I realize they are probably too old to be the party animals they are at this age (although that throws a wrench in my social plans), but they are still human, vulnerable, and fun-loving. You can't help but relate to that…or maybe you can't, but I can.
On last night's episode, the boys have recently made peace with Jionni. Jenni calls Roger who reveals that Jenni has been pot stirring about Jionni's mismatched relationships with the guy roommates. Jenni isn't happy that Jionni says she's been talking crap about her. Rawn is quick to defend Jenni although he knows what was said at the guys' night out. Jenni decides to go straight to the source and calls Jionni. She questions why Jionni thinks that she's been talking smack. As far as Jenni is concerned, Jionni wasn't present for the first half of the summer. He bends, she forgives, and the pair loves each other for the sake of Snooki.
With the final season of Jersey Shore completed, the cast has more time to hit up events and work on their passion projects and side businesses. Last night Vinny Guadagnino hit up the season premiere party for Portlandia and took some time to dish with Tom Murro.
Vinny shared that he's been keeping himself busy with his upcoming spinoff show. He tells Tom, "I have my spinoff show taping, it's going well.''
Vinny also had some kind words for his co-star, Snooki. The cast members have all been excited to see the changes in her lifestyle and are anxious to babysit for their new nephew. Vinny calls new mom Snooki a "saint". When asked how his pint-sized co-star is doing, he replied ''She's a saint, she's a completely different person now, she's an amazing mother! She's all about the baby!''
If you've been watching anything on MTV, chances are you've seen previews for it's new reality show Buckwild. It's like Jersey Shore, but with rednecks…and a lot of dangerous looking antics. I think it would make Honey Boo Boo proud.
Remember when Italian Americans and the citizens of New Jersey had such an issue with our favorite GTLers? Well, West Virginians and Southerners are feeling the same way about Buckwild. I have to say though that all of this controversy is making me want to watch the insanity…even though, as a Southerner, I should be totally offended.
We resume the Jersey Shore with Vinny trying to make amends with Snooki's fiance Jionni…at his future son's baby shower no less. It's super awkward. Jionni questions Vinny about joking that Vin is the actual dad. The conversation is seamless, and all is good in the land of Jionni and Vin. Really? I thought that MTV would have sprung for more drama. Thankfully Jionni's insecurities don't get in the way of a bottle chugging contest. Rawn wins. Who is shocked?
Snooki loves unwrapping baby clothes, champagne, and wine, typical baby shower gifts. Jenni asks Jionni to come around more often which basically calls him out for not being present up to this point. Snooki is just thrilled for a baby day. While she still can't look at Mike, she's excited about all of her presents. Mike is planning his entrance for when he can finally make amends with Snooki. After a Mike-Snooki video montage, Sitch heads to Nicole's apartment. I'm unsure as to whether this is part of his twelve step program. Yikes.
With just three more episodes left of Jersey Shore, JWoww and Snooki are going to send it off in style. The finale is on December 20th, but the Shore girls will reunite just 2 weeks later for New Year's Eve.
MTV has invited JWoww and Snooki to be the co-hosts for their New Year's Eve party: Club NYE 2013.
The Jersey Shore guidettes will be joined by musical guests Ke$ha (Jenelle Evans is packing her car for the road trip as we speak), Ne-Yo, Sean Kingston, Rita Ora (so we can rule out Rob Kardashian attending) and Conor Maynard.
The meatballs decide to have a dressy dinner date since Jionni is too preoccupied with his softball game to come visit Snooki.Rawn decides it's the perfect opportunity to put on a giant gorilla suit and scare the crap out of a napping Jenni. The gang is heading to dinner (minus the meatballs), and Jenni shares her scare with Sam. Mike wonders why Snooki can't just smile and have a good time with the roommates. Rawn totally disapproves of Jionni putting softball before his pregnant fiance.
Snooki and Deena are enjoying a chill meatball evening. Snooki is glad that they can still have fun without being blackout drunk and getting arrested. She asks Deena to accompany her to the baby store the following day after work. Deena hems and haws about how she already promised Sam she'd go with her to the grocery store. She can't let Snooki go shopping for the baby when they've already bought her everything for her surprise shower. Great save there, Deena! She manages to change the subject to not sleeping naked because she's terrified of bugs laying eggs in her Britney. It's perfectly acceptable dinner conversation, right?
We've got a situation here! I have to thank Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino for making that his catchphrase. It just makes blogging life easier. This time around, the Jersey Shore star is not only battling sobriety, but also a vodka company. If it were anyone other than Mike, I'd say they would likely chuckle at the irony.
Mike is suing Devotion Spirits, a company with which he penned an endorsement deal in 2010 (long before heading to rehab for addiction issues). The Situation claims that he maintained his end of the bargain, promoting the protein-infused vodka (yes, you read that correctly…protein-infused. It's alright to gag. I did.) and making the brand the success it is today. While I've never heard of it, I'm not surprised. I prefer to get my protein from some fancy scrambled eggs not my vodka tonic.
We begin with Rawn, Snooki, and Deena working at the Shore Store. The meatballs are already hoping to bail on their shift, and hard-working Ronnie is beyond frustrated. He and Danny retaliate by donning trucker hats and ditching work like true meatballs. Mike calls his sister and dishes on Paula. He wants a classy girl, and his sister gives him advice on how to proceed with "shocking" Paula. A giant storm rolls in (which I realize is nothing compared to the super storm), and Snooki and Deena are freaking out. Down the boardwalk, Ronnie and Danny drink fruity cocktails and laugh about the chaos the girls are likely unleashing on the store.
