This was inevitable: MTV has greenlit two “Jersey Shore” spin-offs: one starring DJ Pauly D, the other JWoww and Snooki. And somewhere, behind the velvet rope of a nightclub’s V.I.P. section, The Situation forlornly runs his fingers down his abs as he avoids eye contact with strangers.
Both of the series will air in 2012. Details:
— Untitled Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley Project: Always inseparable and ready to get the party started at the shore, viewers will get to see how they deal with life and love when the vacation is over in this 12-episode series. The locale may be different, but the friendship is sure to remain the same.
— Untitled Paul “DJ Pauly D” Delvecchio Project: Whether it’s Seaside Heights or Miami – no one has more swagger, one-liners or a more distinctive haircut that DJ Pauly D. Set to air for 12-episodes, this series follows Pauly D’s jet-setting and often hilarious life on the road as one of the country’s most in-demand DJs. [via THR]
Neither of these sound particularly sound like my cup of tea, but then, what reality show is? (besides “Stripper Knifefight House.”) The important thing about these shows is that we’ll never have to deal with Ronnie and Sammi shrieking at each other. Ugh, they’re the worst. A Ronnie/Sammi spin-off is what plays on the televisions in hell.
