MTV’S “JERSEY SHORE” SEEMS LIKE A SPIN-OFF OF “GROWING UP GOTTI”

jersey-shore-mtv-castcut

We needed something to fill the gap when “Growing Up Gotti” went off the air and now we have it: “Jersey Shore.” MTV put eight twentysomething Italians (four guys and four girls) from the New York area into a summer share at the Jersey shore, equipped with a hot tub and other amenities. It’s walking distance from the beach and bars, so these self-described “guidos” and “guidettes” just party all the time. One of the guys, Pauly D, even LOOKS like a Gotti with his gelled hair, fake tan, and gold jewelry. Like “Growing Up Gotti,” this show also has subtitles because there’s a lot of sloppy diction, but it’s fun to see how this subculture carries on.

    The following is admittedly a gross statement: If a sample were ever taken from them and put in a petri dish……wow, watch the germs and bacteria develop.

    It’ll be cancelled soon. All the sponsers are pulling out and the Italians are up in arms over this horrible show that shows Italians in sterotypical and horrible light.

    I watched a few minutes, which was hard to do, just to see what all the controvery was over, and agree this show should be canceled ASAP!! All these young people act like retarded whores!!

    Have all the writers left Hollywood permanently? All that ever seems to be on are these brain dead reality shows

    What is worse, the fact that this show perpetuates an awful ethnic stereo-type, or the fact that everyone one discusses it with says that it is a perfect example of how stereo-types have some, if not 100%, truth to them?

    This show is hideous and these people are on the low slope of the bell curve.

    Even though,I am black and it seems like white people are darker then me and that is the reason this show really turns me off.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT: LOOK WHO’S NOT TALKING ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN !
    |

    We love every one of Harvey Weinstein’s female accusers – but what about the actresses who AREN’T talking? One actress who won an Oscar in the 90’s has been CONSPICUOUSLY SILENT about the casting couch scandal. It’s because SHE has had a long-term “arrangement” with Harvey in which she traded sex for showbiz favors and it must have been awful, but her career prospered. Now this A-lister is horrified at the prospect of being found out! And, guess what – she’s NOT the only one who’s conspicuously silent!
    Any guesses?
