Deena Cortese is posing for photos while pregnant with her and hubby Christopher Buckner’s first child, a baby boy due in December. And, in a truly historic moment, Angelina Pivarnick -- the dirty little hamster woman who appeared on parts of Seasons 1 and 2 of Jersey Shore and has since come back to haunt visit the cast on the first season of Family Vacation -- is attending the VMAs for the very. first. time. And, we’re happy to report, she hasn’t suffered any episodes of incontinence. Congrats, girl!
