Snooki & Jwoww: Lorenzo’s Coming!

MTV Snooki & Jwoww

Really, I tell myself I shouldn’t be watching another Jersey Shore spinoff, especially now that the entire world has given up on them. But I have to be honest, I can’t get enough of Snooki and Jionni! They are so cute together, Snooki looks even cuter pregnant, and Jionni is the most amazing man ever. Every meatball deserves their own Jionni. Yep, I said it.

Let’s just take in that only a few years ago Snooki was living with her parents, driving a ’95 beat up Honda civic,orange, and desperately in search of a man. I mean she almost hooked up with that guy that threw up over himself…come on! Now look at her, she’s driving a Range Rover, she lives in a nice big home with her amazing fiancee and more importantly…amazing future mother-in-law. Girl definitely hit the jackpot.

On last night’s episode, Snooki is very pregnant and hormonal. She breaks down a few times, frusturated over the fact that she’s big and uncomfortable. Jionni to the rescue, this man is amazing, he has that kind of cheesy but cute sense of humour that will put a smile on any girls face. Jionni and Snooki are shacked up at Jionni’s parents’ house- which is a beauty. They have the entire basement to themselves…and baby Lorenzo has another swanky room upstairs for when his parents want a night alone.

Let’s not forget the other half of the show- Jenni and Roger. Jenni got lucky to…but she’s not as fun to watch. Anyways, Jenni and Roger are doing their thang…trying to get engaged but Roger is skeptical. We know that they’re engaged, so it will be interesting to see how the proposal went down on camera.

Speaking of camera’s, I don’t know how Snooki was about to give birth while the cameras were in the room with her. Well I know how, if the pay cheque is big enough anything is possible. And if a Kardashian can do it, anyone can. Snooki started ‘leaking’ in her bed, Jionni to the rescue again. They called the doctor and he told her to wait the night out and see if she’s still leaking in the morning. The situation stayed the same all night, in the morning they went to see their doctor and he said it looked like she was going to give birth in the next 48 hours. A few hours later Snooki is heading to the hospital…and Lorenzo is on his way!

Jionni was recording the whole thing, it was so cute when Snooki turned the camera on him, he totally looked like he was going to cry! Love him. Jenni and Roger forgot about their workout and rushed to be by Snooki’s side.

Stay tuned for next week’s episode when Lorenzo bring the party to the hospital room.

 

MTV’s Washington Heights

WashingtonHeightsLogoThese days, it seems like every television show spawns a reality show, and most often than not they’re pretty damn successful. After The O.C gained a huge fan base, MTV decided to make Laguna Beach:The Real Orange County…as if The O.C wasn’t real! It totally was! After Laguna Beach there was The Hills, which was sort of like the real-life Sex and the City minus the city…but it wasn’t long until they added ‘The City’ in the sequel. Then we have the entire Real Housewives franchise which was obviously developed from the highly successful Desperate Housewives. Get where I’m going with this?

Now there’s a show on MTV called Washington Heights, a show about a group of young people living their lives and trying to make something of themselves. The look and feel is exactly like HBO’s short lived series How To Make It In America which was actually a really good show. The characters are all young, relateable in their 20s,stylish residents of the predominantly Dominican neighborhood of Washington Heights, New York.

Frankie and Ludwin

There’s a lot of flavour and a whole lot of drama that goes with living in the Heights, these kids have a really cool East Coast feel about them, some of them are working hard and some are hardly working. Either way, they all look good doing it and I think Washington Heights will be the next big thang on MTV.

Washington Heights airs Wednesday nights on MTV.

Snooki and JWOWW:I’m Bored

I could barely get myself to watch the entire 25 minutes of this week’s Snooki and JWOWW. The pair head to Cancun with their two best friends for Spring Break, but Snooki realizes her priorities are all ‘messed up’ and just wants to go home. Snooki doesn’t enjoy herself- obviously because she can’t drink and take shots like the other girls. I hate to say it but Snooki isn’t that funny when she’s not intoxicated, and now that she’s pregnant she’s even more moody and freaks out on Jenni all the time!

Jenni has another explosive fight with Roger on their last day in Cancun. She had told him they were returning Sunday, so he made plans-with Jionni on Saturday night. Now that their flight plans changed, she would be coming back Saturday and was furious with him for making plans. She sounded completely insane, Roger kept calling her insecure, and she refused to listen to him. She’s got some serious control issues, and it’s so annoying to watch her have the same argument every week. She constantly blames everything on Roger, meanwhile he hasn’t done anything wrong.

When they get home Snooki calls Jionni and finds out where they’re going- I guess some club down at the Shore. It’s just like they are pulling at anything to create drama or create an issue, and it’s just really boring at this point. They go to a cooking class which was sort of funny, but Snooki just isn’t the same anymore. The next morning Snooki checks Twitter to find out Jionni was seen taking pictures with random girls. This apparently gets Snooki jealous, which she hasn’t been up to this point, she’s always been okay with Jionni going out without her- because she trusts him. Instead she freaks out, calls him and tells him he’s not ready to be a father or a husband. It was the most ridiculous fight ever- he yells back at her and tells her maybe she’s not ready to be a mom, and she starts crying and hands up on him. Like really?

I’m actually dreading the new season of Jersey Shore- then again there are 7 other crazies who can keep us entertained.

 

 

Snooki & JWOWW: Chocolate Nuts

After another brutal fight with Roger for apparently lying to him, Jenni decides to give their relationship another chance by letting/begging Roger to come by for the weekend so the cast can do the double date thing. It seems like most of the show is Snooki and Jwoww with their better halves- Jionni and Roger! Not that we’re complaining, the foursome make for an entertaining crew, especially when Snooki decides to take everyone to the drag show!

After all it is New York City, so why wouldn’t you want drag queens dancing around while you’re eating dinner? Snooki and Jenni take the boys to a night out on the town, but when ‘Chocolate’ asks Jionni if he likes…nuts with his chocolate…the boys realize how much trouble they’re in. Obviously, the dancers bring the boys onto the stage and end up giving them lap dances. Jionni was sweating up a storm, and Roger seemed like he was enjoying it!

Later that weekend, Jionni organizes an engagement dinner for him and Snooki, inviting her family as well as Roger and Jenni. Seriously, Jionni is the cutest thing ever, his family seems normal and amazing, Snooki is SO lucky to have found this diamond in the rough…and by rough I mean the Jersey Shore. Who knew they would end up pregnant, engaged…and meeting each other’s family for a normal dinner!

The gang head back to their crib, Jenni passes out from a food coma, Roger doesn’t get laid…and Snooki and Jionni end up cuddling! We went from watching a bunch of crazies down at the Shore, to literally watching a family sitcom. Merp! Loves it.

Couple Alert: Vinny G & Melanie Iglesias

If you aren’t Twitter creepin’ like some of us, you’ll be surprised to know that Vinny G from the Jersey Shore has a new gal pal. Unfortunately, for Jersey Shore romantic hopefuls, he didn’t find his new love down on the boardwalk.

Vinny appears to have found a romance with his Guy Code co-star Melanie Iglesias. Who is she? We don’t know either but they seem to make a cute couple! Vinny tweeted a few days ago…”You know you’re in love when you can’t fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”…she replied “Vinny Guadagnino stop subtweeting me!” Oh la la…

Snooki and Jwoww: A Pregnant B****

Snooki and Jwow have clearly ran out of fun things to do since Snooki knocked herself up and can no longer drink. Jwow and her pups head over to K9dergarten or whatever it’s called- basically her dogs need training because they’re s******** everywhere! Snooki decides to become a volunteer because she went to school to become a vet-tech…but evidentally did nothing with it.

She signs up to be a volunteer, which obviously has no requirements…and Snooki quickly learns Bella is not really the b**** she thought she was. Bella and Noelle are Jwoww’s dogs, you might remember them from the Jersey Shore when she had to bring them back to the house after her ex-boyfriend left them alone in their home. Snooki shows up for volunteer late, because she says it’s not a real job, and finds herself being attacked by a swarm of crazy dogs.It was actually an experience of a lifetime for Snooki who realized Bella was actually sticking up for her, and acting as her protector towards the other crazy pups. She appreciated the love Bella had for her and forgave her for all the times she was rude to her.(Yay!)

Unfortunately for Jenni, Snooki didn’t take lessons from Bella and was constantly being a b**** to Jenni, it’s like she uses every pregnancy excuse to have her way! As if Jenni wasn’t jealous enough, every time Snooki would complain she’d end up saying ‘You’ll know when you’re pregnant’. As if pregnancy was something Jenni was soon to encounter! Her and Roger were barely getting it in, and when I say barely I mean never. Poor Roger, his sleepovers always end up empty handed. Then Roger calls Jenni and freaks out on her that she’s a liar. Jenni admits she lies but they’re always small lies, which Roger shouldn’t be mad about. Anyways, they are so meant for each other Jenni just needs to grow up and realize Roger is amazing!

That’s all for this week. xo

The Real World: St Thomas!

Catching up on MTV’s The Real World:St Thomas has been quite entertaining! I never expected the roomies to be so funny and wild, I’ve never laughed so hard watching any Real World- and that’s mostly because of LaToya. Since the roommates are literally stuck on an island, rather than taking the boat to the mainland everyday, they find new and exciting things to do to keep themselves entertained. Fortunately, for MTV and Bunim-Murray this makes for great tv!

Laura is the most annoying roommate I think- ever. She’s like a little puppy dog following Trey around all day and night, she wants him so bad even though he’s made it clear he has a girl back home. Finally, Trey gives in and they hook up after 2 weeks of meeting each other.

Marie and Robb are definitely my favourite couple in the house, separately they are hilarious, Robb is a ginger which explains enough, and Marie is always up to something. Together, they make an amazing pair, especially when they are up to no good and in prank mode.

LaToya is just as funny as Marie, the way she talks and the things she says are just hilarious. Also, she seems really down to earth and very confident with who she is. She ain’t takin’ no s*** from anybody! Unlike Laura who just follows Trey around and finds her fun in flirting, Toya and Marie know how to make themselves laugh without the boys. But when Toya meets Lee’s son ‘Little Lee’ she is completely head over heels, and find every excuse to use that boat! It’s the funniest thing ever.

When Marie and Toya find a huge fish lying on the shore, Marie decides this is the ultimate prank, meanwhile Toya googles possible dead fish diseases before agreeing to help Marie with the prank. Marie on her own takes the fish and drops it in the boys’ shower. It doesn’t take long for Swift and Robb to realize something is stinkin’ up in their room! Swift sees the dead fish in the shower and immediately knows it’s one of the girls. Marie doesn’t admit to it and automatically blames it on Laura who loves animals and touches anything gross. Swift believes her and begins his plot against the girls. Unfortunately for him, Marie gets the fish and throws it back into the sea before the guys can use it. The funniest part, when Laura admits she had nothing to do with the prank, Marie blames it on Brandon saying he was so drunk he doesn’t even remember doing it. Brandon gets so excited that he would think of such an amazing prank and admits he blacked out the night before and doesn’t remember doing it-but that it’s something he would totally do!

Swift jumps into the water near the dock and accidentally steps on some sea urchins! When he gets out he can barely walk, he notices a bunch of little blank things in his foot. They head over to the doctor’s office, barely walking Swift finds out there’s no cure but that they’ll slowly fall out as he walks. Him and Toya fight over the stupidest thing.

On this week’s episode, the roommates find out what their new job will be. Working at Coral World is like a dream job, they’ll be working at an aquarium and Marie,Swift and Laura get to work with sea lions. While doing their swim test, Toya barely makes it to the finish line when she starts drowning and steps on a sea urchin!! She sees the same little black things under her foot, and Swift is having the best day of his life laughing at her. Her foot isn’t as bad as Swift’s but those sea urchins sure are an annoyance! Brandon can’t stop drinking, when he drinks he gets really emotional and weird, he starts hitting himself and breaking things around the house. Worst part, he doesn’t remember any of it the next morning.

In the end, Marie and Robb know how to cheer everyone up and possibly piss of Grandpa Trey. They smear peanut butter all over the counters and have fun drawing themselves in it, when Trey sees what they’ve done he just laughs it off. Seems like the roomies are having a great time on the island- and they’re turning out to be a good group of kids!

 

RHONJ: Beginning of the End

This season of The Real Housewives of New Jersey has been non stop drama drama drama, it seems the housewives can’t go 42 minutes without yelling or cussing at each other. Fortunately, for us, that makes great TV, and trust me I have no problem with it.

So I think I missed last week’s episode where Teresa and Jacqueline have an argument, I guess Jacqueline accuses Teresa of lying to her, and Teresa accuses Jacqueline of being a bad friend. Anyways, it all makes sense now because during last season’s reunion, Jacqueline refused to attend and said something had happened between her and Teresa while they were filming this season. So now we know what it is, but I have to admit I was expecting a little bit more drama from Jacqueline, instead she gets emotional and tries talking it out with Teresa! Like, really Jacqueline, you’re dealing with a crazy woman, there is no talking to her, just get over it and move on with your amazing family.

Melissa seems to get caught in the middle of everything because her husband Joe is Teresa’s brother, and now all of a sudden Teresa wants to mend the relationship with her brother through therapy. In this episode, she actually reaches out to cousin Kathy who she’s been hating on forever, and says they should reconcile. Kathy is all for it, she’d rather have her family than be fighting over nonsense, but nevertheless Kathy is skeptical about Teresa’s intentions, and the reason for her sudden ‘change of heart’.

Caroline is no longer friends with Teresa, after the tabloid magazines came out with Teresa’s cover article discussing her relationships with Caroline and the rest, it showed how far Teresa will go just to sell a good story. She claims the magazine just took what she said and ran with it, which I’m sure they did, but she must’ve said something along the lines that Caroline wasn’t a good friend, and that Melissa was jealous of her life. Anyways, Caroline has had enough, understandable because who could live with that woman anyways- oh right her loving husband Joe. He’s actually the funniest man ever, I don’t know if he intentionally wants to sound like an a** but when Teresa is pouring her heart out to him about the drama in her life, he gives his two cents and tells her to stop talking because he’s heard enough of her problems.

Joe Gorga holds another release party for wife Melissa’s song ‘On Display’, the evening looks like it’s a good time, Rosie’s completely hammered, Kathy and Rich show up hand in hand as always, and Jacqueline can’t keep her eyes off Teresa. The entire time Jacqueline is afraid to confront Teresa, in the end she does, and Teresa isn’t having any of it. She refuses to admit she’d done anything wrong and just blames Jacqueline for being a bad friend. Melissa shows up to save the day, but that goes sour when Teresa basically tells Jacqueline to f*** off, and that’s the end of that.

Fortunately for Jacqueline, it looked like she had a better time without Teresa anyways, taking a few shots at the bar with some random housewife.

Until next week, seems like things are getting even wilder!

RHONJ: Season 4

The new season of Real Housewives of New Jersey premiered a few weeks ago- and the DRAMA has already started! It’s only the first two episodes of what I hope to be a long season, and there’s literally drama everywhere. If you don’t remember, on the Season 3 Reunion- Jacqueline was missing, Caroline said she was so upset with Teresa she refused to be a part of the reunion. Somewhere between the Season 3 finale and the taping of the new season- something happened with everyone and Theresa that made everyone despise her.

Caroline could barely look at her, Melissa was just over the entire situation, and Kathy just continued disliking her like she always does. They didn’t really say what Teresa did, I guess it was something that she sad, or a few things that she said. We do know that in her cookbook she writes some nasty things about Caroline’s kids, and insults her brother and Melissa. She claims they were just jokes- and they were harmless but what’s the point of putting them into your cookbook? Obviously, she knows her book will sell more if she talks about the housewives- so she wrote those things to get attention…she just uses anyway to make money. Which I guess is understandable when your husband is a deadbeat dad and doesn’t have a job…and is possibly going to jail.

Anyways, the season starts out with a glimpse into the reunion and then it takes up back 4 months to the summer in New Jersey and everyone’s getting ready to go to the Jersey Shore. Apparently, the Shore isn’t just for drunken tanned meat heads…it’s also for families and their grandparents. Joe and Melissa have a cute place of their own down at the Shore but it isn’t quite ready because Joe was doing some construction…on their bedroom (Soundproofing?) not sure if he was joking…considering it’s Joe he was probably dead serious.

Kathy and Rich have the cutest place on earth, a small cottage that had to house literally everyone since Joe’s place wasn’t ready just yet. And finally, Joe and Teresa’s place that looked terrible- and it wasn’t even under construction. Joe brings this huge tarp thing, and when one of the girls goes to unwrap it there’s like 10 mice living inside of it and they’ve chewed their way through the tarp! It was disgusting- I was traumatized.

Jacqueline and Chris are still dealing with a troubled 20-yr old who doesn’t know where she’s going in life-so they decide to ship her off to Vegas to live with some relatives. Albie drives Ashley to the airport, when he’s on his way home she calls him to tell him she’s missed her flight and can’t leave until the next morning. Lost cause.

Melissa makes a song for Joe, and Teresa keeps doing her thang with the book tour to make some money for the kids and her husband.
