With summer approaching, it’s always fun to remember those crazy gorilla juice heads and spandexed guidettes that know how to do summer right. Right? There is, obviously, a lot of changes going on with the Jersey Shore crew, but that doesn’t mean they are going anywhere any time soon!
In a recent interview with V Magazine, Snooki opened up on the ins and outs of filming a shore based reality show, sharing a few secrets of behind the scenes restrictions. “When we film I really don’t care what I look like. I just enjoy it and have fun. That’s why people love us,” she explains. “I’m overweight because we’re drinking and eating bad, but when I’m not filming I never drink and I eat healthy all the time.”
While that may be the case, Snooki defends her behavior by citing the MTV’s rules during filming. “You can’t leave without a film crew with you..If you want to leave, you have to tell them an hour before so they can get ready,” shares the guidette. “There are no cell phones, no TV, and you can’t read. You can’t write or pass notes. You can’t listen to music, you can’t do anything. It’s kind of like being in jail for two months—and people wonder why all we do is drink! It’s because there’s nothing else to do! It passes the time and makes it fun. If you’re sober the whole time, you will go insane and kill yourself.” That sounds a tad extreme, but that’s a meatball for you!
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?
Get your pickle jokes ready, folks! It’s looking like the rumors are true and Jersey Shorestar Snooki is pregnant, despite vehemently denying it. We reported yesterday that Snooki’s motivation for hiding the pregnancy was because she had promised the exclusive scoop to USWeekly, including a cover.
And according to a new report by TMZ , Snooki had other reasons for wanting to keep her pregnancy a secret. See, Snooki is also bit superstitious and didn’t want reveal the pregnancy before the three month mark, as many women do. Snooki was already pregnant when she visited Sirius / XM Radio at the beginning of February and had to answer questions about her pregnancy rumors, during which, she denied being preggos and pretended to be offended.
The official announcement is expected to come from the Snooki camp very soon. In the meantime, below are new photos of Snooki taken this week which seem to be showing a baby bump!
This will definitely change the direction of Snooki’s spin-off with JWoww, which began shooting in Jersey City this week. In an interview with US magazine, Snooki may have given us a small hint about her condition when she mentioned there would be less of the non-stop partying viewers have watched her indulge in, on Jersey Shore. She explains, “We want it to be different than Jersey Shore, so it’s not always going to at the club, drinking and partying. It’s the first time I’m going to be on my own for real. You’ve only seen the party side of us.”
If the rumors are right, the side of Snooki we’ll see is her maternal one, shopping for Liz Lange and heading to Lamaze class. One indication that the rumors might be right on target is Snooki’s unusual silence on her Twitter page where she usually posts many mundane updates a day. She may be keeping quiet until her big reveal.
