New Details About Pauly D’s Spin-off, Plus Pics From The Photo Shoot!

Pauly takes a private moment in his dressing room amidst all the lights, camera, action.

Pauly D‘s style hasn’t changed much since his first days on “Jersey Shore,” except that he probably doesn’t pay much attention to price tags now that his DJ gigs bring in 5 figures a pop. Case and point: In a recent photo shoot for his upcoming MTV series, “The Pauly D Project,” the blowout devotee showed up to our set sporting studded Christian Louboutin sneakers. OH YEAH, he fancy now.

It was a chill day, as Pauly and his down-to-earth entourage goofed around with each other in front of the flashing bulbs. In attendance were PD’s bodyguard, Gerard “Big Jerry” Gialanella (who’s recently been on a health kick and might want to consider tweaking his nickname accordingly); his wingman (and Brody Jenner lookalike), Ryan Labbe; his road manager, Michael “Biggie” Morgan; and executive club promoter Jason “JROC” Craig (also known as “Mr. Vegas”), who looked like he just stepped off the pages of GQ.

The show follows Pauly and his wise-cracking buddies from their home state of Rhode Island all the way to Sin City, where nightly jam-packed gigs–as well as numerous DTFs–await at the infamous Palms Casino Resort. Also imminent are multiple stops along Britney Spears’ Femme Fatale tour and business meetings with 50 Cent. Cabs Limos are heeyaahhh!

+ Premiering March 29 at 10:30/9:30c (with a “Punk’d” lead-in at 10/9c), “The Project” is a must-see for any Pauly D admirer looking to peel back the layers of his exciting life. Check out some behind-the-scenes photos from the series’ official photo shoot, plus tell us if you’ll be watching!

The entire entourage sports a jazz-hands pose without shame.

It’s uncanny. Brody Jenner-lookalike Ryan (left) and JROC (right) MUST share the same eyebrow waxer.
