Pot, Meet Kettle: Mob Boss Calls Jersey Shore Boys a “Disgrace to Italians”
Ever wonder what the mafia makes of the self-proclaimed “guidos” of theJersey Shore? Well, wonder no more.
TMZ ran into former Philadelphia crime family boss “Skinny Joey” Merlino — who served a dozen years in prison for racketeering — on Wednesday at LAX, and he slammed the Jersey Shore men, Ronnie,Vinny,Pauly D andMike “The Situation, ”by saying, “They’re a disgrace to the Italians.”
Asked whether any of the four might be suitable for the “family,” Joey said, “No comment.”
So … Does mean the mob doesn’t celebrate T-shirt time and jump on grenades for each other at the nightclub? Shocker!
