Snooki Says New Boyfriend Hates the Spotlight
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi
Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has found a new man, but if all goes according to plan, you won't be seeing a lot of pictures of him.

"He doesn't give a [expletive] about [the celebrity world]," the pint-sized Jersey Shore star said of boyfriend Jionni LaValle.

Previous boyfriends have been open about their relationship with multiple media outlets. LaValle, she says, isn't that way. Recently he even saw a photo of the two of them in a tabloid magazine – and he was less than thrilled.

"He freaked out," she said. "He said, 'I don't want to be in that world, because he's trying to be a teacher and, you know, he just wants me to be me."

LaValle, she recently Tweeted, already has the seal of approval from her father, and the two are already tight.

"When we're together, it's just, like, private," she said Saturday before hosting a Halloween party at Las Vegas's Jet Nightclub. "So that's what I respect most about him. He just doesn't care."

Steering clear of the spotlight, LaVelle didn't join Polizzi at the party, but new Jersey Shore cast member Deena Nicole Cortese met up with her in Vegas, where the two were spotted in the VIP section drinking champagne and vodka.

Of Cortese, Polizzi said, "I just needed another party girl in the house, somebody to drink with me when everybody is sleeping. So that's that girl for you."
