It’s been three years since Snooki and her famous poof arrived at the Jersey Shore, and our world was forever altered. The reality star has had lot to celebrate this year: a new baby, a fiancé, tons of endorsement deals and now her 25th birthday. Who would have ever thought the tan Poughkeepsie native would hold such a permanent place in the hearts of Jersey Shore fans?
Now she’s all grown up and moving on to bigger and better things, but we hope she doesn’t chill out too much. We have a funny feeling we won’t have to worry about that, though. In honor of her quarter century making this planet a little more orange, we would like to look back at some of her most insane moments! And while we hope there are more to come we are definitely going to enjoy watching this somewhat toned-down guidette take over the world!
Does anyone else find it hilarious that PETA picked Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino for a campaign that promotes spaying and neutering animals? It’s to increase awareness and to prevent animal over-population and homelessness, but basically, in our heads, it’s The Sitch and neutering in one sentence which cracks us up hard. But, we’re not trying to be mean — you laughed too, okay — because he’s done a really good thing here. And hey, you have to give props to the campaign for being catchy! It’s not half as racy as some of the PETA campaigns like the “I’d rather go naked than wear fur” advertisements, also because we’re kind of used to him being shirtless, but this one’s “Too much p—y can be a bad thing” is definitely one of the smarter slogans PETA has used! Mike gave the world a heads up about the campaign being out on his Twitter account, saying, “Here it is! It was a pleasure working with peta on this campaign. A great cause with an important message!” There’s even a PSA video to go with the campaign shot which you can see below. Color us impressed, Sitch!
We here at VH1 Celebrity pride ourselves on the fact that we are equal opportunity oglers. Of course, the paparazzi aren’t as egalitarian, so when we went about putting together today’s Bikini Awards contest, the Mankinis (sorry, but we promise no Speedos), we had a much more limited selection. Photographers were on hand to capture the likes of Joe Manganiello, Channing Tatum, Justin Bieber, Harry Styles and Shemar Moore, but they really didn’t present the sheer quantity of angles and attention to detail as they did for, say, Adriana Lima. But through our hard work and perseverance, we made sure to bring you the best of the man flesh on display, including three meaty servings from the Jersey Shore, the always shapely form of Mark Wahlberg, the unwaxed masterpiece that is Hugh Jackman, One Direction’s delicious Liam and Louis, and the deceptively sweet-faced James Marsden and Patrick Schwarzenegger. Ogle away, and then vote for your favorite. Polls close July 15 at 11 p.m. ET!
Having to pay a fine for “failing to use to the sidewalk” has to be the most embarrassing thing Deena Cortese has had to deal with since joining Jersey Shore (Just kidding! Here are photos of her bathing suit falling down). We’re glad Deena won’t face criminal charges after being hauled in for disorderly conduct last month, but there is something deeply funny about having to pay the government money in order to make up for your drunken street dancing. Of course, Deena isn’t the only Jersey devil who’s had a hilariously random interaction with the legal system. Here are our favorite Jersey Shore legal matters that had Snooki & Co. checking out the inside of a courtroom, not to mention breaking a penal code or two…
Forgive us for wanting to indulge you a bit. Okay, we’re also indulging ourselves, but we swear that your benefit was first and foremost in our minds when we wrote this. These three celebrities have really nothing in common apart from being super rich and famous. Oh — they also share they fact that they have the most incredibly ripped bodies. We thought we’d get you a little montage of their shirtless, weekend action to prove our point. Not that it needs proving — we just wanted shirtless, hot men to start the weekend with, okay? How is that a crime. On the left we have dreamboat and new father, Chris Hemsworth, chilling by his hotel pool over the weekend in Sydney. His co-stars, Charlize Theron and Kristen Stewart have just flown in as well, as they’re all in Australia for the premiere of Snow White And The Huntsman. Until then, we’d like Chris to laze around shirtless as much as his heart desires.
In the middle, we have the equally dreamy David Beckham, who took his tattooed torso out for a spin after his soccer team, L.A. Galaxy beat the Portland Timbers in California. May he always win his matches and celebrate just like this, over and over again. Finally, on the right we have The Situation who was doing what he usually does — being shirtless. On his roof, this time around. Whatever you have to say about him, you have to admit he has a totally sick body. We’re rather happy by this weekends catch, even though we may say so ourselves. And not to play favorites or anything, but we’ve got two more photographs of shirtless Chris, right after the jump. Enjoy! Read more…
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is out of rehab already! As you know, there was some major “is he, or-is he not” back and forth about his rehab status, as his rep initially wasn’t confirming the story. It didn’t matter because Sorrentino himself announced he was in rehab soon after, making the confession on his blog. He admitted he had “voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion. I have spent the past several weeks getting treatment for this problem and recuperating from my work and appearance schedule. I appreciate my fans support and love you guys.”
He checked in to the Cirque Lodge for his pill problem, and we were really hoping he was going to stay in there for a while to get it out of his system. But it seems that The Situation is out of rehab already. The guy’s been in there barely two weeks! TMZ spotted the Jersey Shore star at an airport near the Cirque Lodge, and he even snapped a photograph with a fan who was boarding the same flight. Is it because of his filming commitments? That has to be the reason, right? We really hope the time he spent in there was enough for him to get the help he needed and that he’ll be able to withstand all the partying pressure while on the show. Good luck, Mike!
You guys, quickly! Angelina Pivarnick here and she has some important information regarding The Situation’s prescription pill problem! Somehow she has this information despite the fact she was his costar for a sum total of about 45 minutes! The important part is, everyone is paying attention to Angelina! “When he was on the show, he got in trouble for having prescription pills. We were filming in a club in Miami ,” Angelina told Page Six. “One of the producers said, ‘Hey what was that?’ He had to give them up.” Hearing one of the Sitch’s ex-cast mates discuss the particulars of his alleged substance abuse makes us raise our Ron-Ron juice to all of the Jersey Shore housemates who aren’t blabbing about the issue. Unless of course TMZ is right in it’s allegations that the Sitch is also receiving treatment for an alcohol problem, in which case we’ll pour this right back into the blender where it came from.
While the Situation admitted yesterday on his blog that “I have voluntarily taken steps to get control of a prescription medication problem I had due to exhaustion,” Angelina instead describes him as being like “Popeye on Crack” during their brief time together. Girl, come on! Popeye? Sure! But let’s leave the crack out of this. “Angelina is up to her dirty little hamster ways again,” the Situation tweeted this afternoon. Hey! Angelina gets attention, and we get to picture her gnawing on a toilet paper roll to make a nest! Looks like this story turned out to be a win-win after all.
Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino is in rehab, as we type, as far as TMZ is concerned, for substance abuse. One of the Sitch’s reps spoke to the website refusing to confirm the story. What they did say is that he “has spent the past several weeks at an undisclosed location for much needed rest and recuperation after his extensive production and appearance schedule.”
Sorrentino tweeted a semi-denial just a couple of hours ago, writing, “Don’t believe everything you read or hear.”
Wherever he is right now, we’re glad that he’s getting some sort of rest. Every single time this particular writer’s watched an episode of Jersey Shore, it’s been in awe of the amount of booze consumed on a daily basis. And we don’t mean awe in a good way. It’s like they’re all ticking time bombs, and when those blow up, it’s never pretty. Snooki is pregnant so has to have her act in order. And she’s going to be on Season six. We think The Situation should clean up, zen down and come back with a clean slate as well. We all wish him well.

Update: Sources are now telling TMZ that Mike was “getting worse” as the season went on, and that they believed he was was showing the tells of substance abuse before that. Apparently, the sources say that had started “acting paranoid” on the set and that everyone is happy he’s getting help from his supposed trip to rehab. We’re waiting for more updates.
These two facts might just be completely unrelated. But the timing does make us think twice. Y’all know that Abercrombie issued a statement directed towards The Situationwhich asked him to stop wearing their clothes because they felt that it would be detrimental to their image. They even said they’d throw in some cash if he agreed. Their release said,Ã‚Â ”We believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans.”
In a case of super timing, Abercrombie’s sales fell sharply a day after they made their statement. A whole 9% we might add. Was this a case of the Sitch’s loyal followers balking at their diss? Or just a coincidence? It’s a little ironic that their stock dip happened right after they made the statement. Score one: Jersey Shore!
Wow. No wonder everyone booed The Situation at last night’s Roast Of Donald Trump. We almost started booing the computer while we were writing this. In addition to the Sitch making a vicious slavery joke about Snoop Dogg (“You know you have so much in common with Donald Trump? Trump’s ancestors were into real estate , and your ancestors were considered property.”), The Situation’s unaired Trump Roast jokes are even more offensive then the ones that we actually saw. TMZ reports that some of the jaw-droppingly offensive insults, aimed in large part at deaf Academy-Award winner Marlee Matlin, include:
“I’m not from New Jersey. I was born in Staten Island which is a New York borough, not to be confused with the burro Marlee Matlin b—s onstage in Tijuana.”
And as if The Children Of A Lesser God star hadn’t suffered enough teasing: “Relax, she didn’t even hear it. I mean hey, at least her mouth is good for something right? Hey, that was definitely some great work, Marlee. Have you ever done anything else actually?”
“Larry King is rockin’ the Armani diaper, Seth MacFarlane is sporting Victoria’s Secret panties. And Snoop is wearing a Louis Vuitton condom. Nah, I’m just kidding, he don’t wear condoms, you know that!”
“I like Larry King; he’s a playa. He actually wrote a book named “Mr. King Is Having a Heart Attack.” He got that title from a hooker he was f—ing.”
“Trump is a good looking dude … if your eyes are like Marlee Matlin‘s ears.”
