Rumors have been swirling since January that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is pregnant with her boyfriend Jionni LaValle, who appeared in several episodes of Jersey Shore. Even though Snooki vehemently denied the rumors several times, including last week on ABC’s Good Morning America, those rumors have been put to rest recently with several media outlets confirming her pregnancy.
According to The New York Post, the reality star has shopped many celebrity news magazines for a deal to announce her pregnancy to the world. Snooki allegedly has made a deal with UsWeekly to make the announcement on their front cover very soon.
The bigger question here is what’s going to happen to the Jersey Shore spin-off starring Snooki and her best Shore friend Jenni “J-Woww” Farley?
MTV is in crisis mode right now trying to figure that out. If Snooki is indeed pregnant, and sources say she’s about 3 months along, this will heavily impact the upcoming MTV show, possibility meaning cancelling the show before it even starts. As of now, the network is trying to hide the pregnancy as long as they can until they come up with a solution, because a pregnant Snooki will impact the direction of the show. If Snooki is pregnant, there is no way that she’ll be able to be the Snooki we all know and (possibly) love.
The new show is supposed to be centered around Snooki and J-Woww’s relationship, their new friends, and the duo living together in Jersey City. With this sudden announcement, there’s no word on what will happen to the upcoming series, which just recently started shooting.
If Snooki is pregnant, congratulations to her and Jionni. MTV has to look at this situation as the glass half-full. Even Snooks is pregnant, ditch J-Woww as a co-star, add Jionni as a main character, chronicle the entire pregnancy, and MTV will have their very own “Kardashian” reality series starring Snooki!
I’m pretty sure there’s a demographic that’ll watch Snooki take care of a newborn baby.
