Well, this is officially happening. I’m not quite sure what to say about it other than my uterus is weeping. For some reason, whenever a celeb who’s significantly younger than me (Hilary Duff, Kristin Cavallari, etc.) gets knocked up, I take it as a personal affront. Leave one for me, guys. Anyway, as for our favorite stuffed meatball, Snooki says, “I have different priorities now. I don’t care what anybody else thinks.” [Us Weekly]
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]
From whale sperm to colon cleansers to the shape of a woman’s foot when she has an orgasm, celebrities did not disappoint during 2011 with their penchant for peddling suspect science in the world’s media.
In its annual list of what it considers the year’s worst abuses against science, the Sense About Science (SAS) campaign named reality TV star Nicole Polizzi, Republican presidential candidate Michelle Bachmann and American singer-songwriter Suzi Quatro as top offenders, with their dubious views on why the sea is salty, the risks of cervical cancer vaccines and the colon.

You may have assumed that Snooki’s lovely, orange glow was achieved by hours spent at the tanning salon, but she has another secret. The guidette shared a bizarre beauty tip from her new book on recent appearance of “Conan.” Snooki admitted that she uses clean cat litter to exfoliate her skin. “Yeah, well, I definitely, um, like to Google a lot. And I don’t like to spend a lot of money on, like, spa treatments, just because I’m, like, a cheapo. So I Googled what else I could use that’s, like, not so expensive, and it was… cat litter,” she revealed. When Conan pointed out that cat litter contained hazardous chemicals, Snooki shrugged and said, “I haven’t broken out at all yet.” I think yet is the operative word here. I really hope women don’t try this at home. After the jump, other questionable hygiene and beauty tips from celebs. [Team Coco]
After previewing her perfume last week, Snooki made her debut on HSN last night, selling that and some of her other delightfully tacky products. She showcased the many ways to apply her fragrance and explained how her sunglasses (which rattle like a maraca, and that’s a good thing) block out haters. We’re pretty sure she made a vulgar gesture with her slippers, too. Read more…
