MTV's Jersey Shore Cast

MTV is once again stirring up controversy with the debut of their new show – Jersey Shore. The show, which follows a group of 20 something year old Italians as they live and work on the Garden State’s shoreline, has been criticized by some Italian American groups as being offensive and reinforcing stereotypes of Italian-Americans.

UNICO National — the “Largest Italian American Service Organization in the USA” — claims they “can’t keep up with the volume of calls ” from “outraged” Italian Americans. They added that it should be pulled from the air. The backlash doesn’t end there, as advertisers – Domino’s and American Family Insurance have requested that their ads be pulled from the show.

MTV however continues to stand by the show. “We understand that this show is not intended for every audience and depicts just one aspect of youth culture,” MTV’s spokesman told Fox News on Tuesday. “Our intention was never to stereotype, discriminate or offend.”

The cast of Jersey Shore can be seen continuously referring to themselves as “Guidos” and “Guidettes” on the show. Both terms have long been found to be offensive to Italians.

One of the cast members, Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, however defends the use of the term ‘Guido.’ “The older generation doesn’t understand. These days in New York and New Jersey a ‘guido’ is a good-looking Italian male that likes to have fun and a ‘guidette’ is a good-looking Italian girl,” Mike tells EW.com.

I actually saw the premier episode of this show and was a bit surprised to see the term “Guido,” be used so frequently by the cast. Always assumed the term was offensive. Other than that, the show pretty much fell in line with all the other MTV reality shows, such as the Real World. It was pretty much the same formula – follow a group of 20 something year olds as they get drunk, and make complete asses of themselves on national television. It’s likely the show is here to stay as it premiered to rather good ratings, the premier episode was seem by a total of 1.4 million viewers.

TELL US – HAVE YOU SEEN THIS SHOW? DID YOU FIND IT TO BE OFFENSIVE?

Kate Gosselin

Kate Gosselin has remained silent since her hit TLC show – Jon & Kate Plus 8 ended it’s 2 year run weeks ago. The mother of eight is now breaking her silence in a new interview with Barbara Waters.

According to Kate, the kids aren’t doing so well without the cameras around. “They cried in the van on the way home from school the other day. I finally admitted to them, they kept asking, ‘Where’s the camera crew? Where’s the camera crew? We miss them.’ And I said, ‘Our show is over.’ …Eight sobbing kids driving home from school,” Kate, 34, says on Barbara Walters’ The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2009, scheduled to air Wednesday on ABC.

TLC had planned to continue filming the show without Kate’s estranged husband, Jon Gosselin, back in September. A day after TLC made their announcement, Jon coincidentally revealed he had an “epiphany” and claimed the show was exploiting his children. He refused to allow TLC to continue filming them.

Kate however strongly disagrees with Jon, and tells Barbara that Jon ended the show “because he could.” “Unless you live in my house and, and see how everything that we have done with the show has been such a great experience, you can’t speak,” says Kate.

Kate also reveals she will be back on TV, as she is slated to do a new talk show next spring.

The new season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians is set to premier this Sunday on the E! network, and if the video preview below is any indication of what is to come, we can be assured it will be a drama filled season!

In the sneak peek of the fourth season premiere of the hit show, we can see Khloe Kardashian angrily confronting Scott Disick, the boyfriend and father of Kourtney Kardashian’s baby (due this month).

The argument begins when Khloe accuses Scott of purposely getting her sister pregnant so she wouldn’t leave him. Kourtney and Scott reportedly broke up in January after she accused him of cheating but got back together after she learned she was expecting.

“You thought she was going to leave you, so that’s why you knocked her up,” Khloe screams at Scott. “You wanted to just keep her for 18 years and not let anyone else have her,” continues Khloe. To which Scott shoots back, “18 years? I want her for eternity.” Khloe then slaps Scott across the face.

All interesting, wonder how Khloe would feel if Kourtney ever decided to slap her husband, Lamar Odom, across his face. The new season will focus on the changes in the lives of the sisters. Khloe’s new marriage, Kourntey’s pregnancy, and Kim dealing with her break up from NFL player, Reggie Bush. The two reportedly got back together back in September.

The fourth season will premier Sunday, Dec. 13 at 10/9c, on E! The video sneak peak is below -

According to a source, Audrina will be “getting six figures per episode. It is an incredibly lucrative deal.”

tiger-woods-mistresses

Just when you think the Tiger Woods cheating scandal could not get any worse, it continues to. As of today, the tally is now nine for the number of women claiming to have bedded the sports star. Even more shocking is now news that Tiger did not wear condoms with at least two of his mistresses.

Reality skank star, Jaimee Grubbs, continues to speak out about her sordid affair with Tiger. The latest revelation now being that Tiger refused to use condoms during their 20 sexual encounters over the last 3 years. “He didn’t use a condom,” says Jaimee, who adds that Tiger also didn’t ask if she was on birth control, either. “It wasn’t even discussed. He just never used one.”

Another mistress, 33-year-old restaurant manager Mindy Lawton (pictured on the far right above), apparently had unprotected sex with Tiger as well. According to Lawton’s sister, Lynn. “She said he never wore condoms,” Lynn told British tabloid, News of the World. “I was so worried she might catch a disease, especially as we suspected he was promiscuous.”

Experts reveal the obvious, that not only did Tiger risk his own life, but also the lives of his wife, model Elin Nordegren, and their two children, Sam, 2, and Charlie, 10 months. “It’s self-destructive behavior,” says psychotherapist Rhonda Findling, author of Don’t Call That Man! “Sometimes it’s just momentary stupidity, but this seems like sexual addiction.”

At least nine women are now claiming to have had romantic relationships with the embattled golfer, 33. On Sunday, New York’s Daily News reported that Cori Rist, a 31-year-old blonde had a six-month affair with Woods after meeting him at NYC hot spot Butter last year. A second Daily News article claims that Woods would fly Rist to tournaments and book her a hotel room adjacent to his.

Porn star Holly Sampson is also alleged to have been one of Tiger’s mistresses. A photo of Holly is below.

Elin needs to run for her life, as far as she can. It’s one thing to cheat on your wife, but to have unprotected sex with these women and risk her life is a completely different story. Tiger is truly proving himself to be a complete and total scumbag.

UPDATE – RadarOnline is now reporting that Tiger’s wife, Elin, has moved out of the couple’s Florida home.

TELL US – SHOULD ELIN TRY TO WORK THINGS OUT OR SHOULD SHE LEAVE?
