Those wild and crazy kids of the Jersey Shore are 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?

A week after MTV aired an episode of their mega hit show Jersey Shore, which showed Sammie “Sweetheart” Giancola punching boyfriend Ronnie, Sammie is now expressing remorse for her actions.

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 Cortese on 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.

Just weeks after the reported hook-up between Angelina Pivarnick and Albie Manzo, RadarOnline is now reporting that the newest cast member of Jersey Shore, Deena Cortese had a steamy dance session with Christopher Manzo, son of Caroline Manzo.

According to RadarOnline, the two ran into each other in the VIP section of the 118 Lounge this past Saturday, where they reportedly got down and dirty on the dance floor.

“Deena was basically humping Chris in front of everyone,” said an onlooker. No word on what happened between the two following their dry humping session on the dance floor.
