Fans of ballroom dancing and poorly applied spray tan rejoiced at Friday’s news that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars. Sadly, some news is just too good to be true.
“It’s 100 percent false…she’s not doing it,” revealed a source close to the situation. ABC has yet to comment on the rumors.
Snooki never issued a statement either, but the news that she was appearing on the show never seemed anything less than entirely believable. She seems to have a lot of time on her hands when she’s not filming Jersey Shore, and we already know she’ll do anything for a buck (professional wrestling, pistachio commercials, etc). Maybe the rumors and the excitement that circulated around the web will lead her to contact the producers and show the world that drunken dwarfs can tango with the best of them.
