The Situation


Jersey Shore’s pint-sized Guidette, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, sat down with GQ for what she called her “first interview ever” and talked the girl behind the poof, changing Jersey Shore and how she wishes MTV would portray the cast members as the “intelligent” people they really are.

Apparently, Ms. Snookers went to college! Oh and in case you’re wondering if the New York Times best selling author is a reader – she’s not. “I don’t read,” she said. “I just used the CliffsNotes, books were too long.”

Snooki is well aware of the public’s perception of her and the cast mates, explaining “they just think that we’re stupid, that we have no education, and all we do is drink, have sex.” But she wants everyone to know she’s actually very smart! “I went to college,” where she studied Veterinary Technology! Yes – Snooki can actually assist in operating on animals and, yes, she wore leopard print scrubs! In fact, she would love to return to school and get her Vet Tech license.

Snooki also revealed she is bothered by MTV’s portrayal of the cast of Jersey Shore and how it pretty much ruined her image by making her look trashy, trampy, and totally vapid and if she were in charge things would go very differently. “I wouldn’t show as much drinking and partying. I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time — which they don’t show,” she laments. “We don’t even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don’t show anything but us drinking and hooking up.”

As for what motivates MTV to only show the negative (re: trashy) behaviors of the cast, Snooki thinks it’s all about the Benjamins! “Maybe because of the success of the show, they think that if they don’t show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn’t stay successful,” she muses. “I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it’d even change people’s minds about us.”

Whatever the perception of the show, Snooki thinks it’s absurd when people get upset about the words “Guido” and “Guidette”. Asked about some people comparing the terms to the N-word, Snooki calls those claims “ridiculous” and explains that while the N-word is “seriously offensive”, Guido is not. “’Guido’ is used as a lifestyle — like being a prep, skater, gothic. We’re Guidos. Plus, I’m not even Italian!”

Snooki rebuffs accusations that Jersey Shore has given her city and state a bad reputation. “They need to get over it,” she snaps. “We’re not representing Jersey.” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie unfortunately disagrees and was so disappointed with Jersey Shore he denied MTV’s tax credit, which is doled out to encourage filming in the state. Mr. Christie sent a letter to the network stating he was “duty-bound to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a $420,000 bill for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”

Making it clear that success – and the money that comes with it – hasn’t gone to her head, Snooki revealed that her outfit cost “like 50 bucks!” The reality star reportedly made $750,000 in the last year alone, but is very conservative with her money! “I save it,” she insists. “Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!” Yikes!

That’s impressive, because The Situation allegedly earned around 2.5 – 3M last year! He must belong to the Kate Gosselin school of saving!

As for what’s next for Snooki, the Donald Trump fan (who even said he would get her vote for the GOP presidential nod) is expanding her brand! “I’m actually trying to get a clothing line together. I have perfume and tanning lotion, eyelashes, nail polish…” She also has a new novel, Gorilla Nation, coming soon! Furthermore, Snooki is making a cameo in two movies and hopes to land a guest spot on The Office!

THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE IS INTELLIGENT AND MISREPRESENTED BY MTV? DO YOU THINK THEIR BEHAVIOR ADDS TO THAT MISCONCEPTION? ARE YOU SURPRISED SNOOKI IS GOOD WITH MONEY?

They’re back! Fresh off the cast’s European excursion to Florence, Italy — MTV has announced it will be kicking off the new year with an all new season of Jersey Shore!

Yes, America’s favorite drunken hotmesses housemates will return to Seaside Heights, NJ, when season five of the MTV hit series premieres on Thursday, January 5, 2012 (10/9c).

Back on their home turf and excited to be in their natural habitat, “the cast hits the ground running to get their “G.T.L” regimen back on schedule while also dealing with their evolving group dynamic amidst the tensions and hookup rumors left over from their time in Florence.”

To mark the special occasion, MTV also released a preview clip for the new season which features DJ Pauly D recovering from a tanning accident after burning his face when trying to get his skin tanned. He was trying to correct the paleness he suffered while in Italy. The rest of the cast is also shown as they prepare to hit their favorite club Karma.

As we reported, the cast began filming season 5 immediately following their return from filming season 4 in Italy. They did not get a break which in turn led to some more drama, such as Vinny Guadagnino quitting the show, only to return days later.

The preview clip is below!

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.

It’s like Christmas, Jersey Shore style with two new episodes airing within 72 hours of one another. And of course, MTV needs to capitalize on the VMAs by finishing the Rawn/Mike smackdown right before the awards show airs. Brilliant.

The show begins with Sammi stupidly placing herself between a roided Rawn and a flipping out crazy insane Situation. Mike loses it and slams his head into the concrete wall before crumbling to the ground. Intelligence just abounds on this show. JWoww attempts to get some sort of reaction from a dazed and confused Mike, while the ever gentlemanly Rawn mocks Sammi’s tears and blames her for not telling him about Mike’s gossip sooner. “Stawp Rawn!” Poor Sammi is able to get out the way before being manhandled by her sensitive (ex) boyfriend.

Jersey Shore’s “Twinning” aired last night with Mike winning twins. He loses one to Deena while losing his friendship with Snooks. Rawn and Sam make-up, while Vinny and Pauly, as always, entertain the masses.

The episode starts out with Florida chick trying to find her clothes while the Situation tries to find her a cab. Mike gets distracted on his way to the phone and feels the need to nap on the patio furniture where he proceeds to get attacked by a pigeon. Not once, but twice. How can you not believe in karma?

Ronnie can’t believe that after three seasons of this mess, he is just now realizing how alike he and Snooki are. They are both DTWO (down to work out), DTD (down to drink), DTP (down to party), and DTHAGT (down to have a good time)…I assume that DTF is implied, although hopefully not with each other. Neither are DTRAM (down to read a map) so when they can’t find the gym, the pair opts for cocktails at a local bistro. Snooki seems to be the only one in the house who hope Rawn and Sam reconcile because the drama Snooks brings pales in comparison to their relationship.

While the popularity of MTV’s mega hit show Jersey Shore continues to soar, there is one clothing company that would like nothing to do with the show.

Evidently Abercrombie and Fitch is NOT a fan of The Situation, 29, and is now in fact offering him alongside his castmates a “substantial” amount of cash to never sport their gear again.

“We are deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image,” the company said in a press release on Tuesday. “We understand that the show is for entertainment purposes, but believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans.”

The statement continued, “We have therefore offered a substantial payment to Michael ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino and the producers of MTV’s The Jersey Shore to have the character wear an alternate brand. We have also extended this offer to other members of the cast, and are urgently waiting a response.”

Ouch! What is a bit odd is that the company reportedly capitlized on The Situation’s popularity last year by releasing a “Fitchuation” t-shirt.

And it turns out The Sitch is not the only reality star to turn off a clothing company. The Starcasm blog reports Teen Mom star Gary Shirley also received a request from another clothing company –Aeropostale — days ago asking him to stop wearing their gear as well.

Gary tweeted, “I’m no longer allowed to wear Aero although I did stop wearing it a while ago. They called and banned it. Was a very sad day for me :( RIP..” He later added, “Aero reached out and asked to either blur or not wear at all…” Surely that has to hurt.

Weeks after the rumor mill stated Jersey Shore star Snooki was actually in talks to do Dancing With The Stars, the self proclaimed guidette is now speaking out on the rumors.

And as it turns out, the Snooks is actually interested in putting on her dancing shoes! “I didn’t get asked [to be on 'Dancing'], but if I do, dude, I’m bringing the fist pump to the floor,” Snooki told Access Hollywood Live on Wednesday. She added, “If they ask me I’ll do it!”

Meanwhile, Snooki, 23, appeared on Good Morning America yesterday during which she actually talked marriage and making “guido babies” with her beau Jionni LaValle.

“I’ve calmed down already. I don’t hook up anymore,” the Snooks told GMA. “I’ll always be this crazy, fun person, but when it’s time to get married, I’m going to be an amazing wife.”

“Jionni is a great guy so I’m so down to making Guido babies with him,” Snooki stated though adding the guido babies will have to wait a bit. “I’m only 23, but eventually I would love to get married.”

Moving on to tonight’s all new episode of the Jersey Shore which has castmates JWoww and Sammi butting heads. In the preview below, Ronnie and Sammi’s volatile relationship appears to take a toll on their roommates while in Italy.

In the clip, Vinny makes it clear he is over Sammi’s erratic behavior when around her then ex-boyfriend Ronnie during a drunken night out. “I’m done with him and you being drunk,” Vinny tells Sammi. “When Ronnie and Sammi are drunk, they turn into different people and there’s no getting through to them,” he later states in the clip.

JWoww then chimes in, agreeing with Vinny. “This needs to stop! You’re not in high school and you need to grow up and find a happy medium,” snaps JWoww (Preach it sister!). Sammi however gets defensive. “I have feelings for Ron and I always will,” she angrily tells the gang. “It’s hard living with your ex-boyfriend and going out. I’m dealing with it the best I can, and I feel like I’ve been doing pretty f–king good!”

The preview clip is below! And as we reported Sammie and Ronnie did indeed get back together in Italy, and it appears they are still going strong today… for the time being.

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!

Will you be watching? Are you sad Jersey Shore is ending? Do you think the Guidos and Guidettes will remain friends?
