Fighting words on 'Jersey Shore' tax aid?

We all know the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" has a curious relationship with politics -- Snooki famously blasted President Barack Obama for his proposed tax on tanning -- but now cast members might actually have a reason to fight the power. The show's production company applied for a $420,000 tax credit that would allow more filming within the State of New Jersey, but quickly learned that Gov. Chris Christie isn't exactly a fan of the show. Not only did he reject the tax credit, but he released a statement, saying that it was his "duty" to keep taxpayers from having to support "a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens." Wow, Gov. Christie. Why don't you tell us how you really feel?

Down-to-earth star

Canadian royalty Nina Dobrev was back on her home turf Tuesday co-hosting Free the Children's annual We Day event with Joe Jonas. But "The Vampire Diaries" star didn't just smile and look pretty for the cameras; she also presented her original design for a T-shirt whose proceeds will go to feed 6,500 kids currently attending school in Kenya.
