If you were hoping to see Jersey Shore’s Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi drop from a glass ball in the middle of Times Square at midnight on New Year’s Eve, it looks like you’re in for some disappointment. The stunt has been banned from the Times Square area by city officials. What went wrong? Keep reading for all the details.

The plan was to put Jersey Shore’s Snooki in a ball like “a friggin’ hamster,” and have the ball drop at midnight as part of MTV’s New Year’s Eve bash on December 31st.

“It’s the first time they’ve done it. I’m not sure how it’s going to work, but I think it’ll be fine,” said Snooki earlier in the week.

But now that news of the stunt has spread, it’s being reported that MTV’s plans have been shut down by city officials.

“The Snooki ball drop isn’t going to happen in Times Square,” an insider told Popeater.com’s Rob Shuter. “At midnight, the crowd and the media will be watching Mayor Bloomberg, Dick Clark and the official ball drop, not a cast member of the ‘Jersey Shore.’

“No way would they allow this to take place. MTV rents a position in the Square that night like every other media outlet. You can’t get access to the Square without an official credential. You have to play by the official rules or you get kicked out, which is exactly what has happened to MTV and Snooki,” revealed the insider.

MTV has not yet responded to rumors of the Snooki drop being cancelled, but it may be that they plan to do it somewhere else.

If all else fails, Jersey’s not too far away!

UPDATE: Crews from MTV have begun construction for the ball drop, which will now take place in Seaside Heights, New Jersey, right next to the original Jersey Shore house.
