Those Jersey Shore kids are everywhere these days! After making an appearance Sunday at the MTV VMA’s, the cast of Jersey Shore sat down with Ellen Degeneres on her talk show to talk to her about their hit reality show! They told Ellen that they aren’t just the people that you see on TV and there’s more to them than just GTL – the phrase made famous by the show.
UsMagazine.com reports that Vinny Guadagnino, who could probably be labelled as the most subtle of the men in the house, told Ellen about a time he was approached in a bar;
“One time we were in a bar and a guy walked by and said, ‘You are everything that’s wrong with this country today,’ I was taken back by that. There’s the economy, poverty, equal rights — and Jersey Shore is the worst thing that’s wrong?”
And, while Vinny says,
“I think the Jersey Shore is awesome. Its fun, and it’s entertaining,”
his cast mate Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi wants everyone to know that there’s more to her than the over tanned, juicehead loving guidette that she appears to be on the show.
“I think no one knows how we really are. We have, like, different sides. Obviously you see us on the show we party, we do this, and we do that. But outside of the show, we’re very quiet.”
I have a hard time believing that Snooki is quiet! She goes on to tell Ellen that
“I’ll go to frickin’ Barnes & Nobles, get a coffee and just sit down and read, No one would ever think that. We have different sides to us and people don’t see that.”
I’m sure there’s more to the cast members than we see on TV, but the partying and the GTL is what makes the show such a success. I do love watching the show, but I have to admit I think I would be slightly mortified if they were my children! I don’t however think that they’re all that’s wrong with the country. Sure they’ve become very popular, but they do provide entertainment and I don’t think that they’re taking themselves too seriously.
What do you think? Do you think Jersey Shore is all that’s wrong with the country?
