Nicole Polizzi (aka Snooki), the Jersey Shore star, has finally revealed that she's pregnant and engaged. Life seems pretty rosy for Snooki off-screen, with a bun in the oven and (allegedly) a $55,000 engagement ring on her wedding finger. On screen, though, things are a bit more turbulent for Snooki, as the latest episode of Jersey Shore revealed.
As the crack started to show in the once-tight Jersey Shore gang, The Situation decided to throw a spanner into the works of Snooki's relationship with her then-boyfriend-now-fiancé Jionni LaValle. The Situation (real name Mike Sorrentino) revealed to Jionni that he and Snooki had "hooked up" together in the past. The Situation said to Snooki "I'm sure in a couple weeks we'll make up and be friends" but, according to the Daily mail, Snooki's response was less than forgiving, as she said to him "I want you to go die and rot in a hole." The latest episode of the show also showed the gang away from their natural habitat of bars and nightclubs; camping in the woods. Off screen, though, Snooki's real-life pregnancy drama has overshadowed the storylines on the show, which was filmed some time ago.
MTV announced today (March 9, 2012) that Snooki's engagement ring cost Jionni an impressive $55,000 from the New Jersey jewellery store B&B Jewelers. The store's owner Ben Bekdas confirmed that Jionni had had a lot of input into the design of the ring, taking into account the comments that Snooki had made when they visited the store for her birthday.
