Snooki, JWoww, DJ Pauly DIt was inevitable that the 'Jersey Shore' starts would end up with their own MTV shows, right?

Not only is their highly rated reality series constantly playing on the network, the Macaroni Rascals also show up in various commercials (cashews, Miracle Whip, Xenadrine) and pop culture events (the roast of Donald Trump, Wrestlemania). Now, three of the party-loving reality stars will have shows of their own.

MTV announced today that it has ordered full, 12-episode seasons of two different 'Jersey Shore' spin-offs, one from DJ Pauly D and one from Snooki (aka Nicole Polizzi) and J-Woww (aka Jenni Farley).

"The 'Jersey Shore' cast is at the center of the show's ongoing success, and Nicole, Pauly D and Jenni have become household names as a result of their unique, sometimes outrageous and often hilarious personalities," said MTV exec Chris Linn in a statement. "We're excited to put the spotlight on their lives away from the shore as they pursue their individual passions, careers and relationships. Both series are fun, fresh ways for us to evolve what is an already successful brand for us."
