‘Jersey Shore’: Pregnant Snooki angry over Jessica Simpson rumor

Snooki is proclaiming innocence.

Mrs. Carter: Is one pregnant really star going out of her way to bash another? Don’t believe everything you read out there.

Following some recent tabloid rumors suggesting that Snooki publicly dissed “Fashion Star” mentor Jessica Simpson for getting so “big” during her pregnancy, the “Jersey Shore” staple (whose new series “Snooki & JWoww” is premiering on MTV June 21) took to her Twitter account to try and clear the air:

“I NEVER dissed Jessica Simpson you weird tabloids, get over it with your ‘pregnant war’ articles. I love the girl and her hot ass bump.”

Just in case you were curious about the actual context of what happened here, Snooki actually said in the initial story that she would “die” if she was ever as big as Simpson was — but this was not meant as an insult at all. Rather, Snooki was just trying to be funny and riff on the fact that she is not even five feet tall. (She makes jokes frequently using the words “I Would Die” in some shape or form.)

Just in case you have not seen the official trailer yet for Snooki’s new reality show, you can check it out below — and one of the most notable moments from it is seeing the moment when she tells JWoww that she is in fact expecting.
