UPDATE, 1:44P.M.: Praise be to sopressata, Snooki is denying the pregnancy. Drink on, girl. [MTV]

Snooki is pregnant with her first child by her boyfriend Jionni LaValle, Star magazine is claiming. Do we really believe she is willing to forgo pickling her uterus in booze for nine months to bring another little meatball into the world? Doubtful, as 24-year-old Snooki has the maturity of a 12-year-old 11-year-old 10-year-old girl.

Alas, fetal alcohol syndrome is not something to joke about, so we are hoping this is not true.  The mag also claims that the spin-off Snooki and J-Woww have been filming will have to be tweaked to reflect Snooki’s pregnancy … it’s also possible this rumor is just free PR. So take it with the grain of salt on your margarita. [RadarOnline]

  • People‘s cover article about Demi Moore’s woes is not especially surprising, yet still quite sad. “As Demi got older, she convinced herself that she needed to stay young and skinny to remain attractive to her husband,” a source told the mag. “She needed reassurance all the time that she was hot and sexy.” Wait, you mean Hollywood is cruel to aging women? [People]

Watch Video
  • Mark your calendars: “Game Change,” the HBO film about the 2008 election will air on Saturday, March 10 (the day before my birthday, ahem!). And if you’re not already excited, let this new trailer wet your whistle. Is Julianne Moore not the perfect Sarah Palin or what? Kudos to everyone at HBO for making a could-be-wonky topic like the campaign trail seem like a horror movie. [YouTube]
  • Madonna promises her Super Bowl performance will be “wardrobe malfunction-free.” Yes, Madonna said that. Fishnet stockings and crucifixes are presumably still on the menu. [Starpulse]
  • Ladyblog xoJane posted a gallery of “brave and fun” readers’ morning faces without makeup. In disagreement that the word “brave” should be applied to being sans fards, the ladyblog The Gloss is now collecting readers’ pictures  of cosmetic cowardice — that is, wearing makeup. [The Gloss]

Today’s Lady News: Susan G. Komen Cancer Charity Halts Grants To Planned Parenthood

  • Susan G. Komen for the Cure, the charity synonymous with breast cancer research, has halted grants to Planned Parenthood — seemingly caving to pressure from anti-abortion activists who have the nationwide clinics under investigation. Susan G. Komen grants mainly were used for breast exams (and other breast health services) for women who otherwise could not afford them. But anti-abortion groups have targeted those charitable donations because some Planned Parenthood clinics also perform abortions. A CEO of a Planned Parenthood in Virginia, which received a 2010 grant from Susan G. Komen for the Cure, told the AP, “We’re kind of reeling … cancer doesn’t care if you’re pro-choice, anti-choice, progressive, conservative.” [Washington Post]

5 Paychecks To A Better Makeup Bag

Real talk: when it comes to shopping, a single, professional lady’s eyes are usually bigger than her stomach. I am not just referring to coveting $250 sandals that you really don’t need. I’m taking about the way we try to tackle huge style or beauty problems all at once. We watch too many chick flick movies growing up with “ugly-swan-to-princess” makeover scenes and get the idea — the wrong idea, that is — that kickass personal style, gorgeous hair or the perfect beauty routine for you will come at the snap of your fingers.

The reality, which is a lot less sexy, is that these things develop over time. Few of us have a bunch of Benjamins to blow on a whole new wardrobe all at once, or stock a whole makeup bag at the beauty counter. We acquire these things over time and usually there’s lots of trial and error involved.

I’ll leave developing a better style to the folks on “What Not To Wear.” (I love you, Clinton!) But one think I do know about is makeup and how, over time, you can develop your own Big Girl Makeup Bag. I’ve chosen five types of products and two price points — one around $25 or below, and one above $25 — depending on what fits in your budget for each product. Five paychecks from now, you’ll be looking fiiiiine, girl.

Sitcoms for everyone! Mindy Kaling is the latest lady we love to get her own show: a source tells NYmag.com that Fox will be ordering a pilot written and starring the fabulous Miss K. The “Office” star will play an OB/GYN as ”young Bridget Jones type … trying to navigate both her personal and professional lives.” Obstretics and gynecology are actually something our girl Mindy knows about in real life, seeing as her mama is a gyno in Boston. I’m suspending judgment for now: I love Mindy Kaling as much as the next 20something liberal arts degree-holding urban female, but it remains to be seen where stirrups and Pap smears are funzies on TV.  [NYMag.comGuardian UK]
