Pauly D

I MADE $11 MILLION

In the Past 12 Months

breaking news

0803_pauly_d_tmzYou probably think Pauly D is just a stupid guy on a stupid reality show with a stupid haircut ... but over the last 12 months, he's made $11 million. Who's the stupid one now?

Pauly ranked 7th on a list of the highest-paid DJs put out by Forbes magazine. He's just $500k behind his adversary DeadMau5. The top guy on the list, Tiësto, made a whopping $22 million. 

Pauly also has his own clothing line, a spin-off reality show, his own tanning lotion, his own line of cocktails, and a set of headphones with 50 Cent.

Gym, tan, genius.

Everyone who has a minimum paying job.. then comes home to watch these 'reality' shows puts money in the pockets of these people.
The Jersey Shore, The Kardashians...etc.. You all work hard jobs with no money and make them all rich so they can all sleep late, party late and play all day.

It's SO annoying how TMZ writes their headlines as if they are quoting the person. . . . . As far as a reality TV person making that kind of money simply because dumba - ss viewers watch ridiculous reality shows, making the people 'stars' (Kardashians ring a bell?), it's just more of the 'dumbing down' of America that the viewers have to take responsibility for. If people didn't support these ridiculous shows then the networks would be forced to give us better. TV 'could' be used for really good entertainment and education, not BS like reality TV.

Proof that there is no shortage of stupid people in American willing to prop up a total douche. They did it with Charlie Sheen, why not this a-hole?

actually, he is aninvestor. He hired people to create these items and they let him put his name on them for marketing. Can you see him in a lab creating suntan lotion? I don't think so.

Doing something that you really love is supposed payoff in the end versus just going thru the motions pay check to pay check.

There is something very wrong in the universe ... when someone like this - can make anything above minimum wage.
