Jersey Shore

Well, Abercrombie & Fitch you can’t have it both ways! You’re either with The Situation or you’re against him!

A few months back Abercrombie & Fitch publicly offered the GTL-lovin’ Situation money to stop wearing their clothes; issuing a press release claiming his affiliation with the company was bad for business and could do “significant damage” to their brand after Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was photographed wearing it while filming Jersey Shore.

Then, the company followed up by creating t-shirts that clearly infringed on the skankerific star’s trademarks! Yes – Abercrombie & Fitch began selling shirts on their website emblazoned with “The Fitchuation” and GTL-You Know The Deal” Hmmm… that is oddly similar; shockingly so – I wonder where on earth they got the idea for “The Fitchuation”? Photos of the t-shirts in question are below. Now the shunned Situation is fighting back in court!

The Situation is asserting that despite Abercrombie advertising that he was offered a substantial amount dough if he gave up the brand, he was never actually offered that money at all and he is accusing the company of using him as a “marketing ploy” in the hopes to “draw attention to Abercrombie’s fashion line.”

And from now on, GTL officially stands for Gym, Tan, Lawsuit because The Situation is suing the company for violating his “trademarked slogans without permission,” claiming the t-shirts clearly infringe on his “trademarked Jersey Shore references.” Which, after all, is the nonsense that made him famous!

The lawsuit filed in Federal Court in Florida this Tuesday alleges Abercrombie “embarked on a worldwide advertising campaign using Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness to create brand awareness for its products by falsely claiming that [the company] had offered money to Sorrentino if he would stop wearing Defendant’s goods.”

Through his lawyers, The Situation contends that as a result of A&F’s “publicity campaign” they “profited off the use of a false affiliation with Sorrentino.” The suit also proclaims the retailer “wrongly used Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness for advertising purposes in violation of applicable law.” Oops — publicity stunt gone wrong A&F!

As a result of Abercrombie & Fitches’ blatant copying remarkably coincidental borrowing effort, The Situation is asking for a trial by jury, $1M in royalty payments and $3M in damages. Hey – according to Snooki he needs the money

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATIONS SITUATION? DOES HE HAVE A RIGHT TO SUE? CAN YOU BELIEVE ABERCROMBIE THOUGHT THEY WOULD GET AWAY WITH THIS?!


Jersey Shore’s pint-sized Guidette, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, sat down with GQ for what she called her “first interview ever” and talked the girl behind the poof, changing Jersey Shore and how she wishes MTV would portray the cast members as the “intelligent” people they really are.

Apparently, Ms. Snookers went to college! Oh and in case you’re wondering if the New York Times best selling author is a reader – she’s not. “I don’t read,” she said. “I just used the CliffsNotes, books were too long.”

Snooki is well aware of the public’s perception of her and the cast mates, explaining “they just think that we’re stupid, that we have no education, and all we do is drink, have sex.” But she wants everyone to know she’s actually very smart! “I went to college,” where she studied Veterinary Technology! Yes – Snooki can actually assist in operating on animals and, yes, she wore leopard print scrubs! In fact, she would love to return to school and get her Vet Tech license.

Snooki also revealed she is bothered by MTV’s portrayal of the cast of Jersey Shore and how it pretty much ruined her image by making her look trashy, trampy, and totally vapid and if she were in charge things would go very differently. “I wouldn’t show as much drinking and partying. I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time — which they don’t show,” she laments. “We don’t even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don’t show anything but us drinking and hooking up.”

As for what motivates MTV to only show the negative (re: trashy) behaviors of the cast, Snooki thinks it’s all about the Benjamins! “Maybe because of the success of the show, they think that if they don’t show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn’t stay successful,” she muses. “I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it’d even change people’s minds about us.”

Whatever the perception of the show, Snooki thinks it’s absurd when people get upset about the words “Guido” and “Guidette”. Asked about some people comparing the terms to the N-word, Snooki calls those claims “ridiculous” and explains that while the N-word is “seriously offensive”, Guido is not. “’Guido’ is used as a lifestyle — like being a prep, skater, gothic. We’re Guidos. Plus, I’m not even Italian!”

Snooki rebuffs accusations that Jersey Shore has given her city and state a bad reputation. “They need to get over it,” she snaps. “We’re not representing Jersey.” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie unfortunately disagrees and was so disappointed with Jersey Shore he denied MTV’s tax credit, which is doled out to encourage filming in the state. Mr. Christie sent a letter to the network stating he was “duty-bound to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a $420,000 bill for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

Making it clear that success – and the money that comes with it – hasn’t gone to her head, Snooki revealed that her outfit cost “like 50 bucks!” The reality star reportedly made $750,000 in the last year alone, but is very conservative with her money! “I save it,” she insists. “Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!” Yikes!

That’s impressive, because The Situation allegedly earned around 2.5 – 3M last year! He must belong to the Kate Gosselin school of saving!

As for what’s next for Snooki, the Donald Trump fan (who even said he would get her vote for the GOP presidential nod) is expanding her brand! “I’m actually trying to get a clothing line together. I have perfume and tanning lotion, eyelashes, nail polish…” She also has a new novel, Gorilla Nation, coming soon! Furthermore, Snooki is making a cameo in two movies and hopes to land a guest spot on The Office!

THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE IS INTELLIGENT AND MISREPRESENTED BY MTV? DO YOU THINK THEIR BEHAVIOR ADDS TO THAT MISCONCEPTION? ARE YOU SURPRISED SNOOKI IS GOOD WITH MONEY?

They’re back! Fresh off the cast’s European excursion to Florence, Italy — MTV has announced it will be kicking off the new year with an all new season of Jersey Shore!

Yes, America’s favorite drunken hotmesses housemates will return to Seaside Heights, NJ, when season five of the MTV hit series premieres on Thursday, January 5, 2012 (10/9c).

Back on their home turf and excited to be in their natural habitat, “the cast hits the ground running to get their “G.T.L” regimen back on schedule while also dealing with their evolving group dynamic amidst the tensions and hookup rumors left over from their time in Florence.”

To mark the special occasion, MTV also released a preview clip for the new season which features DJ Pauly D recovering from a tanning accident after burning his face when trying to get his skin tanned. He was trying to correct the paleness he suffered while in Italy. The rest of the cast is also shown as they prepare to hit their favorite club Karma.

As we reported, the cast began filming season 5 immediately following their return from filming season 4 in Italy. They did not get a break which in turn led to some more drama, such as Vinny Guadagnino quitting the show, only to return days later.

The preview clip is below!

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE NEW SEASON OR OVER THE SERIES? THOUGHTS ON THE PREVIEW?

Jersey Shore fans saw a drift this season between BFFs JWoww and Snooki, and according to a new report, the two are no longer on speaking terms.

The current issue of In Touch Weekly magazine is reporting that Jenni “JWoww” Farley, 25, is no longer talking to her former BFF Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 23. The reason? JWoww has had it with Snooki’s behavior — mostly her drunken antics.

The mag adds that JWoww has also felt cast aside by Snooki in recent months, since Snooki’s “controlling” boyfriend Jionni LaValle came into the picture. Snooki has reportedly become one of those needy girls that ditch their friends to be with their guy 24/7.

Making matters worse, JWoww’s boyfriend, Roger Williams, hates being around Snooki and Jionni. “Roger and Jionni have never hit it off — so the girls never double date,” explains a source.

Yet the biggest reason is that JWoww is simply fed up with Snooki. The antics she once loved now irritate her. “JWoww is so sick of Snooki’s drunken behavior. She has a quiet domestic life with Roger and doesn’t want the drama,” a source says.

Unfortunately for the two former BFFs, this poses a major problem for MTV. See, as we reported a while back, JWoww and Snooki have been given their own spin-off by MTV, which is supposed to feature them living in a house together… as BFFs. But now “producers are stumped about what to do, since the girls refuse to get a place together,” says a source. Ai ya ya.

The source adds that as long as Snooki’s beau Jionni remains in the picture, it’s highly unlikely JWoww will make up with the Snooks. “They’re practically strangers now,” the source says. You can read more about this in the latest issue of In Touch Weekly.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? SAD OR SURPRISED ABOUT THE DEMISE OF THIS FRIENDSHIP?

Jersey Shore fans were not shocked to hear that on-again off-again couple Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola broke up again recently, but they might however be surprised at the reason for the break up!

According to TheDirty.com, the same site that broke the recent Ashton Kutcher cheating scandal, Ronnie not only cheated on Sammi but he did it with another reality star!

The site is reporting that Ronnie hooked up with Bad Girls Club season 5 alum Morgan Brittany Osman! If you recall, Morgan made her mark on BGC by getting kicked off during the first episode of her season.

As for what happened between Ronnie and Morgan, “model” Arian Marie, a friend of Morgan’s, tells TheDirty site that Ronnie and Morgan first had sex in Florida in mid September. The two then met up again a week later at a club in Las Vegas. Arian says Ronnie disrespected her by not letting her sit at his table with him and Morgan so she decided to put him on blast on twitter.

Arian tweeted to Sammi on September 25: “So @MTVsammi I thought u should kno that @mtvronnie was f***ing my girl @Morganbritt724 last weekend n now they r at wet. Sorry.”

Ronnie then blew his fuse, like any normal guy would after just being outed to his girlfriend as a scumbag cheater, by making a series of nasty tweets about Arian, all of which he later deleted.

Next thing we know, Sammi stopped following Ronnie on twitter and Ronnie was announcing the two had broken up last week. Here’s to hoping it’s for good this time!

While Sammi has yet to officially comment on the break up, she did tweet – “Thank u to all my fans and supporters :) u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo”

As for Morgan, she is keeping mum on the issue though theDirty sites states she “is not proud of her actions.” More photos of Morgan below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? SURPRISED RONNIE CHEATED? DO YOU THINK THEY’RE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?

Could it be? Has it been an entire season of Jersey Shore? Are we really saying arrivederci to Florence with our favorite gorilla juiceheads and guidettes? It seems like only yesterday the meatballs were hooking up with one another and Mike was bashing his head into a wall. Ahh, memories. I mean, this was the season that had a bearable, dare I say likeable, Rawn and Sam! That, in itself, is mind boggling.

We rejoin the group at the tail end of their clubbing. At home, Mike continues to talk to himself and practice karate on the walls. Snooki wakes up and proceeds to ignore Mike as he wanders aimlessly around the house having a solo conversation. The rest of the roommates return home from the clerb, with Sam begging Rawn to talk some sense into Mike after his antics earlier in the evening.

The Situation confides in Ronnie that he feels like the villain. Ronnie knows that Mike has been depressed and he wants him to try to mend fences with the housemates. A slightly defensive Mike says he doesn’t care if his roommates don’t like him. He has gotten used to be alone. Sammi commends Rawn for at least trying to talk to Mike.

Oh no! It’s the news no one ever saw coming! Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro have broken up yet again.

Ronnie broke the news that the Jersey Shore couple decided to go separate ways at a Paranormal Activity 3 screening, saying: “We are not together.”

Despite the good times the couple seemed to be experiencing in Italy, things just didn’t work out. “Being in Italy, in such a romantic atmosphere, brought us together,” Ronnie explained to US Weekly. “The first week was rough — everyone was like ‘Oh, my God.’ But [Sammi and I] didn’t fight at all in Italy. [It was] probably the highest point in our relationship.”

I’m pretty sure that any regular viewers of the show expected the couple may not make it for the long haul, especially considering their constant fighting and the allegations of cheating that has plagued the couple.

Ronnie’s co-star Pualy D is however glad the couple has gone their separate ways! “I love single Ronnie!” he enthuses. “When he’s doing the relationship thing, I let him do his thing, I don’t get involved. When he’s with Sammi he’s a different person. She’s a difficult woman!” Nice, Pauly.

So far Sammi hasn’t officially confirmed or denied the break up – or trashed Ronnie publicly in any way. Darn! But she did Tweet: “Thank u to all my fans and supporters :) u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo” Ronnie on the otha hand posted a Tweet asking fans for their best breakup line. Oh, dear…

Meanwhile, the 4th season of the Jersey Shore quietly ends tonight on MTV! On tonight’s finale and 12th episode of the season, the gang gets ready to say good-bye to Italy and head back to Seaside Heights but tensions between Mike and the rest of the roommates leave him doubtful that he’ll be joining them back at the Jersey Shore.

The episode airs at 10/9c and will be immediately followed by the season 4 reunion!

THOUGHTS ON THE BREAK UP? HOW LONG DO YOU THINK UNTIL THEY GET BACK TOGETHER? THOUGHTS ON THE FINALE & REUNION?

Last night’s episode of Jersey Shore was a hot mess of Mike hate and meatball madness. Pauly D manages to avoid Deena’s advances for “the sex,” while JWoww and Sam relish in their new found (and slightly surprising, given past seasons) friendship.

We rejoin the group with Snooki on the phone with Jionni discussing her smush session with Vinny. Jionni is pissed and Snooki is fanning her face to dry up her tears and while cocking her pink sequined ball cap to the side like a rapper. Jionni can’t handle her news, but he’s willing to continue talking to her. After they hang up, Vinny asks if Snooks wants to cuddle with him to make her feel better. He’s too funny.
