Snooki: I restore Sandy damage

Snooki has called Hurricane Sandy a "little b***h" and vowed to help restore the damage done to New Jersey.

The reality TV star and her Jersey Shore castmates united yesterday in an effort to raise money and support the Restore the Shore project.

The televised fundraiser, organised by MTV, gave stars the chance to share their experiences of the superstorm and appeal for help with rebuilding New Jersey's iconic Seaside Heights area.

During the hour-long telethon yesterday, Snooki re-watched a tape of herself taking a helicopter ride over the devastated area.

"Sandy, you little b***h, you tried to destroy us," Snooki fumed to MTV on the tape.

"But we're going to build it better and stronger than it ever was."

The 24-year-old reflected on the damage done and promised to take her newborn son Lorenzo to the Shore, should enough money be raised to restore it.

She also spoke out about the emotions her helicopter ride over New Jersey had provoked.

"I saw [the devastation] in the helicopter for the first time. Just seeing the boardwalk not there was scary," she said.

"To see it like that is devastating. I hope we raise enough money to restore it," Snooki's co-star Deena Cortese added.

Fellow castmember Vinny Guadagnino even headed down to the devastated area to speak to residents.

He shared that his time spent talking to people who lived in Jersey Shore was emotional.

"I spent some time with some local people here at the shore who have been affected by the storm and I've gotten to know what they're going through," he revealed.

"And I can't explain to you the depth of the devastation I've seen since I've been here and you can look into the eyes of the people who live here and see their pain."

During the televised plea for help many other stars showed their support via video messages.

Britney Spears, Kim Kardashian and Dakota Fanning were among the famous faces to lend their voice to the cause and encouraged people to donate.

Hurricane Sandy hit the east coast of America last month, leaving many people without homes or electricity.
