Snooki and JWOWW are just like Laverne and Shirley, producer says

Despite sporting hair poofs and animal print in place of pixie cuts and monogrammed sweaters, Snooki and JWOWW are the modern-day Laverne and Shirley, producer SallyAnn Salsano said.

Salsano, the creator of MTV's “Jersey Shore” and “Snooki & JWOWW,” which premiered on Thursday, told CNN Snooki and JWOWW are a lot like Penny Marshall and Cindy Williams' characters on the '70s sitcom.

"Just sitting around and chatting with them, you could be there for hours. They really are your girlfriends next door," she said, noting that she'll be present for the birth of Snooki's baby.

“Chances are, because of my relationship to Snooki, I will be there whether the cameras are there or not," Salsano said. "Her whole behind-the-scenes family ... will be there."

    I'd say they're more like Beavis and Butthead.

    Yeah, they're close all right. The only thing that comes between them is a 12-inch strap-on.

      So easy to correct that mistake. Vote for the other guy. He's no Reagan, but at least he's not Obama. If you don't vote, you have no right to complain. I get so tired of people who whine about politics but don't take part in the process. Wake up America! Get off your a$$es and get involved before the Liberal Social Agenda steamrolls right over you!

    Is there a reason JBow Wow always looks like she has a mouth full of Lemon Drops. Basic East Coast Trash Women.

      True, the East coast thinks of themselves as culturally superior, but honestly 99.5% of them are just like these two, full of gonorrhea and silicone, even the men.
