Don't expect too much partying from your favorite gnome-esque diva. According to TMZ, Snooki won't be sharing the beach house with the rest of the Juice Heads. She has instead opted to live alone in a nearby apartment while she gestates.

Or, perhaps she's hiding from Katie Couric. is reporting that Couric took a less than fair blow at the Snookster when questioned recently about her upcoming talk show, "Katie."  During a press conference Couric said that Snooki is  "cute and everything," but, "It's funny people find her interesting."

According to friends of the pint-sized mother-to-be, it wasn't that long ago that Couric was one of those people that found her so interesting. They claimed that when Snooki was at ABC a few months ago, Katie "was practically stalking her . . . Katie said, 'We need to take a picture, you have to follow me on Twitter.' Everyone was like, 'Who knew Katie was such a fan?'"

A damage control representative for Couric pounced on this minor incident, stating that Couric would love to see Snooki on her sound stage "If the right opportunity comes up."
