Snooki reportedly using bags and loose clothing to hide pregnancy
By Reality TV World staff, 03/01/2012
Snooki appears to be resorting to using large handbags and loose-fitting clothing to hide her reported pregnancy.
Jersey Shore star Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi -- who has remained unusually silent since new reports that she is pregnant surfaced yesterday -- was spotted carrying a large handbag and wearing a loose-fitting top while out in public in Jersey City, NJ on Thursday, People reported.
"There's no truth to the reports," her representative told MTV News later that same day.
"Does that mean they're calling me fat?" Snooki reportedly said during an interview with the Opie and Anthony radio show on February 1. "That means that I have a belly then."
"I definitely do want kids, but I'm not pregnant... being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I'm not," she added during a separate February 2 appearance on Good Morning America.
However, according to a new New York Post report published Wednesday, Snooki -- who is currently filming her upcoming Jersey Shore spinoff with Jenni "JWoww" Farley in New Jersey -- falsely denied the pregnancy and is now about three months along.
Snooki's representative declined comment when contacted by the Post, which reported the Jersey Shore star hopes "to bankroll her mommy-to-be status into becoming 'the next Kourtney Kardashian'" and has already landed a deal to announce her pregnancy on the cover of Us Weekly.
Snooki's no-comment stance has continued since the Post report was published. And in an uncharacteristic move, Us Weekly has also not reported on the now-widespread pregnancy reports on its own website.
