We've got a situation here. I blame people's awareness on how harmful UV rays are…and that's a positive. The only good summer color comes from a bottle that may or may not turn your ankles and palms orange. But isn't orange the way the kids from Jersey Shore taught us how to roll?
Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and crew took take pride in having a skin tones that rival that of an Oompah Loompah, so it's no surprise that post-reality show fame, Sitch has attempted to capitalize on the GTL lifestyle that made him a household name. Unfortunately for the employees of his tanning salon, things haven't been so rosy.
The reality star edition of Marriage Boot Camp kicks off tonight and the cast celebrated the premiere last night in NYC.
The cast members and a few other supporters turned out last night at Catch Rooftop to party (as much as a few of the pregnant ladies could) and enjoy their moment in the spotlight. Among those in attendance: Jenni "JWoww" Farley and her fiance Roger Mathews, who are expecting a baby girl this summer. Also hitting the red carpet: Traci Braxton and Kevin Surrat, Tanisha Thomas and Clive Muir, as well asTrista and Ryan Sutter.
I know I say it every time I have to write about Snookiand company, but seriously, did any of you see this coming? I loved Jersey Shore, but I never thought the cast would end up actually maturing into calm, functioning members of society…and making cute babies to boot! Sure it was fun to watch them face plant in bars, fist pump in clubs, and tan until they were more orange than an Oompah Loompah, but I didn't realize it would be just as much fun to see the kind of people they've become. GTL4LIFE! Cabs ah heeya!
Snooki has since traded alligator slippers for diapers with the absolutely precious Lorenzo, and she's planning her dream wedding to fiance Jionni LaValle. The couple is expecting their second child together, and he or she will totally be besties with JWoww'supcoming new addition (a girl!)! In an adorable video posted by the reality star, Snooki and Lorenzo learn the gender of the new baby. Jionni has planned a reveal, and it's hilarious to see their reactions!
Blue or pink–what do you think?

"I have read a lot of negativity concerning my second pregnancy, and I NEVER comment on what strangers think about my life, but when it concerns my family, something needs to be said," Snooki blogged recently. "I'm a momma bear and I will stick up for my family until the day I die, and even after that."
With that said, Snooki went back to her regularly scheduled life, which includes working out, making a living, and raising her cutie patootie Lorenzo. Yes – she still works out and she's proud of it. Cue the haters…
The Sorrentinos will follow Mike, Linda (mother), Marc (middle brother), Melissa (sister) and Frank (older brother), showing their real lives…after reality. This is a whole new situation — pun intended — for Mike. On the Jersey Shore he was known for stirring the pot, partying for a living, crashing his head into a wall in Italy and eventually filming a season sober, after a stint in rehab. So will viewers appreciate or even like the new Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino? Famous for his bad behavior, TVGN is banking on the likability of his 'real' personality.
From reality star to executive producer? Jenni "JWoww"Farley has come a long way since Jersey Shore? Who knew those crazy kids had such lofty aspirations in addition to fist pumping and a life of GTL? JWoww first followed in pal Snooki's fuzzy slipper clad footprints when she penned the "self-help" tomeThe Rules According to JWoww: Shore-Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition to the Curb, and now she's set her sights on the cinema.
Jenni is now taking her visions of orange meatballs and gorilla juiceheads to the big screen by serving as executive producer to the upcoming horror film Jersey Shore Massacre. Yes, really.
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!
