Want to get worked up in a lather over “Jersey Shore“? Take your pick of things to complain about. The words “guido” and “guidette” are offensive! Snooki got punched in the face by a drunk man at a bar! Nearly all the men on the show are sexist skeezebags who objectify women!
None of these are the complaints I have for the show. I, personally, am shocked, dismayed and offended that “Jersey Shore” has ruined hot tubs for me forever. Keep reading »
Trolling the internet this morning, I stumbled upon an In Touch story about Everyone’s Favorite New Show (TM), “Jersey Shore,” which looks like it’s getting picked up for a second season. And I’ll be darned if the magazine didn’t have pretty much exactly the same idea that Life & Style did two weeks ago—to make over Snooki, the Situation, Pauly D, and crew in markedly un-Guido gear. While Life & Style went for red carpet glam, In Touch decided to recreate the cast as Upper East Side socialites at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Meaning that Sammi got a cardigan, Ronnie a striped tie, and J-Woww a skirt suit.
But instead of finding this hilarious, which it should be, I just felt over it. Much like I felt at the end of last night’s episode, where there were more fights (one female, one male), more tanning (don’t these people realize that they’re at the beach?), and more Ronnie-Sammi crying sessions. I dunno—maybe I’m just being cynical. But are you guys still feeling the “Jersey Shore” phenomenon, or is this the beginning of the backlash? In case I’m in the minority, lots of cast news, after the jump. Keep reading »
I missed liveblogging last week’s “Jersey Shore” because it was, duh, New Year’s Eve and I was out doin’ some fist-bumpin’ of my own, but I’m back in biz tonight. On tonight’s episode, it’s Ronnie who gets in a fight, because clearly, someone’s gotta get scrappy every week. Join me (and maybe DeVore, if he’s not watching “Real Housewives Of Orange County”) at 10 pm EST! Keep reading »
Our prayers to the Red Peppers and Sausage Gods have been answered: Rumor has it that Snooki, The Situation and the gang are coming back for another season in Seaside Heights. (Duh of the century, right? MTV ain’t no fool.)
Apparently, Vinny told a group of admirers at the “Youth In Revolt” after-party that MTV wants the “Jersey Shore” cast back this summer—a piece of information overheard by a New York Daily News gossip columnist. Now, a PR rep for MTV hasn’t officially confirmed this bit of gossip, but let’s not get caught up in details.
The next order of business: can someone puh-leeze find out if our girl Snooki will be getting her own show, “Snookin’ For Love“? [Gawker] Keep reading »
I woke up this morning, looked in the mirror and couldn’t help but dispiritedly think: “If only I could throw a really dark fake tan, some rhinestones and a pouf on this situation. Maybe then I would be happy …” OK, not really. But I did come across yet another picture of Snooki and finally realized and even appreciated the effort that goes into looking like that all the time. And when it comes to such dedication, attention must be paid. How it has taken us this long is unclear, but what matters most is that you now will finally have a definitive guide to
looking hideous all the time “Jersey Shore” style. Keep reading »
Last night, our beloved Snooki
(best known for being the most lovable cast member on “Jersey Shore”
and for reading The Frisky that one time) appeared on “Jay Leno” and answered 10 questions for his “10@10″ segment and was as adorable and ditzy as ever. And she likely made yet another
enemy! When Jay asked what she would do to better the world, Snooki replied that she would install tanning beds in everyone’s home and
eliminate the Bump-It. The what-it? You know what I’m talking about! The Bump-It! That infomercial hair doo-dad which gives your crown a lot of volume. Snooki says the Bump-It is stupid, that she doesn’t use it — “I tease,” she said superiorly — and that no one should buy it. Ruh-roh. I was irked, however, when Snooki said that she doesn’t read and the last book she picked up was Twilight
— but was bored by page two, because it “doesn’t have pictures.” Now, I’m not surprised Snooki isn’t a proud library card carrier, but does she have to play up the dumb thing so
much? Girl, just be yourself. The world already has one Paris Hilton. Keep reading »
Seriously, what’s happening here? Is the universe about to implode? Apparently DJ Pauly D (on MTV’s “Jersey Shore”) got together with indie darling, Michael Cera, to film some sort of promotion for Cera’s upcoming film, “Youth In Revolt” (which looks HILAR, by the way). After the jump, JWoww shares her slice of pizza. Keep reading »
We’re obsessed with Snooki from MTV’s “Jersey Shore” for innumerable reasons, including her signature hair ‘do. Called “the pouf,” Snooki’s been rocking the look since she was 16 years old. Now she’s explaining how to get your very own (FYI, it takes her an hour and a half to do, but she isn’t the most low-maintenance girl going, so grain of salt): “When I get out of the shower and my hair is wet, I can scrunch it up and put the clip in and it stays forever, just because I have thick hair and it’s naturally straight. If people don’t have hair like mine, I suggest teasing it a lot and then just put hair spray in (product plug: she uses Paul Mitchell hair spray) and a clip. It should stay.” There you go, kids.

Well, I think we knew this was coming. Zero Tolerance Entertainment is hard at work on a porn spoof based on MTV’s “Jersey Shore” and, yes, you guessed it, the film will be called “Jersey Whores.” According to Fleshbot, casting has already started and we’re more than slightly underwhelmed by some of their choices. We know it can be hard to find exact doppelgangers within the porn biz, but Dylan Ryder looks nothing like Sammi Sweetheart. And seriously, can Taryn Thomas’ hair even hold a pouf like our beloved Snooki? One upshot to “Jersey Whores” is that, miraculously, the dudes cast to portray “The Situation” and DJ Pauly D are both way better-looking, if not the slightest bit guido-esque. Keep reading »
It isn’t a good day on the internet without a bit of “Jersey Shore” news, right? Snooki is campaigning for her own dating show, and Jenni “JWoww” decided that she’s primed to become a fashion designer based on her personal style (which she calls “Sexy Sophisticated”). Uh, OK. But while LiLo’s taking her leggings line and expanding into clothes, JWoww is focusing on one item — her now infamous yellow shirt, if you can even call it that. That stretch of fabric she loves to wear out “battling” on the dance floor can now be yours for the unreasonable price of $39.99. Designed in six different colors, the party top is said to be custom made to your body type, because, “You don’t want to be that person at the club that see’s [sic] someone else wearing the same thing.” How long until the entire Jersey Shore is inundated with JWoww style copycats?
