MTV’s “Jersey Shore” Reality Show: Unbelievably. Heinous. (Can’t Miss) Television.


Lordy, Lordy, hasn’t New Jersey suffered enough on television lately? First, “Real Housewives of New Jersey,” and then MTV’s “True Life: I’m A Jersey Shore Girl.” Is a new MTV reality show called “Jersey Shore” about a bunch of trashy kids who live in a shore house really necessary? I’m totally OD-ing on fake-baking, French manicures and hair gel and it almost makes me miss “The Hills” kids. Almost. Keep reading »

5 Celebrities Who’ve Got State Hate!

Danielle Staub of “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” has some serious beef with Jennifer Aniston. Aniston was recently a guest on “Chelsea Lately” to talk about her flick “The Bounty,” which was filmed in Atlantic City, New Jersey. At one point during the show, Aniston quipped simply, “What is with that smell?” This got Staub very riled up. She ranted to Us Weekly, “Why don’t you see more of New Jersey before you say it smells? If it were so bad, I wouldn’t be living here for 22 years. I will personalize a tour and take her to a fabulous lunch on me afterwards, all homemade Italian food, and a tour of all the wonderfully smelling places in New Jersey.” [NY Daily News]

I get the state pride, but who cares if someone thinks your state smells? Real Housewives, that’s who. But Aniston isn’t the only celeb to speak ill of a state or city. Here are a few other celebs who totally hate America, kinda! Keep reading »

New Jersey Might Outlaw Brazilians

If you live in Jersey and want to get a Brazilian wax in preparation for bikini weather (or a big date), you might soon have to travel to another state to get your hair down there removed. If a proposal is passed by the New Jersey Board of Cosmetology and Hairstyling, genital waxing would become explicitly illegal there. Currently, statutes allow for waxing of the face, neck, arms, legs, and abdomen, and officials say that genital waxing has therefore always been illegal but wasn’t spelled out. If full bikini waxes get banned, we suspect the mob will set up a black market for women who insist on going bare. Too bad Tony Soprano isn’t around anymore, because he would take care of the situation — we can’t imagine him standing for Carmela or Gloria going around ungroomed. [Philly.com] Keep reading »

Juno Lied: Pregnancy Tests Aren’t Plan B, People

Storytime! Over at Feministing’s newly relaunched site, a teenage user on their new community board recounts a story of trying to buy a pregnancy test with her best friend at a drug store and being refused because of her age. When the teen presents the fact that she legally has the right to buy a pregnancy test despite being “underage”, the drugstore teller tells her she shouldn’t be having sex in the first place. After much back and forth the teens were finally able to procure the test, but only after a teller in his late-teens allowed them. This is why a person’s personal beliefs on sexual activity shouldn’t be a factor when they’re on the job. Oh and the teen wasn’t pregnant in the end, thank goodness. [Feministing] Keep reading »

The McGreevey’s Divorce Should Be Made Into A Movie

Former New Jersey governor Jim McGreevey and his wife, Dina Matos McGreevey, are going through a messy divorce right now. If you’ve forgotten, Jim resigned after admitting he’d had a gay affair. Now, Dina wants him to pay alimony, but he’s trying to paint the picture that the only reason they lived in luxury was because taxpayers took care of everything — the helicopters, the mansion, the use of beach homes, and the household servants — and they otherwise wouldn’t have had any of it. She says she missed out on at least 13 months of gubernatorial perks since he resigned, and she wants to be compensated for the loss. Keep reading »
