Jersey Shore’s Snooki was arrested due to disorderly conduct on the beach at the end of July. The disorderly conduct was brought on by a bender of power drinking, according to the NY Post. Snooki’s recent pictures are showing a bloated swollen Snooki, which is one tell tale sign of someone who drinks too much.
The MTV hit, Jersey Shore, not only condones this type of behavior, but actually encourages this by bringing the alcohol saturated cast back for season 2 and 3. This is the stuff the viewers tune in to watch.
The filming of Snooki getting arrested is just one way the MTV show is exploiting this young girl. She is in desperate need of an intervention, but instead her condition is used for entertainment value.
This unethical strategy for TV ratings needs to stop. It was one thing to watch a group of young adults having cocktails and dancing in a club, it is another to continue to film the demise of a young girl through her addiction with alcohol.
In a recent RadarOnline interview with her ex-boyfriend, Emilo Masella, he said Snooki drinks until she drops then will get up and do it all over again. He did say that he felt Snooki was in fear of losing her favorite with the fans status on the Jersey Shore hit show, especially with the new girl Deena Nicole joining the cast. She is competition to Snooki, Masella said.
Whether Snooki’s drunken arrest antics were done to keep her name in fame or not, even Masella admits her drinking problem runs deeper than that. MTV’s appears to have a “drink to you drop so we can film it” mentality when it comes to the Jersey Shore cast.
Snooki is in trouble, the arrest at the Jersey Shore came after drinking on Friday morning. A bartender from the Aztec Ocean Resort said that Snooki had three shots of tequila and a Long Island ice tea and then went next door to a bar with friends around noon and the group was already inebriated.
In the story posted in NY Daily News, another bartender from EJ’s said Snooki could be seen wobbling in the sand until she finally fell and could not get up. She was on her knees trying to get her balance. This is what a hit show is about?
Where is MTV’s responsibility in all this, not only is Snooki making a complete full of herself, but she could end up with alcohol poisoning which could be fatal. The responsible thing to do would be to get this girl some help and not on Celebrity Rehab so she can continue her fame.
Snooki’s ex told RadarOnline that Celebrity Rehab has always been a dream for her. It would be unethical for Dr Drew to take her on under these circumstances. She needs to get off the reality TV merry-go-round and get some private professional help.
MTV’s Jersey Shore is capturing and audience of young teens, many who will aspire to this type of behavior. It is time someone put the brakes on how far reality TV is willing to go to get the ratings. This is a tragedy waiting to happen.
