According to reports, the wild night of drinking was so out of hand that MTV decided to cut the footage from the show’s second season and that’s saying quite a bit considering the type of partying they’ve aired on various shows, including Jersey Shore in the past.
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, star of the hit MTV reality TV series Jersey Shore has revealed in the Sept. 27 edition of OK! Magazine that she has battled an eating disorder for much of her life.
According to the reality TV star, her disorder reached a dangerous peak when she became very thin in high school while battling a mixture of bulimia and anorexia that took her body weight to just 80 pounds.
Snooki says of her disorder at the time:
“I would go into the nurse’s office every day and I would weigh myself. When [the school nurse] realized that I hit 80lbs she was like ‘This isn’t good.’”
The men of Jersey Shore each carry their own signature style, heck Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino has even turned that style into a fashion business, but when GQ Magazine came calling they convinced the boys to give up their styles for a day with a front cover and photo spread makeover.
The issue featured Pauly with a new hairstyle and offers some “words of advice” from the guys…barf. Here’s some of that “advice.”
Vinny: “I used to be a trainer, and 90 percent of the people who use trainers are women and old people. But it can be good—I used to train other trainers.”
DJ Pauly D: “It was my birthday this weekend, and these girls put cake on my body and ate it off. One girl said, “You have the nicest chest I ever ate cake off.” I got pictures to prove it. I’ll send ‘em to you.”
Here’s the GQ makeover spread:
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino may be a household name among reality TV fans and sure he’s one of the highest paid reality TV stars of all time, with earnings expected to top $5 million by the end of 2010, but apparently his “The Situation” nickname mixed with his fame wasn’t enough for him to be granted a trademark on his popular name.
The US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) rejected Mike’s request for “The Situation” name. According to TheSmokingGun.com Sorrentino hoped to trademark the name and then release a T-Shirt line.
According to USPTO, a trademark that was too similar to his own was issued to a Memphis-based clothing and shoe line in 2009.
What does being an annoying Guido get you for your troubles? If your “The Situation” from MTV’s hit show Jersey Shore it gets you a Bentley.
Okay, so it gets you a used 2008 Bentley coupe, not a newer model, but the $100,000 price tag is still an impressive amount of money to drop on a vehicle when you’re only making $40,000 an episode on a show that’s sure to lose it’s appeal soon enough.
