Snooki

While New Jersey Governor Chris Christie received some backlash weeks ago for blocking a $420,000 tax credit that was intended for MTV hit show Jersey Shore, it turns out he has the full support of the state of Jersey after all!

According to new polls, New Jersey residents not only support Gov. Christie’s decision but they also feel the show is very bad for their state!

“Garden State voters agree overwhelmingly with Gov. Chris Christie’s decision to slam the door on ‘Snooki,’ ‘The Situation’ and the rest of the ‘Jersey Shore’ crew,” said Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute which conducted the polls.

An overwhelming nearly 70 percent of voters polled think the show is bad for the state, while 71 percent agree with Christie’s decision to veto the tax credit citing the state should not pay $420,000 for a show that “perpetuates misconceptions about the state and its citizens.” Ouch!

Fortunately for the Jersey Shore gang, they do have an usual fan in former American Idol judge/current American Idol X-Factor judge Simon Cowell! But seriously American Idol and X-Factor are the same show no?

“I thought [Jersey Shore] was genius, absolute genius,” said Simon to MTV this week. “And whether you like the show or not, these kids are suddenly big, big stars. They just make me laugh.” No word yet on whether Simon is laughing at the cast or with them!

Simon goes on to add that Snooki has in fact inspired him on X-Factor. “Yeah, so that was the reason why I came to New Jersey: I wanted to find the next Snooki,” he says. Oh that Simon, always tongue-in-cheek! He is joking right?

And finally, move over Jill Zarin Kelly Bensimon! There is a new “celebrity” cyber-bullying victim!

While bullying and cyber-bullying has become a hot topic and a serious issue in recent times, Vinny Guadagnino is now revealing his sad tale of cyber-bullying at the hands of some of his 2 million twitter followers! And yes he has 2 mil followers on twitter. Apparently Vinny, who chose to put his life on national television, feels negative tweets constitute as “cyber-bullying.”

“I get cyber-bullied every single second of the day!” Vinny tells Life & Style. “Right now, if I go through my Twitter I guarantee that within two seconds I’ll find someone making fun of my friends and family and calling me the devil.”

Vinny goes on to add that being “cyber-bullied” is what encouraged him to join forces with MTV to help bring awareness to National Bullying Prevention month. “I want to get involved because I can relate,” he states. “This is about young people on social media and the different problems they have. I’ve been there, and I’m still there.”

Allrighty. A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

TELL US – JERSEY SHORE RESIDENTS: ARE YOU ASHAMED OF THE JERSEY SHORE? DO YOU THINK SIMON WAS JOKING WITH HIS COMMENTS? IS VINNY A REAL VICTIM OF CYBER-BULLYING?

It’s Jersey Shore vs. Governor Chris Christie take two, as the New Jersey Governor recently blocked a $420,000 tax credit that was promised to the production company behind the MTV hit show.

Gov. Christie, an outspoken critic of the Jersey Shore, did not mince his words or feelings in explaining why he vetoed the credit. He stated that he was “duty-bound” to stop taxpayer money from going to “a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

While his reasons seem fair enough, Gov. Christie, who allowed tax credits for other TV shows and films to go forward, is now facing criticism from some who feel he went above and beyond by blocking this tax credit. A piece written by the NYDailyNews criticizes Christie for doing the same thing he attacks the show for — which is playing to the cheap seats.

The article states that while the Jersey Shore is indeed a trashy show, MTV spent $2.1 million filming in New Jersey and therefore deserved the $420,000 credit it applied for. The article adds that Christie’s decision could end up hurting NJ as companies thinking of filming in the state will now wonder if they could lose already-approved financial incentives because some politician “wants to score easy points.”

In other Shore news, Deena Cortese is now speaking out following the airing of the kiss seen around the world. One half member of ‘Team Meatballs’ explained her never-ending makeout session with Snooki during an appearance on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno.

Deena stated, “Me and [Snooki] make out when we’re drunk sometimes, it happens! Team meatballs! Meatball power! It was kind of stupid. The roommates were all being so lame and judgmental when they have seen it happen before! It was like, ‘why are you surprised?’”

Deena went on to add that another explanation for the makeout session was also the lack of guys in Italy. “I felt very lonely in Italy. A lot of them had boyfriends and I was like the single girl having a good time,” said Deena. “It was hard to find guys out there because some of them didn’t speak English, some of them hooked up with their sisters! It was hard to communicate.”

And speaking of Snooki, she is also getting media attention after she was pictured above over the weekend during an event in Atlantic City. Many media outlets credited her with a drastic weight loss (not really seeing this) to which she credited the Zantrex weight loss pill. She has an endorsement deal with them. Snooki tweeted, “Glad to hear reports that say I look good =) but it’s not because of HCG! Thanks @Zantrex!”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore. On the 9th episode this season titled “Three men and a Snooki,” Snooki is devastated over her big fight with Jionni, and decides to take a break from the relationship while also turning to drinking. Mike thinks it’s finally his chance to win her over, but it’s someone else who ends up comforting her. Meanwhile, Deena has a pregnancy scare.

The episode airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

And as for Snooki and boyfriend Jionniiiiii, they are still together! The Snooks tweeted the below photo of the two just hours ago with the caption “Always.”

Poor Kim Kardashian, it seems nothing is going right for the beleaguered star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians! Her marriage to Kris Humphries is reportedly on the rocks and her family hates her hubby anyways, her mother Kris Jenner pimps her out mercilessly for a measly 10%, her brother Rob Kardashian can’t dance, and now she’s been voted “Most Annoying Celebrity of 2011!”

In an annual Pop Culture Poll conducted by Parade and Yahoo! OMG!, Kim received 29% of the vote to beat out even Charle Sheen as the most annoying celeb of the past year! Wow – um… that sucks, but why am I not surprised?

But don’t feel too badly for Kimmie as she is in good company! Joining her on the annoying list are a few more reality stars, most notably Jersey Shore star Snooki who garnered 21% of the votes! Donald Trump also made the list with 5% of the votes.

And the news for Kimmie gets even worse as Vivid Entertainment’s Steve Hirsch tells TMZ the company REJECTED an offer to sell her sex tape! “We were offered $20 million for the Kim tape but have decided that we are going to hang on to it … for now.” Which means it’s still available for your viewing pleasure, if you are into that sort of thing.

Days after Kimmie tied the knot, TMZ broke the news that someone was actively trying to take the tape off the market. Many of course suspected it was Kimmie herself, something that now appears not to be the case.

Mr. Hirsch does tell TMZ that his reasons for rejecting the sale were honorable, all things considered. “Although the offer that we ultimately received was substantial,” he explains quelling suspicious that the offer price wasn’t as high as the 30M he was after. “When I realized that it wasn’t Kim it became less appealing. Kim is a superstar and if it were to be sold, it should be to her.”

If Kim keeps annoying the public it seems like her economic potential to earn enough dough to get that tape off the market is going to dry up soon! I’m frankly shocked that Kim wasn’t the prospective buyer – maybe she was hiring someone else to try and buy the tape for her?

Thoughts on the poll? Do you agree that Kim is the “Most Annoying Celebrity of 2011”? Are you surprised Kim was not the person trying to buy the Kim K sex tape?

It was a classic case of he-said she-said on this season of the Jersey Shore as Mike The Situation accused Snooki of hooking up with him and cheating on her boyfriend.

During earlier episodes this season, Mike, 29, dropped the bomb when he also revealed he had developed feelings for the Snooks, 23. The Snooks however unconvincingly protested too much flew into a rage and denied Mike’s claims. Snooki also informed her beau Jionni LaVelle of Mike’s claims though she still maintained she never cheated.

Fast forward to today and UsWeekly is reporting Snooki’s castmates, including her BFF JWoww, no longer believe her! The report states they actually believe Mike’s version of events over hers.

The reunion for season 4 was taped on August 31, and the hook-up was a huge topic. “When the hookup was brought up during the reunion show, nobody sided with her,” a witness at the taping revealed. “Everyone believed Mike!” added the source.

A report by Star magazine confirms UsWeekly’s report stating that though the cast was upset with Mike at the beginning of the reunion taping in Los Angeles, by the end of the show, they were believing his claims “because Snooki was just out of control, denying it too much.”

The set insider adds that Snooki also showed up drunk to the reunion (Seriously, this girl has a drinking problem no?) and continued drinking through out. “It was only 11 a.m., and she was a mess!” the insider reveals. “She was slurring her words and struggling to keep her head up straight. There was no doubt she was drunk.”

Producers reportedly struggled to keep the Snooks in check backstage. Yikes.

A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.

You can thank MTV for that lovely and not at all offense reference to Italian food and lesbians. Always keeping it classy, the gang on last night’s Jersey Shore takes a road trip to the Italian shore. Basically the entire cast plays supporting characters, while the stars of the porn episode are everyone’s favorite drunken meatballs, Snooki and Deena.

Ronnie, Snooki and Jenni head to work at the pizza parlor. JWoww and Rawn try to apologize for the previous night’s intervention while still insisting that Snooki deserves to enjoy her time in Italy. Ronnie’s job is yelling at potential patrons from the sidewalk with a megaphone. Their boss gives them a break to go shopping for their beach trip to Vertronni. Seriously, where? I can’t understand what they are saying.

Self proclaimed Jersey Shore meatball Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is showing off her new ink!

The MTV reality star showed off her new tattoo over the weekend on twitter! “MY NEW TAT <3 badass,” tweeted the Snooks along with a photo of new work of art.

Snooki’s new tat appears to be a picture of a crown with a pink bow underneath. However, this isn’t the guidette’s first tattoo as she also has the phrase ‘La Familia’ tatted on her back. More photos of Snooki’s new dumb tattoo below!

Meanwhile, Snooki, 23, also tweeted hours ago about Real Housewives of New Jersey star Teresa Giudice.

She wrote, “I love Teresa from housewives even tho she did say rude things about me . Her kids are adorable. #myfuturekids.” Snooki is referring to Teresa’s previous comments in which the pot she bashed the Jersey Shore cast and stated she wouldn’t want her daughters to grow up to be like them.

Back in January, Teresa stated, “No, I don’t want them to act like the Jersey Shore kids… I hear that they sleep around. I don’t want my daughters sleeping around.” Ouch!

In a new interview with In Touch Weekly, Jersey Shore star JWoww, 25, is finally opening up about the speculation that she got some work done on her face.

Despite sporting what appears to be a much different look on the new season of the MTV hit show, JWoww aka Jenni Farley is denying she got any new procedures done.

“People are saying I got cheek implants, my chin shaved down and a nose job,” she tells In Touch, citing that weight loss is to blame for her drastic new look. “I lost 15 pounds and my cheeks have become more defined. I highlight my cheeks instead of putting bronzer on them,” she added. “If I got work done, I would be open to talking about it; I didn’t,” claims JWoww before going on to admit she does have a boob job and is open to Botox in the future.

“I have cellulite,” confesses JWoww, who hasn’t ruled out the possibility of getting plastic surgery down the road. “I’ll probably get Botox by the time I’m 30, and have my breast implants redone in a few years after I’ve had kids,” she says. Did she or didn’t she? We’ll let you be the judge as a before and after photo of her is below.

Meanwhile, JWoww’s costar and BFF Snooki is speaking out about Dancing With The Stars. Despite reports that she had signed on to do the show, Snooki is not a part of the new season.

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Snooki claimed she was never asked to be on the show. “They never asked me, not once did they come up [to ask,]” said Snooki. “I feel like I’m too busy to do it [right now,] cause I have all my products coming out … [but] in the future, I definitely want to dance.”

It however appears Snooki is trying to take the high road unlike her costar DJ Pauly D who dissed the show. According to numerous reports, she was indeed asked but declined due to her busy schedule. Meaning she stands to make more money in the next 2 months by doing club appearances rather than being tied down to the show.

TELL US – YOU BUYING JWOWW’S STORY? DO YOU BELIEVE SHE DIDN’T DO ANYTHING TO HER FACE?

After going from a nobody to a fairly famous reality star in a span of less than 2 years, it appears Jersey Shore star DJ Pauly D now feels he is really famous!

Just how famous you ask? Well according to him, too famous to do Dancing With The Stars! Wowzers. The Huffington Post interviewed Pauly D, during which he pretty much dissed the ABC hit show, implying it is for has-beens. He does have a point no?

Citing that he has a hot career as a DJ, which brings him over $10,000 per gig, Pauly D, 31, (yes he’s really 31-years-old) stated: “I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips.” Ouch.

The topic then turned to his costar Snooki and the talks that she had signed on to do the show. “I texted her congratulations about doing ‘Dancing,’ but she texted back ‘am I?’” Pauly D revealed.

In fact, new reports are now stating the Snooks, 23, will NOT be appearing on the show after TMZ prematurely confirmed she had signed on for the new season.

There had been rumors that Snooki wanted more money, but a report by the Hollywood Life blog states the Snooks was simply too busy to do the show. Not sure how this bodes for the so called celebs on the show if Snooki has a busier career than they do.

“They have finalized this seasons cast and Snooki will unfortunately not be doing this season of Dancing With The Stars,”a source stated. “There is no drama between producers and Snooki. She just won’t be available to appear on the show. There is still hope they can get her in a future season though.”

A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
