The Situation and Dancing with the Stars?!

July 30, 2010

Jersey Shore Cast Season 2We have to give a special thanks to Tim and My Mom Calls Me George on Cincinnati’s KISS 107.1 for alerting us to this gem of information, rumors have been swirling rampant lately that Mike “The Situation” has inflated his ego so that it is even bigger than an unknown 29 year old who likes to refer to part of his anatomy as “The Situation.”

As much as we love him, and the juiciness he adds to the Jersey Shore cast, and as much as we can’t blame him for banking the name in as many different ways as possible (Sitch, honey, you tried the rap route…let’s let that one die), we have to admit he is kind of an ass.

This is the guy who facilitated Snooki getting punched in the face, and then creeped on some chicks as Vinny and JWoww helped as she cried in the bathroom, after all.

After last night’s much-debated premiere — a lot of the blogosphere thinks the magic has worn off, whereas we’ll give it at least two more episodes to entertain us past Angelina being abso-fricken-lutely insane and JWoww hating on her and Sammi; hell, if we could see more drunk Ronnie with grenades and landmines, we’d be happy — it’ll be interesting to see the general public’s reaction the Sitch and the rest of the gang, who are currently filming Season Three in Seaside Heights.

But, even if Season Two isn’t as huge as the phenomenon that was the first season, the Sitch could be back on our TV’s very soon on another reality television show – DANCING WITH THE STARS.

Now, we here at Hairpoof aren’t huge reality TV fans. We can do without The Bachelor/ette, Survivor, even the Real World, but Dancing With the Stars is amazing. We’d love to see the Sitch two-stepping with Cheryl Burke or Kym Johnson, and we’re sure the Sitch would love to cling to those scantily clad women. Mike’s manager has shot down the rumors saying they have no plans for the show at this time, but TMZ reports that the deadline for negotiations on the next season of DWTS is Monday, so we should know by then.

The Situation drops a rap tune

June 16, 2010

The Situation is now a rapper. That’s about all we can say about that — you really just need to listen to the song and make your own judgements.

The sure to be mocked classic hits iTunes next week, but thanks to HollywoodGossip and TMZ, you can grab a sneak peek right here.

Snooki and Emilio are no more

April 20, 2010

Snooki and Emilio break up Well, we can all unfollow @Jealous1sEnV (aka Snooki’s former guido love Emilio) on Twitter.

Sources, like TMZ (and reposted by MTV themselves), say our favorite poofed Jersey Shore cast member is now single after dearest Emilio tried out for the Real World.

Snooki, who was reportedly madly in love with Emilio, was hearing that he might not have been as into her as he was into her fame and MTV connections.

TMZ received this confirmation from Emilio: (try not to judge his poor grammar…the fake tan probably got to his brain)

All i kno is she was upset i tried out fornreal world nd left me a message sayin im single. Next i kno i wake up [Monday] morning and facebook says im single.

Rumors are also surfacing that Emilio cheated on his lady love who is currently filming Season Two of her hit show in Miami, but Emilio took to his Twitter to say that those mumblings are false saying, “I’m no Jesse James.”

His buddy @DicksCotton is also saying Emilio isn’t a cheater:

@jealous1sEnV slept on my couch night of alleged cheating on @Sn00ki that gossip sites r sayin. rumor is false!

We assume that means that the person that runs the @DicksCotton site is friends with Emilio and not a pair of pants themselves, but who knows.

Wanna sleep with the Situation in South Beach?

April 13, 2010
Snooki, Angelina and the Situation hit South Beach for Jersey Shore Season Two

Don't worry Snooks, the Situation won't be bringing home any grenades or hippos to attack you this season - except for maybe Angelina

Well, I hope the MTV’s producers find you attractive. Rumor has it that Jersey Shore Season Two will have a marked difference from the first one – no grenades allowed.

Half the fun of last season was seeing Pauly D try to take the grenade and then running swiftly in the other direction, leaving Mike on his own with his hottie and her “unattractive” friend. And when the grenade reappeared in the Shore house with the hippo she attacked Snooki.

This year, however, TMZ is reporting that only hot girls will be allowed to go home with the boys.

If you’re looking to do a different kind of sleeping with the Situation (or rather, sleeping where he did) you have more of a shot – if you have $2,000.

Much like prices sky-rocketed on the original Shore house in Seaside Heights (to $6,500 a night!), hotel management at Miami’s Metropole Hotel South Beach plan to up their prices on the custom-designed suite where Sammi and Ronnie may or may not be smushing.

While it’s been said that the MTV crew is getting the rooms for a measly $250 a night – no doubt they expect to make back some of the money they could be making through exposure – Alan Lieberman, who owns the hotel with his son, Nathan, told the Miami Herald that he plans to offer the room to future renters at an inflated rate of $2,000 a night.

And he doesn’t think anyone would ever rent the rooms at that price.

A word of advice to Lieberman: The original house is going for $6,500 a night; there are vacation packages in the Jersey Shore suites in Atlantic City going for $4250. I’m pretty sure you’re going to get a great ROI on a $2000 a night room just by saying things like “Pauly D kept his hair gel here,” “Angelina whined about how hard her life is here,” “The Situation made surf and turf right here.”

Hell, he should probably up the price! It’s too rich for our blood,  but I’m sure there are some people out there who wouldn’t mind shelling out the cash to stay in a piece of pop culture history.

JERSEY SHORE JUMPS THE SHARK!!

April 7, 2010
Angelina in Miami for Jersey Shore Season Two

Cue our well-intentioned fan-girl yell of “Noooooooooooooooo!”

Perez Hilton AND TMZ are reporting that the non-cast member ANGELINA has RETURNED for SEASON TWO! Nooooooo!

Cast members descended on Miami yesterday to begin filming after two (we assume) very long car trips in which the stars were separated by sex. Snooki and JWoww were in one car while Pauly D and the Situation were in another. No word on how Ronnie, Vinny or Sammi got there. And then, out of nowhere, ANGE-Fricken-LINA arrived with luggage in tow – apparently in actually suitcases this time instead of garbage bags.

This pisses us off to no end. Season two will not be nearly as epic as last season based solely on the fact that she’ll be there.

We’ve also seen our first glimpses of the awkwardness that will occur this season. Last season, a group of 8 unknowns descended on Seaside Heights. They partied, loved and fought other vacationers and locals and no one really knew who they were. This season, 7 high profile cast members (and one bitch) are walking the streets of Miami and everyone knows their name. Perez Hilton posted pics of Snooki, Pauly D and Mike walking the streets with some definite creepers in the background. And not the good type of creepers that Ronnie likens himself to … no, these were amatuer paparazzi capturing every second of the Sitch walking in his grey wifebeater and OchoCinco Reebok shoes (I hear they’re called ZigTechs…).

It’ll be an entirely different atmosphere in Season Two. Kind of like Cheers, where everyone knows their names…

Anticipating that awkwardness, MTV is trying to be proactive in keeping the Jersey Shore tide alive by sending out casting calls for “tanned and toned fist pumpers” who could “dominate the gym, tear up the dance floor and rule the bedroom.” Those that apply have to be over 21 but appear to be under the age of 30…In other words, Season Two hasn’t even been filmed yet and our dear cast is going to get replaced in Season Three!

WTF MTV. WTF! Angelina should never have been offered the Olive Branch. She burned her bridges in episode two and you should have left her well enough alone. The show ruined her freaking life and the cast hates her (all straight from her own mouth), so why would you ever ever think about bringing her back. And on top of that you’re going to replace our beloved cast?! Sure, Season Two won’t have the same feel as Season One, but Season Three sure as hell won’t work with a new cast.

Honestly MTV, why did you ditch Road Rules in favor of strictly doing Real World/Road Rules Challenges? BECAUSE NO ONE CARED about new Road Rules people (actually, that’s a complete lie. I totally miss Road Rules) and only want to see Kenny, Wes, Coral and Tonya try to kill each other while they’re wasted and then have to work together on a ridiculous challenge like “Mexican Blanket Rolling” the next day. Shame on you MTV!

(Side note: How do I sign up for the job of coming up with what challenges the cast will do? I want to sit around a cushy studio in Times Square and say things like “let’s have them roll down a beach in blankets….wait for it…Mexican blankets!” or “how about we have them sit on a block of ice in speedos and bikinis and slide across the floor!)

Filming begins on Jersey Shore Season Two!

March 22, 2010

Though you wouldn’t know it from their Twitter feeds which are as ambiguous about location as ver, rumor has it that the Jersey Shore cast has landed in Miami to start filming Season Two!

TMZ reported yesterday that the cast was told they’d definitely be headed to South Beach sometime this week. Camera crews reportedly descended on our favorite guido’s homes to film the pre-flight packing routine just as they did last season (footage of which was seen on ‘Before the Shore’).

There’s no word on whether or not Pauly D tried to pack his tanning bed for the flight from NJ to FL. Hopefully, MTV preempted that by providing an in-house salon – because, let’s face it, they would have to put 7 beds in the house or else we’d be watching footage of the cast standing in line waiting their turn under the lights.

Also, did you guys catch MTV’s Fist Pumpin’ Spring Break special with Pauly, Snooki and the Situation? We got to see a bit of their GTL routine and learned that Pauly and the Sitch don’t really know how to do laundry at a laundromat.

We also learned that Snooki and Pauly D supposedly hooked up on their last night in the shore house…though that seems like a bit of a ploy to snag viewers than the truth. If it’s true, Snooki got around that night as we saw her making out with the Sitch in the hot tub in the season one finale…why didn’t we see her and Pauly D? (Or for that matter, why didn’t the Sitch see her with Pauly seeing as how they roomed together?)

It could have happened though. Afterall, Pauly did leave us with this gem of a quote from episode 2:

In a weird Snookers world, like me and Snookers would make the best, like, little guidos and guidettes, little poofs and blow-outs on our little kids.

Ronnie Magro Uses Homophobic Terms

February 16, 2010

Juiced up JS cast member Ronnie is in the news again, and once again he’s not being shown in a favorable light. A couple of weeks ago we reported that Ronnie was in a bit of a scrap after using a racial slur on Twitter to refer to Vinny.

This time, he’s being called out for using homophobic language in regards to one of the men he fought on the Seaside Heights boardwalk.

On the show, some fancy editing made it seem like the bar patron was obnoxiously following Sammi and Ronnie as they walked home after a night out. The man continuously taunted the couple and Sammi began to verbally spar with the man’s girlfriend. Ronnie told Sammi to stop but the man decided to get in her face which prompted Ronnie to step up and tell him to get back before the first punch was thrown. In essence, the episode made it seem like Sammi was to blame for the escalation from annoying heckling to an all-out fight which Pauly D and the Situation flew out the door of the beach house to join.

However, TMZ recently learned that what aired was not the full story. It turns out that there is footage of Ronnie before the fight taunting the man right back and using homophopic terms such as “f**got” and “queer.”

The terms are obviously socially unacceptable and derogatory in the context in which he used them, but the production company who filmed the first season says that Ronnie was never cruel to the few members of the production staff who were gay.

That being said, there is a major disconnect when a person respects, or is said to respect, persons from the LGBTQ community and those that find it socially acceptable to use terms which are negative and demeaning to that same community.

To risk getting a little preachy here: At some point in the past two decades, the word gay took on a new meaning and teenagers and young adults began to use it to mean “lame” or “stupid.” While we here at Hairpoof don’t condone its usage as such, we do admit that all of us are guilty of using the term as such. But we’ve also noticed a new word cropping up in the pre-teen and teenage lexicon and it happens to be one of the terms Ronnie used — “f**got.”

Recently, one of Hairpoof’s writers was in the company of a 15, a 13 and a 10 year old. Things were going about as you’d expect when in the company of people younger than you until the word “f*g” started flying, and suddenly it was everywhere. “Those shoes are f**gy.” “You look like such a f*g.” “You’re a f**got.” “That situation made him seem like a f*g.” “He’s definitely a f**got.”

We’re sorry, but when the hell did using that term become “cool” for children to use? We can’t remember a time when we ever used that term to refer to how someone or something looks, acts or behaves.

Call us prudes, but that is incredibly offensive.

And then the kicker. The 15, 13 and 10-year-olds began talking about Jersey Shore. Strangely (to us at least), the 15-year-old was not the one that watched the first season, but the 13 and 10-year-old could recite quotations. And all of a sudden they began talking about Ronnie getting into fights and how he’s awesome.

Forgive us for giving a bit of detail on the topic to get to the main point, but Ronnie is a role model for better or for worse. And these children are already using socially unacceptable terms to refer to other people and things. Words which there is video of Ronnie using as well.

Now, we understand that Ronnie is a grown man and can make his own decisions as to what words and terms he deems unacceptable to use. We don’t fault him for having different values than us here at Hairpoof, and we actually encourage discussion on different value systems to create a dialogue in which both sides of an issue can grow and understand differing points of view. But there is a strange and somewhat scary phenomenon going on, at least among three teenagers we’ve associated with, in which more derogatory homophobic terms are coming into popular use.

We feel helpless to stop it as others will always make their own decisions and we don’t believe in censorship. But we ask that you at least think of what impact your words can have on others before you speak.
