Tag: Jersey Shore (91-100 of 162)
Last night’s special episode of Jersey Shore started with Angelina walk-of-shaming away from Vinny’s increasingly-popular bed. Maybe he realized that he was becoming the human incarnation of the Community Smush room, because Vinny decided to make a change. He met a nice girl in the club, and purposefully did not make moves to smush, smash, or slam. “This is the kind of girl you take out on a date,” he explained, sounding like an archeologist describing the lost city of Atlantis. Alas for our poor openhearted Vin, Ramona the dancer turned him down. Twice. He got flowers, and he got a haircut, but he had no girl. All wifed up with nowhere to go. READ FULL STORY »
uncovered court documents yesterday showing that Jersey Shore star Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was denied a trademark on his nickname by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for his planned clothing line. The problem was “Situation” was already trademarked by a Memphis clothing company last year, and the USPTO lawyer decided any further claim on the name would be confusing. (Sorrentino’s lawyer’s contention that the added “The” made it totally different, alas, went nowhere.) The Smoking Gun
To recap: The Situation needs a new nickname. So we here at PopWatch are ready and willing to help him out. Our first stop is the good ol’ thesaurus, which will tell me all the suitable synonyms for “situation”. Let’s try a few on for size: “The Circumstances”? Too wishy-washy. “The Condition”? Sounds like a disease. “The Status Quo”? Too…Latin. What do you think? If the Situation can’t be the Situation, who should the Situation be?
Last night’s episode began with a fight between two people who have no reason to hate each other. It ended with a night-vision makeout sesh between two people who have every reason to hate each other. Angelina called her boy toy “Daddy.” Snooki’s man-bot called her “Mommy.” When Vinny heard that his girl-crush worked at Hooters, he proudly noted, “She’s a classy girl.” Jose told Angelina to behave, so she decided not to. Life is topsy-turvy. Left is right. Right is wrong. The Situation summed it up sagely: “F—ing Santa Claus is dead.”
At one point, the camera lingered on Ronnie victoriously thrusting his pelvis into the back of Sammi’s head, while Sammi flashed us a confused stare. Some day, far in the future, alien robots from space will sift through the wreckage of our civilization. And they will find that video. And they will say: “That…was America. READ FULL STORY »
Yesterday, America’s favorite miniature reality nugget Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was in a New Jersey court to face charges stemming from her July arrest during production of season 3 in Seaside Heights. Snooki was fined $500 and ordered to perform community service as punishment for being drunk and disorderly on the beach. But the judge also admonished Snooki (“Rude, profane, obnoxious and self-indulgent is not the way to live your life. If this was your idea of a good time, it appears your recent celebrity has affected your judgment.”) and he called her a “Lindsay Lohan wannabe.”
Now, I’m not saying that Snooki is an innocent angel, but she’s hardly on some kind of destructive Lohan-esque path. She’s on a reality show which pretty much demands that she have fun and go out and drink alcohol. Plus, as anyone can attest to on the show, Snooki is hardly “rude” or “obnoxious.” She’s actually one of the more endearing castmembers on the show. I may be a Jersey Shore apologist, but I’m also tired of people being so mean to this cast. You can dislike the show. You can choose not to watch it. These kids aren’t hurting anyone (except for maybe the few random folks they have gotten in fights with) and, personally, I don’t think they deserve such vitriol. But then again, to use the words of the judge, Jersey Shore IS actually my idea of a good time.
new still-untitled scripted series, starring rising comedian Bo Burham, who will also write and executive produce the show, about an American teen fresh out of high school who makes it his mission to become a celebrity despite a lack of actual “talent.”If Paris Hilton, the Kardashians, and the Jersey Shore cast have taught us anything, it’s that with the right look, a good publicist, and the ability to ham it up for cameras on cue, almost anyone can become famous without doing much of anything at all. MTV is taking that idea and rolling with it for a
The new show is the latest scripted series on MTV’s slate, joining the just-finished Hard Times of R.J. Berger , an upcoming adaptation of the U.K.’s Skins, and Teen Wolf, an update of the 1985 Michael J. Fox movie.
What do you say? Will you be tuning into this new pilot? What do you think of MTV’s new scripted fare?
Quinnipiac University poll surveyed people about the show, and 51 percent had an unfavorable opinion. Only 11 percent had a favorable opinion, and the rest of the people refused to answer or hadn’t heard enough about the show to respond.The cast of Jersey Shore won’t be fist pumping this news anytime soon. Residents of New Jersey and New York are up in arms over who will claim MTV’s GTL-ing bunch. Earlier this month, a
But far more interesting are the politics surrounding the debate. (And no, I’m not talking about the continuing love affair between Snooki and John McCain.) New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie got involved last month when he blamed the Garden State’s bad reputation on several cast members who are actually from New York. (If Governors really get to talk about reality TV for work, I might consider working on a political campaign someday!) Anyway, not to be outdone, New York Gov. David Paterson blamed the environment of the Jersey Shore for the seedy reputation. Fight! Fight! Fight!
And now, thanks to the work of this new poll, we know that 35 percent of New Jersey voters agree with Gov. Christie, and 19 percent agree with Gov. Paterson. For those of you who are math impaired, like me, that leaves 46 percent who just don’t know what they think. Say what?! No opinion on the Jersey Shore? For shame! READ FULL STORY »
