Equal time for Alyssa Milano: A very tan argument against 'Jersey Shore'
Alyssa Milano does not love the show "Jersey Shore." Annd as you might have noticed, the Ministry's Leslie Gornstein has sort of swayed in favor of the show "Jersey Shore." But the Brooklyn-born, Staten Island-raised actress is not alone in wishing the show were off the air.
Well, this is a little uncomfortable. What to do?
How about equal time?
Yes! (Leslie is off for a few days, shh, so don't tell her, OK?) The Ministry of Gossip is proud to present Alyssa's heavy-on-the-tan-and-tease-and-tatas visual argument against the MTV series! (A video that is getting tons of Internet love, incidentally.)
About her decision to do a parody, Milano told Yahoo News: "We wanted to make something funny and smart, but also, a video that didn't take itself too seriously. I'm a big fan of the Dove: Evolution campaign. ... But who am I kidding? I jump at any opportunity for the world to see me with frizzy hair and without makeup. Happy Holidays, Internet!"
Full disclosure ...
The Ministry (a Slovak, a couple of Jews and a half-Irish half-WASP -- sorry, no Italians) is oddly skewed toward natives of Philly, North Jersey and Brooklyn (aka north North Jersey). Go figure. Does that make us biased, or experts?
Thank goodness we don't take ourselves too seriously.
And don't self-tan.
I'm the half-Slovak from New Jersey, incidentally, with a bunch of half-Italian cousins -- and I think Leslie and Alyssa both make good points.
And both of them make me laugh.

P.S. My "Jersey Shore" nickname is "Tan-tric." Leslie's is "L-Scream." What's yours?
