Even though we’re pretty sure no one actually watched The Pauly D Project, apparently someone did because Pauly’s road manager, Biggie, has decided to take off on his own. Wetpaint reports that since appearing on the show, Biggie has received many DJing offers of his own and has decided to stop living his dreams through Pauly and pursue his own career. But, no worries, the pair are still BFFs. The other members of Pauly’s crew, JROC, Ryan and Jerry show no signs of leaving the fold.
It’s about to get real for Mob Wives star Renee Graziano. Her ex, Junior Pagan, who was recently outed for wearing a wire during the VH1 taping of his ex wife’s reality show, may have to testify in a mob trial next month.
The New York Post reports that prosecutors are “reluctant” to have him testify, they’ve been using the information he’s provided to work out plea agreements. Junior has taped conversations with at least six notable mafiosos, including Renee’s dad. Since the news of Junior’s arrangement with the government leaked, he hasn’t been spotted on Staten Island, but can still be seen on the current second season airing on VH1.
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!

Jersey Shore‘s Deena Nicole followed in the footsteps of her fellow meatball Snooki and dropped a bunch of weight recently with the help of the “Fresh Diet” a pre-packaged meal delivery system popular with other celebs like Sherri Shepherd. Radar posted the photo of her recent transformation on their site, and I’m still suspicious that she had a bit more done than just lose weight, like perhaps get an entirely new face, but we may never truly know!

Now that the cast of Jersey Shore is facing what may be their final season at the shore house, the cast looks like they’re all going forward with new ways to stay relevant. Because once the show is over, their “fans” will all move on to the next train wreck.
The Situation, who recently performed a stint in rehab, announced a new pranking series that premiered earlier this week. The classy show is looking for viewers to submit videos based on suggestions like “Best Hook Up with a Grenade” or “Loudest Fart in a Public Place.” This makes Jersey Shore look like Mad Men. The Situation says he’s happy to be free to be as gross as he wants to be, “I’m excited to work in an uncensored environment and see where the show takes me.”
Vinny Guadagnino, who famously left the show early last season due to anxiety, made good on his threat to publish a self-help book. Control the Crazy: My Plan to Stop Stressing, Avoid Drama and Maintain Your Inner Cooldropped this week. Here is one suggestion on how to work on anxiety that requires no therapy or medication: stay out of stressful environments, like say, reality show filming. Vinny will also tour the country and speak to college kids about anxiety disorder. I also have Generalized Anxiety Disorder and am always happy to see a public person speak out about this, but it still feels a bit fake. On the other hand, if it gets anyone out there into treatment and makes them feel less alone, then I’m glad Vinny is doing this.
Finally, another change for our pregnant guidette, Snooki. Not only has he had to give up her legendary binge drinking now that she’s pregnant, but Snooki had to give up her true love: tanning! Snooki posted photos on her Twitter that showed off what might actually be her natural hue and it’s more China Doll than Lindsay Lohan orange. Dare I say she looks cuter with less tanning? It doesn’t matter, because she’ll likely go back once the baby is born.

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!
This week’s print edition of Reality Weekly claims that The Situation is in a spiral and it’s all taking a toll on him, despite his seeking helping at the Cirque Lodge in Utah. A friend tells the magazine that “Mike projects this image that he’s in love with himself, but inside, he’s really fragile and insecure. He has a really dark side and a lot of demons, which is why he developed a problem with addictions”.
The friend claims that Mike has to drink in order to feel comfortable in social settings and that he beds multiple women in an attempt to boost his fragile ego. “He gets such an ego boost if a woman wants to sleep with him. He’s always trying to top himself; how many girls he can have at once, how many Miss Hawaiian Tropic models he can sleep with, how many different girls he can have in one day. ”
