I’m dreading this Fox dating show called The Choice, which features sleazy, celebrity bachelors that all agree to go on semi blind dates. The show is set up similar to The Voice in that the celebs can’t see their potential dates — they can only hear their voices. The contestants share their date pitches with the celebrities until they’re chosen.
GAG. Apparently Fox likes to recycle every successful show by applying the exact same formula to other aspects of life.
Celebrity bachelors include Jersey Shore’s Pauly D and ‘The Situation,’ as well as American Idol
star singer Taylor Hicks. First, I don’t know why anyone would want to go on a romantic date with anyone whose motto is DTF and also, why would Joe Jonas need help finding a date? Weren’t girls all over him a couple years ago?
Female celebrities include actress Carmen Electra and model Hope Dworaczyk. The trailer below insists no one plays the dating game like Fox, but The Choice and Take Me Out is a little too tacky for me. What do you guys think?
Watch it here:
Summer. [Insert a relaxing sigh here] The more I say it the more excited I get. Now that the weather is FINALLY bearable and the beaches are officially opened, it’s time to brainstorm summer date ideas… inspired by who else? Some of our favourite celebs.
1) Bike Date
Miley Cyrus and hunky boyfriend Liam Hemsworth pedalled to a nearby 7-11 convenience store to get a Slurpee in Toluca, California. They’re the ultimate couple for cute date ideas. In the past they’ve gone jet-skiing and got fresh Dirty Dancing-style. Miley also punk’d Liam, though we only advise that if you both have a good sense of humour.
2) Outdoor Movie
Justin Bieber rented out an ENTIRE movie theatre for a date with Selena Gomez. Okay, so this probs isn’t going to happen. For one thing, you’re not Justin Bieber. Also, you’re not Justin Bieber. Anyway, the musician rented out the Staples Center so he and Selena could watch Titanic in privacy. Apparently he didn’t even have to pay! We’re not expecting you to top this because it’s oodles of moolah, but a simple drive-in movie is be a cute date idea. If you don’t have a car, that’s okay. Set up a blanket on the grass and enjoy the movie in each other’s arms.
3) Outdoor Music Festival Read more…
Just in time for Pauly D’s new spinoff reality show comes his new single “Night of My Life.” How convenient for marketing purposes, right? The song makes you want to watch the show and the show makes you want to listen to the song. It’s an endless and inescapable cycle.
The song, which features Dash, is the theme song for the spinoff. The song is actually pretty danceable and upbeat, aka it’s not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
MTV’s The Pauly D Project chronicles his rise from Jersey Shore GTL/DTF housemate to world class DJ. 50 Cent signed him to his music label and he’s opening for a couple shows on Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale Tour. The show is filled with Vegas-style partying, unnecessary shit-disturbing by Pauly and endless bro-drama.
Listen to it here:
Season 6 of Jersey Shore just got the “go ahead” and I have so many questions. Like, how healthy is it for a pregnant Snooki to stay in this alcohol-fuelled, smush house?
All eight cast members are set to start production this summer in Seaside Heights. Well… nine if you include the bun in Snooki’s oven.
Vinny recently joked around with E! News that he wants to turn the house’s “smush room” into a baby room for Snooki and Jionni’s offspring. Who knows, if they go long enough maybe we’ll get a spinoff called “Jersey Shore: Full House,” featuring Pauly D and Vinny as the weird uncles and Deena as the creepy babysitter.
Despite declining ratings, MTV already announced spinoffs featuring Pauly D and Snooki with JWoww. Fewer than 5 million viewers tuned in for the final episodes of Season 5, but maybe Snooki’s pregnancy will be enough to draw in more viewers.
Will you watch it?
In the midst of Snooki’s rumored pregnancy and spin off show comes the trailer for Pauly D’s new reality gig The Pauly D Project. The trailer is just as we presumed, full of bros, booze, blowouts and babes. Oh, and of course lots of hairspray. Here are five things I learned from the new trailer:
1) Pauly D still lives with his dad in Rhode Island despite being (presumably) filthy rich. This makes him what is popularly known as a big bambino, or a big baby.
2) You can take the boys out of Jersey but you can’t take the Jersey out of the boys. This season they head to Las Vegas for what’s basically a prolonged version of the hangover… but instead of the hangover we just get the drunk part. We even have the girlfriend-whipped Stu in the form of Biggie (“no strip clubs, no whores”) and Pauly D’s mentor and wing man Phil in Ryan.
3) Pauly D always needs friends to make an interesting show. We’re used to him fading into the wood-paneled background of the Jersey House, watching the attention hogging behaviour of Snooki and
Mike the Situation. Pauly D’s problem riddled friends hog the spotlight once again, namely hothead Ryan who storms off in one scene.
4) Pauly D is capable of having a steady girlfriend and relatively normal job. Okay, so being a DJ isn’t the same as a fluorescent-lit cubicle but it’s still something. We also see Pauly D’s love interest in Angel, a girl he knew in high school. This season is all about
DTF DTD, down to date.
5) Cameos might be the most interesting part of the show. Pauly D signs a record deal with 50 Cent and takes the stage with Britney Spears. Sadly we see no Jersey appearances.
Watch the trailer below:
The “Jersey Shore” spinoffs continue. As we reported earlier, Pauly D has been given an MTV spinoff, and now its confirmed JWOWW and Snooki have a deal.
Examiner.com reports the show starts filming this month. The show’s executive producer, SallyAnn Salsano calls the new show about Snooki and JWoWW ‘hysterical’ with a ‘Laverne & Shirley‘ feel. “We just want to branch off on our own and we want to do our own thing and we’re excited about it so I’m excited to show all the fans how we are without the shore,” Snooki is quoted as saying.
The show is expected to debut sometime in 2012. We feel another “Simple Life” coming. Remember Paris Hilton’s and Nicole Richie’s reality show?
Hollywoodlife.com is reporting “Jersey Shore’s” Pauly D is getting his own MTV spinoff. The show has finished filming, and will begin airing very soon.
“The show is done being filmed,” a source says. “Pauly is really excited for the spinoff — he wants to be a part of the Jersey Shore franchise until he’s a senior citizen.”
We are happy that Pauly D has a spinoff. Of all the cast members of “Jersey Shore,” he is definitely the most likable and genuine. However, it’s only a matter of time until Snooki gets her own show too.
What spinoff would be more interesting? A Pauly D spinoff or a Snooki spinoff?
If you loved ‘Jersey Shore,’ this is bad news. If you hate it, this could be good news. HollywoodLife is reporting a connected source is claiming MTV’s ‘Jersey Shore’ might be finished after season 5.
“The cast just isn’t as close as they once were,” a source tells HollywoodLife. “They are all pursuing their own projects, clothing lines, perfume lines and several of them want their own spinoffs. There’s a lot of competition and they all feel like they’re famous enough in their own rights to continue on without the show.”
“Pauly D has been trying to secure his own reality show for a while,” another source tells HollywoodLife. “Mike wants his own show but no one has really wants to go forward with it and Snooki and JWoww were trying to get their own show.”
We think this is a terrible decision. Realistically, the cast is really only good for one thing – ‘Jersey Shore.’ If they quit that, then we believe they are all finished completely.
Just in time for Halloween, a company called E-Poll conducted a survey to find out who gives America the creeps. The poll surveyed 1100 Americans and asked them to rate celebrities based on 100 different possible attributes. The following list indicates what percentage of the sample group checked off “creepy” for each celebrity.
1. Marilyn Manson..69%
2. Casey Anthony…57%
3. O.J. Simpson….56%
4. Spencer Prat….49%
5. Nadya Suleman…41%
6. Charlie Sheen…34%
7. Eliot Spitzer…34%
8. Woody Allen…..31%
9. Tim Burton……31%
10. Jesse James…..30%
Topping the list of creepy celebrities is a man who allegedly had a rib surgically removed in order to perform oral sex on himself (Marilyn Manson). Also on the list are two of America’s most famous accused murderers (Casey Anthony, O.J. Simpson) and a warlock from planet Awesome (Charlie Sheen). For the most part, the list is fairly predictable. The only real surprise is a neurotic film -maker who fell in love with his adopted daughter (Woody Allen). Perhaps that’s not as surprising as one may think.
Surprisingly, none of the cast members from Jersey Shore made the list. (Personally I thought The Situation was a shoe-in for the top spot.) None of the Guidos or Guidettes even broke the the top ten but somehow Eliot Spitzer has a strong hold on seventh spot.
In addition, the same survey also determined which celebrities have the most marketing potential. Of the top ten listed above, Spencer Pratt from The Hills and ‘Octomom’ Nadya Suleman proved to have the least marketing potential, demonstrating that America will gladly watch these idiots but probably wouldn’t purchase a product they endorse.
These statistics are pretty reassuring. Americans show they haven’t lost the ability to think rationally and I agree with them. I would never purchase anything from a psychopath with a frozen sperm fetish. Nor would I buy anything from a delusional moron still caught in a shame spiral after he and his Franken-Bride were last seen on I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here.
Well done, America.
“The bathroom is disgusting and there is this disgusting toothbrush on the counter,” says Pauly. “I’m getting all the nasty hair out of the clippers and used someone’s toothbrush. Anyone dumb enough to leave their toothbrush on this counter deserves it.”
Of course the toothbrush ends up being Mike’s, and he brushes his teeth in front of the guys. The guys end up laughing uncontrollably.
Vinny says, “Part of me feels bad, but then I’m like, ‘Yes! This is awesome!’”
Have you ever wanted to look like Jersey Shore’s Pauly D? Well, here’s your chance. Pauly is coming out with his own line of tanning products.
Pauly and Devoted Creations Inc. are coming out with tanning lotions and sunless products. And Pauly stands to make a few bucks if everything goes to plan as he’s a 50/50 partner in the venture, reports TMZ.
The products will be available in salons starting in two months.
We kind of like Pauly D so we wish him nothing but the best.
The video showcases the participants talking about where they were when 9/11 occurred, and encourages all people to pay tribute to those lost in the attacks.
Below is a first among many other videos that are scheduled to appear throughout the week.
It must have been a simple miscommunication. Pauly D has been quoted as saying, ”I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips.” But now he is saying he likes the show.
In an interview with The Huffington Post, Pauly says, “I never said I was too famous for it,” said Pauly D. “I like the show. I think it’s great. But I just think I’d like to do it a little bit later. Right now I’m on tour with Britney, and I have a lot of other things going on, but it’s a great show, though.”
So you still may get to see Pauly bust a move.
The event is called Fashion’s Night Out, and its the biggest event during Fashion Week. TMZ reports Pauly has agreed to DJ for free as a wedding present to Kim, and he usually gets $40,000 to DJ. And he wasn’t even invited to the wedding!
What a nice guy.
Pauly D from Jersey Shore is apparently one of those people. He thinks TV reality stars should be eligible for the Walk of Fame honor, reports TMZ. He is apparently devastated by the news.
We can understand the Walk of Fame policy on reality stars. Granted these guys and gals are funny, they are not professional entertainers.
Do you think its fair?
“I will do ‘Dancing with the Stars’ when my career dips,” he confessed.
However, that doesn’t mean he doesn’t support Snooki,
“I texted her congratulations about doing ‘Dancing,’ but she texted back ‘am I?’” Pauly tells The Huffington Post.
Be careful there Pauly – fame and fortune doesn’t last forever. If someone is offering you cash to appear on a show, we suggest you grab it.
“Hmmm if they don’t want us to wear those clothes, why make GTL shirts?” DJ Pauly D tweeted Wednesday.
The Situation tweeted, “Thanks #SituationNation for always having my back and you are the best fans in the world! I love you guys!”
A&F is paying a price for going against the Jersey Shore crew. Their stock fell to an all time low yesterday after issuing a statement asking the cast of the reality show not to wear their clothes.
Pauly was obviously intimated and embarrassed, but undoubtedly he had a good time.
You have to give credit to MTV and their amazing lawyers – they do think of everything. Pauly D must be pissed because he recently opened up a t-shirt store on the Jersey Shore called “Dirty Couture Shore Store.” However during filming of Jersey Shore, he can only work for the “Shore Store,” which is a competitor to his new venture.
TMZ reports this was especially embarrassing for Pauly because his store opened up this week, and he couldn’t be there due to his MTV obligations.
We are not marketing experts, but it can’t be good for your brand when you own one t-shirt store, but you actually spend time working for another t-shirt store.
Ah well – show business is a tough business.
The University of Florida is apparently furious that one of their students partied on camera with the ‘Jersey Shore’ crew. The officials who run the study abroad program in Italy, where the show is being filmed, have reportedly given their student an ultimatum; stay away from the cast or be expelled.
The University of Florida sent out an email to students participating in their study abroad program in Italy, stating that “any student who does agree to participate in the filming of the show, or who signs a waiver or legal agreement of any sort with MTV, will be dismissed from the program immediately.”
The email also warned the students that any action deemed potentially embarrassing to the school “will not be tolerated.” The school threatened to contact the student’s parental units to inform them why the school would be kicking them out of the program.
TMZ spoke with Janine Sikes, UF Director of Public Affairs, who said, “Generally speaking, students may participate in activities outside their Study Abroad program as long as they meet the academic and living requirements of that program.”
I mean, if the show doesn’t mention the university at all, why does it matter? I could understand if they didn’t want the cast and crew on their campus, but what students do on their own time is none of their business.
On the plus side, though, this is probably the closest that Snookie, The Situation or DJ Pauly D will ever get to being connected with academics.
