Uh oh Jersey Shore, fans could the fifth season be their last? For the guidos and guidettes of Seaside Heights it seems being the drunken party animals embarrassing themselves on television has grown old now that they’ve had a taste of fame and fortune!
HollywoodLife reports that according to a source close to the show the cast members are over it! “The cast just isn’t as close as they once were,” the source reveals. “They are all pursuing their own projects, clothing lines, perfume lines and several of them want their own spinoffs. There’s a lot of competition and they all feel like they’re famous enough in their own rights to continue on without the show.”
“Pauly Dhas been trying to secure his own reality show for a while,” a different source explains. “Mike [The Situation] wants his own show but no one really wants to go forward with it and Snooki and JWoww were trying to get their own show.”
JWoww has already confirmed she is filming a spinoff with BFF Snooki and is hopeful the plot will include them going on a road trip.
Jersey Shore’s Fifth Season airs on January 5th on MTV.
WOULD YOU WATCH ANY OF THE JERSEY SHORE CAST IN THEIR OWN SPINOFF OR SHOULD THE CAST STAY TOGETHER?
It’s all about the Jersey Shore ladies today. Snooki is headed to court, Sammi ditches the extensions and talks Jersey and JWoww launches a bikini line to go with her new body!
It’s another Jersey Shore lawsuit and this time Snooki is being sued. Uh-ho! The pint-sized poufflette has been slapped with a lawsuit for $7M. The NY Post is reporting that the recently svelte Snooks has been countersued by licensing company SRG Ventures. Snooki claims she saves her money — and it’s a good thing just in case she has to pay up!
Last year, Snooki partnered with SRG Ventures company to launch a line of Snooki merchandise — because that’s just what everyone wants — but filed a suit against the company in October to end her contract claiming SRG did not fulfill contractual obligations to net her enough money or branding partnerships.
SRG retaliated and filed a mult-million dollar counterclaim against both Snooki and her management company, Neon Entertainment (yes, I know — two things that go together like bread and butter: Neon and Snooki. SRG’s counterclaim accuses Le Snooki of sabotaging the deal by negotiating with other brands “behind SRG’s back” and not following up sufficiently on development deals they arranged, such as: Snooki-school supplies, watches, shoes and lingerie.
Snooki’s rep calls these claims ridiculous, stating: “Ms. Polizzi disputes SRG’s version of the facts and looks forward to her day in court.” We shall see how this all hashes out. Maybe they should all go get drunk at The Shore and work things out the Jersey-way!
Moving along to other Jersey ladies, Sammi has been the subject of a Jane MakeUnder! The mag straightened her hair, scrubbed her face, exfoliated the fake tan away, put her in some clothes that cover her lady bits and voila! Classy! Photos of a de-Jersified Sammi are below.
While she was getting her Jersey Shore image washed away, Sammi talked to the mag about the new season and how things are going in her life. Thankfully she is still Ronnie-free! Sammi claims she is “nervous” about the upcoming season, but “excited” and reveals that she is actually closest to cast mate Deena Cortese.
“Deena’s actually my best friend on the show and outside of the show, we hang out all the time, we talk all the time,” Sammi reveals. “She balances me out. She’s loud, crazy and extremely positive and fun and I’m more calm and collected so we kinda balance each other out.”
As for who she doesn’t get along with, the answer is very clear: The Situation! “I just don’t get along with him at all; he’s crazy,” Sammi explains. “Mike’s the troublemaker in the house and I think he loves it. He loves to stir up the drama, that’s just who he is.” But despite their tumultuous relationship he still has a place in Sammi’s heart. “He’s a part of my family, he’ll always be a part of my family… but he’s like that brother that you just never really wanted.”
As for her relationship status, Sammi is definitely still single! “Right now I’m single,” she shares. “Ronnie’s cool. We’re really good friends, I’ll always love him, but I’m working on myself and my career and doing what’s best for me.” Good for you, Sammi! Stay strong, but not steroid strong!
Surprisingly, this season their relationship was pretty low-key. “You’re not gonna see too much drama with the relationship because there barely was any,” Sammi relays. How boring!
Sammi also dishes on The Situation’s supposed financial situation and his situation with Snooki! “I have no idea what even goes on with the Nicole and Mike drama,” Sammi confesses. “For some reason, I don’t know, I feel like something did happen between them. Nobody knows because they have their own issues and beef with each other in Italy and that definitely falls out and carries over in Seaside, so I mean, I don’t know what really went on with them but they used to be best friends and when we go back to Seaside it’s just madness.”
For the upcoming season, Sammi says expect the usual! “The whole Mike and Nicole drama thing is definitely gonna happen again, and then the whole Nicole and Jionni thing, but that’s really it. In Seaside we really got along — you see less drama with me. Of course, there’s gonna be hookups, partying … the whole nine yards.”
You can read the rest of the interview at xojane.com; it’s a good read and she discusses her life away from the shore, what she thinks of her other castmates as well as her beauty routine!
Finally, JWoww has released the sun worshipper’s dream bikini line! Using her public persona to confront the important things to a Jersey Shore girl, JWoww has partnered with Perfect Tan to release the Perfect Tan Strapless Stay-Put Bikini. That’s right — no tan lines girls! Never again worry about sitting up unexpectedly while sunbathing only to have your boobies exposed to the world. Thank goodness Jenni has offered a classy solution to a very important sun bathing dilemma!
Photos of her Perfect Tan Strapless Bikinis are below. I have to say, pretty hot if you’re into that sort of thing! The line is available in February 2012. Just in time for Jersey Shore’s fifth season!

In response to The Situation‘s lawsuit against Abercrombie & Fitch, the company apparently believes they’ve done nothing wrong and The Situation has no grounds to sue them after they supposedly banned him from wearing their clothes and then referenced his famous phrases on two of their t-shirts! The company is accusing The Situation of having both a baseless lawsuit and of being unable to take a joke. Seriously.
The Situation filed a lawsuit against the company for knocking off slogans he claims he trademarked. The trademarks in question G.T.L and The Situation, of course!
Abercrombie & Fitch now denies the Jersey Shore star has any grounds to sue them “because he doesn’t technically own the trademarks in question… he only applied for them.” According to TMZ, A&F claims The Situation’s application for Gym Tan Laundry has been “suspended” because MTV “already owns ‘Gym Tanning Laundry,’ and the US Patent & Trademark Office thinks they’re too similar.” Oh my…
Despite the trademark issues, Abercrombie also believes that producing the shirts in question is actually protected under a law that “allows parody as part of free speech.” Not only that they were meant to be a joke and The Situation should get a sense of humor! The Situation has yet to comment on Abercrombie’s claims.
In other Jersey Shore news Snooki has been on a diet! And girl looks good! Revealing her new bikini body on Twitter, Snooki has been dieting and exercising diligently — and it has paid off. “So happy I’m at my goal weight I was when I was in high school! Feelin fit is amazing and can’t wait to tone up hardcore,” Snooki tweeted. And to complete her total transformation, Snooki asked Santa for a pair of “knockers” like JWoww‘s! Photos of a bikini clad Snooki are below.

DOES THE SITUATION HAVE A CASE AGAINST ABERCROMBIE & FITCH? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SNOOKI’S NEW BODY?
CLICK THE CONTINUE READING BUTTON TO SEE THE SNOOKI PHOTOS!
JWoww a.k.a. Jenni Farley is known for her over-the-top sex appeal, but in a recent Maxim spread she looks equal parts gaunt, exhausted, and old — was this supposed to appeal to the vampire lovers amongst us? Basically the cover is a hot stinking mess of ugly. Where’s the Photoshop when you need it!?
JWoww was so excited to land the cover of the infamous mag she claimed to have “cried” when she learned the news, but I’m wondering if she cried when she saw the pictures! Yikes!
Fans of JWoww are concerned that the booby Jersey Shore beauty, who has become somewhat of the surprising voice of reason amongst the other cray-cray messes she shares a home with, looked well, not quite herself save for the über cleavage.
Talking to Maxim, JWoww dishes on last season’s Italian fiasco adventure, Jersey Shore’s upcoming season and how to girl fight like a pro! “It was insane,” she says about last season’s trip to Italy. “I’m glad we’re going back to the Shore now, because Italy was hard.”
“Even rewatching it is pretty intense! It’s very emotional, and I was there and lived it. But we’re fine now, and that’s the best thing about us,” JWoww says of the extreme filming situation. “We watch it together and laugh at what we went through.”
“We definitely had to rely on each other, which made our relationships stronger, but also made us more sick of each other. Temperatures were running high. People were fighting. Heads were hitting walls.”
Even worse than the cast-wide drama was the lack of available GTL solutions! “There was no tanning situation,” JWoww laments. “I opened JWoww’s Tanning Salon and was spraying everyone myself just to get by. When we got back to Jersey, we kind of OD’d on the tanning. We all burned our asses off pretty bad.”
But Italy wasn’t all bad. There were some amazing adventures the castmates experienced together. “Italy was an especially amazing place for me, because I was an art history student. And besides the statues, I got to see the streets where, like, da Vinci and Michelangelo lived.”
While JWoww is glad to be back in Seaside Heights for the upcoming season, Italy isn’t over yet! “A lot of the drama that came from Italy has to get finished. So you’ll see that.” If MTV fears fans may tire of the same old drama, Jenni disagrees. “You could put us anywhere, and we’d make a great show.”
Fans can expect more of the same that made the cast famous in the first place. “We’re back at the T-shirt store and living in the same house,” Jenni explains. “We appreciate it more because Italy was so different. We jumped in headfirst.” Despite her excitement over the gang getting back to their old antics, JWoww thinks she’s definitely grown up over four seasons. “I was in a bad relationship during the first two seasons, so I took that out on people I shouldn’t have. I was definitely more of a bitch. ” And now, she feels more like “the mom” of the house.
She may have cooled it in the bitch department, but JWoww can still throw down. Her advice for guidettes in drama? “Pull your hair back. You don’t want some bitch yanking on your hair.”
As for what’s next? “Me and Snooki just started filming a spin-off. I hope we go on a road trip,” she shares. Oh boy…
Now onto those so-called sexy shots! Is JWoww sick? Hungover? I think it’s just the result of some bad, bad make up and terrible lighting making her look washed out and flat. That said for a men’s magazine who wants to sell sex, it’s not very appealing. You can view JWoww’s photoshoot below. Maybe they were going for an artistic vibe…
JWoww has faced accusations of plastic surgery in the past but brushed it off as weight loss, which could explain the gaunt facial expression. After JWoww posted samples of the shot on her Facebook page, some fans reacted negatively with one accusing her of looking “plastic.” And another fan chastising her for her “new” look: “STOP having messing up your face!!!! You looked so good before it all !!!!!”
“Fame got to her head. Be original Jwow.. How more plastic can you get??” a different fan lambasted. Not everyone thought she looked like a Twilight extra, many fans thought she looked hot no matter what!
And yesterday on The Wendy Williams Show, JWoww again denied plastic surgery! “They say I got my cheeks done, they say I got my nose, my chin. I just lost 15 pounds, and it was all in my face and neck,” she asserts. “That’s what was insulting to me, because I was like, ‘What did my nose look like 15 pounds ago?'”

Jersday will soon be back for all you Jersey Shore lovers! Also back? Seaside Heights as the Guids return to their roots on the infamous Jersey Shore. <fist pump>! Snooki is calling it “the best time of my life.” I’m calling it ca-ca-ca-caraaazeee! Oh and bloody and boozey and bronzey.
In the fifth season the entire cast returns and things get even more risqué as the sneak peak features a drunken and delushous Snooki taking a pee someplace that’s usually reserved for the family pet. Vinny Guadagnino apparently has enough as he vacates the house. “This is real. This is a reality right here. Vinny’s out of here,” Pauly D declares. The trailer promises many drunken nights, many bar fights, many pranks, many grenades and much ado about everything. Oh, and The Situation is bleeding.
The Situation and Snooki will continue to go at it, and this time Mike is also targeting the pouflette’s then boyfriend Jionni LaValle and promising to disclose a secret. Uh oh! Deena Cortese swears that the cast is more like “brothers and sisters” and the bickering never lasts long. “But you’ll see, we had a lot of fun in Jersey; we had so much fun. We were home, we were comfortable.”
“We’re back in our habitat and I’m ready to tear the speakers off this joint,” The Situation promises. Oh, you know you can’t wait! Check out the sneak peak below!
Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, January 5, at 10 p.m. ET/PT. Get your cocktails ready!
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE PROMO? ARE YOU EXCITED OR ARE YOU OVER THE SAME OLD DRAMA WITH THE CAST?

Is he or isn’t he? Broke, that is because a new report is stating that Mike “The Situation” Sorentino has blown millions of dollars ($10 million to be exact) living the lavish lifestyle of an A-List celeb and now has nothing left!
And that lawsuit The Situation recently filed against clothing retailer Abercrombie & Fitch for approximately $4 million in royalties and damages? It’s possibly because he needs the money!
In Touch Weekly is reporting that theJersey Shore star’s spending habits rival none other than Kate Gosselin’s – except he doesn’t appear to use coupons. Despite netting over $5M in revenue in 2010 alone from “appearance fees, endorsement deals with Vitaminwater and Reebok, his own fitness video, a “GTL’ app, a rap song and a book deal”, a former friend of The Situation is reporting that he has blown all of it!
So what has he been spending on? Luxury cars, several Rolex watches and diamond chains, plus not one but TWO Bentleys! Even worse, The Situation, whose “big head and cruel lies have left him without a friend in the world” is now paying his brother Marc and several former friends to follow him around constantly acting like his entourage! “He’s so cocky, he thinks he can spend like an A-lister,” the former buddy explains.
“He has nothing left,” the source reveals. “He won’t stop spending money.” And the constant income stream may be drying up soon as the mag suspects The Situation’s popularity is “plummeting.” “No one is paying him for appearances anymore,” the friend continues. Even worse for The Situation, the spin-off show he has in the works isn’t taking off! “Forget his Ferrari, he’ll be back in a crappy car before he knows it,” his former friend concludes. This sounds a bit like sour grapes to me…
Well, The Situation is calling all of these allegations preposterous. Speaking to In Touch, he claims it’s all lies! “I haven’t wasted my money,” he insists.
“I know that there’s a beginning and an end to everything. I’m very conscious of that, so I save my money,” he explains. “Any of those crazy gifts that I have that people hear about — the Ferraris and Lambos and all that I have — those things were either gifted or came from an endorsement.”
As for the speculation that he won’t be earning big in the future– nonsense! The Corporation (yes, The Situation has his own company apparently) has a lot of big deals in the works! “I’m looking towards the long-term and the future; I do own percentages of most of the companies I’m a part of,” Mike describes. “My vodka line, Devotion Vodka, the first protein-infused vodka, is doing awesome. I have a tuxedo line with FLOW Formal, and there should be a Situation ringtone coming out soon.”
In other Jersey Shore news poor cheating Ronnie Ortiz-Magro still pines for his ex-Sammi Giancola following their latest break up! My how the tables have turned! Sources report to HollywoodLife that Ronnie was seen in a club “especially drunk but was visibly depressed.”
“He had tons of girls trying to get all over him but he refused all advances and everyone was saying that he missed Sammi,” the source recounts. “He refused to hook up with anyone!” Did someone call the paramedics?
Things are very different for Sammi, who doesn’t seem to miss Ronnie at all! “She’s doing great! She’s really focused on herself and her career outside of Jersey Shore,” a different insider explains. “She has a new fragrance coming out and a men’s fragrance. She’s doing her right now and staying out of the drama.” Oh, please let this be the official, official end of Ronnie and Sammi!

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATIONS FINANCIAL SITUATION? DO YOU THINK HE IS BROKE OR SMARTER THAN HE LOOKS? DO YOU BELIEVE RONNIE AND SAMMI ARE DONE FOR GOOD THIS TIME?
Well, Abercrombie & Fitch you can’t have it both ways! You’re either with The Situation or you’re against him!
A few months back Abercrombie & Fitch publicly offered the GTL-lovin’ Situation money to stop wearing their clothes; issuing a press release claiming his affiliation with the company was bad for business and could do “significant damage” to their brand after Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino was photographed wearing it while filming Jersey Shore.
Then, the company followed up by creating t-shirts that clearly infringed on the skankerific star’s trademarks! Yes – Abercrombie & Fitch began selling shirts on their website emblazoned with “The Fitchuation” and GTL-You Know The Deal” Hmmm… that is oddly similar; shockingly so – I wonder where on earth they got the idea for “The Fitchuation”? Photos of the t-shirts in question are below. Now the shunned Situation is fighting back in court!
The Situation is asserting that despite Abercrombie advertising that he was offered a substantial amount dough if he gave up the brand, he was never actually offered that money at all and he is accusing the company of using him as a “marketing ploy” in the hopes to “draw attention to Abercrombie’s fashion line.”
And from now on, GTL officially stands for Gym, Tan, Lawsuit because The Situation is suing the company for violating his “trademarked slogans without permission,” claiming the t-shirts clearly infringe on his “trademarked Jersey Shore references.” Which, after all, is the nonsense that made him famous!
The lawsuit filed in Federal Court in Florida this Tuesday alleges Abercrombie “embarked on a worldwide advertising campaign using Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness to create brand awareness for its products by falsely claiming that [the company] had offered money to Sorrentino if he would stop wearing Defendant’s goods.”
Through his lawyers, The Situation contends that as a result of A&F’s “publicity campaign” they “profited off the use of a false affiliation with Sorrentino.” The suit also proclaims the retailer “wrongly used Sorrentino’s name, image and likeness for advertising purposes in violation of applicable law.” Oops — publicity stunt gone wrong A&F!
As a result of Abercrombie & Fitches’ blatant copying remarkably coincidental borrowing effort, The Situation is asking for a trial by jury, $1M in royalty payments and $3M in damages. Hey – according to Snooki he needs the money…

THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATIONS SITUATION? DOES HE HAVE A RIGHT TO SUE? CAN YOU BELIEVE ABERCROMBIE THOUGHT THEY WOULD GET AWAY WITH THIS?!
Jersey Shore’s pint-sized Guidette, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, sat down with GQ for what she called her “first interview ever” and talked the girl behind the poof, changing Jersey Shore and how she wishes MTV would portray the cast members as the “intelligent” people they really are.
Apparently, Ms. Snookers went to college! Oh and in case you’re wondering if the New York Times best selling author is a reader – she’s not. “I don’t read,” she said. “I just used the CliffsNotes, books were too long.”
Snooki is well aware of the public’s perception of her and the cast mates, explaining “they just think that we’re stupid, that we have no education, and all we do is drink, have sex.” But she wants everyone to know she’s actually very smart! “I went to college,” where she studied Veterinary Technology! Yes – Snooki can actually assist in operating on animals and, yes, she wore leopard print scrubs! In fact, she would love to return to school and get her Vet Tech license.
Snooki also revealed she is bothered by MTV’s portrayal of the cast of Jersey Shore and how it pretty much ruined her image by making her look trashy, trampy, and totally vapid and if she were in charge things would go very differently. “I wouldn’t show as much drinking and partying. I would show more of us chilling out and having a good time — which they don’t show,” she laments. “We don’t even drink those nights, but we laugh all night. They don’t show anything but us drinking and hooking up.”
As for what motivates MTV to only show the negative (re: trashy) behaviors of the cast, Snooki thinks it’s all about the Benjamins! “Maybe because of the success of the show, they think that if they don’t show us drinking and hooking up then it wouldn’t stay successful,” she muses. “I think that if they showed the sober side of us people would like it even more and it’d even change people’s minds about us.”
Whatever the perception of the show, Snooki thinks it’s absurd when people get upset about the words “Guido” and “Guidette”. Asked about some people comparing the terms to the N-word, Snooki calls those claims “ridiculous” and explains that while the N-word is “seriously offensive”, Guido is not. “’Guido’ is used as a lifestyle — like being a prep, skater, gothic. We’re Guidos. Plus, I’m not even Italian!”
Snooki rebuffs accusations that Jersey Shore has given her city and state a bad reputation. “They need to get over it,” she snaps. “We’re not representing Jersey.” New Jersey Governor Chris Christie unfortunately disagrees and was so disappointed with Jersey Shore he denied MTV’s tax credit, which is doled out to encourage filming in the state. Mr. Christie sent a letter to the network stating he was “duty-bound to ensure that taxpayers are not footing a $420,000 bill for a project which does nothing more than perpetuate misconceptions about the state and its citizens.”
Making it clear that success – and the money that comes with it – hasn’t gone to her head, Snooki revealed that her outfit cost “like 50 bucks!” The reality star reportedly made $750,000 in the last year alone, but is very conservative with her money! “I save it,” she insists. “Jersey Shore is going to end soon. I’m not going to spend money like Mike [The Situation]. He’s already broke!” Yikes!
As for what’s next for Snooki, theDonald Trump fan (who even said he would get her vote for the GOP presidential nod) is expanding her brand! “I’m actually trying to get a clothing line together. I have perfume and tanning lotion, eyelashes, nail polish…” She also has a new novel, Gorilla Nation, coming soon! Furthermore, Snooki is making a cameo in two movies and hopes to land a guest spot on The Office!

THOUGHTS ON SNOOKI’S INTERVIEW? DO YOU BELIEVE THE CAST OF JERSEY SHORE IS INTELLIGENT AND MISREPRESENTED BY MTV? DO YOU THINK THEIR BEHAVIOR ADDS TO THAT MISCONCEPTION? ARE YOU SURPRISED SNOOKI IS GOOD WITH MONEY?
