Only in Jersey: 2/3/12

Welcome to the fourth edition of Only in Jersey!

If it’s filming in Jersey, takes place in Jersey, or is about celebs from Jersey, you will find it here.

Expedia pitchman Michael Ian Black has found the humor in house hunting. The Hillsborough native has live-tweeted twice (most recently Tuesday night) during seemingly random reruns of the HGTV reality show “House Hunters International.” Joining him in exchanging witticisms is fellow funnyman (and “Daily Show with Jon Stewart” contributor) John Hodgman. Among Michael’s observations: “John, I prefer house #1. Second choice is #3. This means they will pick #2” and “Thank you, John. Once again, we have shown people that living overseas is always a tragic mistake.” If you’re interested in reading more of Michael’s “House Hunters International”-related tweets, check him out on Twitter. He is also the author of several books, including the upcoming “You’re Not Doing It Right: Tales of Marriage, Sex, Death, and Other Humiliations.”

“Jon & Kate Plus 8”: It’s a bizarro world after all

What the heck is going on here? Are we in “Seinfeld’s” Bizarro world or what?

Vodpod videos no longer available.

In addition to the new preview (see above) teasing Monday’s highly anticipated announcement on “Jon & Kate Plus 8” (at this point, if they don’t say they’re divorcing I’ll eat my hat), Radaronline has published a photo and story suggesting Jon Gosselin is addicted to nicotine.

Funny, after all the paparazzi photos, this is the only one that's captured Jon's need for weed?

What what what?

Radaronline quotes a source supposedly close to Jon as saying, “Socially I witnessed him smoking a hookah at some parties, and he really seemed to enjoy smoking flavored tobaccos, too.

“… Although I wouldn’t say he was a ‘heavy smoker,’ he definitely enjoyed a cigarette from time to time.”

And while TLC is forcing us to wait – some with bated breath – for Monday’s revelation, the TV Guide Network promises to tide us over with “Jon and Kate: Is It Too Late?” (Apparently every one of these specials must rhyme. Ridiculous.) The special, which airs at 8 tonight, will rehash the Pennsylvania couple’s relationship. It also will feature interviews with the Gosselins’ friends and neighbors. (Frankly, if they’re talking to the press, I’d question their classification as “friends.”)

And now there are reports circulating that Jon is shopping apartments in Manhattan – specifically Trump property.

Does that mean Jon will be in the next season of “Celebrity Apprentice”? Stranger things have happened.
