That is so stupid.  Here is y thought.  Technically they were only there for a month.  Why not start filming immediately following the start of summer and film a week or two ahead of schedule like all the other reality shows.  Doesn't that make more sense?

It's strange seeing the terms "reality shows" and "make more sense" in the same post. I thought they'd be mutually exclusive.

Child please. Can't say that I agree. A few guidos maybe. Mainly a bunch of cha-cha muscle heads and ganXta wannabes. The local yellow press (AKA The New Times) recently reported on how South Beach queens --we don't use SoBe here :)-- have been [supposedly] fleeing to Ft. Lauderdale/Wilton Manors due to the changes in demographics and an increase in hate crimes.

As much as I love me some Ronnie and Snooki I am not too fond of bringing more rubbish down here.   

On a separate note my sis tells me that The Situation is planning to release a fragrance? Says she heard it on the local radio.

Well if it smells like hot guido crotch mixed with good italian cologne, it's a winner.

You're in denial. :)

Most of the time when I was going to Miami annually from the early-90s until around 2003 it was for Winter Music Conference, and at least for that event there was a massive influx of guidos after 2000.  Actually come to think of it I went to a wedding at the Eden Roc in 1998 and my plane was full of them, but it was Memorial Day weekend too.

The first time I went to South Beach in 1990 (you were probably still on the swing set) it was either elderly Jews or fashion models there.  That was about it.

I think they should go to Rimini on the Adriatic in Italy. It's kind of the "Jersey Shore" of Italy. Gorgeous and tacky all together.
Then as a side story they can have these "Italian" Americans confront real Italian culture and Italian young people like -- or unlike -- themselves.

Maybe they could get Martin Scorsese to direct a guest episode. Or Sophia Coppola.  Then the whole thing could be double shot - for Jersey Shore MTV, and for some fashion magazine.  Bruce Weber photos.

Well that's what I would do if I were MTV program director.  Then if you did one or two really amazing episodes, it would add an edgey documentary note to the brew, and maybe head toward the Emmy and some way out of the tele-reality hole we are in. 

The Situation has some cocky charm - think a "punched in the face" Marky Mark.  

I hope they have good agents and don't end up all screwed up like Jon Gosselin.

Update on the Situation's new fragrance... it is called "Sitch." According to EW it smells like gym, tanning, laundry, and desperation.

Well sorta but Rimini isn't Capri or Sardinia, isn't very chic for Italians, so its not Beverly Hills, its gorgeous and party party like Ibiza.

If we want to go the Beverly Hills route we can send them to Martha's Vineyard but there's not much to amuse them there, or Saint Tropez.  Or as proposed, the Hamptons. I think them in the Hamptons would be dreadful.  Hamptoms people are not generous.

Cannes is pretty flashy and there is plenty of trouble to get into in bigger beach cities. I think they would all be fun together at the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monte Carlo. That's the perfect mix of high and low.  These Jersey Girls are quite NASCAR but they are guido so they appreciate Italian brands. I'd like to see them get VIP access for some things and get snubbed by the hip hop yacht crowd. The boys would feel emasculated by all the rich testosterone on display.  They could get dissed by the hip hop crowd for being low rent celebrities.  The billionaires (arabs, euros) all look down on the hip hop and hollywood "yachts" because they are too small or rented, and the black stars aren't billionaires!  

Eternal pecking order.

I always found the Hamptons crowd very generous, even to the point of having a vintage Rolls Royce convertible at my disposal one weekend.  But they would definitely shun the Jersey Shore crowd.  I can't recall ever seeing any guidos out there at all, and I used to go out to East Hampton several times a year for about a decade.  Always good times, and the wealthy queens I knew would never let me spend a cent.

Is this an MTV reality TV program?   Duh... 

Is The Real World [sic] still on the air?  Yesterday while registering people and dogs at the Krewe of Barkus  parade I heard several references from the stage about MTV & The Real World but luckily my booth was well concealed so I never saw any of the dweebs. 

In the Anals of TV history MTV will be recognized as the originator of "reality TV (unless you count "Queen for a Day" in the 60s...)"  and duly vilified for crimes against humanity.
