'Jersey Shore's' Sammi totally hated by tweeting masses

Apparently "Jersey Shore" fans learned a lesson from Justin Bieber lovers (a.k.a. Selena Gomez haters) and have decided that Twitter is a perfectly appropriate venue in which to threaten someone's life. Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola -- whose performance (which included an altercation with new roomie Deena) on last night's premiere episode of the show's third season enraged everyone from @sirmitchell to @JavonneGotCURLS, kicking off a flurry of threats that put Sammi into the list of top trending terms on Twitter this morning. @youreaphony summed up the sentiments of the "Jersey Shore" watching nation with this tweet: .bbpBox23352447116247040 {background:url(http://a2.twimg.com/profile_background_images/187031508/user-bg-image.jpg) #131516;padding:20px;} p.bbpTweet{background:#fff;padding:10px 12px 10px 12px;margin:0;min-height:48px;color:#000;font-size:18px !important;line-height:22px;-moz-border-radius:5px;-webkit-border-radius:5px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata{display:block;width:100%;clear:both;margin-top:8px;padding-top:12px;height:40px;border-top:1px solid #fff;border-top:1px solid #e6e6e6} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author{line-height:19px} p.bbpTweet span.metadata span.author img{float:left;margin:0 7px 0 0px;width:38px;height:38px} p.bbpTweet a:hover{text-decoration:underline}p.bbpTweet span.timestamp{font-size:12px;display:block} Sammi and Ron you better not ruin this season with your dramaless than a minute ago via Twitter for iPadThea Kamillayoureaphony But most of the tweets echo the...

"Jersey Shore" is back tonight; we step up with a handy drinking game

'Jersey Shore's' season 3 cast. That's the new chick, Deena, on the far right in leopard. (MTV) What could possibly be more entertaining than watching The Situation, Snooki, JWoww, Sammi Sweetheart, Ronnie, DJ Pauly D, Vinny, Grumpy, Sleepy, Dopey, Doc and some new chick make their return to the "Jersey Shore" on MTV tonight? Turning the season premiere into a drinking game, that's what. The rules are so simple, even someone who self-identifies as a "gorilla juicehead" should be able to follow along, though it may be helpful to consult our "Jersey Shore" glossary first:...

A reading from the book of Snooki

(Courtesy Gallery Books) I really tried to read Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi's new book, "A Shore Thing." As an enthusiastic "Jersey Shore" fan, I eagerly downloaded Snook's first (ahem) fictional work when it was released earlier today. I wasn't able to get through chapter one. Yes, it's that bad. Somehow, watching a group of vapid 20-somethings get drunk, fight and hop into bed with each other indiscriminately makes for good TV. In book form, however, it reads like a D-list Harlequin romance left to molder in a dirty ashtray. To wit: "...casual sex with at least a couple of guys was also on her list of summer goals." So, rather than reviewing the entire book, I've selected a few choice passages from the first chapter and used my favorite Web animation tool to create this video (after the jump):...

In January, MTV hits the 'Jersey Shore' again

Some shows make us wait like a year between seasons ("Walking Dead," I'm looking at you), but luckily in the land of "reality," a dozen episodes can be produced in just a few weeks and ready for public consumption lickety-split. Such is the case with "Jersey Shore," MTV's new classic about a group of meatheads and hair-extension mannequins who curse, fight, drink, nap and do lots of laundry. Season 2's sweaty finale aired in late October, but already Snooki and the gang are slated to return to cable on Jan. 6 (which totally messes up my "Quit killing brain cells with 'Jersey Shore' " New Year's resolution). Watch the newly released promo below to get a peek at a drunk (imagine that) Snooki, chick-on-chick fistfights and the newest cast member, Deena Nicole Cortese (who looks like she's going to take on Snooki in the leopard-print mini-dress department): Related: Celebritology Giftology...

Kim Kardashian is TV's top-earning reality star

(AP) There is money to be made if you are possessed of a.) a fading celebrity, b.) little talent but much ego, c.) a big butt and/or well-placed implants, d.) multiple children and a bad attitude, e.) a substance abuse problem or f.) all of the above. Which is why hopefuls from David Hasselhoff ("The Hasselhoffs") to self-absorbed club kids ("The Hills," "Jersey Shore") are busy jumping on the reality TV money train. And, according to a new report from the Daily Beast, Kim Kardashian is the top-earning reality TV star on 2010 with $6 million in earnings. That includes her pay for E!'s coma-inducing "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," but the famous-for-being-famous Kardashian also rakes in big bucks thanks to endorsement deals, party-hosting gigs, sponsored tweets and her own klothing clothing line. Who else made the list? 2. Lauren Conrad, $5 million ("The Hills") 3. Bethenny Frankel, $4...
