I have a confession to make: I love (and miss) those crazy kids from Jersey Shore. Admittedly, I wasn't onboard when MTV's train wreck originally started, and my dear friends who raved about it and subsequently got me hooked piddled off after the second season. I didn't. Granted, I had to watch it for Reality Tea, but I so would have watched regardless…however, it was nice to have the guise of the blog to hide my true addiction. I could GTL (well, technically just "L") with the best of them. On the rare occasion I call for a taxi, I whisper "cabs a heeya" to myself when it arrives. True story.
Vanderpump Rules' Scheana Marie recently said that wedding spin-offs are "boring," and it's the only thing on which I will EVER agree with her. However, I'd totally watch Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi walk down the aisle. Of course, I'd want the entire gang (sans Jolie Trashbags) involved. Alas, I don't think I'll get my wish of televised Seaside nuptials (although my fingers remain crossed!), but it seems that Snooki's wedding to fiance (and dad of the cutest tiny guido gorilla juicehead toddler) Jionni LaValle is full steam ahead. After a year long engagement, Snooki has finally started planning the exciting event!
Just a few minutes ago Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) announced that she and fiance Jionni LaValle have secretly tied the knot.
Snooki writes, "Jionni and I eloped!!! Here's a pic of the magical day!". Snooki included a shot of what might have been their secret wedding ceremony.
I immediately want to believe the former Jersey Shore star because they seem like the type of couple who would rather have a "normal" media-free wedding day, but there's a part of me that's a little cautious today since it IS April Fool's Day.
What do you think? Is Snooki pulling a prank? Or is she purposely announcing it today to make us wonder if it's the real deal or not?
UPDATED: Snooki shared tonight: "APRIL FOOLS ya freaks!! My ass is gonna have a huge wedding lets be serious!! lololol". So there we go….
Aww, how cute is expectant mom Snooki!? The Jersey Shore star and her fiance, Jionni LaValle had a great time yesterday hanging out at Citi Field.
Snooki and Jionni met with third baseman David Wright and posed for some photos. She Tweeted her excitement over the game: “Can’t wait to go to the mets game tonight! #believe #alwaysametsfan”. Snooki also shared some shots of her baby belly, saying “My son’s first Mets game! Havin so much fun at the mets game! My grandpa would be shitting his pants right now! Xoxoxox”. Classin’ up Twitter, as always.
In other Snooki news, it looks like her spin-off show, Snooki & J-Woww was renewed for another season! She Tweeted last night: “Woot woot @MissRidiculous: OMG @SNOOKI AND @JENNIWOWW PICKED UP ON A SEASON 2 FOR THEIR SPIN OFF!!!!!!”
Have you been watching the show? I’m guessing this will be MTV’s way of showing us Snooki’s delivery and her first days as a new mom since filming on Jersey Shore has already wrapped.

Rosie Pope is shaking her head right about now. Something tells me that Pregnant in Heels isn’t quite the same as Pregnant in Foam Platform Cheetah Flip Flops. Perhaps it could be a spin-off though, right? Our old friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi didn’t fare too well recently in her staple tacky platforms, taking a tumble in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. While tripping and falling in the streets is nothing new to MTV’s favorite meatball, usually it’s due to severe intoxication. However, no one wants to see a pregnant guidette taking a fall, given, you know, the fact she has a baby on board.
The Huffington Post reminds us that Snooki has touted her ability to walk tall (well, kind of) in heels during her pregnancy. The site reports that she told Good Morning America not too long ago, “I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them. I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.” Maybe not flats, but perhaps Snooki should bring back those beautiful fuzzy pink sneaker slippers as she moves into her later trimester. We’re glad to know she’s okay though!
Is poor, pregnant Snooki being duped by that innocent-looking Jionni LaValle? Rumor has it that he’s been cheating on his fiancé with an ex-girlfriend.
In this week’s National Enquirer (not always trash tabloid), a source says that Jionni has been photographed getting cozy with an old flame named Erica Wecksler, a 22-year-old fashion merchandiser.
“Poor little Snooki is caught up in a love triangle that she knows nothing about! He’s engaged to Snooki but going behind her back to contact Erica, calling and texting her. He’s cheating on Snooki.”
Firing back is Snooki’s rep, who says that the whole thing is made up by a bunch of wannabe famewhores. Oh, so people like the Shore gang before they got their big break?
Her rep tells Hollywood Life: “Snooki is very happy, healthy, in mommy-to-be mode and doesn’t let rumors like this bother her. It’s sad when people come out of the wood work to make some quick cash with made up or embellished stories. Those people are not friends of hers and only want 15 minutes of fame or in their case 30 seconds.”
It’s a good thing that Snooki doesn’t let the crazy rumors get to her, because we know there will be at least twelve new ones per day and filming hasn’t even started on the new season yet!
Another Jersey Shore couple is also dealing with the rumor mill this week. JWowwand Roger Matthews have been facing reports in the media that they were heading for a split, but a friend close to the reality star and her beau says it’s the total opposite. Star says that Jenni dumped Roger when she started filming her new spinoff show with Snooki, but a source says that the two are “always together” and “practically engaged”.
J-Woww also jumped on Twitter (as all celebs do to either stir the pot or set the record straight).
She tweeted: “Just found out online me and roger broke up lol awkward since we r at the gym together right now… Love tabloids.”
Who can keep up anymore? I’ve got whiplash.
In other J-Woww and Snooki news, the dynamic duo shared a photo of their new pad in Jersey City where they’ve been filming their spin-off show.

In what was likely a calculated PR move by the press-loving Nicole Polizzi, better known to us as all Snooki, rumors abound that she and boyfriendJionni Lavalle are engaged! This is on the heels of rumors that Snooki was pregnant, which she has vehemently denied.
While no announcement has been made, Snooki has not been shy about her marriage motivation. In one interview, she said,” Jionni’s a great guy, so you know I’m so down to make guido babies with him!”. A source says that the feeling is mutual, and that the proper hardware has been procured. “Jionni bought the ring. He wants to propose on Valentine’s Day,” the source says. She’s waiting for the right time to announce the news to promote her new show.”
Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and there’s been no news of an engagement, and with a Snooki and JWoww spin-off just about to start shooting in Jersey City, I would predict that an engagement announcement would be timed with the premiere of the show, complete with engagement storylines (Snooki Buys A Wedding Dress At Forever 21 and other episodes).
Snooki‘s relationship with Jionni has been the most positive one she’s engaged with thus far, in a recent video posted to USmagazine.com, she and co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley attribute the success of this relationship (and Jenni’s relationship with boyfriend Roger) to the maturity of the men involved. Snooki and JWoww are quick to point out that both men haven’t changed their careers or lives to accommodate their reality-television girlfriends. Snooki succinctly puts it, “They’re men, not boys.” She adds, “I’s meant to be!” she gushed. “We’re lucky to have found guys that we have found.”
In the video, Snooki also admits that Jionni never refers to her by her Jersey Shore nickname, referring to her as Nicole, and that she would “throw up” if he ever did so.
Snooki’s domestic bliss will be threatened in tonight’s episode of Jersey Shore, where The Situation will finally get to unleash his scheme against her and tell Jionni that they hooked up at the beginning of Jionni and Snooki’s relationship. Snooki responds with her usual grace and class.
Also, Angelina Pivarnick, better known as the Staten Island dump, will be returning on tonight’s episode! In a semi-awkward moment, Pauly DandVinnyspot her at a club and actually decide to greet her. After exchanging pleasantries, Pauly D tries to avoid her while Vinny actually considers taking her home and “banging her.”
The new episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. Check out the preview video below!

It’s Jersey Shorevs. Governor Chris Christie take two, as the New Jersey Governor recently blocked a $420,000 tax credit that was promised to the production company behind the MTV hit show.
Gov. Christie, an outspoken critic of the Jersey Shore, did not mince his words or feelings in explaining why he vetoed the credit. He stated that he was “duty-bound” to stop taxpayer money from going to “a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”
While his reasons seem fair enough, Gov. Christie, who allowed tax credits for other TV shows and films to go forward, is now facing criticism from some who feel he went above and beyond by blocking this tax credit. A piece written by the NYDailyNews criticizes Christie for doing the same thing he attacks the show for — which is playing to the cheap seats.
The article states that while the Jersey Shore is indeed a trashy show, MTV spent $2.1 million filming in New Jersey and therefore deserved the $420,000 credit it applied for. The article adds that Christie’s decision could end up hurting NJ as companies thinking of filming in the state will now wonder if they could lose already-approved financial incentives because some politician “wants to score easy points.”
In other Shore news, Deena Cortese is now speaking out following the airing of the kiss seen around the world. One half member of ‘Team Meatballs’ explained her never-ending makeout session with Snookiduring an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.
Deena stated, “Me and [Snooki] make out when we’re drunk sometimes, it happens! Team meatballs! Meatball power! It was kind of stupid. The roommates were all being so lame and judgmental when they have seen it happen before! It was like, ‘why are you surprised?’”
Deena went on to add that another explanation for the makeout session was also the lack of guys in Italy. “I felt very lonely in Italy. A lot of them had boyfriends and I was like the single girl having a good time,” said Deena. “It was hard to find guys out there because some of them didn’t speak English, some of them hooked up with their sisters! It was hard to communicate.”
And speaking of Snooki, she is also getting media attention after she was pictured above over the weekend during an event in Atlantic City. Many media outlets credited her with a drastic weight loss (not really seeing this) to which she credited the Zantrex weight loss pill. She has an endorsement deal with them. Snooki tweeted, “Glad to hear reports that say I look good =) but it’s not because of HCG! Thanks @Zantrex!”
Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 9th episode this season titled “Three men and a Snooki,” Snooki is devastated over her big fight with Jionni, and decides to take a break from the relationship while also turning to drinking. Mike thinks it’s finally his chance to win her over, but it’s someone else who ends up comforting her. Meanwhile, Deena has a pregnancy scare.
The episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
And as for Snooki and boyfriend Jionniiiiii, they are still together! The Snooks tweeted the below photo of the two just hours ago with the caption “Always.”
