A pregnant Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi seems eager to put to rest any suspicion that her boozing may have been at the root of her star appeal. The Jersey Shore star's hard-drinking antics—including frequent benders, black-outs and an arrest for public intoxication—have earned her both a reputation as party girl, and a rabid fan following. But even though she's given up the sauce to grow a mini-Snooki, she says she's just as nutty as ever in her new reality show, Snooki & JWoww, which aired on MTV last night. As far as her old hard-partying ways, the mom-to-be says she's doesn't miss it, as long as she doesn't have to watch others throw down: "When it’s not around me, I really don’t care, I could care less. But when I see my friends party, you know, stuff like that, I want to play too,” she tells Access. “So, if I see it, it sucks. Other than that, I mean, I really don’t care.” But 24-year-old maintains she won't be hitting it as hard from now on—even after her child is born. “When you have a baby, it changes your entire life and of course I’m going to go out some nights and go out with my girls and have drinks, but, you know, your baby is your life now and I’m excited to be a mom!” As for being a mom who gets wasted, she says: “I think that’d be very trashy if I did that."
