Snooki’s Ball Drop To Ring In 2011 From N.J.

SEASIDE HEIGHTS, N.J. (CBSNewYork/AP) — Turns out there wasn’t room for Snooki in Times Square this New Year’s Eve.

MTV’s plan to put “Jersey Shore” star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi inside a ball to drop from the network’s Times Square headquarters has been dropped after an objection by the Times Square Alliance.

That group organizes the annual event that includes the century-old tradition of dropping its own ball at the stroke of midnight.

However, Snooki will still drop in as part of “The MTV New Year’s Bash.” The stunt has been relocated to Seaside Heights, N.J., according to Diane Stabley, borough clerk for the Jersey shore town made famous as the setting for MTV’s hit reality show.

The remainder of the 90-minute special will stay put at MTV’s Times Square studios. It airs Friday at 10:30 p.m. EST.

    I love how all you Americans left comments about her weight; yet she’s thin compared to all those other obese people in your country. And I think she really represents the American population in IQ. So why not? Hey, she’s funny! :)

    If you are wise, you’ll listen to me

    What do you get when you guzzle down sweets?
    Eating as much as an elephant eats
    What are you at getting terribly fat?
    What do you think will come of that?

    I don’t like the look of it
