There’s some good news and some bad news for some of the gang from Jersey Shore. Somebody is getting sued and somebody is going to be an uncle!
Bad news first…Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is being sued by a Florida company called Performance Brands for failing to promote its fat-metabolizing cream. The company claims that they fronted the reality television star $75,000 to endorse the product via social media and personal appearances. However, as soon as Sitch got paid, he checked into rehab for his prescription drug addiction.
TMZ reports that the company is none too happy that Mike failed to perform his contractual obligations, especially since he originally lied about where he was going. Performance Brands wants all of its money back since he failed to disclose his drug addiction. Mike, of course, is firing back with his own law suit, alleging the company failed to provide him with the promotional materials necessary to fulfill his duties.
Rosie Pope is shaking her head right about now. Something tells me that Pregnant in Heels isn’t quite the same as Pregnant in Foam Platform Cheetah Flip Flops. Perhaps it could be a spin-off though, right? Our old friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi didn’t fare too well recently in her staple tacky platforms, taking a tumble in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. While tripping and falling in the streets is nothing new to MTV’s favorite meatball, usually it’s due to severe intoxication. However, no one wants to see a pregnant guidette taking a fall, given, you know, the fact she has a baby on board.
The Huffington Post reminds us that Snooki has touted her ability to walk tall (well, kind of) in heels during her pregnancy. The site reports that she told Good Morning America not too long ago, “I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them. I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.” Maybe not flats, but perhaps Snooki should bring back those beautiful fuzzy pink sneaker slippers as she moves into her later trimester. We’re glad to know she’s okay though!
And so it begins…The cast of Jersey Shore hasn’t been filming their final season for very long, and they are already duking it out in bars, getting arrested, and leaking nude photos. That didn’t take long, did it?
Radaronline.com is reporting that the crew (sans a pregnant Snooki) got into a massive bar brawl Friday night at Bamboo Bar in Seaside Heights. A source reveals, “It started as a small fight, then turned into a massive brawl. Jenni’s boyfriend beat up a few guys, Pauly knocked some guy out, [and] Ronnie [and] Sitch were all there as well, fighting off guys. Jenni sprained her ankle.” No doubt all of these shenanigans happened with MTV’s cameras rolling. I can only imagine the smack down that ensued if the fight involved Roger!

Here’s the most important news you’ll read today: Snooki tells In Touch that she’s gained only 15 pounds during her pregnancy. And it’s all in her chest! She is excited however to get a mommy makeover once she’s done breast feeing, excitedly telling the magazine she “wants to get a boob job.”
She’s also super sure that she’ll lose all her pregnancy weight “The baby weight will just drop off!” she says. Let’s wait until you actually have the baby first, Snooki!
In non boob-related Snooki news, new details are emerging on her suit against a lisencing company, SRG Ventures, who she sued in October 2011. The Jersey Shore star claims the company promised her she’d make 100 million over three years, instead made a meager $250k. The company countersued for $7m claiming Snooki’s antics made her really difficult to book contracts for, as no conservative brands wanted to be associated with her.
The Huffington Post reports that she did not want to be associated with alcohol brands (which is just ridiculous) and that she is a “crowd favorite” and “now one of the most recognizable faces in the entertainment industry.” Recognizable for getting wasted on television on a weekly basis! No wonder this company couldn’t find any jobs for Snooki.
Her lawyers see it as a matter of the firm misrepresenting their reach:
“The court papers allege that SRG lied about their connections in the industry and failed to secure licensing agreements in accordance with the parties’ written contract. We intend to litigate this case aggressively — SRG’s attempt to take advantage of Ms. Polizzi will not be tolerated.”

The release of the year’s least anticipated spin-off, Snooki and JWoww is imminent! Slated to premiere on MTV June 21, the show will feature the twoJersey Shore stars in their own paid-for MTV digs. Luckily, it’s not the bacteria cesspool that is the shore house. Snooki tells US Magazine that it’s much more feminine, “It’s very big, just think of a guidette Barbie house, that’s what it looks like. It looks like animal print threw up everywhere.”
At the time that article was posted, Snook hadn’t yet revealed the sex of her baby, and coyly hinted that she would have dressed her child like Pauly D if it were a boy. She’s now confirmed she’s having a mini Jionni!
With summer approaching, it’s always fun to remember those crazy gorilla juice heads and spandexed guidettes that know how to do summer right. Right? There is, obviously, a lot of changes going on with the Jersey Shore crew, but that doesn’t mean they are going anywhere any time soon!
In a recent interview with V Magazine, Snooki opened up on the ins and outs of filming a shore based reality show, sharing a few secrets of behind the scenes restrictions. “When we film I really don’t care what I look like. I just enjoy it and have fun. That’s why people love us,” she explains. “I’m overweight because we’re drinking and eating bad, but when I’m not filming I never drink and I eat healthy all the time.”
While that may be the case, Snooki defends her behavior by citing the MTV’s rules during filming. “You can’t leave without a film crew with you..If you want to leave, you have to tell them an hour before so they can get ready,” shares the guidette. “There are no cell phones, no TV, and you can’t read. You can’t write or pass notes. You can’t listen to music, you can’t do anything. It’s kind of like being in jail for two months—and people wonder why all we do is drink! It’s because there’s nothing else to do! It passes the time and makes it fun. If you’re sober the whole time, you will go insane and kill yourself.” That sounds a tad extreme, but that’s a meatball for you!
This week’s print edition of Reality Weekly claims that The Situation is in a spiral and it’s all taking a toll on him, despite his seeking helping at the Cirque Lodge in Utah. A friend tells the magazine that “Mike projects this image that he’s in love with himself, but inside, he’s really fragile and insecure. He has a really dark side and a lot of demons, which is why he developed a problem with addictions”.
The friend claims that Mike has to drink in order to feel comfortable in social settings and that he beds multiple women in an attempt to boost his fragile ego. “He gets such an ego boost if a woman wants to sleep with him. He’s always trying to top himself; how many girls he can have at once, how many Miss Hawaiian Tropic models he can sleep with, how many different girls he can have in one day. ”
It’s a whole new world, Snooki is pregnant and Jersey Shore will continue to film with her this year. Since the show is so reliant on drunken plotlines, many of us were surprised to hear Snooki was coming back, but what do ya know? Contracts are a powerful thing.
Show producer Sally Ann Salsano tells Zap2It that everyone needs to calm down, and Snooki can still have fun at the shore. “She’s pregnant, not dead.” She insists that the show won’t work around her pregnancy or hide it, “We’re not ‘Friends’ — we can’t have [Snooki] hide behind a big purse and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s a reality show — you follow what happens in their lives.”
As for the bizarre image of a baby bumped Snooki sipping cranberry juice out of those ubiquitous plastic cups at Karma, Sally Ann insists that this is totally normal. “This can be like her last hurrah. Everyone takes that last vacation before the kids. So this is essentially Snooki’s last summer at the shore without a baby.”
Yes, all pregnant mothers love to go clubbing! It’s so natural. While the producer isn’t batting an eye, Snooki’s castmates do admit to being a bit weirded out. In an interview with People, Vinny Guadagninosays he was surprised by the news, “I had no idea. Actually people would call me, like, ‘Is the show still gonna work?’…And I was like, ‘What are you talking about, she’s not pregnant.’ And then all of the sudden, that whole thing came out and I was like, Oh my God.”
Oh my god is right! That’s the reaction most folks probably had. Vinny does think that “She’ll be a great mom.” and that this was a needed transition in Snooki’s life, adding “I think this is a good wakeup call, so I think she’ll be cool.”
Not content to stay out of the spotlight, cast member and Snooki wannabe Deena Nicole Cortese has been making headlines for having, what appears to be, a brand new face. Deena, who usually has a fuller face, was photographed out and about looking not only thinner but like her face had been molded by a professional. Like all celebrities, Deena denies having any work done, other than a nose job.
She tweeted, “just to let ya know..I have not got any plastic surgery. yes in the past i have had a nose job..and i am not against plastic surgery at all..i have thought about getting it redone to round the tip but haven’t yet..and don’t know if I am.”
She credits her transformation as the result of “eyebrow thinning,” makeup lessons, and a new diet.
