MTV should have kept Jersey Shore in that hideous flop house/ shack thing. At least in that house the cast could be as debauched as they wanted and the wallpaper hid the vomit on the walls. It’s being reported that officials in Italy have revoked previously-issued filming permits for the show. The cast were supposed to start filming in Italy this week, after a week of unrelated delays, but the city of Florence will no longer allow their filming at several historical landmarks. Which is a good thing because stupid old marble doesn’t hide vomit very well. This comes one week after the eight-strong cast bought calculators and worked out that they could get extra sodey-pop and condom money if they held their breaths long enough. Entertainment Weekly speculates that they’ll be earning $100,000 per episode in season four; up from $10,000 per episode for season 2, and around $30,000 per episode for season 3. Locals in Italy don’t want them and producers have been told ‘no filming in bars and no drinking in public.’
Posts under ‘Snooki’
As reported in February, Snooki of MTV’s reality show Jersey Shore tried to trademark her nickname. Snooki was hoping to secure the trademark for use making public appearences and to release a book using the name. It was pointed out that the name was a sound-alike of the name of a children’s book, Snooky [The Underwater Cat]. Seems the US Patent and Trademark Office were handy with Amazon.com too, as on Thursday they decided to reject the application to trademark the term as it sounded too much like one already in existance.
‘Snooki’ is already taken. The name was registered for the Adventures of Snooky; a 2004 children’s book about a cat knocked overboard on a fishing excursion. ‘The terms SNOOKY and SNOOKI are very similar,’ the US Patent and Trademark Office wrote in its trademark refusal, obtained by TheSmokingGun.com. ‘Therefore, given the similarity of marks and identity of goods, there is a likelihood of confusion.’ [Pop Crunch]
Snooki, real name Nicole Polizzi, was arrested today. The reality star was arrested, in Seaside Heights, NJ and according to TMZ she was snatched up by the Seaside Heights popo for disorderly conduct. According to the site, Snooki was partying earlier at a bar doing body shots; the photographs at the links below show her pouring cola into her beer bong and not alcohol. She’s in police custody.
UPDATE: The booking photo of Snooki after her arrest. She’s now released.

The NY Times is making a cottage industry of insulting celebrities. They caught flack on Twitter, January 19, after writing a message mocking then cancer-stricken Michael C. Hall. One day later, they wrote a post about the Golden Globe Awards 2010, claiming Jennifer Aniston, Kate Hudson, and Courteney Cox, had all put on weight. They also wrote a somewhat insulting profile on M.I.A, which resulted in her tweeting the phone number of the author. Now, they’ve done a profile on Snooki from Jersey Shore (♬ One of these things is not like the others… one of these things just doesn’t belong ♬). This profile involved speaking to Snooki multiple times, and photographing the reality star at home with her father. Being welcomed into her home didn’t stop NY Times Sunday Style’s Cathy Horyn writing an insulting 2,000 word profile. Snippets below…
Snooki (Nicole Polizzi) has given a new interview with Steppin’ Out magazine (known to those who’ve ever picked up any other magazine as The Tackiest Piece of Crap Ever, Monthly). In the July 21, 2010 Steppin’ Out issue, for which Snooki also dons the cover, above, the reality star discusses how although her less-famous castmates are high off the hairspray fumes, she’s mellow yellow.
“Myself, Pauly, Vinny and Jenny [JWoww], we’ve all stayed the same,” she says in the new issue of Steppin’ Out magazine. “We’re the closet friends in the house. I trust them with my life… It hasn’t gotten to our heads.”
She continues, “I know the others want the same opportunities that Mike [The Situation] and I get, but we don’t control those things. The media isn’t asking for the others so they can’t really be mad at me.” Noting Pauly D’s rising stature as a DJ and Jenni [JWoww]‘s fashion line, she still concedes, “I can understand why the others might be jealous. They aren’t doing anything, but they should still be happy for me.” [Us]
By ‘discusses’, of course, I mean she shamelessly shills for a company with the most idiotic diet concept I’ve ever heard of. The reality star said on Wednesday that she’s already lost 5 pounds with Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet, and hopes to lose 5 to 10 pounds more. This is after admitting issues with her weight and an eating disorder from her days as a high school cheerleader. This is the second dumbest weight loss secret reveal since Tori Spelling blamed hers on Swine Flu.
“I actually noticed that celebrities were taking Dr. Siegal’s Cookie Diet and I thought, ‘This has got to work,’” she said. The diet. which cuts out breakfast and lunch in favor of the doctor’s specially baked cookies, cuts calories down to 1,000-1,200 a day. “I eat six cookies a day and then I have like chicken for dinner, or fish,” Snooki explained. “Something healthy.” She added that she’s turned her mom onto the diet trend as well. “She lost at least 10 pounds. So I helped my mom out,” Snooki said.
