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?
Radaronline.com 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 Guadagninosays 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.

TELL US: DO YOU THINK SNOOKI WILL BE A GOOD MOM? HOW WILL THE SHOW WORK WITH A SOBER, PREGNANT SNOOKS? DO YOU THINK DEENA HAD PLASTIC SURGERY?
Unless you’ve been in isolation for the past few weeks, you are well aware that Jersey Shore star Nicole “Snooki” Polizziis 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 Hollywoodlife.com 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 UsWeeklyquotes 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.

TELL US: WOULD YOU WATCH THE SHOW WITHOUT SNOOKI? DO YOU THINK JWOWW IS JEALOUS? WHAT DO YOU THINK SNOOKI’S WEDDING DRESS WILL LOOK LIKE?
If one could pinpoint the appeal of Jersey Shore–besides the public’s limitless thirst for footage of drunk folks–it may be the unabashed, unashamed way that its cast members live their lives. Nowhere does this become more apparent than in this fantastic interview of Nicole ‘Snooki’ Polizzi and Jennifer ‘Jwoww’ Farley. While most reality stars take us through a tame, sanitized, media-trained version of events, these two hold nothing back.
At one point, Snooki admits to being bisexual, which is not a huge surprise considering she got very close to roommate Deena in the last season of the show. But rather than be coy, Snooki is out and proud: “I would consider myself bi. I’ve done stuff with girls before. But I would never be with a girl because I like… penis. But I’ve experimented,” says Snooki to the Huffington Post.
What’s a bit more surprising is that both girls suspect that their roommate Mike ‘The Situation’ may be gay. JWoww says, “I can’t confirm or deny with Mike, but if he was, it would all make sense.”
The rest of the interview is a serious delight. Both women admit to having Google Alerts set on their names and enjoy their constant press attention, even if much of it is false and/or negative. Snooki says, “I like it when my name is in the news,” and both admit to having a “thick skin.” Jwoww attributes this to the very harsh reaction they received when the show first aired, stating “..when the show first came out [the press] was so negative. So we had to learn how to deal with it right from the jump. People love to hate us.”
It sounds like the tough women of Jersey Shore could give some overly sensitive housewives a few lessons in how to deal with being in the spotlight. However, they do claim they are victims of bullying (whether or not it systematic, is anyone’s guess). Snooki calls herself “[probably] the top celebrity that is bullied today.” She goes on, “I’m just different and everyone hates me for it.” JWoww even claims that they’ve impacted government policy: “What we do on the show — people say we’re alcoholics. We get discriminated against for drinking. And we’re tan so now we’ve caused these tanning taxes and we’re getting a bad rap for tanning.”
Like the recent interview with roommate Sammi Sweetheart, Snooki and JWoww also believe that the cast’s intelligence is underestimated due to their antics and wardrobe choices. JWoww says: “It’s like you don’t know me to judge me. We’re sorry we’re not walking on the shore with three-piece business suits or evening gowns.” I suppose all those clips of the cast discussing economic policy and the upcoming 2012 presidential election are being left on the cutting room floor!
As for the ladies’ future career aspirations, they have both set the bar pretty high. JWoww wants to be like Angelina Jolie and travel the world, while Snooki wants to follow in the steps of Jessica Simpson and her business success:
JWoww: Angelina Jolie. Not the acting — but I’m obsessed with her. I know that she gives half her paycheck to charities but she’s also knee-deep into it. She wants to make a difference. And I think that’s what separates her from a lot of celebrities who just do it all for a write off. She’s just so passionate about it. And I want to be passionate like that when it comes to animals and children. I’ve never experienced what she’s experienced and I keep hearing that if you go to a third world country it’ll change your life. And that’s what I want.
Snooki: I would say Jessica Simpson in terms of her business and her brand. She’s a genius and she’s a business woman and that’s what I want to be. I admire her a lot.
As for the next ten years, they have pretty traditional goals and want a husband and children. But, both would appear to still want to be on our televisions. JWoww is cautious, saying “I hope reality TV is still around in 10 years,” while Snooki is far more confident in her belief that we are stuck with her forever: “It will be. And if it’s not, I’ll just tape myself and put myself on YouTube.”
