Last night's South Park took on Jersey Shore and Real Housewives of New Jersey,
and held nothing back as they ridiculed (and at times straight up imitated, word for word) the ridiculous behavior of its reality stars.
During the episode, Kyle's mom Sheila explained that no matter how much you tell someone from New Jersey that you despise them, they'll always find a way to convince themselves you love them. (Well, either that or insult your "muff cabbage.") So: What did the stars of Jersey Shore
and Real Housewives of New Jersey
think of the animated mockery?
Check out their reactions below. Apparently Sheila was right, because it sounds like they loved every loud, obnoxious, ugly minute of it. Maybe it's "just a Jersey thing."
Despite being depicted as a demented furry monster
, sounds like Snooki loved the episode.Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino:
Got punched in the face by Randy Marsh and loved every minute of it.Vinny:
His life is complete. (Does that mean he's retiring from TV? ... Please?)
Meanwhile, DJ Pauly D
communicated their South Park
approval via photos. Pauly tweeted this shot of Jersey-fied Kyle
after a fan said they were "like twins," while Angelina Pivarnick, who fought several times with Snooki on Jersey Shore
this season, posted this shot of the Snooki creature
and wrote, "Haaaaa wat a jokee. Lil gremlin
Sounds like the Jersey
kids don't mind being called the scum of the earth if it means more exposure. (Wait ... I think we already knew that.) But what did those Real Housewives of New Jersey
Pretty much the same:Teresa Giudice:
Earlier today she claimed to have not watched the episode, but later told EW she was "honored to be mocked by them," especially in light of the other mockeries: "Poor Snooki though! I got off easy compared to her!"
How crazy is it that you shave your face? Is that what you mean by "how crazy," Caroline?
didn't sound exactly as thrilled as the rest in her response to EW
: "I was pleasantly surprised it wasn't just me being made fun of for a
change. You realize you're something else when you're
being made into a cartoon. It's pretty funny." Way to look on the sunny side! And yes, Danielle, you really are "something else."
The 'wives also used this unique opportunity to pitch ideas to other TV shows who might want to mock them. "I'm just waiting to be on SNL
, The Simpsons
, and Sesame Street
, and my life will be complete," Giudice told EW, while Staub said, "I think I might need to have something done on just me, on Saturday Night Live.
I could play me
and the rest of the characters could be played by the cast of SNL."
Embracing open disgust and mockery as a means of getting more exposure. Yep, it's a Jersey thing, alright!(Image courtesy of Comedy Central)
