Only in Jersey: 3/21/12

Happy Hump Day, everyone! Time for another 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.

Sayreville’s native son Jon Bon Jovi gets the Oprah treatment when the rock singer is featured in “Oprah’s Master Class,” airing at 10 p.m. Sunday on OWN. In an exclusive clip to “Entertainment Tonight,” Jon gives credit for his success in the music business to his hometown mentor. “And a man by the name of Al Parinello moved in across the street from my childhood home, and he was in a club band,” Jon reveals. “He was like, a hip guy, and he showed us how to play songs – and he showed me how to play ‘House of the Rising Sun.’ … When you learn a song, you start to think about songs, when you think about songs you want to write songs. When you write songs, you get to be here… Thanks to his encouragement, I stayed with it.”

Move over, Florence: The kids are back in Seaside!/All photos by Ava Gacser

I was down the Shore last Tuesday, July 26, to celebrate my birthday at Island Beach State Park, which is adjacent to Seaside Heights, the home of “Jersey Shore.” On a whim, I decided to drive by the infamous den of iniquity just to see what it looked like in person. Seriously, I had no expectations other than that.

Well, guess what? I drove (then walked) right into the middle of filming for the show! Happy birthday to me!

So I attended the “Twilight” convention in Parsippany this weekend, and there were more wolves there than you could shake a fist at.

Whoa, Nelly! You don't want to see us angry.

Here’s the highlights (in my opinion, anyway) of what the stars said/did. Alas, Robert Pattinson was not in attendance.

The sextet appeared on another hilarious segment of “Tonight Show with Jay Leno” this week, where they do what they do best: parody themselves. And hey, it works well for them. (And I give The Situation major points for having more of a clue than the rest of the bunch.)

Case in point: The group took time out from their busy GTL schedules to film several clips spoofing several Oscar-nominated films for TBS’ “Lopez Tonight” – and proved that they are indeed funniest when they stick to mocking themselves…
