Jenni "JWoww" Farley and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi are all grown up. The two ladies achieved reality TV fame with their over-the-top behavior, but now the pair say that they're in a new chapter and ready to leave their "Jersey Shore" days behind. "We're adults," Nicole says. "We're moving on to the next stage of our lives."
Since Nicole became a mom and lost over 60 pounds, her life has been starkly different from how it used to be. "I would wake up and just chug vodka," she says of her old habits. "It was like a party stage for me. Once I got pregnant, I was like, 'I don't want my baby swimming in vodka in there.'"
While the ladies don't regret anything they did during "Jersey Shore," Jenni says her big regret is something she didn't do: hit on Leonardo DiCaprio. She met the movie star one night, and, according to Nicole, "she got frozen."
"I still regret it to this day," Jenni says.

We all know that having good posture is important, but you might not know that having bad posture can affect your overall health. Jill Miller is a yoga and fitness therapy expert who says that the way we sit can affect our internal organs.
"Your pelvis is designed to house your pelvic organs, like your bladder, your colon, and your uterus, and it likes to be in an environment where it doesn't have all of these pressures forced down on it," Jill explains. "So if you sit in a way that tips your pelvis back, or if you are constantly crossing and uncrossing your legs, you keep altering the pressures going into that pelvis."
What happens after altered pressure? "Leakage," Jill says, and other side effects you wouldn't traditionally think of, like bad breath, heartburn, and indigestion. "When you're putting weird pressures on your stomach, that can alter the sphincter that allows food to pass," she explains.

If you’ve ever worked in a restaurant, you’re probably familiar with some behind-the-scenes drama that patrons don’t see. On “Vanderpump Rules,” viewers follow the lives of aspiring actresses and models working in the trendy West Hollywood restaurant SUR.
Stassi Schroeder is known as the resident mean girl at the restaurant, owned by Real Housewife Lisa Vanderpump. Though the title has been bestowed upon her, she’s not sure how she feels about it. “I don’t think I’m a mean person, but when you’re surrounded by crazy people…” She admits that being known as a villain gets to her. “Sometimes it does,” she says. “It used to not bother me. I’m just kind of harsh and direct.”
Things are much different at the restaurant, now, one year since the show first aired. Stassi says the regular customers have been replaced with fans of the show, which presents a unique challenge. “People are coming in with an opinion about you already,” she says, but that’s not al...Read More »
Have you ever thought, “I wonder if I can freeze this?” Bahar Taktehchian, editor-at-large of Shape magazine, stopped by "Daily Shot" to answer Ali’s questions about what can and can’t be preserved in the icebox.
“You can freeze wine, however, you can’t drink it afterwards,” Bahar says. “But you can freeze it and cook with afterwards.” Just pour leftover wine into an ice cube tray, and pop out cubes when you’re ready to add to sauces and stews.
If you’ve ever made a recipe with fresh herbs, you’ve probably had a whole bunch left over. Instead of letting your parsley, dill, or cilantro go to waste, chop up the remaining herbs, and place them in an ice cube tray. “Fill it with a little bit of water and put the remaining herbs in there,” she says. “Put them in the freezer and use them whenever you need them.”
Ever wondered if you could freeze a dish made with mayonnaise? The answer is no. “It’s...Read More »
- Ali Wentworth | Daily Shot | Wed, Nov 27, 2013 11:55 PM EST | CommentsHappy Thanksgiving! On this festive episode of "Daily Shot," celebs share what they’re doing to celebrate this special holiday.
Actor Mark Consuelos offers his appreciation for the primitive nature of the holiday. “Thanksgiving is the last bastion of hope of manhood that we have,” he says. “You’re allowed to behave like cavemen.... You eat, and you drink, and you sleep, and you watch football, and it’s all accepted.”
Chef Carla Hall cooks up a Southern feast and recalls one time she asked her sister to bring a vegetable side dish. “I didn’t think I had to tell her to cook the vegetables,” she says. “She came in with a bag of vegetables!”
“I will make an oven-stuffer, not a turkey,” talk-show host Wendy Williams says. “I will make a stovetop stuffing, but I will cut in some of my own ingredients. And we’ll light up the barbecue outside to make ribs.”
Illusionist David Blaine won’t make a turkey d...Read More »
