Jersey Shore Family Vacation Gets Renewed For A Second Season; Cast Members React

It’s beginning to feel a lot like 2009. I am anticipating the premiere of a new Jersey Shore show and I could not be more excited. Jersey Shore Family Vacation is exactly the kind of escapism that we need these days.

The show hasn’t even premiered yet, but the the stars are blowing up social media with the news of a second season.

Instagram Roundup: Kyle Richards, Lala Kent, Amber Portwood, Trista Sutter, Snooki, & More!

A lot of the reality stars that you love (and love to hate- or at least love to make fun of) were very active on Instagram this week, but don’t worry about refreshing your feed. We have the most interesting photos from the past few days in this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.

Vicki Gunvalson’s ex-husband Donn Gunvalson spent time with Briana Culberson, Ryan Culberson, and their two sons in North Carolina. Randy Houska was also on grandpa duty with his Chelsea Houska’s children.

It’s tough for the reality TV super fans to keep up with all of their favorite shows, let alone all of the cast members on Instagram. Fortunately for you, I did all of the social media lurking for this week’s Instagram Roundup.

Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval, and Tom Schwartz enjoyed a boys weekend away at Big Bear. There’s still no word on who’s the “number one guy in this group,” but it looks like they all had a good time, which is something Jax could really use these days following the recent death of his father Ronald Cauchi.

Jenni “J-Woww

If you have suffered through just one episode of MTV’s Floribama Shore then you realize what an insult it is to every true Jersey Shore fan. The network couldn’t leave well enough alone. You don’t mess with a classic!

Thankfully, the less than stellar predecessor of MTV’s greatest accomplishment has stirred up a frenzy surrounding the original gorilla juiceheads and orange meatballs, and we are going to be treated to Jersey Shore Family Vacation. Very soon we won’t have to merely rely on tiny blurbs about Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino’s alleged tax evasion or Vinny Guadagnino’s musings on global warming. We will have the whole gang back together again…with the exception of Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola. However, Jenni “J-Woww” Farley is crossing her fingers for a change of sweetheart–and so am I!

Fans Can Suggest Locations For Jersey Shore: Family Vacation; Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s Husband Jionni LaValle Explains Why He Won’t Be On The Show

The Jersey Shore cast is reuniting for a brand new reality show. Hopefully it’s better than that random thirty minute special where they drove around and got lunch which aired on E! early this year. This revival is Jersey Shore: Family Vacation.

Nicole “Snooki” PolizziJenni “JWoww” Farley, Paul “Pauly D” DelvecchioMike “The Situation” Sorrentino, Deena Nicole CorteseVinny Guadagnino, and Ronnie Ortiz-Magro will all be back for the vacation. Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola will be skipping out on the fun, which is probably in her best interest since Ronnie is having a baby with someone else and she has a new relationship of her own. It’s not what’s best for the viewers, but it’s definitely a good move for her personally.

And so it begins…The cast of Jersey Shore hasn’t been filming their final season for very long, and they are already duking it out in bars, getting arrested, and leaking nude photos.  That didn’t take long, did it? is reporting that the crew (sans a pregnant Snooki) got into a massive bar brawl Friday night at Bamboo Bar in Seaside Heights.  A source reveals, “It started as a small fight, then turned into a massive brawl.  Jenni’s boyfriend beat up a few guys, Pauly knocked some guy out, [and] Ronnie [and] Sitch were all there as well, fighting off guys. Jenni sprained her ankle.”  No doubt all of these shenanigans happened with MTV’s cameras rolling.  I can only imagine the smack down that ensued if the fight involved Roger!


It’s a whole new world, Snooki is pregnant and Jersey Shore will continue to film with her this year. Since the show is so reliant on drunken plotlines, many of us were surprised to hear Snooki was coming back, but what do ya know? Contracts are a powerful thing.

Show producer Sally Ann Salsano tells Zap2It that everyone needs to calm down, and Snooki can still have fun at the shore. “She’s pregnant, not dead.” She insists that the show won’t work around her pregnancy or hide it, “We’re not ‘Friends’ — we can’t have [Snooki] hide behind a big purse and pretend it didn’t happen. It’s a reality show — you follow what happens in their lives.”

As for the bizarre image of a baby bumped Snooki sipping cranberry juice out of those ubiquitous plastic cups at Karma, Sally Ann insists that this is totally normal. “This can be like her last hurrah. Everyone takes that last vacation before the kids. So this is essentially Snooki’s last summer at the shore without a baby.”

Yes, all pregnant mothers love to go clubbing! It’s so natural. While the producer isn’t batting an eye, Snooki’s castmates do admit to being a bit weirded out. In an interview with People, Vinny Guadagnino says he was surprised by the news, “I had no idea. Actually people would call me, like, ‘Is the show still gonna work?’…And I was like, ‘What are you talking about, she’s not pregnant.’ And then all of the sudden, that whole thing came out and I was like, Oh my God.”

Oh my god is right! That’s the reaction most folks probably had. Vinny does think that “She’ll be a great mom.” and that this was a needed transition in Snooki’s life, adding “I think this is a good wakeup call, so I think she’ll be cool.”

Not content to stay out of the spotlight, cast member and Snooki wannabe Deena Nicole Cortese has been making headlines for having, what appears to be, a brand new face. Deena, who usually has a fuller face, was photographed out and about looking not only thinner but like her face had been molded by a professional. Like all celebrities, Deena denies having any work done, other than a nose job.

She tweeted, “just to let ya know..I have not got any plastic surgery. yes in the past i have had a nose job..and i am not against plastic surgery at all..i have thought about getting it redone to round the tip but haven’t yet..and don’t know if I am.”

She credits her transformation as the result of “eyebrow thinning,” makeup lessons, and a new diet.

Unless you’ve been in isolation for the past few weeks, you are well aware that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi is with child and engaged to boyfriend, Jionni Lavalle. Proving she’s a bit more calculated than her constantly drunk behavior lets on, the story was leaked to the media a month before Snooki announced it to the world, via her very own USWeekly cover, just like she was a real celebrity!

The news is out, and it’s now time for “sources” to pop and stir up drama about the reaction of her castmates. First up, a report on alleges Snooki’s spinoff co-star Jenni JWoww” Farley is jealous of Snooki as she totally thought she’d be the first to be engaged. The source reveals: “JWoww really thought that she would get engaged to [boyfriend] Roger [Matthews]. Snooki got pregnant out of nowhere and that prompted her engagement. JWoww feels like Snooki keeps stealing the spotlight and everything is about her.”

The girls are currently filming their spin-off in Jersey City. It’s been rumored that due to this new development, the show had to change direction. Well, we certainly hope so! If they kept the show with the same themes, it may as well be turned into a documentary on the development of fetal alcohol syndrome. But, it’s easy to see why JWoww would feel left out. Pregnancy trumps everything.

One castmate who is not jealous is Sammi “Sweetheart” Giancola, a report in UsWeekly quotes her as saying Snooki is going to be a fun parent.” She makes a good point when she points out that it’s not like Snooki is a lost kid, saying “It’s not like she’s 16 and pregnant. She’s doing her thing, she’s living her life and I just think she’s blessed. I can’t wait to see a little guido or guidette running around. I just think it’s going to be so exciting.”

Aw, Sammi finally lives up to her nickname! Sammi is also excited for Snooki’s wedding, which will surely be a classy affair. Sammi envisions it like this: “I can see her having a cheetah or zebra print-themed wedding because she loves animal print. . .I’m excited for them. I just can’t wait to party for the wedding and do all the fun things she has coming in her life now.”

Finally, Deena Nicole, Snooki’s fellow “meatball” and frequent partner in crime has gone on the record to say that despite rumors of the show’s demise without Snooki, the GTL can go on. She says, “The show doesn’t revolve around Snooki, it’s all of us. I don’t see why we couldn’t film without her.”

Snooki has said she doesn’t want to go back to the show since she doesn’t want to be the “pregnant woman at the club” but Deena says she can come visit. “She could come down and we could throw her a little baby shower before the little meatball pops out.” It’d be an extra special Sunday dinner!

The finale of Jersey Shore season 5 airs tonight on MTV at 10/9c.
