PREACH IT! 'Jersey Shore' cast member says something smart

September 14, 2010 |  4:09 pm


First Snooki abandons her pouf in favor of some almost-grown-up bangs. Then the Situation moves into an apartment complex that forbids noisy partying. Now we hear that other "Jersey Shore" cast members are speaking. In complete sentences. That actually make some sense.

The world has gone mad. Mad, we say!

Well, OK, maybe we shouldn’t be completely shocked. The person who is making sense is Vinny, the stealth guido who went to college, but no matter. This is still a major accomplishment and shall be feted as such by the Ministry of Gossip. The first round of Ron Ron Juice is on us.

What did Vinny Guadagnino have to say, exactly? Well, here you go, courtesy of Us Weekly, which cribbed the quote from "The Ellen DeGeneres Show."

"One time we were in a bar and a guy walked by and said, 'You are everything that's wrong with this country today.’ I was taken back by that. There's the economy, poverty, equal rights — and 'Jersey Shore' is the worst thing that's wrong?"

And get this: Vinny ain’t the only "Jersey Shore" cast member who thinks. ...

Snooki-bangs "I'll go to frickin' Barnes & Nobles, get a coffee and just sit down and read," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi tells Ellen DeGeneres.

"No one would ever think that. We have different sides to us and people don't see that."

No they do not.

What’s next: the abandonment of spray tans?
