It's no secret I love the kids from Jersey Shore (some much more than others, of course). I can GTL with the best of them, except I am not a member of a gym, I tend to blind people at the beach with my pastiness, and the only one who does my laundry is me. That said, y'all have to admit that the orange crew has grown up and calmed down more than anyone ever expected. Makes me proud…
I understood when communities didn't want the drunken, brawling, slipper-wearing, Britney flashing, roid raging guidos and guidettes falling all over their boardwalks, but times have changed. They've changed. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley still enjoy time in front of MTV's cameras for their spin-off Snooki & JWoww, but now they are planning weddings and burping babies instead of planning ragers and, well, just burping.
This newfound maturity doesn't seem to matter to the community of Pelican Island, New Jersey. They don't want the show filming anywhere near them. Need a refresher? Catch up here. However, now Snooki and JWoww aren't giving up without a fight!
Later she headed over to the Encore Beach Club in Encore at Wynn Las Vegas to host a pool party – wearing a teeny bikini with white hearts and pink lace. That night the former Jersey Shore star and her friends partied it up at at Surrender Nightclub.
We have the photos from JWoww's big weekend below!
TELL US – WHICH SWIMSUIT IS THE BETTER LOOK FOR JWOWW?
Snooki is a busy working mom. This morning the reality star and mini mogul kissed her adorable son goodbye and headed out for a long day of events.
Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) first headed over to day one of the 2013 Book Expo America at Jacob Javits Center in New York City. Snooki was there do a little early promotion of her upcoming book "Baby Bumps". The book isn't ready yet, but the cover is and nobody works harder than Snooki when she's got a project in the cooker! She Tweeted, "At the book expo with my new book Baby Bumps! Can't wait to finish for my pregnant ladies!!".
After that gig was finished, Nicole headed over to the Plaza at Madison Square Garden to work with WE TV. WE TV's Bridezillas kicked off its 10th Anniversary and final season with a cake eating competition hosted by Snooki. The winner got a check for $10,000! Get paid to eat cake..where do we sign up?
Snooki is looking smoking hot lately! The mom of eight-month-old Lorenzo has been working hard and eating right – and should be proud of it!
The Snooki & JWoww star gained over 40 lbs during her pregnancy but has worked hard to shed the weight and tone up. Posting a ton of photos to Instagram and twitter lately, the reformed guidette is looking fantastic!
Don't worry – she hasn't shed her penchant for tacky clothes, leopard print, or glitter with all the pounds. Photos of Snooki's transformation are below!
The Jersey Shore cast (minus The Situation) came together yesterday for a special taping of 'Today', as they reopened the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. The boardwalk suffered major damage seven months ago during Hurricane Sandy, but has been restored through the efforts of several fundraising initiatives.
Also on hand to cut the ribbon was Governor Chris Christie, who has always been very vocal about his dislike of the Jersey Shore cast and the show itself. Hopefully Governor Christie will see that they've done a lot of good for the area, helping to raise money and awareness and driving tourists to the shore. After coming face to face with him, Snooki Tweeted, "Getting told why we are bad for jersey. Amazing…".
And yesterday she appeared on an episode of MTV's Girl, Get Your Mind Right where she tried to prove that she's actually like really, really nice and not a trashbaggy twit at all!
But wait – there's more! Angelina also has a "singing" career. She recently released a hilariously awful music video with Adam Barta – also starring Starter Wives' Cheryl Caruso (no – no one watched that show!).
Former Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D has been wearing his hair in that gelled up crazy spikey way for so long that I didn't think we'd ever see him with a new 'do.
Pauly D took to Instagram to show off his new hairystyle and we think it's a keeper. He wrote, "#TheGreatDJGatsby !!!". I'm guessing this is only a temporary thing for a DJ gig at a Gatsby-themed party and not a look that's here to stay.
