Happy Jersday! New Season Premieres Tonight…Jersey does South Africa…AND Deena Making an Appearance in Pittsburgh!

5 Jan

Happy Jersday!

 

Season 5 of MTV’s Jersey Shore premieres tonight.

Twitter is abuzz with anticipation of the wildly popular reality show returning for its newest season.

In other Jersey Shore news, the next season is reportedly going to be filmed in SOUTH AFRICA!

Also — cast member Deena Nicole will be making an appearance here in Pittsburgh at World of Wheels on Saturday, January 28th, 2012 from 1pm-5pm.

The World of Wheels will be held at the David L. Lawrence Center in Pittsburgh on January 27-29.

Hopefully, Deena is on her best behavior….

Psssttt…rumor has it that Snooki may be getting her own spin-off. That being said, other Jersey Shore cast members have also been rumored to be involved in spinoff projects; but none yet have ever come to fruition.

Will the Real New Jersey Please Stand Up?

10 Sep

The Real Housewives of New Jersey. Jersey Shore. Jerseylicious.

These are just a few (yes, there’s more!) of the “gotta-love-’em” trashy reality TV shows out there that are giving the Garden State a bad name.

I saw Zach Braff – of Scrubs and Garden State fame – on E’s “The Daily 10” last night, lamenting this very fact, and mourning the loss of his home state’s reputation.

Now, I don’t know much about Jersey to begin with, but, if there were a handful of  shows on TV right now making Pittsburgh “trendy” for ALL THE WRONG REASONS, wouldn’t you all be upset?  I kind of feel bad for Jerseyites.

As Braff put it, one can’t exactly say that they spent a lovely weekend at the Jersey Shore without some GTL, Snooki, or fist-pumping reference.  (Though, could you say that before the MTV show? I don’t know. As I said, I know nothing about NJ. This isn’t my being rude, it is just unfamiliar territory for me.)

I mean, are ALL housewives in NJ table-flipping, hair-extension pulling, faux-drag drama queens like the ladies that I love to hate love…on the Real Housewives of New Jersey?

Of course not!

My question, though, is why do they all like spray tans so much? And the makeup? I mean TONS and TONS of makeup? Overkill of animal prints? Big hair? (Hello, Tracy, Olivia, Gatsby Salon staff! You certainly ARE Jerseylicious!) And the TEMPERS! Cat-fights left and right, girls hitting guys, guys hitting girls, table flipping, etc. etc….This CAN’T be all of Jersey.  (Just like all of Pittsburgh isn’t mullets………..)

I DO realize that they’re putting these people on TV for ratings. (And for that, I am thankful!) I’m on the side of people that reside in Jersey who have actual class and taste.

I mean, trust me, Pennsylvania gets a bad rap sometimes, too. Have you SEEN the “Pennsylvania Boys” video spoof of Katy Perry’s “California Gurls?”  Cut me a BREAK. Hello, embarrassing.

So, I want to hear from the normal people from Dirty Jersey  the lovely Garden State because as much as I love these people and these shows (and trust me, I do – my DVR doesn’t lie!) I feel as though the real New Jersey needs to stand up for itself!

Here’s a hug from Pittsburgh.

(And a fist pump for good measure.)
