Snooki and Jionni: It's beyond puppy love. /Photo credit Splash News

Contrary to prior reports and her outright denial, The New York Post says that “Jersey Shore’s” lead meatball, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, is in fact pregnant with boyfriend Jionni LaValle’s child. The newspaper says Snooki has been shopping exclusive rights to her offspring story to various tabloids, and Us Weekly won the bidding war. There is no word on when Us Weekly will go public with Snooki’s story, or how MTV plans on handling this bit of news since Snooki and Jenni “JWOWW” Farley are currently filming their untitled spinoff in Jersey City. “MTV went into crisis mode after they found out,” the Post quotes its source as saying. “They’re trying to hide it because it would greatly affect the creative direction of the show.” Will a pregnant, sober Snooki make for interesting television? That remains to be seen…

Davy Jones: It was nice to be with you

As a little kid, I was a huge fan of “The Monkees.”

Davy Jones: Hey, Mr. Tambourine Man, play a song for me.

Although I might have been too young to fully appreciate his sex appeal, I definitely had a soft spot for Davy Jones. He was the cutest, sweetest Monkee of all – and that adorable British accent was just the cherry on top. (Plus, seriously, nobody – but nobody – looked cuter sporting a pair of maracas or a tambourine.)

Whitney Houston: We will always love you JUST LIKE THIS.

Another day, more Whitney Houston drama. In addition to the pop star’s Westfield cemetery plot being indefinitely closed to the public, tabloid rag The National Enquirer has made the tacky, tasteless decision to publish – on its front page, no less – an unauthorized photo of the Newark/East Orange native in her casket. The photo was apparently taken by someone who attended the visitation at Newark’s Whigham Funeral Home last week, and the natural assumption is that that same someone made beau coup bucks by selling it to the Enquirer. I don’t know about you, but I prefer to remember Whitney alive – and obviously her family wants us to, as well, otherwise they would’ve opened the casket during the televised funeral on Saturday.  The sight of her lifeless body (even if the funeral home’s restorative artist did a beautiful job) is the last thing I want to see as I’m checking out at the grocery store.

Happy Fat Tuesday!  It’s time for another edition of Only in Jersey!

If it’s filming in Jersey, takes place in Jersey, or is about celebs from Jersey, you will find it here.

All four judges of NBC’s “The Voice” – Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine – last night battled to add Wall native Charlotte Sometimes to their team after hearing her rendition of OneRepublic’s “Apologize.” “Charlotte Sometimes? I want you all the time, Charlotte,” teased Christina. “Well, you know, there’s enough of me to go around,” Charlotte replied. But it was Blake, who called her a “unique vocalist,” whom Charlotte ultimately decided to go with.

Only in Jersey: Remembering Whitney

Of all of the moving, beautifully spoken and sung tributes made today in memory of Newark-born superstar Whitney Houston, perhaps the most memorable of all was the one sung in her own voice, as her casket was carried from New Hope Baptist Church.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

RIP, Whitney.
