Is Pauly D too big for ‘Dancing With the Stars'?
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!

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should Bert and Ernie get married?
There’s a big debate today over two beloved “Sesame Street” characters: Bert and Ernie. There’s a Facebook petition to encourage these two to get married.
For years there have been questions about Bert and Ernie’s sexuality. The “Sesame Street” folks have repeatedly denied they’re gay. But this petition is urging the show to have them “come out” and allow B and E to finally wed!
The petition states that having Bert and Ernie marry on the show would be a lesson to many people: “We are not asking that Sesame Street do anything crude or disrespectful by allowing Bert and Ernie to marry… Let us teach tolerance of those that are different. Let Sesame Street and PBS Kids be a big part in saving many worthy lives.”

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: Should Snooki do 'DWTS'?

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: The Jessica Simpson baby obsession
Another Jessica Simpson pregnancy rumor is circulating around the Web right now. The blonde pop star-turned-mogul was photographed in a tight beige dress in Beverly Hills, and as the pictures surfaced online, the Internet lit up with the possibility that she might be the latest celebrity with a baby bump.
Jessica’s rep quickly shot down the pregnancy rumors saying that “she is not pregnant,” but since these baby-on-board nuggets of gossip are so frequent for J-Simp we have to ask: Why are people so obsessed with Jessica having a baby?
Every time Jessica is photographed with extra weight or from a bad angle, everyone gets fired up that she might be expecting! I think everyone should leave Jess alone and wait until she announces that she’s actually pregnant before speculating.

'Showbiz Tonight' Flashpoint: First look at 'Jersey Shore' season 4
Although Italy might not have been excited about the “Jersey Shore” cast filming there, a clip of the cast shooting in Florence is surely giving hardcore fans something to fist pump about.
MTV just released a trailer for the new season, which debuts on August 4. Avid watchers will see the cast take part in their usual antics that we all know and love - despite the language barrier - like clubbing, hooking up and a whole lot of fighting.
The trailer gives us a glimpse of the news we heard about while the gang was taping. Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi gets put in “Italian jail” (as Michael "The Situation” Sorrentino calls it) after she hits a police car and sends two cops to the hospital. We also saw the aftermath of the fistfight between The Situation and Ronnie - someone leaves the house on a stretcher - as well as the build-up to the brawl.
Are you excited to watch the new season of “Jersey Shore” as the cast takes on Italy? Let us know what you think below and be sure to watch today's "Showbiz Tonight," exclusively at 11 p.m. ET/PT on HLN.
