VH1 launched a new series last night with the subtle title My Big Friggin' Wedding. It follows some lovely Jersey and Long Island girls as blushing brides, really anticipating their magical walk down the aisle. Basically, it's Bridezillas meets Jersey Shore meets My Super Sweet 16 with a dash of Teen Mom thrown in for good measure. Five couples are planning their big day, and we flip between them seeing how they all cope. While I can't see it having the same pop culture success as Jersey Shore, there is an addictive trainwreck quality about this show that makes it hard to look away from.
As a native of New Jersey and a witness to the increasing population of guidos in my predominantly Italian town way before MTV's cash cow Jersey Shore aired last year, I decided to re-explore the very location that I once vacationed at as a child, which has now become the epicenter of a cultural phenomenon. So, prepared to see sights that I could never forget (try as I might), I voyaged to where MTV has started filming the third season of the show: the Seaside Heights boardwalk. Or, as my peers and I have always called it, Sleazeside Heights.
