We almost inhaled our protein powder this morning when we read a rumor claiming JWoww had gotten engaged to long-time love Roger Mathews. According to the New York Daily News, the Snooki & JWoww star and her manfriend have been affianced “for a while,” but kept their betrothal mum in order not to draw attention from the arrival of Snooki‘s baby Lorenzo. Hmmm, a Jersey Shore star not wanting to steal focus? Yeah, doesn’t really add up to us. As it turns out, the story didn’t add up to Jenni either. “Ummm me and @RogerMathewsNJ are not engaged!!! Hopefully one day but don’t believe the bs reports,” JWoww tweeted after being peppered with congratulations. We, for one, are glad JWoww cleared things up. After all..have you seen her relationship with Roger on Snooki & JWoww?
Okay, look: obviously the only two people who know the true nature of a relationship are the two people in that relationship. That being said, everything JWoww and Roger do is recorded and put on television along with a dubstep soundtrack, so we’re pretty sure we’ve got the basic idea. Based on the first season of Snooki & JWoww, Jenni and Roger fight almost constantly over the smallest things. Seeing as how fights can be edited to look longer and more intense, we would be remiss if we didn’t point out that Roger constantly and loudly complains that they haven’t had sex in months…and JWoww jokingly confirms that he’s right. On television. We want every Jersey Shore castmember to be happy in his or her own way, but we don’t know if these two are ready to take the plunge. Maybe we can start with Deena getting married, and we’ll work our way up from there, okay? Okay.

Wearing Italian flag booties and a onesie with a chain printed on it, Lorenzo Dominic LaValle and his mama, Snooki, grace the cover of this week’s People. Not that you’re really paying attention to his outfit at first, ’cause that mug of his is distractingly cute. Which makes up for the fact that most of the quotes Snooki gives about motherhood sound exactly like every other magazine interview with a first-time mother.
“It’s a different kind of love that I never felt before,” she told the magazine. But she also made a promise that pretty much explains why the Jersey Shore is ending at just the right time, following the upcoming season: “When I got pregnant, everything changed. The partying is long gone. I’m a new person.”
Fiance Jionni LaValle and Snooki also explained the origins of their son’s name: Jionni knew a kid in his hometown named Lorenzo, and Dominic is the name of Snooki’s late uncle. “I did it for my dad,” she said.
Another adorable photo of the happy family is available on MTV News.

We knew this day would come. We just didn’t know it would be so soon. Variety announced today that MTV has decided to pull the plug on Jersey Shore after the show’s upcoming sixth season. Honestly, we applaud their restraint. It would have been way too easy to keep on trucking down the Jersey Turnpike until Snooki‘s baby started having babies. Better to go out on top, we say. The top being a massively pregnant Snooki shoving The Situation into the hot tub, of course. Besides, there are already so many things we’ll miss after JS is off the air, and we’d like to be able to haul ourselves off the bathroom floor after two, maybe three days of hysterical crying at the most. Things like:
Of course, the first child of America’s favorite pint-size party girl was born at 3 a.m. Sunday — Lorenzo Dominic LaValle, son of Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jionni LaValle, was probably ready to hit the club the minute he entered the world. The 6 lb., 5 oz. newest Jersey Shore castmember (we hope) was born in the wee hours at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston, New Jersey, MTV News reports. A rep said that the new family is “doing great.”
So how is the new mama feeling? “I am SO IN LOVE with my son Lorenzo Dominic! I had my little man last night, healthy at 6lbs! HE’S MY WORLD!” Snooki tweeted at 9 this morning, later adding, “Being a mom is an amazing feeling!!! I love my little man to death! Jionni is such a cute dad.”
We weren’t kidding when we said fierce. We all know that Jwoww has a dragon tattoo on her torso (you can see it in the picture on the left), but now she’s got something new to complement it. She’s stripped down for a new spread in Inked magazine to show off her new skin art — a huge tiger on her thigh, which is visible in the photograph on the right. That is, if you can even focus on it. It’s a little hard with the Jersey Shore star hitting those classic pinup shots in next to nothing while washing a pink Cadillac. And we haven’t missed the hot pink tips in her hair, too.
She’s also talking about her tattoos, and explaining what they mean to her, saying, “My dragon and tiger were both designed by my college advisor, Jon Squid. He was an art student but he’s also been tattooing for 10 years. He’s at Twin Moon Tattoo in Queens, New York. The dragon is something I have wanted since I was a kid. I drew one when I was 12 or 13, showed my dad, and told him that I wanted it tattooed on me. He told me to wait 10 years. Growing up I was always doodling dragons, and I waited until I was 21 to get the dragon. Then I wanted something on the other side of my body to complement the dragon, and Squid told me that the dragon and tiger symbolize good versus evil, like a yin and yang.” That’s why they’re also on different sides of her body, as she added, “Yes, and placement for me is big because I want to be able to show my tattoos off when I want to, and I want to be able to cover them when I don’t want to show them.” We haven’t seen Jenni covered up in sometime, so we’ll take her word for it. What do you think of her new tattoo? Inspiring? Or, not so much?

Having to pay a fine for “failing to use to the sidewalk” has to be the most embarrassing thing Deena Cortese has had to deal with since joining Jersey Shore (Just kidding! Here are photos of her bathing suit falling down). We’re glad Deena won’t face criminal charges after being hauled in for disorderly conduct last month, but there is something deeply funny about having to pay the government money in order to make up for your drunken street dancing. Of course, Deena isn’t the only Jersey devil who’s had a hilariously random interaction with the legal system. Here are our favorite Jersey Shore legal matters that had Snooki & Co. checking out the inside of a courtroom, not to mention breaking a penal code or two…

I think we’re supposed to be scandalized by the revelation that the cast of the Jersey Shore, and supposedly many other reality show participants, signed a contract with the following clause:
“Producer hereby informs me, and I acknowledge and accept, that the other participants have not been screened for any diseases, sicknesses or other health conditions (and specifically have not been tested for any sexually transmitted diseases) and I assume all risks of interacting with the other participants, including any consensual contact.”
This was uncovered by author and entertainment journo Seth Kaufman as he researched his reality-TV set novel, The King of Pain. Kaufman explained to the New York Daily News that TV insiders told him this kind of clause is common.
Celebrity couples come and go, but we know one famous duo who will survive until the end of time (or at least until their contract runs out). Of course we’re talking about Snooki and JWoww! From the moment these two exploded out of the small screen in a cloud of hair, booze and spray tan goo, we saw that those two had that certain special something. Sure, the Situation has his abs, Pauly D has his blow-out, Ronnie has his Ron-Ron Juice (fun fact: it’s not steroids), and Vinny has his…err, we’ll get back to you. But Snooks and JWoww possessed something greater: complete and total failure to give a f—.
We’re glad someone finally wised up and gave these two dynamos their very own spin-off reality show, the aptly titled Snooki & Jwoww. And even better news? It premieres tonight! So to mark this momentous occasion, we’ve made a little scrapbook documenting their friendship. If we were making an opening credits montage to their new show, we’d use these priceless pix. Is there a female equivalent of a bromance? A “femance?” A “sister-mance?” Meh, we’ll get back to you on that one, too. But whatever it’s called, these two have it. So head on down to the gallery below to see the 25 most hilarious moments brought to us by Snooki and JWoww. Enjoy!

It happens right? You’re in the surf, the tide hits and suddenly, your bikini bottom (or top) doesn’t want to stay put on your body. You turn beetroot red, pull the wandering garment back on and get on with it. But you don’t have camera’s trained on you most of the time, like this young lady does. But, who is it?

Snooki is raring to welcome her baby into the world. That’s the only way to explain why the Jersey Shore star treated an inflatable penguin to a day on the boardwalk this weekend. They played games at the midway, hit up the Ferris Wheel, and just strolled in the sun and took in the sights. Sounds like a lovely day…Too bad it’s a bird-shaped balloon. We’ve heard of child care training dolls, but this is starting to get a little weird. Your little bundle of GTL will be here soon enough, Snooks. So go easy on the Cabbage Patch Kids. In honor of her gung-ho approach to motherhood, we’ve assembled the 15 most hilarious photos of Snooki nurturing inanimate objects. It’s sort of sweet, in a kind of imbalanced kind of way. Maybe we should all just pitch in and get her a dog?
