Snooki's New Year's Eve ball drop in Times Square officially a no-go

Posted on


Image Credit: Bob Charlotte/PR PhotosIt was too good (or bad) to believe: Jersey Shore star Snooki will not ring in the New Year on MTV from inside a ball descending at midnight in Times Square (first reported by PopEater). In a statement to EW, the Times Square Alliance and Countdown Entertainment, co-producers of Times Square New Year’s Eve, confirm the stunt is a no-go: “It was never intended or requested for Snooki to be in the actual New Year’s Eve Ball in Times Square. The request to have her in a separate ball on a set-back roof came too late and was too impractical to fit in to our outdoor events.” MTV has not responded to EW’s request for comment on whether it’s seeking a new location for its ball, or if the idea itself has been dropped.
