Pauly D

by ethnic on March 15, 2010

Birth Name: Paul DelVecchio

Place of Birth: Providence, Rhode Island, U.S.

Date of Birth: July 5, 1980

Ethnicity: Italian

Pauly D, also known as DJ Pauly D, is an American television personality and disc jockey. He was born Paul DelVecchio, and is the son of Donna (DiCarlo) and Paul D. DelVecchio. Pauly has a daughter with Amanda Markert.

Pauly was, and is, well known for starring on the reality show Jersey Shore. He is known for his elaborate hairstyles and his fist-pumping.

Pauly has said (starting around 1:42 at this link):

I’m 100% Italian… My family’s straight from Italy… I take pride in being Italian. I love being Italian. I love the food… I definitely don’t represent all Italians, I only represent myself.

A picture of Pauly’s father can be seen here. A picture of Pauly’s paternal grandmother can be seen here. A picture of Pauly’s mother can be seen here.

Pauly’s maternal grandparents were Albert J. DiCarlo, Sr. and Anna Box (the daughter of Salvatore Box and Teresa/Theresa Montaquila). Albert was Italian, and is listed as possibly having been born in San Marino in one record. Anna was born in Rhode Island, to Italian parents. Teresa was born in Caserta, the daughter of Carmino Montaquila and Carmela Lepre.

Various websites have speculated that Pauly is of Portuguese and/or Brazilian ancestry. This is not accurate.

I think you could include a picture of his father:

http://mtv-tv.mtvnimages.com/Music-Entertainment/Shows/Pauly-D-Project/Flipbooks/102/dad.jpg

This is possibly his (paternal) grandmother:

https://twitter.com/DJPaulyD/status/306884854807687169

And adding something like:

“his mother is said to have Portuguese and/or Brazilian ancestry. It’s not clear if this is accurate”.

follers June 9, 2016 at 5:18 pm

Why would it say, “it’s not clear”. He’s said he’s of “100% Italian” descent and there’s no evidence to contradict his statement, whether documentary (records) or “journalistic” (some kind of news article).

Also, people born in Rhode Island around the 1950s don’t tend to have Brazilian ancestry (Portuguese, maybe).

andrew June 9, 2016 at 6:00 pm

I think it’s kinda funny that you really think to that statement, btw I give credit to him when he says “I definitely don’t represent all Italians, I only represent myself”. Paulie’s mother appears to be mixed-race.

http://www.stewmilnephotos.com/?p=222

It would be more correct: Various websites have speculated that Pauly’s mother is of Portuguese and/or Brazilian ancestry. This is not accurate (or has not been verified/documented)

follers June 9, 2016 at 6:04 pm

I’ve traced his mother’s whole family back to Italy now. What else is there?

I guess only those Afro-Italians Fuzzybear talks about. That’s about it.

andrew June 9, 2016 at 6:15 pm

if that is his uncle he does not look to be related to Paulie’s mother.

andrew January 1, 2018 at 7:28 am

@follers

In Rhode Island there is a huge Portuguese community. This also include people with ancestry from former Portuguese colonies.

The man in this obituary is Pauly’s uncle.

This was Pauly’s maternal grandmother, Anna (Box) DiCarlo, the daughter of Italian parents, Salvatore Box and Theresa Montaquila.

andrew June 9, 2016 at 6:10 pm

how many women named Donna DiCarlo are there in Rhode Island? “Box” is an odd case of anglicization.

follers June 9, 2016 at 6:13 pm

I confirmed that that’s Pauly’s mother through Facebook. I wouldn’t have put it in the text without confirming that’s the right person first.

Lots of Italians named “Box”.

BTW, I just checked, and there’s only one “Donna DiCarlo” in Rhode Island. But I already confirmed that’s Pauly’s mother before that.

Pauly’s mother’s sister:

I tell you one thing: whatever genealogical researches you do there will be alwais people who won’t believe to them. Also not all the children are raised by biological fathers. Still a minority, but it happens. In little communities everyone knows, in big towns it’s easier to sweep it under the carpet.

follers June 9, 2016 at 6:32 pm

Yes, yes, we know, the house always wins, etc.

andrew June 9, 2016 at 6:37 pm

Btw if a Wasp couple like the Romneys can produce an Hispanic-looking dude (actually rumoured to be adopted) everything is possible.

follers June 9, 2016 at 8:11 pm

Yes, yes, they’re all adopted, we all already know.

follers June 9, 2016 at 5:57 pm

I think Pauly’s grandfather, Albert J. DiCarlo, was born in San Marino.

Why are Italians in here pissed that this guy is one of them?

Non Sequitur September 7, 2015 at 12:05 pm

Wikipedia says his mom is of “Brazilian origin”. Can you add “possibly other” under his ethnicity? There is no evidence he is solely Italian.

follers September 7, 2015 at 3:41 pm

No. It’s bad enough someone keeps adding that uncited, tagged statement to Wikipedia. And are you serious about that Moran Atias question? Moroccans who converted to Judaism? Where do people get this stuff?

follers September 7, 2015 at 5:58 pm
Non Sequitur September 7, 2015 at 9:07 pm

Either way, saying something =/ true. I could say I’m 100% Italian, doesn’t make it true. People have historically lied about their ethnic and racial background. His mother has an Italian surname, but there is a lot of Italian ancestry in Brazil and a lot of people who aren’t fully European in terms of their ancestry have these surnames, just like they have Portuguese surnames. The rumor of his mother being of a Brazilian origin has persisted for a long time.

follers September 7, 2015 at 9:09 pm

Yes, good point, Pauly D is mixed with lots of exotic non-Italian stuff.

Non Sequitur September 7, 2015 at 9:18 pm

I don’t really appreciate the irony. I was just pointing out there is no evidence this guy is fully Italian, there have been celebrities who’ve claimed to have Native American ancestry and yet their family-tree showed otherwise.

midori29 December 31, 2015 at 7:33 am

Mother looks like a Brazilian 1/4th African qaudroon mulatto type.

Why did you remove the Portuguese?

andrew June 24, 2014 at 6:45 am

Portuguese is a politically correct way to say brazilian

No, it isn’t. People from Brazil identify as Brazilian.

follers June 24, 2014 at 9:46 am

I didn’t remove anything. It always just said “Italian” on here.

Andrew, when did Pauly D say he has Portuguese ancestry?

andrew June 26, 2014 at 8:29 am

I read he said that but I dunno where

midori29 December 31, 2015 at 7:38 am

That mom looks part African. I am from South America, I think people forget, I know mixtures more than the average person. South America is a mixed race haven.lol. I know what I saying.

tinasheeeee June 24, 2014 at 4:35 pm

on some sites it does say he is black & Italian and they do say that his mom is Portuguese, maybe his mom in Afro-Brazilian & Portuguese. He obviously isn’t 100% Italian if his mom is Brazilian or Portuguese.

follers June 24, 2014 at 5:04 pm

But what’s the actual reliable evidence for his non-Italian ancestry?

And as for Ariana Grande, all of that is discussed on her page already, and most Sicilians would get similar DNA results, that are very vague.

follers June 24, 2014 at 5:16 pm

His mother’s maiden name is Donna DiCarlo, which is Italian.

Many Portuguese have African admixture.

The majority of Argentinians are Of Italians/Spanish I never said they weren’t But their is also many Of British and Irish and Russians that makes them look more Whiter than Italians, Read carefully What I write and Stop putting words in my mouth

andrew December 5, 2013 at 5:04 am

there are more mestizo/castizo than British, Irish and Russians in Argentina. You have no clue about what you are talking about. You don’t consider Rowan Atkinson white. Shut the fuck up

Buenos Aires, Cordoba and Rosario

justme December 16, 2013 at 10:31 am

ANDREW YOU COMMENT IS REALLY IGNORANT. I have been to Argentina and people are really white. By Europeans standard they are consider white. The italians that came to US were mixed. THe ones that went to Argentina were from the North Part that is why they were white.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4iLgdezFP1o

That is the type of Argentinas or Italians.

Will Smith in Argentina:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ti-D4WhrT3k

I have seen in Latin America white, asians , mestizos, blacks and many other people like the USA. I have been in New Yprk and only 30% of the people of New York are white(US Census). US is the melting pot. I have seen more white people in Uruguay and Argentina than in California, Texas, Florida or New York. In LONG ISLAND THOSE ITALIANS ARE BROWNIES.

andrew December 16, 2013 at 12:08 pm

@ justme

you’re completely clueless. Having a Mediterranean phenotype doesn’t mean to be mixed! you’re ignorant.
I can’t get what you mean, people like Martin Scorsese or Al Pacino, both 100% Sicilians, are “mixed” to you? wtf are you talking about?

About Argentina, many people (>50%) have Northern Italian surnames, but they’re not 100% European, they often have some indigenous blood, not much to look mestizo but enough to make them different from Italians. Messi is an example. A “dark” Mediterranean is more white than a fair guy with some Indigenous heritage as Messi

andrew December 4, 2013 at 5:13 am

are u stupid or what? there are about 5 millions of German-Brazilians, Italy has 60 millions of inhabitants, 56 are Italians and they just want to consider themselves Italian. There’s no such thing as “white” or “non white” in Italy and in all European countries except UK when you have to specify your race in the Census. 60% of Argentinians are of Italian descent

the punisher December 4, 2013 at 1:33 pm

Not all Argentinians are Italians of them some are British, and Irish ,Russians, Hungarians many Eastern European even though many people say Eastern Europeans aren’t White they sure look more white than Southern Europeans Check it out and you will see

andrew December 4, 2013 at 2:41 pm

Are you able to read? 60 % of Argentinians have Italian ancestry, not all. The rest are mainly of Spanish descent. And who says Eastern Europeans aren’t white?? You read too much bullshit

yeah, but sources are more controlled now that in the past. Editing Wikipedia is not as easy as writing stuff in this site, trust me

andrew December 4, 2013 at 3:11 pm

Eastern Europeans are “white” but they don’t look like the Western ones, expecially because of their skull shape and general features that are completely different, and I’m not talking about the hair/eye colour.

the punisher December 4, 2013 at 3:58 pm

You based your information on Wikipidia that’s not solid information, many of that information is made up, And I think you can’t read I said many people including you said eastern Europeans aren’t White but they are white more white than Southern Europeans anyways, like it or not that’s the truth

andrew December 4, 2013 at 5:23 pm

I didnt say Eastern Europeans aren’t white. They’re just different from Western Europeans. There’s more difference East/West than North/South in Europeans, but you can’t get this concept since you’re just obsessed with your bizarre idea of “white”.
And are you trying to say the majority of Argentinians are not of Italian or Spanish descent?
And do you wonder why everybody insult you here ?

LL December 2, 2013 at 5:22 pm

He looks Hispanic/South American to me, not italian

the punisher December 2, 2013 at 6:17 pm

There are more Whites in south America than their are in Italy travel and you will see

andrew December 3, 2013 at 5:17 am

actually most of whites in South America are of Italian and Spanish descent, in the past the local governors promote the Italian immigration to increase the number of white people in countries like Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Venezuela, Chile where non-caucasian people were the majority.
Kid, learn the facts.

Pauly D wouldn’t pass in Europe

the punisher December 3, 2013 at 11:43 am

There are a lot of Northerns too, In Argentina there are British, Irish, Russians, Ect.. in Brazil theirs German, polish, Scandanavians that’s makes double the whites in south America than in Italy

andrew December 3, 2013 at 3:01 pm

you’re simply an ignorant since the only sizeable “Nothern” community in South America are the Germans expecially is Rio Grande Do Sul, South Brazil. There aren’t so many people of British, Irish, Russians, polish, “Scandanavians” there.

justme December 16, 2013 at 10:39 am

That is because the mestizos are the one crossing the border. Not the white Mexicans. Besides buy yourself a map. Mexico is North America. Are maps really expensive in the US? FOR ME HE LOOKS FROM THE US. LATELY THIS IS TYPE OF PEOPLE YOU SEE IN THE USA.

justme December 16, 2013 at 10:47 am

They are German immigrants in Latin America. In all latin america and they usually marry other Europeans but also you have poor people who are of EUROPEAN descents. I have several years working here and unless you are born and raise here it is very complicated to explain. I an still learning.

This are the kind of italians that make me sick. bECAUSE OF THEM PEOPLE THINK WE ALL BROWNIES. PlEASE DO NOT CONFUSE THIS NON WHITE ITALIAN WITH A WHITE ITALIAN. My family from my dad side were white italians(blond, blue eye) AND WHITE SPANIARDS.

andrew December 16, 2013 at 12:18 pm

idiot blond hair/blue eyes don’t make you more white than a brown haired/eyed person! in all European families there’s variety, colours don’t mean much

I think he looks Italian. Some Italians are incredibly dark, for example Andrea Boccelli’s two sons who could easily pass for Lebanese.

giacomoppn April 13, 2012 at 4:18 am

yes, very few Italians have a skin Mediterranean (Iberian) as tom jones,sean connery, anastacia,colin farrel etc (Irish with iberian ancestry pre-Christian). But this boy is not even this minority. certainly he has lineages south-central american, I don’t say this for skin color, but especially for the facial features. He’s not Italian.
A large part (not all) of the Italian Americans who see you are coming from provinces with majority ethnic greek-Iberian. typical Italian is not dark, typical Italian santorum may be for example.

giacomoppn April 26, 2012 at 9:11 am

You should always look at the Europeans remained at home, not look at those in America who are grandchildren of fourth generation with mixed ethnicity. There are not Italians in Italy as this guy. Should investigate its real origins. The surname is definitely Italian but the face is South American. it is sad to see how ideas are confused. Italy, France and northern Spain are ethnically a single unit, composed of the same mix of peoples (ethnic groups) and still retain similar languages​​. Look at the national sports teams (any sport) as a solution. I cannot ask you to know about actors / actresses celebrities Italians, French etc, but check the national sports teams is an easy solution. Sorry at all again for my bad English:

There is not something like South American face beause they are diverse.Also South Américan countries are who more Italians have received in the entire world .So don’ t come her saying that he “looks southamerican” and not “italian”.Also what is the obsesion here with southamericans.All weird people look Southamerican but the most sure is that you don’ t know many Southamericans.Because most migrants of Latín América in Usa are not from South America.

Frankly, here in Italy we thought initially that this stupid show represented a group of South Americans. We realized after it was Italian (from the controversy left the Italian-American community in the USA) this subject is not like any Italian I’ve ever seen in Italy. It looks like a Puerto Rican not an Italian.
The average American persists in thinking that the Italians are like that. As if here in europe we thought that you americans are all obese with donut in hand, brown mustache, shoulder straps, spurs to the feet and the wooden house.

Because when Italians settled here most of them didnot know how to read or write English, it was most under Spanish and French rule.Because Spanish and Italian are so close in language alot of Italian First and last names were changed to Spanish.I know because I’m Italian and thats what happened to my family.

The last IQ March 2, 2012 at 10:01 am

He is probably Sicilian. Sicilians often self-identify as Italian. Sicily is to Italy what Mexico (or rather Puerto Rico) is to Spain. Sicily is to Italy what Brazil and the Cape Verde Islands are to Portugal. The Moors, and Afro-Arab group invaded Sicily and “raped” the women. Descendents are a mixture of the Moors and the Italian. Some more Moorish than others. As with most cultures that have had any sort of dark/african infiltration, lighter skinned people in the region try to stay light. Therefore those who had a lot of obvious Moorish ancestry were probably (and on this part I am speculating) more likely to marry/reproduce with others like them. Pauly is probably nearly half Moorish through multigenerational breeding. the other half; Italian. Does he look half Egyptian and half Italian? I think so. That’s a pretty close comparison to what a Sicilian looking like he does probably is.

He’s human. That’s what matters most anyway, although I do find ethnicity to be fascinating. Especially with regard to the diaspora of colored people. It’s very interesting.

Italian men love beautiful women… period. I think many of them do have the obssession for what is rare among their own kind; blonde and fair. There is an elitism associated with whiteness related to the history fo the world. That said, an equal or at least a VERY close second may be GORGEOUS exotic women (who may/may not be partially black). Operative word: GORGEOUS. I have seen many men fall head over heels for a very plain blonde white woman, revering her as the ultimate catch. A woman of a darker kind must almost always be exponentially more attractive than her white counterpart to garner the same regard.

That’s just the way it is.

giacomoppn April 12, 2012 at 9:55 am

What are you saying?
I am Italian, in Italy. The Sicilians are not half Italian half Arab (I’m not Sicilian). the sicily of Magna Greece before the Romans had a population of some thousands, especially in the southern belt (areas of Agrigento and Ragusa) the true population of the island took place between the Roman Empire and the Lombard-Norman domination. The Arabs arrived in 827 on the island were not those we see today. They were mostly Berbers, the result of the union of ancient Carthaginians and the Germanic tribes (Vandals, Suevi, Visigoths, Burgundians) who settled the first 400 years after leaving their kingdom in Spain: the vandalusia (modern Andalusia)and throughout their rule remained a rather small elite who then advanced to the Norman retired in the extreme west of Sicily.A typical Sicilian Mediterranean can be andy garcia for example, but rather typical Sicilian Norman or Lombard can be Eleonora abbagnato,Costanza caracciolo, Mario biondi etc
Today Sicily is (along with Sardinia) a region with a large ethnic diversity (ancient greek, romans, Normans, Lombards, Berbers, etc.). Investigate well, this guy has secure South American origins.

Sammy February 12, 2012 at 2:30 pm

What is with all these people on here saying that Italian is white? Believe me, white people DO NOT consider Italians, Portugese, Spanish or anyone of ANY spanish decent WHITE. You can try and be politically correct all you want, but in the real world, guys like Pauly would never be called “white”. That is just the way it is.

marjanel October 15, 2015 at 8:11 am

So most Americans are not white?

Italian Pride February 11, 2012 at 4:49 am

@Rafael, are you serious? You must be pretty stupid to think the only white Italians are the ones mixed with German or Irish. My family is Italian and we are as light as any other white person, or lighter. So get a clue and step out in the real world. A lot of Italians are just tan because they over tan themselves or just claim to be Italian when they are not, or are mixed with something else, for example, most of the cast on the Jersey Shore. Also, a lot of Puerto Ricans are mixed. I know alot who look of mixed race, and much darker than most Italians. Italians are from Europe, therefore they are white/caucasian. There is a VERY SMALL percent of Italians that are mixed from invasians, like most Europeans. Learn your history and get over it people!

FreakyD December 16, 2011 at 1:47 pm

My mom is Portuguese, my dad is Sicilian. I can tell you that my mom’s family is Irish looking for the most part. I spent 2 weeks in mainland Portugal and Spain a month back, they can look Italian but mostly look like Brits/French/Irish.

To Crystal S.–
Italians love their black women? Whatever. Go on thinking that nonesense.

sonic February 21, 2012 at 11:32 pm

its true my – my sister married a italian

most of them love black girls


because italians are like hispanics

Crystal S. November 7, 2011 at 2:57 pm

He is fine as fuck!!! An he 100% italian. Italians love their black women too!! That’s a plus!

ceq December 16, 2011 at 2:54 am

Go to Italy and see how they treat non-whites specifically African immigrants and Gypsies, and then say that again.

Greg November 7, 2011 at 2:27 pm

Paul D looks like a very tanned southern Italian/Sicilian to me. I’ve heard people say he may be half Puerto Rican, that is a possibility but I doubt it. Half Anglo American, no way. He’s too North African looking for that. Half Portuguese? No way. I’m Irish/German and can tell you that almost all the Portuguese I’ve seen from Boston do not look like Pauly D. Many can look mediterranean, but they’re more like English/Irish for the most part.

Sonny November 18, 2011 at 12:29 am

He doesn’t look North African, and Portuguese don’t look British. You’re blind.

Rossa Prendergast March 30, 2012 at 11:39 pm

They don’t? Well my mom is full Portuguese and my dad is Irish born and I’ve lived in Portugal and Spain for 6 years, I think i would know.

Rossa Prendergast March 30, 2012 at 11:29 pm

I would say he’s full Italian, 100%.

Enzo October 27, 2011 at 5:20 am

Im from Italy and i’ve never seen anybody dark as Pauly or Snooki, they are probably just tan too much but italians are not naturally that colour instead of Mexican, Indians or Moroccan that have naturally have that skin colour, srry for my bad english.

Salvatore Sardo October 24, 2011 at 11:56 pm

Firstly lets define what Ethnicity means.
An ethnic group (or ethnicity) is a group of people whose members identify with each other, through a common heritage, often consisting of a common language, a common culture (often including a shared religion) and/or an ideology that stresses common ancestry.
I am Italian from the Island of Sardegna, in Euroe I am Mediterranean White because we are from the Mediterranean. Our Heritage is mixed since many different countries step food in our Island, Germans, Spaniards, Arabs, Greeks, Phoenicians etc etc.
As a race we are mixed race, but as an Ethnic group (Ethnicity) we are Italians.

Paul D is American. His great grandpa may be Italian but that was generations a go, he thinks like a Jersey guy, dress like one, talks like one and has non common heritage or Ethnicity with us, Italians. He does not speak our language, understand our culture, participate of our culture and is not involved in nothing related to us, Italians.
You are Italian if you are born in Italy or if you are at some degree Ethnically affiliated to Italy. At list speak Italian for crying out loud!
In Argentina they are 45 million Italians, In Brazil they are 55 Million Italians. In north American they are only 17 million (mixed).
Most Italian-Argentine speak Italian, Most Brazilian-Italian speak Italian, most of them share a common culture, such as, the passion for Soccer, Cuisine, heritage, language and even the way they look since mostly they intermarriage between each-other. Obviously Italian language is Romance language same as French, Spanish and Portuguese. Not English which is Anglo-Germanic language.

So from that point of view anyone that is born in the USA and is raced up here is American and have Ethnicity in common, such as passion for football, baseball, basketball and with its own unique social and cultural characteristics such as dialect, music, arts, social habits, cuisine, and folklore. An American will understand another American because shares the same Ethnicity.

Paul D is an American in Italy he will be lost, with a language barrier, cultural barrier and always analyzing situations as an American, because he proudly is one.
How do we see Americans in Europe? as Americans, it does not matter that your ancestor came from England, Germany, Poland or Ireland, you are an American and have nothing in common with Europeans. Americans created their own Ethnicity and should be proud of it because is fucking great!..

So stop with this bullshit non sense if he is white or he is not because he is American and yes, if you look at him he looks Mediterranean, but is not what you look like what matters is what is inside your brains that matters. You want to be proud of your European heritage, than learn fuckin Italian, Gaelic, Spanish or whatever your heritage is and be part of the Ethinicity you are. I just will be happy to be an American and drop the bullshit of: oh you look like, no i look like, or you are to dark, o not you are pale, or whatever they feed you in the media this days, wanna learn about Ethnicity, than stop watching TV and pick up books about other countries!

Sonny October 24, 2011 at 6:00 pm

He’s Italian and therefore white. His natural skin is actually very light. Same goes for all the other Italians on Jersey Shore.

PAULY D IS NOT WHITE

THEY DONT WANNA BE WHITE

THEY WANNA BE TANNED THEY ARE BROWN

SNOOKI IS LATINA -SO SHE IS BROWN

RONNIE IS PUERTO RICAN -SO THAT MAKES HIM LATINO

M.L. September 29, 2011 at 8:55 pm

Most Sicilians and some southern Italians may be part Arab or North African, due to the medieval occupation of Sicily by Moors, but contrary to the movie “True Romance”, the Moors who occupied Sicily were not black Africans, they were swarthy North Africans (think Ghaddafy), not really that much different from southern europeans racially to begin with. Plus north Africa had been colonized by Phoenicians, Greeks, and Romans for centuries before the Moorish invasion, so many ‘the Moors’ were really the descendants of Greeks and other southern Europeans and similar Caucasian folk from the levant anyway.

M.L. September 29, 2011 at 8:46 pm

The bottom line is, Italians in general just hate people who don’t look like them. They generally hate both paler white people (like WASPs and especially the Irish or anyone who looks like them) AND blacks and ‘Hispanics’. But ‘hot’ WASPs or even Irish women or white/’whitish’ Hispanics and hot light skinned black girls may be accepted as girlfriends to screw, but to marry would usually be taboo.

Pat D September 23, 2011 at 9:01 pm

Pauly D is Italian you morons. Even though he embarrasses us. Who the hell cares what his mother is? If your father is Italian and you have an Italian last name, to me you’re full Italian.

Rick September 24, 2011 at 12:46 am

You’re right, its what the father is, full stop!
Except with the weirdo jews who think they can claim from the mothers side lmao? I met this Israeli chick who, like Paulys stalker, wanted to have my kids after I got it in a few times, and then claimed they will be Jewish. I was like bitch you must be crazy they have my blood, they take my surname, they are my ancestry and RELIGION for life, you can take your weak ass ideology to some Anglo who will gladly let his kids be called whatever the mother is, but not us europeans BITCH.

Pat D September 25, 2011 at 10:25 pm

Word. I’m sick of this you are what your mother is bullshit. People look more like their fathers too.

both September 26, 2011 at 10:46 am

It’s a combination of both sides. No one said that you have to choose one side over the other. Plus, I don’t know why you say that most people look like their fathers, that’s strange. Plenty of people also look like their mothers. You can look like anyone.

Pat D September 26, 2011 at 10:34 pm

I’m just going by what I see. Whenever I see a family I notice that the children always look more like the dad. It’s just the way it is. You can disagree but that’s my observation.

What September 25, 2011 at 9:00 pm

What do you mean? Both sides of the family matter, not just the father’s side. If your mother is Japanese and your father is Italian, you will still be only half Italian. You inherit something from both sides, no matter what.

Diana September 14, 2011 at 7:03 am

Pauly D is Italian. He is 100% European. Many people on this site just want him to be mixed.

Victor September 19, 2011 at 4:00 pm

Are you white ?

Serpent September 27, 2011 at 9:57 pm

People on this site want to declare everyone as either mixed or black. If you are white or identify as white, apparently it is a bad thing.

This site has an agenda.

notreally September 28, 2011 at 11:12 am

It’s not about anyone wanting him to be mixed. He is what he is. People just want him to be honest about it. Same thing goes for the rest of this cast mates on Jersey Shore. They shouldn’t have been associated with Italians, when in reality they’re just a group of young adults with various ethnic backgrounds hanging out and partying / drinking.

Louise September 10, 2011 at 11:06 am

He’s clearly not Italian and taking advantage of the American misconception. He’s not Italian, for God’s Sake LOOK AT HIM!!!

Stefania August 20, 2011 at 1:46 pm

At Mgn pauly D is Italian. You said Puerto rican stupid Puerto Rican are a huge mixed okay most of them have African in them of decent but Puerto rican are mixes same as of American. I don’t know where you read he is Puerto Rican or part lmao you must be stupid. Don’t judge and if you really want to know what he is then why don’t you fucking ask him yourself. FUCKIN IGNORANCE PEOPLE…FOR REAL WHO GIVES A SHIT. AMERICA ALL YA CARE IS NATIONALITY, RELIGIOUS AND THE WHOLE GAY LIFE. IT EXPLAIN WHY ASIA, RUSSIA AND EUROPE AND ALL THESE DIFFERENT ISLANDS HATE FUCKIN AMERICANS. BECAUSE THE TYPE OF PEOPLE YOU GUYS ARE MY GOSH, FULL OF GREED, FIGHT OVER STUPID SHIT TROUBLEMAKER RACIST NO KNOWLEDGE TRASH LACK OF NO EDUCATION. MOST OF YOU NOT ALL BUT THAT IS WHY NO ONE DON’T REALLY LIKE AMERICA. LOL

Thee baddest bitch August 20, 2011 at 9:00 pm

Amen to that gurl love it!!!

mgh August 22, 2011 at 6:43 pm

Okay, what is your issue? You can express your opinion without calling someone else stupid. You’re the one who’s behaving like an ignorant person right now. Anyway, people discuss ethnic backgrounds / origins here (as you can see from other comments). If that bothers you, why are you here?

I’m almost sure that Pauly D is just half Italian (from his father’s side). I don’t know for sure what his mom’s background is, however I don’t believe it’s Italian. That’s really all i was trying to say. I wasn’t trying to make generalizations about Puerto Ricans. That wasn’t my intention. You told me: “don’t judge”. I wasn’t trying to. My comments were brief, and I didn’t call anyone names (the way you did). I’m not even American. I don’t know what your whole rant is about. There is a bit of ignorance everywhere, not just on one continent.

Spokentruth September 7, 2011 at 5:12 pm

Your right his mom is portugese background, his father is italian explains his last name.

Frank G September 30, 2011 at 4:03 am

Pauly is Not Portuguese! I know plenty of Portuguese people and they’re not that dark. Some look Irish even. Pauly D is straight up Italain and there are plenty of italians who look just like him. There are many brown skinned italians.

Jarocho October 13, 2011 at 10:43 am

he TANS, you dummy, thats not his real skin COLOR, hes light skin, nobody wants to be pale and ugly looking like albinos

wtf September 18, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Oh stefania we at least have enough education to know to turn off the cap locks when we type.all that shit talking makes you no better then what youre claiming us Americans to be you fucktard.
Oh and “ya” isnt a word :) thanks and fuck off.

Ed October 15, 2011 at 1:03 am

Hey you all, you need to read up on this. He has even talked about it, its written up. His mother is not portuguese..she is spanish..thus he is spanish and italian..J WOW is Irish and Spanish…folks deal with it. Point is he is 100% Euro background. It is a known fact, why are people so hung up on this shyte…

Rossa Prendergast March 30, 2012 at 11:37 pm

There is no evidence to suggest he is anything but Italian.

wtf August 18, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Oh and um if you havent noticed HES DARK BECAUSE ALL OF THOSE FUCKERS ON THE SHOW TAN ARTIFICIALLY 24-7!!!!

wtf August 18, 2011 at 12:38 pm

I swear some of you fuckers are retarded and need to learn basic shit. ITALIANS ARE WHITE! EUROPEAN = WHITE!!!! They can come in dif.colors shapes and sizes but they are white just as french Portugues and spanish.why are you fuckers ashamed to admit it? And if you dont think youre white what exactly is it that you are? Cause you sure the fuck aint native American,Asian or black.

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 2:32 pm

Thank you for stating fact I do not know what these dumb brainwashed guilt filled wimps are today. Ask there parents grandparents they will say they are white. Incase you do not understand people being white is like hitting the jackpot almost everything you all use in your life everyday was created by us white europeans so if you don’t like being a member of the greatest culture in the worlds history and it is just with scientific contributions alone I’m not just saying this because I am white I hope all of you can finally open your eyes the older you get the more you will understand a american education is like a special ed class grow up. Thank you again WTF glad to see another educated person on here

gurl August 21, 2011 at 8:22 am

“….being white is like hitting the jackpot” “…..the greatest culture in the worlds history” lol a little ‘white pride’ sounding eh? btw i knew all along even the brownest of italians are european.

wtf September 18, 2011 at 2:58 pm

I dont understand a world where its not okay for whites to be proud but most blacks just voted for obama because hes black
Thats fine though right? Eh let all races be proud of what they are.

Brylie August 13, 2011 at 8:06 pm

italians can be light or dark skinned depending on what part of italy they are from. im italian but im white i mean im deff not 100% i have 5 ethnicitys but i do know that most italian people i know are white but tan very easily.

Thursday August 11, 2011 at 9:39 pm

Of course he is 100% Italian! Most Italians are dark i don’t care what they say.Sure some are white but the majority have olive skin and dark features just look at George Clooney’s ex Elisabetta she was very dark.

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 2:40 pm

Sorry the majority 90% are fair skinned that Pauly guy is half Puerto-Rican and from Rhode island look it up and think before you talk every time I go to Italy especially when we go out we who are from Old families that can trace there roots are fair skinned or normally tanned from the beach but only 3% look like pauly and they are hated by the rest because they are of mixed blood because of Sicily’s many different occupying countries over the years peasants are very dark from working outside all day sorry their of the lower class I bet your pissed a ignorant person flips when they hear the truth.

mgh August 6, 2011 at 6:26 pm

Pauly D isn’t just Italian. His father is likely of Italian descent, but his mother has a different background (Puerto Rican is what I’ve read).

Midnight August 3, 2011 at 5:49 pm

Hey, He’s the only one on the show that’s really Italian. How come in Italy they wouldn’t let the non Italian ones from the Jersey Shore drink? They weren’t making Italians look bad. (They weren’t making people from Jersey look bad either because people from Jersey don’t care what they do.) I’m just saying.

rafael August 3, 2011 at 6:13 pm

vinnys italian,and just because snooki was born in chile doesn’t mean shes not of italian descent.

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 2:46 pm

A complete humiliation of people who have real Italian blood. You can see it because you notice how almost 100% of the camera footage at clubs or other places they never show faces or bring them home because it makes the Jersey Shores idea that all Italians look like trashy Arabs and are loud crude and the girls humiliate us the worst by making people think a real Italian girl stumbles around say I need to get F**ked if that was my daughter she would have a broken jaw because acting like that on TV is inconceivable the Sammie girl is the closest one to be somewhat lady like and cultured

JJ July 30, 2011 at 3:41 pm

wow wtf itialians are not white my friend is 100 % and doesnt look white wow most italian think there white itialians are mixed they hate when ppl tell them the truth!

Zoe July 30, 2011 at 11:28 pm

Sorry to let you know but Italians considered white.The caucasian race has more sub-races.That’s why Turkish people,Armenian people etc. are considered white.You should read up on what white REALLY means!!

ATlantaKid August 3, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Can all of y’all just shut up!! Yes Pauly D looks very dark who really gives a f*** about what his ancestry is! He might be mixed up with anything…who is really going to know for sure so all of y’all just give it a rest and let Pauly D continue to look hot and dark as he always does.

Obviusly there is a LITTLE PERCENT, like in other southern european country (Spain,Portugal, Greece, south italy) that have a far arabic/turkish ancestry due to fights against muslim’s world over the centuries…like Pauly D. He can be considered 90 % white because he probably (but not sure) have some turkish/arabic far ancestry!
STOP ARGUE IF YOU DON’T KNOW HISTORY AND IF YOU DON’T KNOW THAT ITALY IS IN EUROPE!!! game over stupid americans or wanna be white’s people!!! that’s all

Amber Berg July 15, 2011 at 3:36 pm

What your saying is true, Im African American by the way! Southern parts of Europe had wars with other countries, and they were conquered by black moors 100’s and 100’s of years back, so I agree with you for the most part Italian people are white unless they recently mixed with someone, No one is going to be like I have black in me from a thousand years ago when the moors invaded my country!

ATlantaKid August 3, 2011 at 12:42 pm

Melanie Lombardi December 11, 2010 at 2:21 pm

I always thought he was some sort of Hispanic, I guess because he has dark features. I mean Vinny is Sicilian and he’s dark then Pauly even though Pauly does tan. I seen him on When I Was 17 awhile back and he was still as dark as he is today. But I guess he is full Italian.

rafael June 8, 2011 at 6:30 pm

really you thought he was spanish because of dark features?nobody anywhere in europe is darker than italians

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 2:54 pm

Sorry Spanish people that means people from Spain are white during the inquisition especially they were able to throw out the majority of the mixed blood and moors that stayed. Look at a portrait of all the Spanish leaders. Please just don’t be ignorant you make other people dumb by doing it.

Melanie Lombardi November 30, 2010 at 11:49 am

Well said Christophado!(: I’m full Italian, my grandparents are straight off the boat from Italy. I hate how people who aren’t Italian try to fake it and play as their one. There’s this guy in my school who looks EXTREMELY Mexican but claims he’s Italian. He said he spoke Italian, so I told him how do you say “Everything is good.” and responded with Bellissimo. I was like WTF?! Lol. We’re better because they all know they wished they were Italian. Cazzo tutte le altre razze, gli italiani sono i migliori! :D

Most Mexicans could pass for Italian, I’ve came across 100% Italians who would look much more “mexican” stereotypically speaking than the mexicans

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 2:57 pm

Your family is mixed race from history. You had to leave because Italy is not wealthy and the peasants like your family were told to leave or left because they were so poor seriously you will know this when you ask a relative what your ancestor’s job was when he left Italy. Maybe they worked for my family

wtf September 8, 2011 at 11:24 am

So because you speak or googled italian youre not white? Ok pues eres gringo y porque estoy hablando en español no soy gringa tampoco. EUROPEANS ARE WHITE! just because you come to the U.S it dosent change the fact that your background is white! Mine is partialy white as well because i have spanish ancestory being that i am Hispanic. Stop being a fucking tard pendejo.

Anonymous October 10, 2010 at 11:44 am

it all depends on which part of Italy he comes from. In northern Italy, they are usually blonder, and more south they tend to be darker, so the fact that hes dark doesnt really matter, hes still white (caucasian)

kayla September 21, 2010 at 6:38 pm

italians are not white. idk why people say that

Ambra September 28, 2010 at 10:50 am

ummm…..maybe because Italy is part of Europe, meaning they are Caucasians dumb***?? Oh, and in case you didnt know (’cause you obviously failed History and Geography), Caucasians=White! They only reason they are darker is due to mixing with other native cultures, either slaves or conquered. PLEASE educate yourself because this was a really retarded comment lol.

ATlantaKid August 3, 2011 at 12:52 pm

Hey idiot, guess what all Italians are not white. Man u r a true dumb ass guess what there are blacks who have been born in Italy does that make them white too or are u just that god
Damn dumb! Thanks! Have a nice day!

Amber Berg August 3, 2011 at 8:02 pm

Italians are white- if they are not white then what is? You know Christopher Columbus was Italian he was white- now southern Italians are darker like sicilians because they were conquered by the moors, and plus its right next to Africa so there is some mixing going on, but for the most part Italians are white- they are Europeans- they are white

rafael August 4, 2011 at 1:23 am

actually its more likely that cristobal colon,was from spain.

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm

it is like in the USA they can be born here but they are African-Italians you f**ked yourself with your own comment

Rob September 30, 2010 at 11:45 pm

Kayla is an ignorant idiot! Don’t even speak stupid girl you don’t know what your talking about. White doesn’t mean you have to have white skin stupid, white is just short for Caucasian. White ppl have skin tones ranging from pale-tan, but not brown skinned. Race is mostly determined from your facial structure and partially skin color.

http://racialreality.110mb.com/crowds.html These are a bunch of photos, of southern italian crowds. I seen every photo and only about 20 people don’t look white in various and there is over 200 people in all those photos combined

http://racialreality.blogspot.com/2004/08/tanned-vs-natural.html How are they not white? when they just got a tan? Idiot.

I would say about 3-5% of the native Italian population is more mixed race then white, but thats hardly anything.

Genetic studies on Italians also show low mix with other races.

mgh August 6, 2011 at 7:11 pm

His Italian surname is from his father’s side, but i’m fairly sure his mother is not Italian.

Mamita September 1, 2010 at 7:34 pm

KidW/Backbone August 3, 2011 at 12:58 pm

When in the hell did Spanish become white? WTF is wrong with u..just don’t ever say a f*cking thing more in ur life

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 3:04 pm

Idiot Spain is white your thinking about central and south america because they are mixed race and speak spainish the word Blue Blood which defines old wealthy or old Noble families was first used in Spain damn I really wish people who went to public school were not aloud to speak about these matters.

wtf September 8, 2011 at 11:34 am

Are you fucking serious? Buahahaha ‘ when did spanish become white’ Hahaha spain is white confused child! Mestizo not white which is what i am and most hispanics tend to be after spain raped every native chick they could find and even then when you grow up and get to be a big boy and fill out a census form youll find out that we still have to check the box that says white along with “native american” now you please shut the fuck up.:)

B girl August 20, 2010 at 1:04 pm

He IS part Portuguese. Maybe YOU should get YOUR facts straight.

ethnic August 12, 2010 at 8:25 pm

where did you get that from?

wtf September 8, 2011 at 11:37 am

Uhhhh yeah Portuguese is still….white.

DatMatt July 25, 2010 at 8:52 am

His hair is ridiculous…

myspace celebrity July 20, 2010 at 5:23 am

I heard he was also part Portuguese, but I guess not.

Blueblood88 August 18, 2011 at 3:28 pm

Portuguese are white he is really half Puerto Rican and from Rhode Island which has few Italians like his mixed race ass. I have an estate in Newport, Rhode Island for vacation and I go by my last name which is German and do not tell people who do not already know in my social class I am half Italian. Because of these mixed race idiots that act like animals that make others attribute that to what all Italians are like make others think it is true. MTV is hated by all Italian groups in the US and abroad because they will not remove jersey shore

rafael August 18, 2011 at 5:08 pm

blueblood88 you claim to have studied history,yet you say pauly is mixed race for being half puerto rican? look up the races of the world and find out what race 80% of puerto ricans are. and also are al pacino,paul sorvino,john turrturo ,nicholas turrturo,joe pesci, dean martin john gotti,vince lombardi mixed race,they are 100% italian.and they are darker than the darkest puerto rican i have met.the only white italians are the ones mixed with irish,or german,so much for italian pride.

mgh August 22, 2011 at 10:32 pm

rafael: ”the only white italians are the ones mixed with irish,or german”.
No, this is not true. I’ve seen many Italians with light skin, and they weren’t mixed with anything else. I’ve also seen pale italians. There is a lot of variation. Some are darker, some are lighter. Also keep in mind that some are only darker because their skin may be tanned from spending time in the sun. Some people tan very easily.

wtf September 8, 2011 at 11:41 am

Please please just shut the fuck up! God how can you people be so ignorant? Hahahaha damn Hahahahahahaha phew too many people out of touch with reality all because theyre ashamed to say they are white. EVEN THE JERSEY SHORE CAST REFERS TO THEMSELVES AS WHITE BOYS IN THE SHOW!!!
Such dumb shits, no wonder why the world is so fucked.

BIG PAC March 18, 2012 at 8:22 pm

It’s disheartening to see this comment from you Pat D. More to the point… your comment is COMPLETELY sexist and patronizing. The mother doesn’t matter? Who has ever heard of such a thing?
