!! OMG, Jersey She Wrote: Snooki to become a novelist !!

snooki.jpg
America’s pint-sized orange sweetheart is writing a book! That’s right: Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi– who revealed in a New York Times profile earlier this summer that she’s only read two books in her life– has just done a deal with Simon and Schuster to write a novel. While she claims she’s been working on it for “some time,” my guess is that “some time” means the two seconds it took her to sign the contract. My guess is that not only will Snooki not write this book, she won’t even ever have to read it. That’s what ghostwriters are for, obvs. The book is being titled Shore Thing (haha, get it?!) and it’s scheduled to hit the shelves at your local desktop calendar/greeting card store in January.

!! OMG, How Cheap: Newsweek Sells for One Dollar !!

newsweekcover.jpg
Well hey, if I’d known that America’s second-least-irrelevant newsweekly was going to be sold for a measly pile of pennies I might have scrounged in my couch cushions for the spare change to buy it myself. Too late now: Newsweek “Don’t Call Us Time” Magazine— which you might have read in the rare dentist’s office too hoity-toity to subscribe to InTouch (time to get a new dentist!)– was put on the auction block by The Washington Post Co. The Sheinhardt Wig Corporation a few months ago and news has come down today that electronics mogul Sidney Harman has purchased it for less than the cost of a third rate handjob in Bangkok. These days it’s all about the Washingtons. Or in this case, the Washington (singular). That’s right: Newsweek has been sold for one crisp dollar bill. (The 91-year-old Harman will also absorb the magazine’s considerable debt and has promised not to fire too many people.)
Well now I’m pissed! I want a magazine! I just found two dusty nickels and some kind of Mexican coin on the floor– what can this get me? Cat Fancy? The Good Men Project Magazine? Anything? Anything?
Sadsies. I guess for now I’ll just have to settle for this old OMG Blog.

!! OMG, Goodbye to All That Cooch: Wonder Woman Finally Covers Up Her Wonder-vaj !!

Wonder Woman is finally hanging up her star spangled panties and putting on some ladylike tights. The famous superheroine started her career in a little skirt thingy but quickly traded it in for her classic undies-and-bustier look (I guess because it was too easy to see up the skirt thingy when she was flying around in that invisible plane?) and is now finally opting for a more modest “fashion aerobics” look, which also includes a leather jacket and more elaborate bracelets.
The new outfit, designed by artist Jim Lee, will make its debut in the upcoming Wonder Woman #600. Not to worry, though: we may have seen the last of Wonder Woman’s side-cooch, but some things remain the same. She’s keeping the tiara!

!! OMG, How S-T-A-U-N-C-H: Little Edie Bouvier publishes posthumous diary !!


America’s Staunchest Character is finally getting around to publishing her diary– eight years after her death, and 80 years after she wrote it. The mistress of Grey Gardens wrote the diary when she was only eleven years old, and it’s now being released by her nephew under the typically Edie-esque title I Only Mark the Hours that Shine. It’s yet to be seen whether 11-year-old Edie is as S-T-A-U-N-C-H as the grown-ass character whom the world was introduced to in the 1975 documentary Grey Gardens, but I’m looking forward to finding out…
