Teresa Giudice, Danielle Staub react to 'South Park' episode, look to 'SNL' next

south-park-1409-jerseyOn South Park, no one is safe from ridicule, and considering the ridiculous behaviors from the casts of Jersey Shore and The Real Housewives of New Jersey, the Garden State reality stars seem long overdue for the Comedy Central treatment (imitation is the sincerest form of flattery). New Jersey’s most famous inhabitants were the subject of last night’s “It’s a Jersey Thing,” in which animated versions of the smush-loving, table-flipping gang moved to South Park, Colo. Jersey Shore‘s Snooki was seen as a snorting, crawling Pickle Monster, while Real Housewives‘ Teresa Giudice was a loud, foul-mouthed mother, whose husband Joe’s rippling biceps blinded his fellow dinner guests … so basically, they weren’t too far from their actual selves. All in all, the reality stars couldn’t be happier (a spoof is better than silence, no?) — or so some of them tell EW.

Former cast member Danielle Staub, who’s been portrayed as the villain of the series, got a laugh from the depiction of her former castmates. “I was pleasantly surprised it wasn’t just me being made fun of for a change,” Staub tells EW. “You realize you’re something else when you’re being made into a cartoon. It’s pretty funny.” Giudice, for her part, released a statement to EW saying she is “honored to be mocked by them,” yet considers herself lucky by default. “Poor Snooki though! I got off easy compared to her!”

Speaking of Snooki, the Jersey Shore cast took to their Twitter pages to respond to the episode: READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore': J-Woww begins new career as a professional wrestler?

Jenni “J-Woww” Farley could be described as the sane housemate on Jersey Shore, if we defined “sane” to mean “has thus far avoided debasing herself with The Situation.” But fame makes you do weird things. So we shouldn’t be too surprised that J-Woww is guest starring as “herself” on this Thursday’s edition of the “wrestling” program TNA iMPACT! (The TNA stands for Total Nonstop Action. Yes!) The video below is just a preview — no fighting, boo! — but you get to see a Snooki-lookalike insult J-Woww’s “very fake dollar-store funbags.” READ FULL STORY

Exclusive: Watch the trailer for Vh1's new reality series 'My Big Friggin' Wedding'

If there is a record for the amount of times people use the term “friggin'” on a reality show, it will undoubtedly be shattered by Vh1’s new reality series, My Big Friggin’ Wedding. From the producers of Jersey Shore (of course!), comes this latest ode to people yelling and gettin’ drunk. But this time…there’s weddings!!! While the series doesn’t premiere until Nov. 1 at 9 p.m., we have an exclusive peak at the trailer for the trashtastic series. Watch below…

What do you think PopWatchers? Has Vh1 struck gold with this show? Or is it not your cup of (vodka-spiked) tea?

'Jersey Shore' recap: A wretched hive of scummy villains

The problem is that, with Angelina gone, the house has lost its scapegoat. You could blame anything on her. Our letter-writing campaign blew up in our faces? Blame Angelina! We couldn’t bring home any chicks? Blame Angelina! I’m a roid-addled botox-slurping man-child who unironically wears my sunglasses at night? Blame Angelina! But the Great Nemesis is gone now, and that leaves our beloved housemates in an awkward position. They are left with nothing but one stark truth: They are all quite awful people, actually. They lack even the most basic communication skills. They are vain, selfish, materialistic, proudly uneducated. They drink like college freshmen and smush like horny mutant bunny rabbits. But their self-proclaimed leader is the worst of them all. As last night’s episode proved, The Situation is the secret villain of Jersey Shore.

You could tell things were bad when Sitch put on his vest before he went out to the club. “Sitch wearing a vest” is like “Spider-Man wearing the black costume”: you just know some weird Freudian evil is going to happen. Sure enough, Mr. Circumstance attacked ladies with his trademark panzer-tank charm. One girl charmingly screamed, “Help me!” Another girl flirtatiously pleaded, “I’m, like, begging you. I’m trying to have fun, but you’re, like, too much.” Rargh! Women refusing Situation! Situation angry! Situation become passive-aggressive! READ FULL STORY

'Bones' meets 'Jersey Shore' tonight. Does any single individual actually watch both shows?

Bones-Jersey-ShoreImage Credit: Brian Bowen Smith/Fox; MTVTonight’s episode of Bones promises to be the series’ most smush-tacular, tan-tastic, GTL-licious hour ever, because the skeleton-loving investigators of the Jeffersonian are solving a Jersey Shore-themed case. Since Jersey Shore itself will also air tonight, we got to thinking: Is there any overlapping viewership between these two utterly different shows? (Besides the unfortunate soul who recaps them both?) Praise Science! After long weeks of hard work, the PopWatch laboratory (led by the fearless Dr. Annie Q. Barrett) has finally come up with a helpful infographic to sum up our findings… READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore: The RPG': So good, Ronnie would smush it

Hey, PopWatch clowns, haven’t had enough Jersey Shore between the weekly episodes, daily reruns, and countless articles about the Garden State royalty? (Sorry, Chris Christie; the laws of GTL reign supreme in PW HQ.) Well, prepare for tonight’s new episode by checking out College Humor’s totally poppin’ role-playing game, Jersey Shore: The RPG. In the video, The Situation, Pauly D, Vinny, and Ronnie — reduced to little more than a steroid-enhanced Tarzan negotiating the petrifying jungles of Seaside (works two ways!) — fight a pack of disrespecting clowns during their search for non-grenade hot tub companionship. Spoiler alert: Vinny doesn’t it make it through to the end, either because of post-traumatic stress related to Pauly D’s DJ-ing, or because the watermelon simply weighed him down too much.

'Jersey Shore' recap: Angelina Vs.

Angelina-Jersey-ShoreImage Credit: Emily Shur/MTVWhat has this crazy world come to when a small orange girl with gigantic hair can’t find herself a handsome Gorilla Juicehead for to smush with? Poor, lovelorn Shnookums is feeling lonely. She knows the perfect man is out there. He is a romantical nympho. He frolics around dorkily. He wears an Ed Hardy shirt. In his left hand, he holds an iPhone, with speakers bumping out old-school Deadmau5. In his right hand, he holds a bucket of pickles. “Oh, Mr. Gorilla Juicehead,” said Snooks, “Won’t you send me a dream?”

But last night’s chapter of The Adventures of Mr. Circumstance and His Hooligan Gang wasn’t about puppy love. In fact, you could argue that last night was the most nihilistic episode of television MTV has ever produced, besides maybe the wedding episode of The Hills. Consider, if you will, the Three Trials of Angelina the Unwise:

Angelina Vs. The Situation

Sitch doesn’t get upset very easily. Sure, he’s offended by dirty things. Sure, he doesn’t like it when women are immune to his kryptonite charms. Sure, he pouts like a 12-year-old girl whenever anyone gives his self-esteem an ouchie. But he’s generally an even-keeled guy. Except around Angelina. He was angry at her. She called him names. Quoth The Situation: “How dare you speak to me like this? I’m the glue of this family!” READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' goes to Japan; Can you come up with a better title than 'Macaroni Rascals'?

Jersey-Shore-Macaroni-RascalsImage Credit: Emily Shur/MTV; James And James/FoodPix/Getty ImagesEach week, we at PopWatch HQ prepare for new episode of Jersey Shore by studying Nietzsche and reading international news websites. It was while doing the latter that we found a tasty item from March on CNN International. Apparently, in Japan, Jersey Shore‘s title is Jersey Shore: The New Jersey Life of Macaroni Rascals. (CNN admits to a bit of self-censorship; the actual title is closer to Macaronia A–holes, which sounds like a put-down from Deadwood.) That title is pretty hilarious…albeit just a wee bit offensive. Cultural sensitivity is our watchword, so to our friends across the Pacific, here are a few somewhat less touchy title possibilities: READ FULL STORY

Zach Galifianakis teases Snooki on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live!'

Zach Galifianakis was on Jimmy Kimmel Live! last night, and he was, perhaps predictably, extremely hilarious. He talked about his farm in North Carolina, pimped a few of his projects, and was generally just super silly and a little higher energy than usual. Also, Galifianakis alongside Snooki is so culturally dissonant that I think my brain is melting: READ FULL STORY

'Jersey Shore' recap: Her monthly situation

Angelina gave Jose a gift certificate for his birthday: “One Evening in the Community Smush Room, Smushing Optional.” I don’t want to sound like a prude, viewers, but why, why, WHY would you spend an entire night in that dystopian disease factory, that laboratory of biological perversion, without once smushing? Ronnie happily noted that the bed had developed a local population: “My children, Pauly’s children, Snooki juice.” (Since there hasn’t been an outbreak of the bubonic plague yet, we can deduce that the room functions on the Mr. Burns Principle.)

Poor Jose walked away bangless. No sympathy bang. No birthday bang. No Bang the Drum Slowly DVD starring a young Robert De Niro. “Jose’s definitely getting played,” said Ronnie. (“Like a piano,” he explained. “That is getting cheated on by a girl piano,” he concluded.) Part of me thinks that Angelina is getting a bad rap. We all know that, if she were a guy, she’d basically be the Situation, except not 45 years old. READ FULL STORY
