Snooki & Kim Kardashian: Comparing the Reality TV Versions of Their Pregnancies

From the big reveal to their cravings, we look at how the stars' pregnancies have been documented on their shows

Watching the promo for the upcoming eighth season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (premiering June 2 on E!), you might just get that deja vu feeling. Hasn't another reality show recently devoted a whole season to a main cast member's pregnancy, and the big changes her condition brought to the series? Ah, yes! MTV viewers just got done witnessing the pregnancy adventures of Snooki during Season 2 of Snooki & J WOWW

Hmmm. Wonder how the pregnancy narrative of this reality starlet will stack up to the one that came before? Though The Kardashians has yet to air, we can make some educated guesses based on the sneak peek below, and some other videos...  

How did they reveal the big news?

During the April 7 finale of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Kim tells sister Kourtney she's pregnant in a very dramatic fashion...

Snooki, meanwhile, is much more nonchalant when she reveals her news to best bud J WOWW during the Season 2 premiere of Snooki & JWOWW last June…


What about pregnancy cravings? 

In the Kardashians Season 8 promo above, Kim appears to revel in giving in to her cravings. (Cheese nachos, anyone?) And in this video, TMZ shows just how far she'll go to get her Mexican food fix...

But if Snooki was downing junk food during her pregnancy, she didn't cop to it. "I'm craving a lot of fruits, which is good, and a lot of jelly, so you know everything's pretty much healthy that I'm craving, which is nice, because I don't want to add that extra weight," she tells an Access Hollywood reporter in the clip below.

And each lady's relationship status?

As Kim complains in the promo, things are...complicated. "I'm scared with the divorce," she says, referring to first hubbie Kris Humphries, who, she says, has been dragging out divorce proceedings for months now. "I'm probably going to have this baby being married to someone else." But according to Starpulse, her fiance Kanye West is a "traditional" guy who wants some form of "commitment ceremony" before the baby arrives. "While their marriage won't be official, Kim and Kanye will exchange vows and rings in front of their families. The ceremony is said to be taking place in a private beach mansion in Malibu," a source says. And in this cute moment from a recent episode of Kourtney & Kim Take Miami, Kim gushed about her willingness to marry Kanye. She also appeared on Today and talked about the marriage she hopes to have (see the clip below).

As for Snooki  and her baby daddy, Jionni, that's a complex situation, too. "I have to find a house first," she told Access Hollywood. "Because I want to get married and go to a house, not to his parents' basement." Okay, well, maybe it's not that complicated. But will the wedding ever happen? During Jersey Shore's  Season 6 premiere, the other guys noted Jionni's many absences, and questioned his commitment...
