Aside from what we've seen of him on "Jersey Shore," not much is known about Jionni LaValle, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's boyfriend/possible fiance/possible father of her rumored child.
And that seems to be by design, as a number of observers say that LaValle isn't interested in riding the "Jersey Shore" fame wave.
The couple started dating in 2010, and Snooki told People magazine at the time that LaValle spotted a snapshot of himself in a celebrity magazine and "freaked out." She recalled that he told her, "'I don't want to be in that world,' because he's trying to be a teacher and, you know, he just wants to be with me."

Although Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's previously denied reports that she's pregnant, The New York Post is claiming that the pint-sized reality star has been fibbing.
A similar rumor started at the beginning of the month, and the "Jersey Shore" star's rep told MTV that there was no truth to the gossip that Snooki and her boyfriend Jionni had a little one on the way.
On February 2, Snooki told "Good Morning America," “I definitely do want kids, but I’m not pregnant . . . Being pregnant should be a real thing and a happy thing, and I’m not.”

With Unit away on vacation, The Situation was forced to postpone his plans to expose Snooki’s disloyal ways.
And so, the meatball’s relationship with Jionni is safe… for at least another week.
JWoww and Roger, on the other hand, appear to be on the farewell tour - without any help from Sitch.

What does DJ Pauly D do when he’s not logging hours at the Shore Store, styling his infamous blowout, or picking grenades up at Karma? We'll soon find out.
The reality star's "Jersey Shore" spin-off, “The Pauly D Project,” is set to air on MTV in March. The 12-episode series will follow Pauly D on his quest to find a place in the music industry.
As it documents Pauly D’s post-“Shore” accomplishments, viewers will get to witness the DJ sign a recording contract with 50 Cent’s G-Note Records and join Britney Spears on her “Femme Fatale” tour, MTV writes in a press release.

Last night’s “Jersey Shore” was one of the dirtier episodes we’ve seen in the show’s five seasons. And not in a good way.
We’ve watched the cast urinate in some interesting places – behind the bar at Karma, etc. – but never in the middle of the dance floor.
Oddly enough, it wasn’t just Snooki’s blood alcohol content that caused the meatball’s accident. She was also suffering from a UTI, which she said doesn’t stand for Ultimate Tanning Institute, contrary to popular belief.

Although Seaside Heights is awash in publicity thanks to MTV's "Jersey Shore," Hoboken, New Jersey seems to want none of it.
Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer has denied a film permit that would allow a "Jersey Shore" spinoff to film in public locations in the interest of "protecting public safety and quality of life concerns for Hoboken residents," a statement on the city's website says.
In a letter addressed to a representative of "Jersey Shore's" production company, 495 Productions, Zimmer further details the decision, noting that the proposed filming locations would "take place on the very doorsteps and beneath the windows of our citizens, unnecessarily degrading their quality of life." You can read the letter in full here.
