The Daily Shuffle: Snooki and Jenni Talk About Their New Show

jenni and snookiSnooki and Jenni told MTV News what viewers can expect to see on their Jersey Shore spin-off: “It’s pretty much just the concept of me and Jenni being on our own without the roommates,” said Snooki. Jenni added, “We legitimately just wanted to buy a house together. She wanted to get out of her dad’s, and I wanted to move out of the home that everyone could see on TV, so they were like, ‘let’s shoot it!'” But who’s going to use Lean Cuisine and Juicebox to get back at the girls by feeding them nutter butter so they come home to poopies everywhere? – MTV

Karina Smirnoff of Dancing with the Stars will appear in the May issue of Playboy. Hugh Hefner says we’ll be able to see her “on the cover and nude inside.” A DWTS staffer told Rob Shuter of PopEater, “If Karina posed naked, she can kiss her dancing days goodbye. I hope for Karina’s sake that this isn’t true.” ABC’s position on the matter is also one of distaste — they believe Karina’s appearance in the magazine would “soil” the “wholesome” show’s image. An ABC source said, “ABC publicity department controls the image of this show with an iron fist. It’s a cash cow and they are not going to allow its reputation to be soiled by a dancer who wants to do Playboy.” – PopEater

Matt Lauer is not, apparently leaving the Today show because he’s hoping that all this turmoil results in a raise for him. He currently makes $17 million and would like to be making $25 million. – TMZ
