Jersey Shore star Snooki wasn’t among the Dancing With the Stars Season 13 cast when it was revealed earlier this week and now she’s explaining why. Snooki claims she was actually never approached by DWTS producers to join the show. “They never asked me, not once did they come up [to ask,]” Snooki said. Even if they had Snooki says she’s not sure she would have joined DWTS Season 13. “I feel like I’m too busy to do it cause I have all my products coming out … in the future, I definitely want to dance,” she told Jay Leno on Tuesday’s Tonight Show.
Snooki’s admission comes after weeks of rumors leading up to Monday’s DWTS 13 cast reveal that she would compete for the Mirror Ball trophy. Of course when the cast was revealed live it did not include the Jersey Shore star. “I heard that you were supposed to be on that show,” Leno said. “I waited and they announced it … and there were no famous people!” he joked.
Snooki and her manager repeatedly denied the tabliod reports, but media outlets continued to quote sources with so-called insider information. After one denial from Snooki a new report was published claiming the Snooki-DWTS deal wasn’t 100% yet and was being stalled over Snooki’s demand for more money.
Looks like Snooki got the last laugh…or perhaps it was the last dance.
