Is Snooki expecting a baby?

Maybe when Snooki's around the world get pregnant, their babies gestate in their cleavage?

Though she recently denied it, many news organizations are now reporting that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is indeed three months pregnant with boy-friend Jionni LaValle’s baby. The “Jersey Shore” star is reportedly looking to make the most of the announcement — and has even brokered a deal for a cover story with Us Weekly. Appar-ently, Snooki is looking to use her pregnancy to become “the next Kourtney Kardashian,” a source tells Page Six. But reps at MTV aren’t as excited, since Snooki is currently filming a “Jersey Shore” spin-off chronicling her hard-partying life-style. “MTV went into crisis mode after they found out,” the source says. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show.”

I laughed at this because, well, “creative direction” and “‘Jersey Shore’ spin-off” do not go together. But then it makes sense: MTV’s programming is filled with a million bad parenting reality shows, from “Teen Mom” to “16 and Pregnant.” Even they are probably loath to air a segment of Snooki taking her baby for her first spray tan.

Toni Braxton and Eddie Murphy?

Color us surprised: Toni Braxton and Eddie Murphy are dating, per Us Weekly.

The singer, 44, and comic actor, 50, “are seeing each other and are very into it,” a source tells the magazine, adding that the romance started four months ago.

Braxton’s rep insists “Toni and Eddie are just friends and have been fans of each other’s work for a long time.” However, the insider says, “Their kids have met. … It’s getting very serious.”
