According to The New York Post, an e-mail her dad sent described her as "the hottest thing on the market."
But first, the back story: In 2010, Snooki partnered up with licensing company SRG, but filed suit last October to end the contract. She alleged SRG didn't meet its obligations to bring in enough licensing deals. That wasn't the end of it, however; SRG filed a $7 million counterclaim against the Jersey Shore star and her management company. The claim indicates she negotiated with other brands, which dragged down deals SRG brought in the door.

According to recently filed paperwork, SRG attorneys indicated her party-like behavior such as the arrest for public intoxication in 2010 left several brands like Disney and Target having "no interest" in associating with her. SRG also included an e-mail sent by Andy Polizzi, her father, which praised the company last May — one month before they were shown the door.
As per the newspaper, the e-mail read: “I as Nicole want to thank you for all that has been done to this point…I feel we have a good team, and I just want to make it a better one so we all prosper along with nicole gaining fortune and fame. I think she is the hottest thing on the market right now, and we need to gain all we can with that so I can set her up for life if this ever ends, which I hope it doesn’t.”
