On Tuesday we got better acquainted with Mike The Situation Sorrentino, one of the new stars of MTV‘s reality TV show Jersey Shore, and today we are getting to know fellow castmate Paul Pauly D Delvecchio a little bit better as well. Pauly D, who famously showed off his penis piercing to female castmate Jenni Jwoww Farley on the first night Jersey Shore aired on MTV last week, spoke with E! News‘s Marc Malkin about his new-found fame … and his willingness to show off his penis piercing to the whole world in Playgirl:
Yo, Pauly D is ready to strip down! Don’t know who Paul “Pauly D” Delvecchio is? Well, you should. The 27-year-old Rhode Island DJ is one of the stars of Jersey Shore, MTV’s new reality series about a group of self-described “guidos” and “guidettes” sharing a summer house together in Seaside Heights, N.J. It was within just the first two episodes that one of Pauly D’s biggest secrets was revealed when he and fellow housemate Jenni “Jwoww” Farley were caught on film getting very cozy after a night of partying. Looking down his pants, Jwoww discovers Pauly D’s manhood is pierced. “I wasn’t expecting that it was being filmed,” Pauly D told me earlier today. “But I don’t mind. I mean, it’s whatever.” (For the record, he says his mom has seen the episode, but has yet to comment on it). In fact, he wouldn’t mind showing everyone what he’s got by posing in Playgirl. But unlike Levi Johnston, Pauly D says he’d go full frontal. “I didn’t tell anyone about my piercing,” he said, “but I’m not shy.”
LMAOOO!! MTV really outdid themselves by casting this bunch of self-proclaimed guidos and guidettes. I’ve only been exposed to one night of their shenanigans and I’m already in love with all of them. I have no doubt that Pauly D will drop trou should Playgirl come callin’. Considering how disappointing Playgirl‘s collaboration with Levi Johnston turned out to be, they’d be wise to sign up this new upstart who is very willing to show the whole enchilada … er, or should I say the whole cannoli. After the jump, read more of Malkin‘s interview with Pauly D and find out what he has to say about the controversy surrounding Jersey Shore and the claims that the show misrepresents Italian-Americans …
“I don’t ever remember guido being a bad thing,” Pauly D said. “I’m proud to be a guido. I’m proud to be Italian. I love it.” Domino’s Pizza and American Family Insurance have pulled their ads from the show. “Everyone is gonna watch the show to see what all the buzz is about,” Pauly D said when asked about the criticism. “If I were an advertiser, I’d want to advertise during the show. It’s almost like advertising on the Super Bowl…I think they’re stupid for pulling out.” So how far did things get with Jwoww, who still has the same boyfriend she had when Jersey Shore was shot? Pauly D is mum on any bada-bing details, but says, “Jwoww’s real cool. We still talk, but we’re definitely not dating.”
Yeah, I don’t care how many advertisers like Domino’s Pizza pull out of spending money on this show, someone else will step in and take their place. There is far too much buzz about this show for it not to appeal to other advertisers. MTV deffo has a hit on its hands … and we have a new batch of reality TV stars to have entertain us. God bless New Joisey!!
