Snooki celebrates birthday with condoms (seriously)

“Wrapping it up” took on a brand new meaning at Snooki’s recent birthday party.

The “Jersey Shore” star’s 23rd birthday at a club in New York City was sponsored by Lifestyle condoms, according to the Los Angeles Times.  And here we thought rubber was only traditional for one of the wedding anniversary years.

We could just leave it at that, except we would be remiss if we didn’t mention that the party also featured a stripper pole as well as other "adult" party favors for guests in addition to condoms.

Joss Whedon has mixed emotions about 'Buffy' reboot

Add "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" to the long list of movies getting a Hollywood reboot – and add creator Joss Whedon to the long list of fans who aren't thrilled by the news.

Yesterday, E! Online reported that Warner Bros. was readying a revamp of the movie with writer Whit Anderson doing script duty. "While this is not your high-school Buffy, she'll be just as witty, tough, and sexy as we all remember her to be," said producer Charles Roven.

But Whedon, who created the 1992 film starring Kristy Swanson and the 1997 series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar, thinks the idea of bringing back the bloodthirsty characters kind of bites.

Kate Middleton dominates the US weekly mags

On the same day that the British monarchy announced the date and location for Prince William's marriage (April 29, 2011, at Westminster Abbey), his bride-to-be has suddenly found herself the darling of the American weeklies: People, Us Weekly, OK! and Star all feature Kate Middleton on their covers.

People calls Middleton a "Perfect Princess" and boasts that it is "All About Kate." The issue promises "an inside look at the independent young woman who captured a prince's heart," including her style, her childhood, and, of course, her prince.

Us Weekly spotlights the elements that go into "The Making of a New Princess," such as the gowns, jewels, ladies in waiting and strict new rules. It tells how Middleton's life has changed forever and what she learned from William's mum, Princess Diana.

'Skating with the Stars': The cure for insomnia

Welcome to the show not found on Oprah's "Ultimate Favorite Things" for 2010, "Skating with the Stars."  The premise of the show is simple - it's "Dancing with the Stars," but on ice.

Host Vernon Kay began the premiere on the "Dancing" set, which happens to be right next door to the "Skating" set.  As he walked toward the "Skating" rink, we saw various crew members celebrating his arrival like he's Prince William.  Two minutes in, my wife asked the one question all of America was thinking at that moment:

Who in the world is Vernon Kay?
