'Jersey Shore' star Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio lands Vegas deejay job
By Christopher Rocchio, 02/11/2010
Paul "Pauly D" Delvecchio is heading to Sin City to pursue his passion.
TheJersey Shore star has signed on to be the resident deejay this spring at the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas, RadarOnline reported Wednesday.
Delvecchio's agent Michael Schweiger had teased theJersey Shore star's Vegas deal late last week.
"We're just finalizing today his residency for the club he is going to in Las Vegas, which is probably going to surprise a lot of people, it's a major, major venue," Schweiger told RadarOnline in a Friday report.
"That will be the lead- in for him to do some of the super cool clubs for the summer."
Schweiger -- who represents all of the Jersey Shore cast members except Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi -- said he has been receiving "200 to 300 offers a day for various cast members" and the deluge has included one particularly odd one for Delvecchio.
"Someone in California offered us $50,000 to have Pauly D walk them down the aisle at their wedding, to give them away," Schweiger told RadarOnline.
"We rejected the offer, because Pauly is a serious deejay and all the other cast members are doing lots of personal appearances but Pauly D is not necessarily doing the personal appearances because he feels he has a lot to learn as a deejay. He does not want to be doing stuff that is unrelated to deejay-ing."
Delvecchio's new gig at the Palms is apparently only a stepping stone to other deejay jobs.
"He's is working with DJ Skribble right now who is helping him adjust to the DJ life, to the celebrity deejay life, and also helping him develop his deejay skills," Schweiger told RadarOnline.
"He is going to be playing some very cool deejay rooms in the summer where all the deejay's in the country will be watching him to see if he is a real serious DJ and he wants to be prepared and has to start and be humble."
MTV recently confirmed that Jersey Shore's first-season cast will return for the reality show's second season, which won't be set in Seaside Heights, NJ and will instead follow the cast in an undisclosed "new destination" that is likely to be Miami Beach, according to multiple recent reports.
