mtv to celebrate “jerzdays” all summer long with back-to-back premiere event for jersey shore family vacation and new series buckhead shore on thursday, june 23 at 8pm et/pt

Buckhead Shore is the latest series to join the iconic “Shore” franchise and follows a group of friends in Atlanta’s “Beverly Hills of the South”


NEW YORK, NY – (May 26, 2022) – MTV today announced that “Jerzdays” will return for the summer with Jersey Shore Family Vacation and the highly anticipated new series Buckhead Shore premiering back-to-back on Thursday, June 23rd. The original “Shore” icons – Jersey Shore Family Vacation – will kick off the epic premiere event at 8PM ET/PT followed by the rowdy gang of Buckhead Shore at 9PM ET/PT on MTV.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation – Jersey Shore Family Vacation, which was #1 in its time period, returns for the second half of its monumental season five. The world is finally open again and the squad is free to roam — from El Paso for an old-fashioned roommates-only trip to watch DJ Pauly D spin, to San Diego for a full-on family vacation. But buckle up, because where this group goes, drama follows. Angelina’s marriage inches past the point of no return, and it’s time to settle some old scores that will have the whole family at odds.

Buckhead Shore – The Shore franchise heads to Buckhead, Georgia to follow a group of longtime friends and former flames making a name for themselves in Atlanta’s “Beverly Hills of the South.” JuJu Barney, Katie Canham, Savannah Gabriel, Adamo Giraldo, Parker Lipman, Bethania Locke, Pat Muresan, Chelsea Prescott and DJ Simmons head to the lake for their annual summer getaway. It’s time for wild fun, high drama hook-ups, and maybe even a few broken hearts.

Buckhead Shore is the latest series to join the massive “Shore” franchise slate, which includes Jersey Shore Family Vacation, All Star Shore, Floribama Shore, Geordie Shore (UK), Rio Shore (Brazil), Gandia Shore (Spain), Warsaw Shore (Poland), Acapulco Shore (Mexico) and Super Shore – along with seven new iterations in territories around the globe, including Argentina Shore, Colombia Shore and Australia Shore, with cities to be announced.

Follow along with @JerseyShore on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube, and @BuckheadShore on Instagram and TikTok. Join in on the conversation with #JSFamilyVacation and #BuckheadShore.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation and Buckhead Shore are produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 495 Productions.

Meet the cast of “Buckhead Shore”:
JUJU BARNEY – Instagram: @jujusworld1
“King of clubs” Juju hails from Atlanta royalty as the son of the owner of world-famous strip club Magic City. Charming and suave, Juju is known in the group for his outlandish quips and easy-going personality. But when Juju gets some shocking news about the family business, will he be able to transition from party mode back to boss mode?

KATIE CANHAM – Instagram: @ktcanham / Twitter: @Ktcanham
Katie may look like she has the perfect life from the outside, but the friend group’s “queen bae” has had her share of challenges: she’s lost her mother, is struggling to figure out her career path, and is spending her first single summer under the same roof as her ex-boyfriend, Parker. Coming to the lake house she is looking for a fresh start…even if that means living with Parker’s new flame.

SAVANNAH GABRIEL – Instagram: @saavannnah
Despite only having lived in Buckhead for a few years now, Savannah is nevertheless “making waves” in the friend group for her sweet yet spicy personality. Currently the woman rocking Parker’s chicken chain, she must not only manage their relatively new relationship but also how to handle being around Parker’s ex, Katie.

ADAMO GIRALDO – Instagram: @Adamogiraldo / Twitter: @adamogiraldo
“Fun and feisty” Adamo is the life of the party who never fails to have a good time. But despite wanting some escapist fun at the lake house, Adamo must navigate not only a new relationship but also the desire to reveal his true self to his mother.

PARKER LIPMAN – Instagram: @ParkerLipman
Parker considers himself the “head buck” of the group. A self-proclaimed mama’s boy whose family owns the Zaxby’s chicken fast-food chain, he hosts a yearly summer getaway for his friends at his family’s lake house in upstate Georgia. Parker can’t seem to stay out of trouble this summer, especially as he tries to navigate having both his girlfriend and ex living under one roof.

BETHANIA LOCKE – Instagram: @BethaniaLocke
The “heart of the lake” amongst the friend circle, Bethania is often viewed as the voice of reason and mediator when the waters start getting choppy. Raised in a strict Ethiopian/Jamaican household, she only recently lost her virginity and is eager to fully venture into the world of dating. But emotions run high when her longtime friend — and recent hook-up – joins the group at the lake house.

PAT MURESAN – Instagram: @patmuresan / Twitter: @patmuresan
Pat is one of Parker’s closest and most trusted allies. Whenever Parker finds himself in a predicament (which is quite often) he can always count on Pat to have his back and be one of his ‘bodyguards’ to protect him from trouble – just as long as Pat isn’t the one causing it!

CHELSEA PRESCOTT – Instagram: @Chelseaaprescott
When the friend group thinks of Chelsea two words immediately come to mind — “charm and chaos.” Hoping to live her best life at the lake house where she can fully embrace her bubbly and magnetic personality, she finds herself in numerous precarious situations and quickly realizes this getaway might be no vacation.

DJ SIMMONS – Instagram: @djsimmons__ / Twitter: @daryljordan23
DJ is considered by many to be “music royalty,” growing up as the son of Grammy-award winning music producer/song-writer Daryl Simmons. With big shoes to fill, he hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps but is distracted by the temptations of parties, friends, and lake life.

mtv movie & tv awards: unscripted to crown mogul, philanthropist, best-selling author and celebrated tv star bethenny frankel with the “reality royalty award”

New York, NY (June 1, 2022) – MTV will crown mogul, philanthropist, best-selling author and celebrated TV star Bethenny Frankel with the “Reality Royalty Award” at MTV Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED hosted by Tayshia Adams. The highly anticipated MTV Movie & TV Awards and Movie & TV Awards: UNSCRIPTED airs as an epic, one-night global event honoring the brightest stars in movies and television LIVE from Barker Hangar on Sunday, June 5 at 8PM ET/PM.

The Reality Royalty Award recognizes the legacy of reality greatness. Last year’s inaugural award was bestowed upon the cast of Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Bethenny Frankel is a self-made businessperson, TV producer, multiple New York Times bestselling author, philanthropist and mother. Bethenny recently announced her first business-focused book, BUSINESS IS PERSONAL: The Truth About What it Takes to Be Successful While Staying True to Yourself. Made up of anecdotes, personal stories, and advice on how to succeed as an entrepreneur, Bethenny shares lessons she learned from Hilary Clinton and Mark Cuban, while providing an in-depth look into her own business deals with Skinnygirl Cocktails and HSN. The book was released in May 2022, and covers topics such as real estate, retail, reality TV, philanthropy, fashion, and love, to name a few.

Bethenny’s most recent philanthropic efforts include her work in Ukraine. BSTRONG, Frankel’s worldwide disaster initiative, has raised more than 25 million dollars in aid and 12 million dollars in donations. In addition to helping Ukrainian refugees with travel logistics, BSTRONG has also provided individuals with crisis kits, including items such as blankets, sleeping bags, toiletries, non-perishables, water, and generators.

Bethenny recently headlined the HBO Max business competition series, The Big Shot with Bethenny, from MGM Television, Mark Burnett and her own B Real Productions. In the eight-episode series, the next generation of business moguls compete for a chance to win a spot on her Skinnygirl executive team. She is the Founder & CEO of Skinnygirl, a lifestyle brand offering practical solutions to women, including the launch of the Skinnygirl Jeanswear Collection, which sold out on HSN within its first few hours. Additionally, Bethenny launched Bethenny Brand, her very own eyewear line and also launched a new line of wine called Forever Young. Bethenny teamed up with iHeart Radio to create Just B, a podcast devoted to being a self-made mogul in business, lifestyle and beyond. Just B with Bethenny Frankel launched in September 2020, instantly topping the charts becoming ranked #4 on the Apple Podcast episodes chart and the #1 podcast in the society and culture category within the first week. Just B with Bethenny Frankel is available on Apple, Spotify and other listening platforms.

Bethenny was previously a guest shark on ABC’s critically acclaimed series “Shark Tank,” and became an instant fan favorite, showcasing her entrepreneurial prowess and gut instincts alongside the panel of investors. Bethenny has also been named one of the Top 100 Most Powerful Celebrities by Forbes. She is always ahead of the curve, with an expertise in identifying and capitalizing on business opportunities.

Additionally, in establishing the worldwide initiative, “B Strong: Disaster Relief” In partnership with Global Empowerment Mission, Frankel provides people with much needed gift cards, bank cards and critical supplies so they are able to deliver aid in real time. In addition to her work with Ukraine, her team has collected aid and donations from across the country to help individuals and their families affected by natural disasters impacting Texas, Florida, Mexico, Northern California, Dominica, Guatemala, North Carolina, The U.S. Virgin Islands and the Florida Panhandle. As a result of Bethenny’s efforts, B Strong had marshaled over 10 million pounds of aid that was destined primarily for Puerto Rico. Bethenny coordinated the chartering of 55+ private planes to help deliver aid and relief to those hit hardest by the disaster. Raising approximately $1.25 million in cash cards and collecting over $20 million worth of disaster relief to distribute, this has been called one of the largest privately-run humanitarian efforts in US history. B Strong has supported immediate aid programs in the Bahamas after Hurricane Dorian, as well as in Australia to help combat the devastating wildfires. To combat the COVID-19 pandemic, B Strong worked with various specific hospitals, medical facilities and government nationwide to provide masks for medical professionals on the frontlines. Additionally, they raised funds for ‘Corona Kits,’ which had the essentials for families to prevent coronavirus, including masks, gloves, antibacterial and sanitization wipes. Bethenny also worked to deliver aid to Texas residents affected by Winter Storm Uri. To date, over 10,000 individuals, companies and foundations have contributed to B Strong’s efforts.

As a runner up on “The Apprentice: Martha Stewart,” her success then led her to Bravo’s “The Real Housewives of New York City,” followed by the spin-off series, “Bethenny Getting Married?” and “Bethenny Ever After…” Viewers were captivated by her wit, wisdom and humor as they followed her personal life becoming a mother and her professional journey creating the Skinnygirl empire. She eventually brought her distinct voice and candid point of view to “Bethenny,” where she hosted her nationally syndicated daytime talk show program. Bethenny started her own TV production company, B Real-ity, producing two seasons of FYI’s “Food Porn,” and was the creator, producer and star of Bravo’s hit real estate show “Bethenny and Fredrik.”

From becoming a natural food chef and marketing Bethenny Bakes, her healthy baked goods service, to selling “Princess Pashminas” at house parties and creating the low-calorie cocktail category with the launch of Skinnygirl Cocktails, Bethenny has always identified and capitalized on business opportunities. A true entrepreneur, to further build Skinnygirl Cocktails, Bethenny partnered with Beam Suntory in 2011 to grow her portfolio to include wines, flavored vodkas, and ready-to-drink cocktails. Since the launch of Skinnygirl Cocktails, she has expanded the Skinnygirl brand into a global lifestyle empire, featuring products for women that offer practical and stylish solutions to everyday problems. With the launch of the Skinnygirl Jeanswear collection in September 2018, Skinnygirl has become more than a brand, but also an attitude that helps empower women to lead healthy lives and feel strong, honest and fearless. Some of the many other Skinnygirl products include microwave popcorn, salad dressings, coffee, shapewear, preserves, supplements, cookware, bakeware and syrups.

She is the five-time New York Times bestselling author of: “Skinnydipping,” “A Place of Yes: 10 Rules for Getting Everything You Want Out Of Life”, “Naturally Thin: Unleash Your Skinnygirl,” “Free Yourself from a Lifetime of Dieting, The Skinnygirl™ Dish: Easy Recipes for Your Naturally Thin Life”, and “I Suck At Relationships So You Don’t Have To”.

Buckhead Shore is the latest series to join the iconic “Shore” franchise and follows a group of friends in Atlanta’s “Beverly Hills of the South”

NEW YORK, NY – (May 26, 2022) – MTV today announced that “Jerzdays” will return for the summer with Jersey Shore Family Vacation and the highly anticipated new series Buckhead Shore premiering back-to-back on Thursday, June 23rd.

· Jersey Shore Family Vacation – Jersey Shore Family Vacation, which was #1 in its time period, returns for the second half of its monumental season five. The world is finally open again and the squad is free to roam — from El Paso for an old-fashioned roommates-only trip to watch DJ Pauly D spin, to San Diego for a full-on family vacation. But buckle up, because where this group goes, drama follows. Angelina’s marriage inches past the point of no return, and it’s time to settle some old scores that will have the whole family at odds.

· Buckhead Shore – The Shore franchise heads to Buckhead, Georgia to follow a group of longtime friends and former flames making a name for themselves in Atlanta’s “Beverly Hills of the South.” JuJu Barney, Katie Canham, Savannah Gabriel, Adamo Giraldo, Parker Lipman, Bethania Locke, Pat Muresan, Chelsea Prescott and DJ Simmons head to the lake for their annual summer getaway. It’s time for wild fun, high drama hook-ups, and maybe even a few broken hearts.

Buckhead Shore is the latest series to join the massive “Shore” franchise slate, which includes Jersey Shore Family Vacation, All Star Shore, Floribama Shore, Geordie Shore (UK), Rio Shore (Brazil), Gandia Shore (Spain), Warsaw Shore (Poland), Acapulco Shore (Mexico) and Super Shore – along with seven new iterations in territories around the globe, including Argentina Shore, Colombia Shore and Australia Shore, with cities to be announced.

Follow along with @JerseyShore on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, TikTok and YouTube, and @BuckheadShore on Instagram and TikTok. Join in on the conversation with #JSFamilyVacation and #BuckheadShore.

Jersey Shore Family Vacation and Buckhead Shore are produced by MTV Entertainment Studios and 495 Productions.

Meet the cast of “Buckhead Shore”:

JUJU BARNEY – Instagram: @jujusworld1

“King of clubs” Juju hails from Atlanta royalty as the son of the owner of world-famous strip club Magic City. Charming and suave, Juju is known in the group for his outlandish quips and easy-going personality. But when Juju gets some shocking news about the family business, will he be able to transition from party mode back to boss mode?

KATIE CANHAM – Instagram: @ktcanham / Twitter: @Ktcanham

Katie may look like she has the perfect life from the outside, but the friend group’s “queen bae” has had her share of challenges: she’s lost her mother, is struggling to figure out her career path, and is spending her first single summer under the same roof as her ex-boyfriend, Parker. Coming to the lake house she is looking for a fresh start… even if that means living with Parker’s new flame.

SAVANNAH GABRIEL – Instagram: @saavannnah

Despite only having lived in Buckhead for a few years now, Savannah is nevertheless “making waves” in the friend group for her sweet yet spicy personality. Currently the woman rocking Parker’s chicken chain, she must not only manage their relatively new relationship but also how to handle being around Parker’s ex, Katie.

ADAMO GIRALDO – Instagram: @Adamogiraldo / Twitter: @adamogiraldo

“Fun and feisty” Adamo is the life of the party who never fails to have a good time. But despite wanting some escapist fun at the lake house, Adamo must navigate not only a new relationship but also the desire to reveal his true self to his mother.

PARKER LIPMAN – Instagram: @ParkerLipman

Parker considers himself the “head buck” of the group. A self-proclaimed mama’s boy whose family owns the Zaxby’s chicken fast-food chain, he hosts a yearly summer getaway for his friends at his family’s lake house in upstate Georgia. Parker can’t seem to stay out of trouble this summer, especially as he tries to navigate having both his girlfriend and ex living under one roof.

BETHANIA LOCKE – Instagram: @BethaniaLocke

The “heart of the lake” amongst the friend circle, Bethania is often viewed as the voice of reason and mediator when the waters start getting choppy. Raised in a strict Ethiopian/Jamaican household, she only recently lost her virginity and is eager to fully venture into the world of dating. But emotions run high when her longtime friend – and recent hook-up – joins the group at the lake house.

PAT MURESAN – Instagram: @patmuresan / Twitter: @patmuresan

Pat is one of Parker’s closest and most trusted allies. Whenever Parker finds himself in a predicament (which is quite often) he can always count on Pat to have his back and be one of his ‘bodyguards’ to protect him from trouble – just as long as Pat isn’t the one causing it!

CHELSEA PRESCOTT – Instagram: @Chelseaaprescott

When the friend group thinks of Chelsea two words immediately come to mind — “charm and chaos.” Hoping to live her best life at the lake house where she can fully embrace her bubbly and magnetic personality, she finds herself in numerous precarious situations and quickly realizes this getaway might be no vacation.

DJ SIMMONS – Instagram: @djsimmons__ / Twitter: @daryljordan23

DJ is considered by many to be “music royalty,” growing up as the son of Grammy-award winning music producer/song-writer Daryl Simmons. With big shoes to fill, he hopes to follow in his father’s footsteps but is distracted by the temptations of parties, friends, and lake life.
