EXCLUSIVE! E!'s Fashion Police Writers Carry On With The Funny While Striking! Watch HERE!

You can’t stop the jokes from coming!

E!'s Fashion Police writers might be in the middle of a heated battle for fair wages and Writers Guild of America recognition, but that isn’t stopping them from cracking the eff up!

And cracking US the eff up, we might add.

The writers might be buried up to their elbows in legal dramz, but they’ve also been quite busy making a HIGHlarious little video about what they’re “really” doing with all this extra time!

We’re rolling on the floor laughing over some of these insane one-liners they came up with upon the NEW claims people are being asked to write Joan Rivers' jokes anonymously and get paid under the table!

Seriously, E! is missing out with these jokesters.

It might be time to give them what they want. They’re CLEARLY worth it!

Ch-ch-check it out (above)!

Was Jersey Shore Idea Stolen?!?!?

Filed under: Icky Icky PooTV NewsMTVLegal MattersReality TV

writer says jersey shore idea was stolen from him by mtv

Let's hope this isn't true, MTV! This would NOT be cool!

Writer/producer Christopher Gambale is claiming that MTV stole his idea for Jersey Shore, and he may file a lawsuit against the network.

Gambale says he had submitted a treatment to MTV called Guido: A Reality Series, which he registered with the Writer's Guild of America in 2006.

His treatment included some key Jersey Shore words, such as "guido," "guidette," "nightclubbing," and "Guido fist pump."

The subject from the treatment was described as gym-toned and tanned. BUT did he have heavily-gelled hair?!?!?

Looks like Gambale's attorney sent MTV execs a letter, and they plan on filing a lawsuit one month from Nov 10 if they don't hear a response from the network by then.

One thing Gambale doesn't claim credit for is Snooki.

Here's what he had to say about her:

"Nobody can create that."

We're glad to hear you're not taking credit for Snook, Christopher!

As for the origin of the show's concept, we'll be curious to hear how MTV responds to your complaint.

Do U think MTV stole Gambale's idea?
