Snooki ‘Loves’ Living With Jionni’s Parents On ‘Snooki & JWoww’

'We have our alone time, but once we need help ... his mother can watch the baby,' Snooki tells MTV News.

The second season of “Snooki & JWoww” is officially under way, as the “Jersey Shore” alumni embark on the next chapter of their lives filled with babies, engagements and, of course, friendship .

The show gives us an inside look at the pals’ relationships with their fianc├ęs, and it’s not always picture-perfect, but according to JWoww, that’s one of the best things about the show.

“Everyone thinks relationships are like ‘knight in shining armor’; no relationships perfect,” JWoww told MTV News. “But we’re pretty good at dealing with different dynamics and dealing with our own relationships and growing from our mistakes and how to deal with them and how to deal with a baby and being engaged, just the dynamics. It’s a learning experience, but it’s also really fun to watch.”

What will be especially fun to watch is Snooki becoming a first-time mom. The show picks up with Snooki gearing up for baby Lorenzo as she is eight months into her pregnancy and living with her fiancé, Jionni. These two don’t have your typical living arrangement: They’ve decided to shack up with Jionni’s parents, which, Snooki says, isn’t as bad as it may seem.

“I love living at Jionni’s parents’ house,” Snooki said. “We live in the basement, so it’s like a nice apartment, like a studio apartment where we have our alone time, but once we need help with the baby or we just want to take a nap, Janice, his mother, can watch the baby, so we have a lot of help, and I love that.”

During Tuesday’s premiere, Snooki is celebrating her upcoming bundle of joy with a baby shower at a “classy joint.” While unwrapping her gifts, Jionni finds himself on the way to the hospital after feeling numb on the golf course.

“He was playing softball the day before, it was like 90-degree weather, he was hardly drinking,” Snooki said. “And then the next day at the shower, he was playing golf in the 90-degree weather and he wasn’t drinking, so basically he got really dehydrated and he was weak and had to go to the hospital.”

Jionni, of course, made a full recovery and they both enjoyed their plethora of baby gifts for Lorenzo.

Don’t miss “Snooki & JWoww,” every Tuesday at 10 p.m. ET on MTV. For more on the show, visit MTV’s Remote Control blog.
