Can you get virtual carpal tunnel syndrome by over-exposure to the cast of Jersey Shore? If so, everyone might want to buy stock in ace bandages because MTV is pulling no punches–but showing plenty of them–as they present an all-day marathon Thursday, January 6, leading up to the 10pm/9c season premiere of Jersey Shore.
I would give you a play-by-play of the action covered during Thursday’s marathon, but come on, it’s Jersey Shore for crying out loud. Suffice it to say, there’s drinking, partying, hooking-up, fighting, fist-pumping, court appearances and friendship, as only the kids from Jersey Shore can live it.
In the past few day’s, some of the Jersey Shore castmates have shown up on everything from Good Morning America, Live! with Regis and Kelly and Ellen to Jay Leno and Jimmy Fallon. While their chatfest visits are usually humorous, whether intentional or not, thus far, the best appearance came courtesy of orange-tinted, pint-size future rehab resident Nicole Snooki Polizzi when she stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live during Wednesday night’s show. There to promote not only the premiere of Jersey Shore Season 3, Polizzi‘s also pushing her just published bio, A Shore Thing. During Kimmel‘s monologue, he intro’d a trailer for the new season of Jersey Shore, which introduced a new cast member,. It wasn’t the real trailer which introduces Deena Nicole Cortese, the actual new cast member. Instead Kimmel‘s parody clip introduced Snooki‘s fictitious sister, Frankie 4-Eyes. If you’re like me and have always suspected the cast of Jersey Shore weren’t really as guido as they portray themselves,Polizzi‘s hilarious turn as Frankie in the Kimmel spoof proves one thing, she’s actually got potential as a comedic actress. In case you missed it, check it out via the video post to the left of this article.
As for the new season of Jersey Shore, filming began on July 25, 2010 and wrapped on September 4 of last year. As revealed in last season’s finale, Angelina Jolie Pivarnick is outta here. Angelina‘s former frequent girl-fight partner Jenny JWoww Farley‘s recent break up with her boyfriend Tom Lippolis, creates new relationship opportunities for the implant-sportin’ drama queen. Look for Snookie and Vinny Guadagnino to once again hook up. According to reports, as the season progresses, Vinny‘s role on the show will noticeably diminish. Instead, Polizzi begins to spend lots more time with Ryder. Ronnie and Sammi are still at odds. Paul Pauly D DelVecchio pursues a career as a DJ. As for Mike The Situation Sorrentino, he’s still obsessed with his daily routine of gym, tanning, laundry, or GTL if you speak guido.
Don’t think for a minute Jersey Shore sightings will be limited to MTV once the series kicks off. Among their upcoming scheduled drop-ins, look forPolizzi to stop by David Letterman‘s The Late Show on Monday, January 10 as she helps the night’s Top Ten List.
