Jersey Shore

The Jersey Shore cast continues their attempt to destroy the world at world domination.

After MTV confirmed spin-off shows for Snooki, JWoww and DJ Pauly D last month, the next in line was of course The Snitchuation! TMZ is reporting Mike Sorrentino has signed a “series development deal” with MTV for an unnamed project aka a spin-off show!

“I’m excited to continue my relationship with MTV … Hopefully, there will be plenty more situations in the future,” said The Situation via a statement.

And ready or not Italy, here they come! The Jersey Shore gang posted their farewell messages on their twitter pages yesterday as they finally departed for Italy to begin filming their 4th season.

“nd im off..ciao twitterworld im going to miss you all! thanks for all ur love and support! keep posted for ne updates! Italia here i come!xo,” tweeted Sammi.

“Off to italy! Be back on twitter soon! Love u all n thank u for all the support xoxo,” tweeted JWoww.

“Keep The #DJPaulyDSwagg Movement Alive !!! I’m Out Ooooh Yeahhhhhh !!!!! Love You All !!!!! Ciao’ Tweeps !!!” tweeted DJPauly D.

A new TMZ report today reveals that filming is slated to begin on Monday, May 9. In fact, the cast will reportedly be residing in a building used for housing students at an Italian University.

TMZ adds that the Istituto Lorenzo de’ Medici fired off a letter to students advising them not to join forces with the Jersey Shore cast. “We advise you to NOT sign any paper, let anyone in, and keep us informed,” the letter stated. Perhaps not renting the student housing building to MTV might have been a better solution. Just saying.

According to the rumor mills, the 4th season of the Jersey Shore might begin airing in August.

Snooki Weight Loss

The weight loss of Snooki, star of the Jersey Shore, continues to make headlines. Last week, we reported on this and posted some after photos of the Snooks. Well, we now have some more photos for you below!

As we reported, Snooki, who is only 4’9″, lost her weight the old fashioned way via diet and exercise. “As everyone’s planning their night at the club, I’m wondering when Gold’s [Gym] closes,” she recently tweeted. And in an older interview with PEOPLE magazine, Snooki talked about her healthier lifestyle. “[I have] egg whites in the morning and chicken and salads,” she said. “And if you do drink, it’s gotta be clear liquors.”

No more throwing back Long Island Iced Teas or margaritas for Snooki as she reveals her new drink of choice is a lighter option: vodka with seltzer water.

With season 4 of Jersey Shore set to begin filming in Italy any day now, Snooki worries about falling of her diet and fitness wagon. “All we’re gonna eat is pasta,” she said. “I’m very, very scared – drinking wine and having spaghetti all day [would] throw me off course.”

Snooki also got herself some new leopard print hair extensions as she tweeted days ago, “My new hair! Leopard Print Extensions underneath ! #LOVE.” So yeah, a photo of Snooki’s leopard print extensions below as well more photos of her weight loss.

In other Shore news, Angelina Pivarnick is preggos!

Two months after getting engaged to beau Dave Kovacs, the former Jersey Shore troublemaker star confirmed her pregnancy to TMZ. And yes, the baby is courtesy of her fiance Dave. Hey, you never know these days.

The self-anointed Kim Kardashian of Staten Island wouldn’t confirm how far along she is but congrats to Angelina! A picture of Angelina and Dave below.

UPDATE – Snooki tweeted on May 27 that she helped slim down with the help of the Zantrex weight loss supplement. “I really do look good! #Sn00ki♥@Zantrex!” tweeted Snooki.

Snooki skinny

Holy moly! It seems Jersey Shore star Snooki has spent the last couple of weeks hitting the gym!

The pint-sized MTV reality star showed off her new slimmer figure this week via a set of photos on her twitter page. In her recent photos, the 23-year-old appears to be at her slimmest yet since joining the mega-hit show almost two years ago.

And if Snooki’s recent tweets are any indication, she did it the old fashioned way – through diet and exercise. “As everyones planning their night at the club, I’m wondering when Golds closes lol. #motivated,” tweeted the Snooks on April 16 referencing the popular Gold’s Gym.

“Water is my new best friend. #dieting,” she also tweeted on April 15. Snooki, who has been open about her battle with bulimia and anorexia in the past, told UsWeekly back in January, “I just want to get back into shape like I used to be.” She is definitely well on her way! More recent photos of Snooki from this week below.

Snooki and the rest of the gang will jet off to Italy to shoot season 4 sometime in May. And speaking of Italy, it seems the mayor of Italian city Florence (the city the Jersey Shore gang will be getting their GTL on) has issued the cast a list of rules to abide by during filming.

The New York Post reports Matteo Renzi, made the list of rules public via Italian newspaper Corriere Della Sera. The rules are below -

– The cast will not be filmed in bars and clubs that serve alcohol.
– The cast will not be filmed drinking in public.
– The show will not be filmed to promote Florence as a drinking town.
– The show should be filmed in a manner to promote Italy (not Americans visiting Italy) and feature it’s culture and good food.

So let’s see, no drinking in public and no bars that serve alcohol. So are you as worried about season 4 as we are? As we reported weeks ago, the Italians got a glimpse of the Jersey Shore series for the first time last month when the show began airing there and they were not impressed with the cast’s shenanigans. “They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” columnist Roberto Del Bove lamented.

And finally, Life & Style magazine is reporting that The Situation, who reportedly earned $5 million last year, is not the only JS cast member raking in the dough!

DJ Pauly D reportedly earns half a million dollars a month according to the mag! “He makes at least $500,000 a month,” an insider tells Life & Style. And how does he earn that much? Apparently with his DJ gigs, endorsement deals, and his own spin-off TV series. He is also reportedly in talks with 50 Cent to sign with the rapper’s record label, G-Unit.

Pauly D’s most lucrative job of all is apparently being one of the nation’s most in-demand DJs right now. “That alone commands up to $40,000 per set, and he does three to six gigs per week,” the insider says. Mamma mia! It really pays to be a fist-pumper.

Jersey Shore 3 Cast

After the widely reported contract hold outs, all of the Jersey Shore cast members have signed on to return for season 4!

TMZ reports Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang will be heading to Italy in May to start filming. While TMZ doesn’t state the exact amount the cast will be earning, it does add that everyone is “very pleased with the outcome.”

Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast got a HUGE raise! Just how huge? Let’s try over $100,000 per episode! Yes, you read that right. Sources close to the negotiations tell EW members of the “core group” are now pulling down at least $100,000 per episode.

With each season producing an average of 14 episodes, this means a number of the Jersey Shore cast will earn over $1 million each for season 4 to simply drink, party & fight. Wowzers! The cast reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for season 3.

And finally, MTV announced last week it has picked up two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. The first show will focus on DJ Pauly D and his life on the road as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.” While the second show will follow BFFs Snooki and JWoww, chronicling their experiences as roommates after their lives on “Jersey Shore.”

MTV has ordered 12 episodes of each spin-off, and plans to debut both shows sometime in 2012.

While MTV continues to prove it pays to be a Teen Mom, the original teen mom Bristol Palin is proving it REALLY pays.

See, after getting pregnant at age 17 in 2008, Bristol was hired by the Candie’s Foundation to become a spokesperson for abstinence, and yes, you read that right.

The AP reported this week that Bristol earned as astonishing $262,500 from the nonprofit Candie’s Foundation in 2009 alone for giving speeches about her experience as a teen mother and why kids should abstain from sex.

The founder of the organization however defends the gross amount. “Bristol did a tremendous amount of work for us — many, many days and weeks,” says Neil Cole. “She is such a lightning rod. Everyone is familiar with the Palins, and Bristol turned out to be, as someone said today, the gift that keeps on giving.”

And just in case you’re still confused or puzzled — Bristol, after getting knocked up at age 17, earned $262,500 the next year by becoming an abstinence ambassador. Yep.

In other news that will leave you scratching your head, Jersey Shore star Snooki is also on the receiving end of some backlash after it was revealed she earned $32,000 to speak to students at Rutgers University.

What makes the story more gross interesting is the fact that Snooki earned $2000 more than Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison will get for this year’s commencement address. Oh but it gets better as Snooki’s speaking engagement only lasted 2 hours.

Snooki’s manager Dan Mackey attempted to defend his client by telling PEOPLE, “The $32,000 covered both shows, the host, all the travel and all the expenses. She roughly earned around $24,000 or $25,000.” Right, because that makes it much better.

The NY Post reports that a number of parents and Rutdgers students are outraged. “It’s disgusting,” said Nester Delgado, 43, whose daughter is a Rutgers freshman.”Next year, is it going to be J-WOWW or The Situation?”

“My tuition dollars wasted on Snooki,” a student wrote. “Rutgers probably could have paid her with a case of beer.” Can’t really argue with that point.

Members of the Rutgers University Programming Association (RUPA), which organized the event, are however defending the high speaking fee, stating the group had been looking for someone who could appeal to the student community. “We’re trying to provide different kinds of experiences to students,” said the group’s president, Ana Castillo.

So what did the Snooks talk about? She spoke about her signature hair pouf and GTL lifestyle while offering such advice as “When you’re tan, you feel better about yourself,” and “Study hard, but party harder.”

Those wild and crazy kids of the Jersey Shore are already stirring up some controversy in Italy though they have yet to arrive for the filming of their 4th season.

See while MTV confirmed earlier this year that season four of the super mega hit show will be filmed in Italy, the show had yet to actually air in the country. That all changed this week when the show made its debut on Italian television, and let’s just say the Italians are no fans. In fact, the cast is now on the receiving end of some major backlash.

“They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” wrote columnist Roberto Del Bove in Rome newspaper New Notzie.

It only gets worse as a preview of the show posted on an MTV Italia website drew some nastier comments.”When I see this, I wonder whether [Osama] Bin Laden had a point,” lamented one poster, going a bit overboard perhaps.

“Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity” is what was written about the show in another popular Rome newspaper, Corriere della Sera.

The Italians might be happy to know that only part of the fourth season will be filmed in Italy. This isn’t the first time the Jersey Shore clan has been criticized for their shenanigans as the show also drew major ire from Italian-American groups during their first season, leading to some boycotts by advertisers.

Love them or hate them, the show is definitely here to stay as the season 3 finale last week drew record ratings for MTV, with over 7.6 million viewers tuning in.

Speaking of season 4, RadarOnline is now reporting that there is a contract dispute brewing with some of the cast members. Apparently, cast members “Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and Pauly D have not finalized their contracts because they can’t agree on the amount.”

“As of last week Deena hadn’t signed her contract either but Ronnie, Sammi, and Vinny were done,” reveals a source, um does Deena not realize she’s very expendable?. “Time is short, everyone is getting concerned because they’re supposed to leave for Italy soon, I just hope they can settle it,” the source adds.

The cast also went through contract disputes last year as they went on a short strike before season three; eventually negotiating a 200% raise from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode.

And finally, the reunion show airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. We will revisit the top moments of the show with the cast and also find out why Sammi and Ronnie broke up again for the 2000th time back in January.

TELL US – THE ITALIANS, THEY HAVE A POINT NO? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION SHOW?

It seems following their most recent break up in January, the poster couple for on-again off-again relationships, Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola, continue to remain broken up.

In the latest issue of Life & Style magazine, the Jersey Shore stars open up about their break up and the reason they might be done for good this time.

According to Ronnie, he has now realized he and Sam are just better off apart. “Some people are just toxic to each other,” says Ronnie, adding that Sammie’s lie about hooking up with a friend on the show was also a breaking point. “Cheating is where I draw the line,” states Single Ronnie, 25, adding that he’s too young for a relationship.

Sammi, 24, reveals the guy Arvin was just a friend, but now she says she’ll never speak to him again. “I was given a bad-luck streak, and it was like everything at once came tumbling down,” Sammi tells Life & Style.

“We’re better off career- and health-wise figuring out what we need for ourselves,” adds Ronnie.

And sad news for fans of the show as the season 3 finale airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. On the 13th and final episode of the season, “summer comes to an end in the Season 2 finale, which finds one couple reaching a crossroads in their relationship, while another couple makes theirs official.”

In other Shore news, Snooki continues to enjoy the good life as she was photographed in her bathing suit not once, but twice in the past week. First, the Snooks hosted a pool party at Wet Republic in Vegas wearing a bikini and a cover up, and then days later she was photographed in Hawaii in a one piece. More photos of the Snooks below!

It seems former Jersey Shore star Angelina Pivarnick is still a little peeved about the way her former roommates treated her, most notably Mike ‘The Situation‘ Sorrentino, who she now believes is “gay” because of the way he treats women.

“I think Mike is gay,” Angelina states bluntly to Popeater. “I think he’s gay because of the way he talks and the way he abuses girls. He talks down to women.”

Oh but Angelina had more to say, stating her past hook up with The Sitch was pretty lackluster. “I didn’t have sex with him but to be honest with you, to get a girl riled up to the point where you want to have sex, he doesn’t even know how to do that. I honestly feel like he’s in the closet right now; he doesn’t want to come out.”

Wowzers. As for Mike, his rep called Angelina’s comments “ridiculous,” adding that “obviously the only way she can get press is to slander my client. She’s become a circus sideshow. Kinda sad to see.”

In other Shore news, on-again off-again couple Ronnie Magro and Sammi Giancola continue to remain broken up for the moment. And when the HollywoodLife caught up with Ronnie this week, he made it clear he is still ‘Single Ronnie’ and had no plans to apologize to Sammi for the way he treated her on the show.

“I saw the whole season in advance,” Ronnie says. “It is what it is. It happened. You know, you learn from your mistakes and just go from there.” And when it comes to the upcoming 4th season, to be filmed in Italy, Ronnie reveals he is open to anything including hook ups with locals. “We’ll see what happens. We’ll see what it’s got!” said Ronnie.

And on tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore, titled, “A House Divided,” Snooki and Vinny have a falling out; Mike continues to instigate drama between Sammi and Ronnie; Pauly and Vinny try to hook up with Deena’s friend, which doesn’t go over well with Deena.
