drescher’s work as a public-policy advocate for women’s issues, and HSN showed photos of Drescher with President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

But here’s what may get us to try FranBrand: Drescher keep making reference to her boyfriend, who uses some of her products.

Descher, 52, also said that her boyfriend is nine years younger than her, and that when they wake up together in the morning, he doesn’t think he’s in bed with an old woman, or words to that effect.

Hey, if FranBrand will get us a young boyfriend, we’re placing our order now.

Queens-bred Drescher even brough her small brown dog Esther to the show. We’re not sure of the breed, we think she may be a Pomeranian. The dog is in the promo, which is on If we are wrong about the breed, let us know.

At one point, Drescher said, “June 21st was the day I was cured of my cancer.” Mazel Tov, Fran.
