Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola and Jenni “JWoww” Farley recently sat down with Access Hollywood to talk about their cameos in the Farrelly brothers’ upcoming The Three Stooges, which also features roommates Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi. Said JWoww, “For the Farrelly Brothers to say how well we did… it gives me chills.” Honored and emboldened by the experience, the roommates gushed over each other’s performances and hinted at the possibility of pursuing acting beyond the Shore.

'Jersey Shore' season premiere is tonight! But first, let Ronnie and Sammi tell you about the joys of Florence
The fourth season of Jersey Shore is based around a premise so deliciously off-kilter that even the vocal mass of people who consider the show a harbinger of the end of Western Civilization will probably tune in, if only so they have something new to complain about. The tanned-up gym freaks are leaving behind the humble decadence of Seaside Heights, N.J., to return to the ancestral home of the modern age of wonders: Florence, the Italian metropolis that was once home to Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, and many of the other great thinkers and artists of the Renaissance. It’s a perfect mixture of the sacred and the profane, the rough equivalent of asking the Pope to consecrate a row of tequila shots. The famously problem-plagued shoot included delays, Visa problems, fights, neck braces, and presumably a few Bunga Bunga parties. READ FULL STORY »
On August 4, MTV’s Jersey Shore gang will take their GTL adventures overseas for a much-publicized trip to the motherland — that is, Florence, Italy. In the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, guest columnist and Jersey Shore exec producer Sallyann Salsano writes about the culture clash that ensued, including car accidents, crying, and lots of cobblestone wipeouts. Check out an excerpt after the jump. READ FULL STORY »
My obsession with Jersey Shore is unfortunately well-documented, so you can imagine the explosive mix of emotions I felt earlier today, when rumors started circulating that MTV was planning to replace the original Shore cast — whose paychecks are swelling at roughly the same rate as their pectorals — with a new crew of tandroid gym-freaks with colorful nicknames and self-esteem issues. MTV has since denied the recasting; the network told EW, “We love the present cast, and their summer adventures have just begun.” The original cast has already filmed the upcoming fourth season in Italy, and is currently filming a fifth season back in Jersey.

No no no, please, we don’t need an explanation, we’re just begging MTV to tell us when this show is coming back, because apparently Jersey Shore season 4 is taking a horrifically beautiful bellyflop into Lady-Gaga-circa-2009 territory.

‘Jersey Shore’: 25 Most Outrageous Moments
I thought 2010 was the Year of New Jersey. Then we saw this news: Last night’s Real Housewives of New Jersey premiere attracted 2.87 million viewers, making Monday the best night in Bravo’s history, according to the network. Add to that the fact that interest in Jersey Shore has only increased in its third season, and that I see posters for Jerseylicious more than I see my own face, and it’s official: I was wrong. Clearly, 2011 is the year in which we will fully embrace the Garden State (until next year) with successful series that spout more stereotypes than a third-rate stand-up comic at an open mic night. Because, if we listen to reality TV, New Jersey is a state full of loud women with big hair and beefy husbands who are
suspicious waste management workers entrepreneurs. Actually, that’s true. (Hey, I live there half the year.) But! It’s also full of other wonderful things that should be highlighted on the small screen. Television, here are the New Jersey-centric series I want to see in 2011: READ FULL STORY »
“Fare casino.” It’s an idiomatic Italian phrase that doesn’t have a straight English translation; it literally means “to make a brothel,” but could be translated as “uncontrolled confusion” or “to make a mess of things.” Or it really could just mean “party hard.” Do all these phrases remind you of anything?
As MTV’s Jersey Shore makes its long-anticipated, slightly delayed, reportedly controversial arrival in Florence, Italy, it shouldn’t be surprising that almost every Florentine local we interviewed for this story used the expression fare casino when describing their worries about the U.S. reality hit. “The general feeling towards Jersey Shore being in Florence is excitement that they’re shooting here, but also a bit of unease,” says Dasha Savage, an American college student studying abroad who served as my eyes and ears (and translator) in Florence. “I heard many older Italians express opinions of disgust for having these people come to their city.”
To get a sense of what the target MTV demographic thinks of the Jersey Shore‘s Italian invasion, we took to Palazzo Giovane, a hangout spot for young Florentine schoolkids. There the local students expressed a mixture of disgust and anticipation. READ FULL STORY »
On last night’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, Martin Short debuted the trailer for his labor of love, Jersey Short, a cautionary tale of what happens when Snooki gets pregnant and delivers a pickle. He stars in every role. The best moment is Snooki’s entrance. Watch it below.
Also: Short looks pretty good as a woman, right? It got me thinking that he should star in a drag comedy with The Kids in the Hall. This is just off the top of my head: What if six guys going through a midlife crisis wanted to buy a mansion owned by a dying widow (played by Betty White). It’s so big, they could each have their own wing to impress the ladies. The widow says there’s no way she’d sell her beautiful estate to a group of men. If they were women, maybe. The men figure they can dress in drag long enough to outlast the widow. What about all the paperwork they’d have to sign as themselves? Okay, so the widow has a greedy son who handles all of that, and he won’t tell on them as long as they [insert bribe from each of them]. Bad? Yes. But again, just off the top of my head.
