J Wowww quits smoking!


No butts about it.

Jersey Shore’s Jenni “J-Woww” Farley, 28, is quitting one of her bad habits: smoking.

The MTV reality star — who just signed on for a second season — has been spotted puffing on SmokeSticks, an electronic cigarette that doesn’t contain tobacco or cancer-causing carcinogens, but still creates smoke.

Says the press release, “J-WOWW may be trash on the outside, but she certainly isn’t trashing her insides.”

She isn’t the only Jersey Shore actor who is cleaning up her act.

Us Weekly Fashion Director Sasha Charnin Morrision gave Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 21, a polished makeover.

“I feel like my grandmother!” she whined after seeing the final results: a shift dress, pouf-less ponytail and low-key makeup. “I wouldn’t be caught dead in this outfit. If I had to go to court, I’d wear this. That’s about it.”

Bachelor Matt Grant’s New Show: “Pimp My Bride!”


Forget those sappy rose ceremonies.

Former Bachelor Matt Grant has a new show in the works, and it’s called Pimp My Bride!

“[It’s] an organic follow-up to the Bachelor,” the British financier told at the Youth Run 4 Haiti event in Santa Monica on Saturday.

The show, which he wrote after filming the twelfth season of the Bachelor in 2008, was picked up by Warner Brothers.

“It’s about the groom being in control of the wedding,” he says.

In addition to Pimp My Bride, Grant — who proposed to Shayne Lamas on the Bachelor only to end their engagement months later — is also considering taking part of another new show.

“They’ve asked me to possibly do this Bachelor Pad show,” he tells Us. “It’s like Big Brother Bachelor with all the Bachelors in a house. I’ve thought about doing it because I’m obviously not famous anymore and it would give me fifteen minutes of fame!”

Bachelor Host: “So Much More Drama” Coming Up


Bachelor fans have already tuned in to plenty of scandal, but the show’s host promises that it’s only getting better.

“There is so much other stuff coming up that is a legitimate big deal,” Chris Harrison tells “There is so much more drama that comes that has much more to do with Jake Pavelka’s emotions and the show itself.”

In fact, more excitement is only an episode away.

“Next week’s rose ceremony is crazy!” he hinted to Us at the Kari Feinstein Style Lounge in L.A. on Saturday.

He didn’t say, however, if it promises to be more scandalous than the previous Bachelor headlines with Bachelorette Michelle, who didn’t even make it to the rose ceremony this week, and Rozlyn Papa, who departed the show after it was revealed that she had an affair with one of the show’s producers. Instead, he calls the affair scandal “a little bump in the road.”

“We never intended it to be that big of a deal but I think she has done a good job of making it a big deal,” he says.

How does Harrison stack this season up compared to the 14 seasons of The Bachelor and five seasons of The Bachelorette?

“It’s the best ever! It’s the most dramatic ever,” he tells Us. “It’s been good.”
