Snooki Fights Back Against Bogus Claim That She’s Drinking & Dieting While Pregnant – Exclusive
Is Snooki drinking and dieting while she’s pregnant? A report surfaced earlier this week that claimed that the expecting Jersey Shore star is engaging in some unhealthy behavior like dieting and drinking while pregnant. However, Snooki’s rep tells Wetpaint Entertainment in a statement that the rumors are simply not true.
“From the minute Nicole found out she was expecting, she has done everything she can to ensure she has a healthy pregnancy, including cautiously waiting to confirm the pregnancy to her fans,” Snooki’s rep said.
“She is 100% focused on the health and wellbeing of her baby and is excited for the future. Anyone who says anything to the contrary is erroneous and unfounded.”
Regarding claims that Snooki drank alcohol while she was denying pregnancy rumors (but actually several months along) on Watch What Happens Live back in February, the rep said that Snooki didn’t actually down any booze.
“When she was surprisingly asked to drink an alcoholic beverage on live television, she pretended to take a small sip since she was not yet ready to confirm her news and she sticks by that decision.”
Snooki admitted to drinking heavily on New Year’s Eve, right before she found out that she is pregnant. Because of that wild night, Snooki wanted to wait to see that the baby would be OK before announcing her pregnancy to the public. (Drinking heavily during the first 8 weeks of pregnancy can sometimes lead to miscarriage.) However, Snooki has sworn in previous interviews that she is quit drinking completely since she confirmed that she is pregnant. Even her fellow castmate Ronnie commented that Snooki has really matured into a responsible sober mom-to-be since she found out that she is expecting.
Face it everyone: Drunk and irresponsible Snooki is a thing of the past.
