Amidst all of the news about Jersey Shore star Snooki's pregnancy with, and engagement to, Jionni LaValle, a possibly even more bizarre story has been developing.

Snooki's awful ex, Emilio Masella, has tried to use Snooki's pregnancy to get back into the spotlight win her back. He's publicly hoped she has a miscarriage ("for her sake"), stated that he wants to be her baby daddy, and talked about their "future," as if they have any chance whatsoever of getting back together.

Now Snooki's lawyers, who already issued the guido a cease and desist letter about a month ago, are contemplating taking legal action against Emilio again.

Today, Emilio fought back through TMZ, saying, "If they want to sue me for being my own person, that’s screwed up... How can they sue me for stating how I feel? I don’t get why they have it out for me."

Uh, maybe because you said their client should have a miscarriage, Emilio. That rarely goes over well with anyone.

Emilio is not only flippant about the potential lawsuit — he's still sure he could get Snooki back. "My wish is to sit down and talk with her for 5 minutes, no cameras, face-to-face, and have a conversation with Nicole not Snooki. I know she'd fall in love with me again."

Sure, dude. Whatever helps you sleep at night.
