Jersey Shore's Snooki cashes in on punch in the face

Jersey Shore

breakout star Snooki was punched in the face by a stranger at a nightclub on a recent episode of the MTV hit.

The swelling has long since passed, but the media attention surrounding the blow has created a lucrative opportunity for her. Gawker reports that "After getting punched in the face on camera, Snooki went from the cheapest Jersey Shore [cast member] ($2,000) to the priciest ($10,000 at last count)."
