'Jersey Shore's' Sammi totally hated by tweeting masses

Apparently "Jersey Shore" fans learned a lesson from Justin Bieber lovers (a.k.a. Selena Gomez haters) and have decided that Twitter is a perfectly appropriate venue in which to threaten someone's life. Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola -- whose performance (which included an altercation with new roomie Deena) on last night's premiere episode of the show's third season enraged everyone from @sirmitchell to @JavonneGotCURLS, kicking off a flurry of threats that put Sammi into the list of top trending terms on Twitter this morning. @youreaphony summed up the sentiments of the "Jersey Shore" watching nation with this tweet: .bbpBox23352447116247040 {background:url(http://a2.twimg.com/profile_background_images/187031508/user-bg-image.jpg) #131516;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px 12px 10px 12px;margin:0;min-height:48px;color:#000;font-size:18px !important;line-height:22px;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata{display:block;width:100%;clear:both;margin-top:8px;padding-top:12px;height:40px;border-top:1px solid #fff;border-top:1px solid #e6e6e6} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author{line-height:19px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author img{float:left;margin:0 7px 0 0px;width:38px;height:38px} p.bbpTweet a:hover{text-decoration:underline}p.bbpTweet span.timestamp{font-size:12px;display:block} Sammi and Ron you better not ruin this season with your dramaless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPadThea Kamillayoureaphony But most of the tweets echo the...

A reading from the book of Snooki

(Courtesy Gallery Books) I really tried to read Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's new book, "A Shore Thing." As an enthusiastic "Jersey Shore" fan, I eagerly downloaded Snook's first (ahem) fictional work when it was released earlier today. I wasn't able to get through chapter one. Yes, it's that bad. Somehow, watching a group of vapid 20-somethings get drunk, fight and hop into bed with each other indiscriminately makes for good TV. In book form, however, it reads like a D-list Harlequin romance left to molder in a dirty ashtray. To wit: "...casual sex with at least a couple of guys was also on her list of summer goals." So, rather than reviewing the entire book, I've selected a few choice passages from the first chapter and used my favorite Web animation tool to create this video (after the jump):...

In January, MTV hits the 'Jersey Shore' again

Some shows make us wait like a year between seasons ("Walking Dead," I'm looking at you), but luckily in the land of "reality," a dozen episodes can be produced in just a few weeks and ready for public consumption lickety-split. Such is the case with "Jersey Shore," MTV's new classic about a group of meatheads and hair-extension mannequins who curse, fight, drink, nap and do lots of laundry. Season 2's sweaty finale aired in late October, but already Snooki and the gang are slated to return to cable on Jan. 6 (which totally messes up my "Quit killing brain cells with 'Jersey Shore' " New Year's resolution). Watch the newly released promo below to get a peek at a drunk (imagine that) Snooki, chick-on-chick fistfights and the newest cast member, Deena Nicole Cortese (who looks like she's going to take on Snooki in the leopard-print mini-dress department): Related: Celebritology Giftology...

Celebritology Giftology Day 5: Give the gift of 'Jersey Shore'

The Situation: working it for the holidays. (The Situation's Facebook page) Here's the fifth installment in our 12 Days of Celebritology Giftology series, a dozen posts designed to help you cross the celebrity- and pop-culture-obsessed pals off your holiday gift-giving lists. Think of these posts as our gift to you. We're just that generous. Today's mission: Find a gift for fans of MTV's cultural juggernaut, "Jersey Shore." People like me who might not be so disappointed to find a Snooki Wig under the Christmas tree. Luckily for all of us wanna-bes, the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" have been particularly adept at self-marketing since their show took off as one of 2010's biggest hits. For the uninitiated, it's about a bunch of fake-baked club rats who drink, smoosh and fight. Compelling, right? The picks, after the jump......
