Emmys host Jane Lynch certainly didn't rein herself in Sunday, taking shots early and often. Amusingly, the Jersey Shore cast played along in a pre-recorded spoof.
Introduced as a CNN report by Anderson Cooper, in what he called "a sobering look at the future of television," Lynch appeared as a woman named Donatella Alberghetti Mangiana D'Borgia (who could almost pass for Teresa Giudice).
Who knew Donatella, a TV producer from the Garden State, single-handedly deserves credit (or blame) for all the Jersey-themed programming nowadays ...
Donatella's signature greatest accomplishment, no doubt, is transforming "eight at-risk youths" and turning them into an MTV phenomenon.
The Situation scared to death? Pauly D talking about DJing at NPR? Snooki billed "just a Harvard undergrad" before Donatella made her the "chosen one"?
Pretty hilarious stuff.
