Those wild and crazy kids of the Jersey Shore are already stirring up some controversy in Italy though they have yet to arrive for the filming of their 4th season.

See while MTV confirmed earlier this year that season four of the super mega hit show will be filmed in Italy, the show had yet to actually air in the country. That all changed this week when the show made its debut on Italian television, and let’s just say the Italians are no fans. In fact, the cast is now on the receiving end of some major backlash.

“They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” wrote columnist Roberto Del Bove in Rome newspaper New Notzie.

It only gets worse as a preview of the show posted on an MTV Italia website drew some nastier comments.”When I see this, I wonder whether [Osama] Bin Laden had a point,” lamented one poster, going a bit overboard perhaps.

“Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity” is what was written about the show in another popular Rome newspaper, Corriere della Sera.

The Italians might be happy to know that only part of the fourth season will be filmed in Italy. This isn’t the first time the Jersey Shore clan has been criticized for their shenanigans as the show also drew major ire from Italian-American groups during their first season, leading to some boycotts by advertisers.

Love them or hate them, the show is definitely here to stay as the season 3 finale last week drew record ratings for MTV, with over 7.6 million viewers tuning in.

Speaking of season 4, RadarOnline is now reporting that there is a contract dispute brewing with some of the cast members. Apparently, cast members “Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and Pauly D have not finalized their contracts because they can’t agree on the amount.”

“As of last week Deena hadn’t signed her contract either but Ronnie, Sammi, and Vinny were done,” reveals a source, um does Deena not realize she’s very expendable?. “Time is short, everyone is getting concerned because they’re supposed to leave for Italy soon, I just hope they can settle it,” the source adds.

The cast also went through contract disputes last year as they went on a short strike before season three; eventually negotiating a 200% raise from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode.

And finally, the reunion show airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. We will revisit the top moments of the show with the cast and also find out why Sammi and Ronnie broke up again for the 2000th time back in January.

TELL US – THE ITALIANS, THEY HAVE A POINT NO? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION SHOW?

Months after it was first reported that Jersey Shore star Paul DelVecchio aka DJ Pauly D was getting his own spin-off show, MTV is now confirming the news.

Variety reports that the pilot for Pauly’s show has been shot by the same production company responsible for Jersey Shore.

“At the heart of ‘Jersey Shore’ is the unique and genuine cast, and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities,” MTV exec veep of programming and production head Chris Linn said. “We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore, and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.”

The show will reportedly follow Pauly D as his star rises on the DJ circuit, and he releases his first single with Universal Republic Records from the Jersey Shore soundtrack.

RadarOnline adds that the show is tentatively titled Pauly’s World, and will feature Pauly’s life on the road with some of his closest buddies. “The boys that Pauly hangs with are ‘Big Mike’ his road manager, Jerry his bodyguard, and Ryan – a buddy he grew up with, who has a really good business sense,” a source close to the show told Radar.

Snooki is also reportedly working on her own spin-off show.

In other Jersey news, the web is abuzz over Jwoww’s new look at a recent promotional appearance. While promoting natural body supplement ‘Ab Cuts by Revolution’ for GNC, Jwoww debuted a new mature classier look. A far cry for her previous trashy looks.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE JERSEY SHORE SPIN-OFFS? WILL YOU BE WATCHING? PLUS THOUGHTS ON JWOWW’S NEW LOOK?

UsWeekly magazine is confirming the news that Jersey Shore’s break out star Snooki is getting her own spinoff show!

Despite reports and rumors that Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, 22 would be doing a show with her BFF from the show, Jwoww, 25, UsWeekly is reporting that MTV only wanted the Snookster!

“Execs think a show focusing on Snooki will be a bigger hit, so they pushed JWoww out,” the insider tells Us though MTV is refusing to confirm the news. “We can’t confirm any new Jersey Shore–related programming at this time,” says a MTV rep.

This news follows the report that Pauly D will begin filming his own spinoff show for the MTV network any day now.

In the meantime, Snooki has other projects in the works including writing a book tentatively titled A Shore Thing, developing hair products and reportedly commanding $20,000 to walk a red carpet event.

TELL US – DO YOU THINK THE JERSEY SHORE SPINOFFS WILL BE A SUCCESS? WHAT WERE YOUR THOUGHTS ON LAST NIGHT’S EPISODE?

A not so shocking new report by RadarOnline reveals that Jersey Shore’s break out star, Snooki, was hospitalized for suspected alcohol poisoning.

According to Radar, the scary near death incident occurred back in May while the cast was still filming the second season of the hit show in Miami.

A source who was on the set at the time tells Radar the 4’9″ reality star “was so drunk that she had to be carried out of the nightclub ‘Dream’ by the show’s producers.” Snooki was reportedly rushed to a local Miami hospital where she was treated for the suspected alcohol poisoning.

Radar reports the show’s producers decided to leave the incident out of last week’s episode, as it actually occurred the night Jwoww’s boyfriend Tom Lippolis came to visit. This was the same night Snooki was shown playing with the couple’s feet before eventually going into Vinny‘s bed.

While MTV failed to comment on the story, the source adds that “Snooki was out of commission for about two days and was left in pain after undergoing the hospital treatment.”

In other Jersey Shore news, Radar is also reporting that DJ Pauly D is the first cast member to get his own solo spin-off show! The show, which will air on MTV, will reportedly follow the DJ as he travels the country and Canada spinning tunes.

“They have already chosen a name and of course it will be deejay-related,” a source tells Radar, adding that the show will begin filming next month.

Jersey Shore GQ Makeover

The fellas of Jersey Shore get unguidofied in the latest issue of GQ.

Since the Jersey Shore guys take a lot of pride in their GTL rituals aka Gym Tan Laundry, the folks at GQ decided to address the gym “situation” by providing them with some simplified sportswear.

Above is a after shot following the makeover for Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio, Mike “the Situation” Sorrentino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro, and Vinny Guadagnino. The guys also did a Q & A with GQ, excerpts below -

GQ: What about using personal trainers? Yes or no?
Vinny: I used to be a trainer, and 90 percent of the people who use trainers are women and old people. But it can be good—I used to train other trainers sometimes.
DJ Pauly D: Sometimes I look at the trainers at the gym, and I look better than them. I’m not gonna take advice from somebody who doesn’t look better than me, bro. Mike, I don’t really have a six-pack. Should I be crying in my beer about it?
The Situation: Nah. Be confident in what you got.

GQ: What’s the best body-related compliment you’ve gotten from a girl?
Vinny: I’m not that big next to these guys, but—
Ronnie: It’s more about the mind-body connection with Vinny.
The Situation: It’s more about the pushin’.

Snooki, 22, says she realizes she and The Situation are more popular than their co-stars.  “I know the others want the same opportunities that Mike and I get, but we don’t control those things,” she says. “The media isn’t asking for the others so they can’t really be mad at me.”

After acknowledging DJ Pauly D‘s rising stature as a DJ and Jenni “Jwoww” Farley‘s fashion line, Snooki adds, “I can understand why the others might be jealous. They aren’t doing anything, but they should still be happy for me.”

Snooki also gives her sob story touches on the pitfalls of fame.  “I miss my old life,” she sighs. “I miss being able to be around my family and at home. I miss going out with my friends and going out to a bar. I can’t do that anymore. When I try to do that, I get attacked by the fans.”

TMZ is confirming that a deal has finally been struck between the cast of Jersey Shore and MTV.

All the cast members are expected to return. According to TMZ, Vinny, Ronnie and JWoww accepted the $10,000 per episode offer. No word on if the other cast members will also be paid the same amount.

Though a deal has been agreed to in principle, lawyers for the cast are still trying to hammer out certain terms of the deal. Apparently, one of the main issues is how many paid club appearances the cast members will be able to do each week. Snooki, Pauly D and The Situation want the right to appear at as many as four clubs and other venues a week ..

As we reported earlier, some of the cast members are able to pull between $7,500 – $10,000 per club appearance.

UPDATE - A MTV Exec confirms the entire cast will be returning for a 2nd season and also reveals it will be filmed at a different location.

“Our audience has fallen in love with ‘Jersey Shore’ and its amazing cast who have really grown together as a family” said Tony DiSanto, President of Programming for MTV. “That bond gives the show its heart, and we’re thrilled to reunite these friends to bring fans more of what they love — laughs, love, drama and of course GTL.”
