Phillips Norelco inks 'Jersey Shore' endorsement
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the grooming company has signed an endorsement deal with “Shore” star Vinny Guadagnino. The brand and its celebrity representative have partnered on a mission to help guys “get their style in check before heading back to school,” the company’s news release said.
“Today, style is all about customization and confidence,” Mr. Guadagnino added. “GTL — or gym, tan, laundry — can only get you so far. DIY — do-it-yourself — is the real key to personalized style.”
The news comes amid drama between Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and clothing brand Abercrombie & Fitch, which offered to pay the reality star not to wear its clothes, saying in a news release that the reality star’s “association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image.”
Both Mr. Sorrentino and MTV issued responses. “Looks like Abercrombie got themself into a Situation!” tweeted the star, who also shared a link to a story announcing Abercrombie’s 9 percent stock drop Wednesday.
“Jersey Shore‘s” fourth season, set in Italy, has been maintaining high viewership after debuting to record ratings.
Burt Reynolds facing foreclosure on Fla. home
A bank is seeking to foreclose on Burt Reynolds‘ Florida home so it can collect about $1.2 million for a mortgage, the Associated Press reports.
Merrill Lynch Credit Corp. has filed a lawsuit in Martin County against Mr. Reynolds, BankAtlantic and Great Eastern Mortgage, claiming the Emmy-winning actor has not made a mortgage payment since Sept. 1 on the 12,500-square-foot house.
Merrill Lynch is asking a judge to order the home sold to satisfy debts. The county property appraiser valued the Mediterranean-style home at $2.4 million.
The Stuart News reported Mr. Reynolds, 75, tried to sell the home in 2009 for $8.9 million, but he said then that the economy was making it difficult to sell.
Mr. Reynolds said in a statement through his publicist Wednesday that he was surprised by the lawsuit.
