Pauly D of Jersey Shore Gets MTV Spinoff Reality Show

Ready for more “T-shirt time?” Jersey Shore’s DJ Pauly D, also known as Pauly Delvecchio, will have his own spinoff reality-TV show in 2011, MTV has announced. The pilot episode has already been filmed, but the series does not yet have a name. Delvecchio’s show will look at the life of the Providence, Rhode Island, native—who says he was “born and raised a Guido”—off the Shore, something MTV execs said fans have “always been curious about.” Delvecchio has quite the full schedule: Aside from his work on the DJ circuit, he’ll also be ringing in the new year at MTV’s bash, and the third season of Jersey Shore kicks off January 6. While he’s the first of the housemates to get his own show, it’s hardly a surprise considering Jersey Shore is MTV’s highest-rated show of all time.
