I'm freaking out, man!
After struggling to launch a successful reality series for several years, on Thursday ABC Family announced that it has ordered Freak Out, a new hidden-camera prank show from SallyAnn Salsano (Jersey Shore), in the hopes that it will finally be the one that sticks.
Roger Mathews and Jenni "JWoww" Farley
Wedding bells are ringing for Snooki & JWOWW's Jenni "JWoww" Farley. The Jersey Shore alum announced her engagement last year, but fans will finally see how it all went down on Tuesday's episode (10/9c, MTV). Staying true to her wild ways, Farley had an engagement day that was anything but ordinary. Culminating in a surprise skydiving trip, the bride-to-be didn't know what to expect. "I was a nervous wreck," Farley says of fiancé Roger Mathews' unconventional proposal. "I land and I'm screaming."
It's a drizzly winter afternoon in Seaside Heights, and Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi — her newly slimmed-down body poured into a skintight dress that barely covers her backside — sits at the bar, legs crossed. Unlike the drunken, foulmouthed clown she seems to embody much of the time on the MTV reality hit Jersey Shore, Snooki is quiet, even demure, thanks in part to being under the weather. "I was burning up last night," she says. Her fever is accompanied by a sore throat and swollen glands. But, she says, "I know when to turn on the switch."
And turn it on she does, along with her seven other cast mates — Deena Cortese, "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino — scattered throughout the Beachcomber Bar and Grill in the town that launched them into pop-culture infamy. The gang, who wrapped...
They came, they smushed... but did they conquer? While Italy somehow survived its Jersey Shore invasion when the cast of MTV's reality smash relocated to Florence for Season 4, Snooki, The Situation et al. didn't have it so easy. Two months away from the comforts of their home-away-from-home in Seaside Heights left the guidos and guidettes in a serious state of GTL withdrawal. That's right: The eight stars — Deena Cortese, "DJ Pauly D" DelVecchio, Jenni "JWoww" Farley, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola, Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Magro, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino — found their signature gym-tanning-laundry ritual tough to pull off across the Atlantic.
TV Guide Network's new original reality series Nail Files isn't about just any Hollywood nail salon — it's about The Painted Nail, where celebrities flock and free booze flows.
On Tuesday's premiere (at 10/9c), owner Katie Cazorla learns of a last-minute opportunity to promote The Painted Nail at the Sundance Film Festival. Earlier this month, we dropped by the salon for a manicure and to learn about the salon's latest offering: exotic dancing. "We now have Burlesque Academy, where you can learn burlesque," Cazorla tells TVGuide.com. "It's cardio with a boa. It's more about being sexy, but it's an hour-and-a-half class and you get free champagne with it."
