The weight loss of Snooki, star of the Jersey Shore, continues to make headlines. Last week, we reported on this and posted some after photos of the Snooks. Well, we now have some more photos for you below!
As we reported, Snooki, who is only 4’9″, lost her weight the old fashioned way via diet and exercise. “As everyone’s planning their night at the club, I’m wondering when Gold’s [Gym] closes,” she recently tweeted. And in an older interview with PEOPLE magazine, Snooki talked about her healthier lifestyle. “[I have] egg whites in the morning and chicken and salads,” she said. “And if you do drink, it’s gotta be clear liquors.”
No more throwing back Long Island Iced Teas or margaritas for Snooki as she reveals her new drink of choice is a lighter option: vodka with seltzer water.
With season 4 of Jersey Shore set to begin filming in Italy any day now, Snooki worries about falling of her diet and fitness wagon. “All we’re gonna eat is pasta,” she said. “I’m very, very scared – drinking wine and having spaghetti all day [would] throw me off course.”
Snooki also got herself some new leopard print hair extensions as she tweeted days ago, “My new hair! Leopard Print Extensions underneath ! #LOVE.” So yeah, a photo of Snooki’s leopard print extensions below as well more photos of her weight loss.
Two months after getting engaged to beau Dave Kovacs, the former Jersey Shoretroublemaker star confirmed her pregnancy to TMZ. And yes, the baby is courtesy of her fiance Dave. Hey, you never know these days.
The self-anointed Kim Kardashian of Staten Island wouldn’t confirm how far along she is but congrats to Angelina! A picture of Angelina and Dave below.
UPDATE – Snooki tweeted on May 27 that she helped slim down with the help of the Zantrex weight loss supplement. “I really do look good! #Sn00ki♥@Zantrex!” tweeted Snooki.

The life of a Teen Mom (or dad for that matter) is never boring, and the recent cast of Teen Mom 2 is no exception. These ladies (and gent) are upstaging show alums like Amber Portwood with their drama, antics and self-promotion. Read on to learn more about whether a recently separated Leah Messer is pregnant with her third child, as well as who Jenelle Evans would like to knock-out next. Saving the best for last, we give you the creme de la creme of reality star music forays, as Teen Dad Jo Rivera debuts a very hard core rap video.
Leah, 19, has a lot on her plate with 16-month-old twin girls and a very recent separation from her husband of six months, Corey Simms. The couple has had their fair share of hardships, juggling baby Aliannah’s health issues on top of being new parents and newlyweds. Now it seems that Leah may be adding another baby to her brood. In Touch is reporting that Leah purchased a pregnancy test on April 22nd at a Target near Elkview, North Carolina. A witness claims that Leah looked very worried while shopping with a friend, telling In Touch, “She left her friend behind when she went to the aisle with the pregnancy tests, telling her she’d meet her at the car.”
However, that isn’t where the story ends. Reports have claimed Corey has depleted the couple’s joint account and Leah is terrified as to what will happen to she and her growing family. A source claims, “Leah’s biggest nightmare is getting pregnant with no way to care for her babies and no money.” Recently Leah’s highschool sweetheart, Robbie Kidd, whom she dated for three years before getting pregnant with Corey, has made no secret of his feelings for his former flame. In an In Touch interview, Robbie, who works at a local McDonalds, refers to Leah as the “one who got away” and states, “In my perfect world, we would be back together, and I’d help her raise the kids.” Will that offer still be on the table if Leah is expecting Corey’s third child?
From babies to brawls, the show’s featherweight champion Jenelle Evans, 19,is no stranger to fighting, but at least this time it’s famewhoring for a very worthwhile cause. Not one to let old grudges die, Jenelle has challenged Kim Kardashian, 30,to a celebrity boxing match with proceeds to go to Inspirations, a national organization which aids teens suffering from alcohol and drug abuse. While in the past, Kim has gotten in the ring for charity, there is no word yet as whether her camp has responded to the offer. According to Hollywoodlife.com, the stars’ payout could be as much as a cool million dollars. As for me, my money’s on Jenelle.
And finally in Teen Mom news, there’s always someone (let’s be honest, most of them) looking to capitalize on their fleeting fifteen minutes of fame. This week, it’s Jo Rivera (aka N.I.C.K.B.), father of Isaac with former girlfriend Kailyn Lowry. As the next Vanilla Ice Eminem, he has just released his first rap video, an amazing remix sampling Alicia Keys’ Unthinkable. Popeater.com recently debuted Jo’s video, and his lyrics put William Shakespeare to shame. He tells his lady that her “pinky-toe ring highlights [her] feet” while likening her scent to fresh laundry and her beauty to an “avacado from Mexico.” Crunk! Please watch it below. I had to did. Enjoy!
On this week’s Survivor, “A Mystery Package,” the Murlonio tribe reigns supreme as the final two Zapatera members, former NFL player Steve Wright and farmer (and my favorite) Ralph Kiser, are sent packing for Redemption Island. PuppetmasterBoston Rob Mariano continues to pull the strings which will likely ensure him a spot in the finale, seeing as his minions can’t think for themselves.
Last week, Julie’s flame was extinguished, but not before she admitted to burying Federal Agent (?) Phillip’s shorts where they will never be found. Fortunately, the “mystery package” was not the viewers having to watch Phillip tool around in his pink tighty-whiteys (tighty-pinkys?) for the entire episode–this undercover specialist has a dream in which his grandfather comes to him and leads him to his missing shorts. Lo and behold, he actually finds the spot, digs and digs, and retrieves his shorts. Thankfully. He can’t wait to face Julie wearing said shorts, and compares it to a scene from A Few Good Men. “You know what I want to say to Julie? What did Jack Nicholson say to Tom Cruise? ‘You can’t STAND the truth.’” Eh, close enough, Phillip.
Matt, Mike and Julie make the trek over from Redemption Island to see who will be second loser the next member of the jury. Matt admits that he feels at peace, and if God thinks it’s his time to go home, he’s ready to leave. He glances quickly (and not too kindly) at that chick who threw him under the busAndrea, who later remarked that it seemed like he gave her a dirty look, but she could be reading into it. Yeah, that’s it. The three compete in a battle to the death, or “shuffleboard” as the geriatrics call it. Sadly, Julie just can’t slide the disk across the board, so puck it, she’s the newest addition to the jury.
Andrea feels some guilt for breaking Matt’s spirit “on a human level, not on a game level” (thanks for the clarification), which causes her Ometepe buddies to question her loyalty in the event Matt comes back from Redemption Island. With that in mind, the cast heads to a log roll competition for the immunity challenge and reward–chocolate cake and ice-cold milk. After two nail-biting rounds of the castaways tap dancing on a log, Grant Mattos and Ralph are left to vie for immunity. Grant wins, inviting Boston Rob to sit next to him in the cafeteria and braid his hair join him for cake. He also shares his loot with Andrea in hopes of making her feel secure before her tribe turns against her and throws her under the bus.
Jeff Probst gives the remaining group a “mystery package” which is a twist that will be revealed at Tribal Council. I can’t help but wonder if Jeff didn’t just wrap up a brick to mess with these folks. Steve tries to get the Ometepe girls to join him and Ralph in their attempt to vote off Boston Rob. Ralph, through the magic of subtitles, believes he will be voted off. (I LOVE him. Being from the South, I sometimes wish I had someone translating for me a good bit of the time.) Smart cookie, that Ralph.
At Tribal Council, Ralph is voted off to no one’s surprise. However, the “mystery package” is opened and (HOLY TWIST!!) there will be an immediate immunity challenge followed by another vote, giving the crew no time to discuss alliances. This must have been the retirement home episode, because after the riveting game of shuffle board, this immunity challenge is basically a dumbed down “Simon Says” with camping images printed on tiles. Boston Rob wins immunity, and the lone Zapatera Steve goes to join Ralph on Redemption Island.
I highly doubt veteran Boston Rob will be going anywhere anytime soon. I mean, if so, who will be around to pull the strings of his tribe members? Not everyone can form a clique as easily as a 10th grade mean girl, so I have to give Rob major props. And in the event he is voted off soon? Fear not, folks…he’s covered.
After four seasons of Survivor and two seasons of Amazing Race (with wife and fellow Survivor winner Amber), Rob is teaming up with monster truck guru Dennis Anderson. People.com reports that the two “will challenge each other to circumnavigate the globe using 80 different methods of transportation with the caveat that each cannot repeat any way twice” in the History Channel’s new series, Around the World in 80 Ways. Rob cites his time on Amazing Race as fueling his love of travel. The appeal of this show, however, takes a unique approach. Rob reveals, “Around the World in 80 Ways is completely different from anything I’ve done before in that this show will be a celebration of transportation throughout history.” While Rob admits he will miss his wife and young daughters (and hopes that none of the modes of travel will cause claustrophobia), he is very excited to begin this new adventure. I wonder what kind of strings he’ll be pulling then…
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S SURVIVOR & THE RECAP? ARE ROB’S MINIONS THE WORST PLAYERS TO PLAY THE GAME?
Surprise Surprise – appearing on a reality show called Mob Wives is causing family drama for the stars of the show!
In a new interview with the Hollywood Life, Renee Graziano revealed that her super gangster father Anthony Graziano (who is currently behind bars in a federal penitentiary), no longer speaks to her since her decision to appear on Mob Wives and expose all their family secrets and scandals to the world. You don’t say?! You mean a heavy duty gangster and former consigliere of the Bonanno crime family, doesn’t want his daughter on TV bragging about how gangster she is and acting like a Mob Groupie? Hmmm…
When asked about her father’s reaction to her appearance on the series, Renee says: “He has no reaction because we don’t speak, not now, not after I made the decision to do the show. He said to me, ‘You made your bed. Now sleep in it.’ My father doesn’t agree with anyone putting their life on [TV].”
Renee goes on to explain that going on the show wasn’t about her father anyways, but about her, of course: “I think I needed to develop my own identity outside of my family life — out of the lifestyle,” Renee reveals in the article. She goes on to add, “I was also pretty tired of people judging me upon a lifestyle — not realizing that I’m a woman, I’m a mom, I go through hardships. No sympathy — that’s not something that I want from anyone. It was my way of really planting my feet and making a change in my life.”
Oh, well, that’s an original attitude for the star of a reality show – narcissism! I mean what has Renee done that would give her a reason to be on TV except be related to some gangsters? Renee also says that everyone else in her family supports her and that her father loves her anyways.
In more family dramz for the ‘ladies’, Mob Wives resident Ultimate Fighter Drita D’avanzio is facing some criticism for her parenting skills. In an article by HollyBaby, a “source” (re: someone Drita got in a drunken brawl with and punched in the face) reveals that Drita – scandal! – has been taking her nine-year-old daughter Aleeya to visit her dad Lee D’avanzo in prison. Well, I mean otherwise would this girl even know what her father looks like? He’s been incarcerated pretty much her entire life!
The article explains that the first time Lee went away, Drita told Aleeya that her daddy was off working. But poor Aleeya still had to deal with teasing from her classmates that she didn’t have a daddy. And when Lee returned home, Aleeya “had a really hard time adapting,” says the source.
“When he first came home, Aleeya told all her friends, ‘See, I told you I had a dad.’” However, the second time Lee went to prison Drita decided to tell her daughter the truth. “The second time around she decided to tell her where her dad was so she didn’t think he up and left for no reason,” explains the friend. The article also lets us know that Lee and Drita are still happily (really?) married: “She has her second thoughts every now and then, like anyone would after 12 years of marriage. But she is standing strong.” The source adds that Lee “has another 2 to 4 years left.”
I don’t think it’s a big deal for her to take her older daughter to see her father, as long as she doesn’t take her younger one. What do you think? Should Drita be dragging her fourth grader to the federal pen for visits or not? Also, if you were Renee’s dad – would you disown her?
This week’s installment of 16 and Pregnant introduces us to Jennifer Del Rio and her older boyfriend Josh Smith(if you didn’t already know of them from recent police reports) of Tampa, Florida. Jennifer seems to come from a close-knit family, and her parents are anything but a fan of her boyfriend, Josh. At twenty-eight weeks pregnant, Jennifer is still a mere baby herself–she is a rising sophomore in high school who is carrying fraternal twin boys.
The first conflict Jennifer finds herself in embroiled in deals with naming her sons. She and Josh have decided to name the boys Noah and Joshua, Jr. Her parents are less than thrilled that one will be named after Josh, and even more upset when they learn Jennifer insists (slash Josh demanded) the boys will have his last name. We figure out that Josh is a real peach, and smart to boot. Examples? “Is it scary knowing two are coming?” Eh, we’ll see. One would be no problem, but two…that’s a tad frightening. I realize these interchanges are partially scripted, but please. The kicker is when Jennifer says she wishes she had known more about birth control, and Josh reveals that he wasn’t “too broke” to buy condoms (as he’d apparently told her) but that the whole process of going to the drug store to purchase them was just too awkward. I’d like to joke about the ways in which his life will be much more awkward now, but honestly, it’s just plain sad (his immature outlook, not their impending family).

Lots of drama on tonight’s episode of the Real World: Las Vegas as the roommates discover Dustin Zito’s porn past. Last week, we posted a segment focusing on an interview with Dustin in which he detailed his career in the gay porn industry. He also defended some remarks he made that many people believed were homophobic. In the same Ology interview, Dustin spoke of his romance with fellow cast member Heather Marter.
Dustin explains that he initially came to Las Vegas hoping for a wild time and looking for anything but a relationship. He says, “In the beginning, I’m telling myself, don’t do this, it’s Vegas. But, you know, grandma’s watching this! I don’t want to be coming home with a different girl every night!”
He continues by saying that while he tried to ignore their chemistry at first, it became increasingly difficult. Dustin recalls, “With Heather, I could fight that initial attraction. But living with her, seeing her 24/7, of course I’m gonna develop feelings for her because she’s an awesome girl. By the second or third episode we’re together- but what people don’t know is that we had a lot of talks. We took our time. We both came into the house with that same mindset that we can do whatever we want. But we couldn’t fight it. We were naturally attracted to each other.”
So far this season it seems that the two are quite a match. However, does their relationship come to a screeching halt when Heather discovers the skeletons in his closet? Dustin admits, “Heather is an amazing girl. She’s exactly what I would hope for,” but he plays coy when asked if the couple survives his secret past being revealed. Like any good reality star who knows it’s all about viewership, he responds, “That’s one of those things where you’re just going to have to watch. I won’t comment on it, because it’s such a big deal.”
And watch we will. In a teaser posted on mtv.com, we learn that this week Dustin’s porn history is revealed, shocking his cast mates and friends, and potentially ending his relationship with Heather. Ousted roommate Adam Royer is still in contact with housemate and hook-up Nany Gonzalez, and we can only assume he is no longer in the mtv created bubble that shields the cast from most forms of technology. During a very telling phone call (where Dustin and Heather are in the background getting cozy), Adam informs Nany that several people have been hitting up Dustin’s blog with comments about his past.
Curious, Adam googled his former cast mate and learned that not only was Dustin in porn, but while in the “industry” he went by the name Spencer. Stating he didn’t snoop much more, Adam asks Nany not to tell Heather of his discovery. It seems that at this point Adam is unaware that it was gay porn. Nany shares the information with roommate Naomi Defensor and the girls have a good laugh over this new revelation. Will they be able to keep the news from Heather? Obviously not….so the better question is, how will she react? I guess we shall see soon enough…
The episode airs at 10/9c. A preview clip is below -
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON TONIGHT’S EPISODE? IS DUSTIN WRONG FOR NOT TELLING HEATHER ABOUT HIS GAY PORN PAST? SHOULD HEATHER CONTINUE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM?
And then there were six. In a predictable turn of events, the lowest scoring star got the boot on Tuesday’s results show of Dancing With The Stars.
Yes, wrestler Chris Jericho and partner Cheryl Burkewere sent packing following their lackluster Tango on Monday night. Chris’s elimination proves this season is still up for grabs as just a week ago, he was tied for second place.
Chris, 40, was however a great sport about his elimination. “It’s actually good timing, because I have to fly over to England for the royal wedding,” he joked upon hearing the news. “No, but honestly, it wasn’t my best dance last night, and at this point you have to be your best because everyone’s so evenly matched,” he added.
Chris then went on to praise his partner Cheryl. “The only reason I got this far is because of Cheryl. She’s a great performer, she’s become a friend for life…I haven’t seen my kids in four weeks, so it’s time for Chris Jericho the Dancer to step aside and Chris Jericho the Daddy to come back.” he said.
Meanwhile, former American Idol contestant Pia Toscano gave her widely talked about performance during which her new beau Mark Ballas and Karina Smirnoff danced while she sang “I’ll Stand by You.”
And of course show host Tom Bergeron had to ask Pia about her romance with Mark. Tom didn’t ask if they were dating, simply asking her if Mark was a good kisser. “He’s a wonderful person,” was Pia’s reply. Well played Tom Pia. Well played.
The remaining six contestants live to compete once again next Monday.
In a new interview with CNN, Vicki, 48, actually feels that the Bravo hit show definitely contributed to her separation from husband of 16 years Donn Gunvalson.
“Six years ago when Donn and I started, we didn’t have 90 percent of the problems that we have now and I truly believe it is the show,” says Vicki who filed for divorce back in October. Vicki and Donn, who were still living together following the filing, have since listed their OC home for sale last month.
Along with the show, Vicki also blames her busy career for her split from Donn. “[W]e had a good foundation. We really felt like we could battle it and the reality was I got too busy for him. My business in itself – I have 400 agents and 12 employees and I’m at the office a lot because I was trying to film TV in there and then he felt deflated… the center of my universe was not my husband,” she says. “I didn’t have anything left for him and we grew distant. If I didn’t have the show I would have had more time for him. That’s the reality.”
Vicki goes on to add that while being on TV played a role in the failure of her marriage, it’s also a matter of life playing out in front of the camera.
“Look there’s gonna be divorces and there is gonna be deaths like when Lou Knickerbocker died. We didn’t expect that,” says Vicki. “[T]his is the reality and if you are throwing your life on a reality TV show, you have to be prepared for the consequences.”
While no one will ever fully know all that went wrong with this marriage, I can’t help but wonder if Tamra Barney’s divorce had an impact on Vicki’s decision to leave Donn. Perhaps Vicki is feeling the grass is greener on the other side and that she will find her own ‘Eddie’ though she might come to realize there aren’t a lot of men who will put up with her shenanigans Donns out there. Plus back in March, Vicki insinuated to UsWeekly that she wanted Donn to fight for her which makes me wonder if she really thought the whole divorce thing through or if this was a failed attempt to get Donn’s attention. Whatever the case, the couple is moving forward with their divorce.
Once again, below is a preview clip of the upcoming episode of the OC Housewives, which sheds some light on Vicki & Donn’s marital issues.
