There’s gonna be a situation up in here. A cow situation.
OK, “Redneck Jersey Shore” is not really what the show will be called. But when the producer of “Jersey Shore” teams up with Comedy Central to film a reality TV show about a group of Southerners, what do y’all think is going to happen? Producer Sally Ann Salsano began casting her yokels months ago for a show tentatively titled “Party Down South,” and she must have found her trashy Southern belles and meth-addled good ol’ boys because the show has started filming. We’ll totally queue this up in the TiVo, along with “Persian Version,” the tentative title for the Iranian-American spin-off, and “Wicked Summer,” which’ll focus on “blue collar” folks in Boston. In the meantime, cue millions of Southerners irate about being depicted as hicks in five … four … three … [ABC News] Keep reading »
Snooki may have gotten punched in the face by a gym teacher from Queens, but being a D-list celebrity is not all rough on our girl. Apparently, she gets so many designer purses sent to her for free even Posh Spice is getting jealous. Style writer Simon Doonan warns us something nefarious is afoot, though. “Allegedly, the anxious folks at these various luxury houses are all aggressively gifting our gal Snookums with free bags. No surprise, right?” Doonan wrote. “But here’s the shocker: They are not sending her their own bags. They are sending her each other’s bags! Competitors’ bags! Call it what you will — ‘preemptive product placement’? ‘unbranding’? — either way, it’s brilliant, and it makes total sense.” I guess nothing warms a cold fashionista heart more than seeing a girl who just got arrested for public drunkenness during the daytime carry the competition’s wares on her arm as she trots out of the slammer. Still, that is so mean. [New York Observer] Keep reading »
Stop the presses! Sammi finally grew a teeny-tiny backbone this weekend and quit “Jersey Shore.” According to sources at OK! magazine, the Jersey Shore’s dimmest bulb didn’t realize the horrifying range of Ronnie‘s wandering penis until last week’s episode aired. On Friday night, she allegedly had “a monster fight” with her slimeball on-again-off-again ex, ripped off her microphone and quit the show. “The door was left open for Sammi to return whenever she wanted, but she said ‘No way, not happening’ and is home,” the source said. But hold your applause. This is Sammi we’re talking about, remember? Girlfriend came crawling back like she always does. “After negotiations with producers,” she’s back in the house filming, the source says. And probably still in love with Ronnie. Is this girl the most codependent person you’ve ever met or what? [OK!] Keep reading »
In a recent interview, the least popular resident of “Jersey Shore,” Angelina Pivarnick, called out Snooki‘s new man, Jeff Miranda, for being a fame whore. Angelina claims that Jeff is only interested in Snooki to get press. She says, “Jeff used to try and hook up with me all the time after we were done filming in Miami. He really wanted to be my boyfriend. He would come to clubs and follow us around wherever we went.” She says he also macked on the other “Jersey Shore” girls before settling on the Snookster.

“We hit it off really, really good. Nicole is actually really cute and seems like a cool ass person, even though she’s drunk most of the time. She’s a real sweet girl … It was almost like an instant connection … The way the show depicts her and makes her seem is totally not her. She honestly has one of the biggest hearts. She is really not how everybody thinks she is.”
—Snooki‘s new boyfriend, Jeff Miranda, talks about meeting the pint-sized “Jersey Shore” star at Karma last Friday. Wait, last Friday? That was four days ago. How are they BF/GF already? This smells fishy to me. [Us Weekly] Keep reading »
