Here we go, I guess. It can only get worse from here, so we may as well sit back and let the shitshow commence.

This is a photo that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi posted to her Twitter feed, showing off her side of beef and her unimpressive engagement ring. I mean, come on. I thought it’d be bright pink and purple-glittery, strobe-lighting to the beat of good-ass fist-pumping music and be commissioned by Ed Hardy. Sad. Outright disappointing, if you ask me.

Sources say that the ring set Jionni Snooki back $55k and is an unremarkable princess-cut diamond.

Snooki recently posted this to her Twitter account, which only makes me know, deep down in the cockles of my heart, that she’s going to be one amazing mother:

“When my baby can hear sound I’m gonna blast Dobenbeck, Ercola, Medina, Kaskade & Tiesto.”

And before you went nuts and thought for a second that she was talking classical artists like Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, or Mozart, she’s talking DJs, guys. DJs.

Nothing but the best for this kid, huh?

MTV Doesn’t Want The Situation or Snooki Anymore

From TMZ:

With Snooki pregnant and The Situation getting sober, the people behind “Jersey Shore” are FREAKED the show will lose its sex-crazed alcohol-fueled edge — so they’re looking to phase the two out … in favor of newer, wilder castmates.

MTV released a statement earlier this week — following news Sitch was seeking substance abuse treatment — claiming the network expects the entire cast to return for Season 6 … but sources close to 495 Productions tell TMZ, the production company is currently looking for new talent.

According to sources, 495 desperately wants to keep things fresh — and folding in new castmates will help transition the show into a new generation … while still keeping old fans hooked.

We’re told 495 plans to limit Snooki and The Situation’s roles on the new season — giving new cast members more screen time instead.

The show is set to begin filming this summer. 495 had no comment.

Well that’s good news, isn’t it? Especially in light of my recent concerns that MTV would be glamorizing The Situation’s imminent relapse and stressing Snooki out during her pregnancy? Good news, right? Well, it’s a double-edged sword, really. It’s great that MTV won’t be contributing to the inevitable in both cases, but it’s frankly f-cking scary that they’re seeking out a “new generation” of guidos and guidettes, because seriously, these people need to be stopped. I mean honestly, how many lives need to be ruined by bad decisions influenced by drugs and alcohol and music you can fist-pump to? Whether or not Snooki and The Situation would have ended up in their situations if Jersey Shore had never been a thing is neither here nor there – they are in their situations as a direct result of the hype around their reality show, and this is how things turned out. How many people really need to be brought into the fold for the sake of ratings? How many more weak-minded and weak-willed people in desperate need of attention need to be exploited for public consumption and entertainment?

Moreover, what’s going to happen to Snooki and The Situation now? Their careers have been more important to them than anything else in their lives for the past few years, and now that it’s being taken away … I don’t know, guys. I just don’t see this playing out very well on anybody’s end, no matter what stance you take.

Jersey Shore Will Continue Complete With a Pregnant Snooki

I know, I gagged a little writing that headline, so I can imagine how it must feel to have that bomb dropped on you with no prior warning.

MTV reports that the entire cast of Jersey Shore is returning for a sixth season (… I know, what the hell, right?), and that ‘entire cast’ thing includes the pregnant Nicole Polizzi. When asked about the whole pregnancy thing, MTV had this to say:

“Being a baby mama doesn’t mean you can’t have some fun in the sun. While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same.”

Oh! OK then. I suppose a baby raised in said hilarity and family dysfunction will turn out completely alright. It’s not as if the kid’ll be surprised by the f-ckery after it knows any better. An expert on the subject (he’s a “pop culture expert” and a professor at Syracuse University) spoke to the Daily News and claimed that the show this year will be extra-interesting, especially when it comes to finding out whether or not Snooki will be engaging in her trademark disgusting behaviors while she’s pregnant:

“It changes the dynamic. There are behaviors I suppose she’s not going to engage in, and if she does, it’sgoing to seem reprehensible. When Lucy got pregnant, the show was called ‘I Love Lucy’. It’s not called ‘Snooki Shore,’ it’s ‘Jersey Shore’, [and] there are some who can take up that narrative slack.”

Seriously speaking, though, how is it OK for this to happen, really? While I’m sure (or at least, I hope, anyway) that Snooki isn’t going to be out ’til all hours of the morning sipping those “non-alcoholic” beverages in shitty clubs on the shore, how is the constant stress and drama going to sit with a lady who’s gestating a fetus? Or does that not matter as much as a regular paycheck or, you know, ratings for a stupid show that no one but its E-list cast is going to remember in ten years?

The thing is, despite her previous protests, Snooki probably won’t lay off the partying, because it’s what she does. She doesn’t know any different. Fox News reported that girlfriend was out into the wee hours of the morning living it up with J Woww in Cancun:

The “Jersey Shore’s” hard-partying meatball hasn’t let a bun in the oven slow her down one bit. Polizzi was spotted heading out for an evening of partying at the wee hour of 1 am on Wednesday night in the only place more depraved than the Jersey Shore—Cancun.

Snooki is in the Mexican party mecca with her “Shore” co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley, filming episodes for their upcoming spin-off show on MTV.

Reports earlier this week said that the pair were heading south of the border to stay at the Cancun Beach Palace in order for Snooki to get some much needed rest and relaxation after the media whirlwind surrounding her pregnancy bombshell.

Yes, let’s head to Cancun (during SPRING BREAK) for some much-needed rest and relaxation. Sure! Awesome idea. Also, Fox News referred to Snooki as a “hard-partying meatball.” You know, even though I don’t agree with most of the political stuff Fox peddles, I positively LOVE THEM for coining the phrase “hard-partying meatball.” Is there anything more fitting? You know, aside from other things I’ve read online like ‘funk-faced warthog’ or ‘diseased Oompa Loompa’?
