It appears MTV”s genius plan to have theJersey Shore cast film seasons 4 and 5 back to back without giving them a break continues to backfire.
Just days after Vinny Guadagnino quit the show for good, it appears The Situationmight be following in Vinny’s footsteps. According to TMZ, The Sitch actually walked off the show on Wednesday, expressing his frustration with the producers, before ultimately returning. Sources tell TMZ The Situation has been antsy lately even telling producers he doesn’t need the show.
And while TMZ is stating Mike is back in the house, another source tells UsWeekly that might be temporary. “Mike walked off the show. He’s so over the whole thing,” an insider says of the 29-year-old MTV star. “Everyone in the house is so unhappy.” Yikes.
The above photo was taken on Wednesday after The Sitch got into an argument with show producers, ripped off his microphone, and stormed off.
Without Vinny and Mike, it seems the show might be in big trouble. Perhaps the cast’s care free attitude also has to do with the report that MTV is planning to replace them after season 5.
In other Shore news, Jenni “JWoww” Farley is bringing her wow factor to the latest issue of Maxim magazine. The non Italian native strips down to some barely there lingerie in an all new spread. JWoww tells the mag her celebrity crush is Leonardo DiCaprio and her turn off includes guys who call her “JWoww.” She also reveals she was excited about filming in Italy because she actually studied art for seven years.

UPDATE #3 – Evel Dick posted a video online on his RTVZone site revealing he left the show due to an emergency involving someone close to him. He claims out of respect for the person’s privacy, he will not reveal more information or even who this person is. He denies it was a publicity stunt and states he was there to win the game. He apologized to CBS, Danielle and his alliance. There are rumors it might have something to do with his girlfriend. Dick’s absence came to light last Thursday when the live feeds came on and fans discovered Dick had gone into the diary room to never return.
UPDATE #2 – Evel Dick just posted the following on his twitter page – “I will be releasing a public video statement on @RTVZone in the next couple days concerning my departure from the Big Brother House.” He added, “But to squash the rumors, I am not in jail, don’t have cancer, my mother son and girlfriend are not in the hospital & I was not kicked out.”
UPDATE – CBS has now confirmed Dick has indeed left the game. “Due to a personal matter, houseguest Dick Donato had to leave the game unexpectedly on Thursday. His departure will be addressed on the episode to be broadcast on Wednesday, July 13,” said a rep for the network.
Ai ya ya, just one day into the live feeds, some major updates to report.
It now appears Evel Dick, one of the former HGs to return to the game, has exited the Big Brotherhouse. Dick’s absence was first noticed on the live feeds early this morning as he was no where to be found once the feeds came on.
According to the HGs, Dick had been called into the diary room and remained there for hours while the HGs worried about his whereabouts.
Finally Dick’s daughter Danielle was called into the diary room hours ago and told Dick had left the show. In return, Danielle was given a golden key which will keep her safe until week 10. No word yet on why Dick left the show but Danielle was assured it had nothing to do with their immediate family. Will update this story once the reason for Dick’s exit comes out.
And as reported earlier this week, the returning HGs were indeed Jeff and Jordan, Brendon and Rachel, and of course Evel Dick and Danielle. The nominations had already taken place before Dick’s exit so based on the BB schedule, Dick’s absence won’t be addressed until the Wednesday episode.
Rachel is the current HOH and she has nominated Porsche and Keith. (Highlight the previous sentence to see the names).

It came out this week that Sonja might lose her $6 million home due to her bankruptcy in addition to millions of dollars being held up in her divorce settlement with ex-husband John Adams Morgan.
“I have not made public my financial status affected by my divorce and outstanding business matters as I prefer to keep these matters private. However, it has now become public only due to my Chapter 11 filing, and has raised a lot of questions in the media, along with incorrect assumptions and statements,” says Sonja. “Many times divorce can be difficult especially when significant assets are co-mingled. Out of respect to my ex-husband, our families, my brand and future ventures, I ask that the media understand that during negotiations with interested parties on all sides I will not be able to discuss any details.”

In the twitter interview organized by Celebuzz yesterday, Teresa revealed her regrets in doing the RHONJ, talked about those pesky divorce rumors regarding her and hubby Joe Giudice, and also revealed if she’s really planning to have more children.
When a fan asked Teresa if she regrets doing the RHONJ, she gave a surprising reply of yes. “Gonna be honest, I’m thankful for the blessings it brought but yes, I do regret it esp when they cast my family :(,” wrote Teresa adding, “I would never have done the show if I thought it would be me & my inlaws. No fame or opport is worth it. #family1st.” This isn’t the first time Teresa has made mention of the show’s adverse effects on her family though she has yet to mention any desire to leave the show.
When it comes to her marriage with hubby Joe – some tabloids have them divorcing – Teresa revealed they are doing great. “We are great, thank u! the stuff in the tabloids ab us divorcing is complete BS. our family is together & happy xx,” she wrote. So can we expect a new Giudice baby in the future, a son to be precise based on last week’s In Touch cover story featuring Teresa? Well she reveals uncertainty. “I’d love a boy and I know Joe would too but I think I’m done. If it happens it happens, but 4 is enough!”
Teresa also shared she is currently working on her third cookbook. As for her favorite housewives series other than the NJ series of course, Teresa reveals she’s a fan of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. “Love Lisa & Kyle,” she added.
In other NJ news, last week Teresa’s sis-in-law Melissa Gorgarevealed her 5-year-old daughter Antonia Gorga will be making her acting debut in a Snazaroo commercial on the Nickelodeon network. Melissa also posted photos of her 3 kids visiting the Jersey Boardwalk this weekend. Those pics are below!
And this week, Teresa also revealed her daughter Gia Giudice participated in a dance competition in Florida during which she came in first place. Teresa blogged, “Gia and I are finally home from Florida. We had such a great time and she did so great! She won 1st place and got 5 stars for her team, then she got 4-1/2 stars out of 5 for her personal routine which she only learned in February.” Photos of Teresa with Gia below!
And finally, below is a video of the NJ Housewives, Caroline, Teresa & Melissa, during their appearance on Live with Regis and Kelly last Friday -

Jeff Lewis returns in Season 5 of Flipping Out and oh how I’ve missed him. Never leave me again, Jeffrey Lewis.
Opening the show we learn, Jeff has sold his Valley Oak house and is living in a sacreligious rental called West Knoll, because his schedule is too cray-cray to find new digs. Perhaps if he stopped micromanaging Zoila so much, he’d have more time, but something tells me he’d NEVER cut that out of his schedule. Jeff threatens Saint Zoila with a walker if she doesn’t stop resting her hands on the walls of his pristine rental – hey, the man doesn’t want to forfeit his security deposit! Zoila and Jeff go back and forth over who is more lucky to be stuck with the other one – Zoila is more lucky, no Jeff is more lucky. Personally I feel most lucky to have you both back in my reality TV life.
Sarah (with her signature garish makeup) and Trace are also back, and they are fighting over who gets to sit further away from “crazy” aka Jeff, who is apparently now screening their emails. I bet Jeff Lewis Design blocks Facebook at the office. Lame! Sarah is still looking for more project manager duties, and has been handling a lot of the client needs with (surprisingly!) few mistakes.

UsWeekly is reporting the newly single Emily, who recently confirmed her break up with Brad Womack, is angling to become the next Bachelorette just a month after splitting from Brad.
“She hasn’t officially signed on yet, but it looks like a done deal,” a source reveals. And despite Emily’s recent comments that appearing on the series was “the last thing on my mind,” the insider adds that Emily is hoping to use her stint on the show to jump-start a broadcast career… of course. “She wants to be famous,” the source says of the single mom to 6-year-old daughter Ricki.
And with the show ratings down about 10% this season with the boringAshley Hebert, ABC execs reportedly have high hopes for Emily: “They know she’s a fan favorite,” reveals a source.
In addition to boosting her profile, Emily is also reportedly ready to move on from her ex-fiance Brad. “He has issues, and you could tell from the start that it was never going to work with Emily,” another insider reveals. A pal however insists Emily “gave it everything she had.”
If Emily does indeed become the next Bachelorette, it is likely ABC will film her season right away instead of waiting until next year. Plus in looking at Ashley’s final four, none of the men really seem like Bachelor candidates.

Forget the grenade whistle, sound the litigation trombone! As Jersey Shore progresses, the gorilla juicehead gang seems to be more about lawsuits than bathing suits. The Situation finally comes to a resolution with his estranged father, but Pauly D has been strapped with a lawsuit to the tune of millions of dollars. It’s a total GTL situation: Guidos Turned Litigants. Hey-oh!
It seems Mike Sorrentino’s recent Situation with his father has become a lot more civil. You may recall the older Sorrentino was basically exploiting his son and using his son’s fame and popularity to gain notoriety and some extra cash with his website TheConfrontationSite.com. So wrong. If I were Mike, I’d be calling my dad the “Bitchuation” but that’s just me. Luckily, according to TMZ, the lawsuit Sitch brought against his father with claims of using the star’s name, image and likeness without permission is being dismissed much like a grenade after a late night hot tub session.
Frank Sorrentino was sued by his son after creating a website, now defunct, which bashed the Sitch. Frank believes he was the victim of a con artist, Robert Fletcher, who hoped to capitalize on the Sorrentino’s rocky father-son relationship. Frank is apologetic and claims, “I regret getting involved with Robert Fletcher and I am sorry that I participated, to the detriment of my son Michael.” It’s worth noting that the terms of the settlement required Fletcher to pay Mike $5000 while his father got off scott free with just an apology. Blood is apparently thicker than water at the Shore.
Meanwhile, DJ “Pauly D” Delvecchio finds himself in $4 million worth of legal woes. The New York Post is reporting that Paul Lis, a DJ out of Connecticut, is suing Pauly D for his part in damaging his business. Years before Pauly D was lugging cases of Aqua Net across the turnpike, Lis had trademarked the name “DJ Paulie.” After forty years in the disc jockey industry, Lis claims that the Jersey Shore information with which MTV flooded (and continues to flood) the internet has made it a virtual impossibility (literally…bad pun) for potential advertisers and clients to find his site. Lis’ attorney elaborates, “He formally trademarked the name ‘DJ Paulie’ and then came the ‘Jersey Shore’ which basically wiped him off the face of the map.”
Lis has even sent a cease and desist letter to the network but got no response. During this time, Pauly D has applied with the United States Patent and Trademark Office to secure a copyright for his name, claiming it’s a very different business and there is no chance for likelihood of confusion with the original Paulie’s registered moniker. Shockingly, Pauly 2.0′s multiple applications were denied. As someone schooled in the excitement that is trademark law, I can say the USPTO doesn’t often deny applications for no reason.
Lis’ suit reaches beyond Pauly D to the deeper pockets of Delveccio’s employers, MTV and The Palms Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, claiming that by employing the young high-haired DJ, the entities are further burying the original Paulie’s name and livelihood. The allegations in the complaint assert that “[t]he reality television show [follows] a group of young adults pursuing a debauched lifestyle suggestive of loose morals, violence, intoxication and liberal profanity — the exact opposite of the reputation the Plaintiff, ‘DJ Paulie’ that[sic] he had spent decades cultivating.”
While I’m thrilled to report that the Situation and his father have buried the hatchet, I have just one word of advice for Pauly D. Give up your dream of being the next big DJ. Forget DTF (Dudes Trademarking Falsities) and RUN, don’t walk, to the USPTO to copyright “Cabs ah he-ah” and “T-shirt time.” Just putting those phrases on t-shirts, license plates and Mardi Gras trumpets will keep you comfortable, coiffed and hot-tubbed for the rest of your life.
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE SITUATION SETTLING HIS DISPUTE WITH DEAR OLD DAD? DO YOU THINK DJ PAULIE’S LAWSUIT HAS ANY MERIT AGAINST DJ PAULY D?
