ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. – A New Jersey lawmaker wants towns to have a say in the filming of reality TV shows within their boundaries before a Situation develops.
Ocean County Republican Assemblyman Ronald Dancer on Monday introduced legislation for a Snookiville Law. The law would let towns impose conditions including requiring TV crews to pay for additional police officers to assure public safety during filming.
August 30, 2012 (TheWrap.com) – MTV is ending the fist-pumping cultural phenomenon “Jersey Shore,” the network says.
The decision comes amid skyrocketing salaries for the cast of former unknowns that have made MTV’s most successful series increasingly expensive to produce. MTV said “Jersey Shore” will end after its sixth season, which premieres Oct. 4.
MTV will commemorate the end of the show with farewell programming beginning next Thursday, with a one-hour retrospective called “Gym, Tan, Look Back” that will air before MTV’s Video Music Awards.
The series, which has followed a group of self-proclaimed “guidos” and “guidettes” from the Jersey Shore to Italy, has popularized such phrases as “grenade” (an unattractive person), “smush” (have sex with) and “GTL” (gym, tan, laundry).
Reality “star” Snooki Polizzi of Jersey Shore fame was chastised by a judge, fined $500 and given two days of community service for creating a scene on the beach. On July 30th an intoxicated Snooki ventured onto the beach, drew a crowd (shock) and disturbed sunbathers by being loud, obnoxious and tripped over people.
Snooki stated her “performance” was not scripted when asked by the judge if this was part of the show.
Snooki left a credit card behind in her haste to leave the courtroom. An employee ran after her with it.
Snooki got in further hot water when she tweeted about Newark traffic and the Mayor of Newark threatened her with a ticket for texting and driving. Home girl can’t get a break no how.
A day in the life of a girl from Poughkeepsie…sigh
Snooki was arrested in Seaside Heights for disorderly conduct this afternoon. Of course, the MTV cameras were there to capture the action! Look for footage in an upcoming episode of Jersey Shore.
Snooki was publically intoxicated (say it isn’t so) and was arrested by two officers…cuffs and all. She was looking might disheveled and wearing a shirt that said SLUT as her sun glasses were sliding off her face. The pictures are mighty unflattering!
I thought they were banned for life after filming Season 1? Now they are back filming Season 3!
