The preview for Thursday's episode of "Jersey Shore" leads viewers to believe that Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's relationship with her boyfriend of 10 months, Jionni LaValle, may be on the rocks thanks to Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino. (For the record, Snooki admitted that she did cheat on Jionni with her ripped co-star.) But on Wednesday, the 23-year-old reality star revealed on "Good Morning America" that she and Jionni are still going strong. "I don't hook up anymore," she said. "I'll always be this crazy, fun person, but when it's time to get married, I'm going to be an amazing wife. Jionni is a great guy," she gushed, "so I'm down for making Guido babies with him."

Omg! caught up with the pint-sized reality star and her BFF Deena Cortese on Wednesday night at a party celebrating their new cover of YRB magazine at District 36 in NYC, where Snooki sported freshly streaked locks and admitted that being away from her main squeeze while filming the latest season of the hit MTV reality series in Italy wasn't easy.
"Yeah the long distance is hard!" she exclaimed. "From being with your boyfriend every single day for six months and then not seeing him, that really sucked. You know, it just makes you stronger if you go through it."
Still, she notes that a long-distance relationship isn't for everyone.
"If you are actually living long distance -- screw it. But if you are away for a couple months, like an internship or vacation, you can work it out for sure."
Sorry, Mike. No more smushing with Snooki for you!

Since Snooki seems ready to settle down, does she have dreams of becoming the next Teresa Giudice?
"I would never be a Real Housewife [of New Jersey]," she insists. "I would have my own show [called] 'Nicole's Family World' or something. It would be cool."
Deena, however, would be more than happy to join the cast of the Bravo show.
"I actually like them," she laughs. "I love Jersey! I am a Jersey girl! I am addicted to reality TV as much as the next person and I do watch them -- and you know, I am hoping!"
As for whether any of the guys on "Jersey Shore" -- including current crush Pauly D -- are marriage material for Deena, that is definitely still up for debate.
"You know, who knows?" she says. "But I don't really look at [my castmembers] like that."
Catch the girls tonight on MTV at 10 p.m. ET/PT for the latest episode of "Jersey Shore" ... Italian style.
