The National Geographic Channel (thank goodness they stopped trying to make “Nat Geo” stick) is introducing a new series that promises to be equal parts The Godfather, Jersey Shore, and The Sopranos. The show, American Gypsies, sounds like it will be entirely amazing, given that it’s produced by none other than everyone favorite martial arts underdog, Daniel-sanRalph Macchio. When does it start??
Ralph tells the Huffington Post, “This is a fascinating subculture that exists right here in New York. I was astounded by some of the customs and what I would call unorthodox choices and traditions, but [they were] kind of relatable in a way with me being from a Greek-Italian-American family. They have strong beliefs and family comes first — this story needed to be told.”
Snooki is spinning her Jersey Shore fame into a nice little nest egg for her growing family. So far we’ve seen Snooki’s Weight Loss Cookies, Snooki’s Slippers, a boxing team, tanning lotion, sunglasses, perfume, books, and now – Snooki’s Wild Cherry Soda!
Here she is attending the product launch at The Rocket Fizz Soda Pop & Candy Shop in Los Angeles yesterday.
I don’t think Jersey Shore will be the last we hear and see of Snooki. For someone who plays the resident ditz, this girl is making some smart business moves.

The Bravo Housewives aren’t the only ones who like to copy one another and engage in a little one-upmanship, apparently the girls of Jersey Shore are guilty of it, too.
Deena Cortese and Sammi ‘Sweetheart’ Giancola started sniping at each other on Twitter about their similar cars. It started off small with Sammi’s Tweet, bringing to light the fact that Deena had purchased a car very much like her own BMW. “congrats to @DeenaNicoleMTV for her new car that looks EXACTLY like mine. #cantyougetyourownstyle it’s alright Imitation is flattery”. She continued, “Anyways lol onto more important things in life then a car…”. After her followers started engaging, she wrote, “It’s all in good fun people relax alil..”.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
Rosie Pope is shaking her head right about now. Something tells me that Pregnant in Heels isn’t quite the same as Pregnant in Foam Platform Cheetah Flip Flops. Perhaps it could be a spin-off though, right? Our old friend Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi didn’t fare too well recently in her staple tacky platforms, taking a tumble in Seaside Heights, New Jersey. While tripping and falling in the streets is nothing new to MTV’s favorite meatball, usually it’s due to severe intoxication. However, no one wants to see a pregnant guidette taking a fall, given, you know, the fact she has a baby on board.
The Huffington Post reminds us that Snooki has touted her ability to walk tall (well, kind of) in heels during her pregnancy. The site reports that she told Good Morning America not too long ago, “I feel confident in them, and I know I’m not going to fall, so until it feels very uncomfortable, I’m still going to rock them. I’m only 24 and I’m pregnant — it doesn’t mean I need to be wearing flats and ugly shoes. I can still look good.” Maybe not flats, but perhaps Snooki should bring back those beautiful fuzzy pink sneaker slippers as she moves into her later trimester. We’re glad to know she’s okay though!
