JWOWW and Snooki Are Not Actually Italian


Despite reports that Leonardo DiCaprio proposed to Bar Refaeli after the model sported a modest gold sparkler on her left ring finger at the Berlin Film Festival, she showed up ringless at an Armani event for Shutter Island last night. Simon Cowell, on the other hand, proposed to his girlfriend over dinner at Mr. Chow’s on Valentine’s Day. Apparently he’s “a big softie at heart.” Though he was spotted smooching model Anne Vyaltisyna last week, Maroon 5 crooner Adam Levine spent Valentine’s Day challenging women to games of beer pong at Southern Hospitality. Marc Jacobs president Robert Duffy’s been getting flak for spoiling all runway surprises via his newly found love for Twitter, and he was forced to delete a picture from his tweet page of a naked man pole dancing at Jacobs’s Standard Hotel after-party. While hosting a Fashion Week party at Rose Bar, Zac Posen took a break from his bash to visit Victoria Beckham, who was holding a rival fête on the Gramercy Park Hotel roof. And JWOWW confessed on Fox’s Strategy Room that she and Snooki are not actually Italian.

Ralph Lauren is getting criticized for making the Polo logo large enough to dwarf the American flag on U.S. Olympic team uniforms, causing Daughter of the American Revolution (who “control some of the most exclusive country clubs in the nation”) to discuss banning his products. Megan Fox admits to W that she’s “intimidated by fashion.” After being shunned from Real Housewives, Alex McCord and Simon van Kempen were denied entry to Lela Rose’s Bryant Park show. John Malkovich gave a preview of his brightly colored menswear line, Technobohemian, to a select group at Soho House. Though Sarah Jessica Parker is the new president and chief creative officer of Halston, none of her Sex and the City castmates showed up to Monday’s runway show. Though her rep denies it, Katy Perry might be working on a shoe line with Steve Madden. And Lisa Rinna, who’s no stranger to Botox, Juvaderm, and silicone lip injections, said she was so disturbed by Heidi Montag’s People cover that she “had to take that cover off the magazine before it came in the house.”

When Allure asked Jessica Simpson what she’s learned from past relationships with Nick Lachey, John Mayer, and Tony Romo, she responded, “nothing.” Oprah, meanwhile, refuses to have John Mayer as a guest on her show because she’s good friends with Jennifer Aniston. As is expected of him, Gerard Butler’s been flirting with playmates and Brazilian babes in Rio, when not hanging out with Madonna and Jesus. Kim Kardashian threatened national security by outing the identity of an Air Marshal on her flight via Twitter. Charlie Sheen’s wife checked into a Malibu rehab facility for substance abuse. Eight hours of salon time later, Mischa Barton went blonde. While living off of a $1,500-per-week allowance from her father, Britney Spears spent $700,000 renovating her home. And talk about a tough life: After a twelve-hour shoot involving naked women, Robert Pattinson reported to Details that he’s “allergic to vagina.”
