Snooki’s spinoff with JWoww wrapped filming in March but it was what happened before filming started that really had producers in a tizzy — Snooki got pregnant. The two ladies were due to film a Jersey Shore-based reality show that would chronicle their lives as single ladies living on their own.
Snooki had different plans. She and Jionni LaValle were getting serious, and we mean serious! He even put a ring on her finger this past February. She officially announced her engagement and pregnancy in early March much to producer’s dismay, at least at first.
The L.A. Times Show Tracker reports that the network believes that even though a pregnancy certainly wasn’t what they had in mind, they may be sitting on a gold mine. They could be right. Jersey Shore ratings have been decreasing since season 4, hinting that America could be getting tired of seeing the same people partying at the same places.
“It’s a very different show — it isn’t two single pals living in Jersey City anymore,” MTV President Stephen Friedman told Show Tracker of the upcoming spinoff titled, “Snooki & JWoww”. “You’re going to see a very different side to both women — not just Snooki but Jenni [JWoww], who has a real maternal side. It’s a whole new way to look at pregnancy.”
Jersey Shore fans will be thrilled to hear that during JWoww and Snooki’s spinoff, viewers will get to see her cast mates’ reactions to the news. No word on which of her co-stars will make appearances — you’ll have to tune in and see!
