It’s Jersey Shore vs. Governor Chris Christie take two, as the New Jersey Governor recently blocked a $420,000 tax credit that was promised to the production company behind the MTV hit show.

Gov. Christie, an outspoken critic of the Jersey Shore, did not mince his words or feelings in explaining why he vetoed the credit. He stated that he was “duty-bound” to stop taxpayer money from going to “a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

While his reasons seem fair enough, Gov. Christie, who allowed tax credits for other TV shows and films to go forward, is now facing criticism from some who feel he went above and beyond by blocking this tax credit. A piece written by the NYDailyNews criticizes Christie for doing the same thing he attacks the show for — which is playing to the cheap seats.

The article states that while the Jersey Shore is indeed a trashy show, MTV spent $2.1 million filming in New Jersey and therefore deserved the $420,000 credit it applied for. The article adds that Christie’s decision could end up hurting NJ as companies thinking of filming in the state will now wonder if they could lose already-approved financial incentives because some politician “wants to score easy points.”

In other Shore news, Deena Cortese is now speaking out following the airing of the kiss seen around the world. One half member of ‘Team Meatballs’ explained her never-ending makeout session with Snooki during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Deena stated, “Me and [Snooki] make out when we’re drunk sometimes, it happens! Team meatballs! Meatball power! It was kind of stupid. The roommates were all being so lame and judgmental when they have seen it happen before! It was like, ‘why are you surprised?’”

Deena went on to add that another explanation for the makeout session was also the lack of guys in Italy. “I felt very lonely in Italy. A lot of them had boyfriends and I was like the single girl having a good time,” said Deena. “It was hard to find guys out there because some of them didn’t speak English, some of them hooked up with their sisters! It was hard to communicate.”

And speaking of Snooki, she is also getting media attention after she was pictured above over the weekend during an event in Atlantic City. Many media outlets credited her with a drastic weight loss (not really seeing this) to which she credited the Zantrex weight loss pill. She has an endorsement deal with them. Snooki tweeted, “Glad to hear reports that say I look good =) but it’s not because of HCG! Thanks @Zantrex!”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 9th episode this season titled “Three men and a Snooki,” Snooki is devastated over her big fight with Jionni, and decides to take a break from the relationship while also turning to drinking. Mike thinks it’s finally his chance to win her over, but it’s someone else who ends up comforting her. Meanwhile, Deena has a pregnancy scare.

The episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

And as for Snooki and boyfriend Jionniiiiii, they are still together! The Snooks tweeted the below photo of the two just hours ago with the caption “Always.”

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON GOV. CHRISTIE’S DECISION? PLUS THOUGHTS ON DEENA’S COMMENTS? DO YOU THINK SNOOKI LOST WEIGHT?


On last night’s Jersey Shore, there was a guido/gorilla break up of juicehead proportions. Kuckas were flashed, tears were shed, screams were heard ’round Italia. It was pretty epic.

We rejoin the meatballs post-wreck. If Snooki thinks that this is the worst thing to happen to her while she’s in Italy, she needs only to wait a few days! Snooki gets a breathalyzer, and because she doesn’t have her license, she and Deena are being carted off by the Italian police. The guys arrive with her license just in time to see the house car being towed. The boys spend two hours in the waiting room at the station before they are able to free the meatballs.

Once home, Snooki calls Jionni to tell him of her recent escapades. Jionni tells her that Roger can’t come any more because he has to work. Snooki relays the news to JWoww, and she calls Roger very upset. It seems Roger’s leave from work has been denied. I think there has to be more to it, but I want to like the Roger I met at the shore.

Another Jersey Shore relationship bites the dusts.

Just days after they were photographed above together in Florence, Italy, both UsWeekly and Life and Style magazine are reporting Snooki, 22, and boyfriend Jionni LaValle, 23, have broken up.

Even more surprising, the couple had been together for eight months. An insider tells UsWeekly the break-up occurred during Jionni’s visit to Italy where Snooki and the rest of the Shore gang are currently filming the 4th season. “They broke up,” an insider reveals. “[He] came home early.”

Life & Style gives more details, stating the break-up occurred over the weekend. “Snooki and her boyfriend have split up,” a source states. “He went to visit her in Italy this past week. They fought a lot while he was there and have called it quits.”

The couple, who actually met during the 3rd season filming of the show, got into a public fight over an incident at a club. While they kissed and made up the next day, they shortly realized that they still had distance and trust issues between them, and ended things.

“He said it was hard for them to be apart, and that with the whole world knowing her past, he finds it very hard to trust her,” a second source close to Jionni reveals. “He said that as far as he was concerned, if she did anything wrong in Italy, it was over.” However, it doesn’t appear there was any wrongdoing on Snooki’s part.

MTV announced over the weekend that the 4th season of the Jersey Shore will premiere August 4. Season 5 is also set to begin filming soon.

Snooki Wedding Rehearsal

Over the weekend, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi celebrated her wedding rehearsal dinner and her 27th birthday.

About her upcoming wedding, she shared, “I always loved the ’20s era and the look of everything. Me and Jionni actually watched the movie together and it was actually Jionni’s idea to do a Great Gatsby theme wedding. We invited 300 people, but with everybody bringing a guest, it’s more like 400.” That’s a lot of people! And the wedding party includes 17 groomsmen, 15 bridesmaids, and 8 children, including Lorenzo and Giovanni

Jionni and Snooki‘s wedding is rumored to be this Saturday, November 29th. Check out a few pictures from the rehearsal dinner below. In attendance were Snooki’s bestie Jenni “JWoww” Farley (of course) and former Jersey Shore stars Sammi Giancola and Deena Cortese

Phaedra Parks

As always, it has been a busy week for reality TV news, filled with ups, downs, and crazy drama. Real Housewives of Atlanta star Phaedra Parks opened up about her soon-to-be ex-husband and her co-stars on Ellen.

Joe Giudice stopped by his home away from home, the courthouse, to settle his driver’s license fraud case, while Teresa Giudice‘s crisis PR manager <eye roll> talked “lessons learned” and “a tell-all book” with the press.

Jionni and Snooki

Jionni LaValle and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi‘s time as basement dwellers has come to an end. Jionni, Snooki, and Lorenzo had been living in Jionni’s parents’ basement while waiting for their new house to be built. They bought land late 2012, construction began early 2013, and they moved in last month. Snooki‘s plan for her dream home included “a big playroom for the kids, a big backyard, a pool, and a big kitchen for Sunday dinners with the family.”

Unlike other reality TV stars who shall remain nameless, I believe Snooki has managed her money well and can legitimately afford her lovely new home. She’s come a long way since her days on Jersey Shore and built quite an impressive empire. Snooki’s products include clothing, sunglasses, slippers, fragrances, nail products, jewelry, tanning lotions, books, and more. Not to mention, Snooki and Jenni “JWoww” Farley are still on MTV on Snooki & JWoww.

Check out pictures of JionniSnooki, Lorenzo, and Giovanna‘s beautiful new home below. Now all we need are pictures of that new baby!

Seriously!! That cannot be the body of a woman who just gave birth to her second baby just 13 days ago!! Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi posted the new photo to Instagram yesterday debuting her post-baby body and bragging that she can fit into her pre-baby jeans already!

When we first met Snooki during her drunken days partying on Jersey Shore, who would have thought that a few years later she would be the epitome of pregnancy health and a master at losing the baby weight?

In the selfie, Snooki wears leopard-print jeans, heels, a black top and a sweater with her long red hair pulled to one side. The mother of two’s legs look very fit and her tummy looks incredibly flat for a girl who has just given birth less than two weeks ago. New mother’s take note — this is how you debut your post-baby bod!

Speaking of debuts — MTV just released the trailer for the final season of Snooki & Jwoww, and the girls are ready to take us on a wild pregnancy ride.

snooki - baby

Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is a mom again! Our favorite pint-size Jersey Shore girl gave birth to her second child, a daughter, earlier today. Already mom to soon-to-be two-year-old son Lorenzo, with fiancé Jionni LaValle, Snooki took to twitter to announce the arrival of her brand new bundle of joy.

“So happy to let you know we had our beautiful daughter this morning Giovanna Marie LaValle. 6.7 lbs, full head of black hair & perfect,” she tweeted earlier this morning.

And we can only assume that Snooki is super happy that the new baby has finally arrived, because last we heard, she was over being pregnant.
