SallyAnn Salsano is an American writer and producer with more than 60 productions under her belt. She is most known for creating and producing one of the most talked about and highest rated reality TV shows of all time, Jersey Shore.

Prior to her Jersey Shore days, other popular show credits include The Bachelorette, A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila and Extreme Makeover: Wedding Edition. Salsano owns her own reality TV production company, 495 Productions, a nod to the 495 freeway that ran through her hometown in Farmingdale, NY. Prior to her success as a producer, Salsano attended the University of Missouri, where she earned her bachelor’s in accounting and minored in communications.

Salsano’s love affair with reality TV may have started when she was a finalist for MTV’s The Real World: Miami in 1996 and almost became a cast member. However, as an intern for The Sally Raphael Show, her career took a turn when she was promoted from accountant to producer. Since then, Salsano has been able to produce shows centering around dating advice, celebrity relationships and of course drama-filled dating problems. Her most recent work includes Party Down South, Freak Out, and Snooki & JWOWW,

Despite the controversial topics in many of Salsano’s shows, she is in a very understanding celebrity marriage with someone who understands her busy work schedule. In a celebrity interview with CupidsPulse.com, Salsano spoke candidly about why audiences love watching reality TV, “I feel like we all get caught up in relationship shows because everyone is in or has been in some kind of screwed up relationship, and that’s just normal.”
