Pauly D spins off The Shore!

DJ Pauly D is ditching his Jersey Shore playmates and going it alone with a 2011 MTV spin-off!

Pauly D spins off The Shore!

The news of a Pauly D spin-off isn't that hard to fathom. The MTV personality and Jersey Shore breakout star has it going on in more areas than just the shore.

Jersey Shore cast member spin-offs have long been fueling the gossip fires as everyone from Snooki to The Situation were up for their own solo projects. So, why Pauly D? He's actually a pretty big hit beyond his reality star notoriety -- he's been a guest DJ in some of the biggest clubs in America and even dropped his own single. He's got the goods to back up the talk and MTV is confident he will be able to carry a show beyond the Jersey Shore.

Executive Vice President of Programming and Head of Production for MTV, Chris Linn, told Us Magazine, "At the heart of Jersey Shore is the unique and genuine cast and Pauly D truly embodies both qualities."

Linn added, "He's distinguished himself onscreen as the fun-loving, well-coiffed and dependable guy you can't help but want to hang out with. We know viewers are curious about his life away from the shore and we look forward to exploring new possibilities around that."

You have to crawl before you walk, which means Pauly D will first be back on the small screen with the Jersey Shore cast mates that got him to where he is, for the long-awaited MTV premiere of season three on January 3.

After that, we have a feeling the newest Pauly D project will take 2011 by fist-pumping storm.
