MTV has announced that they are cancelling the popular reality TV Show the Jersey Shore after its 6th and final season.  The show has been a cultural phenomenon regardless of your opinion of it but recently ratings have slipped a bit and Nicole Polizzi aka Snooki now is a mother. Sooner or later something had to give and the cast couldn’t keep up their hard partying way forever. Could they?

Share your thoughts in the poll below.

Snooki and JWoww – A first look video

Filed under: Hoboken,Jersey Shore,Snooki — Tags: , , , , , — TheBoken @ 2:40 PM

Snooki and JWoww’s spinoff show of the Jersey Shore now has a first look video published by MTV. After wasting a few minutes of my life that I will never get back I am glad the show was in Jersey City and not Hoboken.

Here is a quote from the LA Times about the series:

“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 summer series. “You’re going to see a very different side to both women — not just Snooki but Jenni [JWoww], who has a real maternal side.” He added, perhaps with some understatement. “It’s a whole new way to look at pregnancy.”

Editorial Comment: Imagaine that. Snooki giving Americans a whole new way to look at pregnancy. Time Magazine should make her Woman of the Year! (sarcasm off).

Feel free to chime in your thoughts whether or not you are glad MTV did not film in Hoboken in the comments below…

Snooki on Good Morning America: We Still Love Hoboken

image

Snooki and JWoww were on Good Morning America this morning addressing the Snooki pregnancy rumors (she’s not and doesn’t appreciate being called fat) and talking about Hoboken. Snooki did state that she was disappointed that Mayor Dawn Zimmer didn’t sit down and meet her before making a decision, but expressed her continued love for Hoboken.  Snooki said it’s Hoboken’s loss and they are looking for a town that wants them to shoot the spinoff of the Jersey Shore.

The Hoboken discussion starts 2 minutes into the video. Check it out below….

Take a deep breath people, it is not the Mayan Prophecy or Armageddon Snooki is not pregnant, with child, “knocked up” as previously reported on multiple media outlets. The human gene pool is at least safe for a little while longer. Just kidding. TheBoken.comdoes not want to come accross as mean spirited so please take it as only a joke. Here is an excerpt from E- Online on the rumor:

“So false!

Snooki’s rep tells E! News that there is no truth to the rumors and that the MTV star is not pregnant.

The tabloid seemed to pin the rumor on the fact that Snooki was telling friends she had a “big announcement” coming soon. Well, it seems like her baby may have been simply of the professional variety, possibly to do with her Jersey Shore spinoff with pal JWoww.”

Now to the punchline: Hoboken Mayor Danw Zimmer may have knocked Snooki out from filming in Hoboken but Snooki is certainly not knocked up (for now).
