Evening Quickies: “Bridge & Tunnel” Was MTV’s “Jersey Shore” That Never Happened

 

  • Back in 2009, MTV filmed, but never aired, 12 episodes of a reality show called “Bridge & Tunnel” about Brianna and Gabriella DeBartoli, two party girls from Staten Island. I’m sorry, it’s not Staten Island — it’s DRAMA ISLAND! MTV aired “Jersey Shore” instead, which, let’s be honest, was the better $$$ decision. But still, MTV, how could you keep these baby mob wives from us?! All “Jersey Shore” fans absolutely must watch the “Bridge & Tunnel” trailer post-haste. [Village Voice, Gawker]
  • Kat Von D walked out of a “Good Day LA” interview after they asked a question about her breakup with Jesse James. Honey, you are not Paris Hilton, and storming off-set wasn’t even classy when Paris Hilton did it. [The Superficial]
  • James Franco wanted a part in “Twilight: Breaking Dawn,” but director Bill Condon said no because that would have been weird. [MTV News]

The “Jersey Shore” Season 4 Trailer Is Disgustingly Delicious

You guys, the “Jersey Shore” season four trailer is so gross. Does this mean I’m not going to watch it? No. In fact, I’m already planning a “Jersey Shore” season premiere viewing party with soppressata and limoncello shots. You’re only allowed to come if you’ve got a fake tan and something with an Ed Hardy label. But leave your ‘roid rage at the door, please!

After the jump, the five grossest things about the season four “Jersey Shore” season four trailer: Keep reading »

Miraculously, “Jersey Shore” Isn’t Hurting New Jersey’s Image

Relax, New Jersey-ites. Though they’ve tried their damnedest, the cast of “Jersey Shore” has not succeeded in making the Garden State look bad. When it comes to their opinions of NJ, a Fairleigh Dickinson University Public Mind poll of 711 adults released today could not find a statistical difference between people who watch “Jersey Shore” and people who don’t: 43 percent who’ve seen the show think NJ is great, while 41 who haven’t seen the show are also fans. See, the American public is not stupid. They know there is more to NJ than just Snooki and The Situation — like Princeton University, Bruce Springsteen, and, um, “The Sopranos.”

Last week I made a joke in the comments section on the post “22 Things We Never Thought We’d Do For A Man, Until We Did” and said I moved to NJ for a dude. That seems to have ruffled some Jersey feathers. I was just kidding. Even though I eventually moved, I am still a big Jersey fan. After the jump, five nice things I have to say about the state of New Jersey: Keep reading »

The Dumbest Things We’ve Done While Drunk

Earlier this week, Vinny was seen loading his bags into a car outside “Jersey Shore”‘s Seaside Heights house as he allegedly quit the show. Days later, The Situation stormed off, too, huffing and puffing to the paparazzi that he, “the bad guy,” was quitting, too. Drama, drama, drama.

So, how did a sensitive soul like Snooki cope with the breakup of her family unit? The only way Snooks knows how: she tied one on and danced with a potted plant. I am sure Louis Vuitton is thrilled about the product plug in the video footage of this special moment.

Aw, girl, we’ve all been there. In the spirit of summer weekends (!), I mixed myself a mojito and sauntered around the Frisky office, asking my colleagues: “What is the silliest thing you’ve done while drunk?” I already knew Amelia once fell into a lake (at a wedding). Oh, but it gets much, much, much funnier. Keep reading »

  • Oprah says she’ll move to South Africa and teach a class called It’s Life 101 at the girls’ school she founded for the fall semester about “how life really works.” OK, the first thing about how life really works is that you do not have access to Oprah unless your last name is “Hanks” or “Obama.” [Bossip]
  • Nicole Richie has joined Jessica Simpson and Elle Macpherson on NBC’s “Project Runway” knockoff show, “Fashion Star.” Sorry, but no one, I repeat, no one, can replace Tim Gunn. [Celebitchy]

Italy Is The Latest Country To Knock Off “Jersey Shore”

First there was “Jersey Shore,” then there was the UK’s “Geordie Shore” and now Italy is cashing in on its trashiest citizens. A new show called “Tamarreide” has been airing since mid-June, focusing on young “tamarri,” which translates to “sleazeballs.” Instead of a beach house on the boardwalk, the Italia Uno network put eight “tamarri” under the age of 24 in a tour bus outfitted with sleeper sections, a kitchen, and a “sex suite.” According to The Daily Beast, one cast member, Marika, is a 22-year-old pole dancer and another, Manuel, 25, is a male stripper. In each episode, they visit a different Italian city like Rome or Florence, stay in a luxury hotel, and act like, well, sleazeballs. Who knew spray-tans and hair gel would be popular worldwide?
