Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi, star of MTV reality show "Jersey Shore," is remaining silent regarding recent rumors that say she is pregnant, weeks after denying a tabloid report.
E! Online said on Wednesday, February 29 that the 24-year old is expecting her first baby, with boyfriend Jionni LaValle, and quoted an unnamed source as saying she is "three or four months along." The New York Post said that day that Snooki has been pregnant for "roughly three months" and has been shopping a story to celebrity magazines.
"We have no comment," Snooki's spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com, when asked about the matter.
The tabloid Star magazine reported several weeks ago that Snooki is expecting her first child. She denied the report on shows such as ABC's "Good Morning America" and "Live! With Kelly" and also told Fox411: "When I first heard it this morning, I thought everyone is thinking I'm fat or something," Like, am I gaining weight again? I'm not pregnant, so am I fat now? ...There's a lot of rumors."
The Star magazine article quoted an "insider" who said that the plot of her spin-off series with "Jersey Shore" co-star Jenni "JWoww" Farley was being reworked to accommodate the pregnancy. Snooki sparked further speculation when she Tweeted about her "cravings."
"Late night craving...yogurt hits the fricken spot ! Mmmmmm," Snooki wrote on January 24.
Snooki expressed her frustration with the press on Wednesday, Tweeting, "Done with press for the day! What a day in the twilight zone lmao what the hell?!"
Snooki recently trimmed down her 4 foot, 9 inch frame to 102 pounds and told fans in December, "So happy I'm at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can't wait to tone up hardcore."
The reality star revealed in 2010 that she had battled anorexia and bulimia in high school, eventually weighing only 80 pounds after eating nothing but salad and a cracker a day.
Snooki recently rang in the New Year in Las Vegas with LaValle. She said that she tried on a $500,000 engagement ring over the holidays, but her boyfriend made her take it off.
"Jersey Shore" depicts the lives of party-loving, self-proclaimed "Guidos and Guidettes" in New Jersey and contains censored swearing and sexual or scantily clad images. Polizzi is one of the show's breakout stars and reportedly earns $100,000 per episode.
The fifth season finale is set to air on March 15 at 10 p.m. ET and its reunion show will be broadcast a week later, on March 22, an MTV spokesperson told OnTheRedCarpet.com. Filming on both has been completed.
The spin-off series starring Snooki and JWoww does not yet have a title or premiere date. The new show will follow the friends as they move in together.
MTV announced in April 2011 that they would also launch a spin-off following the life of "Jersey Shore" cast member "Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio. That series debuts on March 29.
