On Thursday night, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is finally going to have her opportunity to shine as a series lead on her new MTV show “Snooki & JWOWW” — but it’s not even clear at the moment, though, that she is going to be able to watch it.
Like JWoww and many of the other famous GTL-loving Italian-Americans in Seaside Heights, Snooki is still in the process of filming season 6 of “Jersey Shore,” and has been spotted out pretty much every day this week. Really, the biggest surprise for her this season, though, is that we have no idea what sort of storyline she has going on outside of her pregnancy. While season 3 was filming, we already knew about her arrest; meanwhile, in season 4 we knew about her relationship drama (which we found out during season 5 taping was no big deal at all). This time around, the only real storylines to leak have involved Deena Cortese getting arrested and a massive fight breaking out in the popular local bar Bamboo. Ronnie Magro has already had a police report filed against him, but it’s not clear whether or not any charges will be coming his way.
Snooki is now six months into her pregnancy, and timed the filming of the show perfectly so that she would still be able to get around Seaside Heights and enjoy herself before coming close to giving birth. She is living in a house next door to where the rest of the cast sleeps, but still sees them just about as regularly as someone can given the separate living quarters.
Check back late Thursday, as we’ll have a closer look at the “Snooki & JWOWW” premiere — for now, though, just know that the pint-size reality star is still going strong in Seaside even on the same day that her new show is starting up.
