It's Pauly D's world. The rest of us just live here.
Jersey Shore is back this week, and Pauly spoke with THG and our TV counterpart, TV Fanatic, this week about some of the drama in Seaside Heights.
He also mused about fame and discussed with us some of the finer things in life - hair products, tanning beds and DJing, natch. Here's our interview:
It's good to be Pauly D.
You seem like the most genuine, friendly person in the Shore house. Is that just your nature, or is everyone else that much more crazy?
That’s exactly how I am. I went on the show just being myself, and how I am back home. The funny thing about that is all of my friends back home love watching me on television because everything I do with the cast is everything I do back home.
The things that I say, the things that I do, it’s just like watching me hang out with them, only I’m hanging out with the Jersey Shore people.
You're famous for Jersey Shore, but you're actually from Rhode Island. Can any New England beaches match the craziness of Jersey?
Yeah, we’ve got some beaches on Rhode Island that are just as crazy as Jersey. We have the Newport Atlantic Beach Club (ABC), which reminds me of the Jersey Shore, it’s just like it. There’s clubs out there, and we have a little bit of a boardwalk.
It reminds me of Jersey. That’s how I compare it to Rhode Island. People go crazy at the beach and the clubs and just want to have a good time just like the shore.
