MTV Responds to Screenwriter Claiming He Created 'Jersey Shore'


The network said they have been doing the guidos and guidettes business two years before Christopher Gambale pitched his idea in 2006.

MTV is not letting some guy claimed he created the original idea of "Jersey Shore". The network has responded to the claim that screenwriter Christopher Gambale came forward with "Guidos: The Reality Series" which is about "stereotypical guidos and guidettes" doing things like "GTL before hitting the clubs."

Gambale said he pitched the idea in 2006 but never got a response from MTV until he issued a letter threatening to present them with a lawsuit. However, MTV insisted that they had been thinking about guidos reality show since 2004, taking example of "My Cousin Vinny," "Saturday Night Fever," and "Growing Up Gotti".

Plus, MTV also reminded Gambale that they ran "True Life: I'm A Jersey Girl" which featured "Tan young men with spiked hair and tight shirts" back in 2004.

MTV said in a letter obtained by TMZ that Gambale does not have a case against them. But, Gambale told the publication that he is not threatened.

The third season of "Jersey Shore" airs January 6, 2011.
