Like a tan growing pale, "Jersey Shore" is fading into the TV sunset. Thursday marks the beginning of its sixth season - its last. It began as just another low-budget MTV reality show, with lower expectations, that would chronicle the fist-pumping antics of its ultra-bronzed, ultra-average stars who would be cooped up in a house in Seaside Heights, N.J. Then the series aired in December 2009, and it quickly and curiously morphed into a surprisingly potent...

Rocker Caleb Followill was singing a new tune Friday: a lullaby. The Kings of Leon singer and his wife, model Lily Aldridge, welcomed their daughter, Dixie Pearl Followill, on Thursday.  “Mom, Dad and baby are happy, healthy and enjoying their new addition,” a band rep told People. Pearl was delivered in Nashville around 1.am. local time, clocking in at 7 pounds, 11 ounces. Aldridge, a Victoria's Secret Angel, married Followill in May 2011. We at the Ministry suspect the new parents will have a blast play-dating with another Kings kid -- band member Matthew Followill's little guy Knox, who was born around the time Caleb and Lily tied the knot.

As everyone knows, part of the Faustian bargain of fame is that, in exchange for extreme wealth and adoration, celebrities also have to deal with haters. Sure, you get paid ridiculous sums of money, get lots of free stuff and date other attractive people, but you also have to put up with the vitriol. That's why so many famous folks surround themselves with an entourage of sycophants: to shield them from the nastiness. However on Tuesday night, Jimmy Kimmel subjected a few of his celebrity guests to the full wrath of the Internet.

MTV's "Snooki & JWoww" can keep things business as usual in a residential neighborhood on the Jersey Shore, a judge decided Monday. For now. Residents of Pelican Island in Berkeley Township, N.J., had requested an injunction against 495 Productions to stop the cameras from rolling, but Ocean County Superior Court Judge E. David Millard wasn't buying what they were selling, the Asbury Park Press reported Wednesday. Still in the mix: a zoning challenge filed last week by attorney Ron Gasiorowski on behalf of a neighbor two doors down from the house where Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Jenni "JWoww" Farley are doing their reality-TV thing.

LAS VEGAS - Mitt Romney introduced himself to Manny Pacquiao on Saturday night by telling the Filipino boxing star he was the guy who lost the presidential election. Reality television star Snooki's new boxing promotion group, Team Snooki, debuted on the major stage of MGM Grand Garden Arena and its fighter fell to defeat. Rapper and new promoter 50 Cent appeared to be the only one among the celebrity group to avoid experiencing such awkwardness, dropping from light standards to perform his new single, "My Life," as his star fighter, Cuba's Yuriorkis Gamboa, walked in. Then Gamboa found himself in a fight for survival.
