My name is Erin and I am a former Jersey Shore fan. Okay, that’s over with. Phew!
Back when Nicole (Snooki) Polizzi was just a wee little pickle-eating, hot tub-defiling Jersey Shore cast member, we might have gazed into her future and thought: women’s prison? pole dancer? But I, for one, did not conjure up “self help guru.” Alas, that is the alternate universe we are living in, folks! (Wait – am I in Hot Tub Time Machine and just don’t know it yet?)
This week, Snooki has taken to Instagram to share the publication news of her fifth – yes, fifth - book, Strong Is the New Sexy: A Kick Ass Memoir. “My 5th book is ready for pre-sale & coming out officially October 13!!! Doing tons of book signings and can’t wait to meet you!” gushed Snooki.
Nicole welcomed her son, Lorenzo, in 2012 and her daughter, Giovanna, in 2014. Over the weekend, Nicole and Jionni LaValle threw a joint birthday party for Lorenzo and Giovanna at Ort Farms in New Jersey. Nicole went all out with a Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse theme and everyone at the party enjoyed the fall activities at the farm.
We have Fashion Week photos coming out of our ears! Between the agency pics and what the PR reps are sending over to us, we are buried. The reality TV stars hit up the OK! Magazine NYFW party earlier this week and we have the pics from the pink carpet arrivals and behind the scenes!
4PM – UPDATE: Snooki took to Instagram to speak out about the allegations.
“This morning when I got a call from my publicist that a story was going to be printed on my husband “allegedly” signing up on Ashley Madison, I laughed- and said lets not even comment and give the story any juice, because it couldn’t be any further from the truth. But now seeing how it’s the “news of the day” and everyone is wondering what I think about it- here it is. Jionni is the the most humble, respectful, and most loyal souls I know. I mean hello, that’s why I married him. He’s a stand up guy who loves his family more than anything in this world. The fact that the tabloids can deliberately make stories up and print things like “Jionni LaValle ALLEGEDLY and MAY HAVE signed up on Ashley Madison” is absurd. I can see if there is proof in the story to make it legitimate, but to accuse my husband of something he had no idea about… HOW IS THAT LEGAL? I really didn’t even want to acknowledge this absurd story, but when my family is being bashed for no reason- mama bear is gonna say what’s up. So no, my husband didn’t sign up on that website to cheat on me. Honestly, if he wanted to cheat- he would go out and do it. Not sign up on a website and pay for it. Jionni is a good guy and doesn’t need his name being tarnished. Nor does our family. We did nothing wrong to deserve this. So with all of this said, I love you babe. And even though I’m a pain in your ass, I know you would never cheat on me. Especially on a lame ass website. @jlavalle5 #myfamilyrocks”
The Ashley Madison hack seems poised to single-handedly implode reality TV’s marriages! First Josh Duggar was caught, then Josh Taekman‘s account was unearthed, and now Snooki’s husband Jionni LaValle is being accused of secretly utilizing the services of the cheater website!
Reports are swirling that Jionni’s email has been found amid the copious data from the Ashley Madison leak. Jionni married Snooki on reality television last November, and the couple has two children together. They have had their ups and downs, but for the most part appeared to be pretty stable and low-key (Although Snooki was accused of cheating on Jionni in the past. #BeerGoggles).
Palms Pool tweeted, “Happy Birthday to Farrah Abraham! All eyes are on the sexy #TeenMomOG as she celebrates poolside at #DitchFridays!” Among those eyes were Jersey Shore‘s Pauly D, Pawn Stars’ Chumlee, and Dating Naked‘s Mikey P. Check out the photos from Farrah’s birthday party below.
As the Bravo upfronts are set to get underway this week, plenty of Bravolebrities are in town for show promotion. Last night a slew of reality stars hit up the OK! magazine So Sexy party. The Vanderpump Rules cast was front and center along with several Real Housewives stars and more!
Unlike Mike, the guido (who should own stock in a hairspray company) has fared far better in a post reality show world. Pauly D makes a killing as a DJ, and it’s only fitting he reward himself with a small treat every now and then.
