We all know Snooki as the gaudy star of Jersey Shore. However, she is keen to shed this image in favor of a maturer and classier one. And what better place to publicize this reinvention than on Funny or Die. Ah, we had you there for a moment didn’t we?! Snooki plays a vixen in a melodramatic commercial for her debut perfume, Snooki, on the site. The video is a parody of a Calvin Klein fragrance commercial from the 1980s.
LaLa Vasquez filmed a Funny or Die comedy sketch in Griffith Park, Los Angeles on Friday, September 16. LaLa shot to notoriety by marrying NBA star Carmello Anthony and, of course, being the best friend of Kim Kardashian. LaLa started off filming in a demure and preppy outfit, but this quickly changed to her posing in a beige trench coat with nothing but her underwear on underneath.
Funny or Die is so overrated these days. It was hot three years ago when Will Ferrell used to produce some original and genuinely funny videos with them. But now it’s being used by D-Listers for publicity stunts or to spoof their ridiculous behavior in real life. Cough, Lindsay Lohan, cough. It’s just the circle of life.
Whitney is beautiful and nice, but bet you never thought of her as a comedian. Still, she tried her hand at comedy in a new Funny or Die video that captured Whitney’s latest date. It was an interesting one.
No, Really. Funny or Die has created a parallel universe. This one is a universe where pigs fly, unicorns walk the earth, and people can be invisible. This is a world whereAudrina Patridge is a rocket scientist.
In the clip, Audrina, who has been working as an assistant at Pratt & Whitney Rocketdyne in the San Fernando Valley, says, “I’ve always loved science growing up. It just never really came up on The Hills.” She’s been helping develop the next generation of liquid hydrogen-fuelled rocket engines, and added, “I know people don’t really look at me and go, ‘Oh, that’s the girl who does all the advanced engineering’. But it’s okay, this is who I really am.”
Whether or not you buy the rocket science thing, Audrina rocked this spoof. Thoughts?
Audrina is featured on the cover of FHM Australia for February 2011. We previously reported that she was their June pinup in the free calendar inside, and also gave you a small tidbit on her views regarding appearing nude in films. Now we’ve got a couple more answers from her interview with the magazine and she responds to the age-old question of whether or not theHills was fake.
So, come on Audrina, how much of The Hills is fake? I get this question a lot. It’s very manipulative and very guided. They tell us, “Okay, you’re filming Thursday night at this club at this time, so show up.” And you don’t really know who is going to be there, or what they’re up to, so you show up and last season Kristin would be there wanting to fight me. And you’d try and have a good time, and I would be like, “I don’t want to fight you,” and just leave.
Would you do nude scenes?
If I was passionate about the script and the scene was there in order to make the character believable then I would do it. If it was just a flash of a booty here and a bit of boob there then fine, but anything too intense and I probably wouldn’t do it.
We’ve started the voting for FHM’s 100 Sexiest Women In The World. Who would you like to be number one?
I love Mila Kunis, she’s very exotic looking. She did a spoof of me on the Funny Or Diewebsite. We do voiceovers at the same place in LA and I ran into her and we just busted up laughing. She was apologizing and I was like, “I don’t care! I thought it was the funniest thing ever. I’m glad they got you to play me.”
Before you answer that question, check out the Funny or Die skit she filmed for the website. On her official blog, Whitney wrote:
I had so much fun doing this video for Funny or Die! It was such a unique experience for me because it was a lot of scripted work and I had to be funny! I think I have a sense of humor but it’s a lot of pressure to try to make people laugh!! Hopefully the conext of the video is funny enough that I didn’t ruin it. It made me think of the funny emails I get from my parents but really I have one friend that insists on forwarding me every single chain letter there is…and she’s not over 25. This affects all of us!
Whitney seems both confident and worried at once. We happen to like the skit, primarily because we agree that the parents forwarding problem does run amuck. How do you think Whitney did during her first attempt at comedy?

Heidi revealed to People Magazine that she and her husband, Spencer Pratt, are parting ways- business wise at least. Spencer has managed Heidi since they met about five years ago.
Spencer is being replaced with a Malibu-based psychic named Aiden Chase. “After the incredible experiences I have had healing my life and truly connecting to my dreams with healer intuitive Aiden Chase, I have officially asked him to become my manager,” Montag says. “Having an intuitive psychic leading my team gives me an edge no one else has.”
“No longer is my husband the face of my business or managing my career,” she adds. “I am going to have Aiden Chase help manage my new life and career in a very different and positive way with light and love. The time for change is now. Never mix business and pleasure. We are no longer Speidi but Spencer and Heidi.”
Most Christians aren’t big into psychics, but Heidi is always the special case. Perhaps she’s jumping ship because of the album flop? Or perhaps she’s finally tired of all the negative publicity? But given that her name is pretty much in the crapper, we wonder if dropping Spencer, (who has a do-anything-necessary approach that may be needed for a woman who’s still trying to create hone her “talent”, whatever it may be) is the best idea.
Either way, things seem to be going well for the reality star. She has now “cleared all the negative energy in my life.” After filming a Funny or Die spoof with Ron Howard, she has signed on for a Ron Howard-related show business project and a feature film comedy, and will appear on The Tonight Show next week.
“I am so excited for my future and the bright successes coming my way,” says Heidi.
In the clip above, Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame dons a blonde wig and proceeds to spoof Lauren Conrad, though he says he doesn’t know who she is. He’s from England, but theHills is fairly popular there too. Daniel says he doesn’t know who she is because he’s “out of touch” with his generation.
