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.
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!

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATIONS FINANCIAL SITUATION? DO YOU THINK HE IS BROKE OR SMARTER THAN HE LOOKS? DO YOU BELIEVE RONNIE AND SAMMI ARE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?
Jersey Shore fans were not shocked to hear that on-again off-again coupleRonnie Magro and Sammi Giancola broke up again recently, but they might however be surprised at the reason for the break up!
According to TheDirty.com, the same site that broke the recent Ashton Kutcher cheating scandal, Ronnie not only cheated on Sammi but he did it with another reality star!
The site is reporting that Ronnie hooked up with Bad Girls Club season 5 alum Morgan Brittany Osman! If you recall, Morgan made her mark on BGC by getting kicked off during the first episode of her season.
As for what happened between Ronnie and Morgan, “model” Arian Marie, a friend of Morgan’s, tells TheDirty site that Ronnie and Morgan first had sex in Florida in mid September. The two then met up again a week later at a club in Las Vegas. Arian says Ronnie disrespected her by not letting her sit at his table with him and Morgan so she decided to put him on blast on twitter.
Arian tweeted to Sammi on September 25: “So @MTVsammi I thought u should kno that @mtvronnie was f***ing my girl @Morganbritt724 last weekend n now they r at wet. Sorry.”
Ronnie then blew his fuse, like any normal guy would after just being outed to his girlfriend as a scumbag cheater, by making a series of nasty tweets about Arian, all of which he later deleted.
Next thing we know, Sammi stopped following Ronnie on twitter and Ronnie was announcing the two had broken up last week. Here’s to hoping it’s for good this time!
While Sammi has yet to officially comment on the break up, she did tweet – “Thank u to all my fans and supporters u all are amazing! Love u! Xoxo”
As for Morgan, she is keeping mum on the issue though theDirty sites states she “is not proud of her actions.” More photos of Morgan below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE LATEST? SURPRISED RONNIE CHEATED? DO YOU THINK THEY’RE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?
On last night’s Jersey Shore, there was a guido/gorilla break up of juicehead proportions. Kuckas were flashed, tears were shed, screams were heard ’round Italia. It was pretty epic.
We rejoin the meatballs post-wreck. If Snooki thinks that this is the worst thing to happen to her while she’s in Italy, she needs only to wait a few days! Snooki gets a breathalyzer, and because she doesn’t have her license, she and Deena are being carted off by the Italian police. The guys arrive with her license just in time to see the house car being towed. The boys spend two hours in the waiting room at the station before they are able to free the meatballs.
Once home, Snooki calls Jionni to tell him of her recent escapades. Jionni tells her that Roger can’t come any more because he has to work. Snooki relays the news to JWoww, and she calls Roger very upset. It seems Roger’s leave from work has been denied. I think there has to be more to it, but I want to like the Roger I met at the shore.

Jersey Shore in all its trashy glory is returning; so hold onto your pouf and get ready to move to Florence, Italy for the Season 4 Premiere!
So what can you expect from this season’s Italian adventure? According to Executive Producer, SallyAnn Salsano: “The dynamic is supercrazy and explosive and yet more caring.” SallyAnn also relays being thousands of miles away from real friends and family, the cast had to rely on each other for support instead of bickering constantly!
While one might expect the Guidos and Guidettes to take to Italy like ducks to water, apparently the cast members had a difficult time adjusting to the lack of available facilities, i.e. GTL: We rarely made it to the gym,” says Vinny. “That’s unheard of for us. But it’s not really a big thing there. And these little weird streets that were built in the 1000s… going to the laundromat, you have to haul your luggage through friggin’ Italian villages. That made us stop doing certain things in our routine.”
The Guidettes also had some difficulty with Italian architecture, as apparently stripper shoes are not compatible with cobblestones, explains Sammi: The worst thing was the cobblestone roads and walking in heels. I had to buy a lot of flats, which I would probably never wear in Jersey.”
Despite the difficult surroundings, the cast still made sure to bring the drama to the max! And while no one is revealing the biggest conflict – apparently the Guidos were the source of most of the conflicts, without Angelina there to annoy JWoww, who reveals: “They were doing the catfighting.” Pauly D concurs: “You’ll be surprised to see the drama that sparks this year.”
There was one routine they didn’t have to give up, besides fighting: partying! “The guys, we went hard in Italy. There were a lot of entertaining nights,” relays Ronnie.
“Jersey girls still found us,” says Pauly D. And lucky for them “American college students are far easier to get home at night than Italian girls,” says Salsano. Well, she has a job I certainly don’t envy!
In other Jersey Shore news, it appears filming for Season 5, the last and final season, has already wrapped! Wow – these Guids move fast in more ways than one! To celebrate the end of an era, Snooki got her nose pierced! A picture of the pierced Snooki is below!
The cast also bid farewell to the very brave Shore Store, which was ballsy enough to employ them during their time on the Jersey Shore. After bidding farewell, The Guidettes decided to hang out on the roof one final time. I wonder what they’ll all be up to next?
Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, 8/4 at 10/9c on MTV. A preview of the upcoming season is below!
With less than a month until the August 4 premiere, MTV has released the official season 4 cast photo of the Jersey Shore cast!
In the above shot, the cast is all glammed-up for a late-night run through the streets of Florence, Italy where they filmed the fourth season from May to June.
As reported, the cast only got a one week break before they began filming the fifth season back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey late last month. The new season will debut Aug. 4 on MTV at 10/9c.
In other Shore news, after almost losing two cast members in a span of one week, TMZ is now reporting MTV has laid down the law!
According to TMZ, MTV has now instituted a zero tolerance policy for future cast runaways. Sources close to production reveal the network is very serious this time stating that if another cast member tries to walk off the show… that person will be fired, and the remainder of his or her contract will be terminated. No exceptions.
This is apparently a power play by the network to reassert some authority after two cast members nearly bolted in the same week. Vinny Guadagnino actually left the show for a week after complaining of being “burned out” only to return a week later. While Vinny was gone, The Situation also threatened to quit the show but returned hours later.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE CAST PHOTO & MTV THREATENING TO FIRE CAST MEMBERS IF THEY LEAVE THE SHOW?
According to a new report, that will soon be the case with the Jersey Shore cast. In the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, an insider reveals MTV is planning to replace the entire cast once the fifth season is over.
“After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them,” says an insider. The reason? It all comes down to money… of course.
See while the show is a mega hit for the MTV network, they are having to fork over millions to the cast members. A report that came out earlier this year revealed the core four of the group (Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and DJ Pauly D) were each earning $100,000 per episode for the fourth season. That amounts to over $1 mil each for the entire season.
Quite frankly, MTV feels the new stars will be “a lot cheaper” plus it also frees up the current gang to pursue their spinoffs. MTV has confirmed Snooki and JWoww have one in the works, as well as Pauly D and The Situation.
The source however promises the cast “will leave on a high note!” The cast departed Italy last Saturday as filming for season 4 ended and season 5 is scheduled to begin filming any day now in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? IS REPLACING THE CAST A GOOD IDEA?
The same night Ronnieand Sammiwere photographed holdings hands in the streets of Florence, Italy, before getting into a reported fight inside of a club later that night, Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fight, except it was a violent fist fight!
The above photos were taken yesterday (the day after the fight) as both Ronnie and The Situation returned back home. The Sitch returned home after a visit to the hospital, while Ronnie can be seen applying bandages to his fist.
In the pic above, The Sitch can be seen sporting cuts and in another photo by a different photo agency, he can be seen sporting a shiner courtesy of Ronnie. As for Ronnie’s injuries, his fist suffered some cuts and bruises.
According to TMZ, the fight took place Monday night, presumably inside the home the roomates share. While full details about the fight have yet to come out, what is certain is that sources tell TMZ it all began with a blowout between Ronnie and Sammi… of course.
And it seems the roomates are all Team Ronnie as Ronnie has since been photographed with most of them out and about since the incident while The Situation has yet to be seen in public since the above picture was taken.
A close up of Ronnie’s fist is below. You know what they say, you can take the kids out of the Jersey Shore but…

TELL US: THE SITUATION’S ASS KICKING – HE HAD IT COMING? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR HIM?
UPDATE – TMZ is reporting that Ronnie and The Situation have buried the hatchet and are back to being friends again. The two reportedly had a long talk following their fight.
As for what caused the fight, sources say after a heated argument with Sammi on Monday night, Ronnie returned home and “turned his anger towards Mike.” He started talking smack about The Sitch’s family causing Mike to snap and hence the fight. The two fought briefly before it was “quickly broken up.” Ronnie then decided to blow off some steam by punching a wall, which tore up his knuckles.
