It’s been three years since Snooki and her famous poof arrived at the Jersey Shore, and our world was forever altered. The reality star has had lot to celebrate this year: a new baby, a fiancé, tons of endorsement deals and now her 25th birthday. Who would have ever thought the tan Poughkeepsie native would hold such a permanent place in the hearts of Jersey Shore fans?
Now she’s all grown up and moving on to bigger and better things, but we hope she doesn’t chill out too much. We have a funny feeling we won’t have to worry about that, though. In honor of her quarter century making this planet a little more orange, we would like to look back at some of her most insane moments! And while we hope there are more to come we are definitely going to enjoy watching this somewhat toned-down guidette take over the world!
The news has been circulating for some time now but there were no confirmations till yesterday. Jessica announced the news on her Facebook page, saying, “It’s official, I’m joining Weight Watchers! The cool thing about the program is that it focuses on healthy habits for the long-term (and I can still indulge in my guilty pleasures every now and then too). I have actually gotten a group of friends together who are going to be doing it with me. You can join me too and we can share our experiences!” She also shared an update on Twitter, writing, “So excited to be a part of the WeightWatchers family!” According to sources, she’s pretty serious about getting back into fighting shape as well. One informant has revealed, “As soon as Jessica heals from the C-section, she is extremely determined to get back in the gym and work out. She wants to show the world and is excited to do it.” We have a feeling she’s going to get back into Daisy Dukes in no time!
This made me want to run out and get something for my Mom! Mother’s Day is around the corner, guys. Time to get some pampering done for the maters. Having said that, the timing of this “Got Milk?” campaign featuring Nina Dobrev and her mother, Michaela, is perfect and so incredibly wholesome! This is the launch of the “Like Her, Like Me” program, which aims at celebrating the powerful and positive bonds between mothers and daughters. Nina and her mom are also teaming up with Seventeen magazine, to hunt for three mother-daughter pairs who have that sort of tight relationship. The duo who wins gets their own “Got Milk?” ad, just like Nina and Michaela, which will be released this fall.
There’s a behind-the-scenes video right after the jump, which also reveals that Nina got her love for yoga from her Mom. It also explains the “Like Her, Like Me” program in detail, so have a look. Read more…
While chatting it up about life and rocking an absolutely adorbs ensemble at the Rock & Republic for Kohl’s Show at New York Fashion Week, Ashlee Simpson squealed her excitement about becoming an auntie. “I can’t wait for that!” she exclaimed. Ash admits to being a great sister to mom-to-be Jessica Simpson all throughout her pregnancy.
Even though Jessica may be older, lil sis Ashlee definitely has one up on her when it comes to motherhood. She gave birth to her son Bronx Mowgli back in 2008. We know she’s been offering Jess the love and support she needs, including lots of low key hang out seshes as the due date grows ever closer. Check out the video below to see Ashlee’s enthusiasm yourself. Who’s ready for Auntie Ashlee? We sure are!
If hearing Ashlee gush over her big sis isn’t enough, here’s 10 pics of Jessica looking absolutely pretty in pregnancy!
30 Rock stars Tina Fey and Jane Krakowski stopped by The Today Show this morning to discuss their show’s long-awaited sixth season, set to air (finally!) this Thursday. But the two funny ladies took a break from business for a moment to talk about their an even bigger news story: Beyonce’s birth to daughter Blue Ivy! Tina and Jane have something of a personal connection to Bey’s big news, having both given birth in the same New York City hospital as the diva. However, neither got spoiled by the docs quite like Beyonce apparently did.
“We had very similar experiences to Beyonce and Jay-Z,” said Jane sarcastically, alluding to Lenox Hill Hospital staff allegedly rolling out the red carpet for the famous couple. “My celebrity treatment at Lenox Hill involved taking a group breastfeeding class in a closet,” Fey added. “It’s clearly supposed to be a storage closet, with a bunch of other mothers, and a nurse grabs one of your breasts and another lady’s and is shoving them in a baby’s mouth.” But despite this, Fey has nothing but love for the Lenox Hill medical staff. Check out what else they have to say on motherhood, and 30 Rock (!) in the video below.
Look at Sandra Bullock and her baby Louis being all pirate-like. Arrr … it’s the cutest thing ever! The actress was ferrying her son from a pirate-themed birthday party in Brentwood, California. Which explains the presence of the skull and crossbones and tricorne. It’s not a new wave of mommy-baby fashion, sadly. Because Louis’ outfit — especially those boots — is totally awesome.
We hope you’re ready for a good old fashioned celebrity mom fight, folks. Because it’s Friday afternoon and that’s what you’re gonna get. Liv Tyler’s mom, former model and 70s heartthrob Bebe Buell, went on a major rant in Steppin’ Out magazine about what she sees as the parental failings of Lindsay Lohan’s mom, Dina. “Dina Lohan’s relationship with her daughter Lindsay disturbs me,” she said. “I don’t see a mother and a daughter there. What her mother has done with Lindsay is morally wrong and disgusting. She should back off.”
Buell knows a thing or two about tricky relations with her kids; for years she told daughter Liv that rocker Todd Rundgren was her father, in order to sheild her from the growing substance problems of her real dad, Steven Tyler. Clearly that’s a tough call, but Bebe feels like Lindsay would benefit from her hands-on style. “If Lindsay spent a year with me I could turn her around. I could have her winning her first Oscar in two years!” Her unorthodox technique? Kidnapping, mainly. “If my baby girl got that screwed up I would NOT allow to make her own decisions. I would abduct my child and I would make sure that I didn’t leave her side until she didn’t have those problems anymore.” Err, we hate to side with the Lohan’s on anything, but we’re not totally sure if that’s how “problems” of any size get solved. Regardless, you might wanna change the locks, Lindsay.
And she’s already got cracking, too! Gwen Stefani‘s Harajuku Mini collection for Target is going to be adorable, and we know this because of this sneak peek! The line will include cute cartoon tees, two-tone zip-ups, and tiered tutus in sizes 6 months to 16Y. The price ranges between $4 to $30. Expect the first products to arrive in stores and online November 13. A second lot will follow in January next year.
Of the collection, Gwen had said, back in July, “Harajuku Mini is a dream come true. I’ve always wanted to do a cool children’s fashion line inspired by the super-cute and playful kid’s clothing you find in Japan. The whole idea is about being creative, expressing your own individuality and having fun getting dressed.” Kids these days are so lucky! We’ve fallen in love with the little girl in these pictures, FYI. Call us suckers for tutus. Gwen looks pretty hot too, right? What’s your take on Harajuku Mini, guys? We reckon it’s going to be sold out! We’re imagining little Zumas and Kingstons running around and that’s always a good thing because those kids are stylin’!
Call us star-struck, but the celebrity dazzle in this photograph is blinding us.Ã‚Â Angelina Jolie and her family are currentlyÃ‚Â in London and we didn’t know this, but she seems to be quite chummy with Gwen Stefani! Or maybe their kids are friends? Either way, Angie took (some of) her kids — Zahara, Knox, Vivienne and ShilohÃ‚Â — to visit Gwen and her two sons Kingston and Zuma. They arrived around 5pm in the evening and stayed for approximately four hours. By the looks of it, they had a chill time taking Gwen’s make-up less face and mussed up hair into consideration. Angie’s got her “I’m a superstar” dark glasses on, natch. Wonder what that over-the-table conversation was like?
Beyonce is pregnant! Beyonce is pregnant! Beyonce and Jay-Z are having a BABY! Ohmygod you guys, this is the best news of the year/decade/century/of all time. The singer made the announcement on the black carpet of the MTV Video Music Awards tonight, telling paparazzi and MTV that she is indeed, carrying Hov’s baby. She proudly cupped her blossoming baby belly as she posed in a stunning red gown. We can’t wait to gush about this pregnancy for the next few months.
Offer up your congrats to Beyonce and Jay-Z in the comments below!
