Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola takes OK!’s Last Word interview in the issue on newsstands now. The Jersey Shore star, 23, opens up about Snooki, singing in the car and speeding tickets.

This is what you won’t find in the magazine.

Last time someone called you Sweetheart?
At dinner tonight when I was with my family, a young girl came up to me and goes “Oh my God, you’re Sammi Sweetheart!” Normally I get called Sammi Sweetheart on a daily basis.

Last time you were mistaken for another celebrity?
I don’t know if it is because I have a distinct look or not, but there are no fans that have mistaken me for someone else.

Last song you sang in the car?
I like to drive everywhere, so I normally like to sing out loud in my car where nobody else can hear me. Katy Perry’s California Gurls was probably the last song that I sung in my car.

Last time you got a speeding ticket?
I don’t know if this is because I am a good driver or not [laughs], but I have never gotten a ticket for speeding in my life. Safe driving is the way to be!

Last time you felt starstruck?
The last time I was completely starstruck would have to be when I went to the MTV Awards. It was such an amazing experience — everywhere you looked there were celebrities. I was completely shocked I was standing next to some really amazing actors.

Last time you saw Snooki?
I always see the cast every once in awhile, so I would have to say that I saw her last week.  We always have events and such going on with the cast, so we see each other a lot.

Last time you went to the Jersey Shore?
I live at the Jersey Shore! I’m at the beach as much as I can. I was there less than a week ago with my beach chair and sunscreen.

Last time you relaxed?
Today was my day off, so I tried to relax by my pool and just enjoy this stress-free day.

Last time you felt proud?
I actually feel extremely proud of my family and sisters. Both of my sisters are doing well with their careers and are both determined people.  I am so proud of my family and the things that they overcome.

Last time you went in a hot tub?
The last time I went in the hot tub would probably have to be when I was in Miami. Of course, there is always a hot tub when the Jersey Shore crew is around!
