While the rest of the world seems to have embraced Snooki’s new role as a mom-to-be, MTV execs are reportedly not exactly beaming with pride and joy.

The NY Daily News quotes a Jersey Shore insider as saying that producers are annoyed about Snooki living in a different house with Jionni for Season 6. Apparently they “understand the ‘liability issues’” involved were she to continue shacking up at the alcohol-soaked Shore house, but they’ll be missing out on “maximum drama.”

The insider says, “She’s becoming costly [and] stressful for the show, but the show isn’t sure it can afford to lose her.” While it’s true that MTV will most likely be paying twice as much for two houses this season as opposed to the one Shore house, we doubt that we’re talking millions of dollars here. A halfway decent monthly rental in Seaside won’t bust the bank.

But it sounds like the issue has more to do with branding. The source says that the image of pregnant Snooki staying away from the clubs and not drinking “is not an image that makes good television.”

While that may be true, everything we’ve seen and heard about Snooki & JWOWW looks like amazing TV, so we have a feeling that Snooki will be just as entertaining as a mom than she was as a fall-down drunk.

Catch the premiere of Snooki and JWOWW’s new spin-off on Thursday, June 21 on MTV.
