Oh, no--Tan Mom and Snooki are feuding!

Quote:
After Snooki called Patricia Krentcil “crazy,” the New Jersey mom fired back by referring to the pregnant meatball as “Snoopy” and saying, “She’s the biggest a**hole in the world. She’s fake, she’s fat, her t*ts are fake, she’s disgusting.”
I love it--it is a perfect storm of pop-culture early-summer idiocy! Somewhere Anna Nicole Smith is smiling. In a week of Chinese dissidents, early election woes, Occupy protests and the usual Middle East crisis, I need my Tan Mom/Snoopy feuds.

Indeed, can you remember any stupider stories? Surely there is a Tan Mom/Snooki/Snoopy moment once a year or so, like an evanescent bubble of TMZ-fueled moronity.

Two people who are so "famous" that nobody knows them by their Christian names. At least people know Snooki's nickname!

I hope Hilary Clinton is being called back from China to mediate between Tan Mom and Snooki, and that the Obama and Romney camps are both going to weigh in with their opinions.

Also, France is electing a new President, and London a new mayor: doubtless the Tan Mom/Snooki hostilities will have international repercussions.

Wow. I'd love to see the footage of that exchange. It really doesn't get much more trash-tastic than that.

I can't wait for Tan Mom to peel off her leathery skin to reveal that she's really someone like Jane Wyman or Donna Reed. A nice, normal mother with appropriately-pigmented skin and hair who isn't a skank.

And Snooki is actually Peter Dinklage, in his most amazing role yet!

I would like to use this thread as an opportunity to confess: I just finished watching the first three seasons of Jersey Shore. What in the world is the deal with Sammi and Ronnie?

Actually, I'm a broom.

You will enjoy The Jersey Shore as read by the cast of The Importance of Being Earnest, then (there are five parts, all hilarious): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mhk5Rjz7xk0

Snooki tweeted a picture without makeup a little while ago. It made it to a lot of the usual websites. She was actually pretty cute.

Hate to admit it, I'm with Snooki on this one. She is playing a role on tv and getting paid well for it. Tan Mom is just a freak.

I just GISed pictures of Tan Mom. Had no idea what she looked like.

Snooki is a freaking goddess in comparison!

Love the Wilde version of The Shore! I like movie version on youtube too, starring Mila Kunis as Snooki. "The only thing they love more than ham is the duck phone!"

I've never seen The Jersey Shore, but I've heard enough about it to get a kick out of this interpretation - cracked me up!

Missed the edit window--the link for "Jersey Shore: The Movie" may be NSFW for some.

Yes. Her next booking is at Miss Millie's Academy of Beauty on Wednesday.

You mean the Jersey shore is real? I thought it was a fictious show the real comedians Beavis and Butthead made up

It's "real" in that it's a "reality show," which seems to mean "we cast fame whores and didn't pay script writers."

I haven't watched more than clips here and there, but Snooki gained some admiration from me a while back when she compared her shape and stature to that of a Ewok. And yes, her no-makeup shot showed quite a lovely young woman under all that, but that's not what audiences tune in for.

About 50 points higher than the audience.

I've made it a point to never watch Jersey Shore, the Kardashians, or any of the other similar unreality shows. I've managed to almost miss several seasons of Survivor, Dancing with the Stars, American Idle, and America's Got Talent, too. My wife and son like these, so sometimes I HAVE to see something when I walk through the living room. Oh, and I did make it through about 15 minutes of the Ozzie Osborn show once, mostly because I was listening to Ozzie some back when bats were still on his training table menu.

I've come to the opinion now that someone could make a hefty fortune by developing an add-on app for Firefox, IE, smart phones, etc that will filter articles that contain certain key words or phrases, such as "Jersey Shore", "Kardashian", "Lohan", "Paris Hilton", etc. Heck, with a few moments of thought, we could probably come up with 10-20 names or phrases that could come pre-loaded in the app.
