Snooki, aka Nicole Polizzi, got her son Lorenzo baptized in the Catholic church over the weekend. She and fiance Jionni LaValle threw a party afterward, and it looks pretty adorable. The most adorable part, though, was that Snooks asked BFF/Jersey Shore costar JWoww to be Lorenzo's godmother. I don't know why I love their friendship so much, but I do. I think it's because it seems much more genuine than other reality TV friendships. Anyway, congrats to the Polizzi/LaValle family! … [Read more...]

As per the show rules, Ashley and JP's wedding will be televised on ABC on … [Read more...]

He's interviewed in this week's New York magazine: [His character Roman has] stabbed a traitorous ally, chanted vampire liturgy in Aramaic, and shagged the ancient Salome, … [Read more...]
