I Don't REALLY Wish Death Upon Snooki's Fetus
3/5/2012 2:25 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Snooki's ex-BF Emilio Masella says he's just a schmuck who misspoke when he wished a "miscarriage" on the MTV star ... but says he still HOPES TO GOD she's not really pregnant.
Emilio just called in to "TMZ Live" to explain himself ... saying, "What I meant by the statement was that I hope she doesn’t have the child. I just hope the test was wrong ... I think she's too young. I don’t think this kid is in it for her."
He continued, "If she's pregnant with this kid I guess I can't associate with her."

I TOLD You to Keep
Your Dirty Mouth SHUT
3/5/2012 10:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Before Snooki's ex-boyfriend wished death upon her unborn fetus, the "Jersey Shore" star took preemptive measures to make SURE he never badmouthed her -- in the form of a nasty legal threat -- but clearly, the guy wasn't intimidated.
TMZ broke the story ... ex-BF Emilio Masella said he hopes Snooki "has a miscarriage" to save herself from a pregnancy she's not ready for.
But here's the thing -- a month before he made that comment, he told another media outlet he could easily be Snooki's baby daddy too ... implying he recently slept with her.
The comment didn't sit so well with Snooki's lawyers, who responded with a cease and desist letter on February 1st -- threatening to sue if he continued to badmouth Snooki OR her pregnancy to the media.
Her lawyers were pretty clear -- "Demand is hereby made that you cease and desist from making any additional public statements regarding Ms. Polizzi that could in any way be taken to be offensive by her."
A month later ... Emilio told us, he hoped Snooki has a miscarriage. Pretty offensive, no? We're told Snooki's lawyers are currently reviewing their legal options.
I Hope She Miscarries
3/5/2012 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
Snooki's ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella doesn't think the world is ready for Snooki spawn ... including Snooki herself -- telling TMZ, "I hope for her sake ... not to be rude or anything ... but I hope she has a miscarriage."
Emilio tells us he does believe Snooki will eventually be a good mother -- but insists ... there's no way in fist-pumping hell she's ready for it now.
According to Emilio, Snooki has always been flippant about having kids ... and never really grasped the gravity of being pregnant -- "When I was with her, she said she wanted twins. She would always say 'Let’s have twins.'"
Emilio says, "I would def recommend her to get a paternity test to see who the father is because I’m sure there are other subjects" -- adding, "Vinny could easily be the father."
As for how Snooki and BF Jionni's relationship will pan out on her new spin-off show -- Emilio thinks the two will get married ... but Snook will "pull a Kim Kardashian."
Emilio says, Snooks is "going to have the baby and break up with him right after."
Cease and desist letters don't scare Emilio -- turns out Snooki's lawyers secretly threatened to sue him LAST MONTH if he ever offended Snooki in the media again ... clearly, he wasn't intimidated.

The Situation is NOT Snooki's Baby Daddy
3/2/2012 9:45 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The Situation is definitely NOT to blame for the mini-guido baking inside of Snooki's womb ... this according to Sitch's BFF.
"The Unit" -- aka Jonny Manfre -- just called in to “Big Poppa” Gary Spears at KISS-FM in NY ... and said there is absolutely NO baby daddy controversy ... despite the fact Snooki allegedly got all smooshy with Sitch in the past.
"It's not Situation's baby ... I'll tell you that much ... I would assume it's Jionni's baby." Unit is referring to Snook's BF, Jionni Lavalle.
The MTV star adds, "Whatever happened in the past, happened in the past. If these people love each other and they're willing to get past each other's skeletons in the closet ... then great."

Baby Stores Put on Snooki Alert

We're told 495 asked Bambi for permission to shoot some scenes inside the store -- and after some initial hesitation ... the owner agreed.
Forget boozy nightclubs and bar fights -- mama Snooki's new "Jersey Shore" spin-off will be all about the guido growing in her uterus ... in fact, one Jersey City baby store has already been contacted by producers about shooting on location.
The owner of Bambi Baby tells TMZ, someone from 495 Productions -- the company behind "Jersey Shore" -- reached out to the baby store within the last few weeks ... right around the time Snooki was adamantly denying she was pregnant.
It's unclear when shooting is scheduled to begin -- but one thing's for sure, the only thing Snooki will be smush-smushing on her new show ... is baby food.
Pregnant & Covering Up
2/29/2012 11:00 AM PST BY Johnny Lopez
Wearing a loose fitting top for two, newly pregnant Snooki tried to shield herself from the rain underneath her coat as she filmed her new reality show in Jersey City on Wednesday.
As TMZ reported earlier, Snooks originally lied about being with child because she didn't want to jinx anything prior to being three months pregnant. Now that she's passed that threshold, an official announcement is expected at any moment.
With no baby bump spotted yet, the 24-year-old should get ready for an even bigger downpour ... of press.

As for the Opie & Anthony interview (below) -- Snooki said the media outlet that reported the story is just like one of the bullies who terrorized her in high school ... and she has a message for the offender ... "I hate you."
