Snooki’s BABY — gets a reality series

This satirical, fictional story is part of the April 1, 2012, edition of reality blurred. Happy April Fool’s Day.

TMZ has learned …. the baby of Snooki–who’s on Jersey Shore, set in New Jersey….on the shore, will be the STAR of a reality show.

Sources say ………………… that ………….. MTV immediately signed the fetus up for a deal worth 6 figures. Snooki told friends that she didn’t even know her unborn child had an agent!

We’re told the baby– will be filmed by until it’s born by Deadliest Catch and Whale Wars camera operators…the only people in Hollywood who’ve taken their cameras into such a scary & dangerous place.

Snooki’s kid wanted final cut on EACH episode AND its mom can only be in one episode. A contract obtained by TMZ had words on it.

Good for the baby….if only all celebrities we covered were as smart as it and that famous KONY dude we just read about on our Facebook twitter.

Texts to Snooki’s uterus weren’t returned.
