It wouldn't be The Jersey Shore without Snooki, right? Well, luckily it won't have to be -- MTV has just confirmed that the pregnant reality star WILL be back for season 6!

"MTVgets ready for fist pumps and baby bumps," the network's statement says. "America's favorite housemates will all return to theirhome-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory. . .as their lives outside the Shore take off in exciting newdirections." Wow, "fist pumps and baby bumps." Amazing.

Season 6 will film this summer in SeasideHeights, NJ. By that time Snooki's baby bump will have grown considerably -- I doubt she'll want to be doing much of anything except lying on the beach, sleeping, and eating. Not exactly great fodder for a reality show, but there's nothing they can do about that now!

Snooki's rep told Us Weekly, "There will be a bigchange, that's for 'shore,'" this season!  Viewers will have to waitand see..." But it's pretty likely that Snooki WON'T be living in the Jersey Shore house will the rest of the cast. Back when she confirmed her pregnancy she said, "If anything, I'll visit the shore. I'm not living in that house pregnant. I don't want to be one of those moms who's pregnant in a club. It's disgusting." I would add that pretty much everything she's done up until this point on the show has been pretty disgusting, but there's not much point. At least she's drawing the line somewhere!

Will you be watching season 6 of Jersey Shore?
