Gym, tan, laundry: Cast of ‘Jersey Shore’ toasts to 10 years since MTV debut

Posted: Updated:

It's been 10 years since "Jersey Shore" made its debut on MTV, when the world met Pauly D, Vinny, JWoww, Ronnie, Snooki and The Situation.

It’s also when the world learned that GTL means -- gym, tan, laundry.

The cast recently poured champagne and shared some memories at Angelina Pivarnick's wedding rehearsal.

"So when I knew ‘Jersey Shore’ was a hit was -- I never was on television before -- so when the first episode started to come out, people started to recognize us in the streets,” says Paul "DJ Pauly D" Delvecchio. “I remember pumping gas like I would normally do like every single week or whatever and all of a sudden people are rushing me at the gas station. I'm like, 'Oh my God, people know who I am' and I'm from Rhode Island, a small state in the U.S. I'm like, 'I think we may have a hit on our hands.' It started getting bigger and bigger after that and then the rest, I would say, is history."

Much of the original cast is now married and raising children.
