I'm going to be honest. I sometimes miss my guido and guidette fist pumping friends from Jersey Shore. Don't get me wrong, the series needed to end. They were too old to keep partying at the shore, and they had undergone too many life changes. But, we had some really fun times together, didn't we? Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi may have done the biggest 180, starting out as the orangest, drunkest meatball and transforming into a calmer version of her former self when she became a mom.
Thankfully, I can still get a smaller dose of Snooki thanks to the Internet…and usually a small dose is all I need. Snooki is now designing her seventh tattoo that she is getting as a tribute to baby Lorenzo and any other future kids she may have with fiance Jionni LaValle. In fact, she plans on her and Jionni getting matching tats!
Oompah Loompah, Doopity Doo, Snooki wants another baby, it's true! Twenty-five-year-old Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi is a new mom to baby Lorenzo with her fiance Jionni LaValle. We watched her pregnancy progress on the final season of JS, and we'll get to the birth on this season of Snooki & JWoww.
Like a good meatball, Snooki wants lots of kiddos with her gorilla juicehead. They seem to make adorable babies together, so I am sure Lorenzo won't have any grenades as siblings.
You could feel the collective intake of air when society as a whole learned the news that Kim Kardashian and Kanye West would be bringing a mini-Kimye into the world. If you were quiet enough, you could probably hear the dollar signs ka-chinging in Kris Jenner's eyeballs. Oh, the spin-offs! The elaborate and totally ridiculously expensive baby gifts (the child will need his or her own private jet)! The publicity! The magazine covers! Did I mention the spin-offs? How are we ever going to continue Keeping Up with theKardashians if they are constantly multiplying?
Kim and Kanye's khild is already internationally famous and the kid hasn't even been born yet. However, being famous for being conceived is far better than one his or her mother is famous for, right? Let's face it…the world had the same fearful reaction for the unborn child's fate when Jersey Shore's tequila-soaked, slipper-wearing, fist-pumping, underwear-forgetting meatball, and that situation (no pun intended) seems to be working out wonderfully. Snooki has truly taken to motherhood, and most people would likely agree that it seems to have changed her for the better. I'm hoping the same for Kim and wish her and tiny rapper my congratulations.
I'll admit, my fist pumping has turned into more of a fist wrist flick. Not only did the Jersey Shore end, it ended with a fizzle, not a grenade. It was time, and although I love my gross, orange, drunk, poorly dressed friends, that finale was just too tame. Don't get me wrong…I wasn't looking for alcohol infused antics, but these roommates have shown us time and again that they can entertain without being totally wasted. The pranks, rascal races, family dinners, and meatball auditions were hilarious. The series finale was not.
