What's the point of being a reality star if you can't live it up with other celebs? The Jersey Shore cast members have wasted no time integrating themselves into the ranks of Hollywood C-listers (and sometimes, A-listers). Here are some of our favorite random Jersey Shore-other celeb connections that have been made over the years.

Deena and the Manzos: Honestly, it makes perfect sense that Deena Nicole and the Real Housewives of New Jersey's Manzo family would make friends. Deena is just ballsy and ridiculous enough to fit right in.

Vinny and Miley Cyrus: This one is far more random. Why are Vinny and Miley Cyrus friends? We don't know, but they've definitely hung out.

Pauly D and Britney Spears: Okay, this one is less random (Pauly is a DJ and toured with her in 2011), but we still can't believe he actually got a lap dance from Britney freaking Spears.

Pauly D and 50 Cent: Speaking of things we still have a hard time believing: how did Pauly score a record deal with 50 Cent? Talk about leveraging your fame!

Snooki and Kim Kardashian: Other than being reality stars, Snooki and Kim Kardashian don't have a whole lot in common. But that didn't stop them from laughing it up together at a Mavericks/Nets game.

Snooki, JWOWW, and the Mob Wives: They may all be from the Tri-State area and have reality shows, but otherwise we don't think Snooki and JWOWW have a whole lot in common with the Mob Wives. And yet they met up with Mob Wives stars Drita Davanzo and Carla Facciolo while in the middle of a radio show tour, and snapped a pic to prove it.

JWOWW and Steve-O: Okay, they may have only hung out long enough for this one red carpet picture to be taken, but this is still a weird combo.
