Heidi Klum and her new 28-year-old bae are raising their wine glasses on vacay to celebrate Heidi’s hot, topless bod. Or at least that’s what they should be toasting. The 44-year-old supermodel is absolutely slaying down in Cabo San Lucas with…
Mel B’s grabbing life by the horns pigtails … and clearly living her best life right now. Mel’s out on vacay in Desert Hot Springs, CA where she was hanging poolside in a pink print bikini and pink heels. She’s there with her hairdresser bestie,…
Recently, Scott Disick has been vacationing with his kids … and with Sofia Disick.
But after what many perceive as a very public taunting of Kourtney Kardashian over how well her kids are getting along with their father's new teenage girlfriend, Kourtney has been otherwise occupied.
Because Kourt was on vacation with her own young, hot, model — Younes Bendjima. Younes is 24 and gorgeous enough to keep up with someone as legendarily hot as Kourtney.
Now, it's Kourtney's turn to flaunt her happy getaway.
And while Kourtney's daughter Penelope is in one of these photos, Kourt knows how to separate parts of her life on vacation … and get some quality alone time with Younes.
From these steamy photos below, it looks like the two of them had the time of their lives.
Take a look!

Jersey Shore Family Vacation made its long-awaited debut on MTV last night, and the consensus among viewers seems to be that while the guidos and guidettes didn’t quite deliver the same bonkers energy and smush-room shenanigans of their initial run, it was nice to check in with TV’s most heavily spray-tanned cast.
Of course, not everyone was able to make it to South Beach to enjoy all the fist-pumping and facial fillers.
Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola was sadly absent from the reunion for reasons that weren’t made entirely clear in last night’s episode.
(In a recent Instagram post, Sammi explained that she’s in a “completely different place” in her life these days, and she wants to avoid potentially “TOXIC SITUATIONS,” which most interpreted as a jab at her ex, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro.)
But that doesn’t mean Sammi was forgotten.
No, the cast paid tribute to Giancola with a sex doll forged in her image.
The disturbing doppelganger even sported a t-shirt reading “I’m in a really good place right now” and spouted pre-recorded snippets of dialogue, most notably, “Roooon, stahhhhp!”
And with that appropriately tawdry blast from the past (and the help of a few dozen liters of wine) the initial awkwardness of reuniting comes to an end and the cast is officially ready to make Miami a much greasier place.
Of course, a lot has changed since the guidos parted ways in Seaside Heights way back in 2011.
Snooki, JWoww and Pauly D all have kids now. Ronnie’s girlfriend is seven months pregnant. Vinny is so committed to his keto diet he won’t even dog a slice of pizza while thoroughly hammered.
Sorrentino’s legal entanglements very nearly prevented him from making the trip, but when he did finally meet up with his former roommates, we learned that he’s matured into a very different Sitch.
The Situation is sober and in a relationship now, which should put him in a prime position to be incredibly bored and mildly irritated for the remainder of the season.
Of course, these days, Mike is actually well-liked by the rest of the cast (with the apparent exception of Ronnie), which means he’ll likely receive plenty of support from people who want to make sure he stays on the wagon and out of prison.
Frankly, we have mixed feelings about Sorrentino’s current … situation.
Yes, it’s nice that he’s grown into a better person, but will a sober, non-confrontational Sitch bring much to the table in terms of entertainment value?
And we won’t even get into the ethical questions about tossing a recently-convicted felon and a recovering addict into a lion’s den of temptation.
The premiere episode concluded with blackouts of both the electrical and drunken variety, as well as the decision to toss Sex Doll Sammi into the pool.
This led to Snooki losing her wedding rings, which in turn, led her to drunkenly arriving at the decision to go home.
Obviously, she’s not really gonna leave, and considering her earnings have been in the seven-figure range for nearly a decade now, it’s hard to get too concerned about her lost diamonds.
Ultimately, the final scene served to remind us that while Family Vacation may be entertaining at times, the cast will never be able to recapture the lightning in a bottle that was their first run on MTV.
While episodes used to conclude with barroom brawls, now we have concocted drama over lost jewelry.
All-in-all, it was a step up from the abysmally lame Jersey Shore reunion special that aired last year, but these guidos will need to step their game up if they want to continue leading fans into the smush room.
We’ve all seen the insane trailer for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation, and this reunion looks like it’s going to be bonkers.
But while most of the cast was begging MTV to make this happen, Sammi Sweetheart isn’t even going to show up.
Sammi Giancola took to Instagram to explain her reasoning.
“I have chosen not to join the show this season because I am at a completely different place in my life right now focusing on my businesses and relationship.”
Her statement continues to emphasize that, like many of her castmates, she is in a different stage of her life than she was when she first attained stardom.
“I am not the same person as I was when I was 22. At 31.”
And she says something cryptic that many fans found to be alarming.
“I am currently extremely happy in every aspect of my life and want to avoid potentially TOXIC SITUATIONS.”
But, despite dropping the word “toxic,” it sounds like she’s not trying to bash anyone.
“However, it was a difficult decision as I love my roomies.”
She announces what she’ll be doing instead of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.
“I’ve decided to focus on me, my future and what truly makes me happy.”
And she makes it clear that she holds no ill will.
“I will forever be grateful to ‘Jersey Shore’ and everything it has brought to me!”
We have to wonder if the “toxic” situation to which she referred was the party atmosphere or reality television itself, not the people.
She explains why she’s left reality stardom behind.
“I’ve just decided to live my life for me these days.”
And she gives a big shoutout to everyone who’s been part of her life.
“Also I am forever grateful & thankful for all of you!!!”
She singles out her fans in particular.
“Special shoutout to my fans, but I’m not going anywhere! Follow me and stay tuned, you never know what I could be up to NEXT!”
After posting that, Sammi wrote in the captions:
“I love you guys! Thank you all so much for your DMs, comments, messages & kind words.”
She says that they really do mean a lot to her.
“I read them all and am forever grateful and thankful for you guys!!”
And she got support in the comments from none other than JWoww’s husband, Roger Matthews, who wrote:
“Lots of respect for this as I said to you. Minus the money I see absolutely zero benefits to participating. You look happy and at peace. Stay blessed.”
Matthews did clear up that he wasn’t condemning his wife or anyone else:
“Different circumstances for different households. My wife is a grown adult and can make her own choices. Very proud of the businesswoman and mother my wife has become.”
He sounds like a very supportive husband.
“I would never tell my wife what she can and can’t do. Free will should always prevail. I wasn’t aware of what the show would be.”
In his mind, Jersey Shore: Family Vacation was going to be something very different.
“I thought the powers that be might want to show a new side to them. A mature side with [families] and children.”
That is adorably naive.
“I was wrong but to be clear I love my wife very much. Drama sells. I get it. Just not my thing anymore.”
It sounds like Sammi’s former castmates aren’t really clear on why she decided to opt out.
But Pauly D tells TooFab his theory:
“She must be rich! Maybe she doesn’t need the money. I’m trying to think about it, like, maybe she’s rich? I don’t know. We wanted everybody to do it.”
Honestly, most people would assume that anyone who would turn up their nose at a reality TV gig must be wealthy enough that they just don’t need money.
By now, we’ve all seen the insane new Jersey Shore: Family Vacation trailer.
But how exactly did that come to be?
As it turns out, it’s because the cast went to the network and begged for them to make it happen.
in an interview with The New York Times, Nicole Polizzi, known to fans and to the rest of the world as Snooki, revealed what it took to make Jersey Shore: Family Vacation a reality.
“We basically were begging MTV to bring us back,” she admits.
It sounds like she and her castmates had to do a lot of persuading to make this happen.
“We were begging everyone to bring us back.”
A number of cast members had appeared on an informal reunion, hosted by E! a few years back.
But it wasn’t the same.
And some of them felt almost adulterous for appearing off of MTV, the network that made them famous on the original Jersey Shore.
Jersey Shore was far from the last place where fans and viewers saw their favorite orange, beach-adjacent hooligans. They’ve all made sure to appear in the public eye.
Pauly D and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro both appeared on E!’s Famously Single.
Deena Cortese showed up on Couples Therapy on VH1.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino showed up on the Food Network, of all places. But the show was called Worst Cooks in America.
Snooki was a contestant on The New Celebrity Apprentice, which was hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and didn’t last very long, as Trump fans weren’t going to watch without Trump and those who hate Trump weren’t going to watch a show on which he was still a producer.
Snooki also made a scripted appearance television appearance on the CW series, Supernatural, as a crossroads demon, though it was several seasons after the series had jumped the shark.
Then, of course, there was Snooki & Jwoww, which actually ran for a few years. That was on MTV.
MTV also experimented with giving Vinny Guadagnino his own series, The Show With Vinny. That one … did not last a few years.
There was more to making Jersey Shore: Family Vacation happen than the original cast members asking for it, of course.
The time seemed right, for a few reasons.
Though many of the cast members are still relatively young, they’re all in different stages of their lives at the moment.
And a lot of people will be interested to see if their version of partying hard has changed now that so many of them are parents.
More significantly, from the network’s point of view, is that it looks like viewers are up for seeing some absolute disasters drinking and partying on television.
Apparently the success of Floribama Shore was a factor in deciding to give Jersey Shore: Family Vacation the go-ahead.
In fact, apparently the existence of Floribama Shore generated demand to see where the original Jersey Shore crew is now.
Snooki shares that her husband was very encouraging when it came to whether or not she should film this television event.
“He was like, ‘Go, babe, have fun,’” she reveals. “‘Make that money. Enjoy yourself.’”
She did admit that she did have to talk herself into it.
“I had to keep telling myself, yes, you miss the kids, but you can be a bad mom for a little bit.”
We don’t really think that this qualifies as being a bad mother. Maybe if her child were with her to witness all of the shenanigans, sure.
And she set out to party.
“Go drink. Go blackout. Do what you’ve got to do.”
For the record, it’s totally possible to drink and party and even get wildly drunk without blacking out. Just … putting that out there.
Since The Situation is headed for prison, this special will sort of be one last hurrah for him. For a while, anyway.
But this will give fans a renewed taste of their old favorites.
MTV is a network that focuses primarily on a teenage audience, but they’ve made it clear that Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is for returning fans, too.
It’s certainly going to be one wild adventure, and it premieres on April 5th.
Earlier this week, we learned the surprising news that Javi Marroquin is back together with Lauren Comeau.
Little is known about Comeau, as she and Marroquin dated very briefly last summer, and the relationship fizzled out no notice or explanation.
But it seems Javi and Lauren have picked up right where they left off, and Kailyn Lowry might be less than pleased with how quickly the couple is moving.
According to Radar Online, Javi and Lauren recently went on vacation to Kentucky.
Kailyn likely would have been just fine with this development (though she might have questioned the random-ass choice of vacation destination), were it not for the fact that Javi decided to take his son Lincoln on the trip.
“Javi took Lincoln to Kentucky with Lauren,” an insider tells Radar Online.
“Kailyn was really mad and yelled at him about it.”
Lowry was apparently so mad that she banned Javi from an upcoming family trip to Jamaice.
“Kail made it clear to Javi that he was not allowed to come on the upcoming trip to Jamaica. She was really mad at him,” the source says.
The official reason that Kail is so angry at Javi is that both parties agreed to only introduce their son to longterm partners whom they expect to be with for an extended period of time.
Yes, Javi and Lauren dated last summer, but they’ve been broken up for the majority of the intervening months.
Of course, there could be a second reason for Kail’s outrage.
It was recently reported that prior to getting back together with Lauren, Javi was working to win back Kailyn.
Sources close to the situation say Javi even texted Kail about his desire to to rekindle their romance … during his vacation with Lauren.
“From my understanding, Javi and Kail were planning to get back together when Kail found out Lauren was with him when he was away,” one insider tells Radar.
“He was even texting Kail about his love for her all while he was away with Lauren.”
If that really is the case, Kail has good reason to be pissed.
Tabloid reports always need to be taken with a grain of salt, but Lowry’s recent tweets have fans thinking this latest story is largely accurate.
“Sometimes i see articles and I’m like where tf did they come up with this info? And then sometimes i see articles and I’m like there’s really a snitch in my circle,” Kail tweeted earlier this week.
“Fuck the snitch in my circle,” she later added.
As for her co-parenting partnership with Javi, the former couple is apparently once again barely on speaking terms.
“She just told him he couldn’t come on the trip and that was it,” the insider tells Radar.

Ever since that first teaser trailer for Jersey Shore: Family Vacation dropped, the world has wondered what this over-the-top reunion is going to be like.
But we don't have to wait for the April 5th premiere date to find out what's in store for these orange hooligans.
A new trailer is out that reveals a lot more, and you can see that below.
Snooki exclaims "We're back, bitches!" in a drawn out way.
It's almost as though they had never left.
But they did leave — a lot of the stars are parents. They talk up their age a lot, Snooki herself is 30. They're at different stages in their lives, but they're hardly geriatric.
And from the antics in this trailer, in which they drink and drink and drink in South Beach, they aim to prove that they haven't slowed down one bit since they were first horrifying audiences.
Jersey Shore was a reality series that some hailed as deceptively brilliant social commentary and others believed heralded the collapse of society.
But … maybe it was never that deep. Maybe it was just a bunch of idiots living their lives on camera, you know?
It looks like, in some ways, this revival is going to be more of the same.
But things have changed dramatically for so many of these stars.
As we mentioned, some of them are parents, now. They have actual responsibilities.
So while this revival will allow them to "go wild" as they haven't for years, as Jenni "JWOWW" Farley notes, it's likely that they're going to take better care of themselves than they did when they were young.
After all, they'll be going back to their lives as parents after the cameras shut off. The responsibilities of being a parent continue even when you're not with your kids.
Speaking of children, there's one guy who expressed shock, nervousness, and excitement during the trailer because of his own impending fatherhood.
Ronnie Ortiz-Magro makes it very clear in this trailer that can't believe that he's going to be a dad.
As you may recall, he didn't find the love of his life on Jersey Shore, but he did in real life.
And now, as you can see from the baby bump in that photo, his girlfriend Jen Harley is very much pregnant.
Of course, not everyone's major life transitions are positive ones.
(Yes, having children is a positive life change if you want children)
No, Snooki teases in the trailer that someone is going to be behind bars.
"Dude," Snooki says at one point. "Prison is no joke. It's scary."
She then follows up with a more ominous statement.
"He's literally not going to survive."
Smart money says that the guy headed for prison is Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino since he pleaded guilty to tax fraud.
We don't think that fans need to be picking out an outfit to wear to his presumably public funeral, however.
He's going to prison for tax fraud, which is bad, but not a violent crime. He'll probably have an unpleasant time in prison, because prison is zero fun, but not all prisons are created equally, and he's likely to be placed with other non-violent offenders.
But … yeah, it's going to suck.
Also, these folks drink a lot … and talk about drinking a lot.
They comment on who smells like alcohol, and they're clearly going out to have a good time — fist-pumping, of course, included.
One might wonder how much of this is staged. How many drinks are watered down. How many explosions of wild excitement were the results of multiple takes and specific instructions from producers.
But it looks like Jersey Shore: Family Vacation is shaping up to be just as wild of a ride as the original series.
Plus, they're in Florida.
