Perhaps you heard the terrifying rumors earlier this month that Snooki was with child: She denied them, but now the New York Post insists that the Jersey Shore star is indeed three months pregnant. Not only that, but Snooks (whom the Post kindly refers to as "trashy") wants to be "the next Kourtney Kardashian," sources say, and is planning to make her big announcement on the cover of Us Weekly. The father is reportedly boyfriend Jionni LaValle.
"MTV went into crisis mode after they found out," says a source. "They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction" of a Jersey Shore spinoff Snooki just started filming with Jenni "JWoww" Farley. The Post notes that on set, Snooki has been seen "carrying large bags to hide her belly." But TMZ offers up a different reason for Snooki's lie: She subscribes to the idea that you shouldn't reveal a pregnancy before the third month. Now that that's past, brace yourself for an Us Weekly announcement any day. (Read more Snooki stories.)
