Justin Rego And Angelina Pivarnick Are A Couple

It’s a couple made in reality TV show villain heaven. Rumor has it that Justin Rego of “The Bachelorette” is dating Angelina Pivarnick of “Jersey Shore.” Justin failed to impress us when he courted Ali, walking miles in a cast to see her, only for her to discover soon after that he had a girlfriend back home. And Angelina failed to impress us by being whiny and picking fights with her roommates in Miami. Wait, now that I think about it, these two have a lot in common. Both of them made early exits from their respective shows after a big blow-out fight. Both of them like to juggle multiple love interests—Justin is rumored to have actually had two girlfriends while filming the “The Bachelorette” and Angelina famously got with Vinny while dating Jose. Not to mention that wrestler Justin totally looks like Angelina’s juicehead type. Maybe this will last? [People] Keep reading »

“Lake Shore” Is Canadian For “Jersey Shore”

“Lake Shore” is Canada’s answer to MTV’s “Jersey Shore.” It’s a new reality show that will follow “eight vibrant and volatile 20-somethings through the streets of Toronto.” But the Canucks upgraded the concept to make it more of a multi-cultural, pan-sexual, guido bonanza where STD testing is free for all. The cast includes Sibel the Turk, Joey the Italian, Anni Mei the Vietnamese, Tommy Hollywood the Czech, Robyn the Jew, Salem the Lebanese (and he’s gay!), Karolina the Pole, and Downtown D the Albanian. And they already hate each other before they’ve even moved in! Oh Canada, how can we ever thank you? [The Hairpin] Keep reading »

GLAAD Chides “Jersey Shore” For Using The Word “Tranny.” But What About “Glee”?

MTV’s “Jersey Shore” had a bit of a situation with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) for airing what they deemed to be “one of the most blatantly transphobic scenes aired anywhere on television in the last few years.” During this season of the show, The Situation was out at a club, chatting up a person he presumed to be a woman but turned out to be transgendered. Afterward, he and other members of the crew threw around the word “tranny.” Keep reading »

The Situation’s Brother Accused Of Punching A Woman

If Mike Sorrentino is “The Situation,” we think his brother Marc should start going by “The Predicament.” Because he’s gotten himself into a pretty serious one. The 31-year-old owner of Naughty Limited—which runs several online porn sites—met a woman he met over the weekend while out partying with his brother. The woman says that she left the club with Marc to head back to his place in New Jersey. Only the encounter turned sour, and Mark allegedly punched her in the stomach. She has filed a misdemeanor complaint against him, and will presumably be seeing him in court. Just another reason to steer way clear of any of the guys even tangentially related to “Jersey Shore.” [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

How Much Do The “Teen Moms” Make Compared To Other Reality TV Stars?

The internet is abuzz with some news about “Teen Moms” Maci Bookout, Farrah Abraham, Amber Portwood, and Catelynn Lowell. A figure has gotten out on how much MTV pays them for participating in the series. And considering that all of them struggle financially on the show—Farrah gets a job as a waitress, Maci worries about paying bills, and Catelynn is freaked about the price of community college—they actually make pretty good money, a reported $60K to $65K per season or about $5,000 per episode. [Huffington Post]

Now, that is a lot of money, especially considering that 75 percent of teen moms who aren’t on MTV end up on welfare within five years. It’s enough money that it should alter the making-ends-meet theme of the show, and it is more than many professionals make in a year. But instead of berating these teens, I’d like to put their paychecks in the context of what other reality TV stars make. And let’s just say that compared to the $1.25 million dollars Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt made in 2008 for their insane on-camera antics, this is pocket change. Keep reading »
