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!
“Everyone said I was going to have a boy, and they were right!” Snooki gushes. “I thought it was going to be a girl. I was hoping it would be, because all girls want girls,” Snooki confesses, but, “It’s still my baby, no matter what. I’m excited either way!”
I think it’s probably a blessing in disguise. I mean what would she teach her daughter? How to smoosh, get trashed, and beer goggle? <<shudder>>
And after months of claiming she was barely eating for two, she now confesses she’s having pregnancy cravings. “I love anything cold and juicy, like Italian ices.” One thing she’s not craving is fiance Jionni LaValle. “Our sex life is hardly there! I just feel too icky and gross,” Snooki discloses, “I’m so not in the mood to do stuff.”
And now that she’s a mama, Snooki plans to put her Jersey Shore acting trashy ways behind her. Thankfully! “Being a mom changes you,” Snooki explains. “I’m not going to party hard anymore, even after the baby is born.”
Congratulations Snooki! I can only imagine what she’ll name him. Hopefully, not Gorilla.
THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S REVEAL? WILL SHE LEAVE THE JERSEY SHORE WAYS BEHIND HER?
Snooki and fiance Jionni LaValle are so happy in love, but the couple is NOT planning to say “I Do!” until Snookers looses the pregnancy pounds. An insider reports the wedding won’t be happening for at least another year!
A friend of the Jersey Shore star reveals that Snooki plans to include her little one in the ceremony which is another reason she wants to postpone. And there is “no way” she will be incorporating a baby bump into her wedding dress!
As for why the star, who is approximately 6 months along has eschewed maternity clothes her friend tells WetPaint, Snooki “doesn’t like them.”
In more Snooki news, the pint sized guidette was recently spotted shopping – in the little girls department of the toy store! According to RadarOnline, Snooki and BFF JWoww were shopping on Madison Avenue in NYC where Snooki was seen holding a pink giraffe toy. What, not a leopard?
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.

A source tells them that “Mike was taking unbelievable amounts of Dilaudid along with Xanax and Ambien. Mike was taking about 20-30 pills a day which easily could have killed him. Mike is very lucky that he didn’t overdose and die, because the amount of prescription drugs was that high and deadly. It was very easy for Mike to get the prescription drugs, and he got them from more than one doctor. It’s very likely that his physicians were unaware that he was taking all three of the prescription drugs. Mike would also drink alcohol while he was taking the pills which obviously could have had a horrible outcome for him. Everyone around him is hopeful he will stay sober once he leaves Cirque Lodge.”
Another friend shared that Mike had “become dependent on prescription pills to counter-act other his hard partying lifestyle, which included illegal substances. Mike was in a vicious cycle of not sleeping because of the illegal substances that he was taking, so he began using prescription pills to help him sleep. Mike would refer to the prescriptions pills as ‘downers.’ The good news is that he was the one that wanted to get help and checked into rehab. Hopefully with the proper treatment, Mike will be able to lead a sober life.”
TMZ is reporting that MTV has known since the beginning of season TWO that Mike had some serious drinking problems and tried to force him to get help. They threatened several times to replace him and each time he got his act together enough that they kept him on. Now, they’re worried about the opposite problem – what if he’s too sober and it becomes “Jersey Snore”? Especially now with Snooki’s pregnancy added in there. Even though MTV has said they’re not replacing the cast, sources tell TMZ they ARE on the hunt for replacements.
On a much lighter note, Snooki shared this adorable shot of her and baby-daddy-turned-fiance Jionni LaValle. I’m not sure if it’s meant to be their “official” engagement photo, but they are showing off Snooki’s new rock. They really are an adorable couple. I wonder if MTV will shoot a spinoff focused on these two after their baby is born. Snooki learning to change diapers and dealing with all that a new baby brings could certainly make for some quality entertainment.
It was widely reported yesterday that Jersey Shore‘s Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino entered rehab. Initially, the reality star famous for his abs and drama stirring, attempted to deflect the issue at hand by claiming that he had checked himself in “for much needed rest and recuperation.”
This isn’t an unusual catch-all excuse; many celebrities check into treatment for “exhaustion” and are unwilling to give specifics. However, in a post on his blog, SitchNews was updated with this statement: “You can’t believe everything you hear about ‘the situation’ with The Situation. This is just like the child hood game of ‘telephone’ – someone hears a small rumor and blows it out of proportion.” That was posted yesterday at 11:24 a.m.
Later in the day at 4:46 p.m., a new statement was posted with the true reason Mike checked into rehab. The Situation writes:
“I want to set the record straight. I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.”
Mike’s change of heart may have stemmed from the fact that sources went to TMZ and revealed the location of his facility, Cirque Lodge in Utah, and provided details of his behavior. Sources tell TMZ Mike is “telling people he’s gained weight” and “has made specific diet requests from the chef at the facility.”
In fact, TMZ is also reporting this morning that Mike is in rehab for both alcohol and prescription drugs. Sources say he has been “very open” with other patients at Cirque about his drinking, stating that his club appearances escalated his alcohol use. Mike’s issues with alcohol is reportedly posing an issue for MTV as let’s face it, Jersey Shore is pretty much about getting wasted and acting stupid!
Not surprisingly, a source also says that Mike hasn’t been humbled by his recent rehab check-in and “is making damn sure everyone remembers how wealthy and famous he is.” Some things never change.
MTV announced this week it would renew Jersey Shore for its sixth season, despite the fact that its other biggest star, Snooki is not only pregnant, she’s currently filming her spin-off. Two shows will feature pregnant Snooki! A sober Snooki will be a sight to behold; even casual viewers are familiar with her constant state of inebriation and a new report alleges she’s having a hard time letting go of her constant companion: alcohol.
“She’s vowed not to drink, but Snooki is definitely tempted. Her friends are a little worried about her because it’s such a big change and not one she was really ready for. She’s having a hard time adjusting to being sober 24/7.” This isn’t surprising since she had a hard time staying sober for even one shift at the Shore Store, much less long stretches of time.
In fact, since this pregnancy was a surprise, Snooki drank during the first weeks, unaware of what she was doing. She has admitted to doing so in the press, but an insider says, her admission is the tip of the iceberg: “She’s admitted that she was drinking a lot at New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas, but the truth is it’s way worse than she’s letting on. She was on a total binge over the holidays — it was one party after another, so now she can’t help but panic a little.”
Snooki is also very worried about weight gain. She very publicly reached her goal weight of 98 lbs recently and the surprise pregnancy is throwing her for a loop. Alarmingly, she is determined to maintain her weight loss throughout her pregnancy. An insider says, “She worked so hard to get back to her best shape and now the pounds are piling on, which is natural but that doesn’t make it any easier.”
There are even rumors that she isn’t eating food fiancé Jionni LaValle is preparing for her, to you know, nourish her unborn child. “Most of it hits the trash when he’s not looking. Snooki doesn’t see anything wrong with it but it’s definitely pretty worrisome, the last thing she should be worried about right now is her figure.”
According to the report, “Jionni is telling her not to worry about it, that she’ll have no trouble losing the baby weight but she’s still really worked up about it.” We hope she starts eating!
The Jersey Shore reunion airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
TELL US: WITH SNOOKI’S PREGNANCY & MIKE’S ADDICTION ISSUES, IS IT TIME FOR MTV TO THROW IN THE TOWEL? SHOULD MIKE RETURN TO THE SHOW? THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S PRE-NATAL DIETING?
Unless you’ve been in isolation for the past few weeks, you are well aware that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziis 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 UsWeeklyquotes 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.

TELL US: WOULD YOU WATCH THE SHOW WITHOUT SNOOKI? DO YOU THINK JWOWW IS JEALOUS? WHAT DO YOU THINK SNOOKI’S WEDDING DRESS WILL LOOK LIKE?
With news of her pregnancy and engagement finally confirmed, Snooki is stepping up and making some serious changes in her life. The notorious 24-year-old party girl has decided not to film Jersey Shore this summer, she will focus on being a mother and providing her child with a healthy upbringing.
“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,” Snooki informed Us Weekly in an exclusive interview. Snooki has also decided to postpone her wedding to fiancé Jionni LaValle until next year, because she wants to lose the baby weight.
Snooki said her parents had mixed opinions about her news. “My dad was upset. He said, ‘You have your whole life ahead of you.’ We didn’t talk for a week. He came around eventually, and now he can’t wait for the baby. My mom is so happy for me.”
Apparently, Snooki’s pregnancy has also caused concern among her co-stars. Vinny Guadagnino worried he might be the father after his fling with Snooki last year. “He’s counting the months. At first he was, but then he’s like, ‘It’s no way in the world, it’s no way. It’s gotta be Jionni’s. It’s gotta be,’” Pauly D joked. Uh oh… paging Maury!
Pauly is thrilled for Snookers, saying she has always wanted to be a mother. “I’m real excited. I love babies! I love everything about them, when they’re not yours. So I’ll take care of it, spoil it and then when it’s crying, give it back to Snooki,” he exclaims. “I want to be at the delivery room,” he adds. Um… ew.
Luckily, MTV is supportive of Snooki’s decision to take a break from filming Jersey Shore, because, well, that’s no place for babies! “We wish Nicole a healthy and happy pregnancy and congratulate her on her engagement,” a spokesperson for MTV told PEOPLE. “We support her as she starts this new chapter of her life.” Adding, “No decision has been made yet on a sixth season of Jersey Shore.”
However, many speculate the show has run its course, as the cast have gone in different directions and are getting their own spin offs. Ratings declined this season, but are still strong averaging as many as 5 million viewers a week. Additionally, one does wonder how long the “talent” will be interested in acting like drunken buffoons!
While she doesn’t want to continue with the show that made her famous, Snooki’s spin-off with JWoww is still happening. The two were spotted moving into a Jersey City apartment recently to prepare for filming. And Snooki was spotted filming this week and showing off her engagement ring! A photo of the ring is below!
Finally, Snooki is talking baby names. Way back in November the guidette had babies on the brain and talked about what she would name a future child. Thankfully Pickle and Tequila aren’t on the list. Snooki told GQ her top names are Frankie, Isabella, Giana, and Jionni Jr. She also shared that she hopes to have four kids! Wait until you have one first!
