We’ve done our fair share of hating on Snooki, but it’s hard to poke fun at the gal when you hear stories like this: The Jersey Shore alum took to Twitter this week to announce that she’s an ordained minister—and one of the first weddings she’s going to officiate is that of her gay besties, hairstylists Bradley Moreland and Luis Miller:
Moreland, who works at Vidov Salon in New York posted a photo of him and his fiancé with Snooks earlier this month:
HuffPo’s gay voices reminds us that Snooki has long been an advocate of LGBT rights, once even going so far as saying: “”I’m praying I have a gay little boy one day,” when she spoke at a Trevor Project event in 2013.
Just when we thought the Jersey Shore was on the road to recovery…
A judge won’t stop the company that brought “Jersey Shore” to MTV from taping Snooki and her family’s summer at the Shore. Ocean County Superior Court Judge E. David Millard on Monday denied a request for an injunction aimed to stop 495 Productions from shooting the latest season of MTV’s “Snooki & JWoww” in a house on Pelican Island.
Berkeley Township, where “Snooki & JWoww” is being filmed, had previously tried to ban the crew from filming. [APP]
Snooki and J-Woww are filming a Jersey Shore spinoff called Why Are You Still Watching Us?Snooki and J-Woww. They’re “living” in a Pelican Island house in Berkeley Township, where a camera crew began filming last week. In response, residents got pissy. In response to that, Snooki got even pissier, telling the community it was “Absolutely sick and very sad” that people were “trying to ban my family from your neighborhood.” Now, Berkeley has cracked the whip, and decided that the home MTV shooting in is “being used for a commercial operation and thus is in violation of township ordinance.” Chris Christie, meet your new favorite township.

This is reality television. After a Today show appearance in Seaside Heights in which his wife pretended he wasn’t running for president, Chris Christie finally met his biggest enemy: Nicole Snooki Polizzi. The two have twitter-feuded because he thinks the show is dumb. He also single-handedly denied the show a half-million bucks. Because he thinks the show is dumb.
Here’s the Unofficial Transcript of the landmark exchange, captured on video by the Asbury Park Press:
Snooki: Why are you standing so close to me?
Christie: Someone asked me my opinion…
Christie leans in extra-close, trying to be goofy.
Snooki can’t suppress a smile.
Other woman I don’t recognize: I’m from Jersey!
Christie: I know you are!
Other woman: And guess what, I thought you did a good job with the Hurricane.
Christie: Thank you very much. I appreciate it.
Snooki: I just wanted to meet you, and just, hope you start to like us.
Christie: I appreciate it. Well, we’ll talk about it. Good to meet you.
Snooki walks away. After Christie meets JWoww, Snooki faces the camera for a quick one-on-one.
Snooki’s Preggers (For Real)! It was previously reported that Snooki, of Jersey Shore “fame,” was pregnant. She denied it. Now, sources say that she is three months pregnant and shopped the story around to multiple celebrity magazines before inking a deal to announce the news on the cover of US Weekly. [New York Post]
Wikileaks Releases FBI Emails About Joey Merlino. On Sunday night, Wikileaks released the first wave of some five million emails they intend to make public. Included in this group of correspondences were FBI emails that indicate that Joey Merlino might be re-establishing himself down in Florida to again become a player in the Philly mob family.

Sharks Drop Flyers With One Goal. Let’s hope you didn’t stay up to watch the Flyers play the Sharks last night. The game started at 10:30 p.m. EST and the only goal was less than two minutes in. Ugh. [Buzz on Broad]
TSA Instructor at PHL Takes Bribe. A TSA training instructor at PHL pleaded guilty yesterday to taking a bribe. After a potential agent failed the entrance exam twice, the trainer offered to take it for him in exchange for $200. [Philly.com]
Sixers Stomp Pistons Again. The Sixers snapped the five-game skid they carried into the All-Star break by bludgeoning the Pistons last night. [The 700 Level]
Irish Group Offended by Urban Outfitters. This time the Philly-based hipster store is accused of defaming the Irish for selling shirts with vomiting shamrocks. The Ancient Order of Hibernians in America find shirts like this culturally offensive. [Fox 29]
A Jersey wine shop has posted a sign to remind Snooki that she’s been banned from the property. The shop’s GM says that Snooki and Jwoww—who moved in just next door to film their new reality show—will not be allowed to get their booze at the store. So, it looks like the “stars” will have to trek elsewhere to get their hands on some booze. [TMZ]
Snooki says she will never vote for Chris Christie. She articulated as much via Twitter last week and followed that up by offering an explanation the motivation for her political alignment.
So, as the race for the GOP nomination heats up, I feel compelled to inquire as to which of the candidates has met Snooki in person. I’d also like it if all of the judgmental candidates were kind enough to bow out at this time. It would DEF make the whole process a little easier for all of us. Please and thanks.
Phew. That was a close one. I mean, pregnancy scares are no joking matter, but things are especially serious when a Jersey Shore cast member is involved and the fate of American culture as we know it is at stake. Snooki denied the pregnancy rumors on the Opie & Anthony show yesterday and reiterated that she was not with child while on Live With Kelly this morning. So, feel free to rest easy and go about your business as usual. [Inquirer]
