On Friday evening, Nicole Polizzi, better known as Snooki, tweeted that she was "a balloon ready to pop," and early Sunday morning she popped. At 3 a.m. Sunday Snooki and her fiance, Jionni LaValle, welcomed 6-pound 5-ounce baby boy Lorenzo "Enzo" Dominic LaValle into the world. A rep for Snooks made the announcement by telling MTV that "the world just got another Guido" and that mama, baby and dad were all doing great. Both parents took to Twitter with their new baby excitement with Snooki tweeting "HE'S MY WORLD!" and "being a mom is an amazing feeling." Meanwhile, new daddy Jionni LaValle compared the birth of his son to hanging out with his friends, tweeting "ill never forget old high school memories or the vacations I been on with my boys, I will also never forget 8/26/12 the day my son was born!" Going on vacation and welcoming your firstborn to the world are pretty comparable, right?
After Lance Armstrong decided to stop fighting the US Anti-Doping Agency's charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs, he was stripped of his Tour de France titles, but he has not been dropped by his sponsors. Nike, Anheuser-Busch, and Oakley sunglasses have all said they will stand by Armstrong despite the controversy. Other sponsors such as Trek Bicycle Corp, and 24-Hour Fitness have yet to make a decision and are still monitoring the situation. Experts believe that his work in raising money for cancer research, including the $470 million that Livestrong has made, will help to diminish the impact of the doping allegations on Armstrong's image and career. The Lance Armstrong Foundation actually reported a spike in donations on Friday, following the news of the USADA's decision, and said they had seen a huge outpouring of support for the disgraced athlete.
