|Sammi, the Jersey Shore roommate whom everyone|
loves to hate--excepting of course, Ronnie, her man.
Back to the Shore. "The Jersey Shore is a term used to refer to both the Atlantic coast of New Jersey and the adjacent resort and residential communities," according to Wikipedia.org. According to MTV, it is something else. I add this for those of you who have never watched the show -- and who haven't clicked the link in the first line.
(Bret Easton Ellis has an essay in the January Playboy, as noted here, which I plan to write about; his review is more about The Hills than the Jersey Shore; I think he snorted too many chemicals and forgot what he was writing about. I do love some of his novels, and I thought the film of The Informers wasn't half bad, though the baby producers cut from the film some graphic stuff that was in the book.)
Anyway, rather than write one gigantic post encompassing everything I think about this show, I will focus on one character each week; this week, it is Sammi, who seems to be turning into Angelina in that everyone else in the house seems to hate her. (Snooki was my first choice for the start off, but seeing that she gets arrested for public drunkenness in the next episode, I am going to wait a week for her.)
For those who don't watch the show, or have missed Season Three, here is a quick rundown of the first two episodes which have so far aired:
Episode one: Leftover tension from Miami spills over to Seaside when unresolved issues among the girls explode on the first night. And new roommate Deena gets off to an interesting start when she "accidentally" gets naked in front of The Situation.
Episode two (the one we are up to): The fight between Sammi and JWOWW causes tension in the house. Ronnie and Sammi continue to isolate themselves, missing the first family dinner. And when Ronnie decides to hang out and have fun with the rest of the house, Sammi feels all alone.
Here's the cast (and MTV hasn't updated the site for season three of one of its hottest shows -- can you believe it -- to include the new roommate, the one replacing Angelina, who was way to cool for school and walked away from her 15 minutes -- and potentially millions of dollars in endorsement deals, club appearances and such; some cast members are swimming in it now, especially Mike "The Situation."):
