Former Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi married boyfriend Jionni LaValle in a church ceremony Saturday in East Hanover, New Jersey, about 15 miles west of New York City.

The Record reported that among the guests were Jersey Shore castmates Sammi Giancola, Deena Cortese, and Jenni Farley. Polizzi currently stars with Farley in MTV’s Snooki and JWOWW. Seventeen groomsmen and 15 bridesmaids attended the ceremony, which had a Great Gatsby theme.

Polizzi and LaValle have two children, ages 2 and 2 months.

Cosby offers refunds

Bill Cosby is still performing at a suburban New York venue next weekend, but the comic is offering refunds to ticket holders who don’t want to go.

The Journal News reported that Cosby’s two Dec. 6 shows at the Tarrytown Music Hall are going on as scheduled.

But ticket holders got an email from the box office Friday offering refunds.

The email said Cosby’s management would reimburse patrons who don’t want to attend the show.

Cosby’s shows in some other states have been canceled after women came forward alleging he sexually assaulted them. More than 30 shows remain on his schedule through May 2015.

Cosby has denied the allegations against him.

De Niro’s new gig

The prime minister of Antigua & Barbuda appointed actor Robert De Niro as a special economic envoy for the twin-island nation in the eastern Caribbean.

The administration of Gaston Browne said in a statement Saturday that the appointment comes after De Niro signed a memorandum of agreement on Friday for a $250 million hotel investment in Barbuda.

Officials said De Niro and Australian businessman James Packer will help renovate and expand a former five-star luxury resort that closed several years ago.

Browne said he expects the deal to be signed late this month and for construction to begin in the next 12 months.

He said De Niro will help attract more investment and American celebrities to Antigua & Barbuda as a special economic envoy.
