30 Days of Tv Meme - Day 05  

Jersey Shore

I am not sure if I need to explain the why here but I will. I was born in Philadelphia, PA. My grandparents lived in Harvey Cedars, Long Beach Island, NJ. So yes, they lived on the Jersey Shore. I'm also Italian (my father was born in Italy). Starting to make sense here? I LOATHE the stereotype that all NJ Italians are over tanned muscly guidos just biding our time until we can get into The Mafia. We work in waste management, thank you very much. (That was totally a joke). But this one and the other Jersey reality shows give not only Jersey but Italians a bad name. It's bad enough that I got made fun of for my east coast accent when my parents settled in AZ but I also got asked like DAILY if my dad was connected. These kind of shows, don't help. Not to mention the fact, those idiots are from STATEN ISLAND!

Jersey Shore... while I must admit I laugh at the stupidity of the people on the show, I do think it is totally unfair. It promotes so many stereotypes about Italians, as do most movies. I actually wrote a paper about Italian stereotypes in the media for my English class this year. It's so true that almost every movie/tv show promotes that all Italians are somehow connected to the Mafia.

There are so many guidos on Staten Island, it's not even funny. o_o

And LOL I love SNL. XD

If you still have that paper, I would love to read it if you want to email it to me at jjsoapchat @ yahoo . com. I'm always interested in that sort of thing.

I hate to say it but yeah. It's like everyone shipped their guidos to Staten Island. It's nuts.

I LOVE me some Weekend Update, that is for sure. Cracks me up.

I don't have the paper anymore :/ I have a bad habit of deleting my schoolwork from the computer. It's weird lol.
Kellyxlivvielockex on June 13th, 2010 11:13 pm (UTC)
I am totally the opposite. I save every paper I ever wrote cause I re-use them for classes. LOL I have one paper that I've used for four different classes in college. Just by tweaking it.

I don't judge anyone for watching it. I watch some pretty bad tv myself. It is just one of those things that just pisses me off to no end.

Oh, come on! You didn't like the fist pump??


LMAO I can't believe I actually watched this show. Every time I did my jaw dropped and I kept asking myself why am I watching? I must admit, it always made me laugh at the sheer stupid of the cast. It was too ridic.

NOOOOOOOOO at Real Housewives!!! I love the NYC one. Mostly for Bethanny Frankel. But, yeah, I've seen them all. I can't help it. I'm a Bravo whore :\

PHILLY PHILLY!! Yeah, you think they'd know they were giving Italians a bad name. It's almost as if they are playing a role. I did hear Vinny, the one in the gif, doesn't act like that IRL and that he was just acting this way. Still, MTV needs to dump shit like this and maybe play videos, again?

Wait...what...MTV used to play videos? (totally kidding there LOL)

I know you love your trashy reality shows. I think you would have unfriended me if I was like I hate "I Love New York". That would have gone too far. (kidding again!)

And you got me hooked on I Love Money and I think VH1 is dumping it!

I also got asked like DAILY if my dad was connected.

As a fellow NJ Italian, I find the best way to handle that is to say yes with the implication, "And I could have you killed with a single phone call." :)

LMAO That is SO funny you say that because when I got to HS, that is -exactly- what I used to say.

Yeee, I'm glad I never watched this show. Or Real Housewives or Dr. Phil, whom I cannot stand!
Kelly: C/A Animated lovexlivvielockex on June 8th, 2010 05:15 am (UTC)
If you get me started on Dr. Phil, I will be here all night. I cannot stand that man.

Someone who doesn't even have a real degree, who used to pick juries for high powered law firms, has NO business giving people advice.

Just call me Dr. Kelly cause I have better credentials than him!
yazizzle33: Cordy/Angel - Billyyazizzle33 on June 8th, 2010 08:09 am (UTC)
I couldn't agree more! It reminds me of that Frasier episode where I think it was Kim Coles guest starred and she called herself a doctor. LOL I didn't think that'd happen in RL but I guess I was wrong.

I watched five minutes of this show and then had to go bleach my brain to purge the stupid from it. I cannot believe that people watch this crap.

*Ditto to the Real Housewives*
Kellyxlivvielockex on June 8th, 2010 05:16 am (UTC)
I assume it's aimed at teenagers who have nothing better to do and just want to point and laugh at stupid stuff. I think. I have no idea what they were thinking.
