In response to The Situation‘s lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, the company apparently believes they’ve done nothing wrong and The Situation has no grounds to sue them after they supposedly banned him from wearing their clothes and then referenced his famous phrases on two of their t-shirts! The company is accusing The Situation of having both a baseless lawsuit and of being unable to take a joke. Seriously.
The Situation filed a lawsuit against the company for knocking off slogans he claims he trademarked. The trademarks in question G.T.L and The Situation, of course!
Abercrombie & Fitch now denies the Jersey Shore star has any grounds to sue them “because he doesn’t technically own the trademarks in question… he only applied for them.” According to TMZ, A&F claims The Situation’s application for Gym Tan Laundry has been “suspended” because MTV “already owns ‘Gym Tanning Laundry,’ and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they’re too similar.” Oh my…
Despite the trademark issues, Abercrombie also believes that producing the shirts in question is actually protected under a law that “allows parody as part of free speech.” Not only that they were meant to be a joke and The Situation should get a sense of humor! The Situation has yet to comment on Abercrombie’s claims.
In other Jersey Shore news Snooki has been on a diet! And girl looks good! Revealing her new bikini body on Twitter, Snooki has been dieting and exercising diligently — and it has paid off. “So happy I’m at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can’t wait to tone up hardcore,” Snooki tweeted. And to complete her total transformation, Snooki asked Santa for a pair of “knockers” like JWoww‘s! Photos of a bikini clad Snooki are below.

DOES THE SITUATION HAVE A CASE AGAINST ABERCROMBIE & FITCH? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SNOOKI’S NEW BODY?

JWoww a.k.a. Jenni Farley is known for her over-the-top sex appeal, but in a recent Maxim spread she looks equal parts gaunt, exhausted, and old — was this supposed to appeal to the vampire lovers amongst us? Basically the cover is a hot stinking mess of ugly. Where’s the Photoshop when you need it!?
JWoww was so excited to land the cover of the infamous mag she claimed to have “cried” when she learned the news, but I’m wondering if she cried when she saw the pictures! Yikes!
Fans of JWoww are concerned that the booby Jersey Shore beauty, who has become somewhat of the surprising voice of reason amongst the other cray-cray messes she shares a home with, looked well, not quite herself save for the über cleavage.
Talking to Maxim, JWoww dishes on last season’s Italian fiasco adventure, Jersey Shore’s upcoming season and how to girl fight like a pro! “It was insane,” she says about last season’s trip to Italy. “I’m glad we’re going back to the Shore now, because Italy was hard.”
“Even rewatching it is pretty intense! It’s very emotional, and I was there and lived it. But we’re fine now, and that’s the best thing about us,” JWoww says of the extreme filming situation. “We watch it together and laugh at what we went through.”
“We definitely had to rely on each other, which made our relationships stronger, but also made us more sick of each other. Temperatures were running high. People were fighting. Heads were hitting walls.”
Even worse than the cast-wide drama was the lack of available GTL solutions! “There was no tanning situation,” JWoww laments. “I opened JWoww’s Tanning Salon and was spraying everyone myself just to get by. When we got back to Jersey, we kind of OD’d on the tanning. We all burned our asses off pretty bad.”
But Italy wasn’t all bad. There were some amazing adventures the castmates experienced together. “Italy was an especially amazing place for me, because I was an art history student. And besides the statues, I got to see the streets where, like, da Vinci and Michelangelo lived.”
While JWoww is glad to be back in Seaside Heights for the upcoming season, Italy isn’t over yet! “A lot of the drama that came from Italy has to get finished. So you’ll see that.” If MTV fears fans may tire of the same old drama, Jenni disagrees. “You could put us anywhere, and we’d make a great show.”
Fans can expect more of the same that made the cast famous in the first place. “We’re back at the T-shirt store and living in the same house,” Jenni explains. “We appreciate it more because Italy was so different. We jumped in headfirst.” Despite her excitement over the gang getting back to their old antics, JWoww thinks she’s definitely grown up over four seasons. “I was in a bad relationship during the first two seasons, so I took that out on people I shouldn’t have. I was definitely more of a bitch. ” And now, she feels more like “the mom” of the house.
She may have cooled it in the bitch department, but JWoww can still throw down. Her advice for guidettes in drama? “Pull your hair back. You don’t want some bitch yanking on your hair.”
As for what’s next? “Me and Snooki just started filming a spin-off. I hope we go on a road trip,” she shares. Oh boy…
Now onto those so-called sexy shots! Is JWoww sick? Hungover? I think it’s just the result of some bad, bad make up and terrible lighting making her look washed out and flat. That said for a men’s magazine who wants to sell sex, it’s not very appealing. You can view JWoww’s photoshoot below. Maybe they were going for an artistic vibe…
JWoww has faced accusations of plastic surgery in the past but brushed it off as weight loss, which could explain the gaunt facial expression. After JWoww posted samples of the shot on her Facebook page, some fans reacted negatively with one accusing her of looking “plastic.” And another fan chastising her for her “new” look: “STOP having messing up your face!!!! You looked so good before it all !!!!!”
“Fame got to her head. Be original Jwow.. How more plastic can you get??” a different fan lambasted. Not everyone thought she looked like a Twilight extra, many fans thought she looked hot no matter what!
And yesterday on The Wendy Williams Show, JWoww again denied plastic surgery! “They say I got my cheeks done, they say I got my nose, my chin. I just lost 15 pounds, and it was all in my face and neck,” she asserts. “That’s what was insulting to me, because I was like, ‘What did my nose look like 15 pounds ago?'”

In the latest incident RadarOnline is reporting that Amber was caught instigating a fight and scrapping with a woman at an Indiana IHOP last month. All class, no trash there! “She was drunk, and there was another girl in the restaurant who had been drinking too and apparently said something about Amber to her friend,” a source revealed to Star magazine.
“Amber instigated the fight,” the source adds. “She told the girl, ‘You don’t know anything about me! I’m gonna whup your ass!’ They just attacked each other.” In the video, Amber is seen wearing a white t-shirt and flailing her arms in the air before she straight up charges the woman. A photo of an irate Amber during the incident is below.
“There were a couple punches thrown and hair pulling, then they were separated,” the witness reports. No word if charges were filed or not, but I imagine they were asked to leave the restaurant…
Amber has announced that her often erratic behavior can partially be explained by bipolar disorder, which she was diagnosed with three years ago.
Speaking to E! News, Amber opened up about her diagnosis and how it affects her life. “I struggle with it. I hate it. I grieve over it,” she shares. “When I went to rehab for two months, they diagnosed me with dissociative disorder too, which makes me black out. People don’t understand what it’s like.”
Despite the struggles, Amber reveals things are looking up for her in life (really? see above?) as she now has a new boyfriend, Mike who she adores. “He’s a gorgeous man. We haven’t spent a day apart since we met,” she says.
“I always knew I wouldn’t be with [baby daddy] Gary for the long term,” Amber confesses. “But with Mike, I know he’s the one. We never fight. He balances me out.” The couple has been seeing each other for about a month.
And speaking about the Nov 18 dispute at IHOP, Amber insists she did not start the fight! “Yes, we did go have a couple of drinks,” she admitted, saying she was with her new boyfriend Mike. “But I was not drunk. We were sitting by ourselves, laughing and talking and my legs were up on his, just having a good time. Suddenly, I hear this couple make these racist comments.”
“I looked over and said, ‘Excuse me, but why are you starting drama? Please do everyone a favor and keep your comments to yourself,'” adding that the comments persisted. “So that’s when I got up and told her to shut her f–king mouth.”
Amber explains she hates being approached in public because she is often made fun of based on what audiences see on TV.
“I’m sick and tired of people bashing me every time I leave my house,” she snapped. “When I go out, I mind my own business, but people try to fight me and get me going because I guess they think I’m most famous for fighting Gary,” Amber laments.
“I get picked on every time I go out in public. I just want to be a normal 21-year-old. I do my duties, I take care of my child. Yes, I did hit Gary, and what people saw was an angry Amber who reacted to the father of her child telling her he had cheated on her.”
“People pick on me just to see if I’ll fight them. They think I’m this hard person, but I’m not! I’m a good person. I love my friends. I love people… I just want people to know that people change. I’m doing really well. I’m happy. Yes, I am on an MTV show, but I deserve a normal life, too. People need to realize that the show, Teen Mom, is on TV just to help others not make the same mistakes. That’s it.”
DO YOU BELIEVE AMBER WAS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE FIGHT? THOUGHTS ON AMBER’S INTERVIEW? ARE YOU SURPRISED BY THE INFORMATION SHE REVEALED?
Jersday will soon be back for all you Jersey Shore lovers! Also back? Seaside Heights as the Guids return to their roots on the infamous Jersey Shore. <fist pump>! Snooki is calling it “the best time of my life.” I’m calling it ca-ca-ca-caraaazeee! Oh and bloody and boozey and bronzey.
In the fifth season the entire cast returns and things get even more risqué as the sneak peak features a drunken and delushous Snooki taking a pee someplace that’s usually reserved for the family pet. Vinny Guadagnino apparently has enough as he vacates the house. “This is real. This is a reality right here. Vinny’s out of here,” Pauly D declares. The trailer promises many drunken nights, many bar fights, many pranks, many grenades and much ado about everything. Oh, and The Situation is bleeding.
The Situation and Snooki will continue to go at it, and this time Mike is also targeting the pouflette’s then boyfriend Jionni LaValle and promising to disclose a secret. Uh oh! Deena Cortese swears that the cast is more like “brothers and sisters” and the bickering never lasts long. “But you’ll see, we had a lot of fun in Jersey; we had so much fun. We were home, we were comfortable.”
“We’re back in our habitat and I’m ready to tear the speakers off this joint,” The Situation promises. Oh, you know you can’t wait! Check out the sneak peak below!
Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, January 5, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Get your cocktails ready!

Teen Mom 2 premieres tonight on MTV and for some of the ladies it’s a season filled with drama, heartbreak and tough choices as their babies become toddlers.
RadarOnline is reporting that we will get a birds-eye glimpse of Leah Messer‘s marital issues, particularly that Leah feels trapped at home taking care of her twin daughters while her husband, Corey Simms, works long hours. Leah craves some independence and a job of her own leading to some unfortunate situations, but hey when you have children someone has to take care of them!
Chelsea Houska completes the GED this season, taking the first steps towards creating a more positive future for her daughter, but finding time to study while caring for a baby is another story all together. Also distracting her: she can’t get over Aubree’s father, Adam, who remains disconnected to her and his daughter.
Kailyn Lowry is struggling to balance work and school and the 50/50 split custody agreement she has with her son’s father, Jo Rivera. “It takes a lot to co-parent, but we’re trying to be as civil as possible,” Kailyn told Star earlier this year about their situation. “Our relationship is a roller coaster. There’s always a calm before the storm.” It seems like things are going pretty well for Kailyn, except for the rumors that she may have cheated on her current boyfriend, Jordan with her old one!
Despite critics of the show claiming that MTV is glorifying teen parenting by making celebrities out of the teen moms, Kailyn feels that’s not true at all! “It’s not glamorous in any way,” she insists. “If they actually pay attention, they’ll see that one of us is always crying and going through something.”
“I’m kind of like walking birth control for them!” she adds, saying that her friends have definitely thought about preventing pregnancy after seeing her struggle. “At least someone’s benefiting from it.”
And finally, Janelle. Oh, Janelle. Janelle and her mother Barbara Evans are at it again over her unhealthy relationship with on and off boyfriend Kieffer Delp, Janelle focusing on her son, and getting her life back on track. While Barbara clearly loves both her daughter and her gradnson her methods are a little… well, crazy!
MTV offers a glimpse of what viewers can expect to see this season and it’s not pretty, as Janelle and Barbara get into a violent altercation over Janelle sneaking around to see the jobless, law disregarding Kieffer. Barbara doesn’t mince words, telling her daughter: “That’s why you never go anywhere in life.” Tough love, anyone? A clip of the incident is below.
Teen Mom 2 premieres tonight at 10/9c on MTV.

Is he or isn’t he? Broke, that is because a new report is stating that Mike “The Situation” Sorentino has blown millions of dollars ($10 million to be exact) living the lavish lifestyle of an A-List celeb and now has nothing left!
And that lawsuit The Situation recently filed against clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch for approximately $4 million in royalties and damages? It’s possibly because he needs the money!
In Touch Weekly is reporting that theJersey Shore star’s spending habits rival none other than Kate Gosselin’s – except he doesn’t appear to use coupons. Despite netting over $5M in revenue in 2010 alone from “appearance fees, endorsement deals with Vitaminwater and Reebok, his own fitness video, a “GTL’ app, a rap song and a book deal”, a former friend of The Situation is reporting that he has blown all of it!
So what has he been spending on? Luxury cars, several Rolex watches and diamond chains, plus not one but TWO Bentleys! Even worse, The Situation, whose “big head and cruel lies have left him without a friend in the world” is now paying his brother Marc and several former friends to follow him around constantly acting like his entourage! “He’s so cocky, he thinks he can spend like an A-lister,” the former buddy explains.
“He has nothing left,” the source reveals. “He won’t stop spending money.” And the constant income stream may be drying up soon as the mag suspects The Situation’s popularity is “plummeting.” “No one is paying him for appearances anymore,” the friend continues. Even worse for The Situation, the spin-off show he has in the works isn’t taking off! “Forget his Ferrari, he’ll be back in a crappy car before he knows it,” his former friend concludes. This sounds a bit like sour grapes to me…
Well, The Situation is calling all of these allegations preposterous. Speaking to In Touch, he claims it’s all lies! “I haven’t wasted my money,” he insists.
“I know that there’s a beginning and an end to everything. I’m very conscious of that, so I save my money,” he explains. “Any of those crazy gifts that I have that people hear about — the Ferraris and Lambos and all that I have — those things were either gifted or came from an endorsement.”
As for the speculation that he won’t be earning big in the future– nonsense! The Corporation (yes, The Situation has his own company apparently) has a lot of big deals in the works! “I’m looking towards the long-term and the future; I do own percentages of most of the companies I’m a part of,” Mike describes. “My vodka line, Devotion Vodka, the first protein-infused vodka, is doing awesome. I have a tuxedo line with FLOW Formal, and there should be a Situation ringtone coming out soon.”
In other Jersey Shore news poor cheating Ronnie Ortiz-Magro still pines for his ex-Sammi Giancola following their latest break up! My how the tables have turned! Sources report to HollywoodLife that Ronnie was seen in a club “especially drunk but was visibly depressed.”
“He had tons of girls trying to get all over him but he refused all advances and everyone was saying that he missed Sammi,” the source recounts. “He refused to hook up with anyone!” Did someone call the paramedics?
Things are very different for Sammi, who doesn’t seem to miss Ronnie at all! “She’s doing great! She’s really focused on herself and her career outside of Jersey Shore,” a different insider explains. “She has a new fragrance coming out and a men’s fragrance. She’s doing her right now and staying out of the drama.” Oh, please let this be the official, official end of Ronnie and Sammi!

Even though the cameras have stopped rolling the ladies of MTV’s Teen Mom franchise continue to keep our interest piqued with their crazy drama and latest schemes!
Maci Bookout just can’t make up her mind — Ryan or Kyle, Kyle or Ryan, Ryan or Kyle… Despite splitting from son Bentley’s father, ex-boyfriend Ryan Edwards, and moving on with live-in love Kyle King, Maci just can’t seem to move on! “Maci clearly still has feelings for Ryan,” a source reveals to Star Magazine. “And Kyle can’t be too happy about it.”
Maci insists she is over her ex and has previously stated: “I want him to be happy because he excels when he’s happy.” But she seems to have changed her opinion now that Ryan is talking marriage with his new girlfriend, bikini model, Dalis Connell! Perhaps Maci only wants Ryan to be happy with her! Conflict of Interests alert!
“Maci has been pretty jealous,” alleges a source that purports to be close to both couples. “Dalis feels like it could be because she and Ryan may get married before Maci does or maybe because Maci is not getting Ryan’s attention anymore.” They should just have a double wedding and call it a day.
Regardless of what Maci thinks Ryan and Dalis are determined to make their relationship work. “Their relationship is definitely true love,” the source explains. “They’re completely supportive of each other.”
In other Teen Mama drama, Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry is pulling a Toddlers In Tiaras by having her two-year-old son, Isaac model in the clothing line she created for him just in time for the premiere of Teen Mom 2!
Yes, Kailyn is now a children’s clothing designer at the helm of the Isaac Elliott Collection by Little Miss Cupcake, a line of toddler and baby formal wear. Photos of Isaac modeling some of the wear is below. Photos of the new collection are below!
Kailyn plans to use sales of her clothing as extra money while she earns her Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work and is apparently getting a lot of positive feedback over the collection!
“I’m overwhelmed with all the sweet things people have been saying,” she said on Twitter today. “Thank you all for the support. Isaac & I love you all. :o)” Good for you Kailyn – keep up the good work!

Well, Abercrombie & Fitch you can’t have it both ways! You’re either with The Situation or you’re against him!
A few months back Abercrombie & Fitch publicly offered the GTL-lovin’ Situation money to stop wearing their clothes; issuing a press release claiming his affiliation with the company was bad for business and could do “significant damage” to their brand after Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was photographed wearing it while filming Jersey Shore.
Then, the company followed up by creating t-shirts that clearly infringed on the skankerific star’s trademarks! Yes – Abercrombie & Fitch began selling shirts on their website emblazoned with “The Fitchuation” and GTL-You Know The Deal” Hmmm… that is oddly similar; shockingly so – I wonder where on earth they got the idea for “The Fitchuation”? Photos of the t-shirts in question are below. Now the shunned Situation is fighting back in court!
The Situation is asserting that despite Abercrombie advertising that he was offered a substantial amount dough if he gave up the brand, he was never actually offered that money at all and he is accusing the company of using him as a “marketing ploy” in the hopes to “draw attention to Abercrombie’s fashion line.”
And from now on, GTL officially stands for Gym, Tan, Lawsuit because The Situation is suing the company for violating his “trademarked slogans without permission,” claiming the t-shirts clearly infringe on his “trademarked Jersey Shore references.” Which, after all, is the nonsense that made him famous!
The lawsuit filed in Federal Court in Florida this Tuesday alleges Abercrombie “embarked on a worldwide advertising campaign using Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness to create brand awareness for its products by falsely claiming that [the company] had offered money to Sorrentino if he would stop wearing Defendant’s goods.”
Through his lawyers, The Situation contends that as a result of A&F’s “publicity campaign” they “profited off the use of a false affiliation with Sorrentino.” The suit also proclaims the retailer “wrongly used Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness for advertising purposes in violation of applicable law.” Oops — publicity stunt gone wrong A&F!
As a result of Abercrombie & Fitches’ blatant copying remarkably coincidental borrowing effort, The Situation is asking for a trial by jury, $1M in royalty payments and $3M in damages. Hey – according to Snooki he needs the money…
