Last night’s time with the gang from Jersey Shore was just how I like it: Light-hearted, drunken tomfoolery without excessive urine, blurring of Britneys, or vomit, and a stage-five clinger thrown in for good measure. Speaking of measurement, Mike logged in some quality phone time with the Unit.
Mike is disappointed when he calls the Decibel and finds out he’s in Miami. This means he’s not able to come to the Shore to tell Jionni about Snooki’s situation with the Situation. Mike is thrilled to learn, however, that his brother is hooking up with Deena’s sister. There were so many bleeps in that portion of the conversation I felt like Mike was a smoke detector. Mike is being an evil genius right now… minus the genius part.

Get ready for more T-shirt time, as MTV is confirming DJ Pauly D‘s spin off, The Pauly D Project, is about to come to a TV near you!
Not surprisingly, the show will have nothing to do with his Jersey-ness and everything to do with his music career. According to Zap2it, viewers will watch Pauly as he attempts to make it as a DJ, cutting a single with 50 Cent and touring as one of Britney Spears‘ opening acts! Say what?!
The show will also introduce us to Pauly’s longtime friends, from before the days of the Seaside Heights crew! Don’t worry – they still don’t have normal names, they respectively go by “Biggie” and “Big Jerry”!
The Pauly D Project premieres on MTV, March 29th.
Moving on to Snooki! Has the Guidette left her Jersey roots behind her for the big, bad city? Apparently so! The Jersey Shore‘s longtime nemesis New Jersey Governor Chris Christie continues to wage war against the be-drunken Shore rats, and this time he is claiming Snooki has jumped state!
Last week, Snooki innocently tweeted, “I will not be voting for Chris Christie. Love always, the “buffoons” from that degrading Jersey Shore show.” Snooki went on to call the Governor, “judgmental,” saying he had never even met her in person! Them’s was fightin’ words! Chris Christie has been combating the negative Jersey images taking over reality TV for the last few years, and Snooki’s tweet was in response to the Governor denying MTV a film tax credit because of the negative portrayals the show perpetuates.
And after Snooki’s little comment, the Gov. fired back, claiming she doesn’t even live in Jersey, so she that’s why she won’t be voting for him. Buuuurn! At the BioNJ dinner last Thursday, the Governor was asked about Snooki’s threat to give her vote to someone else, and Mr. Christie replied, “She lives in New York. She can’t vote for me.”
And he’s right, because Snooki actually resides in… wait for it… Poughkeepsie, New York! JWoww, seconded that she also wouldn’t vote for the Governor, who claims he is trying to clean up Jersey’s image by eradicating all the negative TV shows. “Me either! I will choose someone who appreciates what we did for jersey! Urs truly the degenerate,” JWoww Tweeted!
Mr. Christie apologized if he hurt the Snook’ s feelings by outing her lil’ secret place of residence, but is moving forward with what he calls a culture war against the state of NJ! Luckily, he’s not up for re-election until next year, so Snooki has a whole year to return to her home state!
“I tell (N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo) all the time you can have them back,” Christie said, according to the NJBiz. “You will not be shocked to know that he has not sent a car yet, for Snooki, or JWoww or The Situation.” Well, I can’t wait to see what happens in the war of Jersey Shore vs. The State of New Jersey!
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US – TEAM CHRISTIE OR TEAM SNOOKI? WILL BE YOU TUNING IN FOR PAULY D’S SPINOFF?
If one could pinpoint the appeal of Jersey Shore–besides the public’s limitless thirst for footage of drunk folks–it may be the unabashed, unashamed way that its cast members live their lives. Nowhere does this become more apparent than in this fantastic interview of Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and Jennifer ‘Jwoww’ Farley. While most reality stars take us through a tame, sanitized, media-trained version of events, these two hold nothing back.
At one point, Snooki admits to being bisexual, which is not a huge surprise considering she got very close to roommate Deena in the last season of the show. But rather than be coy, Snooki is out and proud: “I would consider myself bi. I’ve done stuff with girls before. But I would never be with a girl because I like… penis. But I’ve experimented,” says Snooki to the Huffington Post.
What’s a bit more surprising is that both girls suspect that their roommate Mike ‘The Situation’ may be gay. JWoww says, “I can’t confirm or deny with Mike, but if he was, it would all make sense.”
The rest of the interview is a serious delight. Both women admit to having Google Alerts set on their names and enjoy their constant press attention, even if much of it is false and/or negative. Snooki says, “I like it when my name is in the news,” and both admit to having a “thick skin.” Jwoww attributes this to the very harsh reaction they received when the show first aired, stating “..when the show first came out [the press] was so negative. So we had to learn how to deal with it right from the jump. People love to hate us.”
It sounds like the tough women of Jersey Shore could give some overly sensitive housewives a few lessons in how to deal with being in the spotlight. However, they do claim they are victims of bullying (whether or not it systematic, is anyone’s guess). Snooki calls herself “[probably] the top celebrity that is bullied today.” She goes on, “I’m just different and everyone hates me for it.” JWoww even claims that they’ve impacted government policy: “What we do on the show — people say we’re alcoholics. We get discriminated against for drinking. And we’re tan so now we’ve caused these tanning taxes and we’re getting a bad rap for tanning.”
Like the recent interview with roommate Sammi Sweetheart, Snooki and JWoww also believe that the cast’s intelligence is underestimated due to their antics and wardrobe choices. JWoww says: “It’s like you don’t know me to judge me. We’re sorry we’re not walking on the shore with three-piece business suits or evening gowns.” I suppose all those clips of the cast discussing economic policy and the upcoming 2012 presidential election are being left on the cutting room floor!
As for the ladies’ future career aspirations, they have both set the bar pretty high. JWoww wants to be like Angelina Jolie and travel the world, while Snooki wants to follow in the steps of Jessica Simpson and her business success:
JWoww: Angelina Jolie. Not the acting — but I’m obsessed with her. I know that she gives half her paycheck to charities but she’s also knee-deep into it. She wants to make a difference. And I think that’s what separates her from a lot of celebrities who just do it all for a write off. She’s just so passionate about it. And I want to be passionate like that when it comes to animals and children. I’ve never experienced what she’s experienced and I keep hearing that if you go to a third world country it’ll change your life. And that’s what I want.
Snooki: I would say Jessica Simpson in terms of her business and her brand. She’s a genius and she’s a business woman and that’s what I want to be. I admire her a lot.
As for the next ten years, they have pretty traditional goals and want a husband and children. But, both would appear to still want to be on our televisions. JWoww is cautious, saying “I hope reality TV is still around in 10 years,” while Snooki is far more confident in her belief that we are stuck with her forever: “It will be. And if it’s not, I’ll just tape myself and put myself on YouTube.”

TELL US: ARE YOU SHOCKED THAT SNOOKI ADMITS TO BEING BISEXUAL? DO YOU THINK THE SITUATION IS GAY? ARE YOU EXCITED FOR SNOOKI’S YOUTUBE SHOW IN 2020?
It’s back to the beach with the peeps of Jersey Shore. Last night, Vinny settles back into shore life, Snooki loses bladder control, and Mike is eerily nice.
Vinny has come back to the Mothership, which is awesome because it means no new roommates for the gang. Everyone heads out, but Rawn for one is leery that Mike is being nice. Like really nice. Scary nice. It is very strange. JWoww is upset that Roger has been MIA, while the Situation reveals that he wants to get a tattoo that says “Loyalty and Betrayal” since he knows so much about those two things. Ronnie thinks “Betrayal and Betrayal” would be more appropriate given Mike’s pension for stirring up dramz among the roommates while being anything but “loyal.”
No matter, let’s just go to Karma! Pauly D is thrilled to have his wing man Vinny back at the Shore. Snooki is thrilled to have all of her guido family back together. So thrilled, in fact, that she totally soils herself on the dance floor. I know when I have to pee…do you, dear readers? Luckily Snooki takes a Shore shower, which means she maybe washed her hands when she went to the bathroom. Who are these people?

While Seaside Heights, New Jersey has allowed the cast of Jersey Shore to film, “work,” and get wasted night after night in multiple seasons of the infamous reality show, their fellow Jersey residents in Hoboken will be having none of the macaroni rascal treatment.
In a letter posted to the City of Hoboken’s official website, Mayor Dawn Zimmer announced the Hoboken Film Commission denied MTV’s request for a permit to film Snookiand Jwoww‘s upcoming spin-off, citing “public safety and quality of life concerns.”
The letter contains a detailed explanation of the request, which stated it would take 700 hours of filming to produce one hour of programming! One of the reasons the permit was denied was the request was made for a 24 hour permit, and Hoboken already has a law in place which prohibits filming after 11 p.m.
Given that the Jersey Shore kids love to party and Hoboken has a thriving club scene, this also presented a major issue. The report goes on to say: “The constant presence of such a production would be an attractive nuisance causing crowds to assemble at every hour of the day and night…unacceptable lessening of the quality of life for the local residents and businesses.”
The letter also indicates that 495 Productions, the team behind Jersey Shore, had filmed in Hoboken previously without a permit, using “informal verbal agreements …involving payments to individuals.” The mayor was not pleased and issued the following warning in her letter:
“As the mayor of a community that has experienced significant corruption in the recent past, I write to put you, 495 Productions, MTV, and Viacom on formal notice that there will be zero tolerance for this kind of approach in the City of Hoboken. Any attempts to film in a manner that is not permitted without a permit will be dealt with immediately and aggressively by the City of Hoboken.”
Yikes, Mayor Zimmer is serious! In response, Snooki sent out the following message to New Jersey Governer Chris Christie on her Twitter: “I will not be voting for Chris Christie. Love always, the “buffoons” from that degrading Jersey Shore show.”
Since Snooki is from New York, and does not legally reside in Jersey, we don’t think Gov. Christie has much to worry about.
Even after the disastrous Italy season, Jersey Shore is still looking for other places where the gang can rest their booze-soaked, tan heads for upcoming seasons! In a recent interview, Ronnie says, “I believe that they were looking at Vegas and Australia, two places I would love to go. I don’t know if we would make it back from Vegas, but I’m pretty sure we would love to go to Vegas.”
Surprising no one, Ronnie says he will go just about anywhere with the show: “I want to do this as long as the fans keep watching.I will do it in Depends and a walker.”
And if you show up to the club in your walker, we might just keep watching. Finally, Snooki tweeted a photo yesterday of herself with JWoww and Mob Wives stars Drita and Carla during a radio interview! That pic is below.

Ready or not, there is a mini guido/guidette brewing in the bun for Snookiaccording to a new report!
The latest issue of Star Magazine is reporting today that theJersey Shorestar is pregnant! With child and not vodka, just in case you were wondering! An insider reveals to the mag that Snooki aka Nicole Polizzi, 24, and her boyfriend, Jionni LaValle, are expecting their first child together.
“She is pregnant and has only told her closest friends and some family,” the insider said. “She’s been telling people that she has a big announcement coming.”
The mag also reports that Snooki’s baby news is now affecting the direction of her upcoming spinoff show with costar Jenni “J-Woww” Farley. “They are having to redo the creative direction of her spin-off because of her pregnancy.”
Snooki has reportedly been dropping hints about her pregnancy on her social media pages. “I feel sick,” she wrote in a January 25 post on her Facebook page, later tweeting: “Late night craving…yogurt hits the fricken spot!”
And just last August, Snooki revealed she couldn’t wait to make “guido babies” with beau Jionni! How romantical. No word yet on when the Snooks plans to announce her big news.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI REPORTEDLY BEING PREGNANT? CAN SHE STOP DRINKING FOR 9 MONTHS? IS THE WORLD READY FOR A MINI SNOOKI?
UPDATE: Snooki is denying she is preggos! According to TMZ, Snooki went on the Opie & Anthony radio show this morning and not only denied the pregnancy report but also stated she is insulted by the insinuation that she is fat. So there you have it folks. The world can collectively breathe a sigh of relief!
Last night’s Jersey Shore episode was aptly titled by the network “Free Vinny.” Not even 30 seconds into the episode and I can’t get Micheal Jackson’s “Free Willy” soundtrack song out of my head, only my mind is singing, “Hold me, like the roommate Vinny, and I will say to thee, you are my friend.” Pathetic, right? Right. I hope it sticks with you as it has with me. 🙂
So right off the bat, we all know it’s NEVER a good sign if the Shore Store boss shows up at the house. He knows his hair blends in all too well with the house’s “quaint” wood paneling, so usually he tries to stay as far away as possible from that set. It must be dire. It is… with Vinny at home and Mike MIA, there are shifts that need to be covered. Crude words aren’t ironed on to scanty boy shorts all by themselves, dear readers! Boss man Danny is not happy with their work ethic and he threatens to increase his employee base. That means potential new roommates for the gang. Because this show has all of a sudden turned into the Real World.

Best known for her on-again, off-again relationship with co-star Ronnie, Jersey Shore‘s Sammi Sweetheart also wants the world to know she’s just a regular gal. With a lot of money from a reality show. And a perfume. You know, like us normal girls.
In an interview with Naughty But Nice Rob, Sammi says that despite the show’s massive success she is still the same, proclaiming “I am just myself and I like being me. I am still doing the same things that I was doing prior to the show. I am just me.”
When asked about how her more famous co-stars were doing, she kept it nice: “I don’t know if the show changed them. I think they look fabulous and they are doing great.”
Of her post-show plans, Sammi said she wanted most to return to school and finish her degree, telling Rob she has “one semester left.” She is quick to point out that despite their on-screen antics, there are brains amongst the crew: “What’s cool is Vinnyhas his degree, but most of us went to college, even though no one knows that. We all are very smart in our own way.”
While I don’t think we’ll be seeing any of the Jersey Shore discussing economic policy over shots any time soon, there is something to Sammi’s statement that the gang certainly has smarts, especially when it comes to self-promotion. Sammi also revealed that Snooki went to college though it’s safe to assume she didn’t quite finish.
For example, the female cast members have all started to post no-makeup photos following the success of Sammi’s “makeunder” from xoJane.com. Snooki followed with her own no-makeup pics and now Deena Cortese has joined in, posting the following au naturel photos to her Twitter account this week. Those photos are below!
Snooki on the other hand is back to her usual and posted a few new bikini photos, hinting these might go on the cover of her new book. (Yes, Snooki is releasing another literary tome for the masses!) Those pics are also below!
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV (10/9c).
