This particular neck brace appears to be a reality show prop ...
Jersey Shore reality star Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi was sporting a neck brace in Florence, Italy on Tuesday, following a fender bender that sent two police officers to a hospital for treatment of cuts and whiplash.
Snooki was taken to the local cop shop to fill out an accident report but was not detained. According to authorities, the 'Guidette' plowed into a police car that was serving as a lead escort through the historic streets of the host city of Florence.
It appears the padded foam cervical collar that Snooki was photographed wearing may have actually been a prop that was used during filming. One minute she was sporting the medical support and not long afterward she was strolling through the streets of Italy without it ... looking none the worse for wear.
