Originally posted 12/19/2012 04:00PM

Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi has traded in dance clubs for diaper duty, but that doesn't mean she's ashamed of her hard-partying ways.

"[My wild days] aren't really a big deal," the Jersey Shore star and new mom to son Lorenzo told PEOPLE on Tuesday. "Everyone thinks, 'Oh my God, what are you going to tell Lorenzo?' "

Explains the 25-year-old, "I was 21 years old and I did what everybody else did, but it was just on camera. [I'll tell him], 'Learn from my mistakes and once you go through them, you're going to know how to deal with them.' "

'The Situation' Takes His Shirt Off – for Kittens

Why Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino Took His Shirt Off for Kittens

Originally posted 10/23/2012 09:00AM

In Seaside Heights, N.J., Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino seems more likely to show ladies his rock-hard abs than his softer side.

But when it comes to animals, the Jersey Shore star trades GTL for a little TLC. This month, the reality star flaunted his six-pack for a cause, doffing his shirt on behalf of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals to speak up about pet overpopulation.

"I am happy that my fans are getting to see another side to me. I feel that a person has many sides to them," he tells PEOPLE of his decision to pose in a set of ads for the animal-rights group. "I am proud to be caring and sensitive, so I'm really excited that my fans are finally getting to see that."

Harley Pasternak Blogs: Protein Powder, Fiber and Vitamins

Originally posted 10/10/2012 12:10PM

I love food! So it's not much of a surprise that I prefer to get my nutrients from meals rather than pills, powders and potions.

But even without me as a customer, the supplement industry is BOOMING. Americans spend billions of dollars on products touted to help them lose weight, boost energy, restore hair loss or improve sleep. Just yesterday I saw not one, but two different cast members of MTV's Jersey Shore hawking weight loss pills on Internet ads.

When I was in graduate school, I worked as a nutrition scientist for the Department of National Defence in Canada.

My first assignment was to review all the research that had ever been published on supplements that claimed to increase strength, endurance, energy and muscle gain.

I was shocked to learn that many of the "magic pills" marketed to the general public are nothing more than hype. From smilax to velvet deer antler, and boron to vanadyl, there was no evidence to show these things actually did much of anything helpful.

It made me wonder why no one was asking for proof. Where was the hard evidence these companies claimed to have that proved their products were as effective as the advertising promised?

Originally posted 10/04/2012 06:00AM

The final season of Jersey Shore is quickly approaching, but that doesn't mean the party's over just yet!

Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro spent a night out at Bootsy Bellows in West Hollywood on Tuesday.

Wearing their signature T-shirts, the cast mates arrived around 11:30 p.m. but didn't spend too much time together.

Nestled in a VIP room, "Ronnie spent a lot of time texting and on his phone while Mike was laid back and relaxed," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "Pauly was the most social chatting with a lot of people."

Around 12:15 p.m. Pauly left the VIP room to say hello to Paris Hilton.

While there was no fist-pumping to be seen, that didn't stop the Jersey Shore stars from staying until the club closed.
