    Jersey Shore

    DRAMA, disrespect and the eff word. Who watches this show? They are like a bunch of 65 year olds in 20 something bodies. At the end of the day very conservative. I like The Situation the best.

    They are such trash! I saw the one where "Sookie" got decked in the face.
    Don't let them push you around, for every bruise they give, give them five broken bones

    I love it. It is like a car wreck. I see kids like this on Long Island all the time. They would need to stay up nights studying for a urine test.
    I just always worry that young kids see this trash and think normal people hook up 15 minutes after meeting someone.
    I do find it funny that the situation and the problem are always talking about taking care of business but they never seem to be able to deal the deal so to speak.
    regards,

    Finally! I dared not be the first to admit to this cheezy, dirty, tanned, juiced secret pleasure.... I watch it, stunned, with my mouth hanging open.

    I love it. They aren't car wrecks. They're decent. Way more conventional than me.

    Ok, I'm half Italian and I gotta say, there are people like this...for sure, but what happened to showing off our rich history and culture instead of making ourselves look like a bunch of meatheads...At the end of the day, these people act like trash, I agree completely, I can find humor in some of it, because I certainly know people like this but sadly I know many who aren't anything like this and to those who stereotype they are making us look like a major joke...I'm not into Italian guys AT ALL, have to be honest, probably because I grew up with them my whole life and many I knew had SOME of the same attitude traits...I guess I stereotype myself LOL. What I saw in my family was always "Men can do whatever they want, womanize, treat women like garbage, and you still have to show them "respect", because they are males and you have to make excuses for every male in your family...Maybe this can be a wake up call for us out there to see how dumb that attitude is and start bringing our culture back up LOL. I know watching this show frightens the he!! outta me...I don't want people thinking all Italians are like this, cause it's about 50/50 lol.

    I know it's against the rules to say racist things, I"m really not being racist, I don't hate anyone, just saying from my experience and speaking about my own background...Hope I don't offend anyone...

    I'm Italian, too. I don't find them nearly as insulting as Growing Up Gotti was. That, to me, glamorized the entirely wrong segment of the Italian population.

    I think these kids have at least a good sense of humor about themselves, and realize they are something of a cariacuture.

    I lived out east for 6 years and spent 5 summers down the Jersey Shore, til we moved up in the world to Long Island. Back in those olden days (we wore bathing costumes that covered us from neck to ankle), the Shore was pretty wild, but nothing like this. I was quite innocent and unsullied compared to what seems to go on now.

    I definitely see your point about growing up gotti. I remember one episode where Victoria Gotti says something about how it's insulting that when people see her and her kids all they associate them with is the mob and I was like "Um, isn't that EXACTLY what your show is basing itself around and exploiting?!" In general, I don't get extremely offended by shows that tend to stereotype my backgrounds, but I can see how some people may make the argument that if shows were done about other cultures which promoted negative stereotypes, that would never be tolerated (and well it shouldn't be, especially protected groups).

    Still, it's sad that all people seem to talk about in terms of Italian culture is what we always called "greaseballs", pizza and the mob when it is so much more, yes there does tend to be a male dominated theme, but our contributions to art, political thought, philosophy, cuisine, and family is also very rich and often gets over looked for pinky ring wearing macho men without much brains or tact...Yes, some are like that, but please media, balance it out some more!!!!

    Okay, I watched it to see what the fuss was about. They come off more shallow
    than they probably really are. It's lower class than the Real World shows
    and the Jersey Shore looks pretty dumpy. Most shocking to me is that acid
    washed jeans and slashed tee shirts are beck in style and some guy punched
    a little gril in the face. Other than that, it's not as shocking as I had expected.
    What is all the fuss about?

    In all honesty they seem like many Italians I've known and that's not a bad thing. I don't get the guys wearing lip gloss though.

    I didn't mind the lip gloss, it was the black french manicures on the girls that
    confused me.

    I hate to admit it but I've watched every episode of this, lol. They might as well be from a different planet!! I'd love to see them come to Oklahoma, go out to a bar, and act like that, lmao. I watched one the other night where the huge musclebound one, Ronnie, beat the crap out of some guy on the boardwalk-quite entertaining. I have a friend who actually is from that town, Seaside, and said people there don't act like that, well most-all these people are transplants from NY right?
    Snooki cracks me up. Who saw the first episode where she's eating the pickle? It reminded me of that scene in Old School where Andy Dick teaches the girls to um, perform fellatio....Who wants to bet she ends up working for Vivid? LOL

    I've met a lot who act like this too, but many many who don't, especially women...I know lots of Italian families where girls are like so sheltered and such that they would never act trashy like these girls do. Frankly, I feel these are the more "Americanized" ones who didn't grow up with the strict Roman Catholic or family values. And it seems to be even more like this in NYC and the surrounding areas and cities...Don't know why, it's like a subculture of some sort...Not very flattering for the rest of us nevertheless!! But have to admit that, yes, I know many like this, too.

    I think the fuss is that it takes a stereotypical group of people who seem proud of the not-so-flattering stereotypes and act trashy, also you take the abuse of a woman (Was it snooki who got punched in the face?) and rampant casual sex and it's bound to make a stir. I just think these people are icky.

    I took a sneak peek at this show. Afterward, I felt as if I had to a) wash and b) go to confession. I don't normally watch any of the "reality" tv trash that's out there. I'm totally out of the demographic so if I know about it, then you know they had a mad promotional budget. The cast members are cashing in on their 15 min. of fame with good paying appearance gigs. It's scary to see young, shallow, Ooompa Loompa Orange, and unintelligent people make a career out of being a caricature.

    I think that "Snooki" Looks like a mini-me version of Lily Munster from
    the 1960s sitcom The Munsters.

    Okay, since I am Italian and I have a lot of hair, my friend Tiffany bought me a Bump It, which was a joke. Then, I got bored one night...

    Actually I just love the show and actually like the kids. If you are not useless and crazy a bit when you are younger then you squander an opportunity in my opinion.
    Work and family take a lot of options to be an idiot away for a very long time so having one summer of idiocy in your youth should definitely be forgivable!

    After hearing about it SOOO much I watched the marathon of all of the episodes leading up to the finale and I found it to be surprisingly tame! The way everyone was talking about it, I thought there would be kids running around naked and gratuitous sex.

    It honestly was just a bunch of shallow kids acting like kids do. I honestly didn't see any casual sex other than "The situation" having a one night stand one time. Other than that there were just a few make out sessions, nothing any worse than what goes on everywhere in the world!

    I am not an Italian American so I can't speak to the angle of it being insulting and stereotypical, I understand if people feel that way though.

    And lastly I found myself having a huge, gigantic crush on Pauly D. I have no idea why but he really does it for me, don't worry my husband and friends make fun of me relentlessly for it.

    I am with you! The Situation and the Problem (Pauly) talked about sex a lot but I saw nothing really happening. They were always trying "hook up and take care of business" and nothing seemed to ever work out.
    They are like two minor Shakespear characters chasing after the lovers with nothing happening!
    They are just a particular breed of wild , shallow kid. They aren't Rhodes scholars but they aren't bad kids either.
    I wish them all well and I hope they bank come out of this with some money for an ITS marine engine repair course or real estate or cosmotology after their 15 minutes are up.

    It's called JERSEY SHORE for a good reason:
    They look like the ilk you see in Wildwood, NJ.

    ^^WAHAHAHAHAHA! I personally don't watch that show. I've got enough drama in my life as it is, lol.
    I read somewhere on the net where some critic described Snookie as "a turnip turned on it's tip". I had to LOL at that one.
    I am no stickbug, by any stretch of the imagination. However, I also do not parade around in a bathing suit that would end up with me getting arrested for indecent exposure.
    And a ONE PIECE, at that!

    'Gay men on board': Jersey Shore cast return from their shopping trip to find sign ta

    They spend much of their time working out at the gym, tanning and perfecting their hair to make themselves irresistible to the local ‘Guidettes.’
    But it seems someone was having a bit of a joke with the Jersey Shore boys yesterday by taping a gay sign to the back of their SUV.

    Paul 'DJ Pauly D' DelVecchio and cast mate Vinny Guadagnino first noticed the sign when they returned from their shopping trip to see the piece of paper which read: ‘Gay men on board. Gay rights is all we ask.’
    Sign surprise: Paul 'DJ Pauly D' DelVecchio and Vinny Guadagnino return from shopping at the shore to find a gay rights sign taped to the back of the car




    Gay rights: The paper taped to the SUV read: 'Gay men on board. Gay rights that's all we ask!'

    Ronnie Ortiz Magro and Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola had earlier seemed unaware of the sign as they left the vehicle.

    More...




    They, along with the other members of the Jersey Shore gang had been stocking up on groceries at their local store.
    Earlier this year, cast member Ronnie Ortiz Magro found himself in hot water when he was videotaped using homophobic slurs during a brawl.


    Motor mischief: Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola seems unaware of the 'Gay Men on Board sign as they go shopping yesterday




    He was seen calling another bar patron a ‘f****** f***** and a f******* queer.’
    The footage was never aired on MTV and Ronnie later apologised on Twitter.
    ‘I apologise to my fans, In the heat of the moment I said a lot of things I didn't mean and I'm very sorry,’ he tweeted.


    Reunited: Sammi and Ronnie look to have sorted out their problems as they went shopping yesterday

    Ronnie has found himself in more trouble this week when his girlfriend Sammi 'Sweetheart' Giancola walked out of the house after finding out he had been cheating on her.
    But she soon returned and it looked like they were back on track during yesterday’s shopping trip.

    I love Jersey Shore, but I'm pretty sure most of it is contrived. Rumor has it that Ronnie is a huge coke head. He is twitchy, sweaty, and out of control this season.
    I am sad to have to admit that my oldest daughter who is short and very much resembles the Italian side of the family has been dressing like Snookie for years.

    Snooki Fined $500

    BAHAHAHAHA!!! The judge called her a "Lindsay Lohan wannabe."

    I am ashamed to say I watched her on TMZ live......and I never noticed before how many times she fricking touches her hair!!!!! Flips it forward, throws it back, pushes it up.....OMG!!!!!

    But really, all she got was a lousy $500 fine and another day of community service (she supposedly did a whole day last weekend!!!)......but it was sooooooooo excellent to hear the judge call her the "L" word (Lindsay!!!)
