Ryan Labbe must be a big fan of "Jersey Shore" because he tried to inject some of its drunken revelry into the second episode of "The Pauly D Project" (Thu., 10:30 p.m. ET on MTV). The social director went way beyond social drinking and into the realm of blackout drunk, complete with the negative attitude adjustment and lack of self-awareness that goes with it.
He started picking a fight for no reason, as Biggie pointed out. Jerry tried to rein him in, but he simply didn't care. Why not? It's not like he was going to remember any of it the following morning, so why not make their time in the club memorable for everybody else.
It's perhaps not the best face to put out there for Pauly's career as a DJ, but when it comes to reality television, Ryan is just the infusion of drunken craziness this show needs to compete with the "Real Housewives" and "Jersey Shore" and all those other shows putting a spotlight on drunken debauchery.
Pauly D said that Ryan's ten shots is too many shots, but the producer was probably thinking that was just right. Pauly wants to make music, but they're trying to make great television.
"The Paul D Project" continues Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET on MTV.
