Fight Night at San Gennaro: Sausage Fest Turns into Chair-Throwing Madness! (Video)

The Top Ten Lines from The NYT Profile of Snooki: A How-To Guide

Jersey Shore Responds to Village Voice Queer Issue Cover

Ha. The crafty characters I work alongside offered the world a fun moment when it was revealed yesterday that the men of Jersey Shore -- Vinny Gaudagnino, Ronnie Ortiz-Magro and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino -- didn't know they were posing for the cover of our annual Queer Issue (yet, somehow, still maintained the most fey poses this side of the Hudson).
