Jersey Shore star Pauly D’s GTL routine today = gym, tan, lawsuit. Pauly D’s former talent agency, ICM, is suing him for their cut of his salary.
Pauly dropped the agency and moved over to WME, but ICM claims that Pauly still owes them their ten percent–$370,000–for the past two season of the show.
The lawsuit isn’t shocking; it happens all the time in Hollywood. But what is shocking to me, is how much the cast is making! In two seasons, Paulyraked in almost $4 million between his salary, bonuses and other merchandising.
This is why I got a little bored with Jersey Shore after the first two seasons. At first, it was fun because they were these broke roommates taking jobs at random shops down the Shore. Their popularity skyrocketed and suddenly they were raking in HUGE money for appearances and got hefty raises from MTV. After that, I had a hard time buying into this “regular working class” party house at the shore premise, knowing they were actually making millions.
In other Shore news, recently rehabbed housemate, The Situation, is being encouraged to bring along a sober coach when he returns to Seaside next season!
A source shared with Radar Online that “doctors at Cirque Lodge advised him that he should have a sober living companion with him at all times when he is in Seaside Heights. The sober living companion would have to move into the Shore house along with the other cast members. The companion wouldn’t need, nor want to appear on camera, but putting Mike back into that world without a strong support system around him is asking for trouble. Mike doesn’t think he needs someone to be with him and essentially be a babysitter, and this has his doctors extremely concerned for his sobriety and recovery.”
I’m almost disappointed that the sober coach most likely will not appear on the show. The storyline possibilities are endless! MTV’s scriptwriters producers should rethink that one!
In all seriousness, I’m curious to see how this plays out once filming starts. Will MTV make light of his sobriety attempt and turn into drama for the show? Or will they take the high road and truly try to help him stay clean?
In other MTV news, I’m heading up a letter writing campaign. MTV has scarred me for life and ruined my beloved ‘Titanic’. Take a look at the nude Situation below. As a friend, I’m warning you: You can’t unsee it once you’ve pressed play!
According to MTV, their mega hit show Jersey Shore will be back for a sixth season!
Even better, the entire cast, including a pregnant Snooki, are all set to return.
“America’s favorite housemates will all return to their home-away-from-home, and the house dynamic is headed into unchartered territory… as their lives outside the “Shore” take off in exciting new directions,” said MTV in a press release. “While things will definitely be a little different this time when they hit the boardwalk, their trademark hilarity and family dysfunction will remain the same.”
Filming on the new season is set to begin this summer in Seaside Heights, NJ, when the Snooks will be in her third trimester.
This news is a bit surprising, as Snooki, 24, recently stated she did not want to live in the shore house while pregnant. “I’m not living in that house being pregnant. I don’t want to be one of those moms who’s pregnant in a club. It’s disgusting,” said Snooki to UsWeekly earlier this month.
It will definitely be interesting to see how MTV decides to handle Snooki’s pregnancy.

The new series will give fans an inside look into Pauly D’s life away from Seaside Heights, NJ, as cameras document his transition from world-famous housemate to world-class DJ, with his best friends from his home state of Rhode Island along for the ride.
The press release states “viewers will get to see Pauly D chase his dream as he signs a recording contract with rap icon 50 Cent’s G-Note Records, accompanies pop icon Britney Spears on her international “Femme Fatale” tour and tries to balance it all with the array of photo shoots, public appearances and media interviews that are now a part of his everyday life.”
Joining Pauly D on the show are his boys: Michael “Biggie” Morgan –a DJ who became best friends with Pauly D when they were DJs together at Club ULTRA in Rhode Island; Gerard “Big Jerry” Gialanella – the unofficial baby brother of Pauly D’s crew (and often the butt of their group’s jokes), who also serves as Pauly D’s personal security and a much-needed confidante; Ryan Labbe – Pauly D’s partner in crime who is quick to give him a reality check; and Jason “JROC” Craig – known in Las Vegas’ most elite circles as “Mr. Vegas,” and serves as Pauly D and Co.’s West Coast social liaison.
With those intros out-of-the-way, the trailer for Pauly’s show is below! The show seems like a bit of a snoozefest to me, but I’ll let you be the judge! The series debuts on MTV on March 29 at 10:30/9:30c.
In what was likely a calculated PR move by the press-loving Nicole Polizzi, better known to us as all Snooki, rumors abound that she and boyfriendJionni Lavalle are engaged! This is on the heels of rumors that Snooki was pregnant, which she has vehemently denied.
While no announcement has been made, Snooki has not been shy about her marriage motivation. In one interview, she said,” Jionni’s a great guy, so you know I’m so down to make guido babies with him!”. A source says that the feeling is mutual, and that the proper hardware has been procured. “Jionni bought the ring. He wants to propose on Valentine’s Day,” the source says. She’s waiting for the right time to announce the news to promote her new show.”
Valentine’s Day has come and gone, and there’s been no news of an engagement, and with a Snooki and JWoww spin-off just about to start shooting in Jersey City, I would predict that an engagement announcement would be timed with the premiere of the show, complete with engagement storylines (Snooki Buys A Wedding Dress At Forever 21 and other episodes).
Snooki‘s relationship with Jionni has been the most positive one she’s engaged with thus far, in a recent video posted to USmagazine.com, she and co-star Jenni “JWoww” Farley attribute the success of this relationship (and Jenni’s relationship with boyfriend Roger) to the maturity of the men involved. Snooki and JWoww are quick to point out that both men haven’t changed their careers or lives to accommodate their reality-television girlfriends. Snooki succinctly puts it, “They’re men, not boys.” She adds, “I’s meant to be!” she gushed. “We’re lucky to have found guys that we have found.”
In the video, Snooki also admits that Jionni never refers to her by her Jersey Shore nickname, referring to her as Nicole, and that she would “throw up” if he ever did so.
Snooki’s domestic bliss will be threatened in tonight’s episode of Jersey Shore, where The Situation will finally get to unleash his scheme against her and tell Jionni that they hooked up at the beginning of Jionni and Snooki’s relationship. Snooki responds with her usual grace and class.
Also, Angelina Pivarnick, better known as the Staten Island dump, will be returning on tonight’s episode! In a semi-awkward moment, Pauly DandVinnyspot her at a club and actually decide to greet her. After exchanging pleasantries, Pauly D tries to avoid her while Vinny actually considers taking her home and “banging her.”
The new episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. Check out the preview video below!

Well, it’s official part of the Jersey Shore cast is going their separate ways — at least temporarily! Pauly D is getting his own show set to air this spring on MTV!
DJ Pauly D has just wrapped filming for a new reality show and fans can look for it on the network “very soon!” No word yet on what the concept of Pauly’s new show is, but hopefully it will focus a little more on his DJ-ing! “The show is done being filmed,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “Pauly is really excited for the spinoff — he wants to be a part of the Jersey Shore franchise until he’s a senior citizen.”
In other Seaside Heights news Snooki has officially reached her goal weight of 98lbs! The pint-sized guidette has become even more pint-sized as she recently Tweeted that she is now the same weight as she was in high school. Snooki tells fans she has been working out hardcore to achieve her goal and can’t wait to tone up.
The newly svelte Snooks has been posting a plethora of photos on Twitter advertising her new teeny tiny frame and I have to say she looks fantastic! Some of Snooki’s new Twitter pics are below.
Snooki warned Jersey Shore fans that they won’t be seeing her new body on the upcoming season. “Bcuz I was still heavy wen we filmed in July&tats wat ur gonna see Jan 5th. I dont give a shit tho, i feel great now & thats all that”
In the past, Snooki has admitted to struggling with an eating disorder so hopefully she is losing weight healthily. Despite her new healthy lifestyle and physique, it doesn’t seem like Snooki has given up the booze that made her famous. In several of her TwitPics she’s seen holding a glass of libations!
Snooki seems much happier these days and things with her boyfriend Jionni LaValle are apparently going very well based on her Twitter action! Snooki recently wrote, “Had an amazing Christmas with jionni’s family! Love my future husband ;)”

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 Guadagninoquitting the show, only to return days later.
