Advice For ‘South Park’ On Its Plans To Fend Off New Jersey Invasion: Fuggedaboutit

October 7, 2010

It looks like the snide, potty-mouthed denizens of “South Park” are going to take on The Situation and Snooki. Good luck with that, you Colorado pantywaists.

Matt Stone and Trey Parker — the sicko (and now very rich) creators of the animated Comedy Central hit — are taking a stand against New Jersey, according to a press release Thursday from the cable network. The showdown is Oct. 13.

“New Jersey is rapidly taking over the nation one state at a time and their next stop is ‘South Park’ in an all-new episode of titled, ‘New Jersey,'” the release said.

“Everything east of the Rockies is now part of New Jersey! South Park is in danger of becoming West Jersey within the week,” according to the announcement. “As the Jerseyites spill into Colorado and approach South Park, Randy and the boys stand strong against the onslaught.”

Try and stop us, Stone and Parker. You both must be having a Rocky Mountain high if you think you can can get the best of the Garden State. Haven’t you ever seen the popular T-shirt, “New Jersey: Only the strong survive.”

One shot from the Jersey “South Park” episode depicts members of the bronzed and vulgar crew of MTV’s “Jersey Shore,” namely DJ Pauly D and The Situation, who inexplicably hasn’t been booted yet from “Dancing With the Stars.” Those two tanned, gelled Shore rats are leading a band of Jerseyites against South Park.

Another still shot has a “South Park” character wielding a “No Jersey” sign.

Perhaps we’ll also see “cast” members from other Jersey-based reality shows, like “Jerseylicious” and “The Real Housewives of New Jersey,” on “South Park.”

Hollywood can’t seem to get enough of Jersey. We understand that tonight’s episode of “Bones” features a visit to the Garden State.

MTVN honcho, and Jersey traitor, Doug Herzog

Not fur nuthin, but the appearance of “Jersey Shore” characters on “South Park” actually shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, since MTV and Comedy Central are both owned by the media giant Viacom.

And here’s a little secret for you: Doug Herzog, former Comedy Central chief and now president of the MTV Networks Entertainment Group (which includes Comedy Central) is from New Jersey. The city of Paterson, we believe. Et tu, Brute?

Comedy Central said there is no one available to talk about the episode, but that a clip of it will soon be posted on the “South Park” website.

Launched in 1997, “South Park,” now in its 14th season, remains the highest-rated series on Comedy Central. The show put the network, and Herzog, on the map.

On QVC Last Night, Joan Rivers Says Tiger Woods Rubs A Hooker For Good Luck

February 25, 2010

Joan Rivers was in rare form Wednesday night when she was on QVC with host Rick Domeier, and had us and Rick laughing out loud with her jokes about Tiger Woods and his hookers.

Is started out innocently enough, with Rivers showing off what must be her 1,000th interpretation of her signature bee pin. This one was called the “Buzzing Brightly” bee pin, and Rivers cited bees as a good luck charm.

Then Domeier opened the door, as lawyers say in court. He said that many athletes have lucky charms or rituals they do for good luck, like hitting the plate three times with a bat when they’re up to hit.

“Tiger Woods always hits a hooker on the head,” Rivers said, pretending she was Woods by saying, “Where’s my lucky hooker? I want to rub her. You rub worry beads. I want to rub my hooker.”

The camera stayed off Domeier, but you could hear him hysterically laughing in the background, along with us. Here’s the video.

While her comments may not sit well with QVC management, Rivers certainly gives it her all to promote her QVC jewelry. On Wedesday morning she had worn one of her necklaces, a large three-strand beaded piece, on “The Regis and Kelly Show.”

“He said, ‘I want one for Joy (Philbin’s wife),” Rivers said, adding that Kelly Ripka had also requested one of the $70 necklaces, too.

Last night Rivers also showed photos of herself wearing the necklace at the Sundance Film Festival, and she has it on for “The Rachael Ray Show” that she taped this week, to air next week.

Last night Rivers was also selling a huge cocktail ring, at $49, that she wore when she was roasted on Comedy Central.

“The roasts are bawdy, and I knew it was going to be bawdy,” Rivers said of the X-rated event.

As for the jewelry, she said, “What a nice way to give someone the finger, by wearing this ring.”
