It seems the 5th season of the Jersey Shore will bring us some more of the same ol as Snookiwas photographed over the weekend getting wasted on a beach.
A day after Vinny quit the show, Snooki, 23, and fellow castmate Deena Corteseleft their Shore house to visit Jenkinson’s Club and the Point Pleasant Beach on Saturday while the MTV cameras rolled.
The two were pictured having a good time, but by the end of the day, the Snooks appeared to be wasted and even needed help standing up. She also had to be escorted to a waiting taxi with the help of some strangers. Perhaps Snooki, who has always been open about her crush on Vinny, is having a hard time dealing with his departure.
And if you recall, Snooki pulled the same stunt last season on the Jersey Shore when she got completely wasted on the beach, leading to her arrest for disorderly conduct. Lesson not learned.
Below, more photos from Snooki and Deena’s day of adventure.

According to a new report, that will soon be the case with the Jersey Shore cast. In the latest issue of UsWeekly magazine, an insider reveals MTV is planning to replace the entire cast once the fifth season is over.
“After this group comes back from Italy and shoots season 5 this summer, that will be the end for them,” says an insider. The reason? It all comes down to money… of course.
See while the show is a mega hit for the MTV network, they are having to fork over millions to the cast members. A report that came out earlier this year revealed the core four of the group (Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and DJ Pauly D) were each earning $100,000 per episode for the fourth season. That amounts to over $1 mil each for the entire season.
Quite frankly, MTV feels the new stars will be “a lot cheaper” plus it also frees up the current gang to pursue their spinoffs. MTV has confirmed Snooki and JWoww have one in the works, as well as Pauly D and The Situation.
The source however promises the cast “will leave on a high note!” The cast departed Italy last Saturday as filming for season 4 ended and season 5 is scheduled to begin filming any day now in Seaside Heights, New Jersey.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THIS REPORT? IS REPLACING THE CAST A GOOD IDEA?
Despite being on another side of the world, the Jersey Shore cast just can’t seem to stay out of trouble.
The latest is that Snookiaka Nicole Polizzi is currently in Italian police custody after crashing into a patrol car in the city of Florence. TMZ reports Snooki was driving when she struck the cop car, but sources connected with the production insist, “Zero alcohol was involved.”
A witness reveals Snooki smacked into the back of the cop car, wedging her ride between the car and a highway protection wall. The witness adds that Deena was in the passenger seat at the time of the crash and had to exit the car through the window because the door was blocked by the wall.
The good news however is that no one was injured. And while Snooki remains in custody, sources close to production state it is not a formal arrest.
After the widely reported contract hold outs, all of the Jersey Shore cast members have signed on to return for season 4!
TMZ reports Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and the rest of the gang will be heading to Italy in May to start filming. While TMZ doesn’t state the exact amount the cast will be earning, it does add that everyone is “very pleased with the outcome.”
Meanwhile, Entertainment Weekly is reporting that the cast got a HUGE raise! Just how huge? Let’s try over $100,000 per episode! Yes, you read that right. Sources close to the negotiations tell EW members of the “core group” are now pulling down at least $100,000 per episode.
With each season producing an average of 14 episodes, this means a number of the Jersey Shore cast will earn over $1 million each for season 4 to simply drink, party & fight. Wowzers! The cast reportedly earned $30,000 per episode for season 3.
And finally, MTV announced last week it has picked up two Jersey Shore spin-off shows. The first show will focus on DJ Pauly D and his life on the road as “one of the country’s most in-demand DJs.” While the second show will follow BFFs Snooki and JWoww, chronicling their experiences as roommates after their lives on “Jersey Shore.”
MTV has ordered 12 episodes of each spin-off, and plans to debut both shows sometime in 2012.

Those wild and crazy kids of the Jersey Shoreare already stirring up some controversy in Italy though they have yet to arrive for the filming of their 4th season.
See while MTV confirmed earlier this year that season four of the super mega hit show will be filmed in Italy, the show had yet to actually air in the country. That all changed this week when the show made its debut on Italian television, and let’s just say the Italians are no fans. In fact, the cast is now on the receiving end of some major backlash.
“They embody the worst stereotypes of Italians, multiplied by thousands and Americanized,” wrote columnist Roberto Del Bove in Rome newspaper New Notzie.
It only gets worse as a preview of the show posted on an MTV Italia website drew some nastier comments.”When I see this, I wonder whether [Osama] Bin Laden had a point,” lamented one poster, going a bit overboard perhaps.
“Slicked hair, exaggerated narcissism, boundless love for the family and outlandish eccentricity” is what was written about the show in another popular Rome newspaper, Corriere della Sera.
The Italians might be happy to know that only part of the fourth season will be filmed in Italy. This isn’t the first time the Jersey Shore clan has been criticized for their shenanigans as the show also drew major ire from Italian-American groups during their first season, leading to some boycotts by advertisers.
Love them or hate them, the show is definitely here to stay as the season 3 finale last week drew record ratings for MTV, with over 7.6 million viewers tuning in.
Speaking of season 4, RadarOnline is now reporting that there is a contract dispute brewing with some of the cast members. Apparently, cast members “Snooki, The Situation, JWoww and Pauly D have not finalized their contracts because they can’t agree on the amount.”
“As of last week Deena hadn’t signed her contract either but Ronnie, Sammi, and Vinny were done,” reveals a source, um does Deena not realize she’s very expendable?. “Time is short, everyone is getting concerned because they’re supposed to leave for Italy soon, I just hope they can settle it,” the source adds.
The cast also went through contract disputes last year as they went on a short strike before season three; eventually negotiating a 200% raise from $10,000 to $30,000 per episode.
And finally, the reunion show airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c. We will revisit the top moments of the show with the cast and also find out why Sammi and Ronnie broke up again for the 2000th time back in January.
TELL US – THE ITALIANS, THEY HAVE A POINT NO? PLUS THOUGHTS ON THE REUNION SHOW?
The drama began when the off-on couple went out to a club on last week’s episode, and Sammi saw Ronnie talking to a female, which led to a jealous rage once they got back home, and later on a punch in the face.
TMZ caught up with Sammi and costar Deena Corteseon Tuesday in NYC (same day the above picture was taken) and when asked about the altercation with Ronnie, Sammi revealed she’s “appalled and disgusted” at herself for punching him, adding that the whole thing was a “low point” in her life.
Deena also chimed in stating “violence is not the answer.” According to TMZ, the Seaside Police is not planning to investigate the incident unless Ronnie presses charges, which doesn’t look like is going to happen.
As for the current relationship status between Sammi and Ronnie, the two broke up again just two weeks ago following reports that Ronnie was creeping at a nightclub. No word of whether or not they’ve gotten back together again… for the umpteenth time.
And yes, pictured on the far right with Sammi and Deena is Teen Mom star Maci Bookout. According to the HollywoodLife, Maci, 19, hung out with the Jersey Shore stars on Tuesday, as the trio enjoyed dinner and drinks. No word on why Maci was in New York, though it was likely to meet with MTV. The latest issue of Life & Style magazine also reports Maci got a recent boob job, going from an A cup to a C cup.
And finally, a new episode of Jersey Shore airs tonight. On the 6th episode this season titled ‘Should We Just Break Up?‘ Snooki meets a guy, but he may or may not be engaged, Pauly makes peace with an old enemy; and Ronnie’s hard partying takes a toll on his relationship with Sammi.
The all new episode airs on MTV as 10/9c.

Hours after TMZ broke the news yesterday, MTV officially confirmed that not only will there be a 4th season of Jersey Shore, but it will be filming in Italy!
The MTV press release teases the ladies are excited “to trade gorillas for Italian stallions,” and that “this wacky and dysfunctional family is about to turn “the beautiful country” upside down.” More from the press release below -
“While the stateside ‘Jersey Shore’ locales have become iconic for our audience, it’s really the constantly evolving dynamic among the cast that keeps them coming back each season, and Europe is a fresh spin on a show that continues to reach new heights for us,” said Chris Linn, executive vice president of programming and head of production for MTV. “The cast is headed to the birthplace of the culture they love and live by. We can’t wait to see what erupts as a result.”
According to TMZ, MTV began working on getting visas for the entire cast and crew two months ago, and a source reveals the network has already lined up some of Vinny’s Italian relatives to host the Jersey gang for an authentic Guadagnino dinner.
Let’s hope the cast knows how to say ‘Gym, Tan, Laundry’ in Italiano! Filming is slated to begin in the spring.
