New Year's Eve ball drop for Snooki changes venue

Look's like this New Year's Eve, Snooki won't be having a ball.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, plans to have the "Jersey Shore" star drop out of a ball in Times Square for New York City's biggest holiday celebration have had to be scrapped. A statement obtained by THR said the request to have the petite star pull the stunt "came too late and was too impractical to fit in to our outdoor events," co-producers of the  Times Square New Year's Eve event said.

The idea was the brainchild of MTV, which had made it clear that the ball used would not have been "the actual New Year's ball in Times Square" made famous over the years, but rather a separate one.

3:00 p.m. UPDATE – MTV has confirmed that the Snooki ball drop will now occur in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

“We love our Times Square home and while we're disappointed there won't be a Snooki ball drop there, she cannot be denied," said an MTV statement. " So we're taking a road trip to the place where it all began, Seaside Heights, and droppin' it all there."

The event will be part of the network's "New Year's Bash 2011."

    This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. I'm so disgusted that MTV would promote this and ruin nye with this garbage. Even worse is all the response that this event will get, over the critical, newsworthy stories that affect our country. Furthermore, I can't believe that a journalist, someone who earned advanced post secondary degrees, is being forced to write articles about this nonsense (as I can only hope it wasn't done by choice).

    I saw an episode where Snooki was driving a large SUV. I noticed because she is so short, she had her seat so far up, her whole body was mere inches from the steering wheel. If she has a wreck and that airbag deploys, that will be the end of her I'm sure and she would qualify for the Darwin Awards. Someone needs to tell her to get a clue . . . and some brake and accelerator extenders.

      I blame Palin – she made being an idiot both fashionable and profitable to a degree that far exceeds that of her predecessors.

    This woman is hideous in looks and personality and has absolutely no talent. Why there is any interest in her is a mystery to me other than she is like watching a slow motion train wreck. The sooner she dissappears from the public view, the better.

      Marc, I could not agree with you more!!! I cannot understand WHY I keep seeing her face. She looks like Elvira, mistress of the dark. Only the short and fat version. And no personality. Just go away already.

      Its good to be white in America. Where else can a no-talent, inbred, crass, lewd, low IQ land you at the top of the newspaper headlines (e.g., Sarah Palin) and millions of dollars?

    Who comes up with these ridiculously stupid ideas? Its even worse that there must actually have been a meeting at Mtv where a bunch of yesbags sat around in a board room patting each other on the back about how brilliant this idea is. Just plain stupid.

      There is no way this could have been MTV's brainchild. They have no brain.

      The fake ring covers three of her fingers from knuckle to the second joint.

      Plus that black plastic surrounded by the sparkly glass draws attention to the ring making the hand look small and out of proportion.

      CNN changed the picture, she was doing some type of Seig Heil salute earlier, and the angle of her hand to the camera made it look like it was hideously deformed.

      I'm sure her weight wasn't the issue. Although, I am still a little confused as to why she's even apart of the "New Year's Eve Celebration". What exactly is her talent?

      I'm sure her fat @ss would not fit, but they wanted to be nice to the mentally challenged girl and tell her that they could not fit it in to the schedule.
