'Jersey Shore' cast samples the Hollywood lifestyle -- via Golden Globes swag suites

Jersey shore cast

As if their beach-dwelling lives of spray tans, bedazzled jeans and Jell-O shots wasn't sweet enough -- the cast of MTV's "Jersey Shore" got the suite treatment this weekend.

In celebration of the Golden Globe Awards, the eight "guidos" and "guidettes" made the rounds and scored swag in large part for being Grade A fist-pumpers.

At "The Hospitality Suite," hosted at jeweler Pascal Mouawad's home in the West Hollywood hills, the cast got gems from Mouwad's collection, Nu Pop watches, coif tips from celeb hair guru Chris McMillan's colorist, Erick Orellana,  magnums of Ciroc vodka and ab-tastic fitness products from G2.

"I love L.A., I'd move here in a second," Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi said while scoring Wet Cement Love T-shirts and grooming products from Valerie Beverly Hills.

In all their Ed Hardy-esque glory, pictured above, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino, DJ Pauly D (Paul DelVecchio), Vinny Guadagnino, Ronnie Magro, Snooki, Sammi "Sweetheart" Giancola and Jenni "J-WoWW" Farley looked happy as clams. 

The gang later hit the PopChips lounge, where the musclebound men must've been thrilled to receive free supplies of protein drink Muscle Milk. That star perk probably inspired more tears than any golden statue could.

New Year's Eve party report: Jersey Shore hits NYC; Fergie and Josh Duhamel kiss in Las Vegas [Updated]

Jersey Shore While we at The Ministry hope you were drenched in confetti and kissing a loved one when the clock struck midnight on New Year's Eve, we've got the scoop on where the stars toasted 2010.

Although we told you Thursday that the likes of Lady Gaga and Nicole Richie would be hosting their own bashes across the country, a few surprises popped up in between the hyped happenings -- like the spontaneous showing of MTV's "Jersey Shore" cast at New York's Tenjune nightclub.

Snooki and her lovable gang sipped from a magnum of champagne alongside club owners Eugene Remm and Mark Birnbaum, as rapper Ron Browz performed his track "Pop Champagne." 

In Las Vegas, Fergie and Josh Duhamel made a united front, hitting the club LAX with her band the Black Eyed Peas. After the countdown, the two shared a passionate kiss

PREACH IT! In defense of Ron Ron Juice and poundin' it out

Jerseygang Just what is the problem with “Jersey Shore”? Actually, scratch that. I know why critics hate “Jersey Shore.” They won’t stop flapping their old-school erudite jaws about it.

"The first thing we do, let's kill all the 'guidos' -- not the people, of course; I'm talking about the awful anti-Italian stereotype peddled on 'Jersey Shore,'" an academic named Rosario Iaconis suggested in a recent opinion screed.

(Academic humor! It's high-larious! Not the people -- get it? Get it? Oh, God, my sides are gonna hurt so bad tomorrow. Hold on while I reapply my mascara. Oh, Lordy, that was a good one.)

The main point of all the scholarly huffing: That the word “guido” is a debasing slur that shouldn’t be tolerated, and everybody should just stop watching right now. And oh, the hair gel and the fake tans and the plastic nails and the acid-wash jeans and the -- the debasement of it all!

It's true. The word has been used as a horrible slur, for a very long time. But what academic sanctimony squad hasn’t seemed to remember is that outside entities aren’t the ones doing the labeling and the hair gelling, nor are they the ones proudly preparing the Ron Ron Juice and seeking every possible opportunity to “pound it out.”

PREACH IT! Pass the peppehs, we're going down the shore (the 'Jersey Shore,' that is)

Shore You are not prepared for "Jersey Shore."

I don’t mean the location itself, though in recent days I’ve learned that one cannot venture into said coastal lands without a modicum of hair gel, one feverishly torn pair of acid-washed jeans and at least one pair of panties silk-screened to read, “I Love the Situation.”

No, I speak of the reality show, which rightfully has at least half the planet mesmerized.

The cast: eight self-described "guidos" and "guidettes" -- and proud of it -- whose mamas cut their steak dinners for them and whose hair is an epic undertaking of streak jobs, tubs of styling gel and the occasional -- if I indeed follow correctly -- unfortunate pouf.

The names: Snooki, the Situation, Vinny, DJ Pauly D, Ronnie, Angelina, Sammi and J-WOWW. Their sole purpose in converging upon the New Jersey town of Seaside Heights, resplendent with its boardwalks and pony-legged ladies in artfully sliced tank tops, is to "pound out it" (their words, not mine) with a suitable young Italian American of the opposite genduh.

No "The Hills"-style fake career girls here, or producer-staged “goals.” Again, sole purpose: Drink. Get laid. Check hair. Repeat. In simplicity, utter genius.
