It's T-Shirt Time

Ciao Lovelies,

Seeing as how it's all of the news, I'm sure most of you are informed that the Jersey Shore cast is filming their fourth season here in Florence. I'll admit that I have mixed views of the show as they do portray young Americans and Italian-Americans in a pretty negative light yet I can't deny how entertaining they are to watch, almost like a train wreck where you just can't look away. So when I got news that they were moving in on my final day in Florence, I sacrificed an hour in the middle of the day to watch them move in. And after our last nice dinner out, with the 6 new best friends that I made, we caught the cast walking around the city and followed them around.

I'm at the far right, in the middle of speaking.

I'm to the right of "The Situation's" head, with my friend Kate

I'll admit that I felt ashamed that I was caught up in the hysteria but it's a strange force that pulls you in. These people contribute nothing to society except entertainment and it's not even the quality entertainment that actors and singers provide you. Yet, because these people are on T.V. people, myself included, get wrapped in the thrill of being near someone "(in)famous" and will see what they're up to.

So what are your thoughts: Was it ridiculous that I spent several precious hours following the cast around with my group of friends? Can you understand the hysteria not only on reality T.V. stars but celebrities in general? What do you think about the Jersey Shore? Honesty is always appreciated :)
Eternally yours,

I think it's a sad world when people like the Jersey Shore cast get paid waaaaaay too much to act like pure imbeciles, but I TOTALLY would've done the same thing you did!
I mean, that is just too cool ;)

Stephanie~Thanks for your kind words on my blog. I too love how much you get to know a person just from their blogs!
I would LOVE for you to guest blog. I'm fairly new to the whole thing, but I think it'd just be easiest if you copy and paste your original post and email it to me at absblog123@gmail.com. I'll post it while I'm at camp. If there is a better way to do it, let me know. Just email me if you have any questions ;)

Haha so you literally just followed them everywhere they went? Was it planned or were they like "People give us some space!"?

That's cool you're in these pictures :)

Hated the show the first season and refused to watch. Then I gave in during the Miami season. It's bad reality TV so it's entertaining (to me).

I actually dressed up as Snooki for Halloween hehe!

Haha! I see you, I see you! I love that you followed them around - they're "celebrities" in their own right now, so I imagine that they don't mind being followed around. :P

I'm going to be honest and say that I never watch the show and I simply don't want to ever. I think it's embarassing that reality shows like this even exist! So if I see them in real life, I wouldn't care at all. I'm a big fan of certain celebrities but I just like to admire them from afar, that's about it. I don't really care about their life. Glad you have fun walking around with them though! Looks pretty exciting! xoxoxoo

They are my guilty pleasure so I'm kind of getting a kick out of this!

Have a lovely week dear!
