Gary Oldman searches for the poetry in 'Jersey Shore'

It’s understood that a British accent can class up the most pedestrian of American dreck. As far as we’re concerned, every Brit went to Oxford and has afternoon tea with Colin Firth. But the British lilt was put to the test last night on Jimmy Kimmel, when Oscar-nominee Gary Oldman was tasked with reading an episode summary from the most recent Jersey Shore. Alas, there is no poetry between the words Snooki and urinary tract infection, no matter the graceful delivery and background violins. Still, this is as tasteful as Jersey Shore will ever sound.

The new (and improved?) Snooki: See the 'Jersey Shore' star sans makeup

How much can we ever really know or understand the enigma that is Nicole ‘Snooki‘ Polizzi? She is a best-selling author whose choice in skivvies (or, more often times than not, lack thereof) is something we’ve all unwillingly become all too familiar with and a self-proclaimed meatball whose battle cry sounds not unlike the sirens of the police cars she’s been taken away in, but the Snooks still remains one of life’s great mysteries. (Mostly of the ‘How?!’ ‘Why?!’ variety.)

And just when we thought maybe we had Snooki pegged, the lover of Jionnis and crocadillies and belching on national television surprised fans with a stunning new revelation: She actually looks like a human person. On Wednesday, Snooki tweeted a photo of herself sans makeup and the reality star received a flurry of compliments from the Internet regarding her au naturel beauty look. READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' exclusive clip: Mike and the Unit vs. Snooki

In his new role as the mad-scientist villain of Jersey Shore, The Situation has been quietly laying the groundwork for a major revelation: He hooked up with Snooki while she was in a relationship, and he has a witness to prove it. Unfortunately for Mike, that witness is a grown man named The Unit. In an exclusive clip from tonight’s episode of Jersey Shore, Mike looks ready to tell Snooki’s boyfriend Jionni everything. “Myself and the Unit are just gonna play a little game I call: ‘Gym, Tan, the Truth Will Set You Free.'” What a fun game! Check out the clip below: READ FULL STORY

Snooki, Michele Bachmann top 'Bad Science List'

The Sense About Science (SAS) campaign has named Jersey Shore doctor of grain liquor Snooki and Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann as two of 2011’s worst offenders of Bad Science. Bachmann went on TV to tell a story of a Tampa woman who claimed her daughter had become “mentally retarded” from an HPV vaccine, and Snooki — well, Snooki’s sort of a science experiment gone wrong in so many (and some delightful) ways that I’d like to give her scientific claim its own paragraph. Let it breathe a little, like seamen amidst a gust of sea air.

“I don’t really like the beach. I hate sharks, and the water’s all whale sperm. That’s why the ocean’s salty.”

The untethered inclusion of “I hate sharks” in there is almost poetic. Think about it for a few seconds. NO, I’m just kidding, don’t hurt yourselves. READ FULL STORY

Someone is suing Snooki for $7 million

No one succeeds in America without suffering through a few lawsuits. It was true for John D. Rockefeller, it was true for Mark Zuckerberg, and now it’s true for the cast of Jersey Shore. This year, the show’s male mascot and demonic supervillain Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino filed suit against Abercrombie and his own flesh and blood. Now, female mascot and real-life cartoon Tasmanian devil Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is experiencing her own exciting experiment in litigation. In October, Snooki sued licensing company SRG Ventures, arguing that the company didn’t fulfill its obligation to her — or, in legal terms, “they didn’t make her as rich as The Situation” — and attempting to be released from her contract.

Now, as originally reported by the New York Post, SRG has filed a $7 million countersuit against Snooki, claiming that the reality star was negotiating with other companies behind its back. READ FULL STORY

Best of 2011 (or is that Worst?): The year in reality TV meltdowns

No reality TV show can really call itself worthy of the name without at least one tear-streaked, red-faced, expletive-laden meltdown — the more out of left field, the better. And 2011 was chockablock with them, from Snooki on Jersey Shore to Taylor Armstrong on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, from Meat Loaf on Celebrity Apprentice to Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing With the Stars. Let us count the ways:  READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' season 5 trailer: 'This is Hurricane Situation, and it's headed straight for Snooki Island.'

The fourth season of Jersey Shore was supposed to be a rollicking fun-time adventure, with the gang returning to their ancestral Italian homeland. Instead, the Florentine misadventure slowly devolved — over 12 memorably event-free episodes — into a relentlessly miserable experiment in Buñuelian anxiety, with the Shore gang trapped in a glorious villa with no one to keep them company except for the people they hate most in the world.

'Jersey Shore'-naments: Which pop culture holiday decorations would you like to see?


In case you missed HSN’s “A Very Snooki Holiday Gift Special,” well… shame on you! You may have missed the fact that yet another holiday has been guido-fied. That’s right, GTL now stands for ‘Glitter, Trees, Lights.’ For the Nov. 10 special, Snooki partnered with Kurt S. Adler to create an exclusive collection of holiday ornaments (close-up after the jump) inspired by the Jersey Shore kids. Snooki’s collection is sold out, but it got us thinking.

Snooki's guidette beauty regimen is even grosser than you'd think...

We may live in a world where people put nightingale dung on their faces and let flesh-eating fish nip at their toes, but it still sounded like the Internet was playing a trick on Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi when she revealed her latest beauty secret on Conan last night. In her new book, Jersey Shore‘s favorite guidette mentioned that she likes to save money on her beauty regimen by Googling DIY treatments.

The latest and greatest, Snooki said, was putting cat litter (“Clean cat litter!” just in case you wondered) on her face. “It’s got exfoliates, they’ve got rocks in there,” she insisted, “It makes your skin really smooth,” and later added, “I haven’t broken out yet!” A ringing endorsement if there ever was one. See her describe the home remedy, plus advise Conan on how to become a guido, below. READ FULL STORY

The Situation is suing Abercrombie & Fitch for $4 million

Remember back in August, when Abercrombie & Fitch declared that they would pay The Situation money to not wear its clothing on Jersey Shore? We all had a good laugh about it. Then Abercrombie’s stock dropped 9 percent, a fact which made The Situation giggle with malicious glee. But Sitch is not satisfied with seeing his enemies merely defeated. He will not rest until he crushes Abercrombie, and he sees the board of directors driven before him, and he hears the lamentations of their women. Thus, on behalf of MPS Entertainment — a company founded by The Situation and his brother, Marc — lawyers have filed a Florida lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch for $4 million. READ FULL STORY
