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."
