Snooki and JWOWW on New 1-Hour Format and Baby Lorenzo's TV Debut (Video)
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi may have given birth to baby Lorenzo in September, but it’s all impending motherhood on Tuesday’s season two premiere of Snooki & JWOWW.
“Once he’s born, he’s in the show a lot,” Snooki tells THR. “He’s a part of my life now, he is my life, so you’re gonna see him a lot.”
And while fans already have seen the first photos of Lorenzo, thanks to a splashy People cover, they’ll have to wait until Jan. 29 to see his actual birth. The wait will be well worthwhile, says Snooki.
“There’s a few pictures out there, but with the show you see his birth. You see his first few weeks of life that no one has ever seen,” she says. “I haven’t even really seen it, because it was just such a dream to me, so I’m going to actually be watching it with everyone.”
Asked whether the tabloid presence in their lives detracts from the novelty of the show, Snooki adds: “Instead of pictures or reading about it, you’re gonna see it. So I think that’s so much more than any tabloid could give.” Viewers will also get to witness Jenni "JWOWW" Farley's engagement this season, though the bride-to-be previously described beau Roger Mathew's skydiving proposal to InTouch.
"I look over and see a hand-written sign: 'Jenni, will you ... ' and then I turned to him and freaked out," Farley said in September. "The whole time I'm screaming, 'What are you doing? What's going on?' He's like, 'I want to spend the rest of my life with you! Will you allow me to?'"
Another new addition to season two is an extra 30 minutes of airtime, bringing each episode up to one hour – a “huge honor,” says JWOWW.
“The storylines play out so much better,” she says of the new format. Adds Snooki, “A lot of stuff goes down when we film, so with the first season I was like, ‘Oh my god, they didn’t see anything.’ There was so much that went on and you didn’t see anything. Hopefully, with this hour now, you get to see more of what actually happens.”
Snooki & JWOWW airs Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET/PT on MTV. For more from the duo, including hints at which celebrity pal will be making a cameo in the premiere, watch the video above.
