If anyone knows about the good and the bad sides of being reality television stars, it's the gang over at the Jersey Shore.

So who better to offer some advice to 7-year-old Honey Boo Boo, aka Alana Thompson, on how to handle her newfound fame than them, right?

"Run with it, run with it, run with it!" Paul "Pauly D" DelVecchio, 32, said earlier today when he and Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro stopped by E! News to promote Thursday's premiere of the sixth and final season of Jersey Shore. "Embrace it! Embrace it and go for it."

The Honey Boo Boo haters remind Ortiz-Magro, 26, of the Shore's early days. "She gets the same feedback we got," he said. "You know, 'Look at these crazy people! What are they doing?' Enjoy it while you can…Make the best of it."

Pauly D warns not to take anything too personally. "Just push it aside, stay positive," he said. "That's what I do."

And make sure not to forget where you came from.

"I would tell her to have a good support system and try to be grounded," said Sorrentino, 30, adding, "All of us have a good system when we come home where there's family and friends and whatnot to ground us to make sure that we stay true to ourselves."

And call us crazy, but wouldn't it be fun to see Honey Boo Boo spend a summer in Seaside Heights? "I think she would kill it," Ortiz-Magro predicted. "She'd be like the new Snooki."
