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]
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.
