We've got a situation here! I have to thank Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino for making that his catchphrase. It just makes blogging life easier. This time around, the Jersey Shore star is not only battling sobriety, but also a vodka company. If it were anyone other than Mike, I'd say they would likely chuckle at the irony.
Mike is suing Devotion Spirits, a company with which he penned an endorsement deal in 2010 (long before heading to rehab for addiction issues). The Situation claims that he maintained his end of the bargain, promoting the protein-infused vodka (yes, you read that correctly…protein-infused. It's alright to gag. I did.) and making the brand the success it is today. While I've never heard of it, I'm not surprised. I prefer to get my protein from some fancy scrambled eggs not my vodka tonic.
We begin with Rawn, Snooki, and Deena working at the Shore Store. The meatballs are already hoping to bail on their shift, and hard-working Ronnie is beyond frustrated. He and Danny retaliate by donning trucker hats and ditching work like true meatballs. Mike calls his sister and dishes on Paula. He wants a classy girl, and his sister gives him advice on how to proceed with "shocking" Paula. A giant storm rolls in (which I realize is nothing compared to the super storm), and Snooki and Deena are freaking out. Down the boardwalk, Ronnie and Danny drink fruity cocktails and laugh about the chaos the girls are likely unleashing on the store.
Sorry, Angelina Pivarnick, the cast has moved on without you. In light of tonight's Restore the Shore benefit airing on MTV, Angelina reached out to her former Jersey Shore employer and asked to be a part of the show. MTV made it pretty clear that they don't want Angelina to participate.
She griped to TMZ, "I remain uninvited to participate … even after attempts to contact the organizers by my management team." She says that it was a "sore reminder of how I have been treated in the past". Um, didn't she leave of her own free will? "This is a time where they should suck it up and stand on one side of the room and let me be there. I am very hurt by this."
I don't really think of Angelina as part of the "core" cast, so I'm not sure why she thought they'd include her? The Restore the Shore special will air tonight immediately following this week's episode of Jersey Shore.
TELL US – SHOULD MTV HAVE ALLOWED ANGELINA TO JOIN IN? ARE YOU WATCHING TONIGHT?
I am going to have to make some room on my DVR once Jersey Shore goes off the air because my favorite GTL-ing guido will be getting his own show. While the fist-pumping phenomenon has spawned spin-offs for Snooki and JWoww, as well as DJ Pauly D, this one is going to be a different format and star the lovable, eyebrow raising Vinny Guadagnino.
The new series, called The Show with Vinny, has been greenlighted by MTV and will be a talk show/reality show hybrid. It will be set in the Guadagnino's Staten Island home and feature some of Vin's more colorful relatives while Vinny interviews celebrities in his den.
It's still sad to see Seaside Heights in all of its glory, and our thoughts and prayers are still with the victims of Hurricane Sandy. Of course, our cringing and laughs are still with last night's episode of Jersey Shore. One half of the meatball brigade continued her messy behavior while a newly sober roommate learned some "shocking" things about his new girlfriend.
Deena Cortese is crying and yelling at Ronnie Ortiz-Magro. It's awkward. He wants to know how he can help her get through her major issues. DJ "Pauly D" Delvecchio believes that Deena will be a new person in the morning…once she's sober. You have to be worried about our future when Pauly D is the voice of reason. Vinny Guadagnino thinks that Deena is suffering from anxiety, and he's an expert on the subject. Deena is hyperventilating, and Vinny is trying to teach her how to cope. Inside, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola is chastising Rawn for being too hard on Deena even she's losing patience with the roommate herself. Rawn and Jenni "JWoww" Farley think that Deena's parents coddle their daughter too much. Vinny is concerned that Deena is drinking through her issues.
Ronnie calls Deena's mom and learns that her parents are on the way to pick up their daughter. He explains to her parents that Deena is just wasted. She doesn't need to go home, she needs to sleep off her alcohol binge. The housemates are happy that Vinny was able to talk some sense into Deena, and she's much less angry when she rejoins everyone in the den.
On Wednesday the reality TV star, aka Jenni Farley, turned an Ab Cuts promotional appearance at a GNC store in NYC into a canned good drive for the victims of Superstorm Sandy.
We all made fun and recoiled at these Shore party animals when they burst onto the scene three years ago, but they are showing their true colors as they step up to help this area of Jersey that made them famous! Be sure to tune in on Thursday night for the MTV special!
