“Jersey Shore” House Is STD Central

For all those folks out there who like to “Gym, Tan, Laundry,” the highlight of last night’s MTV Movie Awards actually came during the pre-show, where viewers were treated to the first 10 minutes of “Jersey Shore” season two. In the clip, the cast members begin the road trip to Miami—Pauly D and the Situation get their car stuck in the mud while setting off fireworks and J-Woww and Snooki get hit on by a clueless South Carolina boy. The clip was actually pretty cute, and a good reminder that this crew is fascinating even when they’re not trashed and hooking up in hot tubs. Speaking of, one of the most common questions I heard after the first season of the show was, “How do they not get STDs?” Well, apparently, they do. All the time. The Hollywood Reporter ran a round table discussion between Dr. Drew Pinsky of “Celebrity Rehab” and SallyAnn Salsano, a creator of “Jersey Shore,” over the weekend. In the interview, Salsano said, “I do a full medical [for cast members] but I also do a lot of STD stuff.” Dr. Drew responded, “Everyone on the set has to take [herpes medication] Valtrex.” To which Salsano said, “We hand it out like M&Ms! ‘Hey kids, it’s time for Valtrex!’ It’s like a herpes nest. They’re all in there mixing it up.” Eek. If you ever needed more motivation to stay away from Pauly D, the Situation, and Vinnie, let that be it. [NY Post]
