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.
The new series will give fans an inside look into Pauly D’s life away from Seaside Heights, NJ, as cameras document his transition from world-famous housemate to world-class DJ, with his best friends from his home state of Rhode Island along for the ride.
The press release states “viewers will get to see Pauly D chase his dream as he signs a recording contract with rap icon 50 Cent’s G-Note Records, accompanies pop icon Britney Spears on her international “Femme Fatale” tour and tries to balance it all with the array of photo shoots, public appearances and media interviews that are now a part of his everyday life.”
Joining Pauly D on the show are his boys: Michael “Biggie” Morgan -a DJ who became best friends with Pauly D when they were DJs together at Club ULTRA in Rhode Island; Gerard “Big Jerry” Gialanella – the unofficial baby brother of Pauly D’s crew (and often the butt of their group’s jokes), who also serves as Pauly D’s personal security and a much-needed confidante; Ryan Labbe – Pauly D’s partner in crime who is quick to give him a reality check; and Jason “JROC” Craig – known in Las Vegas’ most elite circles as “Mr. Vegas,” and serves as Pauly D and Co.’s West Coast social liaison.
With those intros out-of-the-way, the trailer for Pauly’s show is below! The show seems like a bit of a snoozefest to me, but I’ll let you be the judge! The series debuts on MTV on March 29 at 10:30/9:30c.
Get ready for more T-shirt time, as MTV is confirming DJ Pauly D‘s spin off, The Pauly D Project, is about to come to a TV near you!
Not surprisingly, the show will have nothing to do with his Jersey-ness and everything to do with his music career. According to Zap2it, viewers will watch Pauly as he attempts to make it as a DJ, cutting a single with 50 Cent and touring as one of Britney Spears‘ opening acts! Say what?!
The show will also introduce us to Pauly’s longtime friends, from before the days of the Seaside Heights crew! Don’t worry – they still don’t have normal names, they respectively go by “Biggie” and “Big Jerry”!
The Pauly D Project premieres on MTV, March 29th.
Moving on to Snooki! Has the Guidette left her Jersey roots behind her for the big, bad city? Apparently so! The Jersey Shore‘s longtime nemesis New Jersey Governor Chris Christie continues to wage war against the be-drunken Shore rats, and this time he is claiming Snooki has jumped state!
Last week, Snooki innocently tweeted, “I will not be voting for Chris Christie. Love always, the “buffoons” from that degrading Jersey Shore show.” Snooki went on to call the Governor, “judgmental,” saying he had never even met her in person! Them’s was fightin’ words! Chris Christie has been combating the negative Jersey images taking over reality TV for the last few years, and Snooki’s tweet was in response to the Governor denying MTV a film tax credit because of the negative portrayals the show perpetuates.
And after Snooki’s little comment, the Gov. fired back, claiming she doesn’t even live in Jersey, so she that’s why she won’t be voting for him. Buuuurn! At the BioNJ dinner last Thursday, the Governor was asked about Snooki’s threat to give her vote to someone else, and Mr. Christie replied, “She lives in New York. She can’t vote for me.”
And he’s right, because Snooki actually resides in… wait for it… Poughkeepsie, New York! JWoww, seconded that she also wouldn’t vote for the Governor, who claims he is trying to clean up Jersey’s image by eradicating all the negative TV shows. “Me either! I will choose someone who appreciates what we did for jersey! Urs truly the degenerate,” JWoww Tweeted!
Mr. Christie apologized if he hurt the Snook’ s feelings by outing her lil’ secret place of residence, but is moving forward with what he calls a culture war against the state of NJ! Luckily, he’s not up for re-election until next year, so Snooki has a whole year to return to her home state!
“I tell (N.Y. Gov. Andrew Cuomo) all the time you can have them back,” Christie said, according to the NJBiz. “You will not be shocked to know that he has not sent a car yet, for Snooki, or JWoww or The Situation.” Well, I can’t wait to see what happens in the war of Jersey Shore vs. The State of New Jersey!
A new episode of the Jersey Shore airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
