Pregnant stars stick together!

Though Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi told Us Weekly Thursday that she "would die" if she were Jessica Simpson's size, Polizzi backtracked via Twitter two days later. "I never dissed Jessica Simpson," the Jersey Shore star clarified. "I love the girl and her hot ass bump."

Unlike Simpson, who's eaten everything from buttered Pop-Tarts to cantaloupe with salt while pregnant, Polizzi is more mindful of her diet. "[Jessica] said she indulged in everything that she wanted," she told Us at the MTV Upfronts in NYC. "I'm trying to each healthy — fruits, lots of jelly and Italian ices. Nothing fattening at all."

Though Simpson, 31, is due any day, Polizzi is "five months" along. When she broke the news of her pregnancy and engagement to Jionni LaValle in an Us Weekly cover story in March, the 24-year-old admitted she's already had a few strange pregnancy dreams.

"I had a dream I was in labor and my mom induced me with a shot in my shoulder," Polizzi said. "My old principal was my doctor. You know when you hold in a fart and it hurts? In my dream they were contractions."
