“Snooki was blessed to have a beautiful baby. I hope for his sake this is a new chapter for her”

Snooki, partying on Jersey Shore is now over. You will cherish the fun you’ve had, but having new son Lorenzo Dominic in your life has changed your life completely. I just wish you and your fiancé Jionni LaValle a happy life.

I loved the cover story on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Some people may view her as a hot mess. But I see a young woman who is engaged to be married with a new baby and a changed attitude. A lot of people only see what she did in the past on reality TV: a lot of drinking and a lot of partying. But she really had no responsibilities then.

I can’t begin to explain how disappointed I was to see Snooki on the cover. An obnoxious girl who gained fame by being rude, vulgar and inappropriate on TV. Are there no talented, hardworking, special people out there making a difference who are worth writing about?

When I opened my mailbox, I looked upon the face of Snooki with shock and horror. Really? Snooki? Did you run out of people with talent to put on your cover? I can’t believe there wasn’t someone in the United States of America with courage, brains or athleticism who could have graced the cover of your magazine instead.

Congratulations to Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi for the new addition to their family! She is making better decisions and turning her life around.

The story on actress Dana Delany really hit home for me. My dad was 56, as was hers, when he lost his battle with pancreatic cancer back in March 1981. It is a type of cancer that is hard to detect and treat. We need more awareness. November is Pancreatic Cancer Month. Thank you for the article.

While I may be 59, Pink is one of my great motivators. Years ago, I went through a rough time. Her song “So What” with the lyric “I’m still a rock star” became my theme song. To this day I sing it and it always picks me up. Congratulations on what sounds like a wonderful life with your family. You live life your way.

I loved the article “2012 Paralympics: Their Time to Shine.” These athletes truly amaze me. They should be applauded for what they have done with their extraordinary faith and hard work.

Readers reacted passionately to our article on Wilhelmina model Robyn Lawley, 23. Many criticized the fashion industry for labeling a size 12 woman as plus-size. “Ms. Lawley is a beautiful, healthy, average-size woman and should be looked at in that way,” wrote Melissa Freeman of Raleigh, N.C. Lawley says she has been heartened by the feedback: “I’ve been overwhelmed by how many people have found my experiences inspirational.” She is also modeling again for Boux Avenue lingerie. “Curvy girls like me can be just as beautiful in lingerie,” she says.


In our Sept. 24 article on Stacy Keibler, we should have said she was wearing Hervé L. Leroux, not Hervé Léger. We regret the error.
