The Pauly D Project

I admire Pauly’s hustle. Plus he is the only Jersey Shore cast member with a talent. I know DJ’ing isn’t a traditional talent but it makes him thousands of dollars a night. We all laugh at the cast members and their antics but Pauly and his blowout are fist pumping straight to the bank.
