I am not sure if it is something I would watch on a regular basis but for the curiosity factor as well as the "I have watched all my regular shows already" factor of a Sunday afternoon it was entertaining.
    I don't watch Jersey shore, but I have seen clips of snooki getting very drunk, thats all I have seen her do btw. I caught Shas yesterday, and they are very very wealthy. I don't think I could watch them every week. I just thought the character MJ looked like another snooki.

    She really needs a good hairbrush. I do have to hand it to them for going with whatever outfit they feel like wearing without concern for whether it is appropriate for their body type.
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    Sadly, I don't think hearing the proper pronunciation will change anything soon. People still pronounce Iraq "eye-rack," and it's not like Americans are unfamiliar with the country. I grew up in near a town that was at least 30 percent Italian, yet back then people still said "eye-talian." That took a good 20 years to get that one right.

    Hah. My mom has been married to my Italian father for 40 years and she still says "eye-talian". He gave up a long time ago.

    I grew up with many Persians and am very familiar with their culture. It's unfortunate but they are so into materialistic things and trying to out do each other. They have to have the biggest house, the newest and most expensive luxury cars and the rivalry between brother and sister in laws is unbelievable! Everything is about what looks good from the outside. If any of you have seen the movie "The House of Sand and Fog", it is a perfect example of the culture. It's not like they don't work for what they have but to be so consumed about your outward appearances to your family (especially in-laws) can't be too healthy!!!

    I am not sure its wise to paint a whole culture of people as greedy because of a few idiots on a reality tv show

    Aside from being unattractive he has some sort of personality problem...criticizing women to draw people away from his deficits. Men who have it going on almost embarrass themselves trying to impress women.
    You can do it!
