The Hills star's production company, Pratt Productions, is teaming up with Masella on a new dating show, Fist Pumping for Love, which will follow Snooki's ex as he travels the country "in search of love."
"It is the perfect partnership for me as a growing player in reality television," Pratt said in a statement released Thursday, adding that if you don’t know Emilio, 21, "You haven't seen nothing yet."
"I am tired of these fake Italian girls," says Masella, who dated the controversial Jersey Shore star (real name Nicole Polizzi) for four months. "I want a real guid-ette who can speak Italian, so we are prepared to take my search from Hollywood, Calif., to the streets of Howard Beach in Queens, N.Y."
Filming started Wednesday night in Masella's local bar and continues this weekend in the Long Island club Glow. Pratt's wife and Hills costar, Heidi Montag is also listed as an executive producer of the show. --Eunice OhJill Johnson/JPI; Pacific Coast News
