Sources close to Snooki, 24, confirm to the NY Post that she and beau Jionni LaValleare expecting their first child together, and she’s about three months along.
So why did she deny the pregnancy earlier? Well, it appears the Snooks was planning to cash in on her big news! The NY Post is reporting this morning that Snooki has struck a deal with UsWeekly magazine to announce her pregnancy on their cover, after shopping her pregnancy story to multiple magazines.
MTV is now reportedly worried about their cash cow, no pun intended, in regards to how this will resonate with fans, as let’s face it, Snooki is famous for being a drunken hot mess.
In fact, she just started filming a spinoff show with her Jersey Shore costar and BFF JWoww last week. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show,” says a source.
Star Magazine was the first to break news back on Feb 1, and on Feb 2, Snooki appeared on Good Morning America during which she denied being preggos. “I definitely do want kids, but I’m not pregnant . . . Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I’m not,” said Snooki to Lara Spencer.
No word yet on when Snooki’s announcement will appear on UsWeekly magazine. Snooki’s pregnancy will likely mark the end of the Jersey Shore series, at least for her cast, as it’s very doubtful the show can go on without her. A report also came out two weeks ago stating Snooki and Jionni were engaged.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI REPORTEDLY BEING PREGNANT? CAN SHE STOP DRINKING FOR 9 MONTHS? IS THE WORLD READY FOR A MINI SNOOKI?
UPDATE: Snooki is denying she is preggos!

So there you have it folks. The world can collectively breathe a sigh of relief!
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.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON GOV. CHRISTIE’S DECISION? PLUS THOUGHTS ON DEENA’S COMMENTS? DO YOU THINK SNOOKI LOST WEIGHT?
Just days after they were photographed above together in Florence, Italy, both UsWeekly and Life and Style magazine are reporting Snooki, 22, and boyfriend Jionni LaValle, 23, have broken up.
Even more surprising, the couple had been together for eight months. An insider tells UsWeekly the break-up occurred during Jionni’s visit to Italy where Snooki and the rest of the Shore gang are currently filming the 4th season. “They broke up,” an insider reveals. “[He] came home early.”
Life & Style gives more details, stating the break-up occurred over the weekend. “Snooki and her boyfriend have split up,” a source states. “He went to visit her in Italy this past week. They fought a lot while he was there and have called it quits.”
The couple, who actually met during the 3rd season filming of the show, got into a public fight over an incident at a club. While they kissed and made up the next day, they shortly realized that they still had distance and trust issues between them, and ended things.
“He said it was hard for them to be apart, and that with the whole world knowing her past, he finds it very hard to trust her,” a second source close to Jionni reveals. “He said that as far as he was concerned, if she did anything wrong in Italy, it was over.” However, it doesn’t appear there was any wrongdoing on Snooki’s part.
MTV announced over the weekend that the 4th season of the Jersey Shore will premiere August 4. Season 5 is also set to begin filming soon.
