JWOWW doesn’t want ‘Jersey Shore’ cast replaced

HollywoodNews.com: ‘Jersey Shore’ has reportedly wrapped another season of filming, which has led to rumors of a possible seventh season that would be slightly different.
It has been rumored that as the current cast is growing up, a new cast may be brought in for the next season of ‘Jersey Shore,’ states Hollyscoop. However, that won’t happen if Jenni “JWOWW” Farley has anything to say about it.
“I would go off on MTV [if that happened]. I would burn down that house,” JWOWW laughed.
And even if they try, JWOWW doesn’t think it will be a success: “They didn’t recreate ‘The Hills’ because who could replace ‘The Hills?’ Who could recreate ‘The Jersey Shore’ without it turning into ‘The Real World?’”
Do you think they will hire a new cast?

D.A. Pennebaker, inventor of the music video, turns 85

HollywoodNews.com: D.A. (Donn Alan) Pennebaker turns 85 today, years young.
All those so called documentary shows that clutter TV– from the Real World to Celebrity Rehab–spring from the cinema verite that Pennebaker and his cohorts Ricky Leacock, Albert Maysles, and a few others invented more than 50 years ago.
Pennebaker broke ground in the mid 60s when he made “Dont Look Back” with Bob Dylan. Still considered the quintessential music film, “Dont Look Back” became an instant classic for its style, substance and form. You feel as though you’re actually with Dylan, Joan Baez, and friends.
A couple of years later, Pennebaker filmed “Monterey Pop,” the festival that introduced America to its new generation of pop stars from the Mamas and the Papas to Janis Joplin and Otis Redding. Each one of them became icons, as did Pennebaker.
Pennebaker also credited with making the first and most influential music video–Bob Dylan dropped cards in “Subterranean Homesick Blues.” It’s impossible to say how many times it’s been imitated.
It would be another dozen or more years before the filmmaker, with his wife (DGA Award winner) Chris Hegedus, would create the Oscar nominated “War Room.” But in between and before Pennebaker’s journeys would take him into politics with Bobby Kennedy and Jane Fonda, Broadway with Carol Burnett, roots music with the Coen Brothers, and dozens more places. His film of the making of the album for “Company,” the Stephen Sondheim musical, is really and truly legendary. His work in it with Elaine Stritch led to them winning an Emmy years later for an HBO Stritch documentary.
