Pauly D had an incredible year last year outside of the ‘Jersey Shore’ house as he signed on with the Palms in Las Vegas to DJ for the hotel, toured with Britney Spears and landed a record deal with 50 cent, now he can add his own reality show called ‘The Pauly D Project’ to his list of accomplishments – 2011 was the year of DJ Pauly D, there’s no question about that.
At first we had our reservations about Pauly D leaving his ‘Jersey Shore’ buddies behind since so much of his personality is brought out by his friends in the shore house and his bromance with Vinny, but MTV has just released a first look at Pauly’s spin off and we were happy to see that he has brought along some fresh new faces on his adventures who are just as hilarious as he is.
The trailer introduces Pauly’s family, showing fans around Rhode Island where he lives with his dad. We also got an introduction to his mentor ‘Biggie’ who is absolutely adorable, his bodyguard Jerry and his ‘wingman’ Ryan. At one point we see Biggie look at the camera with his eyes filled with tears and says; “I wake up every morning and I thank God that he’s had these opportunities and he brought me along.” – like we said completely adorable.
The trailer felt a lot like we were watching a real life episode of ‘Entourage’ and we suspect the show will have a lot of those elements. While we are hoping that Pauly’s new show is a huge success, we also cling onto the hope that he will return to ‘Jersey Shore’ in the future, because it just wouldn’t be the same without Pauly D.
Check out MTV’s trailer for ‘The Pauly D Project’ and let us know if you will be tuning in.
