I have a confession to make: I love (and miss) those crazy kids from Jersey Shore. Admittedly, I wasn't onboard when MTV's train wreck originally started, and my dear friends who raved about it and subsequently got me hooked piddled off after the second season. I didn't. Granted, I had to watch it for Reality Tea, but I so would have watched regardless…however, it was nice to have the guise of the blog to hide my true addiction. I could GTL (well, technically just "L") with the best of them. On the rare occasion I call for a taxi, I whisper "cabs a heeya" to myself when it arrives. True story.
Vanderpump Rules' Scheana Marie recently said that wedding spin-offs are "boring," and it's the only thing on which I will EVER agree with her. However, I'd totally watch Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi walk down the aisle. Of course, I'd want the entire gang (sans Jolie Trashbags) involved. Alas, I don't think I'll get my wish of televised Seaside nuptials (although my fingers remain crossed!), but it seems that Snooki's wedding to fiance (and dad of the cutest tiny guido gorilla juicehead toddler) Jionni LaValle is full steam ahead. After a year long engagement, Snooki has finally started planning the exciting event!
Amanda Markert is not happy over the unwanted media attention that Pauly D has brought her way since he shared that he's the father of Amanda's daughter, Amabella. The mother of his child took to Twitter to share her frustration over all that has transpired this week and it sounds like Pauly is the one reveling in all the press coming his way. I mean, he certainly hasn't been on our radar since Jersey Shore came to an end…
Amanda defended herself, sharing that the only person she told about her baby's paternity is Pauly himself. He's the one who ran to TMZ, etc, to give them the headlines and drag her through the mud. Pauly's even now claiming that Amanda is using him for fame. But if you read this woman's Twitter (which is now protected), she does not want any part of the spotlight.
Yesterday it was reported that the two are locked in a custody battle and Pauly believes baby mama Amanda Markert is unfit so he wants full custody. He's trying to get a Las Vegas judge to decide in his favor, meanwhile Amanda filed a custody suit in New Jersey!
The former Jersey Shore star also believes Amanda is an unstable fameho who was looking to get knocked up so she could score 18 years of child support. Supposedly supporting this is a photo she posted of five-month-old daughter Amabella (WTH with that name, people?!) surrounded by hundred dollar bills. And some tweets she posted announcing she just wants like soooo many baby clothes and costumes (COSTUMES people?!) for her baby girl.
Now the former VIP Hooters waitress (seriously people?!) is trying to sell some text messages allegedly from Pauly in which he tried to convince Amanda to have an abortion and said he would pay for it.
Pauly (aka Paul DelVecchio) welcomed a baby girl recently with a former flame that he met in Las Vegas. He's not sharing the mom's name, but she does live in New Jersey with the baby. TMZ reports that Pauly's daughter is a few months old already.
Pauly shared, "I'm proud I'm a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life."
The Jersey Shore cast (minus The Situation) came together yesterday for a special taping of 'Today', as they reopened the boardwalk in Seaside Heights. The boardwalk suffered major damage seven months ago during Hurricane Sandy, but has been restored through the efforts of several fundraising initiatives.
Also on hand to cut the ribbon was Governor Chris Christie, who has always been very vocal about his dislike of the Jersey Shore cast and the show itself. Hopefully Governor Christie will see that they've done a lot of good for the area, helping to raise money and awareness and driving tourists to the shore. After coming face to face with him, Snooki Tweeted, "Getting told why we are bad for jersey. Amazing…".
