“What’s Paris Hilton’s sister called? Isn’t it Nicky or something? Anyway, she apparently talked to someone about my first collection, and was like, ‘I don’t get it.’ I was like, Good! I’m glad she doesn’t get it. It’s not for her. If Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it. I think she’d look a lot better in them ... I have to admit, I do find that JWoww sexy in a really weird way. It’s like that sexy, dirty kind of girl—not dirty, but like a hot mess.”
– File this quote under surprising things we learned about actress/designer Chloe Sevigny. Who knew she’d be a “Jersey Shore” kind of girl? [Bullet]
It turns out that watching “Jersey Shore” is not the most brilliant way to waste one’s time — attending a conference on “Jersey Shore” Studies is. On Friday, UChicago hosted a conference on Jersey Shore Studies, where roughly 25 academics from the U.S. and Canada name-dropped Snooki and The Situation alongside Foucault and Marx. One paper examined the performance of being a “guido” or “guidette” as being similar to the performance of drag; another examined whether the show is an embarrassment to Italian-American culture. These crazy academics even coined a new term to explain all things DTL: “guidosexuality.” Way to take something fun and ruin it with overanalysis, smartypants! You don’t have to justify loving the trashiest show on television with “academic studies.” It’s OK to just, know you, enjoy sh**ty TV. [NY Times] Keep reading »
What the hell is going on here?! Regis Philbin is stripping for Snooki. And then he gives her a lapdance (although it’s not in the above clip).
Be warned, children, once you see it, it cannot be unseen.

Last night brought us the last show of the season for “Beavis and Butthead.” I mean, “Jersey Shore.” Eh, same thing. I am relieved we’re at the end of the season in Italy. It’s a good thing MTV decided season five will be the show’s last. Can I get a “Yeah, buddy!”?

“I was never best friends with Mike to begin with. I probably get along with him better now than I ever did. I just kind of handle him, but at the same time he’s a dramatic person and I’m not into that. That’s why I steer clear of him. Off the show we never really talk; we never have. We see each other at events and stuff — there are no hard feelings or anything — but on the show what you’re seeing now is me just avoiding drama. I can’t deal with it. It’s stressful enough being away from home, so I don’t need any more stress. And he brings a lot.”
