JWOWW singled out by TSA Officer

JWOWW was recently at a club called The Hub in Fargo, North Dakota. As she was leaving the city at Fargo’s Hector International Airport, she says that it was “odd” and deliberate that a TSA officer pointed at her while she was getting coffee. She also says that she was “treated like a crimial” by TSA officers and received a pat down.

Here’s what JWOWW Tweeted:

Has anyone got “randomly selected” while walking on the plane and asked to “come with them” to be additionally searched? I wasn’t randomly selected cuz I saw the tsa there pointing at me while I was getting a coffee 15 min prior

I’ve been patted down a bunch n don’t mind but after I’m getting on a plane seems odd and deliberate to me. Hate when people abuse authority

Jersey Shore cast in Las Vegas

Jersey Shore cast member, DJ Pauly D was at GhostBar DayClub at the Palms on Saturday. And what would a party be without a stuffed pinata that resembles Pauly D, complete with his signature hairstyle. Among those at the party was 2010 Miss USA Rima Fakih.

Hopefully party goers at DJ Pauly D’s party had a great time because the Manny Pacquiao vs Juan Manuel Marquez boxing fight at nearby MGM Grand Garden was a complete disappointment. Can you believe they are already discussing a follow-up fight to settle, once and for all, the winner.

That aside, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Vinny Guadagnino’s birthday celebrations are set to also take place is Las Vegas.

Jersey Shore Ruining State Reputation

New Jersey is a breeding ground for tanned, aggressive, and rowdy 20-somethings.

It sounds like a joke, but people in the Jersey Shore viewing demographic (roughly ages 12 to 30) think the state is comprised solely of beaches, gyms, tanning salons, laundromats and nightclubs. This perception is a direct result of JWoww and her cronies and undermines the scenic beauty of our state…

[adsense336x280]

If an embarrassing reality show was the only problem NJ had, it wouldn’t be such a big deal. Unfortunately we’re already referred to as “the armpit of the country” and constantly have to deal with the repercussions of being so close to New York without actually being New York. Lately, every sentence about the state includes either a reference to “GTLing” or a wisecrack about the governor who is constantly finding himself in goofy and awkward predicaments. (Like stealing helicopters for little league games and taking strange pictures.)

Jersey Shore makes us look worse than we already do …

Academic Study on Jersey Shore

David Showalter, a student at University of Chicago, is moving forward with the first Conference on Jersey Short Studies set for October 28th. The conference so far has more than 700 attendees.

“Jersey Shore is a remarkably rich cultural text and artifact, and the conference will take advantage of the resources it offers” he said.

[adsense336x280]

The National Italian American Foundation (NIAF), however, doesn’t like Jersey Shore: “Let the characters/producers/writers consider the day when they have children,” Mr. Marino (executive director at NIAF) said. “Is this what they want their kids to see: mommy getting punched in the face?”

“works that portray what many would consider bad behavior – have always been popular, whether in theater, television, film, literature, or any other artistic genre,” Mr. Showalter said. “People have long enjoyed watching others do vulgar, embarrassing and ill-considered things.”

“It’s like a car wreck,” Mr. Marino said. “Everyone stops to look at the carnage.”

Producer SallyAnn Solsano

MTV Jersey Shore producer SallyAnn Solsano describes herself as a Guidette. She is part of the reason behind Jersey Shore’s success according to an article by Hollywood Reporter:

Five feet tall, bristling with energy, a human can of crackling jokes and expletives like fireworks, “Jersey’s” executive producer paces back and forth in a crevice like anteroom, tireless though she has slept only 27 minutes in the past 24 hours.

[adsense336x280]

…lightning-fast in her sneakers, making sure every moment is captured on tape as the cast scatters like billiard balls, one dragging a plastic water bottle that’s been punctured by her heel, until Snooki collapses on the sidewalk in a maelstrom of tears.

“We got it,” Salsano exults. “We got the whole f—n’ thing!”

Poll Jersey Shore on Image of New Jersey

A nationwide poll of 711 adults was conducted to determine if MTV’s Jersey Shore has a negative impact on the image of Jersey Shore itself. New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is not a fan of the show and said a year ago that the show “takes a bunch of New Yorkers, drops them at the Jersey Shore and tries to make America feel like this is New Jersey.” Wait! Gov. Chris Christie is commenting about people giving New Jersey a bad image???

[adsense336x280]

“The show isn’t hurting the nation’s view of the state,” said Peter Woolley, director of the poll. “In fact, it may be promoting one of the state’s best features — not Snooki, but the shore itself. It seems to me viewers are looking past The Situation to the shore scene itself.”

The poll found that 43 percent of those who have seen the show have a favorable opinion of New Jersey, while 41 percent who’ve never seen it also think New Jersey is great.

Financial Planning for Jersey Shore Cast

The Wall Street Journal puts out some great articles (from time to time). Below are excerpts from an article about giving financial planning to the cast members of Jersey Shore. Clearly, not a journalistic piece.  Why is someone at The Wall Street Journal writing about Jersey Shore? The only advice the cast needs is regarding Gyms, Tanning, and Laundry.  Here’s some of the “financial advice” given:

[adsense336x280]

Paully D – Young man, with your $50,000 a night DJ gigs, you’re actually the castmate I am least concerned about.   I’d recommend against a Roth IRA as you are likely making more today than you ever will again, pay the taxes later at a lower income rate.

Situation – I’m not going to sugarcoat this, Mike, here’s the situation:  As a 46-year-old man playing a 25-year-old on TV, your career prospects aren’t particularly bright.  Only one other actor has been able to pull this off, Luke Perry, who was cast as a high schooler on Beverly Hills 90210 at the age of 41.  But Luke wasn’t smart with his money, that’s why you see him wrestling with electric eels in original movies on the SciFi Channel at 3 in the morning.  I advise you to put your lottery winnings from being on the show into an irrevocable trust that pays you a stipend each month.  You’ll get access to the principle in the event of your 50th birthday or a life-threatening piercing accident, whichever happens first.

Snooki – While scientists have been unable to determine the median life expectancy of a Snooki, we should assume and plan for at least a few decades of longevity.  With that in mind, the key here is to avoid making any investments that actually require your time or attention or (gasp) expertise.  Snooki, this means no investment properties and no restaurants or bars.  Stick with a more passive investment approach, I’d recommend an 80/20 stock/bond mix held in an account that you’ll forget you have access to.  And by the way, Planet Earth called – it asked if you’d please put some underwear on.

J-Woww – As your financial adviser, I am chiefly concerned with your interest rate risk.  Meaning, our rate of interest in you is sure to decline from this point forward.  Please keep in mind that your surgical “alterations” are, in fact, depreciating assets.  That said, we won’t be able to write them off against short or long term capital gains.  My advice is to have Viacom set up a Health Savings Account (HSA) for you.  You’ll be contributing pre-tax dollars each year and can begin accumulating the warchest you’ll need for tattoo removal, lower back pain etc.  I’m happy to discuss this all with you privately, over drinks, so let me know what your schedule looks like.

GQ Magazine Jersey Shore No19 Worst Dressed

GQ magazine has named Jersey Shore as the No. 19 on its “40 Worst Dressed Cities.”

Quick word association game. We give you a name and you tell us the Axe grooming product it brings to mind: DJ Pauly D? That’s right, Excite Deodorant Bodyspray. Vinny? Tough one: Thai Massage Shower Gel. Ronnie… Yes, Dark Temptation Anti-Perspirant and Deodorant.

[adsense336x280]

The Situation is this, folks: NOBODY grills cheese like they do each summer at the JerZee Showoah. Do we even need to explain? Your shorts are past your ankles, which makes them, well, pants. Except they’ve got enough rhinestones on them to make them, well, a tiara. Except, you’re not a 4-year-old girl playing princess, you’re a 24-year-old a guy named Vito who just did seventy diamond-hand pushups in the bathroom of da club. And before you left your parents’ house this evening you shaved your tribal-tatted arms so as to “unholster your beach guns to maximum effect.” You’re also wearing a tight T-shirt that reads ‘D-Ball, Breakfast of Champions,’ your hair reflects the sun, and you smell like Heat Igniting Citrus 2-in-1 Shampoo and Conditioner.
