SNOOKI ADMITS PREGNANCY AND IS ENGAGED

****
NO MORE PEEING ON PORCHES FOR JERSEY SHORE STAR
****



Snooki



Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi who confirms exclusively with Us Weekly that she is 15 weeks pregnant -- and engaged to the father, beau of one and a half years Jionni LaValle.



And the Jersey Shore star and LaValle, both 24, know just what detractors are thinking, they tell Us. "I have different priorities now," reformed party girl Snooki says. "I don't care what anybody else thinks. As long as I know I'm ready and he's ready." Adds LaValle: "We are not going to screw this up." The once pouf-haired star and LaValle discovered the news "right after New Year's," she said. Snooki's first thought? "'S--t, I've been drinking!' I was worried. It was New Year's Eve and we were in Vegas, so I did go crazy." she admits. But the mother-to-be says her partying days are something of the past. “No more peeing on porches. Those days are over.”



Robert Pattinson



Also included in this week’s Hot Stuff items which include the scoop on Katy Perry’s secret texts with Robert Pattinson, Scarlett Johansson cutting of contact with Ryan Reynolds because of Blake Lively, Amanda Seyfried dating Josh Hartnett, and celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson’s star-studded baby shower.





HOT STUFF




Katy Perry




KATY PERRY: Secret Texts With Rob!


Pattinson has been reaching out to the newly single singer

She only finalized her divorce a month ago but Katy Perry already has another Brit in her life: Robert Pattinson! “Rob has been texting and calling Katy every day,” says a source close to the “Part of Me” singer, 27. Not that the Twilight star, 25, is angling for a hookup. “He’s just checking in on her,” explains an insider. “It’s not romantic at all. They’re friends.” (Pattinson is pals with Perry’s BFF, Raising Hope’s Shannon Woodward, 27.) In fact, now that her ex-husband, Russell Brand, 36, has been linked to other women, “all Katy’s friends are concerned about how she’s dealing with it,” says another source. Pattinson — “still going strong” with his love of three years, Kristen Stewart, 21 — should rest easy, though, insists a Perry confidant. “Katy is doing amazing,” says the source. “She is over Russell and feels like she’s been set free. Her hair may be blue, but she isn’t!”


Scarlett Johansson




SCARLETT JOHANSSON: Not Speaking to Ryan Now


Scarlett is seeing red! Ever since her ex-husband, Ryan Reynolds, took up with Blake Lively, “Scarlett cut off all contact with Ryan,” reveals a source. “She’s pissed.” The Avengers star, 27 (now with ad exec Nate Naylor, 38), had hoped to rekindle her romance with the actor, 35, says the insider. When they went to an NYC concert together in September, Johansson “was still trying to get him back,” explains the source. But her efforts were thwarted as soon as his Green Lantern costar, 24, began wooing him in October. Now, “he and Blake are very serious,” says the source, noting Reynolds is moving to NYC for her. “She gives Ryan a sense of home.”



Amanda Seyfried



Amanda Is Dating Josh!


A new Big Love! Amanda Seyfried, 26, has been seeing Josh Hartnett, 33, since January, sources tell Hot Stuff. “Josh likes to keep things low-key, so they’ve just been hanging out,” says a pal of the pair, who were set up by a friend. That seems to suit Seyfried. On a double date with her Gone costar Jennifer Carpenter, 32, and Michael C. Hall, 41, at West Hollywood’s Chateau Marmont February 6, a witness says, “She looked into him!”



Tracy Anderson



Star-studded Shower!


Fit to be spoiled! Celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson scored swag from a bevy of A-list fans at her March 3 L.A. baby shower. Gwyneth Paltrow sent a $500 Fresco
Bloom high chair for the girl Anderson, 37, and hubby Matt Mogol, 40, expect in May, while Jennifer Lopez and Courteney Cox contributed pricey items from her registry. Nicole Richie brought a blanket, toys — and laughs. Says a guest, “She and [Army Wives’] Sally Pressman kept telling jokes!”

SCARLET JOHANSSON FOR LES MISERABLES

****
THE WEB GOSSIP
****


Scarlett Johansson



LES MIS MYSTERY -- With names such as Taylor Swift, Scarlett Johansson, Lea Michele and Evan Rachel Wood all in the running to essay Eponine, in the forthcoming Tom Hooper-directed big-screen version of Les Miserables, the role seems destined to be a goldmine for whoever is chosen. We love Swift, but clearly if she is chosen, it'll turn into one big tween-event. Michele is a wild card choice too, but her Glee-cred could detract from the brilliant story line. Johansson on the other hand, would certainly bring a welcomed dramatic edge to the event, but we think Wood is the wise choice. According to reports, each actress knocked their audition out of the park. Whoever is chosen will join a star-studded cast, including Hugh Jackman, Russell Crowe, Anne Hathaway, Eddie Redmayne and Geoffrey Rush.


****



Barry Sonnenfeld



MUNSTER YOU SAY -- NBC’s forthcoming re-boot of the 1960’s comedy The Munsters is a go and will be directed and executive produced by Superman Returns-helmer Bryan Singer (remember how well that did?). The whole re-imagining has been done by Bryan Fuller who did the terrific showing Pushing Daisies. The Munsters calls for striking visuals mixed with all the classic-characters from the show. But, don't forget, Daisies was also helmed by visionary-director Barry Sonnenfeld, who earned an Emmy for his work and really did an outstanding job. In fact, some would argue that it looked so much better than it read. This will be one to watch for sure! To tell you the truth, after the re-boots of Charlie’s Angels and Hawaii Five-O – one that worked and one that didn't, I don't know whether I would have picked The Munsters. What’s next? Bewitched and The Man from U.N.C.L.E.?

Meryl Streep



THE CRITICS HAVE SPOKEN -- Interesting choices at this week’s New York Film Critics Circle. Best Film: The Artist; Best Actress: Meryl Streep in The Iron Lady; other winners include Jessica Chastain; Albert Brooks; and Brad Pitt. Moneyball won Best Screenplay and Tree of Life won Best Cinematography. Our choices would echo these, but, we also absolutely loved Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris.

Dell XPS Is A Dud



DELL A DUD -- We treated ourselves to a brand new Dell XPS desktop two weeks back and have spent since, up to three-hours-plus on the phone with their so-called tech advisers. Transferred to out-sourced persons in India, it was downright frustrating. Hard to hear and even-harder to understand. I almost hung-up several times, but fortunately my last call, the other day, to a nice man named Aidan, proved successful. Just seems to be, in these maddening times, something more is desired and deserved. Am I a Dell-dude ... not right now.

Aerosmith's Steven Tyler



DEVITO PASSES -- Don Devito, the longtime Columbia Records exec who was Bob Dylan’s most significant producer during the ‘70s, passed away earlier this week after a long and hard fight with prostate cancer. He did four albums with Dylan, including Desire, the Hard Rain and Live at Budokan live albums and Street Legal – one of our all-time favorites. He was also in charge for his Bootleg Series-Vol. 1-3; the 30th Anniversary Concert Celebration; Greatest Hits. Vol. 5 and The Best of Bob Dylan. In 2000, he produced Dylan’s “Things Have Changed,” which won the Oscar in 2001 for Best Song. He also produced albums for Aerosmith and Billy Joel. Rest easy Don...

CHICAGO ON CALL -- Monday night we attended the Musicians On Call event at B.B. King’s featuring the legendary group Chicago. Believe it or not, we had never seen the band before; even though I well recall playing many of their records when I was in college (!!!). Songs like “Beginnings” and “Colour My World” were progressive rock staples back then; but, I had some apprehensions about seeing them all these years later. Truth be told; many of these so-called legacy acts somewhat disappoint in concert … playing their hits by the numbers and certainly not rising to the live occasion at all. Chicago played a stunningly good show that touched successfully on all their hits and demonstrated that, even though there are just four of the original members left; their legacy is as pristine as ever and each musician played terrifically well. On a personal note: hearing all those original songs again … and, with a renewed vigor, was monumentally inspiring. The legendary group which began life as the Chicago Transit Authority was an anomaly right from the start; what band back then, had horns? (actually, the only other band that comes to mind were the Ides of March who’s big hit was the great song "Vehicle"). Chicago’s musical preparation was surprisingly intricate and that was one of the first things I noticed and appreciated about the band back then: how thought-out everything was. Surely, “Beginnings” was a tremendous song; both lyrically and musically. Hearing it again last night made me realize all over again … how really superb it is. Robert Lamm, one of the original members, was as good as ever. He is without a doubt the backbone of the group and even though he performed mostly on keyboards, his rhythmic guitar work on “Beginnings” was just terrific. I met him, for the first time, right before the show and afterwards realized I should have commented on his first self-titled solo album in 1974 (Skinny Boy). My memory is that it was just excellent. In addition to “Beginnings,” Lamm also wrote “Does Anyone Really Know What Time It Is?,” “Saturday in the Park,” “Dialogue,” and “25 or 6 to 4” … surely among the group’s more complex and provocative songs. The trio of horn/woodwind players (all the original members as well): Lee Loughnane, James Pankow, and Walter Parazaider were just outstanding. It’s funny, usually with bands that do employ horns, the players are staggered somewhere to the left or right of the stage; with these three, they're front and center, gesticulating with their hands and horns, and although it’s a shock at first … it gets real pleasing, real fast. These three, who obviously have eaten, breathed and lived Chicago for years, are the true heart and soul of the band; especially Pankow, who was all over stage. The original-members, now, dare I say in their late-middle age, were just terrific; my hat’s off to them. But, I guess working with stellar musicians and performing great material is the trick. Lamm mentioned the group's new Xmas album (O Christmas Three), which is surprisingly vibrant, was produced in fine fashion to legendary knob-twirler Phil Ramone. They performed several numbers from it ("My Favorite Things" and "I'll Be Home For Christmas"), but not before Lamm hyped the fact,"that these days, bands have web-sites ... not labels." Funny stuff ... and, right on the mark. “Street Player,” “Hard Habit,” “Old Days,” “Call On Me,” Hard To Say,” and a surprisingly vibrant re-tread of the old Spencer Davis hit "I’m A Man” (featuring a great Chris Wood-inspired flute solo from Parazaider) was superb. As I said, the band was just excellent, guitarist Keith Howland and keyboardist Lou Pardini perfectly re-created ex-member Peter Cetera’s vocals. It was all terrifically impressive. Also, drummer Tris Imboden and percussionist Drew Hester just brilliant. Here’s to Chicago … one of he best concerts I've seen this year! We saw our friendTom Cuddy who helped organize the event; PR-pasha David Salidor; and, Alissa Pollack, and Tom Poleman. Visit www.chicagotheband.com.

NO FIGHTING FOR PALTROW AND JOHANSSON

Scarlett Johansson


Superstar Gwyneth Paltrow is laughing off "lame" gossip that she had a falling out with Scarlett Johansson on the set of "Iron Man 2" . She is insisting she "adores" the actress. Paltrow reprises her role as Pepper Potts in the superhero sequel opposite Robert Downey, Jr. and Johansson joins the cast as the villainous Black Widow. Gossip was flying of a rift between the stars since they filmed the movie, but Paltrow is very adamant she gets on very well with her 25-year-old co-star - and especially enjoys her "dirty sense of humor."She tells People.com, "People tell me, 'Oh you had a fight.' They're pitting you against each other and I just think, 'Why do we need to make a problem between women?' I think that's the part that's lame. "I adore Scarlett. I loved having her on set. She is really funny. She swears a lot. She has a dirty sense of humor. She loves to cook. She's like a girl after my own heart."
