3 reality shows 'Jersey Shore' producer SallyAnn Salsano wishes she'd created

Salsano Sure, SallyAnn Salsano is the creator-producer of MTV’s hit show “Jersey Shore,” which returns to MTV for a new season August 4th, but she can’t help but be a little envious that she didn’t dream up other shows.

Here are three she wishes she had created:

“Sister Wives” (TLC)

“I love it more than anything. I just want to get in there and interview those [women] and see what’s going on in their heads. Cause, for me, I’m like, ‘Seriously, how is this OK?’ I’ve never missed an episode. I’m insane about it.”

“Vanished With Beth Holloway” (Lifetime)

   “It’s the one with Natalee Holloway’s mother. I always grew up watching all the [‘America’s Most Wanted’ host] John Walsh stuff. I was so into it. And it was interesting because, yes, he was the host of the show, but also he was the whole reason behind it. I love to see [Beth Holloway] out there literally going through it and helping others in her situation.... I’m nerdy like that.”

Bad girls “Bad Girls Club” (Oxygen)

“I love me some ‘Bad Girls Club.’ Those girls have bad behavior and they don’t apologize for it. When doing a reality show, you’re always trying to find people with no rap sheet and no problem background and people who won’t cause problems — but that show is like the calling card for crazies.”

Viacom likes the Situation with "Jersey Shore"

"Glee"'s Lea Michele, Chris Colfer and Cory Monteith won't be back?
