Gym, tan and laundry was not on the agenda — but Prince Harry did hit up the Mantoloking, New Jersey boardwalk on his United States tour to view damage by Superstorm Sandy and play boardwalk games with Governor Chris Christie and some kiddies.
What a good sport. We all know he would have much preferred some Ron Ron Juice and a night out at Karma with the gorillas.
They’re “not here to make friends,” and they’ll probably throw you “under the bus,” but these ancillary characters on some of our favorite reality TV shows serve a vital purpose: They are the pot-stirrers and trouble makers, the assholes that help incite fights and cause trouble. And like a moth to a reality TV flame, they’ll keep coming back, attracted to the warm glow of the production lights. On their own, these people probably aren’t interesting enough to watch (except Allison DuBois — I would watch her until forever) — but their brief time in the spotlight captured our attention, and in some cases made us question humanity.
Below, we’ve chronicled all the most awesomely trainwreck-y, fun to watch minor reality TV show villains. Let us know who we forgot in the comments!

“Be yourself on your wedding day, don’t go to that extent of ridiculousness … So my big thing from here until whenever my wedding day is just to live healthy … Just live your life so on your wedding day you feel healthy and you’re not starving in your wedding dress and ready to wolf down the whole cake.”
― Hey, that JWoww has a point! But, um, she seems to have forgotten what she was supposed to be talking about, which is AbCuts Sleek & Lean diet pills — the brand she’s the celebrity spokesperson for. Whoops! [Celebuzz]
Word has it that Jenni “JWOWW” Farley of “Jersey Shore” fame is engaged to her long-time boyfriend Roger Matthews. Don’t bust out the champagne just yet though because it’s all hush hush for now, as MTV reportedly wants her to save the big news for filming of season two of “Snooki & JWOWW.”
That’s a little anticlimactic, but congratulations to them if it’s true. Their relationship has been beyond tumultuous, but they truly seem to love each other, so I’m not surprised to see them take this next step, especially with her BFF Snooki settling down with a baby and getting engaged herself. It tends to happen like that with friends — when one jumps on the marriage-and-baby bandwagon, it starts a whole string of events.
And you know what the best possible event that could happen next is? A double wedding of course. Read more …
In my most solitary personal moments, there is nothing I like better than to watch “Jersey Shore” with my pants off and my mouth dumbly ajar, spooning with a bag of Lay’s. That shit fascinates me. My many private observatory hours of guilty pleasure screening have naturally led me to pick favorite cast members, episodes, couples, and fights, which is the hallmark of reality TV, no? Its very core intention is to make you invest time and energy into watching and thinking about these characters, who are actually real people, and that in and of itself is stranger than any fiction.
Anyway, whatever — my fave is the artist formerly known as Jenni Farley. JWoww has a sensitivity and lucidity to her that that the other housemates lack, and I was actually pleasantly surprised by how intelligent she seemed to be at many intervals. I also thought in the first couple of seasons that she was so naturally pretty, but things only got weirder and weirder from there. Why won’t this (no longer) perfectly good-looking girl stop messing with her face? Is it insecurity? Does she actually think she looks … better? Case in point: here she is, being the case study in how not to wear makeup, and what plastic surgery not to get. I’m sorry, but this is straight-up sad.
Oh, those demure ”Jersey Shore” kids! When MTV signed up Snooki, JWoww, The Situation, and the rest, it knew it had an explosive mix of sex, alcohol, and cheesiness, and the ratings proved this is what the people want (god help them)! But MTV isn’t stupid either. It knew this mix could get the cast into trouble — and I’m not talking about their many arrests. I’m talking about VD here, people. STDs. Sexually transmitted diseases. AIDS. Herpes. Gonorrhea. MTV didn’t care much if anyone got an STD, mind you. But it didn’t want to be held responsible for it. So apparently the cast had to sign a “VD waiver,” promising they wouldn’t sue the network in case any of the cast members got the fire down below. Read more…
Want to know how the “Jersey Shore” guidos spent the weekend? Of course you do! Deena, JWoww, The Situation, Pauly D, Ronnie, Sammy, Vinny, and Snooki headed to Toms River, NJ, strapped on, uh, aquatic jet-packs (not the technical term, I suspect), and had a little fun in the sun. Their faces are kind of priceless. Alas, Snooki was too pregnant and Sammy was too lame to participate. Click on to see all the photos… Keep reading »
Q: One of the most talked-about new shows has been Girls. Do you watch that one?
Jenni: Never heard of it.
The pop culture zeitgeist just exploded, because “Jersey Shore”‘s Snooki and JWoww admit they’ve never even heard of “Girls.” Take that, Lena Dunham! [NY Mag.com]
