Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in the general vicinity of the location where a popular reality show was being filmed? And on that note, has the idea of having to contend with loud partying and cameras on every corner made you a bit fearful of welcoming reality TV stars with open arms?
If so, you're in luck -- because Jersey Shore's very own Snooki has inspired a new law to be drafted that aims to protect towns from the perils of living underneath a reality TV shadow. Yep -- "Snookiville Law" will "give local officials more power over reality shows filming in their area."
The law will supposedly help the town pay for additional police officers for security, and "this [bill] will help local officials make sure that the attention reality stars like Snooki and JWOWW bring to their town benefits local residents and businesses."
Wow. Who knew that Snooki could serve as such a source of inspiration to local New Jersey politicians? I guess this is one of those cases where it really pays to look for the good in everyone as opposed to judging them for past behaviors. (There's something positive in every situation, right?)
That being said, I highly doubt the new "Snookiville Law" will do much to change the minds of people who are highly opposed to living smack dab in the middle of a reality TV show. Plenty of families value their privacy more than anything else, regardless of how much extra revenue a network like MTV brings in. You really can't put a price on simple peace and quiet.
Would you be upset if a reality show landed in your neighborhood?
