Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick Lost Nearly 20 Lbs. with a ‘Half Keto’ Diet

Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick Lost Nearly 20 Lbs. with a ‘Half Keto’ Diet

When you’re friends with Vinny Guadagnino, who better to go to for diet advice than the “Keto Guido” himself?

That’s what Angelina Pivarnick, his fellow Jersey Shore star, did when she wanted to drop weight ahead of her wedding to fiancé Chris Larangeira. And unsurprisingly, Guadagnino, who lost 50 lbs. on the keto diet (and gave himself the nickname), told her to try the low-carb, high-fat diet.

“So I listened to Vinny, which is so cute and I sort of did half keto,” Pivarnick, 31, told E!. “I kind of followed , but on Sundays I gave myself a cheat day, which I think Vinny does, too.”

“I basically followed what Vinny told me to do,” she continued. “Never in a million years would you think that I would be listening to Vinny.”

Pivarnick is also working out, but said her diet is the reason for her success.

“I do cardio. I really can’t lift weights because my back is injured from being an EMT,” she explained. “But I’m allowed to walk on the treadmill and I’ll do an incline sometimes. But it’s really all diet.”

And it is paying off for Pivarnick, who said she has lost nearly 20 lbs. so far.

“When I saw Pauly  and Vinny recently, they were like, ‘Oh my God, you’ve lost so much weight.’ And I was like, ‘Thanks, Vin.’ ”

Plus, her finance approves. “Chris loves it,” she said. “He’s like, ‘Oh my god, my sexy future wife.’ He says he can’t wait to marry me.”

Pivarnick is one of the many celebs who have praised the keto diet for helping them lose weight. Along with her and Guadagnino, Jenna Jameson, Al Roker and Halle Berry are all big fans.

Valedictorian Calls Out 'Regularly Intoxicated' Teacher and Other Staff in Graduation Speech

Valedictorian Calls Out 'Regularly Intoxicated' Teacher and Other Staff in Graduation Speech

A San Diego high-school student’s valedictorian graduation speech has gone viral after she used parts of it to call out what she saw as disappointing behavior from school staff.

San Ysidro High School senior, Nataly Buhr, took the stage during the June 6 ceremony, where she first genuinely expressed thanks to many of the adults at her school for “being so invested in your students’ education and well-being,” according to CBS8.

Nataly’s speech then took an unexpected turn when she called out — without naming names — certain teachers and administrative staff for failing to set a true example for herself and other students.

“Thanks for teaching me to fend for myself: You were always unavailable to my parents and I, despite appointments,” she addressed her counselor. “You expressed to me your joy in knowing that one of your students was valedictorian, when you had absolutely no role in my achievements.”

Another bit of Nataly’s criticism was aimed at staff in the school’s main office, whom she thanked for “teaching me how to be resourceful” in the wake of their “negligence to inform me of several scholarships until the day before they were due potentially caused me to miss out on thousands of dollars,” The Washington Post reports.

“When applying for a work permit, you repeatedly turned me away, despite confirming with my employer and my parents that all of my paperwork was filled out correctly,” she continued. “I’ve had to escalate issues with staff to an assistant principal various times to reach any sort of solution.”

But perhaps the most shocking moment was when Nataly turned the conversation to “the teacher who was regularly intoxicated during class this year,” which prompted gasps from the crowd.

“Thank you for using yourself as an example to teach students about the dangers of alcoholism. Being escorted by police out of school left a lasting impression,” she said boldly, concluding her speech, “I hope that future students and staff learn from these examples.”

Barbara Corcoran Says Brother Had Heart Condition Before His Death in Dominican Republic

Barbara Corcoran Says Brother Had Heart Condition Before His Death in Dominican Republic

Shark Tank star Barbara Corcoran is speaking out about her brother’s death in the Dominican Republic, explaining that he had a preexisting condition that led to his death.

“It’s made it to the news by now that my dear brother John passed away in the Dominican Republic back in April,” Corcoran, 70, wrote on Instagram. “He loved the DR and vacationed there frequently.”

“My brother had an existing heart condition and we believe he died of natural causes, but you’re still never ready for the death of a loved one,” she continued.

Corcoran then addressed the seemingly unrelated mysterious deaths of several American tourists.

“I’m overwhelmed with sadness for the lost lives in the DR and my thoughts are with the families who have lost their loved ones,” she writes. “Thank you for all of your thoughts and good wishes. I appreciate your love and kindness.”

John Corcoran, 64, was on vacation with a longtime friend when he had a heart attack, his family tells PEOPLE. Although reports published Wednesday alleged that his death was mysterious, his daughter told PEOPLE that they have all the answers that they need and are moving forward with the grieving process.

“My father had a heart condition,” Nichole Lande tells PEOPLE, “so his death didn’t come as a complete shock to us. Obviously, we didn’t expect him to die, and we are devastated. But it’s just a coincidence that it happened in the Dominican Republic like those other deaths.”

Unlike the other deaths that happened at resorts in Punta Cana, John’s situation was completely different.

“They were staying at a private home,” Lande continues. “There was no minibar, no malfunctioning air conditioner, nothing like the other cases. So this isn’t a mystery to us.

“It’s just the sad loss of a father and grandfather who everyone is missing right now. He was a loving, wonderful man from a big family, and lots of people are mourning his loss.”

Cardi B Says She's Never 'Getting Surgery Again' After Canceling Shows Due to Liposuction

Cardi B Says She's Never 'Getting Surgery Again' After Canceling Shows Due to Liposuction

Cardi B is swearing off of plastic surgery.

After canceling and postponing a series of shows to recover from liposuction surgery, the 26-year-old singer declared on Twitter on Wednesday that she was hitting the gym to avoid ever “getting surgery again.”

“I been working out for the past two weeks cause bitch I ain’t getting surgery again,” she explained, before sharing one positive side effect of her new workout routine. “Let me tell you I haven’t got a headache ever since.”

Days before her tweet, the rapper had shared a photo of her swollen feet to show the negative side effects of her liposuction procedure.

“Look how swollen my feet get every time I take a plane, imagine my body,” she posted on her Instagram Story. “Reasons why doctors told me to chill on shows.”

“My stomach gets even more puffy,” she added. “My feet and stomach burn when I get puffed up.”

The mom to Kulture, 11 months, confirmed at the beginning of May that she had liposuction after already revealing that she had a post-pregnancy breast augmentation.

“I shouldn’t really be performing because moving too much is gonna f— up my lipo,” Cardi told the crowd at the Beale Street Musical Festival in early May. “But bitch, I’m still gonna get my motherf—ing money back, let’s go!”
