First, “Jersey Shore” cast member Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino tried to dance his way to the mirror ball trophy on the 11th season of “Dancing With the Stars.”
Then “The Situation’s” housemate Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi was rumored to be joining the latest season of the ABC dance show. So why would their "Shore" roommate Pauly D say he’s too good for "DWTS"?
During a recent interview with a New York television show, Pauly D, who is on tour with Britney Spears, says he doesn’t think he’ll be fist-pumping on the “Dancing With the Stars” dance floor anytime soon. He says, “I will do ‘Dancing With the Stars’ when my career dips.”
Over the 12 seasons of “DWTS,” the dance floor has attracted some big name stars – Kim Kardashian, Kirstie Alley, Donny and Marie Osmond, just to name a few. I don’t think Pauly D meant he was bigger than these stars, but what do you think? Is Pauly D too big to dance for the mirror ball trophy?
Who do you think should be on the new season of “Dancing With the Stars”? Post below and watch our big debate on this, tonight at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN!

He is too big as in too fat!!
He said he will do Dancing with the Stars when his career "dips". The clock has started, dude. About 10 minutes left of your 15.
TOO BIG???? I talked to a girl in Florence who said that he was too small, way too small. Maybe he should try out for Toddlers in Tiaras, instead of Dancing with the Falling Stars
I think this guy is a big star. I mean he war pretty awsome as the young darth vader in the star wars movies.
HA , He couldnt roast Donald Trump on comedy central or anyone of the guest, Bet he cant dance either. I cant wait to see this if it happens I need another good laugh. I guess the first embarrassment didnt sink in his head.
I think they would have to pair up Pauly D(ame) to dance with men, since he has such a girly naired body and such a "pretty" head of crown hair...Poeple may fear to dance with him, for his slick sweat and greasy hair will make the dance floor too slippery to dance on!
When his 15 minutes of fame is up, he'll move back in with mom and be working deliverying pizzas at the local pizza shoppe on federal hill in Providence! –Not only do RI politicians embarrass us, so now TV reality "stars" like Richard Hatch and this Jersey shore meathead!
Young Paul (ie) and has pals give New Jersey a bad name. Half these hoodlums are not even from NJ. What horrible role models these freaky kids make they all look like they are in their 40s. What garbage. Throw the trash out.
Isn't this guy suppose to be in his early twenties? All that partying and boozing looks to be taking its toll on him. He has the puffy eyelids, leathery-looking skin, and crow's feet of a man twice his age.
Pauly D is NOT in his twenties, he is at least 32. He used to DJ in the late 90's in RI. I never saw him, but knew poeple (unfortunately) that went to the (crappy dance music) clubs in RI. I thought he was gay-he used to DJ at MANY of the RI gay clubs.
his ego, perhaps
You can dress black, talk black and act black but when you have to dance.... I think we know the rest.
Hasn't it already been 15 minutes...
he's a TOOLl ! and TOOLS don't dance !
IT WOULD BE JUST AWESOME IF THEY COULD GET JOHN TRAVOLTA ON "DWTS"!! HE'S THE MAN!!!! REMEMBER URBAN COWBOY?? MY FAV.!!! JOHN TRAVOLTA! JOHN TRAVOLTA!. JOHN TRAVOLTA!
^^–well, i should've known.. after piglet Kristie Alley, none should be considered too big(fat) for the show!!... I <3 u George Lopez!!!
hahaha... i clicked on this cuz i thought it meant too big-as in too buff, or possibly too fat for the show, L-O-L!!!!
No way he's too big for DWTS! What's big is his superinflated ego! Your 15 minutes are almost up, I hope, anyway. Nobody knew who you were not too long ago, nobody will care soon, at least not me.
It's precisely comments like, “I will do ‘Dancing With the Stars’ when my career dips.” that actually make a career "dip". Being humble is what gets people far in life. Good luck Pauly D, hope it lasts longer than you think.
"fist pumping"?? really?
He is bigger than some old fogey named Kate.
Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what he meant.. To be a real participant on DWTS it takes a lot of time and dedication. That's something that he can't commit to atm. When the time does come free "dips" He would do DWTS..
Don't blame a guy for being on show that you despise. If you don't like JShore, don't watch it, that simple. He gets paid a good amount of money to drink and have a good time, it would be stupid of him NOT to continue doing the show.
As for him not having anything besides that to fall back on? He was just hired as the resident DJ at the Palms in Las Vegas, I'd say that's a pretty good gig to have for a career.
And for the moron who asked if Brittney Spears was still relivent in the music world, do you listen to the radio? She is currently on tour promoting an album she just made
...ignorant people shouldn't be allowed on forums
Agreed. People are quick to judge but don't realize the actual point to the story. I too would be happy w/ a gig in Vegas, that's BIG!! As far as being paid to drink and party, I don't think I would personally like that type of negative attention. Hey in all reality, to each his own!!
Great comment BTW!!!
FYI... there were more viewers watching Jersey Shore last week, then Boston vs yankees game. Whats the world coming to!
To each his own! I love Pauly D and his mixes... POP culture is every changing. I know some DJs who make bank spinning the oneie twoies. As for not doing DWTS... its a good show, but he's busy. B-Spears may not be your cup of tea, but she is the mini-Madonna of my generation. Pauly-D may eventually do the show and I know all you closed minded haters will be sitting there with your frozen dinners and wine coolers enjoying every second of your t-voed POP culture obession.
I say if you can make big doing what you love for only 15 mins... at least you did it!!! More than most can say...
I love reading most of the comments on here….. you people all make me laugh. This guys probably makes more money in 4 or 5 nights of work ( last I heard he was getting paid between 10 and 20 thousand a night to DJ at clubs and parities) then most people on the forum make in a year.
AND he is making $100,000 an episode on Jersey Shore.
Put positive vibes out and you may get your's too! (stop the hate all you others...)
Well, that's because most of the commenters are kids who still live with their parents... what do you expect?
He needs to get a haircut – the "fade" went out in the mid 1990's – And yeah his ego is way to big – maybe he should go on DWTS – because like Sorrentino (I REFUSE TO CALL HIM THAT OTHER NAME) – his ego would be torn down quite a few notches, might do him some good to realize that to the majority of the world – he's a big nobody!
When his career Dips???? What Career??? Isn't he the Dip???
Who is Pauly D? Is he a rapper? What is his talent that makes him famous? Does he have any talent?
Pauly D?Never heard of him until I saw this story.
Should be called Dancing with the Has Beens and Reality Fame Wh**rs
When is The Situation/Pauly gayLove tapes gonna be released?
Snooki will produce and do commentary on the DVD special Edition on those!
Kardashian's Famous?? Whoo Whoo that's a laugh!
Name one film they have been in? NONE!
Reality TV does not make one famous. It makes them infamous!
I read all of these comments, with the exception of one true star with actual TALENT, the list is pretty, well LAME!
For Sean Connery's name to appear with this list or pathetic excuses for Hollywood Fame is insulting!
This idiot lives one town over from me in Rhode Island. I would hear his caddy before seeing it he's just an average wigger who got lucky. As far as his comment I defer to Sean Connery in The Untouchables "just like a dago. Brings a knife to a gun fight"
Your description of Pauly D is right on the money! Glad to hear a fellow RIer tell the truth!
Why wouldnt Paulette wanna do DWTS? I hear they are gay friendly and ever welcome the butch lesbeans.
Who is that girl, and why would she be too important for DWTS?
MAYBE HE JUST DOESNT WANT TO DO THE SHOW, THE SHOW DOES KINDA SUCK ANYWAYS WHY WOULD HE DO THAT WHEN HE HAS OTHER STUFF (TOUR W BRITTNEY SPEARS) DOING WHAT HE LOVES TO DO WHICH IS TO DJ!! DUH IDIOTS GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ASSES, AS FOR SNOOK NO COMMENT THAT BRAWD NEEDS TO QUIT.
When his career dips? In that case he should be serving the dancers drinks on dancing with the stars as some sort of cater waiter.
You do notice that the people going on DWTS typically aren't REALLY working actors or stars. Retired sports players, actors and actresses that haven't had a current movie or TV show in about 5-10 years. . . .
Wait, he has a career? This is nothing more than an extended train wreck that people watch in horror . His "dip" will be a brick wall, there will be no invitation to dance. Hopefully those celb rehab and reality shows will be over too cause thats the only chance he would have to extend his "career'.
you r insulting my bff
Who is Paulie D?
ya the greasy italian will look good in leotards ! come on gays have rights too... leave the mo alone.
stop giving these losers press, please, so they can disappear as fast as they came
Touring with Britney Spears, that explains a lot about his brain power...what a moron.
....Would he be a moron because he's touring with a successful artist? That's how you make money in the music industry. Maybe you're the moron for thinking that touring with a successful million dollar artist is stupid.
Pauly definitely has become successful in the music industry if a pop icon such as Britney Spears asked him to go on tour with her.
Your McDonald's lunch break is over, time to clock back in.....
Paulie D is not a musician–he scratches records....Brtiney is not a musician either. she doesn't even sing live–All she does is push play on a cd player, lip synches and giggles all over the stage in-between costume changes....And at the end of the night they say "SUCKERS!" and laugh all the way to the bank at all the stupid kids (and their parents that buy their "concert" tickets) and the overgrown 30 year olds (such as jersey shore castmates) that likes the garbage they do!
He probably has better offers right now, but I doubt DWTS will still be interested when his "career" dips.
Well he kinda has a point. Stars do that show when their career is typically in a slump.
However, a slump for those stars is often still better than his best day.
Dancing with the Stars: Where "Has Been" and "Never Was" actors go to die.
I think his ego is too big.
Whether people want to admit to knowing who he is or not, it's one of the highest rated shows on cable television and most of the cast has more current exposure than the other "stars [of yesteryear]" who go on this show. And he's right to decide to go on the show later- when his career "dips", because it's at it's height right now. Everyone can exclaim, "Pauly who?" but the fact is, millions upon millions of people do know who he is, and he'd bring in an audience that DWTS doesn't usually hold. Whoever his manager is.... they're doing a good job.
Highest rated show on cable... So what, like maybe 3 million veiwers? Yeah thats really popular.
Anybody who goes by Pauly isn't too big for anything.
Ummmm...who is pauly D?
Wow! Like really DJ'ing is not something that is going to be for long term, he had better jump on pocketing the offers $$$ like DWTS before he dries up, looks in the mirror and sees an old dried up Italian with no career.
Hello ~ on tour w/ Brittney Spears?!? Is she producing albums? Is she still relevant in the music world? DWTS wants "stars" that have little dance background (Alfonso Riberio appeared in 1 Michael Jackson video & tapped as a child and they won't take him). How is "fist-pumping" equal dancing?
It's called marketing. Unfortunately, more people would tune in to see someone that's relevant in the current news (positive or negative), than someone that's been out of the spotlight.
It's what interests the current demographic...... who care who's on the other end, .it's all about $$$.
didnt her latest album chart 3 top 10 singles?
Where do you get your info from? If that is the case why have Mya who studied dance since she was 2?
Well he does actually have a career other than getting drunk on "Jersey Shore". He is on tour DJ'ing for Britney Spears and I believe he's worked with a few other artists. So he really doesn't have to be on DWTS until all of that dries up.
I doubt they will want him once his "career dips". I think it will do much more than dip, btw.
PaulyD and Snooki are to ugly and stupid for that show.
If you're going to criticize someone, correct your grammar. It's "TOO", not "TO".
1. A word that means, "in addition", or "in excess".
2. A word that people with an IQ below 100 seem to believe does not exist. They will often replace with the incorrect variant "to", which does not mean the previous definition.
Pauly D and Snooki both have very successful careers thanks to Jersey Shore.
e...Jersey Shore ...if you think this "program" creates stars....think again. All it does is show the whole world that people from New Jersey have no class,,,and are a bunch of drunken nobodies....
I would never list any of those people as stars.
I think Cleo meant- they are tooooooooooooooooooooooooooo ugly and tooooooooooooooooooooooo stupid for that show. I can't stand it when people try to be superior because they know how to spell.
Paulie D is not a star & probably has 2 left feet! He & his cast members could fall off a cliff Yesterday & the world would not care or miss them! They are spoiled brats who think they are a Big Deal! Paulie D seems to be the only 1 with a career to fall back on O he will need it, soon!!
Kim Kardashian, Kirstie Alley and the Osmonds are NOT big stars. Never were. Never will be.
Never were, never will be? Kim Kardashian just made 18 million from her wedding. Kirstie Alley was the biggest star on Television back in the early 90's. The Osmonds were never big stars? How old are you – eight?
Perhaps Snarky your true nature of bitterness is showing
Kirstie Alley won and Emmy and a Golden Globe. That makes her a star.
As far as this guy, pauly D? Yeah, he'll be winning major awards.. NOT.
I had to look up who pauly d was. A big star? No. The butt of every joke. Yes. He shouuld enjoy his few minutes of fame and good fortune.
What a fool
Who is Pauly D?????
Really?? LOL you should "google it" before making your point known.
This guy is delusional...Who is he again??? Oh yes, part of that trashy sensation of people from NJ, soon Pauly, soon your 15 minutes will expire...TICK TOCK!!!!
seriously?!?!?!?! who is Pauly?
I agree with you on Kim Kardashian, but you're nuts if you think Kirstie Alley and Donny and Marie have never been big stars. Emmy awards, platinum albums, sold-out concerts, Broadway... nuts, I tell ya.
The Osmonds were never big stars? You either are an old dufus or a dumb kid that doesn't know what they are talking about. Have you heard of the Donnie and Marie Show? It was on for 4 seasons in the 70's and the Osmonds were as big as the Jackson 5 in the 70's.
Yes, and Kristie Allie not a big star? ever hear of the TV show Cheers? It was on tv for like, what 15 years? You've either been living in a hole for the past 35 years or you're just an uneducated and uncultured child....
