Snooki's Ex Upset about Her Dance with Potted Plant

Jason Merritt/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi’s ex-boyfriend Emilio Masella is lashing out at MTV’s Jersey Shore producers for "turning Nicole into an alcoholic."

Masella, who dated Snooki for two months last year, was not happy about her alcohol-infused, plant-dance video that recently made the rounds online.  The clip shows a visibly intoxicated Snooki dancing with a potted plant.

He tweeted, "This is Disgusting. MTV's Jersey Shore is turning Nicole into an Alcoholic. They are killin her liver. That's not the nicole I knew! Poor girl."

However, Masella stopped short of blaming the Jersey Shore cast member for her own bad behavior, writing, "The Vid on TMZ with Nicole Dancing with the plant, is a total embarrassment. I blame Production."

"They won't learn till she hurts herself," he added.

Snooki has already come close to injury while intoxicated.  Last season, she did a face plant on a New Jersey beach and was subsequently arrested.

Andy Dick Arrested for Public Intoxication

Riverside County Sheriff's Department(TEMECULA, Calif.) -- Looks like Andy Dick's lengthy struggle with sobriety has hit a speed bump.

The comic and actor was arrested Monday night for disorderly conduct at a Temecula, California restaurant, reports E! Online.

A police spokesman said, "Mr. Dick was intoxicated" and had been "causing a disturbance."  Specifics of the incident are not clear, although the spokesman did say, "He was unable to care for his own safety and we arrested him for public intoxication.  He was transported to our local facility here."

Dick wasn't charged, nor will he face any legal action or pay any fines, since there was no physical confrontation.  He was released from jail when he sobered up.

Dick, who has done a stint on Celebrity Rehab, has a well-known history of substance abuse, as well as brushes with the law.  In January of last year, police in West Virginia arrested him for groping a man's crotch and repeatedly kissing him.  In 2008, he was arrested in Murrieta, California for pulling down a teenage girl's shirt.

Photo Courtesy - WireImage/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) -- Contrary to a report by TMZ, Christina Aguilera was not arrested for public intoxication on Tuesday morning. According to a statement provided to ABC News by the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department, Christina was detained -- not arrested -- because she was intoxicated and "not able to care for her safety."  She was taken into custody, and officials stress she was not involved in any criminal activity.  She will be released, officials say, when she can "safely care for herself."

Officials confirm that Christina's boyfriend, Matt Rutler, was arrested for driving under the influence.  Christina was a passenger in the car which was stopped in West Hollywood at 2:45am Tuesday.  That was when the deputies who pulled Rutler over determined that Christina was intoxicated.

The recently-divorced Aguilera has been under a microscope lately after a series of public missteps, including blowing a lyric of the national anthem at the Super Bowl, stumbling onstage at the Grammys, and allegedly misbehaving at a celebrity party.
