Snooki has her book deal, The Situation had Dancing With The Stars, but Pauly D has beaten them both to the spin-off punch. It’s been confirmed that Pauly (real last name DelVecchio) is the first Jersey Shore cast member to nab his own spin-off series.
MTV has announced that a pilot for Pauly’s show has already been shot in Rhode Island, where he’s originally from, and that the show will focus on his DJing career. (Did you know he was actually nominated for America’s Best DJ this year alongside Moby, Jazzy Jeff and ?uestlove? Neither did we!) MTV exec Chris Linn explained that Pauly was chosen because “At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast, and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities. We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore, and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that.” But will there be cabs to the bar and drunken fights? Because that’s what we want to explore.
