It's been referred to as the southern Jersey Shore, but there's officially nothing funny any longer about Buckwild.

Not after 21-year old star Shain Gandee was found dead in a truck today, his corpse discovered along with two others in a vehicle that was buried up to its windows in mud.

Buckwild's Salwa Amin has been arrested a second time in connection with the West Virginia drug raid last month that turned up oxycodone pills and heroin.

Amin was hauled in Wednesday on a bench warrant, which was issued after the moron allegedly blew off a court date stemming from the first arrest.

As a result ... dueling mugshots!

Salwa Amin was arrested the first time for drug possession following the February raid, in which she and a friend were both busted for intent to distribute.

They are accused of transporting oxycodone and heroin to sell it. Serious. Now that she's been arrested again, Amin remains in custody without bail.

So worth it.

The cast of MTV's Buckwild has been ... well, goin' buckwild lately.

This time it's Michael Burford, a.k.a. "Bluefoot," getting arrested.

The reality star got popped Friday morning in Charleston, W.V.

Police say Burford was pulled over for speeding and appeared to be drinking. He failed a field sobriety test and had a blood alcohol level greater than .15.

That makes it aggravated DUI case under West Virginia law ... a.k.a. worse than regular DUI. He was TRASHED in other words, if that reading was correct.

Co-star Salwa Amin was also arrested this week, for drug possession with intent to deliver ... quality role models MTV picked out with this bunch, no doubt.

Many West Virginia residents are not fans of Buckwild, MTV's new reality show - and replacement for the retiring Jersey Shore - which premiered last night.

Set in Sissonville, W.V., the network's latest "authentic comedic series" follows the antics of nine twenty-something cast members who are ... a little bit country.

Punches are thrown and words are exchanged. Turmoil brews among the roommates.

MTV teases that the show follows "an outrageous group of childhood friends from the rural foothills of West Virginia who love to dodge grown-up responsibilities."

Sound familiar? Only in the backwoods and not the Garden State coastline?

Jersey Shore, meet Buckwild, your replacement on MTV.

The reality show about nine young adult friends in West Virginia doesn't premiere until January 3, but it has already received harsh criticism from public officials.

U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin, a Democrat, wants the network to cancel the forthcoming program, calling its portrayal of young people in his home state "just wrong." He wrote MTV:

"This show plays to ugly, inaccurate stereotypes about the people of West Virginia."
