Jersey Shore Castmates Score Book Deal

JWOW.pngThere is no easy way to break this news. Jersey Shore castmates J-WOWW (pictured, via her Twitter page) and Ronnie have landed a book deal with St. Martin’s Press. They will publish a “Guido guide” entitled Never Fall In Love At the Jersey Shore.

The popular reality show debuted last year, exploring the lives of young New Jersey residents. MTV has already ordered a second season. In this celebrity-driven publishing world, perhaps reality television shows will soon replace creative writing MFA programs?

Entertainment Weekly had fun with the news: “[T]he two fair-weather Jerseyites to bring you all the best insight into GTL (Gym, Tanning, Laundry), MOITHT (Making Out In The Hot Tub) and GABTCAPSOOTB (Getting Arrested By The Cops After Punching Someone Out On The Boardwalk.) No doubt the advice will be as shallow as the Atlantic Ocean is deep, but perhaps they’ll be nice enough to include a free sample canister of Axe Body Spray.”
