EXCLUSIVE: MTV To Angelina - No More Interviews!

She may have only appeared on three episodes of the MTV hit show, “Jersey Shore”, but it seems the network is protecting Angelina Pivarnick as if she is one of the station’s biggest assets. Pivarnick, like her former housemates, is currently making the rounds on the nightclub circuit, hosting parties for thousands of dollars.

“The Ralphie Radio Show” requested to speak with Angelina before her appearance Friday night at the Scranton Hardware Bar in downtown Scranton, PA. The agency booking Angelina denied the request, citing an MTV mandate that she is not allowed to do any type of interviews while on the road.

If anything, it is a keen marketing decision on MTV’s part. By Angelina not speaking with media, it only fuels the rumors and speculation as to whether she will return for season two of the show. Although, by going as far as to specifically state she cannot do media, you would think she’s returning, right?

EXCLUSIVE: Snooki Snags $5K For About 15 Minutes

The self-proclaimed “Princess of Poughkeepsie” extended her reign upstate over the weekend. Nicole Polizzi, better known as “Snooki” from MTV’s “Jersey Shore”, snagged just under $10,000 for two club appearances on Thursday and Friday in Western New York.

According to three different sources, speaking to “The Ralphie Radio Show” on the condition of anonymity, Snooki appeared early Friday morning at Whiskey River, a night club in Niagara Falls, NY. Patrons were charged up to $25 at the door for admission. The reality show star didn’t arrive until approximately 1:30 a.m., only showing face to the crowd for around 15 minutes. The appearance made her $5,000 richer.

Bars close in Niagara Falls at 2 a.m. on Thursday. Earlier in the evening, Snooki made a guest appearance at a teen night in nearby Rochester. The promoter, who was in charge of making sure Polizzi made the hour and a half commute, blamed the tardiness on inclimate weather.

The following night, Snooki hosted a party at Pure Nightclub, located in downtown Buffalo. Polizzi danced with friends and hosted a “best abs” contest. Although her appearance lasted about two hours, Snooki stayed at the nightclub until 4 a.m., which is last call in Buffalo, dancing and drinking with friends in a V.I.P. area.

Snooki flew cross country later that morning, arriving in Los Angeles to co-host MTV’s red carpet coverage of The Grammy's on Sunday.
