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!
“The Situtation”, “Snooki” and “DJ Pauly D” paid a visit to the ladies on The View on Tuesday. The panel was divided….two for, two against. Elisabeth Hasselbeck wore an “I heart the Situation” tee- shirt, Sherri Shepherd dressed like Snooki, complete with hair bump, while Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar were clearly not feeling the love. Especially Joy (talk about being misnamed).
“The Situation” had nicknames for the panel….Whoopi is “The Administration, Joy is “The Assumption”, Elisabeth is “The Attraction” and Sherri was “The Duplication” since she was rockin’ the Snooki hair bump. The ladies liked their nicknames.
Joy went right after Snooki by making the statement they were all not Italian Americans however, Snooki is part Sicilian, although mostly Chilean. JWOW is evidently not Italian American either. Joy got in some other digs about the all the sex on the show and asked if they use condoms etc… She was her usual snarky self.
Snooki got a big laugh when she was asked when she realized she was famous….the answer was “pretty much at birth”…..DJ Pauly D was asked if he was surprised by the fame and was he still working. He responded “yes, I’m still DJing but now my rate went up” which got another huge laugh from the audience. “The Situation” refused to show his abs despite coaxing from the ladies. He said he didn’t want to cheapen “the brand”…
Whoopi asked the cast what their long-range goals are…”The Situation” said he would like to try acting. They all said they are saving their money. Snooki stated her father handles her money.
All in all the interview was fun, despite Joy “The Assumption’s” “tude”.
Evidently everybody loves them some Snooki. Vera Wang’s models have been sporting “poofs” ala Snooki from Jersey Shore on the runway as of late. I guess the “Guidette” look may become as fashion statement!
