Spencer Pratt may have a hot new single and a ridiculous house in Hollywood thanks to his success on The Hills, but the Jersey Shore cast is not impressed.

Asked about The Hills cast, Jersey's Ronnie Magro said of his fellow MTV reality stars: "I’m not crazy about them. We’re doing better than them right now."

"They’re really not that big of a deal," Ronnie adds, noting that the only thing the West Coasters can do better than the Shore guidos is "outspend" them.

The guidettes would welcome a throwdown as well.

"It would be awesome to do The Hills versus Jersey Shore, like Real World/Road Rules Challenge. We would torture them," Jenni "J-WOWW" Farley said.

"We’d ruin them,” she said. “I’d take on all six girls!"

Cast of Jersey Shore

The cast of Jersey Shore thinks it's already out of The Hills' league.

According to Mike Sorrentino, a.k.a. "The Situation," he and his fellow cast members already had a Hills run-in, and it was clear who was looking up at who.

“Somebody called our publicist in L.A. and said, 'The girls from The Hills want to sit next to you in a club,'" The Situation said. “As soon as we walked in, I saw some girl running at me. That happens a lot to us, so we didn’t know who."

"She almost tackled me. I went, ‘Oh, she’s kinda cute.’ Then I saw it was Kristin Cavallari. I like to think that I’ve always had it like this, but not to this extent!”

We can only hope for a crossover episode featuring Justin-Bobby and Kristin's fake relationship intertwined with ridiculous Jersey Shore quotes. Give it time.

Perhaps the biggest sign they’ve made it? Snooki and The Situation were parodied on Saturday Night Live. “I thought it was hilarious,” Snooki, a.k.a. Nicole Polizzi, said of Bobby Moynihan’s SNL Snooki parody of her. "He said what I would say."

Which MTV show's cast do you like better?

Jersey Shore is MTV's newest reality "hit."

But advertisers can't wait to hit the road.

After a flat-out ridiculous series premiere, Domino's Pizza pulled its ads from the show. American Family Insurance noticed its ads running and did the same.

The episode, which "outraged" at least one major Italian group, is going to be running only promos for other crappy MTV shows during breaks at this rate.

That said if you're an advertiser looking to sell hair gel, fist-pumping instructional DVDs, tramp stamps, spinning rims or gold chains, there are openings!

The cast of MTV's Jersey Shore. It's a lifestyle.

Meanwhile, according to new reports, the Jersey Shore Conventions and Tourism Board isn't smitten with the way their turf comes off on the program.

The tagline of "hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos" may play a role in that.

"We're flattered that MTV thinks we're an interesting enough destination to warrant an entire reality series," the tourism group said in a statement.

"But the national TV audience is hardly getting the full story." MTV is providing a one-dimensional, dramatized version of a very small group of visitors."

"We welcome visitors to come here, even during the holiday season, to enjoy a cultural diversity that in no way reflects what is seen on MTV."

We would really, really hope so.

"I'm the sweetest bitch you'll ever meet." - Sammi

"After I have sex with a guy, I will rip their heads off." - Jenni

"Guidos... when we stop, our chrome keeps spinnin'! I was born and raised a Guido. It's just a lifestyle. It's about bein' Italian. It's representin' family, friends, tanning, gel, everything. Dude I got a f**kin' tanning bed in my place, that's how serious I am about bein' a Guido and living up to that lifestyle. My tagline is 'I'm Your Girl's Favorite DJ.' I want the girls to c** in their pants when they hear my music." - Pauly D

It suddenly makes perfect sense why MTV renewed The Hills and The City despite sagging ratings and dwindling fan bases. The network's new shows are worse!

On this week's debut of Jersey Shore, which we've been waiting for since the Guido-hyping promo, eight roomies moved into a Seaside Heights, N.J., home.

The quotes above sum it up as well as we can in this space. Here's the full Jersey Shore premiere, which really has to be seen to be believed ...

If we were residents of New Jersey, we'd probably be incredibly offended ... unless we were the types who had tanning beds in our homes. Then we'd be all for it.

Falling ratings and lackluster recent seasons aside, MTV evidently felt the positives outweighed the negatives with The Hills and its NYC spinoff The City.

Both will return for new seasons next year!

The Hills, which just aired its fifth season finale Tuesday, was itself a spinoff of the popular Laguna Beach, and a must-see among the crucial 18-34 demo.

Ratings dive-bombed with the departure of Lauren Conrad and the introduction of less appealing characters and fairly vanilla stories this season, however.

The second half of Season Five began in September with just 2.1 million viewers, a sharp decline of around 50 percent from its previous season premieres.

Get ready for new seasons of Kristin, Whitney and cohorts!

Kristin Cavallari, Conrad's former rival on Laguna Beach, took Lauren's place as the series' main protagonist, earning some praise but also much criticism.

Meanwhile, The City, starring Hills alumna Whitney Port, also got the green light for a third season after its similarly mediocre episode a few nights ago.

In its first season, it focused on Whitney, both personally and professionally. This season it tried to be a "workplace drama." Reviews are still mixed.

Can The Hills recapture the drama-crazed, bitchy, guiltily addictive magic of seasons past? Can The City decide what it wants to be?

That remains to be seen, but they'll get a shot!

Truth is stranger than fiction, and some things you simply couldn't make up.

This was true in the case of Carrie Prejean on Larry King last night, an interview a hissy fit conjuring up memories of pre-school as it awkwardly played out.

It is also true of the trailer for MTV's new series Jersey Shore, which airs its first (and hopefully last) episode December 3 on that sad excuse for a network.

Remember when MTV's reason for being was to play and talk about music? At some point they decided this had run its course, and instead, they would focus on their "original" programming. The only problem? It's all unwatchable dreck.

Tuesday night during The City, the first promo for Jersey Shore aired, with an enticing hook: "MTV is taking you inside a shore house like you have never seen, full of the hottest, tannest, craziest Guidos!" Yes, they said guidos. Really:

If you want to watch a bunch of losers who "keep their hair high, their muscles juiced, and their fists pumping all summer long," this is the show for you!

And you need to see a psychiatrist ASAP.

When it comes to honoring true music talent ... watch something else. The MTV Video Music Awards do none of that. It's an arbitrary award show on a network called Music Television that no longer airs music videos.

But when it comes to celebrity fashion, gossip, rumors, random feuds, meltdowns and buzz-worthy events, the VMAs are in a league of their own.

Here are some of the highlights (and lowlights, thanks to that d!ck Kanye West) from the 2009 MTV VMAs, which aired Sunday, September 13 ...

  • After Taylor Swift took home the prized Moon Man for Best Female Video, Kanye West hjiacked her speech with a belligerent, absurd tirade.
  • Later, Kanye apologized for his outburst, using way too many exclamation points and saying he was just being "real." Yeah. A real a$$hole.
  • Fans and celebs alike decried Kanye's outburst, with the most scathing and hilarious reply coming from an unlikely source: Kelly Clarkson.
  • The much-anticipated Janet Jackson tribute to Michael featured her dancing along to the music and video of their classic duet, "Scream."
  • MTV also aired a preview of This Is It, the documentary footage showing MJ preparing for the tour that was to begin shortly after he died.
  • OMG: An extended New Moon trailer was unveiled.

Irate, drunk jackass Kanye West inexplicably cut off the adorable Taylor Swift and declared that Beyonce more deserving of a completely made-up award.

  • Alicia Keys and Jay-Z's performance was crashed by Lil Mama. Not Kanye style, she just danced along and hilariously posed with them at the end.
  • On a fashion note, Kristin Cavallari and Katy Perry wore, like, the same dress. Or at least dresses of the same color, length, and general appeal.
  • Pink and Shakira seriously wore the same dress though. Faux pas!
  • These girls Knowles fashion: Both Beyonce and Solange shined.
  • Who needs a dress? Whitney Port opted to wear sexy lingerie.
  • Naturally, and predictably, Lady Gaga was not to be outdone.

Not sure if this is true, MTV is pulling a fast one or somewhere in between, but The Hills star Audrina Patridge has reportedly pulled out of her presenting duties at this evening's MTV Video Music Awards in New York City.

The reason? She was to be presenting with Kristin Cavallari.

And she wasn't about to take part with her new fake rival.

"Audrina hates Kristin, and MTV sprung this on her at the last minute so she decided to cancel," a source dished to celeb gossip mag In Touch Weekly.

"She doesn't even want to be in the same room with Kristin."

  • 'Drina Pic
  • A K-Cavs Pic

The primary reason for the bad blood is drama - fake or real - caused by Kristin's reported dalliances with Audzo's dirtbag ex-boyfriend, Justin-Bobby.

According to reports, the stylist and hair and makeup team working with Audrina Patridge were even warned not to book a job with another Hills star.

Kristin is said to be "more than pleased" by Audrina's last-minute cancellation. Either there's a major cat fight brewing, or this is great scripted BS PR.

Says a friend of Cavallari's, who probably produces The Hills: "Kristin is happy. They never got along and Kristin is the star of The Hills, not Audrina."

Fightin' words! Whose side are you on?

September 13 marks the first full day of NFL action this season.

But while grown men around the country are getting ready for some football, teenage girls will be preparing themselves for some hot Robert Pattinson action!

MTV has announced that it will air a new set of clips for New Moon during that evening's Video Music Awards. This follows a new tradition for the network: at this summer's MTV Movie Awards, fans were treated to the first official trailer for the Twilight sequel.

If you somehow missed it, or just wanna relive the awesomeness, enjoy:

Moreover, we can confirm that Pattinson, Kristen Stewart and Taylor Lautner will be on hand to present the video at the event. Might there be another near-kiss between the former pair of co-stars?!?

The ceremony airs at 9 p.m. EST on MTV. We understand if you need to leave your computer for a few moments to go set a DVR recording.

But hurry back!

The Hills star Audrina Patridge agreed to go on the new season of Dancing With the Stars, according to reports, only to have MTV shoot down her dreams.

"They won't let Audrina do it," a source dished to E! Online.

Sherri Shepherd and Val Chmerkovskiy

"They told her it would be impossible because of scheduling."

However, The Hills doesn't usually shoot on Mondays and Tuesdays, the two days Audrina would be at DWTS for the performance and elimination shows.

"Audrina Patridge wants to do it. Everyone around her wants her to do it," the source said. "But MTV, for some reason, won't make it happen."

Dashed are Audrina Patridge's dreams of going Dancing with the Stars.

"Why wouldn't they want someone from The Hills on such a huge show? Dancing With the Stars would give MTV all this exposure, but they won't budge."

It would also let Audrina be herself instead of reading cue cards all the time and pretending to care about staged fights with Justin-Bobby. Bummer.

Audrina is currently developing her own reality show with Mark Burnett.

Other possible DWTS contenders in Season 9 are said to be Vera Wang, Dean McDermott, Lou Ferrigno and, per a report yesterday, La Toya Jackson.

Sounds like a crew that needs Audrina to spice things up. Weak.
