This satirical, fictional story is part of the April 1, 2011, edition of reality blurred. Happy April Fool’s Day.
When the Jersey Shore cast heads to Italy for their third season in a few weeks, they’ll be joined by the cast of Teen Mom, including their babies.
MTV said in a press release that “combining the casts of MTV’s most-popular series will give viewers even more of the drunken fights and drama they crave in their authentic entertainment.” The group will live together in a former convent that has been renovated to include baby changing tables attached to stripper poles.
Executives are reportedly excited about the potential for unlimited amounts of consequence-free drama in Italy, where they hope that having the cast drunkenly scream, “I’m a fucking American reality TV star, asshole,” at police and other authority figures will ensure they are immune to arrest or prosecution, especially if they point out that Italy will benefit from increased tourism by drunken American Jersey Shore wannabes after episodes start airing.
Because of the difficulty of getting work permits, JWoww, The Situation, Snooki, Pauly D, Ronnie and the others will work as babysitters for the teenage mothers, while they go out and party and hit people. That is considerably more care than some of the kids usually receive, both from their mothers and the network. As a bonus, time spent with that group will give the babies training in how to behave appropriately to secure fame and careers in reality television.
During their time in Italy, some of the Jersey Shore men will also be tasked with creating more cast members for 16 and Pregnant, thus keeping the two franchises going in perpetuity.
