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???

“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.

DJ Pauly D gets Lawsuit of 4 Million

Paul Lis of South Windsor, CT, claims to have spent four decades building a reputation as “DJ Paulie,” before DelVecchio began calling himself “DJ Pauly D” on television.

“He formally trademarked the name ‘DJ Paulie’ and then came the Jersey Shore, which basically wiped him off the face of the map,” attorney Jose M. Rojas told the New York Post‘s NewsCore.

[adsense336x280]

The lawsuit, filed in US District Court in Hartford, asks for $4 million from MTV, Pauly D, and a list of his other employers, including The Palms Las Vegas, where he works as a paid DJ.

4 Cast Members Tried to Walk Off

Jersey Shore Season 5 started production in Seaside Heights just two weeks ago and already Vinny and Mike ‘The Situation’ have stormed out of the house. Vinny was gone for about a week and was only recently convinced to return by his co-stars. The Situation reportedly got so fed up he also walked out, threatening to quit the show for good. He, too, has since returned. MTV has since issued a threat to fire any cast member that walk out.

Jersey Shore Cast Members to be Fired if they Walk

Sources connected with production tell TMZ, the network is serious this time: if another cast member tries to walk off the show … that person will be fired, and the remainder of his or her contract will be terminated. No exceptions.

We’re told it’s all a power play. With two cast members nearly jumping ship in the same week, MTV wants to reassert some authority … and show the cast who’s boss once and for all.

Jersey Shore Season 4 Official Cast Photo

With less than a month until the August 4 premiere, MTV has released the official season 4 cast photo of the Jersey Shore cast!

In the above shot, the cast is all glammed-up for a late-night run through the streets of Florence, Italy where they filmed the fourth season from May to June.

As reported, the cast only got a one week break before they began filming the fifth season back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey late last month. The new season will debut Aug. 4 on MTV at 10/9c.

Renaissance Art given Jersey Shore Makeover

Leonardo da Vinci’s Mona Lisa was given a pair of diamante encrusted sunglasses, similar to those favoured by Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi, the diminutive star of the reality show which chronicles the lives of a group of party-loving, heavy-drinking New Jersey natives.

Other works that feature in the preview of the next season include Michelangelo’s Creation of Adam from the Sistine Chapel, which has been altered to show God and Adam bumping fists.

Another is Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, in which Venus has been dressed in some furry boots and a knock-off designer handbag, featuring a voice over asking, “How do you say sl*t in Italian? Because I’m not that.”
