The “Jersey Shore” knockoffs are here! “The Shahs Of Sunset,” a new reality show about Iranian-Americans in Los Angeles, will be developed by Bravo and Ryan Seacrest’s production company, they jointly announced Wednesday. L.A. has the largest Persian community outside of Iran and their per capita income is 50 percent higher than the national average, according to the blog ColorLines. “The Persian-American community in Los Angeles is a perfect fit for Bravo’s next great docu-series. The group of friends featured in our show are colorful, affluent, and fun,” Bravo’s Andy Cohen said in a statement. Keep reading »
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 »
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 »
Nothing is sacred to “Jersey Shore,” not even world-renowned priceless art. The season four promos, plugging the just-wrapped season the GTL gang filmed in Italy, depict juiced up and Snooki-fied works of art.

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 »
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?
