The Word: Snooki laughing all the way to the bank
This gossip columnist is guilty of saying a few negative things about the force of nature that is Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. And I’m not the only one.
“People are very, very rude to me. I’m probably one of the biggest celebrities who is bullied by people. The thing is, it doesn’t get to me. In high school, I got bullied so bad that now I am such a strong person,” the pint-sized star told Metro while promoting her new perfume “Snooki by Nicole Polizzi,” which will debut on Nov. 25. “When people do talk about me, at least they are talking about me, you know? It’s not really a big deal to me.”
But one thing you can’t make fun of her for? Her weight — girlfriend looks fantastic. Her secret? She stopped what got her famous in the first place. “I stopped drinking,” she claims. “I hardly drink when we’re not filming the show, so that helped a lot. Just eating right, grilled chicken, spinach, broccoli, lots of green tea and working out.”
Her perfume is just one of the many products being branded by Snooki. She also has three books out, a self tanner, and a new mobile app called Snookify, and she’s coming out with a new set of fake eyelashes next year.
From being bullied to selling her own brand of fake eyelashes. Is this a great country or what?

Here’s the woman causing the Bieber drama
It looks like Mariah Yeater, the woman claiming to be Justin Bieber’s baby mama, has a rap sheet.
Above is a booking photo, taken last year on Dec. 21 in Las Vegas, when she was arrested for battery domestic violence, injury/destroying property and threatening telephone calls. The reason for the hubbub? Apparently, Yeater showed up at an old boyfriend’s home, claiming he knocked her up (it is assumed it is the same baby that she later claimed Bieber fathered). A fight broke out, Yeater assaulted the guy, and she was arrested, according to TMZ.com.
This doesn’t mean that Yeater isn’t telling the truth about Bieber, but it certainly puts a dent in her credibility. There is no word on when the paternity test is scheduled, but maybe instead of blood work, they should just see if that baby can dance like Usher? That should settle things.
