Oh, Pauly "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio…have you been cheating on me? No? Well, you've been cheating on MTV, although I can't say I blame you. You were enticed by the dimples and flashy Kardashian representation that Ryan Seacrest provides. I don't think anyone will judge you.
The acronym creating, high hair wearing, "cabs are heeya" screaming star of Jersey Shore is getting a new show…and it's not on the network that made him an international reality star and a household name. That's right. He's potentially moving on to E! What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to hop to another channel for more money. I'm not hating, Pauly…I want you in my TV line-up regardless.
They’re baaack! The crazy kids of Jersey Shore are set to return to MTV on January 6 for their 3rd and most likely final season.
And for the first time on Monday night, MTV aired a 30 second trailer to promote the third season. In the preview clip, posted below, Vinny is shown engaging in a four-way kiss, the new cast member Deena Nicole Cortese is shown getting down and dirty, and it seems Jwoww and Sammi get into yet another physical fight.
Also shown is Snooki‘s now infamous drunken fiasco that ended in her being arrested. Based on the preview clip, the formula of drinking, fighting and fist pumping remains in full effect. Should be a hit! The last season of the show brought MTV it’s best ratings in a very long while. The show averaged over 5 million viewers per episode.
Season 3 premieres on Thursday, January 6, 2011 at 10/9c on MTV.
In other Shore news, TMZ is reporting that cast member Jenni Farley aka JWowwis being sued by her ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis, who has been featured on both seasons of the show.
Tom is alleging he served as JWoww’s business manager, helping her sign deals with MTV, nightclubs, a tanning lotion company and even a plastic surgeon. In court documents, Tom claims he was the one who negotiated her Jersey Shore deal of $17,500 per episode plus a $75k bonus “dependant on ratings at the end of the season.”
According to Tom, JWoww stiffed him and he now wants $350,000 to make things right. Sources close to JWoww however deny Tom’s claims, stating he did not negotiate her tanning or MTV contract and he was paid for the appearances he booked.
JWoww also fired off a letter to her ex a few weeks ago requesting he return the nude photos of her in his possession. The letter read, “It has come to [Jwoww's] attention that you may be in possession of certain photos of her that may be derogatory to her image and in violation of her contract with MTV.”
And the photo above is of the Jersey Shore cast with Barbara Walters as they earned a spot onBarbara Walters’annual list of the “10 Most Fascinating People.” The cast members gave Barbara a lesson in GTL — gym-tan-laundry — grenades,” and smooshing.”
