Pauly D’s stalker — real name: Vanessa Sky Ellis — was spotted plenty of times wearing “I HEART PAULY D” gear at Seaside Heights, and eventually got to meet the object of her affection. She gave us the creeps on Jersey Shore while she relentlessly stalked Pauly D, but apparently Pauly’s infamous stalker who gave him the heebie-jeebies wasn’t the first celeb she’s creeped on, as Vanessa is something of a “professional” celebrity stalker.
Yes, she stalks other celebrities. Vanessa recently appeared on TLC’s My Crazy Obsession in her own episode, where she shared her tricks and tips for hunting down her favorite celebrities, and apparently she’s still going at it today. Vanessa schedules her entire days around following celebrities, and over the past 7 years, has managed to snag over 10,000 autographs and pictures with famous people. Now that’s dedication!
“I’ll go after whoever, whenever,” she said on her TLC special. She reportedly doesn’t favor one star over another, though we beg to differ, as she was pretty damn keen over following Pauly D’s every move during filming of the show. However, Vanessa doesn’t believe in A-listers versus D-listers, as any celebrity is a celebrity to to her. Gaining another photograph helps Vanessa feel accomplished. Whatever floats your boat, we guess!
Vanessa was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, not too far from where Pauly currently resides in Rhode Island. Creepy... we hope their paths don’t cross again for Pauly’s sake!
Notably, in addition to her celeb stalking, she also Instagrams half-naked photos from her time go-go dancing on poles. Pauly D’s stalker lives quite an interesting life.
Are you surprised that Pauly’s stalker got her own TLC special? Is she totally creepy or kind of cool? Sound off below!
