For years we turned to MTV to watch the cast members of ‘Jersey Shore’ get tanked and destroy the businesses, beachside, and rental properties of the New Jersey coastline. Now that Hurricane Sandy schooled them on how it’s really done, the network wants to help put it all back together again for future generations to destroy.
Starting at 11 p.m. (Eastern) on Thursday night, MTV's 'Restore the Shore' will feature “some of entertainment’s biggest stars” helping to raise money for the Seaside Heights rebuilding effort.
Those humanitarians on the cast of the 'Jersey Shore' are known for saving the world one drunk and disorderly at a time, but when Hurricane Sandy struck and destroyed much of the East Coast -- including their beloved Seaside Heights -- the gang put aside their GTL routine to actually do something philanthropic.
(They'll know what that means once they look it up.)
If you could assemble the perfect concert, chances are good it would include Sting, Christina Aguilera, Billy Joel, Mary J. Blige and Bruce Springsteen -- and Friday night saw that group and more use their powers for good when they performed on Friday night's Hurricane Sandy special, with all money benefiting the Red Cross.
When they were shooting their rather unreal reality show ‘Jersey Shore’ in Seaside Heights, N.J., the cast never seemed too concerned with the condition of their home-away-from-home. They were always getting stupid drunk and making fools of themselves while making a complete mess of wherever they happened to be.
And even though they seemed like human versions of cyclones themselves, they want to help with the Hurricane Sandy clean-up efforts on the destroyed Jersey shore.
