If you remember back to when “Jersey Shore” was shooing its sixth season earlier this summer, then you probably remember a certain photo that was going around of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi carrying around what was a case of beer in a stroller. Of course, the idea of this — especially when it came to Snooki being pregnant — set off a firestorm of criticism across the internet. Snooki is the sort of person that is routinely criticized largely because of who she is, and for that reason the media is ready to pounce on her even faster than they are some other celebrities. (It’s the Kim Kardashian effect, more or less.)
So what does the reality star have to say about all of this? In a new interview with The Hollywood Reporter, she tries to brush it all off in saying that she was surprised that so many people were upset about the photo to begin with — especially when they knew that she was not drinking and they did not ask for the context for the photo:
“I don’t know why that picture’s a big deal … We were having a bonfire and everyone was carrying the tables and the chairs. Obviously I cannot lift anything like that, because I’m pregnant, so I decided to use my stroller and everyone put everything that they wanted [in it]. Drinks and stuff. And then I strolled it down to the beach.
“Obviously I wasn’t drinking it. People just take me way too seriously.”
Snooki at the moment is promoting her spin-off series “Snooki & JWoww,” and is widely expected to give birth to a son named Lorenzo at the end of next month. As for “Jersey Shore,” season 6 is expected to begin at some point in the fall, and she will have the rare opportunity fo watch herself pregnant just weeks after giving birth.
