Do YOU think ABC producers should fight to get the ‘Jersey Shore’ star on ‘Dancing with the Stars?’ Apparently, she’s being difficult!

Code red diva alert! The Jersey Shore‘s Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) told ABC producers on Dancing with the Stars she’d compete on the show next season, but now is holding out due to technicalities, an insider on set tells us. Do YOU think she’s worth the drama?

“They are still trying to make the deal with Snooki,” our source dishes. “She was verbally in, but has yet to sign anything. She has been very concerned with the schedule and what she will be paid.”

With the season 13 premiere of DWTS just around the corner on Sept. 19, ABC is in a rush to finalize the cast as soon as possible. After all, they have to start rehearsing, plus, the cast is being announced Aug. 29 during the Bachelor Pad.

Adds our insider, “The producers are confident that she will still join the show, but if she continues to hold out, they have people that will fill her spot. They always overcast the show.”

Snooki tweeted about the DWTS drama Aug. 16, writing, “I love watching Dancing with the Stars but I am not apart of the cast ! Sorry Tweedos.”

As of now, Robert Kardashian, Queen Latifah and several others have been reportedly cast. Don’t hold your breath on Snooki, though!
