Snooki gets into another bar fight

It looks like Snooki is going for round two. The Jersey Shore star, who was punched in the face on the controversial first season of the MTV reality show, was kicked out of a bar in South Beach this weekend after getting into a fight with another customer.

Snooki (real name Nicole Polizzi) and her costars are filming season 2 in Miami and have shot scenes at the popular bar Ocean’s 10 in the past month. On Saturday night, however, things got out of hand.

After drinking shots with fellow cast member Jenni “JWOWW” Farley, the newly single Snooki got upset when a guy at the bar tried to pick her up. She mouthed off to him, using cuss words, and he returned the favor, a observer tells People.

“Then Snooki got really mad and threw both food and a glass of water on the guy,” a bar source says. “It got really ugly and continued with both of them cussing out loud. So we kicked them out.”

The altercation was captured on video and posted on

While Snooki and her costars have been photographed having a good time around Miami, another source tells People, “The cast is wearing out its welcome in South Beach.”

A rep for MTV had no comment.

Dancing: Evan Lysacek Is Ready to (Sci-Fi) Rumba

Straight from Dancing with the Stars contestant Evan Lysacek:

Hello everyone! It’s been another busy week for all eight couples left in the competition. I’ve heard that it’s at about this point in season — we’re almost halfway! — that contestants have trouble keeping up their energy. You’d think with the traveling that Anna and I have done the past several weeks for Stars on Ice that we’d feel run down. But It’s actually been the opposite for me because I’m so busy. When I dance in the morning it energizes me and I’m able to sustain that energy level through the skating show at night. I’m so excited to perform every on the ice, and that in turn gives me the energy to go back and start dancing the next day.

This week’s theme is the movies. We’re not required to tell a story from a movie or relate our routine from a movie, we’re just supposed to dance our hearts out to a song from a movie. That’s where things get interesting. Anna and I are doing the rumba this week to a song from a sci-fi action movie. I don’t want to give too many details away, so I’m just going to leave it at that.

The rumba can be a tricky little number to master. It’s requires loose hips and sensual moves. It’s the dance of love, so it can look really cheesy, especially if there’s not a natural connection between the dancers. Anna and I wanted to do something classy and romantic with our rumba. We liked what Pamela and Damian did last week. Their rumba wasn’t sexual — it was tasteful, so we took a note from them when we rehearsed our routine.

This has been the most challenging dance for me so far because the hip action in the rumba is so opposite from what I do on the ice. I love a challenge and I love working hard, so I’ve jumped right in to overcome the obstacle of trying to loosen my hips up. But when Anna and I rehearse on the road, we’re often in hotel ballrooms and banquet meeting rooms. So a lot of times we guess the size of the ballroom on the show and try to choreograph accordingly. We also lack a key training tool when we travel — mirrors. The mirrors in dance studios are there so you can see how your moves look and practice your technique. When Anna and I rehearse she is focusing her attention on not only teaching me the routine, but she is constantly refining my movements, my lines, my form. The woman is amazing.

It’s always interesting coming back to L.A. on Sundays to sort of measure and adjust and see where we stand amongst the group. I hate having to leave town and go on the road, but everyone this season has been great about keeping in touch via Twitter, texting, emails. Back in L.A., we all eat together and get ready for the Monday and Tuesday shows. The time we spend together is so much fun. I know I have said this before, but we all have become very close. I didn’t know that other seasons haven’t been like this until one of the producers said how cool it’s been to have a cast with so much chemistry on and off the show.

Some people have asked me if the video packages from rehearsal are accurate. Some of the packages have shown a few of the couples arguing with each other. And yes, that’s all true. The production team is very honest about editing the footage to reflect what really happens in rehearsals. It’s understandable there’s some frustration and tension when you’re trying to learn something brand new within a matter of days, so that you can perform it live on national television in front of, oh, 20 to 25 million viewers. There’s pressure and anxiety and short fuses every now and again. But just like you might fight with your brother or sister, at the end of the day it all gets resolved. It really is like a family dynamic in that respect. And I assure you, when we’re all together we’re all getting along. Each week we cheer each other on because we genuinely do want everyone to do well. And I think our camaraderie has been reflected in the ratings this season.

I hope you’ll fill up a bowl with popcorn and enjoy movie night at the ballroom tonight. But don’t get too comfortable in your easy chair — you need to remember to vote for your favorites after you watch the show! Happy viewing!

Josie Duggar Back in Hospital

After celebrating the release of their 19th child from the hospital last week, Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar had to take her back to Arkansas Children’s Hospital in Little Rock on Thursday at 3 a.m., when her vital signs began to drop unexpectedly.

“Dr. Arrington told us to never trust a preemie,” says Jim Bob, quoting Josie’s attending physician, Dr. Robert Arrington, co-director of the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit. “That is really true.”

Fortifiers added to breast milk to increase her calorie intake and spur her growth are the culprit in causing the littlest Duggar constipation after being at the family’s temporary home in Little Rock for just a few days, according to Jim Bob. The constipation led to her vital signs fluctuating.

After Jim Bob and Michelle rushed her back to Arkansas Children’s Hospital, “She’s doing fine now,” says Jim Bob. “They will watch her for a few days to make sure she’s safe.”

The Duggars brought little Josie home to the family’s temporary rental in Little Rock on Tuesday, April 6, so they could be as close to the hospital as possible while they ensured she was doing well. Today Josie weighs in at 4 lbs., 12½ oz., says Jim Bob.

Caring for a Preemie
Josie was born Dec. 25 at 25 weeks, after Michelle’s preeclampsia diagnosis caused an emergency C-section. Her birth, fight for life and growth are part of the hit TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting, airing Tuesdays at 9 p.m.

Now, the doctors are trying different combinations of fortifiers to find the exact combination that’s best for Josie, says Jim Bob – who, with Michelle, is continuing to learn about the ups and downs of caring for a preemie, he says.

“It seems like she will do great for a few days and then have challenges,” says Jim Bob. “We are so encouraged about how she’s doing, and it is amazing how she’s filling out. But, even though she is beyond her due date and over the four-month mark, she is still not at the weight of a full-term baby.”

Kids Understand
While the other 17 children living at their temporary home in Little Rock were happy to have their youngest sister around for a few days, they understand that her hospitalization puts her in the safest place possible, says Jim Bob.

“This is the very reason we stayed close to the hospital initially because they are experts at her care,” says Jim Bob. “They are used to dealing with these preemies, and this is the best place in the world to have her.”

While Jim Bob says they don’t know yet how long Josie will remain at Arkansas Children’s Hospital, “We really appreciate everyone’s continued prayers for Josie.”
