Team Snooki (And Fetus)

Snooki's pregnancy was just announced, and I'm over it already. Not because I don't love her (I do), but because the world wants to judge her, Jionni, and her unborn baby just from the version of Snooki they see on television.

Recently, Emilio (Snooki's ex) was quoted as saying he hopes she miscarries. That is a horrible thing to say, but at least he knows her... Facebook and Twitter has been blowing up with the same anti-Snooki backlash. People who have never met this woman are praying for a miscarriage and comparing her due date to the Mayan calendar's end of the world. The end of the world, really? They're saying she's unfit to be a mother because she's a slut and a drunken mess.

First of all, everything you know about her is from a MTV reality show. Let's recall a former MTV reality show, The Hills, whose cast members basically confirmed that it was partly scripted. Reality television is far from real, so if you're judging her based on the fact she's drunk on TV, I'm judging you based on the fact that you're an asshole.

But besides that...

People grow up. Especially when put in situations where they're responsible for a child's life. I've witnessed real life party girls from high school become great mothers, but you didn't come here to browse my yearbook, so let's discuss celebrity bad girls turned mothers.

3. Madonna

The Queen of Pop is also the Queen of Scandal, but since she's given birth, she seemed to have done a lot of growing up.

2. Angelina Jolie

This bitch used to carry around blood and make out with her brother. Now she is proud mother to six children with Brad Pitt.

1. Nicole Richie
Teenage drug abuse, eating disorders, and numerous DUIs haunt Nicole Richie's past, but now she has two children with Joel Madden and is the co-founder of The Richie Madden Children's Foundation.

Pre-pregnancy, you've never heard any of those mentioned above talking about how much they wanted children. However, Snooki talks about it often, so there is no doubt in my mind that she genuinely wants to be a good mother. Is she ready? Honestly, is anyone "ready" until they actually have a baby? Financially, she's fine. Maturity-wise, she could probably use some growing up, but as I said before... perhaps that's where Baby Polizzi comes in.


  1. I think Snooki is her character for Jersey Shore. However, in real life, I think Nicole will be a great mom. You can tell on the show (other than her drunk side) that she has a huge heart and is a giving person (hello, the bike she bought Ron!). I am totally team Snooki and I can't wait to see her little meatball baby.
