Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is celebrating the messyness…
The 33-year-old Chilean reality television star and Jersey Shore star will host MTV’s Messyness, a spinoff from the producers of Ridiculousness.
Like the original MTV series hosted by Rob Dydrek, Messyness is a comedy clip series that indulges in the most debaucherous clips found on the internet – everything from awkward proposals, to nights out gone wrong and cheaters caught red handed.
Messyness seeks to celebrate dating, partying and all the messy stages of young adulthood.
Also joining Snooki on the Messyness stage are panelists Tori Spelling, Adam Rippon and Teddy Ray.
The series is currently in production and slated to premiere later this year.
Messyness is produced by Thrill One Media and Gorilla Flicks, with Rachel Tung and Jessica Zalkind serving as executive producers for MTV.
The Snooki-fronted series is the latest of the Ridiculousness spinoffs. In November, MTV ordered Deliciousness, a food-focused spinoff hosted by Alexa & Katie alumna Tiffani Thiessen.
The Latino actor has been cast as a series regular in Fox’s single-camera comedy pilot Amy’s Brother.
Pinzon, who most recently starred in Mystery Girls, will star opposite Ursula Parker and Annie Mumolo in the comedy project, which is being produced by the husband-and-wife duo of Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone and Warner Bros Television.
Written and co-executive produced by Jim Cashman and Mitch Silpa, and directed by Beth McCarthy Miller, Amy’s Brother is about an unconventional family that is formed when a successful type-A man, Matthew, and his estranged sister, Amy (Mumolo), and her two children find themselves not only back in one another’s lives but also living under one roof.
Pinzon will portray Josh, Amy’s brother Matthew’s extremely devoted assistant at the real estate office.
Pinzon was nominated for Choice TV Breakout Star: Male at the 2014 Teen Choice Awards for starring as Nick opposite Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth on ABC Family’s Mystery Girls sitcom.
He also guest-starred on Young & Hungry, 30 Rock and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Entitled “Amplify Your Voice,” the campaign features a series of PSAs with celebrities and young people speaking out against anti-LGBT bullying.
The ads urge viewers to take a stand against anti-LGBT bullying and direct viewers to GLAAD.org for resource kits offering best practices to parents, teachers and students. The free kits feature resources from organizations like the American Federation of Teachers, GLSEN, the National Center for Transgender Equality and The Trevor Project.
Other celebrities appearing in the spots include LGBT advocate and Dancing With the Stars competitor Chaz Bono, Tori Spelling, Parks and Recreation‘s Amy Poehler and the cast of ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars.”
Meanwhile, GLAAD also revealed the plan for “Spirit Day” on Thursday, October 20, in which businesses like MTV and AT&T will adopt purple logos and people will wear purple to stand against LGBT bullying. Bravo’s Andy Cohen, MTV’s Steve-O and “Top Chef” host Padma Laksmi have confirmed that they’ll participate in this year’s “Spirit Day.”
