Radar Online reports that Jersey Shore cast member Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi spent a night in a Miami hospital while shooting season 2 of the show. It seems that the star overindulged at popular hot spot ‘Dream,’ getting so intoxicated that the show’s producer’s had to carry her out of the club!
The most intriguing part? The medical incident didn’t make the cut into the show! MTV producers made the executive decision to leave Snooki’s drunken drama out of last week’s episode, opting instead to show Polizzi interrupting costar Jenni “J-WOWW” Farley and boyfriend Tom’s attempt at “smushing.”
Even Jersey Shore has its limits!
Snooki talked extensively about her troubles with drinking at a recent MTV press conference. In regards to receiving a drunk and disorderly charge on a Miami beach taping the same season of the show, she said “Obviously I like to party. I like to have a good time but maybe I’m overdoing it a little too much. So right now I’m just watching myself and I can have a good time not drinking.”
No drinking for Snooki? We definitely can’t picture the Shore cast forsaking a night of drunken partying for a stay-in sober Scrabble night! But it’s probably for the best…unless she’s snookin’ for a stomach pumping, Polizzi’s better off laying off the sauce for a little bit – even if it doesn’t make the best television.
Who says a pirate can’t be generous? Johnny Depp donated £1 million yesterday to the hospital that saved his eight-year-old daughter’s life.
The Daily Mail reports that Depp visited Great Ormond Street Hospital unexpectedly yesterday to personally thank the staff. Last year, Depp’s daughter, Lily-Rose, contracted E. coli poisoning so severe that her kidneys failed. Production of “Sweeney Todd” had to be halted as Lily-Rose’s condition took a turn for the worse. But doctors at Great Ormond were able to save her.
“It was the most frightening thing we have ever been through,” Depp later said of Lily-Rose’s illness. “It was hell. But the magic is that she pulled through beautifully. Great Ormond Street was terrific, a great hospital.”
This isn’t the first time Depp has surprised the residents of Great Ormond. On Nov. 29, Depp donned his Jack Sparrow costume (which he had flown over from Los Angeles) and read bedtime stories to patients for four hours.
