After the city of Hoboken refused to let Jersey Shore stars Snooki and JWoww film, the people of Jersey City took them in like tanned refugees. In a report posted by NJ.com, Jersey City mayor, Jeremiah Healy, was excited to have the gals on-board, thinking their presence would “boost Jersey City’s reputation and spur the local economy.”
Unfortunately, some establishments in town are rejecting the spin-off. One bar, LITM, reportedly put up an anti-Snooki sign so everyone can know the guidette is not welcome there. Bar owner, Will Kelly said that filming would be “intrusive” and Barcade owner, Paul Kermizian thinks the high-end environment of his half-bar, half-arcade club, Barcade would not mix with the one associated with Jersey Shore, which makes me think he hasn’t seen the show.
Right now, however, which club the girls will turn into their Jersey Shore version of the infamous Karma might be the last thing on their minds. While they were due to start filming Tuesday, shooting has been delayed, with no comment from 495 productions. The ladies have been silent about the matter on their social media accounts. Could they be on strike, holding out for a bigger paycheck? Only time will tell.
In other news, with this spin-off slated to start shooting and the upcoming premiere of The Pauly D Project, the future of Jersey Shore, itself ,may be up in the air. On a recent appearance on Live With Kelly, both Sammi and Deena said there was no news on a sixth season. Sammi said, “We haven’t heard anything.” Both Deena and Sammi said they would “love to film again” with Deena adding, “I pray we film again.”
Previously, we reported that there were rumors of moving the cast to Las Vegas or Australia, which might give the show the boost it needs. The fifth season, currently airing on MTV, has had lower ratings than earlier ones, and just isn’t as interesting or fun as the ones before. Half the cast seems completely checked out (JWoww in particular, seems incredibly bored) and the other half of the cast is still doing the same stuff they’ve done for ages in an attempt to stay on the air.
And finally, Snooki recently tweeted some pics of her and JWoww as the good folks from Sophisticate’s Hairstyle attempted, keyword being attempted, to give the Jersey gals a classy hair makeover! Did they succeed? The photos are below and we’ll let you be the judge!
UPDATE - A representative from the LITM bar tells Reality Tea “LITM has never displayed an “anti-Snooki” message, banner, or sign above its bar. Proprietor Jelynne Jardiniano’s decision to not participate as a filming location for this reality series is based in LITM’s commitment to maintaining the comfort of our customer base.”
