Following the ratings smash of the current and third season of Jersey Shore, a new report now states MTV is working on a 4th season with the same cast.
This news is a bit of a surprise as the network had intended for the 3rd season to the the final one with the original cast, while finding a new cast to keep the franchise going.
According to the HollywoodLife, MTV has been in contact with the current cast members, telling them to keep May 2011 open for filming of the show’s fourth season!
A source close to the negotiations also tells the site that the current contracts of the cast gives MTV the right to bring them back for a fourth season. As of the moment, MTV has yet to choose a destination for filming.
This move by MTV makes a lot of sense as the ratings for this season have been nothing short of phenomenal. The premiere was seen by an astonishing 8.4 million viewers, making it MTV’s most-watched series telecast of all time. Things have yet to slow down as the second episode was seen by 8.6 million viewers.
In other Shore news, TMZ is reporting that Snookiand JWowwmight be next in line to get their own spin-off show. The only other cast member with a confirmed spin-off show as this point? DJ Pauly D.
TMZ reports MTV has ordered the two BFFs to film a pilot this weekend, meaning MTV has yet to officially pick up the show, and will only greenlight it if they like the pilot.

In what can only be described as a reality stars verbal smackdown, it seems Kim Kardashian has stepped on some Teen Mom toes following some comments she made on her blog and twitter.
It all started with a tweet as Kim passionately responded to a recent headline with stated over 90 students were pregnant or recently gave birth at a high school in Tennessee. “Does the show ‘Teen Mom’ disturb anyone else? Can’t get this Memphis story out of my head. This should NOT be trendy!” tweeted the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star.
Kim then followed up with a blog posting on her site. “While I was at ‘The Today Show’ this morning I saw a story about a Memphis high school where 90 young female students were either pregnant or have given birth this year! … It seems that shows like ‘Teen Mom’ are all of a sudden making teen pregnancy seem cool in the eyes of young girls… The kids from these shows are all over the news, even on the covers of magazines, and have become almost like celebrities, but girls, these are not people you should idolize,” she wrote.
Actually well written and pretty good points by Kim, except when one is solely famous due to a sex tape that she might or might not have released, people are not so quick to forget, evident by the retort of Teen Mom star Amber Portwood.
“Last time I checked, Kim Kardashian had a sex tape floating around on the internet and I’m pretty sure she made a lot of money off of it. She made a sex tape when she was younger and she wants to bash the girls on Teen Mom?” stated Amber to E! News. Oh yes she did!
Amber added, “If you read the articles about the show, they do nothing but talk about how the show reveals how hard it is for all of us. It doesn’t glamorize anything! It shows the heartache we’ve all gone through. We may be ‘celebrities’ because because our face is out there, but it’s only because we’ve done some bad things. That’s not glamorous.”
Teen Mom’s 2 Jenelle Evansalso added in her two cents though not as eloquently as her peer. “I want to say, s–t happens,” said Jenelle.
Poor poor Kimmy, she’ll never be able to live down her sex tape.

On the 13th episode of the very successful first season, all thanks to Camille?, the ladies celebrate Taylor’s birthday with a lavish bash on a hotel rooftop—but it’s a fiery conflict between Kim and Kyle that takes the cake. Elsewhere, Camille’s marital issues reach the breaking point. The episode titled “Unforgivable” airs at 9/8c on Bravo.
Watch What Happens Live – Though the guide says Debbie Gibson is the guest on tonight’s show, Adrienne Malooftweeted this week that both she and Taylor Armstong will be on the show following the finale.
Also in a new interview with PEOPLE magazine, Kyle Richards reveals she is dreading tonight’s episode. “All I can say is this is what I’ve been dreading the whole season,” Richards told PEOPLE. “What’s coming up created an enormous amount of anxiety for me and it’s a very emotional and very difficult episode to see.”
Kyle adds that she hopes viewers will look at the whole picture when it comes to her blowout with sister Kim on the finale. “I get some flack for my relationship with my sister, but you’re just seeing parts that are on screen so it’s very hard to understand a relationship that has been so many years in the making,” Kyle, 42, said.
In more BH news, the National Enquirer is reporting that Camille Grammer has officially signed on to do a second season, but get this, Bravo reportedly had to cave in to a lot of her demands.
According to the Enquirer, Camille made the deal on Tuesday during a meeting with producers of the show, who reluctantly met her demands. The National Enquirer is not the most credible source so only time will tell if the story is true or not.
And finally, Lisa Vanderpump is a guest on The Ellen Show today to dish about the finale. Ellen DeGeneres tweeted a backstage photo of Lisa with Giggy in a baby stroller. Click the continue reading button to see the photo, and a preview clip of tonight’s episode below -

Following Monday night’s episode which showedSnookigetting completely trashed and arrested, a new episode of Jersey Shore is set to air tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
On the 4th episode this season, Snooki is released from jail; Deena meets a Ronnie look-alike; and J-Woww breaks up with her boyfriend.
Fast forward to today asJWoww’s ex-boyfriend Thomas Lippolis is now allegedly trying to sell nude photos of her, something he is now denying. In fact, JWoww recently got a judge to alt the sales of the photos which she claims were taken without her permission “while she was under the effects of pre-surgical and post-surgical anesthesia” back in February 2010.
In other Jersey Shore news, ever since MTV aired the season 3 trailer which shows Sammipacking up her bags and leaving the Shore house, many fans of the show have been wondering what caused Sammi to leave the show.
Well, we now have the answers as RadarOnline actually reported this back in August that Sammi walked out on the show after seeing footage of Ronnie cheating on her. Radar reported back then that Sammi got into a rage after watching the season 2 episodes that showed Ronni not only cheating on her, but then coming back to the house to sleep with her.
See, the cast was allowed to watch the season 2 Miami footage which aired while they were filming the 3rd season. They were allowed to watch so that they could film the MTV after shows. This also explains why Sammi appears to randomly get angry with Ronnie this season, while bringing up what he did to her in Miami. While the show doesn’t mention this, she was watching the Miami footage along with the rest of the world. This might also explain why she decided to apologize to Snooki on the most recent episode.

TMZ is reporting Survivor Nicaragua winner Judson Birza aka Fabiowas arrested Wednesday afternoon on suspicion of being under the influence of a controlled substance.
According to law enforcement sources, cops first noticed Fabio riding a skateboard in the street, which is considered illegal. Fabio was then stopped by the cops during which they noticed he was acting strangely.
Ultimately, the cops determined he was under the influence and arrested him. TMZ adds that Fabio was also booked for an unrelated DUI warrant as well as a probation violation.
He was held on $37,000 bail. A new report by TMZ this morning states Fabio posted bail last night and was released, with a white stretch limo coming to pick him up. Nice to see he’s putting his $1 million winnings to good use.
Fabio seems to be denying the charges as he told TMZ, “Dude, this is such bulls**t … I got treated like a baby.”

In the 1 minute, 38 second video clip, Camille claims: “The whole season was set up to make me look bad.” She then gets into it with Kyle, stating, “You bully me all the time and I’m fed up.” Kyle fires back: “Quit using the buzzword of the moment.”
Kyle also brings up Camille’s porn past, defending her friend Faye Resnick by stating doing porn is way more corrupt that doing a tasteful spread in Playboy. Other issues brought up? Kim might have a drinking problem, Kim is asked is the feels bullied by Kyle, and Lisa’s husband Ken can be seen stating he absolutely hates someone, whom we believe is Cedric.
The first part of the reunion showdown airs Jan. 27 with part 2 scheduled to air Feb. 1 at 10 p.m. ET on Bravo.
In other BH news, Camille Grammer continues her press tour, perhaps still hoping to redeem her image, with her latest appearance on Lopez Tonight Tuesday night.
During the interview, Camille tried to backtrack on the comments she made about estranged husband and father of her two children, Kelsey Grammer, when she strongly insinuated he was a cross-dresser. She told George Lopez her comments on the Howard Stern was simply a big joke.
However, TMZ is flat out calling Camille a liar. According to TMZ, it couldn’t be a joke because Camille has also shared the same exact information with some members of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills cast. People from the show tell TMZ that Camille was very bitter over the divorce, and would tell anyone who would listen that Kelsey loved to wear women’s clothing. Not surprising as Camille has been shown being very vindictive on the Bravo hit show.
The preview clip of the reunion is below -

More details are now coming out about the fight and what is clear is that what Bravo showed on TV was just a tip of the iceberg. In her latest Bravo blog, Kandi Burruss, who witnessed the entire fight, reveals some new details about what really went down. Excerpts from Kandi’s blog below -
“They left out some footage from that Channel 11 clip of NeNe. During the clip the news anchor pulled out flowers and gave them to NeNe saying we decided to give you flowers since we’re not paying you any money. That’s why Kim said NeNe is an intern at 11 Alive… The first part of that argument was like an hour and a half. I don’t see how people can argue that long. Then they calmed down for a second and started back up for another 45 minutes. That’s too much… The bus ride alone could have been a whole episode.”
Arguing over 2 hours? Yikes. And in a new interview with TV Guide, Nene Leakes continues to feel she was the victim in this latest fight, despite being the one who started and escalated the argument. In the interview, which she gave on Tuesday (yesterday), Nene admits the fight wasn’t about Sweetie, apologizes to her fans and family, blames it all on Kim and also blames Bravo and her costars for not being there for her during what she called a difficult time in her life.
“”It’s an embarrassing thing to see as a mother and as an adult,” said Nene in the interview, apologizing to her fans while slamming Kim. “I apologize to my viewers and fans, and to my children and family and friends who love and care about me. …I apologize to them for them having to see me stoop to such a trashy level. When you fool with trash, it can get all over you.”
More excerpts from Nene’s interview below -
TVGuide.com: What was going on with you at that time that?
Leakes: It was a very, very bad time. I was not healthy at the time, and [Leakes' husband] Greg and I were in a real bad place in our marriage. I really shouldn’t have been on the bus. Everyone that I worked with knew that I shouldn’t have been on the bus — so, they probably wanted me to be on the bus for those reasons.
TVGuide.com: Did you feel obligated to stick up for Sweetie?
Leakes: I’m not sticking up for Sweetie, I’m just saying I couldn’t take it anymore. When I entered the bus, everybody was complaining. They only show me complaining, but everyone complained… Kandi, Kandi’s backup singers, everyone. Yes, Sweetie wants to be talked to that way, fine, but it’s offensive when you around a group of people to just sit there and say those words all day long. By the time Kim said Don Juan and Sweetie should stay at the house, I was like, “No! They can’t!”
TVGuide.com: Because you visited specifically to watch her and Kandi perform on tour, right?
Leakes: Right. But being friends with Kim, if you knew her, you’d know you have to walk on egg shells. She’s always offended. Mind you, she can say anything she wants to say to you or about you — but you can’t say nothing about her or who she’s dating. She can ask you all the questions she wants, and make all the jokes and comments she wants, but you can’t do the same with her. Going into a relationship with her is one-sided. (Doesn’t this sound like Nene describing herself?)
TVGuide.com: Is there something about Kim that’s made you angry in general? You seemed to be more angry this season…
Leakes: I don’t know what show you’re watching, but I think I’ve had a good season. You’ve seen for the past several episodes me working at 11 Alive. Early on in this season, there was a clip of me and Dwight going at it, and one of me and Greg, and the time when I talked to my son, but those things happened awhile ago.
TVGuide.com: But are you considering [returning to the show]?
Leakes: Nope. Right now, I’m just not interested in doing a fourth season. I don’t know if I would change my mind later. With everything going on in my life, I can’t work with a bunch of women who are non-supportive. I can’t work with a bunch of women who don’t support one another. I just can’t work like that anymore. For my own sanity.
Interesting she is now apologizing following all the backlash. And finally, a fan also asked Nene yesterday why she wanted to leave the show, she replied, “No more time 4 DRAMA.” Oh the irony.
Following Nene’s comments that she no longer wishes to do the show, a lot of fans are wondering if this is simply a negotiation ploy though after reading her latest interviews, I’m starting to think she is simply believing her own hype at the moment. With her upcoming appearance on the Celebrity Apprentice, I’m getting that she feels she no longer needs the RHOA. It will be interesting to see how this all plays out.
