Persian And Asian Versions Of “The Jersey Shore” In Planning Stages

Jersey Shore Cast

This is just insane now. Article courtesy of All Headline News:

Hollywood, CA, United States (AHN) – First the country’s top guidos and guidettes made their way on to the Jersey Shore and hate list of every Italian-American society in the country, then their were rumors of a Russian version hitting Brooklyn’s Brighton Beach and now it looks like the Persian and Asian communities are wanting a little slice of the hit MTV show’s success too. Numerous outlets are reporting that there are currently open casting calls for Persian-Americans and Asian-Americans that are willing to bare all and then a little some for two new reality shows.

According to Perez Hilton, the Persian version’s casting call reads: “Los Angeles [-based] proud Persian-Americans who rule the Hollywood nightlife and own Beverly Hills. It’s time to show the world that being Persian-American is a celebration of the American dream.”

It continues: “If your life is ‘all about Gucci- Gabbana, Cavalli and Cristal’ or if buying anything ‘from BMWs and Bugatis, to Mercedes and Movado-money is no object,’ then should apply.”

Meanwhile, the Asian-American casting call is “looking for interesting, attractive, colorful Asian-American to cast in a reality show similar to ‘Jersey Shore,’ ‘Real World.’ ‘The Hills,’ etc.”

The ad also indicated that casting isn’t limited strictly to Asian-Americans either, while it also did not say which production company had posted the notice.

With all these different reality shows being pitched, viewers might need to install translation apps on to their smart phones to keep up with the international lingo and phrases by these fame-hungry casts. We can only imagine how many versions of “The Situation” or a Snooki, audiences will be able to handle.

How many, indeed?! I think that flooding the market with these shows will make them old QUICK. Some aspects of the Jersey Shore were annoying already, and that’s with people already “knowing” about the “Italian” culture. Russians? Asians? Persians? Eh.

In case you didn’t know, J-WOW (Welsh? Irish?), Snooki (Chilean), Ronnie (half Spanish) aren’t even Italian, and none of them are from New Jersey or Staten Island.


Jersey Shore heads to South Beach in Miami for Season 2!

Cast of MTV's Jersey Shore

From the Miami Herald:

From what we hear inside City Hall, Jersey Shore in Miami Beach is a done deal. Despite protests from some locals, South Beach rolled out the Ed Hardy carpet and Jersey Shore jumped on it like, well, a reality star in an awards show gifting suite.

MTV is said to start prepping for the show here in two weeks, to be followed by the arrival of the cast. Though we’re not 100 percent sure on where the merry gang of guidos will be residing, depending on who you ask, it’s either too close or not close enough.

You can practically hear the fists pumping — some, up in the air in a joyful display of delight, and others into various walls around the city.

Get ready, Miami. And don’t say you weren’t warned.

Good luck to all self-respecting Floridians! Something to consider: Why is a show filmed in Miami called Jersey Shore?

Some of the Jersey Shore geniuses on Jay Leno last night

A few of the people from the new MTV show that everyone loves or vehemently hates, Jersey Shore, were on Jay Leno’s show last night. Pauly D, Snooki, and Mike “The Situation” made an appearance on a fake game show called Battle of the Celebrity All-Stars.

Now, from the Jersey Shore show, you don’t get the idea that between the three of them you have a single functioning brain (or moral compass), but from watching last night, I sincerely hope there was a wholeeeeee lot of acting going on. First, bask in the glory that is the three of them:

The degree to which the lack of intelligence was displayed last night was hilarious, if not tragic. I’m pretty sure it was fake, because if not, well, oy.

You can find a few clips from last night here.

Please watch it. It’s great stuff.
