It’s a whole new world, Snooki is pregnant and Jersey Shore will continue to film with her this year. Since the show is so reliant on drunken plotlines, many of us were surprised to hear Snooki was coming back, but what do ya know? Contracts are a powerful thing.

Show producer Sally Ann Salsano tells Zap2It that everyone needs to calm down, and Snooki can still have fun at the shore. “She’s pregnant, not dead.” She insists that the show won’t work around her pregnancy or hide it, “We’re not ‘Friends’ — we can’t have [Snooki] hide behind a big purse and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s a reality show — you follow what happens in their lives.”

As for the bizarre image of a baby bumped Snooki sipping cranberry juice out of those ubiquitous plastic cups at Karma, Sally Ann insists that this is totally normal. “This can be like her last hurrah. Everyone takes that last vacation before the kids. So this is essentially Snooki’s last summer at the shore without a baby.”

Yes, all pregnant mothers love to go clubbing! It’s so natural. While the producer isn’t batting an eye, Snooki’s castmates do admit to being a bit weirded out. In an interview with People, Vinny Guadagnino says he was surprised by the news, “I had no idea. Actually people would call me, like, ‘Is the show still gonna work?’…And I was like, ‘What are you talking about, she’s not pregnant.’ And then all of the sudden, that whole thing came out and I was like, Oh my God.”

Oh my god is right! That’s the reaction most folks probably had. Vinny does think that “She’ll be a great mom.” and that this was a needed transition in Snooki’s life, adding “I think this is a good wakeup call, so I think she’ll be cool.”

Not content to stay out of the spotlight, cast member and Snooki wannabe Deena Nicole Cortese has been making headlines for having, what appears to be, a brand new face. Deena, who usually has a fuller face, was photographed out and about looking not only thinner but like her face had been molded by a professional. Like all celebrities, Deena denies having any work done, other than a nose job.

She tweeted, “just to let ya know..I have not got any plastic surgery. yes in the past i have had a nose job..and i am not against plastic surgery at all..i have thought about getting it redone to round the tip but haven’t yet..and don’t know if I am.”

She credits her transformation as the result of “eyebrow thinning,” makeup lessons, and a new diet.

According to MTV, their mega hit show Jersey Shore will be back for a sixth season!

Even better, the entire cast, including a pregnant Snooki, are all set to return.

“America’s favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory… as their lives outside the “Shore” take off in exciting new directions,” said MTV in a press release. “While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same.”

Filming on the new season is set to begin this summer in Seaside Heights, NJ, when the Snooks will be in her third trimester.

This news is a bit surprising, as Snooki, 24, recently stated she did not want to live in the shore house while pregnant. “I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” said Snooki to UsWeekly earlier this month.

It will definitely be interesting to see how MTV decides to handle Snooki’s pregnancy.

Unless you’ve been in isolation for the past few weeks, you are well aware that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is with child and engaged to boyfriend, Jionni Lavalle. Proving she’s a bit more calculated than her constantly drunk behavior lets on, the story was leaked to the media a month before Snooki announced it to the world, via her very own USWeekly cover, just like she was a real celebrity!

The news is out, and it’s now time for “sources” to pop and stir up drama about the reaction of her castmates. First up, a report on Hollywoodlife.com alleges Snooki’s spinoff co-star Jenni JWoww” Farley is jealous of Snooki as she totally thought she’d be the first to be engaged. The source reveals: “JWoww really thought that she would get engaged to [boyfriend] Roger [Matthews]. Snooki got pregnant out of nowhere and that prompted her engagement. JWoww feels like Snooki keeps stealing the spotlight and everything is about her.”

The girls are currently filming their spin-off in Jersey City. It’s been rumored that due to this new development, the show had to change direction. Well, we certainly hope so! If they kept the show with the same themes, it may as well be turned into a documentary on the development of fetal alcohol syndrome. But, it’s easy to see why JWoww would feel left out. Pregnancy trumps everything.

One castmate who is not jealous is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, a report in UsWeekly quotes her as saying Snooki is going to be a fun parent.” She makes a good point when she points out that it’s not like Snooki is a lost kid, saying “It’s not like she’s 16 and pregnant. She’s doing her thing, she’s living her life and I just think she’s blessed. I can’t wait to see a little guido or guidette running around. I just think it’s going to be so exciting.”

Aw, Sammi finally lives up to her nickname! Sammi is also excited for Snooki’s wedding, which will surely be a classy affair. Sammi envisions it like this: “I can see her having a cheetah or zebra print-themed wedding because she loves animal print. . .I’m excited for them. I just can’t wait to party for the wedding and do all the fun things she has coming in her life now.”

Finally, Deena Nicole, Snooki’s fellow “meatball” and frequent partner in crime has gone on the record to say that despite rumors of the show’s demise without Snooki, the GTL can go on. She says, “The show doesn’t revolve around Snooki, it’s all of us. I don’t see why we couldn’t film without her.”

Snooki has said she doesn’t want to go back to the show since she doesn’t want to be the “pregnant woman at the club” but Deena says she can come visit. “She could come down and we could throw her a little baby shower before the little meatball pops out.” It’d be an extra special Sunday dinner!

The finale of Jersey Shore season 5 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

Best known for her on-again, off-again relationship with co-star Ronnie, Jersey Shore‘s Sammi Sweetheart also wants the world to know she’s just a regular gal. With a lot of money from a reality show. And a perfume. You know, like us normal girls.

In an interview with Naughty But Nice Rob, Sammi says that despite the show’s massive success she is still the same, proclaiming “I am just myself and I like being me. I am still doing the same things that I was doing prior to the show. I am just me.”

When asked about how her more famous co-stars were doing, she kept it nice: “I don’t know if the show changed them. I think they look fabulous and they are doing great.”

Of her post-show plans, Sammi said she wanted most to return to school and finish her degree, telling Rob she has “one semester left.” She is quick to point out that despite their on-screen antics, there are brains amongst the crew: “What’s cool is Vinny has his degree, but most of us went to college, even though no one knows that. We all are very smart in our own way.”

While I don’t think we’ll be seeing any of the Jersey Shore discussing economic policy over shots any time soon, there is something to Sammi’s statement that the gang certainly has smarts, especially when it comes to self-promotion. Sammi also revealed that Snooki went to college though it’s safe to assume she didn’t quite finish.

For example, the female cast members have all started to post no-makeup photos following the success of Sammi’s “makeunder” from xoJane.com. Snooki followed with her own no-makeup pics and now Deena Cortese has joined in, posting the following au naturel photos to her Twitter account this week. Those photos are below!

Snooki on the other hand is back to her usual and posted a few new bikini photos, hinting these might go on the cover of her new book. (Yes, Snooki is releasing another literary tome for the masses!) Those pics are also below!

A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV (10/9c).

Could it be? Has it been an entire season of Jersey Shore? Are we really saying arrivederci to Florence with our favorite gorilla juiceheads and guidettes? It seems like only yesterday the meatballs were hooking up with one another and Mike was bashing his head into a wall. Ahh, memories. I mean, this was the season that had a bearable, dare I say likeable, Rawn and Sam! That, in itself, is mind boggling.

We rejoin the group at the tail end of their clubbing. At home, Mike continues to talk to himself and practice karate on the walls. Snooki wakes up and proceeds to ignore Mike as he wanders aimlessly around the house having a solo conversation. The rest of the roommates return home from the clerb, with Sam begging Rawn to talk some sense into Mike after his antics earlier in the evening.

The Situation confides in Ronnie that he feels like the villain. Ronnie knows that Mike has been depressed and he wants him to try to mend fences with the housemates. A slightly defensive Mike says he doesn’t care if his roommates don’t like him. He has gotten used to be alone. Sammi commends Rawn for at least trying to talk to Mike.

Last night’s episode of Jersey Shore was a hot mess of Mike hate and meatball madness. Pauly D manages to avoid Deena’s advances for “the sex,” while JWoww and Sam relish in their new found (and slightly surprising, given past seasons) friendship.

We rejoin the group with Snooki on the phone with Jionni discussing her smush session with Vinny. Jionni is pissed and Snooki is fanning her face to dry up her tears and while cocking her pink sequined ball cap to the side like a rapper. Jionni can’t handle her news, but he’s willing to continue talking to her. After they hang up, Vinny asks if Snooks wants to cuddle with him to make her feel better. He’s too funny.

On last night’s episode of Jersey Shore, the girls and guys take separate mini-vacays. Things are off-again-on-again for Snooki with both her boyfriend Jionni and her biffle JWoww. The Situation stirs the pot, and Pauly D sits back and watches it all like he’s on my couch watching with me. I actually think that would be a blast!

Snooki wakes up discombobulated in Vinny’s bed, and she goes to wake up JWoww at the chipper hour of 7am. Jenni doesn’t know where Snooks slept, but Snooki reveals in her confessional that she would never cheat on Jionni. In fact, she specifically remembers telling him “we’re done” before hopping into Vin’s bed. JWoww reluctantly gets up and fills Nicole in on how she defended her to Mike the previous night.

Mike wanders into the ladies’ room after hearing a lot of yelling. Snooki starts screaming at him. Perhaps the lady protests too much. Snooki and JWoww head out for a breakfast of mimosas, and Mike calls his friend Unit (seriously?) who was diddling Ryder on the night in question. The Situation wants to make sure he didn’t make up the sexcapades in his head. Unit confirms Mike’s version of the story. Over their champagne brunch, Snooki admits to JWoww that she hooked up with Vinny but that they didn’t smush….that she remembers.

Last night’s Jersey Shore was one hot mess of tears, douchiness, sex, and some absolutely horrible boots. The whole thing was just A. LOT.

Snooki wakes up the next day after Jionni leaves feeling awful, and still sporting her hot pink leopard swimsuit. Pauly D, along with Rawn and Deena, head to work, and Pauly is trying to be as loud and annoying as possible to exasperate his roommates’ hangovers.

Back at the villa, Snooki can’t get in touch with Jionni so she seeks the advice of her BFF JWoww. Unfortunately for Snooki, Jenni wasn’t blackout wasted the night before and she remembers all the kind and loving things her friend screamed at her in the streets. She decides to sleep in and ignore Snooki’s whining. Undeterred, Snooki puts on a hoodie (or is that a dress?) and her Ewok boots to go out day drinking alone. That is always a great idea!
