“Jersey Shore” breakout stars Jenni “JWOWW” Farley and Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi launch their spin-off show — the intuitively-titled “Snooki and JWOWW” — on Thursday (June 21) on MTV. But fans looking for a true peek into the lives of the now minted reality stars may want to stick with following the girls on Twitter.
“We want to stay true to us,” says JWOWW when Zap2it asks if the show will include the business of their celebrity. “Having fans and having a brand is a bonus. But we’re not stars who based a show on our fame. We put our show together with 8 people based at the shore and we want to stay relatable.”
So, instead of getting a peek behind the curtains of their fame machines (both have launched branded products and books), viewers will get a peek into another somewhat contrived circumstance: Snooks and JWOWW living together in a Jersey City apartment and getting real-ish.
In reality, lives with boyfriend Roger and Snooki, who still lives with her parents in Marlboro, N.Y., is busy prepping for the birth of her first child with long-suffering boyfriend Jionni. Still, they admit that they took it pretty easy during the taping of their spin-off.
“It’s a different dynamic,” says Farley. “We’re maturing, we’re getting older. I’m sure there’s millions of fans out there that are pregnant or getting pregnant. So it’s relatable.”
“Snooki and JWOWW” premieres at 10 p.m. ET on Thursday (June 21) on MTV.
