'It¹s his personality, the fact he's irresistible, all of the above and the moment we got together I knew that I would marry Charlie.
If you¹ve been good friends you¹ve got a good base for love.'Before going public with Brooker earlier this summer, Huq revealed she was hoping to start a family too. My parents know that I want to get married and have kids.
On the face of it, Jersey Shore is a reality show in which some tanned, whooping idiots live in a beach house for a month: a splice of Big Brother and Ibiza Uncovered featuring a uniformly unlikable bunch of infuriating, loud, over-confident pillocks. What's eye-opening is that the entire cast appears to be drawn from one minority group – namely Italian-Americans.
I didn't know much about Italian-Americans before watching Jersey Shore.
The presenters have always seemed a slightly strange pairing, but they defied the sceptics by getting engaged a few months ago.
Step four: group them together in a house decorated with Italian flags and Scarface posters. Various advertisers, including Domino's Pizza and Dell Computers, pulled their commercials following the debut episode.
Step five: give them booze, film them behaving like shallow sex-crazed thugs, calling each other "guido", etc. New York Post TV critic Linda Stasi (herself an Italian-American) accused the show of "furthering the popular TV notion that Italian-Americans are gel-haired, thuggish ignoramuses with fake tans, no manners, no diction, no taste, no education, no sexual discretion, no hairdressers (for sure), no real knowledge of Italian culture and no ambition beyond expanding steroid- and silicone-enhanced bodies into sizes best suited for floating over Macy's on Thanksgiving." In summary: Jersey Shore isn't very nice.
