Jersey Shore vs PCB

What do Jersey Shore and Panama City Beach have in common?

Well, both of us made national news in the celebrity blogs today.  TMZ.com and their band of CIA-like minions, were able to dig up this bit of news from Sunday night at Club La Vela.

This past weekend, “celebrity guest”  Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino and former castmate Angelina Pivarnick were in town to host a party at Club La Vela.

Both “The Situation” and Angelina have risen to reality-pseudo stardom from MTV’s controversial Jersey Shore show.

According to TMZ, numerous patrons began complaining to La Vela’s staff regarding Angelina’s drunken behavior. The Club finally escorted her from the property for being “rude to patrons and staff”

Here’s an excert from TMZ’s report: “A rep from the club tells us Angelina was escorted from the property for being “rude to patrons and staff” … but sources inside the establishment claim the final straw was when the former reality star “drunkenly tried to fight another girl in the V.I.P. area. Angie left without further incident — but she isn’t permanently banned from the joint … in fact, she’s still scheduled to make a few more appearances in the near future.”

After publishing this original story, TMZ.com followed with this update “Angelina claims she was never in a fight — but tells us she’s pissed at club security for putting her in a headlock when she got involved in a situation involving one of her friends.  Angelina says she’s considering taking legal action against the club.”

Personally, Club La Vela’s job is to keep the club’s environment safe and pleasant for both, patrons and staff. If you factor in the size of the club, and the volume of people their used to handling, it seems like it would take a lot for them to actually escort someone off the premise. Especially someone La Vela brought in and promoted as their “Celebrity Guest.”

Considering Angelina’s drunken antics have consistently made the news, and almost always involve her starting (or being) in fights or horrific treatment of anyone in earshot, it appears as those Club Le Vela was doing what was in the best interest of their club-goers and staff.

Welcome to the South, Jersey.

it takes surprisingly little upset to be removed from le vela. they often react before actually analyzing the situation at hand. sometimes this does keep people safe. sometimes it makes the locals not want to patron the bar.

I have been to both beaches many times. The only reason anyone would go to ACY was the casinos in years past. Now we have better casinos in the South so no one goes to ACY except the locals. It was a dieing town before the casinos and is probably destined to resume that spiral of decay now. The used syringes floating in the surf were a nice added touch.
PS: The boardwalk is very interesting but it stinks in the warm months.

Is that the best Club La Vela can do for “celebrity”? Celebrity about what? Why not choose a local chick who likes to get her drunk on and cat fight. Give someone else with no talent their five minutes of fame. Pleeeease. PCB doesn’t need this kind of publicity.

I HAVE SEEN MANY, MANY SPRING BREAKS HERE & ONE LITTLE NEW JERSEY GIRL IS NOT THE PROBLEM…YOU SHOULD LOOK ON THE BEACH BEHIND CLUB LA VELA, & IN THE PARKING LOT, & ON THE SURROUNDING STREETS…YOU WOULD THINK P.C.B. IS THE “RAP” CAPITAL OF THE WORLD.
I HAVE NEVER SEEN SO MANY DUMB A@$ PEOPLE TRYING TO WALK & KEEP THEIR PANTS UP WITH ONE HAND & HOLD ON TO A BEER WITH THE OTHER & AT THE SAME TIME KEEP THE WIND FROM BLOWING THEIR HAT OFF THAT IS PROPPED UP ON THEIR HEAD SIDEWAYS OR BACKWARDS.
A LOT OF THESE SO CALLED SPRING BREAK STUDENTS ARE NOT STUDENTS, THEY ARE THUGS JUST LIKE THE 30 YEAR OLD BURGER KING THUG.
WAKE UP CITIZENS OF PCB… TDC , & CLUB LE VELA… YOU GET WHAT YOU ADVERTISE FOR…IF YOU ADVERTISE FOR TRASH & THUGS & YOU GET TRASH & THUGS !!

IS THIS REALLY THE REPUTATION WE WANT PANAMA CITY BEACH TO HAVE.

I THINK NOT !!

The headline should be

“Jersey trash VS PCB Rednecks.
What does a Jersey Tramp and the Redneck Riveria have in common? Both have a lot of class, but its all LOW.
