Snooki’d: The Times Square New Year’s Ball Drop Just Got A Whole Lot Less Orange Three weeks ago it was reported that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi would climb inside the ball that drops in New York City’s Time Square on New Year’s Eve as the clock counts down to midnight. On Thursday we learned those plans have been scrapped. No, organizers weren’t concerned that the ball might be contaminated with spray tan and venereal disease. It was simply a matter of poor planning and late notice. According to the Hollywood Reporter, The co-producers of Times Square New Year’s Eve said in a statement obtained by The Hollywood Reporter that the Jersey Shore star’s year-ending idea had been denied. The request “came too late and was too impractical to fit in to our outdoor events,” the statement reads. The co-producers were clear that the Snooki ball would not have been “the actual New Year’s ball in Times Square” made famous in the annual New Year’s countdown. But even “the request to have her in a separate ball on a set-back roof” was not allowed. So there goes that idea. What will Senator John McCain fap to now on New Year’s Eve?
