“I hardly drink now. I used to drink every single day. I’m more into getting fit, going to the gym, eating healthy because then you feel better about yourself … If I was stretched out, I would look like a supermodel. But I’m like compact, so I look like 160 pounds.”
—Snooki, always the modest one, talks to Star Magazine about her recent weight loss and general push to eat better and exercise more. But we’re not as interested in that part of things. Um, did we hear that right? Snooki is hardly drinking? This turn of events will probably make “Jersey Shore” far less entertaining, but after her getting arrested on the boardwalk in broad daylight for public intoxication last season, I have to say it sounds like a good thing.

Apparently this is what happens if you are Snooki and you crash your Fiat while in Florence. Oh, and you also get your license revoked and face criminal charges. At least she has found an interesting way to make her neck brace work with her wardrobe.[Us Weekly] Keep reading »
Snooki rear-ended a cop car in Florence, Italy, this weekend, sending two police officers to the hospital with whiplash. Snooki, her pal Deena, and a “Jersey Shore” film crew member were being escorted by the cop car, which pinned Snooki’s car against a highway wall after the crash. This surely won’t do any good to improve Jersey-Italy relations, which have been wilting like a bouffant with too much hair gel ever since the “Jersey Shore” cast announced they’d be filming a season in their homeland. Miraculously, though, no limoncello shots (or any other alcohol) were involved in this fender bender! Despite all those trips up and down the NJ Turnpike, Snooki’s just a plain ol’ bad driver.

Look at that. We have another celebrity parent tell-all in the works. Frank Sorrentino—pops to Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino of “Jersey Shore” fame—said that he is in the process of selling a book about his son. And it’s not going to be a nice one. “I’m calling Mike on his s***,” Frank wrote in a blog post. “I covered for Mike his entire life and when I needed his help he left me hanging.”
Here’s the thing: The Situation is kind of an open book. I mean, we already know that he will screw anything with a pulse if he has a drink in his hand. But Frank says there is much more dirt. For example… Keep reading »
Pauly D and The Situation arrived at the airport last week with their bags packed, ready to head to Florence, Italy, to film season four of “Jersey Shore.” But they were told to hang tight as production has been postponed for a second time. (It was postponed the first time around as the cast held out for more lucrative contracts.) Apparently, Italians aren’t too hyped about hosting our favorite fist-pumpers. First, the mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, drew up a list of rules for the cast: they cannot be filmed in bars. They cannot drink in public. They cannot portray Florence as a drinking town. And they can only positively feature Italian culture.
But now he’s getting more antagonistic. Keep reading »
Last night on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon,” Tina Fey and Amy Poehler joined Jimmy in a “Jersey Shore” spoof. Both of the ladies looked pretty hot with their mega-extensions and bustiers as they rolled into a club and started dancing with the guys. Tina’s opening line? “I wanna make babies wit’ you.” But the best was when Rachel Dratch, aka “Drootchie,” appeared and they had a threeway girlfight. Sure, maybe the spoof is a little late to the party, but I still loved it. [PopEater] Keep reading »
Lord, what have we done? Am I not tithing enough? Am I too mean to my mother? Is this because I kicked my parents’ dog when he was begging under the table during Easter dinner? Why, oh why, has The Situation been given his own TV show? Mike Sorrentino has signed a series development deal with MTV and will start filming later this year. Although no plans are specific yet, no good can come of this. Imagine all that booze-infused date rape-y douchiness distilled into one show.

American culture is spreading throughout the world … spreading like herpes. Behold, a British version of “Jersey Shore” on MTV UK: “Geordie Shore” stars thickly accented lads and lasses Jay, Vicky, Gary, Charlotte-Letitia, James, Sophie, Greg and Holly — who says she is “fierce, flirty and I’ve got double Fs!” — in the northeastern city of Newcastle. It’ll air Tuesday, May 24 at 10 p.m. in the UK. British “Jersey Shore” proves the allure of fake tans, tube tops, and puking your guts out is indeed universal. But — serious question — do they fist pump?

How do you say “UGH!” in Italian? Because that’s what the entire country of Italy said when they learned MTV’s “Jersey Shore” would be filming its fourth season in the beautiful and historic city of Florence. The mayor of Florence, Matteo Renzi, has drawn up a list of rules that Ronnie, Snooki, and pals must obey when they begin filming there next month. Because we know that will keep them in line.
