While the fourth season of MTV’s Jersey Shore premiered Thursday night, fans are still talking about the shocking new appearance of Jenni “JWoww” Farley.
JWoww, 24, surprised fans with her significant weight loss as well as what appears to be a very different looking face. In fact, many fans chimed in on twitter while the show aired.
One fan tweeted, “Omg jwoww lost alot of weight! she looks weird.” Another added,”Yea she looked too small! & her face looked really tight.”
JWoww, who has always been open about having breast implants, has never admitted to getting work done on her face. UsWeekly however speculates her face looks enhanced by injectables like Botox to her crow’s feet and forehead, as well as possible fillers around her nose and mouth.
JWoww took to her twitter to comment on all the speculation. “Flattered I’m the topic of tabloids.Funny what people assume when u lose weight and tone. Loving the stories…,” she wrote. She also posted some new pictures from her Maxim photoshoot. Those are below!
Meanwhile, it doesn’t appear the Jersey Shore phenomenon will be dying down anytime soon as the show continues to be a mega hit!
Ratings for Thursday’s premiere episode are out and over 8.8 million viewers tuned in to watch the MTV stars take on poor Italy. That marks the best season-premiere performance ever for an MTV series according to the network. In comparison, CBS’Big Brother averaged 7.3 million viewers the same night.
TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JWOWW’S NEW APPEARANCE? WERE YOU SHOCKED?
Jersey Shore in all its trashy glory is returning; so hold onto your pouf and get ready to move to Florence, Italy for the Season 4 Premiere!
So what can you expect from this season’s Italian adventure? According to Executive Producer, SallyAnn Salsano: “The dynamic is supercrazy and explosive and yet more caring.” SallyAnn also relays being thousands of miles away from real friends and family, the cast had to rely on each other for support instead of bickering constantly!
While one might expect the Guidos and Guidettes to take to Italy like ducks to water, apparently the cast members had a difficult time adjusting to the lack of available facilities, i.e. GTL: We rarely made it to the gym,” says Vinny. “That’s unheard of for us. But it’s not really a big thing there. And these little weird streets that were built in the 1000s… going to the laundromat, you have to haul your luggage through friggin’ Italian villages. That made us stop doing certain things in our routine.”
The Guidettes also had some difficulty with Italian architecture, as apparently stripper shoes are not compatible with cobblestones, explains Sammi: The worst thing was the cobblestone roads and walking in heels. I had to buy a lot of flats, which I would probably never wear in Jersey.”
Despite the difficult surroundings, the cast still made sure to bring the drama to the max! And while no one is revealing the biggest conflict – apparently the Guidos were the source of most of the conflicts, without Angelina there to annoy JWoww, who reveals: “They were doing the catfighting.” Pauly D concurs: “You’ll be surprised to see the drama that sparks this year.”
There was one routine they didn’t have to give up, besides fighting: partying! “The guys, we went hard in Italy. There were a lot of entertaining nights,” relays Ronnie.
“Jersey girls still found us,” says Pauly D. And lucky for them “American college students are far easier to get home at night than Italian girls,” says Salsano. Well, she has a job I certainly don’t envy!
In other Jersey Shore news, it appears filming for Season 5, the last and final season, has already wrapped! Wow – these Guids move fast in more ways than one! To celebrate the end of an era, Snooki got her nose pierced! A picture of the pierced Snooki is below!
The cast also bid farewell to the very brave Shore Store, which was ballsy enough to employ them during their time on the Jersey Shore. After bidding farewell, The Guidettes decided to hang out on the roof one final time. I wonder what they’ll all be up to next?
Jersey Shore premieres Thursday, 8/4 at 10/9c on MTV. A preview of the upcoming season is below!
With less than a month until the August 4 premiere, MTV has released the official season 4 cast photo of the Jersey Shore cast!
In the above shot, the cast is all glammed-up for a late-night run through the streets of Florence, Italy where they filmed the fourth season from May to June.
As reported, the cast only got a one week break before they began filming the fifth season back in Seaside Heights, New Jersey late last month. The new season will debut Aug. 4 on MTV at 10/9c.
In other Shore news, after almost losing two cast members in a span of one week, TMZ is now reporting MTV has laid down the law!
According to TMZ, MTV has now instituted a zero tolerance policy for future cast runaways. Sources close to production reveal the network is very serious this time stating that if another cast member tries to walk off the show… that person will be fired, and the remainder of his or her contract will be terminated. No exceptions.
This is apparently a power play by the network to reassert some authority after two cast members nearly bolted in the same week. Vinny Guadagnino actually left the show for a week after complaining of being “burned out” only to return a week later. While Vinny was gone, The Situation also threatened to quit the show but returned hours later.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE CAST PHOTO & MTV THREATENING TO FIRE CAST MEMBERS IF THEY LEAVE THE SHOW?
It appears MTV”s genius plan to have theJersey Shore cast film seasons 4 and 5 back to back without giving them a break continues to backfire.
Just days after Vinny Guadagnino quit the show for good, it appears The Situationmight be following in Vinny’s footsteps. According to TMZ, The Sitch actually walked off the show on Wednesday, expressing his frustration with the producers, before ultimately returning. Sources tell TMZ The Situation has been antsy lately even telling producers he doesn’t need the show.
And while TMZ is stating Mike is back in the house, another source tells UsWeekly that might be temporary. “Mike walked off the show. He’s so over the whole thing,” an insider says of the 29-year-old MTV star. “Everyone in the house is so unhappy.” Yikes.
The above photo was taken on Wednesday after The Sitch got into an argument with show producers, ripped off his microphone, and stormed off.
Without Vinny and Mike, it seems the show might be in big trouble. Perhaps the cast’s care free attitude also has to do with the report that MTV is planning to replace them after season 5.
In other Shore news, Jenni “JWoww” Farley is bringing her wow factor to the latest issue of Maxim magazine. The non Italian native strips down to some barely there lingerie in an all new spread. JWoww tells the mag her celebrity crush is Leonardo DiCaprio and her turn off includes guys who call her “JWoww.” She also reveals she was excited about filming in Italy because she actually studied art for seven years. More sexy shots of JWoww below!

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE SITUATION POSSIBLY LEAVING THE SHOW FOR GOOD?
Less than two weeks after departing Florence, Italy, the cast of Jersey Shorehas returned to New Jersey to begin filming season 5! In fact the above photo of the cast was taken this week back in Seaside Heights.
And while the cast was kept in seclusion in between filming (MTV reportedly wanted them to keep their chemistry in tact) DJ Pauly D, 30, (he’s 30 years old???) was allowed to fulfill a hosting gig over the weekend in Las Vegas.
PEOPLE magazine caught up with him during which he dished about the upcoming 4th season of the show. “It’s more of the guys getting into the drama,” said Pauly D. “We’re used to it with the girls, but this season it’s a lot of the guys … I think it was as much drama as there was in Miami. Yeah, we got ourselves into some crap. Somehow we always end up OK. There was some serious stuff going on there.” And that drama will include The Situation and Ronnie getting into a fist fight.
When asked about the news that MTV plans to replace the cast after their 5th season, Pauly feels the new cast will have some big shoes to fill. “I think we’re irreplaceable,” he said. “I don’t think they could replace us. They’d just be people trying to be like us, anyway.”
Meanwhile following a widely reported break up in Italy, it appears Snookiand her ex-boyfriend Jionni LaValle are back together. The couple was photographed holding hands and kissing this week as the cast reunited with their loved ones, whom they hadn’t seen since leaving for Italy.
A photo below of the Snooks with Jionni, plus JWowwwith her boyfriend Roger Matthews. The 4th season of the Jersey Shore premieres Aug. 4 on MTV.

TELL US – ARE YOU EXCITED ABOUT THE UPCOMING SEASON?
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?
It’s official, the fourth season of the Jersey Shore will premiere on August 4!
While the cast continues to film in the city of Florence, Italy, MTV made the official announcement this weekend. The press release promises the cast will “bring their trademark hilarity, fist-pumping and family dysfunction to the beautiful country” of Italy.
It gets even better as MTV has also green-lighted a fifth season. Yes, the network also announced that Season five will begin production in June. Once filming ends in Italy, the entire cast will return to the surf and sand of Seaside Heights, New Jersey right away to begin filming.
TMZ is however reporting that the cast is currently unaware of MTV’s plans to start filming season five right away. The cast was under the impression they would get a one month break and start filming in August. In fact, most of them are booked for club appearances all through July.
Sources say the cast will NOT be happy once they hear the news as they would rather get a break from filming and make money doing club appearances. The sources also add that the cast could decide to band together and stage a revolt. Oh the horror.
What is certain is that the 4th season will be filled with drama. As we reported, the poster couple for dysfunctional relationships, Ronnie and Sammi, are once again back together and fighting. Ronnie and The Situation also got into a fist fight which left Ronnie with bleeding knuckles and The Sitch with a shiner on his face. Plus Snookicrashed into a cop car though she was left unhurt. Should be a fun season!
TELL US – ARE YOU READY TO SAY G.T.L. IN ITALIAN? EXCITED ABOUT THE UPCOMING SEASON?
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.
