JWoww Heading From ‘Jersey Shore’ to Llanview For an Appearance on One Life to Live?





New One Life to Live hire Jessie Malakouti tweeted an Instagram of herself and a very famous reality starlet, hanging at the Connecticut studio for The Online Network (TOLN). Does this mean Jersey Shore is about to invade Llanview, Pennsylvania?!

Tweets from Jenni "JWoww" Farley appear to confirm the stunt casting. Are you excited about seeing JWoww mix it up on OLTL when the sudser returns starting April 29? Sound off in the comments!

    WHAT ARE THEY THINKING?! I get that they want some stunt casting to get curious viewers but those viewers seldom stay and you end up losing your loyal viewers. But some ‘Jersey Shore’ trash? Is it 2009 in that Connecticut studio? Again, I ask, are they ripping pages from a book called How To Ruin Your Show and Alienate Your Viewers?

    I assume it is a one episode bit part and she’ll only have a few lines, so I’m not going to get my panties in a bunch over this. At least they aren’t filling the show with old sitcom stars.

    [quote] Definitely won’t be ‘tuning in’ now. The show hasn’t aired one ep and they ruin it.

    You aren’t going to watch because a reality star has a bit part? I’m pretty sure all the soaps have done it now.

    Bold and Beautiful had that Bachelor guy on as a pilot. OLTL had Kortney Kardashian as a lawyer. Days used to have Ross Mathews pop up. It isn’t that serious.

    Not ONE freakin’ episode has aired and y’all are already bitching. Most likely, it’s a bit part in one episode. Get over it. As for me, I will reserve my judgment until I’ve viewed a good portion of the episodes. I’m a REAL OLTL fan – I’m supporting it all the way.

    Good grief i’m to the point were some people need to be told to “get over it” and be happy that your soap operas will be continuing stop bitching about bit parts going to actors/characters from Jersey Shore! There are plenty of fans who would do anything to see there soaps return.

    Even though this is the equivalent of scraping the bottom of the barrel, it makes sense from a publicity standpoint. After all, they could have hired that damn Octomess or Kate Gossless instead……. :D

    BTW, Soap Digest says this is a recurring role, not a one time thing. I was never suggesting that I wouldn’t watch or wasn’t grateful the show is back, I’m merely questioning some odd decisions. I guess I’m one of the few that doesn’t think that reality stars are actual celebrities or worth caring about.

    Meh..its not a big deal to me. If the gal can act, I say bring her on…as recurring.

    I mean, what about when Kyle Brandt went from The Real World: Chicago to Philip Kiriakis on DAYS….its kind of the same thing.

    I’ll reserve judgment til later…but yeah, I understand why people think it’s odd….because it kind of is.

    At the very least they could try stunt casting with relevant reality people like a Mob Wife or a Real Housewife. People stopped caring about the Jersey Shore before OLTL went off the air the first time.

    I, for one, am slightly excited about this. I hated Jersey Shore, but it was like a car accident…you just can’t look away!! And Jenni was the only one with common sense and seemed to be serious with her life, so I’m glad it was her who got the part and not any of the others.

    ALSO, for all we know, she could be a fantastic actress for all we know. And it’s not the first time a reality star turned into an actor:

    Nene Leakes
    Jennifer Hudson
    Katherine McPhee
    Yaya DeCosta
    David Giuntoli
    Josh Henderson

    All of them were reality stars FIRST before they became actors…and Jennifer Hudson even won an Oscar!! (though I think she still can’t act out of a paper bag)

    I loved Kyle Brandt! He was the best Phillip imo. Hated JKJ.
