Snooki Deciding NOT to Live in the ‘Jersey Shore’ House: Smartest Decision Ever?
News flash: Pregnant Snooki has decided not to live in the ‘Jersey Shore’ house while they shoot the sixth season. Is this the smartest decision she’s ever made? Maybe!
Well, this is somewhat unexpected: Snooki is displaying not only good, but moreover, excellent judgment about something! Sources have apparently revealed to everybody’s favorite gossip site—TMZ, of course—that the pint-sized reality star will NOT be returning to the Jersey Shore cast’s traditional digs this summer. Instead, she’ll be getting her own place nearby while they shoot the sixth season of the show. Why? Her pregnancy, of course.
Wowzers. I’m going to go out on a limb here and say that this is possibly the smartest decision that she’s ever made. I’ve remarked before on the fact that birthing a child into the world of Jersey Shore is the worst idea ever (which, by the way, I still think is true); but—dare I say it?—Snooki seems to be doing her best to both bring in her paycheck and keep her unborn child safe. Indeed, TMZ’s sources say that she’s taking her pregnancy “very seriously,” as well as that she believes it’s “not worth it to be surrounded by boozy, loud roommates while pregnant.” Sensible, no?
I’ll confess that I don’t regularly watch Jersey Shore, largely because once you’ve seen on episode of it, you’ve pretty much seen them all—but it’ll be interesting to see how this season plays out. Between Snooki’s impending little one (she’ll be in her last trimester, too) and Mike “The Situation” Sorentino’s new, sober, post-rehab lifestyle, the partying will probably get scaled back. We’ll also see the cast members dealing with real-life problems for once, rather than their standard shallow “Who should I bang tonight?”-type crises—which, I suspect, will be more interesting to watch. Or possibly more snooze-inducing. I’m not sure yet.
No word on whether Snooki’s fiancé, Jionni LaValle, will be joining her, but I think it’s pretty likely that we’ll be seeing him around, especially if she’s got her own pad.
Tell us: What do you think? Is Snooki surprising you as much as she’s surprising us?
