Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Drama, Reality, MTV, Gossip, Rumors,

SnookiSnooki has moved out of the Jersey Shore house because she doesn't want to be surrounded by parties.

The pregnant star - who is engaged to Jionni LaValle - is living in an adjacent house as she was worried about what people would think of her if she stayed, but show chiefs believe her change of address will provide new themes for the program to explore.

"It's not a prison. I know she's concerned about the perception of her being a pregnant woman in a party house. I think that's a common experience among a group of friends when somebody gets pregnant. This is an opportunity to see how she deals with it and how the rest of the house deals with it. The show has always been about following what's really happening in their lives," Chris Linn, MTV's executive Vice President of programming and head of production, told Entertainment Weekly.

However, he reassured that fans shouldn't worry about Snooki losing her humor now she is readying for a more sensible path in her life.

Beyonce Knowles is pregnant. The singer arrived at the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) last night in a loose fitting orange dress, and clutched her visible baby bump as she posed on the red carpet. She told the press: "I have a surprise!" Beyonce's publicist later confirmed the news, telling People.com: "I'm happy to say it's true." The child will be the first for the 29-year-old and her husband, rapper Jay-Z, who married in 2008. During the VMAs Beyonce first cheered on Jay from the side of the stage as he performed new single 'Otis' with Kanye West, then wowed the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles herself, singing 'Love on Top'. She told the crowd: "I want you to feel the love that's growing inside of me." As she sung, Beyonce proudly rubbed her bump, and the cameras panned over to Jay-Z, who had a huge grin on his face. The performance was met with a standing ovation. Beyonce has recently hinted she was thinking of settling down, saying earlier this month how she was hoping to "dedicate herself" to having children. She said: "When you're young - 18 or 19 - you have the energy and drive. That's the time to work as hard as you can. "Now I'm a woman, and because I gave it my all, I can focus on my marriage. I can decide I want to have kids. I can be the mother I want to be and dedicate myself to my children."
