Snooki Nearly Died

America’s favorite guidette had a brush with death over the weekend. The pint-sized reality television star and faux Italian-American was partying with cast member Vinny at Purim nightclub in New York City when the club’s glass ceiling smashed and came tumbling down. Snooki tweeted, “Its okay Vin and I are still alive … Omg roof just collapsed at the purim event! We thought the dj was beatin the beat hardcore but nope,the roof couldn’t handle snooki and vin …” Phewww, she’s still alive and season two is still a go. [The Blemish]

Real Housewife Now a Lesbian

Kim Zolciak, one of the stars of Bravo’s The Real Housewives of Atlanta, has come out of the closet. The 31-year-old divorced mother of two has stepped out with Tracey Young, a DJ. The two have reportedly been dating for three months. According to Us magazine, “Tracy broke up with her longtime girlfriend to be with Kim. Since they've been together, Tracy lost a lot of weight and got really skinny for Kim. They seem to be beyond happy with each other.” [US Magazine]

Zoolander 2 Is a Reality

Ben Stiller said recently in an interview for his new movie Greenberg that he is working on a script for Zoolander 2 with Justin Theroux, who would also direct. Stiller said, “We are in the process of getting a script written. It’s in the early stages, but it’s gonna happen.” He also confirmed that, if Will Ferrell agrees to be a part of the project, Mugatu would be in the movie. “To me,” Stiller said, “Mugatu is one of the classic screen villains of all time.” [Us]

Wanted 2 Still a Possibility

Mark Millar recently talked about the possibility of a sequel to Wanted even though Angelina Jolie has dropped out of the film. He said that the movie made so much money – over $340 million in box office receipts – that it seems unlikely a sequel won’t be made. He intimated that a new character could be brought in instead of Jolie’s character. He said things change from day to day with project because so many people are involved with the film, so who knows what Wanted news will be popping up tomorrow. [STV TV]

Now that his diamond grill is in order, Lil Wayne is expected to turn himself in to authorities tomorrow and finally begin his one-year prison sentence stemming from a 2007 arrest on gun charges. Wayne will be formally sentenced in a Manhattan courtroom by Judge Charles H. Solomon after last month's postponement due to Wayne's dental surgery. Weezy is scheduled to enter his plea and authorities will then take him for processing at New York's Rikers Island. See ya on the other side, Weezy! [Billboard]

People Actually Watched Hockey This Weekend

A record number of Americans (just over 27 million to be exact) tuned in to watch the Gold Medal hockey game on Sunday afternoon between the US and Canada. It was the most-watched hockey game since the 1980 Winter Olympics when America beat Finland for the gold medal after winning the now-legendary Miracle on Ice game against Russia. [Hit Fix]
